Love Life.....

Sorry I haven't posted in a couple of weeks, it has been a mixture of busyness with the kids, lack of motivation, and some sorrow in our life. Last week we had some great friends, and people, loose their 14 month old daughter. It has put such a dagger in my heart for them. Being a mother myself, I have such sympathy for them and that is truly every parent's worst nightmere come true. Thier names are Ricky and Louisa, and there daughter's name was Hailey. Please pray for their hearts to be mended, comforted and restored with peace, hope and joy as they continue on with life with out their baby girl.

How fast things can change in our lives, huh? While I love material things like shopping for a great pair of boots, and decorating my house, a nice car etc. this has just been such an in-your- face reminder of how preciuos life is.

We really can't take anything with us when it is our time to go, and while you should strive for more and go for those things you want, the people that we love and the memories we create with them is really what life is about!

Think you're having a bad day? Try picturing your life with out someone you love there. Don't sweat the small stuff, enjoy the important stuff, and let go of the stuff that really doesn't matter!

With that being said, have a great weekend.....with someone you love being in your LIFE.

Some down time.....

Part of keeping a healthy, radiant, and 'kept' appearance is giving ourselves the proper rest and relaxation that our bodies NEED! It's amazing what a couple days off, and I mean really off, will do for your mood, energy and your appearance. We just got back from a beautiful resort here in Gamboa, Panama and while we only stayed for a quick trip, it was soooo NEEDED!! Give yourself time off will do your body & mind some good!

Here are a couple of quick picks of the beauty that surrounded us right out side our hotel room....

My three Blessings just chillin' in bed. My son is always making either a serious face or a funny face for pictures...drives me crazy, but what are you gonna do! Love the little mi familia!

Check it: Outerwear and Boots with victoriassecret are all 20% off through Monday...worth checking out!

Tengan un buen fin de semana!

Fall Staples.

Thought that I would share my top 5 'go-to' picks to work as fabulous staples in your wardrobe this Fall. You can continuously mix and match these with so much to constantly have a different look each time you wear them......making all of these worth every penny you spend on them.

A Blazer is such a great piece to add a little extra class to your outfit and it just works in tying everything together with your look.

A nice fitted dark pair of Skinny Jeans. These really go with so much.... blazers, blouses, sweaters, knee high boots, heels....need I say more?

A great Skirt. Even tough it's getting cooler, it doesn't mean that we can't still show some leg. Show off some of those tights and boots this season with some cute skirts.

A nice clean White Button Up. I love this look because it gives you a chance to show off some bolder jewelry, and play up your make-up when going with such a clean and simple look.

A pair of black Leggins. These can give you so many looks, depending what you pair them with; thigh highs, blazers, heels, sweaters, belts, etc. Not to mention that they are actually pretty comfortable.
