Love me…Love me not… 11/30/11

Hey Beauties!

This is my first “Love me…Love me not” posting, so let me make a proper introduction: Readers, this is Love me…Love me not, Love me…Love me not, these are my readers. Lol…sorry I just couldn’t resist.

Love me…Love me not will be Wednesdays’ discussion about love and relationships. Discussing relationship issues, tips of romance, and expressions of love.

Today I want to talk about the “love template”. We all have a template for the ideal or perfect soul mate buried somewhere in our minds, that which decides which person in that crowded room catches our eye, keeps our attention, and grasps our hearts. I believe that this template is formed from certain standards and hierarchies that we have set for not only ourselves but for those we choose to be with. I have told the story of how I first met my husband and now having found a better understanding of love and my love template, I know that he is the vision of perfection for me. So, what is your love template? Tell me what kind of person will make the ideal or perfect soul mate for you?

Much Love…XOXOXO


P.S. Found the one to fit that love template? Try your love luck with the Love Calculator and see if he/she is right for you…


Deal of the week… Aldo

Hello Beauties…time for another Deal of the Week…

I actually got this week’s deal a week before Thanksgiving on a shopping outing with my husband…yeah I said my husband. He actually goes shopping with me… and doesn’t rush me, I know, I still think I am dreaming sometimes. Well, I found these pretty faux fur boots at Aldo, one of my favorite shoe stores.

These boots were originally priced at $100.00, but you KNOW I did not pay that much. I got them for a steal of $34.99!!! I just love em! But not only did I get these beauties I also got the matching pocketbook!

This faux fur pocketbook was just the perfect added touch to my faux fur shopping affair. It was originally priced at $48.00 and I got it for only $24.99. I checked Aldo’s website and this bag is actually on sale for an even lower price of $20.99! It comes in 2 colors, so you gotta check it out. Don’t miss out ladies!

What do you think?

I gotta say that I have ventured out lately and bought clothes, shoes, and accessories that I would not normally get including these boots and bag, but I am loving the fact that I am going outside of my comfort zone and trying new things.

So…what will you try?

Food for Thought…Passions in Life

Hey beauties! I am back…I hope you had a great Thanksgiving, and an even greater chance to shop and enjoy some of the Black Friday deals. Although, I missed being with my family this year, I surely and thoroughly enjoyed this Black Friday (thanks to my girl T…shout out to you girl!) I really did shop til I dropped and I will post some of my finds later this week to share the deals I found.

Today’s “Food for Thought” is about passion. Those that really know me, know that I have several things (besides love, family and friendship) that I am passionate about; interior design, photography, DIY, and last but not least shopping. I am one of those people who is blessed with many talents, and although sometimes it is a challenge to determine which talent to really focus on, I am glad that I at least have choices. Each of us is blessed with at least one talent, and today I would like for you beauties to share that talent and passion with me. I believe that the starting point to truly and fully living our lives is knowing what gift God has given us to use, so go on…tell it. Let me in on what your passion is,,,

Deal of the Week…

Hey beautiful people!

Its time for… (drumroll please)… DEAL OF THE WEEK!!!!!

This weeks deal comes to you from Old Navy. My son and I were recently shopping during one of the best sales that I believe Old Navy has had in a minute. So, while my 8-year-old son was trying to break into the oversized gumball machine that dispenses bouncy balls, I was digging through the many colorful piles of sweaters. The sale: 75% off all adult sweaters…I mean how much better can it get?

Of the 4 sweaters I purchased, the Shawl-Collar Sweater in burnt orange was my favorite and today’s deal of the week.

The original price for this sweater was $36.94, but after 75% off, and the 10 dollars in super cash I had to apply towards the grand total, this beauty came out to a whopping……… $6.61!! Man, do I love clearance events.

Although the weather has been crazy…cold one day, hot the next, clear skies Monday, tornado warnings Tuesday, I just could not wait to put on my new sweater.

So…What you think? I think it is PERFECT for fall, if the weather would just cooperate, lol.

Only 1 more day til Turkey Day… Have you done your food shopping yet?


Food for Thought…Thankfulness

Hey beautiful people! Its that time again…time for changing leaves, darker colors, cooler weather, and Thanksgiving! Such a wonderful time of year, time to be with loved ones, time to relax and enjoy time away from work, and most important…TIME TO SHOP!!!! Whoo hoo!

Today’s post is about being thankful during this Thanksgiving holiday. What are you thankful for? Post your reply to share what and/or who you are most thankful for…

May this Thanksgiving bring you lots of laughter, warmth, and love shared between you and your loved ones.

Fashion Friday…6 ways to tie a scarf

I just cannot get enough scarves, but…(yes there is a but) for the life of me, I just cannot tie them other than in that same old boring knot that is just so old and played out. I don’t believe I am the only one stuck in the “scarf tieing rut” so today’s Fashion Friday is about scarves and….(drumroll please) HOW TO TIE THEM!!!! I found this guide on Coldwater Creek…. have at it folks! Let me know if it helped you as much as it helped me, and send in pics of you wearing your favorite scarf style.

Hello World!!!

Hey my beautiful people! This is my first post and I am really excited about creating an outlet to open discussions, share information, and just have fun about different topics, events, and information.

I will periodically be posting questions about certain topics to open discussions about how each of you feel towards them, comments about latest news, information or even gossip, and sharing tips and tools that I have found useful (or just fun) to our everyday lives.

This is a new journey for me and I hope you will join me along the way. I look forward to seeing where this new venture will bring me.

Smooches!!! XOXO
