C&C Chit Chat

Hey there curvaliscious ladies! I can’t believe it’s already June and summer is peeking around the corner. Wow! Spring just flew right by, without a care in the world.Not only is time flying, but there has been a ton of blogging ‘controversy’ going on. I’m not even going to elaborate on it, it’s sooooo not worth it. Drama will happen and maybe that’s a good thing. It gets it all out in the open and we all get a chance to learn from it and move on. As long as we are respectful when giving our opinions, I think the…

Beach Chic on a Budget

I’ve definitely been craving a day at the beach. I just want to grab my favorite magazine and a book and just lounge! When I was packing for San Diego last week, I realized that my entire beach outfit cost less than $35! That’s swimsuit, sun hat, and flip flops.Well, you must know I’m a budgeting master. And just because you’re on a budget doesn’t mean you can’t look chic on the beach, right? Well, the entire look I put together (below) was only $95.83! This is definitely a look that will carry you through the entire summer.Sandals by Forever…

Rest, Relaxation, and Simply Be

If I didn’t love the city of L.A. so much…I think I would move down to San Diego. We had a great bachelorette weekend. Nothing crazy…just rest and relaxation. I had the most amazing massage! I can’t stop thinking about it. It was a little overcast on the beach, but it didn’t stop us from having fun.I was very excited for this weekend! And do you know what made it a million times better? Maybe it had something to do with the package from Simply Be I received the day we left!! What a great time to try out new…

Daring Fashionistas: Beth Ditto

There’s nothing I love more than a daring fashionista! One who doesn’t care about the so-called “rules of fashion.” That’s why I admire Beth Ditto from the indie rock band Gossip! She wears what she wants and she kills it every time! Here are a couple of pics from events held in the last few months. I am head-over-heels for the black and white striped dress! I want it!

Feather Inspiration

It’s no secret that I love accessories. And when I go shopping, I have to check out what the latest jewelry trend is. The other day I went to the Grove, here in L.A., and couldn’t help but notice feather jewelry every where. Not peacock feathers, but bird feathers. I love that kind of post inspiration. Here you again my lovely bloggers…more inspiration and of course dumb ol’ shopping temptation. My apologies to your bank account.P.S. Love that hat!!More Forever 21…

Me and my Jeans

You know I adore a good pair of jeans. Here are a few ways I’ve worn them over the past week. A week that consisted of my best friend’s visit, Las Vegas, and the resort town of Big Bear. It went by sooo fast. I can’t believe it’s over and my bff is on a plane back to Maine. I’m kind of bummed right now and I’m trying to get back into my blogging routine. Maybe shopping will help. ;)As you can see, the shoes and jeans are pieces you’ve seen before. They are my faves. FYI…those are the heels…
