a few maybees...

at Winners....inspired by Defying her fashion shows:)
this juicy couture bag ..wish i'd bought it!! So cute and not ridiculously priced at $99.99!

thought this was cuet but just too low cut.

Loved this one but needed a small as this medium was just a bit too big around the waist and bust area. Would look really nice with black dress pants.

So it's been a while!!!
Our summer was amazing. We had a fantastic holiday in Cuba and would recommend our resort to anyone looking for an affordable, fun, beach holiday. I rocked my new bikinis and was so happy to have bought them instead of the conservative, ridiculous one piece or tankinis sported by most women my age. Only unfortunate incident is the top on one of them broke the second day...lucky though I actually liked the other one more and have since had the broken one fixed at the store I purchased it from. (a shout out to the anon reader who suggested I go to Legs Plus-they are awesome there!!)
Also had a big issue with the camera and only got about 93 pics out of about 300 snapped. The issue with digital cameras is the memory cards can get viruses and the pics aren't always no nice scrap book from this holiday but there will be lots of holidays in the future and I'll be sure to take pics then!
I've been running a lot these days. Completed this 10k with FancyPansy. It was great!! I didn't have the best time but I made it and that counts for a lot in my books!!
Now I am concentrating on reducing my time and finishing my next 10k in less than an hour. I have been working up to running on my own for a full 10, Something about running in a race that makes it easier to get to the end...when i'm running solo I seem to need a bit more of a push and normally get to 7k with no problem but am completely done so I normally just make it home!!
Getting the kids ready for school. My big boy is starting first grade and he is super nervous. I know he will shine bright and do amazingly but as I was at his age, he is quite worried about the whole thing!

makeup makeover

I recently had a day off with nothing to really focus on but myself. I decided that after getting my nails done I was going to get a Sephora...
