Belly Baring

I’m cleansing you guys – because it’s Summertime and baring your midriff is big this season.
I scoured the Internet until I found a doable detox program and the Four Elements Cleanse seems doable. I’ll eat high fiber fruits, veggies and grains and drink a mixture of apple cider vinegar, lemon juice and cayenne pepper for the next 7-10 days. Easy peasy. Except I make everything extra difficult for myself. I overindulged this weekend so I’m starting off puffier than usual and craving a Fritter like a mofo.

It’s been three hours. I have a headache. I want a cup of coffee. I’m gagging over the detox drink. I’ll let you know how I’m feeling in a few days. Happy Monday!

All I Want to Wear for Christmas

So lookit. It’s been a long time. I get that you’re probably wondering if I’ve crawled into a cave with Channing Tatum, but the truth is, he’s married. I know you don’t want to hear excuses, but I wrapped up my 7 year corporate career, took some time to smell the hydrangeas, discovered a few new things about myself, and slept. A lot. Or slept-walked through the shoe department at Holt Renfrew, but listen: I’m back.

And I feel amazing.

For those of you that loyally read this mess, it’s true that this time of year makes me giddy as hell. I don’t know if its the pretty little flakes falling outside my window, perhaps its the catchy jingle with Mariah Carey and Jimmy Fallon that’s lighting up my iPod, or the excitement of dressing a little glamorous and wearing sequins and Ruby Woo to all the holiday parties? Whatever it is, can you blame me, It’s such a peaceful, sparkly, cheerful time of year!

As I sit here tapping my sequin slippers to “All I want for Christmas” I want to share with you a little compilation of “All I want to wear for Christmas”. Warning: textured tights, sparkly shoes, sequin trimmed blazer, and gold ahead – might cause rapid heart beat, excessive smiling and holiday fever.

Sometimes you just need to stop and smell the hydrangeas, slip into something sequin and shake your little a*s to some Christmas tunes to get in the spirit.

Sweater Weather

So apparently the formula for fall is as follows: Sweaters, booties, chunky sweaters, layers and ….. Sweaters.

It’s officially sweater weather, basically crawl into the perfect sweater and hibernate under it till spring.

For me sweaters and boots are easy as hell. I love fall.

Comatose

I ate stuffing and mashed potatoes four days in a row. Hence, I am the opposite of sexy, which I think is frumpy right? I long for water and cardio.

I’m still comatose from the long Thanksgiving weekend, so feast your eyes on these lovely fall photos that have me craving a cozy photo shoot with my man.

Fashions Night Out, Cupcakes and Lipgloss…..

Stylish ladies in five-inch heels hit Lemonberry Boutique last night for Fashion’s Night Out. They were there for deals, cupcakes, the braid bar, social scene and a grab at Lemonberrys signature lipgloss. Love! I did my part at the cupcake table and spent my weekly salary on some amazing pieces. I don’t have any regrets on either indulgences.

This weekend I’m going to try to remember I have hobbies that don’t involve staying out until 2 AM and spending all my money on clothes. I’m going to work on my website, organize my fall wardrobe and take instagram pictures of my organizing skills and lounging and maybe a nap whilst lounging. Oh and exercise. I should probably do some of that too. Thank God it’s Friday right?!

Here’s my FNO in pictures, sorry for my lameness I’m too tired to go into detail.

Fine Wine.

Yes, yes I love my wine. However this post isn’t a guzzle my glass social alcoholic kinda post, it’s a I’m a shopaholic kinda post that supports my thirst for wine colored denim, Bordeaux glazed nails, Merlot lips and deep ruby booties.

I need to work overtime to nourish my wine fixation (both).

You can assume jewel tones will be my Fall uniform. What’s going to be your go-to chilly weather style?

I’m feelin the red wine in so many ways… I think it’s those burgundy booties in the last photo that are really speaking to me.

Taking it personally

Guess who woke up this morning and decided she was in desperate need of a personal day? A completely responsible, extremely organized individual would spend this glorious, office-free almost-summer afternoon with her laptop on the back deck playing catch up and sipping sparkling water. Happy Friday!

This is where I started my morning….

Happy Friday!

Quickie.

The number of photography-related apps on my iPhone is a prime case of my addictive personality. My latest craze is Fotolr PS. It makes quickie collages for quickie blog posts. This is my week so far in snapshots.

I spend most days running around to see clients – in heels that are way to high for my own good, sipping coffee and applying lip gloss . This week got a little adventures, I received beautiful flowers, got 2 out of 10 nails painted coral, had a Tuesday evening impromptu visit to Margarita Island with my girlfriends and flew a kite. Bold, right? Happy Wednesday!

A quickie, on hump day.. how convenient.

Wear This, Drink That….

It’s sunny and fabulous outside, the perfect afternoon to ring up a few friends and meet for some patio time! Cocktails at 6 anyone?

I’m ready for my 9-5 to be over and my happy hour to start.

Wear This…..

 

 

Drink That……


Lemonade, lime vodka, water and a splash of tonic in a mason jar…yummers.

A letter to me.

Dear me,

This is going to be tough to hear.  Every once in a deep cobalt blue moon, extremely rarely, immensely never, you are wrong.  I know it sounds nuts and beyond the bounds of possibility, but sometimes your big beautiful brain full of magnificent ideas can get the best of you and saying “yes” to everything doesn’t work out in your favor.  Let me explain:

Last week you gave your readers nada, zip-pity zip, nothing. It wasn’t that you had nothing noteworthy to write about, cause you did – it was that between work, social events and side jobs you agreed to a million and five projects and forgot to schedy in some Jaclyn time. So listen – try to be more realistic from now on. Stop being such a creature of habit and extending yourself to wafer thin widths.

Now back to reality. How fabulous are these?

Oh how I’ve missed yous!

Happy Monday.
