Pink Love

I’m headed to the office this morning, so I of course made an attempt to dress the part. Not that she cares all that much, but I have to say, it does make it easier when I am in and out of banking institutions!


Cardigan: Ann Taylor
Dress: Calvin Klein (worn a little over a week ago, but it’s so bright and cheery!)
Shoes: Christian Louboutin (heels are not going to happen, not after the 10+ miles we walked yesterday!)
Necklace: The Cute and Sparkly Wife
Belt: off my Lela Rose for Target dress
Handbag: Kate Spade

Now you ask, what is this “The Cute and Sparkly Wife”? It’s something I’ve been working on, accessories and other odds and ends. It hasn’t officially launched yet (probably another couple of weeks, still waiting on graphics and packaging), but in the meantime I simply have not been able to resist wearing some of my sample pieces!!

My necklace:


I’m sure as time goes on I will share more bits and pieces here and there. Don’t worry, this blog is not going to turn into a “buy my stuff” ad. I will mention when I wear pieces from the line and that’s about it. I do normally post links to small business, so it will be like that.

Anyway. Enough of that! My bag & shoes:


Happy Monday y’all, I hope you have a wonderful first day of the week!

Until next time,


Cosmo Cake

My oldest son’s “sphere”. He decided glitter in 5 colors would be “wicked awesome”, so I hand-blew it.

Pictures don’t do it justice!! It looks like a bazillion tiny stars in a galaxy! It’s nothing perfect, I really did throw it together, but he loves it!

Inside is mint truffle cake. Mmmmmmm


Another angle (this one looks more blue & green)


Love the top


We aren’t doing cake until tomorrow, so I did these little pieces for tonight.


Mmmm, cake! And off I go to finish the purple pants cake for my now 10-yr old! (that one is a surprise)

Until next time,


What I’m Wearing

Whew, busy morning!! I totally did the 50’s housewife thing and made a huge breakfast. And then in the middle of that was my “oh my God we are going to die in the rubble” moment when tht tiny earthquake hit. (yes, I know, I am insanely dramatic. I own it!)

So today, I’m channeling my inner 50’s!!


The Rundown:
Cardigan: Target ($6 on sale!)
Dress: Vintage Lanz, purchased at a vintage shop in Crestline, CA. I replaced the buttons, it had ceramic hearts, but 2 were missing. $40
Belt: thrifted, $1
Shoes: red patent Jimmy Choo’s
Handbag: Black Kate Spade
Necklace: Kate Spade

I know the red and yellow combination is rather odd, but I like the effect. I will ditch the cardigan quickly as its warm today!

I also got my new kindle cover last night!! $30 on eBay, and it’s Kate Spade. Soooo bright! (and the saying on it, that is some!)







I so have my nose in a book and my head in the clouds!

Until next time,


What I’m Wearing

It’s going to be hot again today! (it got super close to 100 yesterday!!) I have errands, a massage appointment, and lots of car time today!! So I’m keepin it casual.


The Rundown:
Cardigan: Banana Republic (thrifted by my sister)
Blouse: Target, $4.98 on sale
Shorts: Kate Spade (also worn yesterday)
Shoes: Black Flats from Ross
Handbag: Patent Purple Kate Spade Bon Shopper Tote

My handbag


I imagine these shorts and another white pair that I own (also Kate Spade) will make many appearances this year! I wear alot of skirts, but sometimes shorts, when it’s this hot, it’s just easier!!

Don’t forget to comment on my giveaway post for your first entry into my contest! Giveaway And see the other ways to gain entries! I will post an update soon as well.

Stay cool! (and you east coasters, stay warm!)

Until next time,


What I’m Wearing

Sadly I bruised my toes the other day, so my shoe choices are very limited!! (poor toesies are all black and blue!!) I need light open sandals that are either loose or slightly big (today its the latter)


The Rundown:
Blouse: Banana Republic Outlet, $9.99 on sale (also worn on Monday)
Skirt: Banana Republic, off eBay (under $10)
Belt: Kohls, $2 (on sale)
Shoes: Ross, $10
Handbag: Black Kate Spade Elena (microfiber) Christmas present from my better half.

My bag


I actually don’t own a black leather handbag! I used to have a gorgeous Prada one, but after 7+ years of lugging it around I traded it with someone for something new.

I should remedy that!

It’s going to be gorgeous here today, 85+ degrees! Yay!

Until next time,
