Yay!! Yay boredom.

Spring it on Tuesday!

wpid-20150302_104441.jpgHi there friends and Happy Tuesday! It is a glorious day here and also HOT. But, OK for the most part. I hope your week is doing well! So, since it is very much on the warm up here I am stepping up my springy attire that can also be summer attire. And then give fall and winter a miss and go right back into being spring again. Got to love living in the south.

This is such a cute skirt that I got from sheinside. I buy a lot of clothes from them. But, that is OK. They have a lot of really cute things! The skirt is lined and is zip closure. I have already gotten banana hand treatment from the lad and it didn’t stain. The banana hands wiped right off. Good. This whole outfit is perfect for spring and hunting Easter eggs. Or even just strolling around looking at flowers or whatever the like. Perfect for hotter weather and the skirt falls right to the knee. And if you like comfort, well this skirt is that. It is comfortable.

Makeup Monday, coconut oil and healthy hair?

IMG_3353.JPG

Hello there friends!!! Happy Monday!!! Today I decided to do some much needed spring cleaning. And the first thing was to clean the oven. OH MY GOD. It is so smokey in the house that my son and I are confined to the screened porch. I am thanking God that today is a nice spring like day and not a overly hot summerish day.  I am cleaning the oven because something got on the bottom of my new oven and it was making things smokey when you cooked. I would really like to get back in the house and mop the floors but that will have to wait. I am not in the mood to be in that.

Today is make up Monday here on the ole bloggeroo..but instead of talking about that I want to talk about my hair journey. I as I may have stated before am trying to get my hair in to shape. And recently, well actually longer than that. I saw on Pinterest,my passion, pins for coconut oil as a hair treatment. AND I have to say in the few weeks I have been doing it, it has made a huge difference. HUGE! My hair is more silky and shiny. It also doesn’t frizz as much. I do a full on hair mask 1 time a week and then whenever I wash my hair I use it before I shower. For me, I think this is one of the best things I have done for my locks. My hair gets abused, what with the coloring and heat tools. I needed a pick me up and this all natural way is the best so far.

I use Viva Labs organic coconut oil and bought it really cheap on Amazon.  It is worth every penny of the $16.99. I also use a coconut milk shampoo and conditioner. As well as Argon oil.wpid-wp-1425319158976.jpeg

So, what I do is I take a a small hand full or enough to manage as this stuff is solid when you start out. Then I rub it in my hands. The heat from your hands make it liquify, I then apply to the ends of my hair. Until all of my hair is saturated. I then put my hair up into a bun on the top of my head and go about my day. Usually cleaning and chasing after my 2 year old.Wordless Wednesday is a perfect day for this.Then by a tiny child’s bed time I go and wash it out. It can take 2 shampoos and I still condition after. I let my hair air dry then. The results are just amazing. Try it!!!

Girls night out. Black and white.

Hi there friends and happy Friday! Last night I went out for a fabulous girls night out with my best friend. I decided to wear a really cute shirt from sheinside. It is a beautiful lace shirt with some jeweled details on the collar. I love this shirt. And I paired it with some imitation leather pants from HM. The great thing about the shirt was you really do not need much in the way of accessories. I wore simple fresh water pearl earrings with it.

It was $2 dollar drinks night for ladies night at the restaurant and I got a what is called a “plum blossom” it was a champagne and plum wine cocktail. Oh it was good. It is a sweet drink thanks to the plum wine and it had that effervescence that comes with Champagne.  I think I can make that at home. Seems simple enough. Some times a simple cocktail is the best cocktail. And I just wasn’t in the mood for a martini.

Outfit of the day, let’s be casual.

Hi there my fabulous and FIERCE friends! Yes, you are fab and fierce! Today is another day in potty training paradise. We are giving it another go. Wish me luck. Today being a day of this awesomeness, I opted for a casual outfit. Something simple but still adorable. Perfect for chasing a toddler and yet perfect for errands.

A white tank top, a great scarf, comfortable HM super skinny jeans, and the love of my feet, my boots from JustFab.com. This is a great outfit to have and go to when you have just so much stuff to take care of and do.

The other thing is any kind of scarf works and I love how a simple scarf can make as much of a  great statement as a gorgeous necklace. Plus scarves are just fun!

Outfit of the day Kensie inspired.

Hello there friends! I am hoping your day is well and fabulous! Mine is so far got a lot of stuff to post and spring is on my mind! While reading my current Vogue magazine for March I came across an add for Kensie. Which is a great line from B.C, and they have ladies fashion and kids fashion. It is a youthful line.

The outfit I was drawn to was this one below.

The white lace set reminded me of a set I have in my closet that is awfully familiar.

wpid-20150224_092630.jpg

I got this set from sheinside.com and love it! The Kensie set will probably set you back over $100 and this one maybe a little over $33.

wpid-20150224_092701.jpg

wpid-20150224_092721.jpg

The thing is with white like this be sure to wear nude colored undergarments. It will show other wise.

IMG_3303.JPG

This set runs small so order a size up. I am a small in clothes from Sheinside.com but after reading the reviews I followed the advice and ordered a size up. The shirt I did get in a size small.

IMG_3299.JPG

I it is a nice a cool outfit and perfect for hot weather and springtime. This outfit is so versatile that you can pair the skirt with different shirts, and the shirt as well. I love pieces that can be worn together as a set or as a different outfit. And I adore these gorgeous Michael Antonio sandals that I got on sale. I can never pass up a shoe sale.

Things like this just make me so happy.

                                                          Steal that style:

                                                  Top: sheinside here $18.33

                               Skirt: sheinside here $14.33 remember order a size up

                          Shoes: Michael Antonio similar here $49.99 (picked a nude color of the                                     same shoe I am wearing to match the Kensie ad)

Tuesday shoe shoeday! Blink

Hi there my fashionable and awesome friends! Well, it is another Tuesday shoe day! And it is great to show off my new patent leather shoes that I got from Heels.com from their BOGO.

IMG_3313.JPG

These shoes called Brandy by Blink are absolutely adorable! I love the patent leather and the little emblem on the back part of the shoe.

IMG_3314.JPG

These gorgeous heels come in different colors and even come with replaceable heel bits. They know that the heels in these shoes take a beating and sent replacements. Which is great in my humble opinion.

The Brandy shoe is made of man made upper and sole.  The heel height is est 5 1/2 inches with an 1 1/2 inch platform in the front. The shoe I got is a 8, these run a half size small. So, if an 8 order 8 1/2 if 7 order 7 1/2. I am a 7 1/2 so I got them in a size 8.

These gorgeous shoes are still part of Heels.com BOGO sale. Brandy by Blink is $49.99 on sale now!

It’s the manic Monday post!

Hi there my friends! Happy Monday! And what a manic and crazy one it is today! I have been victim of the tantrum day. Yay, motherhood. And potty training could be better. But, it is a process and patience is key here.

Today, I was going to post an amazing outfit, until right before we were to take pictures a certain mommy(me) spilled  breakfast all over it. So there went that. And so, I went for a different look. A crazed mommy look.

Behold the mom uniform today.

wpid-20150223_122807.jpg

It is hot out so, I opted for some nice shorts a simple top and cute ALDO shoes. Perfect for chasing a toddler around the back yard and house.

wpid-img_20150223_123114.jpg

I also since it is makeup Monday, have to say I am in LOVE with my Chanel pressed powder. Hey, even my hair says it is Monday.

 

wpid-20150223_122738.jpgwpid-20150223_124219.jpgBut, this tiny gift from my wee lad, made it worth the trouble of tantrum Monday. He gave me these teeny tiny flowers. It made it better.  Flowers make everything better. Don’t you agree, and what a thoughtful little man.

Sunday something.

Hi there friends and what a happy Sunday it is! Full of Sundayish things. Today is just one of those days where I have no idea what to say but want to say something. Extreme writer’s block. The joys oh the joys of it. This week I got quite a bit planned for the ol’ blog. And I can not wait to share it. Of course more outfits to show. And some interesting beauty reviews to do.
But, for now I am off to go clip some coupons and drink another coffee. Mmmm.
Here look at some flowers. Have a wonderful day!

Funny Friday!

Happy Friday everyone! What a fabulous and COLD day it is! I am sitting in the warmth of my house in a pull over sweater and not wanting to ever leave it. I had to venture out this morning and yeah, Ice.

wpid-20150220_090526.jpg

SO, these were the boots I was wearing today until my little guy decided mom should wear the red ones. With socks on. Um..

wpid-20150220_090532.jpg

Yeah, such a fashion statement. I tried to take the socks off and he got upset. He is having another rough day. We have had to numb the mouth a bit today. I can not wait for teething to be over. Seriously. I can not wait. Poor boy and poor mama.

thorinhaha

And it wouldn’t be some kind of funny Friday without some sort of LOTR meme or Hobbit Meme . I still haven’t seen the last movie..what is wrong with me?! That coffee by the way is delicious.

My life right now with the Battle of The Five Armies.

My life right now with the Battle of The Five Armies.

I am also working on some of next weeks blog post ideas.  Today, I should be cleaning but instead I painted my nails and read Vogue.  Hey, it is Friday.
