We arrived! The Engineer and I made it to our destination, checked into the nice hotel, the one I’m not ashamed to check in to via Facebook! We got cleaned up, and here’s what I’m wearing this afternoon:


The Rundown:
Cardigan: Old Navy
Blouse: Banana Republic
Skirt: Custom by Sandee Royalty
Belt: Black belt stolen from my Kate Spade Anemone dress
Shoes: Black Décolleté Christian Louboutin heels
Handbag: Kate Spade
Necklace: Robert Rose

Also, if you don’t follow me on Instagram, you didn’t see my most recent picture:


My caption? “Leave home for 36hrs, take 4 pairs of shoes, two pairs strassed!”. I realize I was incorrect, we are actually gone for about 72hrs including the fact that I went to work with The Engineer yesterday and we left the house at 5:45am!! In fact, I brought more pairs of shoes than changes of clothing. But see, it’s one pair of heels, and one pair of flats for each outfit! And my gold strassed Jimmy Choos for travel. (just wait, I intend to have only strassed shoes for my DC trip in October. Why not?! I have glue and extra crystals, might as well enjoy them all)

Have a lovely weekend! I’m sure you will see more from me.

Until next time,

I also did 4 dozen cupcakes for a birthday, and a graduation cake that I have to finish assembling.

Yay! And I am done until August now. I love what I do, but time off is also important.

Until next time,


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,
