Wordy Wednesday: Perspective

Hi friends..it’s Wordy Wednesday again.

How about this for a little perspecitve?

Sad in a way that we’ll never be this young again….but the older we get…the wiser. Right?

Happy Wednesday.


J. Crew…J. Shmu!

Hi Friends,

Disclaimer: I totally got this idea from another blogger but I’m going share it with you as well because it’s just too good not to.

I’ll keep it short and sweet and let the numbers do the talking.

J. Crew Bubble necklace. Super adorable. Mucho expensive. $150.00

Pretty, right? I couldn’t agree more! And it comes in so many pretty colors:

Want the same necklace for 90% off?

I did.

Here she is:




I’m completely aware that my photography skills are horrendous. Promise, I’m working on it.

But you get the gist of it.

What do you think? Looks identical right? I’ve never actually seen the J. Crew one in person so I can’t compare the color but by their online picture, the J. Crew one looks more “neon yellow” and this looks more “sunshine Yellow”.  At least to me.

I do love me some sunshine yellow though! It was so hard to decide which color to go with for the necklace but at these prices, I may go back for another one..or two.

If you’re like me, and you don’t care who makes it, as long as its pretty and affordable, then you have to get in on this! I paid $16 including shipping for this $150 necklace.

I told you I loved bargain shopping elevated to an art form!!

If you want to know where I bought it and how you can easily scoop one up for yourself, just let me know and I’ll be happy to get right back to you with the info!

Happy Bargain Shopping!

Wordy Wednesday: The Cure

So, I’m not one for long poetic quotes or the overload of inspirational sayings that bombard the internet on a daily basis. But every once in a while, a quote or saying or wording will come along that makes me stop and reflect, if only for brief moment.

I think its safe to say that depending on what is going on in our lives, a certain quote can appeal to us more than others. Sometimes it’s the inspiration we seek, the push we were looking for, the reminder we needed.  Sometimes its just fun.

I’m going to use Wednesdays to share with you some words that inspire, motivate or catch my attention. Just once a week…I’m not trying to add to the overload.

What are your favorite quotes???

I couldn’t agree more. Having a problem you can’t solve or just a bad day?

Go for a run and sweat it out. Sit by the sea and take in her majesty.

Or just cry it out.

One is bound to aid in the cure.

Weekend Recap: Soaking up the Sun, Full Moon and Nachos

Hi Blog Friends! How was everyone’s weekend? Is it getting hot where you live? It’s getting hot here…really hot. And rainy. Summer= rainy season in South Florida. How about where you are??

Well I hope to pick up my blogging a little bit, so if you’re out there, holla at your girl!

Here’s a little weekend Recap!

This weekend’s Top 5:

1. Food, Friends and Basketball: Friday night we got together with friends to have some drinks, eat some food and watch the Heat vs. Celtics game. Sadly, the Heat lost and the food was crap…but the beer was cold, the company was good and the Tvs were big so all was ok in the world.

2. Mini Getaway: My Mister and I took a little getaway to the Florida Keys. The weather was cloudy Saturday forcing us (allowing us?) to just hang out inside and soak in the AC. Too bad we realized this AFTER I had drenched my body in sunscreen. #super

Clouds and Wind..not a good combo

Sunday we were able to go out and went fishing…or he fished while I lounged on the boat and tried to soak up the sun.

My ninja getting ready to dive…

Hello little fishies!

I’m thinking about buying this house…

It would ONLY be appropriate to get a boat for the house…this one will do.

Till next time, Paradise.

2. Tuna Nachos: Saturday night, we ventured to a local spot that sells the most amazing Tuna Nachos. You can get there by car or boat! How can a food alone get a spot on the top 5 list? Because they are perfection..that’s why.

How amazeballs does that look?!

4. Full Moon Beach Party: After dinner on Saturday, we headed to the famous Morada Bay Full Moon Beach party. This only happens a few times a year and we were lucky it was going on this weekend. Remember Saturday’s wind that didn’t let us go fishing? Well it worked out beautifully at night as there was a light breeze and a very random mosquito-free night in June.

If you ever get a chance, try to attend one of these Full Moon parties. Bring a blanket like we did and just lay out and listen to the bands playing and watch the performers. Or you can get your drink on and party it up since the music keeps going until about 2 am. Sadly, I don’t have better pictures. My damn iPhone doesn’t work at night it seems.

Party going on…

5. Game of Thrones- The Game of Thrones season 2 finale was on Sunday night! You guys..are you watching this show? Isn’t it so good? The finale didn’t wrap up as many loose ends as I would have liked (it’s like LOST all over again) but I guess that’s what we have season 3 for. Till then, Westeros! I will miss you! Especially you, Robb Stark.

How was your weekend?? Anything super fun?! Did you soak up any sun (or nachos)? It’s so easy to leave a comment! I’d love to hear about it!
