PERCEPTION OF PERFECTION

PERCEPTION OF PERFECTION

via In my absence from the blogging world I have had a real struggle with what I like to call the ‘perception of perfection’ that is attached to it. Of course when posting to social media, most of us post the perfect moments. And why wouldn’t we? Who wants to see me sitting here typing away with a mason jar of sauv blanc while watching Project Runway Junior reruns. But I think I became obsessed. I got away from what the fun…

BACK FROM THE DEAD

BACK FROM THE DEAD

So this is awkward.Hey. It’s been awhile. Where have I been? Well…Sometimes, life happens and you lose your desire to continue things you once loved. Over the past year and a half, my life has turned upside down and where I am sitting at this moment is not a place I ever imagined. Since I was last posting regularly, I have moved three times, changed jobs twice, ended a relationship that was a centerpiece of this blog, broke down, got…

CARRY ON ESSENTIALS

CARRY ON ESSENTIALS

I tend to be a really terrible over-packer. Some may use the term ‘chronic over-packer’. But once that bag is more than likely checked, the carry-on is the most important traveling accessory. One wrong move wit the carry-on and your whole flight can be ruined. Believe it or not, I like to keep my carry-on simple and organized. Just the essentials to avoid digging around for boarding passes or chapstick. Leather zipper tote / MARC BY MARC JACOBS tablet sleeve, / MANGO lip…

VALENTINE’S DAY GIFTS FOR HER

VALENTINE’S DAY GIFTS FOR HER

Valentine’s Day really is a bunch of hub-bub. I would like to say I am above the holiday and G and I don’t care to celebrate. However, I have ovaries and I like to receive a bit of extra love and attention on said day. So sue me. The one thing I don’t believe in is the expectation of some grand gesture. Personally, after last year’s post (here), I have taken a new mentality with this day. I have vowed…

BRUNCH ATTIRE

BRUNCH ATTIRE

G and I are celebrating Valentine’s Day with a brunch on Saturday, rather than dinner on Friday. We are both major brunch lovers so why not right? I love how you can really make you brunch attire into whatever you are in the mood for. This weekend I am looking for something casual but cute and this absolutely fits that bill! I have been dying to wear a chambray shirt open on top of a simple dress. So I am…

Currently Craving….

Spring nails!  via I am a creature of habit. I love certain things and I use them over and over. When it comes to nail color, I tend to always use these colors: Chinchilly Ballet Slippers Lincoln Park After Dark Even though these colors are so perfect, the palette is a little bland, especially when spring is just around the corner. This spring, I am so excited to try some new bright colors. When I need nail inspiration, I search the Essie…

Techie Thursday

Techie Thursday

I am no where close to what you would call a techie. I am sufficient with computers, gadgets, etc. But I did have to google what “a post in html” meant. Not my brightest moment. Regardless of this brain poof (I prefer the word poof to fart), I love almost everything Apple. After I splurged on my first Apple laptop in college, which I am still typing right now, I was hooked. I have had the iPhone, iPad and my…

wednesday wants

via Spring has sprung my friends! Well, not really. It is still absolutely frigid and snowy here in New England. But that has not stopped me from coveting one of the years best trends. Drum roll please….(dundundundundun) printed denim. I seem to be a little late to this. From polka dots to floral, there is a style for everyone. Now since denim is one of my favorite things ever (hence the ole blog name), I am so ready to start adding to my…

Now Playing #1

Now Playing #1

via   I am forever listening to music. Whether it is a bunch of old tunes I have rediscovered or the new ‘hot’ artist everyone is talking about, music is a huge part of my day. I’ll be honest, when I am commuting to and from work, I am listening to sports radio. But if the hosts are talking about basketball or its the day after a bad loss, my iPod is back in play. Most recently I have had…

Manic Monday

Manic Monday

Monday, blerg! Not my favorite day. But today, I have a lot to be excited about. First, I wanted to thank all of my new followers for being here. I have had a bunch of comments and I promise I am not ignoring you, I just haven’t had a second to even breathe. I have read each one and each made me smile. I also wanted to thank everyone who has gone and voted for me on the Simon Mall Style…
