April Resolutions Recap

Doe & Be top, H&M pants, Aldo wedges (last seen here), Ardene necklace,
Charlotte Russe ring, various bracelets & Gucci shades

Look kids!  It's the recap of my April Resolutions (finally).  I have to admit recapping on two months worth of resolutions in one month is pretty impressive.  Wait until I give you my August Resolutions - it'll blow your socks off.  Let's get recappin':

1. I used the Crest White Strips and loved them. They definitely whitened my teeth (so much so that people noticed - even strangers). I would highly recommend them ($32 well spent). I used the second level of the strips (whiten for 30 minutes, everyday, for 14 days) and while sometimes I missed a day, it didn't seem to matter. My teeth did not get more sensitive (I thought they would, and I have sensitive teeth) and they worked.

2. I highlighted my hair and now I'm almost back to needing it done again (which will prompt more highlighting, despite my inner debate).

3. Still haven't done this but have been driving around with it in the back of my car for over two weeks now (Sharon, please don't hate me!).

4. I have decided (after all that) to keep my car for a little bit longer. Dream car, take a back seat.

5. I made the clutch, started the skirt and completed the scarf. I also made a trapeze style top.

While taking these photos the other day I couldn't resist the sweet Canada Geese
that were quacking around.  I had to seize the (Canadian 'eh) moment and snap 'em up.

Sweet, sweet readers:

Thank you so much for your comments on my 'Under Construction' post.  I've never received so many (amazing) annonymous comments and you have truly made my day.  Do you know how nice it is to come on my blog and read that you care?  That you are worried?  That you miss me?  Wow.  I'm blown away and so grateful.  Thanks for your compassionate and sweet words, thanks for leaving a comment, and most of all, thanks for reading and making my day.


Under Construction

Seduction sweater, Dynamite skirt (last seen here), Aldo wedges (last seen here),
Dynamite belt, Joe Fresh necklace, Ardene & F21 bangles

Okay, it's been two weeks since I blogged (unless you count the Covet post I threw up last night).  You're probably wondering where I've been (or maybe you could care less - ha)?  Well, I've been going through some life changes and I'm not quite ready to talk about it yet, but I'm around and alive.  I'm under construction, so to speak. I miss you all terribly and haven't had a stable access to Internet for a while, which definitely affects my blogging.  However, that has changed and I'm getting back into the swing of things.  I have some exciting news coming up and a give-away too!  Stay tuned my lovely readers, I haven't forgotten you, so don't leave me now.

Go girl.

Go boy.

I immediately covetted these lace shorts after seeing them on Veronika's blog.  They're cheap too at $34.99 - go get 'em!

Love {Movie}

 I want to see this sweet movie but it's not playing in my city.  What's a girl to do?!

I have been on the hunt for the perfect striped blazer (after seeing Tiffany's, many moons ago), and this  one seems to fit the bill.  Splurge worthy?

Recent: iPhone Snaps

* A super old sweater (we're talking like seven years here people) that although is far too short in the body to rock with jeans nowadays, tucking into a high-waisted pencil skirt works just fine

* Bellini
* BBQ'ed kabobs
* Apple + Cheese (an often daily snack)
* Caesar salad

* Borrowed this book from a friend and it's surprisingly awesome and interesting.  Different things about 'male mysteries', 'Say this, not that' sections, polls about real guys and neatly outlined chapters with point-form recap at each closing.  I laughed and learned.  Purchase it for yourself (or a friend) or read a great review on it.
* You asked: typical after-workout-outfit.  

* Supermarket sushi:  I said I would never.  I did.  (And it wasn't so bad.)
* Summertime fruit.
* Newest thing:  Apple crisp with plain yoghurt (deee-lish).
* No words required.

March Resolutions Recap

 H&M blazer (last seen here), Stitches top (last seen here), H&M tank, Forever 21 pants (last seen here), Aldo wedges, Le Chateau necklace, Bijoux Terner bangle, Swatch watch, Swarovski bangle, Ardene leather bracelet & Charlotte Russe ring

In March I started to make monthly resolutions, figuring tackling a few small goals per month would be easier to handle than the entire years worth (mind you, my New Years resolutions weren't that hard to abide by...).  And while I've been working on my resolutions each month, maybe one of my resolutions should have been to ensure I give a recap on here... in a timely fashion.  I wouldn't say July is very timely for a March Resolutions Recap but we're going to pretend it is because that's what we do.  Oh, that's not what you do?  Well... read on anyways.

1.  I haven't been wearing as many dangly earrings as I resolved I would, but, am rocking them at least once every two weeks (progress, people, progress).

2.  I'm a regular flosser*.  Woot. 

3.  I celebrated my 27th birthday (surprise, surprise).

4.  Operation long nails hasn't exactly been very successful, but that goes in stages.

   * My Dentist loved this resolution.
