My Life… Photos… New & Vintage Finds…

Smoothie break!

This week will go down in history as one of the top 5 craziest weeks of my life. Yes, I feel a little dramatic even just typing that but it really has been insane. My manuscript was due to my publisher on Monday and admittedly, I’m a few days late in sending it in. Oh the guilt… oh the pressure. Among my other, normal & everyday blogging duties and jobs, including BlogHer, I’m working on three other projects with brands which I cannot reveal just yet. I have another even more colossal project in development which forced me out of my office 3 days this week, and out for one more call time on Friday. Last Saturday we were informed by our plumber that out our sewer pipes were broken on the city line and that apparently, there was a shit river under our house. Luckily, we smelled nothing. On Monday and Tuesday 7 men dug their height out of our front lawn, under the brick walkway, beneath the sidewalk and to the parkway to fix it. Which also meant, we couldn’t use our “facilities” for the entire time they were here. Awesome. LeRoy has some sort of tooth/ear infection AND to top it all off, I got my period. I honestly can’t believe I snuck in a DIY this week too. All in all, besides possibly taking it all out on our landlord on Monday morning, I’ve dealt with it better than I thought I would, given my hormonal imbalances {ahem PMS}.

Yes… TMI – TMI – T.M.I. but I don’t often share too much personal stuff here any more… I am so tired, I cannot even begin to describe it and I wish so so SO badly that I could share my other fun and upcoming projects with you but I can’t… in due time though.

I’ve been a bit absent from Instagram even, however, I have posted a few photos as of late… {& occasionally on my Facebook page}

Swapping out my Aeron office chair for a prettier option.

I swapped out my old Aeron office chair for a prettier option yesterday {stolen from the living room}… but I’ve already gone back. * See my entire office & dressing room here

This fun necklace find @ The Salvation Army today also works well as a Buddha headdress, no?

One of the projects I’m working on included a trip to Salvation Army… and while I was NOT shopping for myself, I did happen to find this fun black and gold necklace for $5

Vintage Hermes bracelet & @PaulSmithDesign sunglasses are my favorite two arrivals today.

New Paul Smith sunglasses from a recent GILT sale…. and, while I have shopped at Hermes for gifts for others, mostly my old boss at the art gallery, this is the first item I’ve bought for myself. It’s a vintage double wrap leather bracelet and it’s my new favorite piece to include on my wrist. I was determined to find a double wrap so that I could ALSO wear it as a necklace. I found it at a Beyond the Rack sale a few weeks ago.

Can't wait to wear the new @lineandDot items @redlightpr sent over! It's so fun being a girl, err, woman

Red Light PR sent over an extremely fun box of goodies including the rose gold necklace I wore here and a few of the items you see hanging in my dressing room from Line and Dot.

Eek! Thank You @koobabags for this new beauty! It's so gorgeous...the rose gold hardware is my favorite part!

Kooba just recently sent me the prettiest bag ever. It’s called “Sabrina” and I love it. See it here. Seen also with Lumete sunglasses c/o Lumete

Impossibly chic! This fashion illustration for the cover of Femina is from 1931...  considered pajamas or loungewear then, but most probably, resort wear, completely modern & wearable today with hints of 70's & bohemian. The solid colors & timelessness th

In doing a little research for my book, I found this fashion illustration from 1931 and was absolutely amazed at how modern it was, with a hint of 70’s. * From 100 Years of Fashion Illustration

My jewelry & accessories are a complete mess at the moment...

My accessories desk is a tragic mess… See the organizational post here {& sadly, w/ my old powershot camera}

Reading & reviewing... @harpersbazaarus & @soniakashuk #magazine #makeup #fashion #beauty

Sent some goodies for an upcoming Sonia Kashuk review.

New favorite dress...  (& messy office)

And just a new favorite dress by Alexia Admor… photobombed by LeRoy, in my messy dressing room.

    That is a lot of accessories, sigh, I want some. And by the way in the organizational post – CUTE screwdriver! There’s a sentence I’d never thought I’d say.

    Sounds like a very busy week, hope your pms goes away fast – evil force.

    Love leroy in a hoody.

    It’s ok to share a littl TMI sometimes. Though your week has been crazy busy, it seems that some awesome things are in the works, and I can’t wait to hear about them! Loved the pictures; my jewelry table is a mess too 🙂

    Love the dress and the purse! I feel your pain on the sewer. The last two rental houses we have been in have had septic tank issues, so gross! Can’t wait to see what you’re working on next. Good luck and remember to breathe 🙂

    Ooh girl, that is quite the pile of things you are dealing with, and yet you still look fabulous! I love little LeRoy in the background, and as a fellow pug owner, I have those cute pug bookends too! (saw the white one sneak into a picture above!)

    And I thought I was a busy bee. Wow. Either way it is amazing how you keep it all together and are able to get your things done. I, however, have an issue with just ‘doing it’ when it comes to my ‘fairly new’ blog. And as you stated about not sharing too much personal life, I agree. Especially after only blogging about that because that is all I have going on. I am becoming tired of it which I assume readers might be too. So my question is, how do you pull yourself away from it? Do you just do it? Or do you slowly come out of it. I am having trouble with the balancing act of it. Because right now it is all personal and I am lacking the DIY, fashion, etc which is what I really want to get into.

    Oh, dear…….hoping Leroy is fine. Get that tooth/ear infection taken care of very, very soon. Thanks for always thinking of us. Leroy is first now, though. We can/will wait.

    Not TMI at all – that’s what sets your blog apart from the millions of other fashion blogs 🙂

    What a hectic week! All in good fun though!

    Look at you go with your BADASS Self! Throwing words around like shit and PMS all in one post! You are my idol. I love posts with TMI, they reassure the fact that you are human!

    Sorry to hear about the poop river under your cozy home, but think, it could be worst… it could be a river of bad fashion trends!

    I get so excited when you tell us a little about your life! We’re all interested, and knowing how you live puts your fashion and beauty choices in to context (if you really need an excuse). The dress is gorgeous on you!
