Hi dolls!  Here are some recent outfits... I have been on a spree cleaning out the closet and donating bags and bags of clothes to Goodwill (yet I am still holding on to my maternity clothes... Joey pants anyone?)  I have been trying to update and work more color and patterns in... unsuccessfully.

H&M top, Hue brown leggings, Cole Haan boots (got at Nord's semi-annual sale!), LV bag, Anthro necklace

Tucker for Target tunic, Gucci flats

I am currently obsessing over leopard, sparkles, and brown (trying to break away from black!)

Daily Dose of Pink

A little pink can make anyone's day brighter!

Poncho Love

I am totally coveting ponchos and poncho-esque sweaters this year.  Big and comfy and loose on top with some leggings on the bottom!

I just ordered the black one from White House Black Market.  They are offering 25% off all jackets and this poncho falls into the category!  I used code 9378.  

Also, trying to decide which route to take with the blog makeover.  Does anyone have any suggestions/recommendations or someone they would recommend?

What a weekend!

This was such a whirlwind weekend!  Make sure you go to Bloomingdale's to purchase an "Unforgettable" bracelet!  A portion of the proceeds will go to the Alzheimer's Foundation along with the $20,000 donation made on Saturday at the event.  Yesterday, hubs, bebe and I walked with Maria Shriver to support Alzheimer's awareness and loved every minute of it.  I even scored a super discounted new pair of Shape Ups! (don't knock em til you tried em!)

Now rocking NailEZEE's Lovie Dovie, a grey/purple shade that I loooove! Get yours at NailEZEE's site

OOTD - Mossimo leggings and socks, Steve Madden boots, H&M sweater, Stella and Dot necklace

Nicole Miller tunic (got it 70% off!), Gucci flats (also were on a discount), Louis Vuitton bag

At the Bloomie's event with's most fabby blogger!!

Bebe's flower ring that I made her

Bebe in a pink tutu from Target, Gymboree tights, Old Navy top, Disney sparkle shoes

I hope you all had a fabby weekend!

Don't forget...

Come to this amazing event tomorrow if you're in the Los Angeles area!

And check out the hilarity my husband helped make this week...

OMG, you MUST check out NailEZEE!  I was recently introduced to this brand of nail polish and have fallen head over heels in lurrrrve!  They offer three nail formulas that cover any and all nail problems and lead to amazingly healthy nails (pick them up on their site!)  They use the freshest ingredients available for nail polish so you feel like you are treating your tips much better (and are child friendly - bebe loves her current purple nails!)

I adore NailEZEE and so should you!

We have a fabby giveaway we are dyyyying to host but we need to get our readership up to 50 followers!  Tell your friends and post to FB and Twitter and we will be hosting another giveaway!

So, I picked this amazing little toy up last week....

Oh this is a happy, ridiculously easy to use coffee magician!  Just pop in the discs, fill with water, and voila, at the push of a button you have cappucino, lattes, coffee, tea... it is heaven!  I scored my Tassimo at Bed, Bath and Beyond with a 20% off coupon and another $30 rebate so it only cost about $65!  The discs cost around $8 - $10 a pack, but considering I regularly pay $4.50 for a sole latte at Starbucks, this makes it all worth it!  I'm obsessed to say the least!

Wanted to throw in these cute looks for the fall from Reese Witherspoon and Olivia Palermo.  

I'm always on the hunt for outfit inspiration and I am totally digging blue dresses with red heels!

Whip My Hair!

OMG!  I have been hearing the song and still cannot believe it is Willow Smith, but after catching a clip of the video last night I had to share this (not great quality) bit of the video.  This kid is amazing!

Outfit of the Day

Bebe helped me pick out this OOTD yesterday (aka outfit of the day!)  We had lots of errands to run after we had a fight with our FedEx man... grrr!  Bebe insisted on wearing her princess slippers she got for her birthday this past weekend and some snuggly pink pj's since it was in the low 70's/high 60's out.  This weather is so in between and hard to dress for!

J.Crew shorts, Tucker for Target top, Marc by Marc Jacobs bag, Shoedazzle heels, necklace made by moi

We are off to bake a birthday cake and celebrate a friend's birthday!  What is everyone up to this weekend?

I couldn't stop laughing while watching this....

Adore this necklace...

How adorable is this necklace I was sporting today?  My bestie gave it to me for my birthday (it is from Anthro and I had been on the hunt for it - she knows me too well!) and I have been trying to work it into my outfits as much as possible.  It is a great summer/fall transition piece and I highly recommend you snap it up if you spot it at your local Anthropologie!

I have some fabby discounts for you to check out too if your shopping fingers are itching to play!  J.Crew extended their 20% off all women's clothing (when you spend $150) and Lulu's is offering 15% off everything with code CEO-SALE!

Mommy Time Outfit Breakdown!

I normally am an over-dresser and I always find it awkward trying to decide what to wear on the days bebe has her play group classes.  All of the other mommies are dressed SUPER casually... sweatpants, jeans, and generally not my standard wardrobe.  I obviously can't wear my go-to dresses since there is rolling around with bebe involved.  Today I went with this look (since it is STILL in the 90's out)!

 Seven Jeans, Tory Burch Shoes, Rebecca Beeson Top

 Stella and Dot Garden Party Earrings

 Tory Burch shoes

 Chanel handbag

I  know it isn't the most exciting of outfits, but I get excited about what a steal it all was!  I got the top at *gasp* Costco for $15 - then saw the same thing at for $40.  I got the pants 70% off a few years back when I was working at a boutique (this is the first time post-bebe they have fit too! Hooray!)  The earrings are Stella and Dot (which you can purchase from my site: - they come in a gorgeous cream shade as well!)  I scored the shoes on a trip to Nordy's a few months back.  I had coveted them after Kristin Cavallari rocked them with a hot pink dress on a red carpet but couldn't find them anywhere in my size.  They had ONE pair, in MY size that had been returned during the half yearly sale - and I had a gift card!  So they were technically free... but if they weren't, they were 60% off!  Finally, the handbag, although Chanel, was at a small discount during my last fabby job pre-bebe.  I love a good discount, don't you?

Speaking of, pop over to White House Black Market and score all jackets at 25% off through this Saturday with code 9382!

Fall Nails

Even though it is averaging around 95 degrees everyday here this week in Los Angeles, I decided to switch over to some fall nail polish.  My new fave?  OPI's Lincoln Park After Dark.  It's the perfect dark basic fall/winter color!  

Love!  We are also trying to re-vamp the little blog and make it cleaner looking!  Please let us know if you have any suggestions or can direct us in the right steps!

Birthday Princess

Our little munchkin turned 2 yesterday!  She shopped, opened gifts, ate cake, and went swimming.  It was a pretty good day for a little princess!

Dressy Shorts

Hi lovies!

Dressy shorts are something I have toyed with on and off for years.  Since it is finally in the lower temps in LA I am thinking about getting my hands on some new black ones!  I put together some potential outfit options!

Running Errands

Brrr it has been downright chilly here in LA the last couple of days!  It has definitely been a nice change from 115 degree weather we were experiencing last week!  I have decided to stop being such a mommy with my clothing and make an effort to get dressed - why let a closet full of perfectly good clothes, shoes and bags go to waste!?  Today, bebe and I were running errands - including a quick stop for a Pumpkin Spice Latte!

Black Mossimo for Target top, black leggings from Saks, Tory Burch sandals

Here is what I wore today.  I got these leggings at Sak's Off Fifth and supposedly they are supposed to make you appear a size smaller.  I don't buy it.  They are really thick and actually made me feel bigger.  I decided I needed a fun long, silver necklace, so I made this one for under $10 myself.

Rebecca Minkoff Morning After Bag

I felt blah in all black, so I brought out my orange Rebecca Minkoff Morning After Bag to add a punch of color.

Birthday Look 2

Hi lovies!

So we have been cooped up at home sick for way too long now.... so we are busy dreaming of birthday looks.  This is my second option since I don't know when I will be getting out to look for my leopard dress with this nasty hack.

I have been eyeing these Steve Madden pumps since I spotted them on the cover of a WWD a few weeks back.  How fun are they?  I also love this Stella and Dot fall necklace!  You can score one for yourself on my Stella and Dot site!  Also, this is my dream birthday where I score a second Love bracelet ;) A girl can dream, right?

Birthday Look

So my birthday is just around the corner, which gives me an excuse to dream up potential outfits.  I put this one together via Polyvore.  I have had a craving for leopard this fall and would love to score a dress like this.  Any ideas where to find one?  I have been searching unsuccessfully!  I also just need to get my hands on a Hermes bracelet and I will be all set!  P.S.  How cute are the Stella and Dot fringe earrings?!  You can pick up a pair at my Stella and Dot site!
