Weekend Perfection

It’s actually embarrassing how much my life revolves around food and dogs. Good thing I’m secure with myself.

Our weekend was perfectly lazy…Home cooked dinners, a trip to the dog park, a couple naps and two Starbucks runs. I even made The Husband drink a few bottles of wine with me, we sipped vino tinto and crashed early……It was perfection.

Today my task is to find the perfect bed for our little daughter dog Georgia, I’m going to hit the ushe – Winners, Homesense, Target. If I’m feeling really ambitious, I may even try to craft one up myself, check out these clever dog bed ideas I found on Pinterest!

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.

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.

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.

Dream Bigger.

This past month has been hectic as hell. Between writing, my career, a few shoe reviews and my social agenda, I have neglected my blog and I feel really crap about it. I’m dreaming bigger, sometimes this interferes with personal stuff, like my blog and pedicures. I’m moody and feel like kicking my feet in a fit….I’m just tired and things don’t look pretty when I don’t sleep…or if I’m hungry. I’m like a toddler.

It’s time to organize my life….

I’m going to pour myself another coffee, put some lipstick on and get my sh*t together…

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.

Beach & Sun: Vacay Moments

I’m back! My vacation is officially over, like always it flew by way too quickly. It was a blissful, gluttonous, enjoyable 7 days – oddly enough I’m happy to be home, mainly because if I had stayed any longer I’m not sure I would have come out of it alive. Our days looked something like this….

9am – Breaky & Mimosas

10am – Walk to the beach & Pina Colada

11am – Beach cocktails commence

12pm – Ocean swim & Miami Vices

1pm – Lunch & wine

2pm – beach nap &  Mimosa upon wake up

3pm – Head to the swim up bar & margaritas

4pm – Poolside Happy Hour & Daily Martinis

5pm – more martinis…..

6pm – Shower & in the room Champagne

7pm – Dinner & drinks

8pm – Dessert & Aperitif

9pm – Lobby Bar & Cuba Libre

10pm – 1am – Disco, dancing & more Cuba Libres…

Sleep. Repeat.

Proof is in the itinerary that the possibility of overdosing from this boozy vacay was a bona fide concern.

It was a fabulous vacation with an equally fabulous group of people. I could get used to living in a warmer climate dressed simply in a kaftan and bikini, writing ocean side and indulging in daily (not hourly) happy hour!

Thanks to the beautiful Birthday girl for making this trip happen and to the wonderful people who were in our crew. The beach, a dose of sunshine, laughter and silliness were exactly what I needed to get me through these last loitering months of winter.

Poolside

Siesta Anyone?

Poolside two

Morning Mimosas

Beach Time

Piled High & Tipsy

Poolside kisses

Sunset on the beach

Dinner and drinks @ The Steakhouse

I couldn’t decide?

Punta Cana 2012

Glad to be back to my loyal readers….

Happy Monday to you, and happy first day of detox to me!
