DIY: I’m making this…..

17 Feb


I am in deep preparation for tomorrow's DIY. This looks simple and is! However, I'm currently doing some trial and error so that my creation looks exactly like the one below. Tune in tomorrow to see how mine turns out. Great news this DIY cost me under $10.00 to make.

Marni for H&M: Epic Jewelry

16 Feb


What say you? Is this Collection worth spending a night on the streets for? I'm really considering it again. I know I know I said I wouldn't. However, I can explain. That necklace with the white flowers has fallen in love with my brand new Jason Wu for Target dress.  They want to marry each other. I can't break up the happy couple. They must be united! I guess ya'll know where to find come March 8th!

Couture or Coutrash: The Silk Pajama Pant

14 Feb


Well this is just brillant! This trend will not be everyone's cup of tea, thankfully for me I LOVE tea! I think this look is better captured with a vintage influence. Think 1970's Halston silk pajamas. Wait? Did Halston even make pajamas. No matter, if they made them I will find them!

Downton Abbey Season 2: Episode 6

14 Feb


Episode 6 click here

Best Line said by Dowager Countess: "Don't be defeatist Dear, its very middle class."

Thank you to my lovely reader "M" for pointing out that Episode 6 was 2 hours long. How could I miss this epic episode?! Anna and Mr. Bates wedded. I was almost jumping up and down with joy. I was so excited to see at least one of these character get married. I am so pleased that it was Anna and Mr. Bates.

They were dropping like flies with the Spanish Flu taking over Downton Abbey. Lady Grantham and Carson caught it but the person who took it the hardest was Lavinia. Now, I haven't been a fan of Lavinia's this season. However, I  surely didn't want her to die. I almost teared up as she took her last breath. I think she really was a sweet girl.

O'Brien was caring for Lady Grantham so diligently. I was hoping she would confess the horrific crime she committed against Lady Grantham. I won't reveal what it was in case you haven't seen the Season 1 finale. She seemed really remorseful and I felt a bit sorry for her.

That floozie Jane made her final move on Lord Grantham. I was literally yelling. NO! NO! NO cheating! I'm so glad Lord Grantham made the right choice and refrained. 

Ethel met again with the Bryants. The father was still a bully and even suggested Ethel give up her only child into their care. I am so glad Ethel declined their offer. What's better than a Mother's love. 

Mr. Bates was arrested! He's been charged with his crazy wife's death. Can't wait until Episode 7! I think it might be even more epic than episode 6. Laters……..

Downton Abbey Season 2: Recap Mondays – Episode 6

13 Feb

Episode 6 click here

Best Line said by Mrs. Patmore: “He understands, he knows this is just the sprat to catch the mackerel”

Episode 6 was full of misbehavings. Let’s start off with the creepy Sir Richard Carlisle who asked Anna to spy on Lady Mary. The more this Joker shows up on the screen the more I dislike him. I’m hoping the writers of the show have plans for his demise. Sooner rather than later.

Was anyone else yelling at the screen when Lord Grantham got all kissy face with the new house maid Jane?! I was yelling “don’t you kiss that floozie Lord Grantham”. I told ya we had to watch this chick. I suspect she’ll be trying something even more daring in episode 7. 

And then there was Major Bryant’s Father. What a bully? Yelling at poor Ethel. What proof would she have that your son sired her child? It’s 1920 foo, DNA testing wasn’t even invented yet. I wish someone would have knocked his block off for yelling at Ethel and they way he spoke to his wife. 

Lady Sybil and Branson the Chauffeur finally kissed. I really don’t like this match. I feel like Branson is forcing his feelings onto Lady Sybil. Girl, really think about running off with this Dude. He’s a rebel and doesn’t have much money. If you do run off with him make sure he puts a ring on it.

Thomas was up to his shady tricks again. This “Cat” middle name is shady. He’s always trying to get something for nothing. This time his ventures didn’t pay off as expected.

The big news of the evening is that Matthew can stand and Lavinia is clumsy. We discovered Matthew’s ability to stand when Lavinia lost her balanced while carrying a tea tray. Really Lavinia, you can’t even handle a light tray without taking out half of the Library. C’mon Matthew you can do better. And by “better” I mean Lady Mary!

Until episode 7……Laters!

Jewel Tones & Over-the-Knee Boots

9 Feb

I big red heart jewel tones and over-the-knee boots! These are probably my favorite boots of all time! I had been on the hunt for a pair of flat black leather boots for years. I brought these majestic pieces of leather in December or 2008. They originally cost $800 and were 50% off that and then another 50% off. When it was all said and done I was skipping out of Bloomingdale with my boots in tow. Final price $230! It’s not everyday you get 80% of a insanely HOT pair of boots. I haven’t found another pair of boots to compare them to. It’s safe to say these are timeless and one of a kind!

Aztec-Inspired Wrap Sweater

8 Feb

Loving this sweater! I picked up this gorgeous wrap sweater at Old Navy this past Monday. Its super warm, comfy and its all MINE! For $19.50 it’s a pretty awesome deal. This is one of those sweaters you wear when you’re sitting in a cabin, nestled by the fire with your BOO. Or in my case with Snookums.
