I really love everything about summer time. For some reason the sunshine brings out the very best in me and this summer I'm loving rompers. Prior to the birth of my daughter I weighed 121 pounds and at the time of delivery I weighed 196 pounds, dropped down to 158 and I've been hovering there ever since. I'm not comfortable with my current weight. Don't get me wrong the birth of my daughter helped a sister out in all the right places but I can stand to lose 10-15 pounds which is my goal by the end of the summer. I was at the mall earlier this week and I tried on a couple of rompers. Super cute but my tummy area wasn't allowing me to get the fit I was looking for. Yea I can throw on my $150.00 body magic (money thrown down the drain) but who wants to wiggle and roll on the floor to fit into that damn straight jacket when I can change my eating habits and get on the road to living a healthier life....but if I were my ideal weight I can see myself wearing these cuties around town and when the weather gets a little cool in the evening I can layer it with my old faithful denim jacket and still look super cute.
I've been looking for a really cute mustard peep toe for a while so when I saw this cutie at Aldo a couple of months ago I waited patiently for them to go on sale. I don't believe in spending lots of money at stores like Aldo for two reasons (1) the shoes are man made not genuine leather and (2) by the time you get the shoe home the shoe has already gone on sale. I hate to see my money go down the drain right before my eyes, so when I saw the shoe earlier this week for $44.00 I grabbed it.
This shoe is a little too high for my taste but because I will only wear them with a skirt which I rarely wear they will work out just fine.
Have a blessed Sunday and remember that God wants you to live the very best life you can possibly live. God gave his son and John 10:10 (amplified version) tells us that
The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it [a]overflows).
How refreshing is it to know that God wants the very best for your life and he promises you a life of abundance if you live your life in Jesus Christ.
Today was a perfect California day. It may have been a little too hot for some but after an entire month of June gloom the sunshine was exactly what I needed. My family and I attended a celebrity basketball game that my honey organized. This game has been in the works for several years and today one of his dreams came true. The proceeds from the game benefited the youth activity league, an after school program that cater to the needs of at risk youth here in Los Angeles. Giving back is something that's near and dear to my heart and I don't think we can do enough to help those in need. The basketball game was a huge success and we're looking forward to next year.........moving on.
Just because you're attending a basket ball game doesn't mean you have to pull out your sneakers. Today I decided to step up my game just a little. I paired my boyfriend shorts with a platform bootie for a little extra support and comfort for the many trips to the concession stand, added a white tank threw on a few simple accessories and I was out the door. I love feeling pretty and you should feel pretty too.
