What I’m Wearing

I didn’t remember to take a photo this morning! Oops! (I had planned to blog this while waiting at the drs office with my 10-yr old!) so today we popped down to Redlands, and it was chilly when we left at 7am ( of course!!), so I had been wearing a cardigan, but not now!!


The Rundown:
Dress: Target
Shoes: Navy Christian Louboutin Simple 100’s
Handbag: Kate Spade
Necklace: Robert Rose (a Loehmans find I had posted earlier!)

Now I am home anxiously awaiting my mailman. He has my next pair of project shoes!!! Sooooo excited!

Until next time,


LA Last Week

Last Thursday was quite an adventure! My girlfriend who was visiting was headed home. We had a packed week, but no, it wasn’t enough!!!

So we got up early, my wonderful mother took all 4 children, and we popped down to LA. First we ran around downtown area, picking up fabric and ribbons for my weddings this past weekend. Then, the fun began!

First stop? Natural History Museum’s Dinosaur Hall. Epic adventure, it’s really unbelievable!! And it was empty so j managed to snap some incredible pictures on my Nikon. Here’s some iPhone snaps…..






I wish I’d has a video camera when Kara saw those bones. It was amazing!! I am going to have to bring my children down there to see it. My 10-yr old lives dinosaurs!!

So, after we puttered around. Went through La Break Canyon, and drove around. We were headed to Hollywood, as I wanted to hit the Christian Louboutin store. But then realized we needed caffeine.

In our quest for coffee, we found this lovely little store, “it’s a wrap”. Oh my goodness!!! Jackpot! They have clothing from movie sets! I snagged a pair of gorgeous white satin Stuart Weitzmans, $32. Brand new practical. The satin is dirty and the crystals are falling off, but I intend to dye them red and add red crystals. If I remember thy are from a soap opera, one life to live? I don’t watch much tv, so I’m unsure.


After several more stops (but no purchases), we ended up at Loehmans at the Beverly Center. I bought these items….



Shoes: Nina, $8
Necklace: Robert Rose, $12

And then I picked a few tops up from Banana Republic, got snubbed (hardcore at that!!!!) by the snotty SA’s at Jimmy Choo (unfortunate, I was wearing their shoes!), and we headed out for dinner with friends.

Our poolside feast:


And then we made s’mores. Well, I just burned marshmallows!!


After that I took a nap before I had to go to the LA Flower market for a 2am pickup. It was a fun but exhausting day!

I slept alot after I got home Saturday night, and today I’m ready for another action packed week!! No trips to Vegas though!

Until next time,

What I’m Wearing

I totally forgot to post this! I actually had two different outfits today, I started with a plain white t-shirt & pink eyelet skirt. But I got purple dye all over the shirt, and since I had a cake tasting scheduled, I did not need to look like I’d got home this morning at 4am!! (yes, I did though!!!)


The Rundown:
Dress: Banana Republic Outlet, around $10 on sale 2+ years ago
Shoes: Yellow Strassed Jimmy Choo flats
Handbag (not pictured): Black Kate Spade I drag everywhere!

Vegas was amazing last night!! We bought seats up in the “cheap section”, but we were upgraded to the 6th row from stage!! (inside the theatre) You could hear the singers without their mics! Just amazing. Totally worth being exhausted today and the 6 hours of driving.

I didn’t get many pictures, just this one of Kara and I on the bridge in St Marks Square


That bridge holds a special place in my heart, it’s where my husband and I were married two years ago!! Kara was here for the wedding, so we had to have a picture. Unfortunately we had to rely on my iPhone and a random person. But we went!!!

We did get a pro picture in the theatre. It came out really well. I’m excited about that. We made quite a splash, being dressed to the nines and all. I had so many compliments on my shoes!!

Some random Vegas shots I took



Yeah, two! The fuzzy closeup, and one shot in front of the Bellagio!

But it was awesome. And I’ve been baking all day. Huge weekend!!!

Cupcake anyone? (it’s a caramel spice)


Mmmm. Back to the kitchen for me! We are rolling cake balls and making lovebird cookies!

Until next time,
