Coffee Talk: Defining Beauty

Beauty (referenced from Dictionary.com): "the quality present in a thing or person that gives intense pleasure or deep satisfaction to the mind, whether arising from sensory manifestations, a meaningful design or pattern, or something else." 


So how do we (society) define it?

First I'd like to thank those who did participate in my very first Link-up. I really appreciate it and loved your outfits! I hope to get even more participating so that I can check out their blogs/outfits as well.

Event: Sassy City Chicks

Last week I had the opportunity to attend the Sassy City Chicks Fashion Bash Sample Show! This was all thanks to Eboni from The Fashionista Next Door; I won the ticket along with a free sample tote.

I brought my co-worker with me for this event. Neither of us have ever attended a sample show/event; so we didn't know what to expect.

Coffee Talk: Misused Idioms

I promise that I won't use all of my Thursday Thoughts as my venting day for language and/or correct grammar. As you recall, last Thursday I had written a post on mispronounced words. As I was writing this post, I was also thinking about misused idioms. I figured that I would save them for this week's post.

In the future I will discuss other issues/thoughts...

But today, here it goes...

Daughter is a Finalist!

Remember when I asked if you all would so kindly vote for my daughter to be in the 2013 Cinderella's Closet catalog? Well let me just say a big THANKS!

With your votes, she made it to the next level. Now we need more votes to actually get her in the catalog. Cinderella's Closet just couldn't decide on which girls to choose. So we need to help them :)

Please go to this link and click vote.
Just a reminder she's Asiah G.



Thanks!

Trendy Tuesday

Welcome to my new weekly blog post. Trendy Tuesday!
I've been on other blogs where they post link-ups, and I wanted to get in on the fun.
So every Tuesday I will host the Trendy Tuesday. All you have to do is link up your trendy outfit of the day by clicking the "Click Here to Enter" link and be sure to add your blog name and that's it! Now, you may have to do some cropping of your picture to fit the 80px size thumbnail. But that shouldn't be too difficult; I'm sure many of you have linked up before on other blogs.

Here's my outfit for the day...

Florals...my shoes that is.

I tried to uplift my gray outfit...I think I did okay.

All you have to do is link up your trendy outfit of the day by clicking the "Click Here to Enter" link and be sure to add your blog name. You may have to do some cropping of your picture to fit the 80px size thumbnail. But that shouldn't be too difficult.

Coffee Talk: Mispronounced Words

Okay so after some thought, I've decided to narrow down what I want to write about on a weekly basis.

I will no longer have the Video Pick Monday's; by now I'm sure you've noticed that my Typography Tuesday's are gone; I will keep my Feature Friday's, but I will also add on Trendy Tuesdays (link up) and Thursday Thoughts.

What is Thursday Thoughts? It's me expressing / venting my take on certain issues. It could be anything -- but I'm sure I will have enough material to keep this going.

So here is my first Thursday Thoughts post.

Jumpsuit and Heels

Feature Friday: My CoWorker

Meet Lori...


Lori is one of my good friends and my coworker. She doesn't have a blog...yet, but I just wanted to feature her because she's awesome! She's fun...a great listener...and the perfect friend to have when you just want to vent. Let me tell you, I've vented to her way too many times.

Lori is also like the queen B in thrifting. Every time I compliment her on an outfit she's wearing, or an article of clothing she has on, she'll tell me that she bought at the thrift store. And if she isn't buying something at the thrift store, she's getting something from a consignment shop.

The outfit above wasn't all thrift. If I remember, I went with her to Burlington Coat Factory; where she purchased the top. I believe her pants & shoes are from a thrift store. The pants are Bebe and really detailed and cute. The shoe is just a really cute, basic wedge.


Aren't they cute?

I wish I had more pictures but I don't.

Hopefully she will create a blog so that she can share her thrifting adventures. She's really good at thrift shopping.

Until tomorrow...
