Yucky & Poo. Boots & Tweed

Share Button

Yucky is one way of describing how I feel.
Poo is could be another.

Anyway, you get the point. I’m feeling rough, but as a mami you don’t have a choice but to get out of bed and go about your day. In my case, with my main man Little M. 
I really didn’t feel like wearing jeans, especially because they may just be a bit snug around the waist (okay, okay! I’ve gained a few and need to lose them ASAP!) 
Today was a hang loose kind of day. So I pulled out my comfy knitted blue dress that ties at the waist, black leggings and striped white and black top. It was like being in PJ’s but better looking. I dug out my knee high low heeled boots and tweed blazer and I was good to go. And forget makeup. No way. Just a ponytail and sunnies. 
I really didn’t have anywhere to go, but I did take the little guy to get his hair cut then did some food shopping and we made Chilean alfajores, mmm!
Oh and it being love day and all, I wanted to look presentable when the Mr. got home. 
And you know when everything in the day seems to go wrong? 
Yeah, well, no chance of getting any good pics. First Little M wanted to be held. Then he wanted to be in the pictures. Then he wanted to take the pictures. It was way too much drama and I gave up. These images describe my day perfectly…hazy, blurry, and messy.
But I just had to show you how gorgeous this H&M blazer is and the boots I snagged at TJ Maxx a few months ago. I love the elbow patches and the leather collar on it – perfect to liven up any outfit. 
And the boots…oh the boots! First I’m happy I found something that fit around my calves and second they have amazing insoles which make them super comfy for walking around. 
So that’s it for me. I’m still pulling out clothes from my boxes and suitcases. So each week I discover something new. 
How was your Valentine’s Day? Did you wear anything special? 
Knitted dress: Gap
Striped long sleeve: Primark
Blazer: H&M
Boots: Arturo Chiang from TJ Maxx
Leggings: Walmart

Embrace and Rock Your Curves with NEW Lee Curvy Fit Jeans

Share Button

This is a sponsored collaboration with Redbook and Lee Misses. All opinions are my own. Jeans are never easy to shop for and over the years I’ve come to realize that it’s not just me. All over, women are not fully satisfied with the way their pants fit. One thing I cannot tolerate is the gap in the back — ahhhh drives me insane. I’ve never had a problem with it myself, but I’ve been “exposed” to it many a times. My {Read More}

Embrace Your Inner Nerd, Go Book Worm Chic

Since I could read I have loved books. I could finish a book in a weekend, I’d volunteer to read aloud in class and a new book was always on my list of things to buy. Along with my love of reading, I was blessed with 20/20 vision despite desperately wanting glasses as a child. I know, crazy! I’d even pretend to struggle on my yearly eye exam at school. Each time I was sure I’d given an Oscar worthy {Read More}

A Hand Model’s Daily Beauty Routine

Share Button

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of AmLactin. The opinions, text and severely dry hands are all mine. Aside from freshening up my hair with dry shampoo, applying BB Cream or a light foundation, adding a dab of blush and giving my lashes a much needed boost with mascara, part of my morning beauty routine is moisturizing my hands. Especially now with the colder weather and drier air. They don’t get just dry, they CRACK and peel {Read More}

Sleeping My Way to the Top (VIDEO)

I am in no way proud of the fact that I was suffering (I’m recovering now…working on it every day) from massive sleep deprivation. No, not tired. But actual full on sleep deprivation. As in, I didn’t sleep for more than 4 hours. And when I did, it was not good quality sleep. With the depression, anxiety and general work, it was just part of the toxic mix I was in and I couldn’t get out of the vicious cycle. {Read More}

5 Ways to Maintain Your Sanity During the Holidays

This is a compensated post in collaboration with Children’s MOTRIN and The Motherhood. All views and the ideas to keep sane are my own.  It’s here, IT’S HERE! The holiday season that is. Even though it’s two weeks away, it’s still HERE. That’s not an exciting shout, it’s more of a “Ay Dios mio how am I going to do all of it?” kind of shout. Every year I say I will be organized and every year I’m not. I end {Read More}

Click here to view segment   Today on Let’s Talk Live it was all about the DADDY’S! Fathers are more involved in parenting now more than ever and when it comes to gear, they want a say too! In my case, my husband was the one who found and selected our stroller, he Bugaboo Frog in 2008. He liked the solid red color, the feel and that it was easy to steer and didn’t look “too baby like.” With the {Read More}
