Hello helloo my lovelies, been a while since the last post but I promise to stay more frequent going forward. How has 2018 been treating you so far? How many goals nipped in the bud and how many are a WIP with a 2018 DEC deadline :), well i have 5 things lined up for this year and have already finished off with 3 of them 🙂 (pssstttt…..)Well who am I kidding, none have even seen the light of the day. Better said than done, right
This weekend we took some time off and drove to Tampa and oh boy, that was the best decision ever. The weather was absolutely amazing and perfect for a getaway from the cold temperatures here in Charlotte. We basically stationed ourselves at the beach for almost two days with all the necessary supplies all stocked up right around our beach chairs. Anyone remember the friends episode where Joey and Chandler are seated on their newly bought recliner chairs and stocked up everything around that’s exactly what we did, only there weren’t any Monica’s, Rachel’s or Phoebe’s to get our supplies that were over :D:D. And then off course since the weather was so so good i took the opportunity to flaunt this pretty summer dress i recently bought, around Tampa downtown. Seriously you guys, this is the most fun summer dress especially to flatter the winter bodies not ready for the summers (wink wink……), par exemple moi :P. A few clicks below of the pretty Tampa Downtown which was oh so beautiful and the pretty dress :).

Hello heloo my lovelies, have been MIA for a while, blame it on the 2018 work schedule that started with a bang and all the travel between Boston and Charlotte. Nevertheless will always find time to do what i love doing the most playing dress up :D.
Any one in the house, a fan of bright and colors, ce serait moi!! I hate the neutral/monochrome dull colors and just find them super boring, i rarely dress myself in them and if i really do need to wear that color palette i make sure to pair it with all the possible colorful jewelry and a colored pair of heels to match it. Some might term that to be a bit over the top, hyperbolic, color exaggerated fashion sense for a lack of a better word :P, but hey, no judging her right!!! Dress the way that makes you happy and lets the endorphins flow strongly, cause the happiest girls are the prettiest!!!!!
And talking about colors, like every other girl, pinks my absolutely favorite color. On entering my room, no one would ever second guess that its not a girls room 😀 , i literally have furniture that’s pink all over, now that’s a bit much, but after a long tiring day of work my room puts a big smile on my face, so purpose served:D. On the same note, teamed this oh so beautiful and colorful velvet pull over with a pair of leggings , a dark green cami and a PINK pair of heels :). Well actually this was a wrap dress, but for some reason didn’t really look flattering on me, so just decided to use it as a pull over that worked super well in the current Charlotte temperatures.
The dress and shoes are sadly out of stock now, have linked a couple similar ones at the end of the post though.
When my feet were too tired for the 4 inches a shoe change 😛

Grrrr…its crazy cold here in Boston this week. Cold enough to frost my fingers and use it as an ice stirrer for my cocktails…….phewww!!!! From all the cold snow news, the hot news is ZARA’s is on sale :D……Happy Dance 😀 . It being one of the clothing stores I absolutely love for their unique and out of box styles, and since they are a bit heavily priced for my ethics, their sale is an absolute welcome to me. And so packed up in my woollies and warmers, i braved the winters and made it to the Zara’s store on Newbury st, Boston. I could have shopped online, but for some reason I fancy the idea of trying on my clothes before buying them. I know its a little old school in this day and age of online shopping, but I find the idea of personally shopping in the stores more appealing and saves the trouble of returns allowing you to buy stuff that fit well and look good on you. Anyone else feels the same?
I scored a couple of good buys from the store yesterday and even strutted around wearing an ensemble for the love of dressing up and some pretty pictures in snow laden Boston. Who else loves wearing all their new buys the very next day as soon as you buy them? I plead guilty :D…. All who know me personally, would agree i seldom repeat my clothes. I try not to buy very expensive apparels, unless off course, i see something that makes my heart flutter until i buy it, confessions of a shopaholic, but those are rare times :). Seen below is a look i put together from the Zara’s sale and couple of more items i might have purchased :D. And yes pardon the location, on this snowy and cold day, i could only dare dance around in my mere sheer leggings and dress outside my apartment :P…Talk about harsh winters hampering things 😦

On a side note, had picked this really pretty colored Michael Kor’s sling bag during the thanksgiving sales, i got this bag and another one in red each for under $60….and that’s a good price for an MK …yay :D:D
All in all have put together all the items from the Zara’s sale that i thought were worth the bucks. Click the images below to shop the styles.
