Wait . . . what?

So it’s been a long while since you’ve heard from me (in case you didn’t notice).  It’s true the holidays really just keep you so busy you don’t know when to stop and take a breathe!

I guess if I want to continue in chronological order I will have to go back to my birthday trip to Disneyland which was at the beginning of December.  I went with my sister and my two nephews and let me tell you it was SOOO much fun!  But wouldn’t you know it, California is in the middle of a terrible drought not a drop of rain in months and the day I decide to take a day off from work to go to the happiest place on earth it RAINS! Boooo!  I’m just sorry the pictures aren’t that great because of the grey dark skies.  But it was still so much fun not even rain could damper my birthday and Christmas spirit!! Thank you Dad for getting me a ticket and thank you sister for taking me to celebrate my birthday with my favorite people!!

Beauty Mini-Haul

Yesterday I ended up at CVS during my lunch hour with a post-it note stuck to my phone so I could pick up a few necessities. After scanning my CVS card at the machine I ended up with 3 foot long paper coupons which was nice because I ended using 2 including a $5.00 rewards! YAY for me!

I’ve been thinking of going a little brighter on my lips (I think thanks in part to the lovely Rosie at A Red Lip and A Nude Shoe ). So the night before I perused the internet for some lovely bright lips. I screen shot some photos to keep on my phone for reference but as I ended up at CVS  I totally forgot I had saved those pictures.  No worries, when I got back to work I realized I actually happened to pick one of the lipsticks I had saved!

Being that I was venturing into unchartered territory wearing bright colors on my lips, I really did not want to spend a lot of money in case I didn’t like it on me or if I chickened out.  So these fit the bill.

I ended up with the Wet n Wild “Dollhouse Pink”  – I love it  Now I just have to get used to it!

CVS was having a buy one get  one 50% off sale with Wet N Wild so I also picked up nail polish called “Through the Grapevine” (yes I could’ve  picked this because of my tiny obsession with wine. LOL)

I also bought necessities. I’ve used Neutrogena for a long time but I have never tried this new product.  Hopefully it will do me some good! Clean Face = Happy FaceIMG_6660

OOTDs

Time to show some of my OOTDs. I don’t always take pictures because obviously they’re not always perfect but its good way for me to see what my clothes actually looks like on me. And sometimes the only item that looks cute are the shoes!

Exhibit “A”

{I wore these leopard pumps with a simple black dress and it actually looked cute but it just did not translate well on an iphone at work.}

{I have been looking online for the last month for a pair of white jeans. While looking in my closet one morning I came across these Old Navy jeans I apparently bought on clearance  a few months ago and totally forgot about it.  TRUE STORY!! I’m insane}

{You cant really tell but the skirt is navy blue and I’m wearing a black peplum top with it. I like it but is it a faux pas? kind of like brown and black together? which i have done before}

This was a grumpy selfie (carfie) I took on Monday for some reason (and posted to Instagram)  but I do love my House of Harlow necklace with this outfit. It’s actually a strapless jumpsuit that I wore with a black cardigan to make work appropriate.

and away I go . . . to opening day

Thursday is Opening Day at Del Mar Racetrack! This is like my Kentucky Derby and I am SO EXCITED! YES it will be CROWDED. YES there will be DRINKS and YES there will be FUN!
I have my hat ready and my dress ready, just need to get my feet ready for the day of walking back and forth between the paddock and the betting window and the track to see the winners cross the finish line.
I will be sharing pictures and stories with you I’m sure!

Snippets of my week

This week was busy for me at work which makes the week go by fast, which is a good thing and also a bad thing.  When I realize how fast time goes by its kind of scary because that means getting older. . .  BOO!!  but on the bright side the weekend is here YAY!!

Yes the fitness bug has bitten me (well so far)! This week I started doing a light run after work. I’ve been running (with some walking when needed) almost 1.4 miles around my neighborhood and you know what? it feels good!  I hope I can continue doing it because I have been known to start a fitness program and then stop! =(

{My Fila running shoes from TJ Maxx are really comfortable and they have a bright pinky orange trim}

20140613-142859-52139665.jpg

{Need to get this pretty pink cutie ready for some bike rides this Summer}

And the reason I need to start some sort of fitness program is because I have been consuming too much of this:
