6 Months and Counting....

I had intended on documenting my last year in my thirties but alas life has a way of  moving forward and not making the time on my own as oppose to having free time to actually start the documentation had been my life the last six months which brings me to the present.... NOW, I am making that time 6 months in to the last year of my 30's. Yes, 30's, please, let’s all try to keep it a secret. ;D

These last 6 months has been kind of a whirlwind.... it just came and gone, very much like the last 39 and 1/2 years of my life.  I can't say a lot has happened but I do appreciate each day that passed. 

To somewhat catch you up though, there was a small time business that I had no choice but to stop, my Dad's hospitalization, Holidays, the birth of Maxie's 5 pug pups, trips to some far off and not so far destinations, birthday celebrations, yet another small business venture cause you know you can't just give up and the daily routines of life in general. It may not seem much but to a simple girl like me it is quite a handful. I'm just really thankful for my supportive parents, my loving and understanding fiancĂ©, and our trusty and dependable house help Cathy that I am able to cope with life. I may seem weak and fragile and admittedly I am. I know it’s not an excuse but I do try every single day to be a better person than the day before cause I can only live a day at a time.

As much as I’d like to really document my life I am opting to just living it, selectively sharing the moments, events or what have you with fashion, health and beauty with the rest of you. Thank you for the few of you for sticking around, staying to read and enjoy what I have to say cause sometimes words are not easy for me to say.

Winnings!!! post 6 months overdue

disclaimer: (the content of this post was scheduled to be posted last November but as it is mentioned, life played out and this post was set aside for a new schedule. )

By George the end of November is here and Christmas is just  right around the corner and it didn't even phase me up until recently. I was so hoping to post more this month but unfortunately life has a way of unfolding right before your eyes and all other things, blog included set aside. With that said, i want to end this month with good news cause you know there is already enough bad news written in the local newspaper and televised news. So here is my good news...

I WON yet another giveaway! It feels good to win you know and I want to share the feeling with you. A couple of month ago lovenikita hosted her 1st giveaway to launch her new page Love Nikita.  I've been  a follower of hers for quite awhile and I love her crochet creations, (try saying that 10 times fast, crochet creations, crochet creations, crochet creations..... sorry) her tassel earrings, and other accessories she painstaking crochets with much joy I'm sure. I decided to join in the cause to be honest who doesn't  want free stuff,  and cute accessories and whatnot at that.

So I saw this photo above when I was randomly checking on my Facebook wall and right away went to the her site and did what was necessary to enter and the rest was just all about waiting and couple of weeks passed.

As the common saying says "patience is a virtue" and might I add pays well cause here you go, I was randomly chosen to win awesome products and a few other surprises. 

I  can't thank Nike enough for hosting this giveaway  allowing me to enjoy the Express blouse, dream catcher necklace, two crochet covered chain link bracelets with tassels as well as a pair of tangerine tassel earrings and you know how I love those, right.

So don't be afraid to try your luck cause you just never know, lady luck just may be on your side as she has been with me a couple of times already. 

Well thanks for stopping by and taking the time. Hope you guys are having an awesome week. til next time. 


Ps. I can't seem to find other pictures with me wearing all my winnings, grrrr. and I practically had a photo-shoot just for them. I will keep looking and update later, in the meantime I hope this will do.
