Oh Sh*t it’s Monday…

I woke up this morning totally thinking it was Sunday. It’s Monday. So rather than a mimosa on the back deck, I settled for coffee and almond milk in my home office. Oh the hardship we bear.

This made my coffee-instead-of-mimosas-morning much better!

Happy eff’in Monday!

Melting…

It was too hot to be inside over the weekend, so the bf and I packed up and headed to the lake for 3 days.

We sipped an over-sufficient quantity of  cocktails, took back a lofty amount of sugar, danced like teenagers on the beach, golfed at an amazing course and ate like kings and queens. It’s almost embarrassing how much our relationship resolves around food. Thank god we’re secure with ourselves.

Melting….

Sugar, sugar, sugar. Mimosa, mimosa, mimosa….

I love summer.

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.

Love is in the air

Whether you’re single, or taken or somewhere between – I wish everyone happiness and love on this St. Valentine’s Day!

Love is in the air…..

And in the end, the love you give is equal to the love you get….

Happy Valentines Day!

My Big Plans: 2012…

Happy 2012! Expected, I’m still recovering. While I’m not usually a big believer in making tons of promises that you know will never be kept… I have to say I’m very into the idea of making some serious changes in 2012. I tried not to be too ambitious with my new years resolution picks. It’s good to set goals, it’s good to be enthusiastic – attempting to curb reckless spending would be effing fantastic!! Whatever, I’m excited to have a clean slate – I think 2012 is going to be fabulous!

Do sh*t that gives you butterflies this year….

I’m happy to be back, I missed you guys!

Putting On The Glitz

First off, I hope everyone stays bundled up for their winter party hopping over the next few weekends/weeks. Second, I hope you take the time to put on a little glitz! This time of year it’s okay to be overdone anytime you walk into a room, after all, you probably just came from a holiday soiree or are on route to the next one! (or at least that’s what you could say?)

Find your perfect shade of red lipstick and pair it with cat eyes and an Adele style teased chignon, or try sleek waves and a dramatic side part with one side tucked behind your ear. Pull out your chandelier earrings, stick something in your hair, wear anything sequin, go with a cocktail  party dress or whatever you have that’s fur and lace – and just go with it. Have a ball, make yourself feel glitzy and if anyone has something to say about it tell them to ‘fa la la la’ themselves!

Lace…

Red Lips…

Side Part…

Fur….

Sequins…

Happy weekend everyone. Keep it real festive!

4inch Puddle Hurdling

Today’s going to be another wet Autumn day. I refuse to let the rain dictate my footwear so as it stands, I am going to be attempting puddle hurdles in my 4 inch heels.

I love the rain,  there’s something particularly romantic about it. Maybe it’s the way it falls on the window pane and the sound it makes in a still room, or how it compels me to crave coziness, comfort food and cuddles? Not sure. What I do know is that for a moment I will not subscribe to any notion that dressing for work in the rain means dull or duckboots, those are for the weekend people!

 

 

 

Hope you get through your rainy days with love…

The Sweetest Th’ing'(s)

This long weekend was utter perfection. With nothing too planned on the agenda and hot, summer-like weather I relished in a little C&R (cocktails & relaxation). From being lazy in the a.m. hours,  cottaging in the Muskokas with some great peeps, to celebrating my lovely fathers birthday, I was one happy girl. The best part was the warm air that lasted well into the night. It almost felt like a crime to be inside at all so I spent as much time outside as I could.
 
August long weekend is a sad hint that Miss. Summer is almost done her stay. That being said, I’m taking the next few weekends and doing the sweet things I love with people I adore. I plan on brunching, cocktailing, shopping, dancing, laughing, eating, napping, swimming, cottaging, boating, reading and partying – pretty much the same thing I’ve been doing all summer long, only with lots of love!
 
The Sweetest Things:
 
 
Laughing – til it hurts…
 
 
Cocktailing – with Mr. Grigio
 
 
Swimming – in a lake
 
 
Partying – with good friends

 

Brunching – with my birds

Napping – in the sun

Dancing – on a table

Do the th’ing’s you enjoy…
