Hope everyone had a great day today! There are so many wonderful things happening in my life right now and I am very excited. Transitioning from a comfortable place is always hard to do, but it's refreshing to know that the product of your growth and faith will provide opportunites for you to want more for yourself and your career. As we get older, we out grow certain things,
people, clothes, cities, etc. I'm elated that I'm growing!!!

He asked if he could use my pics to create art.
His concept. His vision. His talent.

I absolutely love it, and it's sooooo me!!!

Hey guys recently I became a Shop It To Me Trendsetter!

Shop It To Me is the best way to find out if the merchandise you love
to purchase is ever on sale! All I had to do was enter a little info about the designers and brands
I love, and I could even narrow the sale search down to what sizes I'm looking for.
Once they have that info you can recieve Salemail which is a personalized email containing
all the wonderful deals they find online for you! This is great if you are an avid online
shopper or just don't time to find the bargains or discount codes to enter upon checkout,
they find that for you too!

Here are a few "steals" from my Salemail!!

Ray-Ban Summer Wayfarer from Asos.com

Sale: $144.87

::ZENO, The City, & Mii::


Tuesday night I had the pleasure of hosting a viewing party for the season finale of The City,

 Since my birthday was the weekend before (July 10th) it was only fitting that I coupled the viewing party with my birthday celebration. As we gathered in the name of Fashion, Friends, and The City, we said goodbye to The Hills, but were already excited to see what the next season of The City will bring!

::For Your Viewing Pleasure::


::The Gift Bag::

MyZENO sent a care package that included a few Whitney Port's favorite things for 6 of my lovely guests to enjoy!



Pop Chips (never fried. never baked.)
Fresh Soy Face Cream
Spearmint Orbit Gum
Maybelline Great Lash Mascara
Smith's Rosebude Salve
Havaianas Flip Flops

Since I had more guests, I created more gift bags and included a variation of the following:

Smashbox Mini Lipgloss
OPI Mini Pots of Nail Polish
Fragrance Hand Sanitizer
Hand Lotion
Neutrogena Make Up Remover Wipes
More Orbit Gum

I also hand made all of my guests a Mini ::MirrorCheck:: Brooch to match the one I wore that night!

::The Outfit::


::Wearing "remodeled" Thrifted Dress, MirrorCheck Brooch, Bakers Pumps::

This dress had been sitting in my closet waiting for the perfect occasion, and with a hem, and a few stitches later I wore it on Tuesday night. Like I said I made the brooch; it's definitely going to be a wardrobe staple from now on.

Special thank you to SydneePaige the Photographer for the night! She's a doll!!

I had sooo much fun Tuesday watching The City, and I am honored that I was chosen to be one of few in the nation to support the ZENO brand by hosting a viewing party in honor of the show.
