Midweek Inspo: Grey Skies on a Sunny Day

With the change of the season my wardrobe lately has consisted of monochrome looks, mostly ox blood red, black, and winter white. In my head I've been playing with the color grey and not just any color grey, that heather, cloudy day grey!

Vogueffirmation: Thankful

Yesterday as I moved about through my house I found myself physically tired. I looked around my living room and kitchen as doll ran about and mentally switched hats as I exhaled and placed on my “molly the maid/ mom” hat. 

I ran down my moves in my head, dinner, wash dishes, number session with doll, and I just stopped in the middle of the kitchen as I felt stress start to pour over me and started reciting in my head: I am thankful for my limbs, my eyes to see, a roof over my head… And I started working in the kitchen and keep reciting what I was thankful for and before I knew it dinner was made, kitchen was clean and I could finally sit down and spend some time with doll.

Just that little exercise made the stress melt away, I felt recharged and most of all thankful! The next time you start to feeling overwhelmed instead of complaining just start reciting in your head “I am thankful for….”

Vogue Radar: Discount those trends

Every session there is a new trend born and it may be hard to keep up let alone want to spend your hard working money on pieces that will be "out of trend" next session. 
And of course there are stores that cater to the session trends for a fraction of the cost, but what i've discorved this session is these new flash sites. I have gotten my hands on some great peaces at a faction of the price from these sites, keeping me on trend without breaking the bank.

Vogueffirmation: Tomorrows another day

Yesterday we fell back and gained a wonderful hour, but in doing so it feels like the day just flew by! 

Today was a beautiful day yet I feel like I haven't had enough time to do all that I love today and then I realized tomorrows another day, another day to dream and create.

So don't worry if today flew by for you as well, tomorrow is a fresh new start!

Chic Halloweenscream

Images from Pinterest
This time of the year is my favorite time of the year! I adore Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas, it always feels that the one time of the year where everything is at peace. 

Around Halloween I go out and buy loads of candy for trick-a-treater, decorate the house and watch all my "semi" scary movies, because I am not a gory movie lover! The same goes for my costumes! 

I am a girly girl 24/7 so of course my costume has to be the same way, so this year while trolling the internet I found some editorials that I thought would be great inspiration for costumes to replicate, yet still sexy, chic and fashionable!

Vogueffirmation: Guidance

Professionally I am a analyst, I analyze finances and give “guidance” on how to process according to the data/trends of prior executions. I guide directors through the inner workings of the finances to spend accordantly. In life I have been guided. 

Guidance defined by Webster as: “help or advice that tells you what to do : the act or process of guiding someone or something: the process of controlling the flight of something (such as a missile)”
Because I am a professional analyst I analyze my life, as they would say “you are your own worst critic” and this is true. In the different aspects of my life I am happy. I love being a wife and mom, but professionally I am unfulfilled.

What’s In a Rose?

If you follow me on Instagram you would notice that every other Friday I am posting a beautiful boutique of flowers, always roses on my Instagram page. I have a genuine love for flowers, it stems from my mom and growing up and hearing her always say how much she loves flowers and purchase them when she had free money. 

I never understood it because as I kid I would always say “well there going to die, what’s the point”. Now as an adult me or my husband buys flowers on a regular bases, it’s like a permanent décor in my house, when they die they get replaced in a few days! Well a company called The Bouqs reached out to me a month back to try out there flowers. They did not pay me for this review; they merely provided a code to get free flowers in exchange for my feedback.
