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.

Sleeping Beauty

Something about the crisp air and fall like temps that make me want to stay under my duvet and work from my home office….

Or maybe build a bed in my office?

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?

Separation Anxiety

I took a mini break from blogging  and it was invigorating. But I missed you guys too much to stay away any longer, I’m suffering from separation anxiety. Your comments made me feel wanted and when I feel wanted, I deliver.

I was super busy and out of balance this summer, ya know having fun – cottaging, cocktailing, bronzing, glamping, road tripping, shopping and golfing (otherwise known as sitting shogun in the cart, stroking my fellas ego, sipping Ceasers and bronzing my legs). My gallivanting had gotten the best of me. Now that summer is winding down and my drink of choice is sparkling water I’ll be delivering as much as possible, oh how I’ve missed yous!

Cheers to a great Summer….

Happy hump day!

The Weekend.

Original right.

The weekend was filled with indulgence. Like 6 bottles of wine a few cider tallboys and Mini Egg kind of indulgence. No worries, I shared. I attended two dinner parties, one game night and broke my public swimming pool virginity, it was amazing. I’m paying for it now – it’s Monday, I feel slow and all I can think about are carbs – oh, and how ashamed I feel that I was the only one at the public family pool wearing a Matthew Zink bikini, serious case of the ‘mons’.

Next weekend I’m going cocktail free, I already have it all planned out. Loading up with Kicking Horse coffee, buying all the plump spring issues of my favorite mags, and heading into the big city for a stroll and brunch, just typing it feels refreshing!

My ‘next’ weekend….

A stroll n shop in the city..I’ll be wearing pants.

Happy Monday!

Feeling Centered

It’s time to switch up my part. I’m taking it from the left side to the center.

The center part is making a strong comeback for spring. 70’s glam makes me happy. Anything other than 90’s era grunge-punk makes me happy…

Centered…

I pretty much want LC’s hair…

Grammar and vocabulary often are lateralized to the left hemisphere of the brain,  I’m hoping a center part will balance my brain function and I’ll fruit my best writing yet?

Get centered.
