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.

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…

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!

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.

Be All Ears…

I’m the kinda girl who needs to have earrings in and mascara on at all times when I leave the house. I throw studs, diamonds or silver knots in my earlobes for everyday then swap them out for something interesting when I wanna play.

Recently I invested in a cute pair of fish gill earrings – LOVE them. I didn’t take the dangling things out for my entire holiday, I mean, they totally suited the by-the-ocean-poolside theme so why would I? (as seen here)

I’m going to glam up my typical everyday studs with some fresh and wild ones…

Club Manhattan earrings

I can’t get enough of the carcass-animalia-serpant inspired accessories, call me kitschy but its way better than boring.

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

I won’t exhaust you with anymore photos -I took over 300.

Glad to be back to my loyal readers….

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

I have some fabulous ladies dropping by to share a few bits and pieces with you and I am super stoked about it… you’ll be in amazing hands.

So for the next few days ill be lounging, cocktailing, sunning, beaching, dancing, eating, laughing….and doing whatever other ings I can think of. Time for me to throw my hair in a top knot, cloak myself in a bikini and kaftan and see you lovelies in a week!
