No Shopping?

Or I can wear the clothes I have in my closet. Either way, I am always up for a challenge! I will not let my shopping spirit be crushed! I will not be defeated! I promise.P.S. I will be back on Twitter and FB…


I’m not going to let the looming L.A. rain discourage me from dreaming of warmer days ahead.Yes, I love the rain, but that doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate a clear warm day every-now-and-then!Those are the days I love to throw on a tank top with a pair of jeans or a skirt.Today’s tanks come from Delias.

It’s definitely a Monday. So blah when I woke up…so uninspired…until I turned on my television.If you have “On Demand” go over to the Sundance Channel and watch the documentary “The Red Carpet Issue.” It’s a behind-the-scenes look at how the red carpet, fashion, designers, and celebrities come together to form this mega-money making business. It’s pretty interesting. It’ s broken down here in 4-part previews. Enjoy!

Pretty in Paisley

Sometimes, I like to dress a little girlie. When this feminine mood strikes, I throw on a skirt and a frilly top. Believe me when I say it doesn’t happen very often. But, it does happen. Today, was one of those days. I am in love with this paisley skirt! I found it at Macy’s for only $7.99! I told you I’m a bargainista! This is my first time wearing it. It makes me feel…
