Chic or Cheap?

So I'm really excited to announce we finally picked out our furniture for our bedroom and living room!!! Can't wait for it to be delivered and I can accent everything and put my vision all together!!! I know it's going to be fabulous and I can't wait to show it off...although I must still wait for the delivery to come the only thing that is really left is to get my accent tables and coffee table and still thinking about placing a rug onto of another rug...don't know if that will look chic or cheap? Please let me know what you think of this idea I can use some help!!! :)

I have seen this done in so many different ways and was just actually thinking abut putting a shaggy throw rug down to make it look more like "Beach Cottage" but I haven't thought still to doing this!! I have seen some pics on line but don't know what it will look like I guess until we actually get our living room set together and tables placed where I want them, (I still have to look for them too!!).

My Favorite Things for Spring

Ok so it looks like there is still a chill in the air and some snow still on the ground but that doesn't mean we don't need to start getting out our Spring Clothing. Take out those distressed jeans and put them to good use. They are a hot Spring 2015 feature! Light denim is the way to go, it made it's way peaking through towards the end of last summer snd I think it will be a very hot seller this Spring/Summer as well, if not more! Everywhere I go I see the light distressed denim and love the ones I go from NY&Company i love. They are stretch so whatever your real size in jean's are go down a size they give a little and will stretch through out the day as you are wearing them. They are comfy and could dress them up with heals and a blazer or dress them down with flats or sneakers and a tee shirt. Either way you wear them they will be a hit anywhere you go. 


My next pick I think we can still get away with in Spring is the trench coat. Not only will you make a statement with a trench coat you will be able to rock it out anywhere as well. This elegant piece is a fashionable and comfortable outerwear staple which can be styled in so many different ways this season. You can pull out this item for several seasons with no worries about it going out of style, and as long as you have to wear clothes, and accessories you will have a stylish trench anywhere you go.  Trench coats come in Fabulous Colors too so not only can you wear it to keep you from being cold but it can be used as a statement Piece as well.  Here are Some examples to show you the different colors. I love Yellow for the Spring and Summer it's vibrant but my favorite one is the Pink coat. it's different and i love how the tie goes on the Side. Then you have your traditional color Trench, Tan or beige. That goes with anything so you might wanna see which trench is for you and when you make that choice love what you picked! 


Some of the best items we can find in our local drugstore to get Spring ready are for our feet and lips!  Here are 3 of my favorite things to start off for Spring.



Because of the horrible cold winter we are having and all the medications I am on for my diabetes my feet get really bad in the winter with the cracked heels and I have tried everything under the sun in order to try to fix it.  So one day we were at Bed, Bath & Beyond and saw this foot cream, O'keeffe's For healthy Feet Daily Foot Cream. I told Dan maybe I should try it, I mean i have tried everything to fix this probleme and they have a Hand cream as well, so we got that and the Ped Egg and I said with the 2 of these items I should be silky smooth and sure enough they worked wonders. I love both of these products and reccomand these both to anyone who suffers from dry cracked feet especially to diabetics! 

The other spring item I love is Eos Lip Balm in Sweet Mint. OMG! This is the best one they have (I think anyway). It has that minty smell and smoothes your lips to be very kissable! Of corse i saw it in Bed, Bath & Beyond and got it with the other 2 items and love it!! 

Hope Everyone Has a Great Weekend!!! And as always Happy Shopping!!!

Spring Trends! 2015

I'm so excited to see the new Spring 2015 Trends this year.  Some trends have not left us but some trends are here and added a twist to this year.  I love shopping at certain places for certain things! there are so many new colors and patterns that I never thought I would like and towards the end of last season, i started loving some of them.  I love the website: I I love Jewelry Auctions. I just brought a bracelet for Ava that looks just like my Alex & Ani.


I absolutely LOVE The Anchor and Nautical Look for Summer.  It's so chic and Trendy everyone is wearing it on something. Next Alex & Ani i get will be the anchor! I just had a party my sister who is a consultant for Thirty-One Gifts, and I earned $250.00 in merchandise credit, 2 half priced items, and 2 Hostess Gifts! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Them!!! One of the new items they have is a Canvas Crew Tote, and it's so adorable!!! Very trendy for 2015 Summer, and very chic! I love it because you can change the handle to a rope handle for a more Beachy tote, and it fits so many things, so if I go to my sister's with the kids i can actually put all of their pool stuff in there. Towels extra clothes fr them to change into, extra items I need for Ava, anything! They also have a matching Canvas Crew Coin Purse to latch inside the tote, also comes in many colors as well as the Canvas Crew Tote! I have the matching Mini Zipper Pouch way too cute for summer!! I just got so many things but those 3 items are my Fave!!! 



Can't wait to use my new stuff and I surly cannot wait to open up the windows and et fresh air in the house and allow Spring to set in! Happy Shopping!!

All New For 2015!

Happy New year! It's been a real minute since I have actually had time to sit and blog. So I will be getting you all caught up on what has happened in the last 6 months of our life!

Well, first off we finally brought our home! That's right after living in a townhouse for like 5 years and having Ava we grew out of it and brought a new home! Im in so much more heaven with this it's way bigger than our town house and I'm in LOVE!!! We moved around Thanksgiving time so we didn't have a lot of time for the Holidays, but in the words of Tim Gun: We "Made it work!"

After the move of corse, the holidays came and hit us like a ton of bricks, so we planned that out and had to make sure some of the rooms were done such as the kids rooms and the main family room! We still have a lot to do and paint to pick but I told Dan, One room at a time and it will come along. I'm already sick of the winter and cannot wait to decorate for the spring/summer! I'm into the Nautical Look for some reason. Whether it is wearing the Navy and Anchor or putting it in my own for Summer. I really have grown to the look. So i m looking for Nautical items for the Summer.

After the Holidays comes cleaning up for January. Well last Saturday I had some friends over for a ladies night and had a Wonderful time. Had my sister, Barbara, who is also a Consultant for Thirty-One Gifts! Had a fantastic time getting together and having some food, girl time, and some wine! Great turn out in Sales as well! Total Sales were $820.00 and because they were doing Double hostess month for January I walked away with like $250. in Credit plus 2 hostess Exclusives Plus 2 half priced items!!! Phew talk about having a shopping spree! I only had to put out of pocket $50.00 and that was it! It's a great time to have your friends come together for food, fun and shopping!!!

On my next list I'm planning Ava's 1st. Birthday (Already)!!! I cannot believe my little angel is going to turn 1 already! The year has gone by so fast that i'm in complete aww! Ava has brought me more joy, more love, and more happiness in my life! seeing her and Jayden inter act brings complete joy to my life! I had a rough pregnancy but i wouldn't trade it for anything in the world, she is definitely my little ball of fire!!! Love Jayden and Ava to the moon and Back!!!
