DOTD: Don’t Poke the Bear… oh & a review

Hola Divas…
Okay… usually when I say that… I mean… get the hellz away from me before I rip your head off. But today that title is for dear old hubby… he is in a mood. He can’t seem to stop being soooo grumpy. I have just decided that I will leave him alone tonight and focus on my own happiness. Today was a pretty good day and I’m in a pretty good mood. And today I wore one of my favorite colors… Coral is AMAZING!!!

So I have to say I received an email from Penningtons and they wanted to send me a fun surprise from their new lookbook. And I didn’t know what to expect them to send… but WHOA!!!! What are they chances I would get a CORAL Trench Coat?! I don’t think I have been this excited to wear anything in a long time. So I of course, had to wear it the same week I received it in the mail… hehe!!! It’s $130 and I don’t own a Trench… but I have to say that it is totally 1000% worth the cost. I can’t wait to wear it in the sunlight (but of course I get home too late to take day pictures). I love the way it hangs… and I the color is bright and AMAZING… and the fit is perfection. Okay so this is not a review as it is a reason for you to buy one… seriously… if you want we can even wear them on the same day like TWINZIES!!! Okay… maybe that is a bit much (but it we could do a coral trench blogger challenge… oooh the possibilities)…

Anyway… I’m going to hit the sack before hubby gets any angrier… and before you ask… yes… I will kiss him goodnight regardless of his stinky mood… cause I’m just that type of wife… lol… Ever have a day when your significant other was angry and you couldn’t seem to fix it? Do you have any advice? What would you do? Hasta la proxima ~besitos~


What I Wore While He Was Mr. Grumpy McGrumpyPants:
Coral tank/Multi-Shoes: Target
TieDye Top: Target (Pure Energy)
Skirt: Forever21+
Ring: Dots
Necklace: Burlington Coat Factory
Watch: Charming Charlie
Earrings: beauty supply
AWESOME Coral Trench Coat: Penningtons (gifted)

DOTD: Longest Day Ever… no seriously

I got off work at 10pm… yes… you read that correctly… I am learning how to do the job my previous boss (Pecana) was doing. I love all the time she has taken to train me even though she doesn’t work there full time. I have to admit that if you had told me last year that I would be doing much of her job… I would have called you a liar… but wonders never cease.

So needless to say… I got to work at 8:45am and left at 9:59pm… color me exhausted. However, I love the outfit I was wearing today and since I haven’t blogged an outfit in what feels like months, I wanted to post this look before I passed out asleep.

I am soooo behind on blogging due to work & just life in general… but know that this weekend I plan on catching up with all of your blogs… scouts honor. I hope you like this outfit… Have you ever worked a day as long as I did today? (who am I kidding… this isn’t even the longest day I’ve ever worked… lol). Is there something you would like to see on the blog in coming days?

P.S. Hubby is doing much better. I know I never gave you all an update but he is feeling much better. Some days are better than others… but end result is that if he eats healthy… he will be fine **YAY!!!**


What I Wore Until Practically Midnight:
Teal Tank: Target
Multi Top: Target (Pure Energy)
Skirt: ASOS Curve
Shoes/Watches: ShoeDazzle
Necklace: Target

I’m blind… okay… that’s an overstatement… but I am near-sighted. And I didn’t realize this until I kept missing exits because I didn’t see the sign until I was right upon the ramp. I went to get glasses and no matter how hard I tried I couldn’t bring myself to buy black glasses. So when I came upon these red glasses you see below… I fell in love… but now they are not as strong as they should be, so glasses shopping I go… Enter perfect timing of contacting me about trying out their site.
I have to admit, that at first I was a little skeptical about this website because I thought I need to be able to try on eyeglasses before I buy. But they have that handled as well… on they have a virtual mirror where you can upload a picture of yourself (already taken or via webcam) and use that to try on glasses on your face. I have to admit that is where I had some trouble. Because after trying on set after set… it was hard to choose only a few…
So this is where you… my wonderful readers are needed… below… pick your favorite set of eyeglasses frames. I have to admit that my favorite is the first set. Because I think I would look AMAZING in purple frames… but I don’t want to taint the voting pool…
Are you in the market for a new pair of glasses? Then you should check out website and try out some glasses online. I know you will like what you see and then you can follow them on Facebook & Twitter. Another reason to love GlassesUSA, besides their high quality frames and lenses, is that they offer a 110% lowest price guarantee and a 100% satisfaction guarantee. Oh, they also have a generous refer-a-friend program which is pretty amazing because I’m sure there are at least two or three people you know that wear glasses or needs a new pair of sunglasses.
By the way, GlassesUSA is making it even easier to glasses online with a special offer:
  • Take 20% off your entire order iSee Eyewear and get FREE US shipping with the code: ISEE20FS
  • Take 50% off STOREWIDE (prescription eyeglasses). Today ONLY. Code: PRESIDENT

Lo Quiero Ahora: Sigma Beauty Spa Solutions Kit

I have eczema... it sucks because it means on some days my face is my canvas... on other days... it means I wish I could rip my skin off and hide it from the world. I have been telling myself that I need something like the Clarisonic tool... but let's be honest here... I'm a mother of 3 children and a husband who is trying to rebuild his business after the recession so I can't afford a $200 face cleansing tool... this is why I love being an affiliate to Sigma. They offer great products for a price that "everyday people" can afford. I don't make much and what I do earn I can't see me taking $200 dollars of that for my own vanity.

Here is where Sigma comes in (YES.. it is the same place I buy my makeup brushes). They have a tool that is just as good as the Clarisonic tool... but at a fraction of the cost. How much do you ask? $59!!!! Yes you read that correctly... its like 1/3 of the price of the fancy smancy brand name product... and I'm sorry... but I am not all that excited about paying for the "name brand". So if you're like me and have been coveting a facial cleaning tool that has all the bells and whistles but won't break your bank account then do like I will did and buy the Sigma Beauty Spa Solution Kit for $59

If you do decide to purchase... let me know in the comments. If you own one already... how do you like it?

DOTN: So Late, It’s Ridiculous

So this weekend I was invited to my coworkers sister’s birthday… Which coworker? Well work-wifey, of course!!! I worked Saturday morning and wasn’t sure if I would have the energy to attend, but I have to admit… I have a blast. There are some fuzzy points that I don’t recall, I remember getting into an argument with hubby about something from our past… but other than that… we had a blast. Even hubby is now madly in love with my work wife. And he was feeling a bit better so I think it was a necessary night out. 

I have to be honest that I truly want to blog more, but lately I am working heavily on getting trained and most days what I’m wearing is not at all blog worthy. I know you want to see my not so fancy outfits but lately my outfits are like plain… ridiculous. And by ridiculous… I mean, boring.

I don’t want you to think that I just drop into my blog… post pics and disappear for another week or two. So I wanted to tell you something interesting that happened to me this week. The other night, I came home and this day was already not going according to plan because I had walked out the door earlier that day without my debit card. So I had driven home on what was minimal gas (praying the whole way that I did actually make it home). I pulled up in front of my house and called upstairs to hubby to bring down my debit card. As I waited for him, my car just shuts off. LMAO… my car literally ran out of gas sitting in front of my home. Hubby ran to get me some gas and it allowed me just enough to drive to a local gas station. Afterward, I went to dinner with the bestie that is going through chemo (again). This time she didn’t retain her hair and I can tell she hasn’t gotten comfortable with it quite yet (but that is a blog post for another day). So I give the waitress my card and I wait for her to return, but she tells me I have to come to the register. Well, imagine my surprise when a $29.10 meal was charged $290.10 on my card… most expensive tacos EVER!!! LMAO!!! So they gave me the difference in cash and my bestie couldn’t stop laughing. I have to admit… it was almost worth it to see her laugh like that. Then on the way of the parking lot, I backed into a brick wall. Which cracked her up even more. She said I had had my 3 things go wrong, so I was done… but it was quite a ridiculous night. But it was nice to not take myself so seriously… if that makes sense. So how are you? Have you had a day recently where it seems like nothing is going right? Do you let it get to you, or do you laugh to keep from crying? Below find what I wore to Silver’s (codename) birthday party… I took a picture of her and added it for good measure because I wore the ring she is wearing in the picture, but it was her birthday… and when she said she liked the ring… I gave it her… well… Hasta la proxima (until next time) ~besitos~

What I Wore To Celebrate Silver’s Birthday:
Black/White Skirt: Sizes To Fit
Lace Trim Black Cami: Newport News
Black Top: Target (Pure Energy)
Blazer: Mom’s closet (QVC)
Necklace/Ring: Charming Charlie
Shoes: Steve Madden
Tights: Silkies
Earrings: beauty supply



Isn’t she ADORABLE?!!!

DOTD: Corally Acceptable

Hola Divas…
Last night I was in the ER until 1am (hubby was is very sick and I was very worried last night). I am exhausted and can’t imagine moving another muscle. But today I mentioned on twitter that I was soooo excited about this outfit (I have to admit if I hadn’t planned this outfit weeks ago I wouldn't have had a clue what to wear this morning) and when it came together I was even more excited about it. The only thing I wish is that I wasn’t so exhausted while wearing it… because I think it takes a little bit away from the outfit.

Anyway… something inspired me to put this outfit together. I can’t tell you what because I’m on Pinterest (add me if you’re on there as well… just click the previous link to get to my page) so much lately that I don’t know if it was there or somewhere else that made me want to wear leopard and coral together. If you recently did this on your blog… it may have been you who inspired me… my mind is a load of mush lately. I’m working so hard and I just don’t know when I'm coming or going anymore.

I’m reading blogs… I promise I am… I may not comment but I am reading and seeing your outfits… I just don’t always have time to comment lately… but I do try to read blogs on breaks or when  hubby is driving or we are sitting somewhere waiting. Just imagine that on each post I’m agreeing with your point of view and telling you how fabulous you look… because I would support you if I just had… ummm… let’s say 6 more hours in a day.

Anyway… today I lost my part time job (because I missed last night and didn’t call anyone… for the reason why… see above my first sentence) but I’m not upset… now that I am full time at my day job, I am more busy than anticipated and can’t find the time or energy to clean banks at night. I believe wholeheartedly that God will provide that money to me in another way. I have faith in that. Anyway… thanks for stopping by… I miss you when I can’t blog and I hope that soon my workload will lessen and I can return to you fully. Hasta la proxima ~besitos~

Dress: Norma Kamali (Wal-mart)
Blazer: Silhouettes
3-tone Stiletto: Target (Steve Madden replica)
