Just Another Day In Paradise

 (This hat may or may not be hiding a zit?)

Life is good in Arizona.

P.S.Who can name the food item in pic. #1?
P.S.S. The color on my toes  is "I Brake For Manicures" from the O.P.I  Touring America collection.
I totally dig it! No it's not black. Just almost.

Isn't She Lovely


Kate Spade

What are some quick tips for living stylishly?

 "Fashion should be about enthusiasm for what you're wearing. It should be fun. Finding that perfect balance between what is fashionable and what you totally love is the ideal. So often people are either intimidated or bored by fashion. Having a ‘been there, done that’ attitude takes all of the fun out of it. Put fashion in its rightful place and enjoy it."

Amen Miss Kate.
(Sorry I can't remember where I pulled this quote from or else I'd link it to the article I read.)

Take a moment out of your day to view her blog. It's lovely, colorful eye candy. BTW...I want THIS sooooooo bad!

It's Trendy Tuesday...Do You Dare?

I thinkYikes!
Do you DARE?

No thank you. I'll pass. You?

Can it be?
Check out this new colour palate from M.A.C.
Hmmm...Is that a guy or a girl?
I know, lets take a vote.
I say guy! What do you think?
Looking at this picture gives me the shivers. Ick.

And it's Monday. Again.

We all should have one of THESE hanging in our bathrooms.
Happy Monday!
Do your best to make it a great one.

Lucy drew me a picture of Lady Gaga. Isn't it awesome?
However, I think she forgot the arms.;)

Ha Ha

Dear gentlemen of the house,
Enough with the fake scorpion already.
Seriously, are you asking to plan my funeral?

Mrs. Princess Pookie aka Mom

P.S. Hey everyone else. See that hot pink bottle there on the shelf? Its a beyond superiffic product if you're looking for a new hair smoother. Honestly. It's one of the best I have ever used. You can pick yours up at your local Target and/or read more about it HERE.

P.S.S. Gentlemen, while we're on the topic of funerals, I would like the funeral hall to be decorated with pink twinkle lights, feather boas and cardboard cutouts of myself looking super hot. A live band could be a nice touch too.

Baseball Anyone?

Woke up to an empty milk carton.
Strike 1
Had to cut the "crust" aka skin off the apples to get my kids to eat them.
Strike 2
I hate that job!

Found this pretty little lady at my new favorite store. I call her Pearl. Isn't she hideously divine?!
HOME RUN for me...
Strike 3 according to Prince Charming.

You're out!
Got over myself and my snotty "I'm not going to decorate since this home is a temp" attitude and started decorating our 82 ft. entrance hall of fame. Okay, so it's not 82 ft. but it's a LONG wall. I'm just getting started. I  need to make room for Pearl of course! Do you like it?
If you do...
Here's my decorating advice if you are struggling to find your own decorating style:
Grab things that you would NEVER think to put together and just start hanging. You never know what you may come up with. IMPORTANT!! As you begin to hang pics place the nail hole 6 inches lower than where you think it should go. Number one decorating mistake I see~ Wall art hung way tooooo high!
Now run along and go create your own home run.
Happy Wednesday!

P.S. Stay away from matchy matchy. It brings a whole lot more life to the project!

It's Trendy Tuesday...Do You Dare?

Trendy Tuesday is having a code RED closet full of all things crimson. Red. I LOVE the color red. This is one color that can turn any plain Jane into a sexy Suzy. Whether you choose to wear it head-to-toe or just a pop on the lips you'll be sure to turn heads. RED... Do you DARE? I do!

P.S. A red dress paired with those leopard heels featured on my side bar would be REDilicious!

It's FFF (Fabulous Fashion Friday)

Introducing to you...

 "THE" Genie Jumpsuit


"THE" scarf

"THE" Zebra Shoes

So I know the Nords workers get paid to tell their customers how fabulous they look but, yesterday while I was in there at least 6 people stopped me and asked me about my outfit. Shhh! Don't tell. Not a single thing I was wearing was from Nords. Scarf~ Old Navy ($12) Crazy orange jumpsuit thing~Marshall's bargain ($15). Shoes~Target clearance ($10). There you have it Nordstrom workers. It doesn't cost millions to look fabulous!:D

Happy Friday!
Think outside of your fashion shoe box and wear something FABULOUS.

P.S. Originally I was wearing the scarf with the genie jumpsuit.

This is WATT'S up!

A newbie product from benefit. Yipee!

Check it out HERE.
If you wonder where my "natural glow" (ha ha) comes from, it's from Benefit products.
I can't say enough about them. I haven't really gotten into their shadows, blushes, etc. but, I ADORE all their high lighting products. You can't go wrong with this stuff. Seriously. And it lasts forever. Make the investment. Your new dewy look will love you for it!
Get to a Benefit counter today!
Sold at a Sephora or a Macy's near you. Curse Nords for not carrying Benefit. Shame on you!

P.S. I just realized a couple days ago that I have been spelling the color "grey" wrong my whole life. You sure it's not "gray"? Dummy me.

Smell This

Fall is in the air!

These two scents will cause all kinds of ooh's and aah's in your house.
Trust me...I'm super "house smell" picky. You'll like them.
If you don't, the suggestion didn't come from me!;)
P.S. These make perfect gifts.
P.P.S. Prince Charming really digs the Acron & Fig.

It's Prince Charming's Birthday!

Happy Birthday to the Man of my Dreams!
9.13.and years don't matter.
Your blue eyes make my heart race.
Your greying hair is sexy.
Your morning breath comment.
Your dance moves turn me on.
Your "youness" is perfect. Absolutely perfect.
Happy Birthday my Prince Charming.
Mrs. Princess Pookie

It's Trendy Tuesday...Do You Dare?

Pimp Daddy Gold Watches
Do you DARE?

Mine was $20 bucks from Forever 21.
They had a couple to choose from during the Nords Anniversary sale that I seriously contemplated BUT, I just couldn't bring myself to pay that much. Gotta LOVE forever 21. Sure, my watch will likely fall apart tomorrow but, it was fun while it lasted.;)
If I had a gazillion dollars I'd probably buy THIS one. It's super rad!

It's Tuesday...go do something TRENDY!

It's Monday. Make it a HAPPY one!

It's FFF (Fabulous Fashion Friday)

I find it quite hilarious that I'm featuring my new running shorts today. Especially since I've been mocking them in the gym for quite some time now. I'm not a workout shorts kinda girl. BUT...move me to Arizona and they're my new favorite workout staple. (Sorry Lulu Lemon. I still love you too.) And, they come in a rainbow of fruit flavors that bring all sorts of HAPPY to my face.
You should try some. You might like them too. THESE are pretty tempting.


I've been meaning to create THESE with my kids all summer. Determined to accomplish this task this weekend. Back in the day I  made gazillions of these. Will you be my friend?


These are pretty "flippin" awesome.

Happy Friday!
Smile. Shop. And wear fancy shoes this weekend!

P.S. Found a scorpion on my bathroom floor last night. Not kidding. I've officially turned paranoid.

Today I Want...

Today I spent FARRRR too much time surfing
Here's what I came up with.

One of THESE would the perfect touch of quirkiness sitting in the closet of my dreams. I heart it. A lot!

Whoo wouldn't want one of THESE?

Eating would never be boring again if you had THESE.
So cute!

Can't get enough of the ziggy zags aka "chevron" print.

Calling all ballerinas. THIS is full of grace.

Let's go shopping to UO.
Anyone wanna come with?

My Real Life

No I don't buy expensive clothes from places like HERE. No I don't walk around in pretty make up and fancy shoes all day. No I don't have a personal assistant to take my messages and run my errands. That would be lovely though.  I'm just mom who gets pooped on (happened yesterday), fishes binkis out of toilets and finds boogers stuck to the kitchen table.
And let us not leave out, feeds the fish when all other responsible parties forget.
What a glamorous life I lead.

He thinks he is so funny.
Ha. Ha.

Yesterdays outfit.
Do I look good in purple?
Ironically...I hate the color purple.
And my hair...oh dear!

is your local Target getting a make over too?
It's causing me all kinds of confusion and stress. I'm disliking it very much. When I went there yesterday (minus the all purple outfit) I told the checker outer girl that their store was giving me Walmart flashbacks. Not good.
What is happening to my favorite store?
Is it the end of the world and no one's telling  me?
Happy Wednesday!

For My Fitness Friends...FINALLY!

It's Trendy Tuesday...Do You Dare?

Are you looking for the PERFECT scent for fall? Well I found one for you. It's called Hanae Mori No. 1. Not to be mistaken with No. 2, No. 3 or No. 4. I had some Nords reward points burning a hole in my pocket (points I only use on very special things) and all it took was one one little spritz of THIS and I knew I had found my match. I wore it for the first time yesterday and EVERYBODY, yep, EVERYBODY (ok maybe not everybody) asked me what it was. Note: Even better, it's a limited edition!

Did you know? Nords will make you a small sample of any perfume that may tempt you. The least you should do is go get yourself a tiny sampling.  Enjoy!

BTW: Don't be a hater...THIS perfume is pretty yummy too!

Hanae Mori No. 1 perfume really is such a delightful treat for yourself. Go TOTALLY deserve it.

A new scent....Do you DARE?

P.S. If THIS album isn't part of your collection already you MUST pre-order it now. I'm not even a Beatles junky! And, if you happen to be going to Sin City you MUST see THIS show. I "LOVED" it so much I want to see it again. And again. And again.


This I love.
Would you ever think to put pieces like these together?
A plum dress, cognac colored boot, leopard handbag?
Style at its best.
Be inspired.
THIS designer is divine.

It's FFF (Fabulous Fashion Friday)

Well I can't seem to find anything fabulous about this!
 Stupid movers. You should see what happened to our car!

We've been here since Monday. And what a long five days it has been. (That's a story for another life.)
Adjusting to the furnace we now live in. I don't know if you knew but it's REALLY hot in AZ.
Adjusting to all the fourth grade homework.
Adjusting to the new house (rental that is).
Adjusting to new roads.
Adjusting to.....everything!

Welcome home...What a mess!

P.S. Lulu tried THESE on. They are FABULOUS!

And by the way...
If I had $5,998.00 + tax + shipping + "oversized shipping" (of course) I would be buying THIS. Today!
