Woah, today was kind of crazy! My husband had to go back east for work, I needed to hit the cake supply store, and so I took him to the airport. 

Um, OOPS. Actually it’s probably good I went with him, as I know all the funky back ways to get places, with all the construction on our main highway. But whew! It was rainy and awful both ways. (But we need that rain!!) I actually got to wear a cardigan today though! 


  1. Cardigan: Kate Spade (outlet, some still have them on major sale! Of course no more send sales, you have to physically visit the stores now. BOO)
  2. Skirt: Basil & Maude
  3. Shoes: Kate Spade

Don’t forget to check out my blog sale!

Until next time,



Oh my, it’s been a week!! I have been caught up in buying loads of Lilly for Target goods for various Instagram ladies! And making a couple hundred French Macarons!

Yesterday I wore this:



  1. Cardigan: Kate Spade (currently available at outlets!)
  2. Top: Banana Republic
  3. Skirt: Vintage
  4. Belt: Target
  5. Shoes: Christian Louboutin

And today, inspired by all the Lilly pieces being shipped to Florida!

  3. Shoes: Christian Louboutin, Strassed by me with Green Tourmaline stones

Hope your week is going grand! Until next time,



St Patrick’s Day

Wait a second, St Patrick’s Day isn’t until Monday!! That’s right, but you see I had it in my little blonde head that it was today. Which in reality is kind of a good thing, as it means for once I was ACTUALLY PREPARED ahead of time!! Thursday is my bible study day, so I suppose that’s where it came from.

Since, you know, I like to bring sparkly fun things to my little group of ladies on Thursdays. Hey, they need some sparkle action!

Our table & goodies (all assembled by yours truly):




Aren’t the little bags of lucky charms the cutest?! I snagged those from Pinterest (which I don’t use all that often, because it is addicting!). I intend to tuck one in everyone’s lunch boxes on Monday!

And I went festive in my dress today, which btw, the last time I wore this dress was February 9th! How do I know this? I found a receipt in the pocket!!!




Cardigan: Kate Spade
Dress: Kate Spade
Belt: Kate Spade
Necklace: Kate Spade
Shoes: Montana Strass Christian Louboutin

Hmmm, it seems I have a Kate Spade problem!! Even worse? I have two charge sends in transit with ups from a location I ordered things from. I’m super duper excited about it! Reality is, they are early Birthday/Christmas presents, but this way I can enjoy them all year! My husband spoils me. (Heck, I spoil me!!)

After that though, it’s time to put myself on a small shopping ban. Not too long, as we have trips coming up that put us in MAJOR outlet shopping territory, but perhaps turn off eBay, except for selling. My only saving grace is that I have been selling a lot of items lately in various places, so it covers anything I’ve bought off eBay. But still.

I still have my blog sale up, I need to update as items have sold. Please feel free to make offers, I will combine items and discount them, as all pricing does include domestic shipping.

Until next time,



Thursday is always an odd day for me. The kids have early release at school, plus I have bible study, and sometimes also end up going to work. Today was no exception, well, except work was at my house because I’m baking like a madwoman still!

But I decided to pull out some sparkle this morning:





Cardigan: Target
Dress: Kate Spade
Belt: Alannah Hill
Shoes: Kate Spade
Bag: Kate Spade
Necklace: unknown

Of course in addition to all the macarons this week, I have a small cake to delivery tomorrow. Some teasers:



Zebra, shimmery glittery pink AND hidden mickeys?! Yes please!! Can’t wait to throw it all together. I know the birthday girl is going to be thrilled!

In addition to the dress sale I have going on, stay tuned for my 2-year blog anniversary giveaway!! I just received the last piece of my “puzzle” today and I am SO excited to share this!! Especially as it’s things chosen by me.

Until next time,


Giveaway & Blog Sale

Two quick things this lovely Sunday morning.

1. Giveaway. Ends tonight! All comments on my post must be posted by 11:59pm PST tonight. Any any email entries must be received by then.

2. Blog Sale. I will keep this up until sometime this week, and then I will probably be looking to ebay everything and/or sell privately on another site. Make offers, I would love to see everything go to good homes! It’s wasting away and collecting dust, unloved in the vortex of my closet.

And I believe that will be all today. We are working around the house & yard, I have piles of laundry and housework to catch up on, etc etc. The joys of being a wife, mother, and custodian of a rather large house.

Until next time,
