{These heels were made for traveling…}

There was a time, long ago, when I thought that frequent business trips would be an absolute adventure.  Oh the places I would go and the things that I would see.  Pfft! How quickly the shine came off that proverbial apple.  Although there are some definite perks that come out of such frequent trips, living out of a suitcase becomes old pretty fast.  Thankfully though, I’ve developed a routine that makes traveling a heck of a lot easier.  Traveling first class is one of them.  What about you darlings?  Do you have any traveling requirements?

Wishing you a happy Hump Day!

{Tasty Tuesday…}

My darlings, where ever did the month of January go?  My apologies dear ones for not posting since last week.  I feel like it has been nonstop since we’ve entered this new year and by the looks of it, there is no slowing down for this gal.  I have trips scheduled out in each month until the end of Twenty-twelve and somewhere in that schedule I need to make sure that it’s not all work and that there is quite a bit of play.  So to end the month on a cheerful note, and since its Five o’clock somewhere, let us whip up a yummy cocktail and toast to the next eleven months bringing great success and many wonderful adventures.  Cheers love!!!

xoxo

Happy Friday Mon Cheri! 

 As I prepare to take my first of many business trips this year, I started to think about a few essentials that I would need for my travels.  It all begins with the right tools to keep me organized.  Throw into the mix a FABULOUS neutral lipstick and I am good to go.

What were your obsessions this week?

{Weekend bliss…}

Happy Friday my precious darlings!  Have you picked up on the scent of yet another promising weekend?  The weekend is finally upon us and I am feeling completely loopy with glee.  It’s been one of those terribly saturated drama-filled weeks where you just want to exit stage right and keep going without a moments glance back.  I’m definitely ready to drive off into the sunset. 

Wishing you a weekend as amazing as you are… 

Muaaah!

xoxo

Heh!  Now, what’s in YOUR bag?!?!

{Snapshot of My Summer…}

Frozen cocktails were exquisitely flowing this Summer…

Lunch on the Bay was always delightful…

Spent a weekend at the beautiful Loews Resort….

Being at this resort made you actually feel as though you were in Bali or some other such exotic paradise island…

My sister, the girl’s and I had a complete BLAST at Disney…

Had a super fab time on vacation with my Bestie and her two sons…

I answered to the sweet call of the Ocean every chance I could…

I lived to watch my nieces and nephew at play…

My Summer started at the beach and…sigh…ended at the beach.  

I hope, my darlings, your Summer was as tranquil and as delicious as mine.  xoxo

iPad Junky Anonymous

It may be too early in the game to call but I may need some serious intervention after last night’s iPad-thon (yes, my new made up word – Ha!).  Since its delivery yesterday by Mr. FedEx guy, I’ve been working and functioning with very little sleep and I now have under eye bags that can double for Chanel luggage.  With the new pretty in hand, I searched, downloaded, and played for hours last night on this thing until I saw spots flashing before my eyes. 

Bleary-eyed and babbling, I crawled into bed sometime in the wee hours of the morn.  Is this the start of an unhealthy iPad relationship?  Pfft! Perhaps but no one can pry my new ‘precious’ from my fingers.  {Insert crazed look in my eyes} 🙂 ROFL  If you look up glorious gadget girl in the urban dictionary, you’ll probably see my picture. Heh!

What about you my darlings? Are there any gadgets you absolutely cannot do without? And for those of you with an iPad, what apps do you recommend?

Enjoy your day lovies! xoxo
