Coffee Talk: Wish I'd Known...

When I first started my position with my current employer 3 years ago, I mainly kept to myself. I stayed in my nice sized cubicle and barely left it. Gradually people started coming around and introducing themselves, asking to go out to lunch, etc...

One person in particular was a very different, outgoing individual, who seemed pretty persistent in getting me to open up to her. Eventually it worked and this person and I were going on shopping trips, she'd come to my daughter's events...we were not only co-workers; but friends as well. So I thought...

Well about a few months back, this 'friend' was laid off of work. I felt so bad; but I knew she would bounce back because she was really intelligent and a go-getter. However, as I would call her to check up on her...what friends do...she never had the time to talk, nor did she have the time to do anything else. Then...the communication stopped between us.

I guess our so called friendship was an office friendship only. I wish I'd known that. To this day I'm not sure how she's doing. I could call her but why?? Seems like she proved to me that she truly wasn't a 'friend'.

I wish people would be real upfront; like I am. I'm far from fake but I guess that's part of life....right?

Now for my outfit of the day; casual Fridays:
What I'm Wearing: Old Navy shirt dress (tucked in); NY&Co pant & circle necklace; Forever21 cross necklace; chain necklace my creation; Bakers shoes; of course Macy's bag

I'm Back!!

Well I'm back from my wonderful New York trip. It was the 1st time my daughter and I had ever traveled there. The city was so alive and exciting....a little polluted....but pollution didn't stop us from having a great time!

We tried to see and go to as many places as possible, considering we were only going to be there for a few days. Our first stop was Madame Tussauds. This place was amazing! After that...it was just us 2 traveling all over...

Now ...please be forwarned...there were over 300 photos taken. I've only added some...but that some may be a lot to you guys.

Just some of our favs from Madame Tussauds:
 
 
 
 
What I'm Wearing: H&M maxi dress, American Apparel bodysuit, NY&Co Pocketbook, necklace??
What my daughter is wearing: JCPenneys romper, Zara boots, NY&Co cardi

On Friday night we went to this wonderful restaurant called Uncle Jack's Steakhouse. When I tell you the food was the best...it was just that and more. A little on the pricey side, but it was soooooo worth it!

Calgon...Take me Away...

So far it's been a very long week and tomorrow is only Thursday. Maybe I feel this way because I just can't wait until my trip next week. *sigh*

Maybe it's because of the heat...ooooh I don't know...

My outfit has been worn before; I really didn't feel like looking for anything to wear, nor did I even feel like thinking about it. Geesh...it sounds as if I'm in a really bad mood huh? I'm really not, just can't wait until the weekend gets here.

Dress: NY&CO
Shoes: Charlotte Russe
Necklace: WalMart
Watch: Fossil

Links, Links, Links...

The first thing I do when I get on the Internet is...not check my email, or my Facebook, and shame to say...not even my blog; I check these sites (below):

Vogue Italia: I'm hooked. I first found it as a link on budgetnista.org some time ago and have been checking it out like almost everyday. My favorite sections are the Vogue Black and Vogue Curvy. Pretty cool site!

NYC Fashion: Love it! It's a blog showing the random fashions of New Yorkers.

Overheard in New York: Very funny site where people actually submit quotes; something they overheard on the streets or where ever. I got this little site from Betz over on Everything NYC; her new blog. Got to read it!

Swagger 360: All about New York street swag. Another cool site.

It may seem like I'm totally obsessed with New York right?? Well not really. It's just that...as I'm preparing for my trip there in the next couple of weeks...I've been finding all of this 'New York' stuff online. And, lovin' it.

These are some of my favs that I love to read first before doing anything else on the Internet; and wanted to share them with you! Take care! ~Corie

Tank: Target
Cropped Pants: NY&Co
Shoes: Bakers
