Whew!!

What an amazing birthday weekend! I am so blessed to have such a wonderful husband, family, and friends.I spent the first part of the day just being a bum. My hubby bought me some red roses (awwwwww). Later that night, we made our way to a cousin’s birthday party. They even sang happy birthday to me…it was too sweet. We partied until 3a.m.! I was paying for that this morning.I got $150 worth of gift cards…which I can’t wait to use by the way. So excited to go shopping! Of course I’ll keep you updated on what I buy. My…

Simply Simple

My hubby and I went out last night for a pre-bithday date night. Nothing fancy, so I just threw on a comfy and simple outfit and my hair in a bun. We went to eat at one of my fave resturaunts-Chyn King on 3rd/La Brea in L.A. So yummy! Then we went to the Little Bar…love this place. It was a chill night…one of my favorite kind of nights. Then I just sat there and counted down until midnight…second by second…until I was a year older. Blah! It’s OK…age is nothing but a number anyways. Lol. Right?Dress: Xhilaration, Target (on…

Wish List: Evans

Why won’t these amazing European stores, like Evans, open up boutiques in the states? Whyyyyyyy?I am so skeptical when buying something online, because I don’t get to try it on. But, that doesn’t really matter anyways because I am on my current shopping freeze. Blah!!Anywhoo…that won’t stop me from lusting after great fashion pieces, like the ones I’ve chosen from Evans below. Sigh…

Beauty Buzz: Nails and Lips

I was flipping through my new issue of Elle, when I came across the “Elle Beauty Obsession” page. I fell in love with this pic! The nail polish is OPI’s Hong Kong collection “Jade is the New Black” and the lipstick is Chanel’s Rouge Allure Lipstick in “Super.” I need the nail polish!! I found it on Amazon for $2.50!! I have to ask the hubby if we can fit this in our budget!

Style Trend: Leopard Print

Grrrrrrrrrrr…its all about leopard prints! That was my sad attempt of some kind of cat growl…lol. I’ve seen tons of chicas wearing it lately and this sexy print will pretty much always be in style. It’s fun and adventurous…just don’t be afraid to wear it. If you think it’s too much, just try adding an accessory with this print to a solid black outfit. Bring out the feisty gal!

Curvy Sports Fan

“It’s time for Dodger baseball!”Yes…I am a Los Angeles Dodger fan and if you’re not one…I’m so so sorry. Lol.This is me, yesterday, at the Dodger opener. It was a beautiful day. And of course we won!As a curvy sports fan, its hard to find sports gear that fits. I am forced buy a mens medium or large t-shirt and we all know the quality of the mens shirts are not very female-friendly.Today, I am a happy sports fan! I have found a few Dodger items in Plus Size (XL-4X)!! I love the touch by Alyssa Milano line. Too cute.…

Cuff Inspiration

Not only am I a “curvy” gal…but I have inherited my father’s huge hands! It’s so hard for me to find cute bangle bracelets that will fit over my hands. It sucks, but I know I can always try Torrid and Lane Bryant. And,I can always go with a cute cuff. Here is some cuff inspiration. More Kenneth Jay Lane…

Road Trips and Birthday Suits

I just returned a few hours ago from my second road trip to Arizona, two weekends in a row. My uncle is very ill and we went to visit him. I am pretty pooped but the 7 hour drive is worth it. I love that guy!! That’s why there haven’t been any posts since last week. Just thought I’d let you guys know.On a brighter note, my birthday is coming up this weekend and I would love to go out. In case I do, I am on the search for a party dress. Something in black and fun…but not too…

Sex and the City 2 Trailer

Sex and the City has been a love of mine since I can remember. Yes, I watch the late night reruns and yes, I’ve even imagined which one of the ladies I’m most like. Who hasn’t? I really liked the movie, but it wasn’t the best. So, I wasn’t too excited about Sex and the City 2…that was until I found out Aidan is in it!! He was my favorite boyfriend of all!! John Corbett is to cute!! I can’t wait to see it! Here’s the trailer:
