Happy Weekend

Hello all! Well it is the weekend yet again. This week has just flown by for me...I couldn't believe that the last time I posted was 6 days ago. My work life has kept me happily busy, and because I'm happy, I have been losing weight. I'm the type of person that eats when they are unhappy, but now I am getting back to the size I was 2 years ago. The onlydownside is that I have a whole new work wardrobe that is starting to get pretty loose. My skirts just don' nip in far enough at the waist anymore.
I love my 70's inspired ruffled blouse in these pictures. They were the only photos I could get before the batteries ran out in my camera. Will charge and do more!



Skirt and shirt: Ann Taylor; Shoes: Anne KLein

Kids Who Wear the Crowns

I went shopping States side today, which I love to do. Because I was by myself, I only shopped in Watertown, at the SalmonRun mall, Kohl's and Target. I didn't find as many deals as I was expecting, however, I did enjoy the low tax rate. On my $44 dress, I paid just over $1 in taxes. I think that is awesome.
I didn't buy much, but as usually, I made sure I loved what I got. I was so close to buying a Calvin Klein dress today. but found the one below that I liked more. If I hesitate over a piece of clothing, I immediately put it back. When I go shopping, I doing buy anything I don't immediately love when I try it on. I have always found that those purchases have been a waste of money because I don't wear them.


I also bount my first pair of wearable wedges and I am sold. They are so supportive, I want more!






My original intention when shopping was mainly to get 1.5-2" high heeled shoes for work, and possibly some tops and maybe a pair of pants for fall. I ended up being draw to all sorts of skirts and dresses. I did get a pair of shoes, but also got a dress of all things. The season is changing, and I but a I am also looking for the perfect sweater dress right now.

Working Girl

I love going to work where there are lots of friendly/funny people...but then I have to come home to an empty house. Kind of depressing; however! tomorrow is my spa day, I will be relaxing with a massage after work. Saturday I will be buzzing off to the states alone because le boyf has better things to do with his day. But shopping alone is always better anyway, le bf's never give you a straight opinion!
Today I didn't want to wear a skirt, dress pants or heels.



Sweater: winners; tank: Cleo; belt:? jewelry: rings made by myself and dad

This is my first work clothing post. It was a random picture from this morning before work.

sept 14

I think I look kind of mean, I wasn't going for that!
I am now home alone for a week, le parents have gone to North Carolina for a week. My dad is obssessed with driving race cars around Charlotte Motor Speedway (NASCAR track)! I didn't go this year because I have gone for the last 3 years and need a break from NC.

My Wonderland

As promised, here are a couple new photos. The one flaw that I have found in many places I have lived over the past 5 years is a lack of closet space; There never seems to be enough! Luckily, since I am living at home, I get 2 whole double closets! They are pretty jam-packed, but I think they should be the limit on how much clothing I should have...I am going to have to adopt my brothers philosophy of "buy a new item, get rid of an old one."
I also plan on doing some what-I-wore-to-work posts in the near future; I am absolutely obsessed with work clothes. I always have been, and I am currently planning a trip to the States for some dad b-day present shopping and work attire. I am planning buying my dad a charcoal bbq for his b-day...would that be a good gift?



This tank is one of my all time favoutire shirts! It looks so fancy under a sweater of blazer. Tip: if you are looking for classy items or amazing classic pieces, take a look around older women's stores like Cleo or Melanie Lym. They always have great basics.


Next week when I get paid, I am splurging on a massage and pedicure! Any advice on what kind of massage I should get? I haven't had a hot rock one yet.

Who Am I?

I have really been noticing lately that I am knowing fewer and fewer people in the celebrity magazines. Where are all these random young people coming from? Oh God, I just said 'young people'...I feel so old right now....I think it all started with the Jonas Brothers for me; that is when I stopped caring about random young celeb crazes. However, it might also be because I don't watch vampire shows...Is anyone else having this problem -if you can really call that a problem - or is it just me?

What show am I on?

New Camera Fun

Happy Wednesday everyone! I spent most of this afternoon down at a new little coffee shop in Kingston called the Mug & Truffle. It has great coffee, free wifi and a bonus courtyard outback. My bestfriend and I visited it for the first time the other day, and I am smitten. I will definitely start going there over Starbucks...the only downside to it is that it is pretty far away from where I live.
Anyway, we were playing around with my new camera the other day, and I thought I would share some pictures. Have a good one!





I chose the Kodak, not the Nikon :)
