P.S. Shoes

I also ordered these shoes last night:)

They will be for the pants from Asos that I hope will fit  ::::fingers crossed::::

Old Navy Finds

I hit up West Edmonton Mall this morning to meet up with a friend and her son, run some hubby requested errands and do a bit of shopping

The cargo's were the last in my size on clearance in the colour i liked the best but I'm not sure if they fit right...I was trying them over tights so that may have been the problem and when I get batteries for my camera I'll get photos of me wearing it all...:) 

There were a few more tops I would have like to have picked up but they can wait until next week. I do have a photo, a very bad one of me wearing one I'll be getting .

oh Hey in the black shirtdress:) I forgot I snapped a photo in the dressing room heehee

Much Love & Happy Living!!

Quick Update

I worked today and ended up with another really bad sinus headache:( I left work an hour early and came home, took some meds and was cheered up immensely by my hubby and uber snuggly kitty. 
I had a great blog post planned as I recently got a "Inspiring Blog" award that I was going to pass along but I'll get that done in the next few days.

For now I wanted to share some recent purchases with you.  I belong to this great sales community on Live Journal and have been happily doing my version of thrifting 

I really needed a suit of some sort for work meetings and this one fit the bill and was a great deal. I also loved the print dress and top :) 

Much Love & Happy Living!!

Braces, Suspenders Sexy any way you say it

Ever since my hottie, Captain Jack Harkness was shown on Doctor Who & Torchwood wearing braces (or suspenders) I've been smitten
John Barrowman
And that how can I forget Mal from Firefly & Serenity fame

Local Boy Nathan Fillion
I'm so fascinated by braces and I even like calling them braces over Suspenders.

Arcade Fire

Matt Smith from Doctor Who
Wikipedia has a write-up on them here.  And I even found a blog devoted to them and the how and whys of wearing them.

Interesting fact: In the U.K they are called braces and in the U.K Suspenders are women garter belts.   Well I though it was interesting at least lol

I bought this? IN LOVE with BRACES (Suspenders)

I forgot I ordered this and was very surprised when it showed up in the mail today.  Bear in mind please that I've been home sick all week, no makeup and generally blah in my cozy socks lol

The skirt needs to be nipped in a bit and of course some heels like these from Aldo

and maybe even a crisp white shirt with french cuffs too

But I really love the braces (suspenders)  Now it makes me wish even more I had ordered the flannel trousers with braces from Asos last month.  Now they aren't on the site anymore that I can see.  
OMG I just found the trousers and they are ON SALE too...I may try and order them next week if they are still in stock

I think I may also just buy some Suspenders from Sock Dreams to wear with some skirt...So menswear 

Much Love & Happy Living!!

My 2011 Goals

Every year I have goals that I try to accomplish ...Most of the time I fail but still I persist. 

Here are some that I hope I actually keep:)

1. Find my style: I mish mash all kinds styles and most of the time this doesn't work. This is one of the reasons I usually stick with blacks and grays.   Hopefully this year I'll find "my" style.

2. Be healthy.  I'm not focusing on anything that smacks of Diet or the the word diet in its title.  However I know that do getting older, having high blood pressure and migraines that I can't just not do some things that will be a positive force in making me healthy. So I'll walk to work at least 4 days a week (about 20minutes) and eat less garbage and more whole foods.  I also will make one new dish a month for hubby and myself to try some around the world.

3.  Say I'm sorry less.   I say I'm sorry all the time EVEN when its not my fault. Good thing or bad thing?  Not sure but its been noticed by other people so its gotta be a problem of sorts.

4. Be less fearful: One of the reasons I have this blog and a couple of others is to break of out my shell.  I have few friends in real time and I'm pretty introverted in a crowd of more than 10 people.  My 2011 goal is to be in a room with 20 people and NOT be in the corner.

5. This is a secret goal which I'll share later in the year along with secret goal #6.

What are some of your goals? 

Much Love & Happy Living !!!
