Sorry I have been away but in-between dealing with 10 days (now) of migraines I am studying... and after that I am avoiding the computer! I will be back, but other things are more important than blogging right now!!!!

Tuesday, May 17, 2016


There are many triggers to my migraines one being the weather... barometric pressure changes are brutal for me and the past week Colorado has been in a cold/rainy weather pattern which is KILLING ME! I have had migraines on and off for the past 10 days and the past 2 days have ben brutal. Yesterday was cold, foggy and rainy.... same as today. And that is an actual description of what it is like inside my head right now. ha!
Even after I take one of my pills and it might help the pain subside.... I am in a fog, droggy and over all feel like I got hit my a bus for at least a day after. And this isn't great timing either... I scheduled my Real Estate exam ONE week from TODAY! I literally couldn't study at all yesterday because looking at the screen and reading yesterday was impossible! I swear, if it aint one thing its another. Ammm I right?
Anyhoo friends, just asking for prayers that I can break out of this cycle so I am get my brain back. I NEED to focus. Badly.
Rain Rain GO away...............

168 Hours

NO, I'm going to talk about that movie where James Franco sawed his arm off but taking 168 hours of school and 60 tests almost made me want to do that. It's not a shocking revelation that I don't like school and never have... I mean new school supplies, lunch, recess and extra curricular activities I love but that about covers it!
But..... As of yesterday I am OFFICIALLY done with Real Estate School! I am so proud of myself, it took me much longer than I wanted but life happens! I mean I really did it! And I even have a certificate to prove it! Sadly, this isn't the end of the line.... Tomorrow I will be spending all of my Saturday (Like 9 sucky hours) in a all day study cram session at the school. And then I need to really study up for the test! I hope to take my first try within the coming 10 days while it is fresh! (Good advice from my friend Rebecca)
Now, No... I am not ready....I'm not very good with tests I just pray I can narrow down everything I need to know and can somehow get that passing grade of 80% real soon!!! Then we can celebrate and contemplate "WHAT NOW"?? lol!

Amanda Styled!!

Today I have styled my friend Amanda whom I have known since....... elementary school? Maybe earlier.... we literally might have been 3 years old when we started dance together!! But either way that is a LONG LONG time! Amanda is a wonderful working Mom who I adore and I wanted to give her something special! I really challenged myself by picking out 75% of the pieces that can be worn multiple ways.... as in to Work, Errands and Date night all with a few tweaks! I did throw in a few special pieces for her to be excited about which are prefect for Date Night!

Here is the breakdown:
**I shopped 4 stores: Evereve, Target, Old Navy and J Crew Factory! Most of the pieces below are currently on sale! yay!
**I have created 6 Boards with 22 complete looks!
**Total for everything you see here is $557 (Note, I did not count the jeans from J crew factory... I am betting she has some smilier but they are $60)
**That equals $25 from Head to Toe per look!!!

Board #1, Focal piece is the Shirt worn 3 ways!
The pants are hard to tell but they are Navy Pixie pants from old Navy and they are ankle length which is the most flattering! This chic top paired with the navy pants and white jean jacket are perfect for work!! Then for Date Night pair this top jazzed up with fun jewels and the jeans or throw on the jacket for a more casual look!
Amanda Spring into Summer #1

Board #2, Easy Dress 6 Ways!
 I really wanted to give Amanda versatile pieces and this dress is the perfect example! This dress paired with the nude booties is perfect for dinner and drinks! Then throw on the tennis shoes with this dress and she can run errands with her kids! Lastly pair this dress with the trendy gladiator sandal for work! All of these looks can be topped off with the jean jacket for just another way to change up this dress!

Board #3, Soft Pants! 4 Ways!
I think that soft pants are a MUST in any wardrobe and I have been including different soft pants in every board I do lately! They are beyond comfy yet totally chic and versatile!
Wear these pants with the stylish black tank, heels and jewels for a night out!
Pair this pants with the sandals and either the black lace top or jean top and you will be comfy and chic at work!
Lastly throw on this cute graphic tee and the tennis shoes and you are ready to spend the day chasing after your boys! (PS- this top will also go great with the sandals)

Here are the Navy Pixie Pants again and pair them with either top and the booties for a easy but still stylish look for work! And the jewels elevate a plain tee perfectly!
Amanda Spring into Summer #4

Board #5, Saturdays with the kids! 4 Ways!
This is easy, throw on either of these tops with skinny jeans and these sandals for a day of errands. You can also pair the jacket with either for 2 additional looks!

Boards #6, Date Night! 3 Looks
Off the shoulder tops are all the rage right now and I just LOVE this one, it is going to look so awesome on Amanda paired with the skinny jeans! And literally those nude booties go with everything! The coral top will look so chic for a more casual date night and then the jewels will elevate it! Now, I know what your thinking.... The "Texas Tuxedo"???? YES! I love jean on jean and the key is to make sure they are different washes! This jean top paired with the sparkly jewels and the booties it going to be so cute! I just love how versatile all the pieces are!
