Blue lace and white pants.

Well, everyone’s been talking about their white pants.Their white pants, got their white pants on.

OK, so this is actually the only pair of white pants I own, weird I know. I love the way white pants look. However, with a 4yr old, they are a dirt and dirty hands magnet. For instance he wiped his Doritos laden hands on my pants later in the day. Yup. Nice. And since I too am also a klutz it is a reason why I never wear white pants. I have white skirts, and i fear for them every time I wear them. #momlife That is just how it is I guess. Right?

So what made me bring them back out? Well, since my little is in school now I figured why not?! SO I wore these cute Target white cropped skinnies with my Express shirt that I have had for ages just always wear it tucked in with a maxi or or midi skirt. Like in this post here . So yup. And pulled out my old DOONEY  . But alas, his school day was cut short as he was not himself. Sometimes meltdowns happen and so it really takes it out of the kid. But, this turned out to be later he is sick AGAIN. There were several littles not in class for being sick. Got to love that they share Everything. Right? NO….somethings they SHOULD not share. Germs..ugh. Oh well. And so he got home and I made him some food for a snack and my pants became victim of little.

That is OK, I am used to it and that my friends is why there is Spray n’ wash.

OOTD bloggerSO this was another outfit I was going to shoot elsewhere and ended up doing it at home because of reasons above. We have to make do. But it still worked out.

Sam and I made it work. If you don’t know who SAM is read this post here . We got it done.

Things were alright. Except the lack of sleep last night do to new big boy bed and coughing, sneezing, snotty nose, and grumpy child.

Poor kid and poor mama.

What can you do, I just let him sleep in the bed after the 4th time of getting into bed with us after hearing how he was breathing.

Is that bad?

I hate you, I love you. I hate that I love you, your facial animations make me want to barf some…..OK, so this is supposed to be a post for a Techy Thursday(I’m bringing it back) but then it isn’t, because I wanted to do a makeup tutorial of some makeup that really NO one would wear today because yeah it is from a video game. And a little rant about Mass Effect Andromeda. Which if you have anyone that plays video games you may have heard some rants. Mostly about animations being a bit first gen  and glitches all over the place. In my case I had an NPC(non player character) walk though a wall and disappear thus causing me to restart. UGH. SO, what is today’s post about? Well, I wanted to share the makeup from that game, One of the looks actually. When my hubby started his game we both went BLEH! WHAT? WHat is that? EWWW. Who would…why? Not to say that people wouldn’t like that particular eye look. We are maybe just being picky.

Looks like her head is trying to fall off..

Seriously BIOWARE, the makeup options future or not were subpar.There is not a whole lot of hair options as far as style and as far as faces. I really love Bioware games, a lot of women do. Really, just look at all of us who LOVE the Cullen Dating and Dorian epic bff simulator, I mean Dragon Age Inquisition. I get it is the future. I get it. Just like how everyone in the 60’s thought we would be in flying cars and dress a certain way and really here we are dressing like it is a more updated 1969. I am not saying the game as a whole sucks, no far from it. Damn it is fun, so much fun! But, the small things that can turn into big things. Annoying things just take the wind out of the sails. Sails for a AAA game that had so much hype and yet fell flat. Really, I am scared Dragon Age will have the same fate. Which Inquisition is so beautiful.  Don’t rush games, we can wait. Impatiently, but we will wait. We will still spend our money when the finished product comes out. The potential was there. It was there. How will it bounce back? I still am going to play the heck out of Mass Effect because it is fun. I might just grumble a bit over the little things…

Mass Effect Andromeda
We both like purple, BFFs?

OK, So enough of that, lets look at this here makeup.

Straight from your Pathfinder Nexus Salon…..

milani foundation and NYX concealer

not really….

You can pick colors! And transparency.

lets see you can pick blue

This is one of the looks! I am not even kidding!

Or purple….



Isn’t we wont even get into the neon blush and spotted shadow. For that I think a cream would be needed.  You can also pick mermaid colored hair, however hair options are also very limited. Which was also a complaint of Dragon Age, which leads people to Modding. With modding you can get better customization. Right now I haven’t heard of much Modding for Mass Effect, I know there is for DAI, for PC.

I got help a bit.

So really, there isn’t much to this “look”

If you cosplay it would be easy to recreate as there isn’t much thought to it. I used The Milani foundation 2 in 1 concealer foundation and Nyx concealer. Although with this you really don’t need the concealer for under eyes..because um you are a purple raccoon. You basically just apply in a small square from eyebrow to right above the orbital bone(cheekbone) I then added a bit of a darker blue and black to the crease and corner of my eyes, followed up with black eyeliner. it is such a silly thing.

I woke up from Hypersleep like this.

HAHAHAHA I hope you had as much fun laughing at this as I did, doing this “look” are there any other video game makeup you want me to do? This was fun!

Outfit of the day, green shirt dress and graphic tee.

green ootd

To say I love this tee is an understatement. I adore this tee, ADORE it! You wouldn’t blame me either when you feel how soft the tee is. A great graphic tee and a great texture shirt. I decided to wear it with my green shirt dress from Target and H&M leggings. And of course my JUSTFAB shoes and bag. My hair was crazy so I wore it up in a top knot. I love outfits like this when you just got to the closet and grab the pieces you want to wear and not think about it.

No thinking just fashion. Just comfy.

TArget style and justfab

Today is justa  sum up of my week or rather MARCH in general. I was supposed to volunteer at my son’s school as ELSA, and murphy’s law came up and slapped me in the face. Maybe it is Karma for making fun of Mass Effect Andromeda so much lately. Anways, I have really bad PMS and neck spasms. The medication makes me retain water, and of course PMS makes you just Bleh everywhere. SO, I finally tried on the dress again(which fit last week) and the zipper was like “NOPE” and I couldn’t get it to zip at all. Wonderful, embarrassing. SO, I wore different bras, a spanx thing and nope. I did get the dress zipped at one point to which it didn’t stay zipped. Now when the dress was originally made it was measured a bit off. And there was not a lot of wiggle room. So, yeah, I had to tell them I couldn’t do it. Which hurts. I cried over a dress. A silly dress, and disappointing the kiddies. Crap. I feel like the worse person ever.

OOTD: Monochrome basics.



Everyone needs those basics in their closet. Like White tees, black tees, plain tanks, etc. And this tee is perfect as a great basic. And you will never ever guess where I got it! I will wait….

Nope not H&M, good guess though. Walmart, guys, Walmart. Yeah, I got this basic white tee from Walmart. And what is even more staggering is how little it cost me. Ready for this, you may need to sit for this…. $2.87. YES, $2 freaking dollars and eighty seven cents. WHAT?! Why? How? Walmart is how. And while I do not buy a lot of clothing from there, I do think these basics are great and affordable.

OOTD monochrome basics

  • Why is this such big deal? I have a messy bouncy little. He loves to paint, he loves to draw, he loves to be dirty, and he loves to wipe his hands on MOM. The last thing I want to do is have him wipe his hands on an expensive basic like this. I can get why some pay $60+ on a plain….white…tee shirt. For me right now I will stick with my cheapies when it comes to the basic plain tees.But my silly butt will pay some for a great graphic tee, but a basic? Not sure why my loci is weird. To each their own I guess. To each their own. 

But, for me, I like this, because if my little gets it dirty I wont cry over it. If I spill coffee on it I wont yell at myself over it. I will try to get the stain out and then if not *toss and dump* or cut up for cleaning rags. Reuse and recycle, right?

OH and PS, ladies, if your man has socks that are OLD as dirt and holey cut them up and make rags…..I do that(after washing them of course)

What is it with men and holding on to holey socks and underwear? Really?

OK so I got off topic.

The tee comes in several colors. I got black and white. I will probably get more and P.S. These Junior shirts run way hella small, this is a MEDIUM. SO go up a size or two..I did.



SO, this particular outfit I decided to wear the tee with my black faux leggings and a chunky statement necklace. I pulled out the Justfab bag and heels as well as the H&M bomber. For an exceptional monochrome ootd.

This is an outfit that can be worn day and night. So if you have to be somewhere at night no worries, just add nothing and go.

I took my little with me who didn’t want to be bothered with pictures so he played with his car next to the tripod.

This was the best I got.

The thing about shooting pictures of yourself, by yourself is that people tend to stare, which you do get used to it. And when it isn’t busy you take pictures and that is when all the people magically appear as if they are NPC in a video game and just appear. Like WTH, you weren’t here a second ago.

The $2 tank and a metallic skirt.


H&M jacket Walmart tank Zaful Skirt and neckalce OOTD

I have a little secret. That secret will make you smile, the tank I am wearing is under $2!!! WOW! I got it on a trip to Walmart for my son’s fave snack, strawberries. WOW, does that kid love strawberries. Anyways, I saw the price and thought I need one of these. Why? I wear it under a lace up shirt and other blouses. But what makes it special is that it is cheap as hell and that it is pretty decent. Walmart, I braved it to get strawberries and got a great basic tank top.

OOTD metallic skirt

There is nothing more perfect than a great basic tee and a great basic Tank. Which for FL summers it is as important as a pair of Flippity flops.

OK, and bug spray. But it is just as important. The key is styling them and a good and wonderful strapless bra.

MY dog is always facing the wrong way….ugh.

Anyways, the great thing about fashion blogging is finding these super pieces and sharing them and this was one I had to share with you all. And so, I decided to style it with a metallic skirt and the bomber jacket I got from H&M for under $20! And for the shoes, no heels I have decided to wear my fave flats by ALDO, the Leopard print shoes add a bit of edge to the black and metallic outfit, but they are more camo here. No wonder Jaguars have them in the forests. You wouldn’t see them…hahah

Tulle skirt and metallic shoes.

OOTD tulle skirt and graphic tee

Today, it would seem that the weather got confused somewhat and decided to skip spring and go right into summer. It was almost 90 today! WOW! So, yeah. I was hoping to take my little to the beach this weekend but, um it will be too cold for us to really enjoy the fun. Wind will make it a bit chillier than the temp says. Anyways, today I wore my tulle skirt and graphic tee, with my metallic shoes and red bag that matched the tee. I love this combo, it is simple it is comfortable. And the shoes add that extra amount of flash! P.s the shoes also come in a shiny SILVER!!!!

I love how the tulle trend is still going strong and how marvelous it is.

ootdThis outfit just makes me want to twirl and spin. But since I am not surviving on much sleep, I figured it would be an awkward bad Idea to do that.  The reason I am not surviving on sleep(again) is my little was up at 1 am. Again and then he finally fell asleep an hour later. So, I fell asleep on his floor. And then was woken up by hubby who in an hour had to be up and getting ready to catch a red eye flight. I went to bed at 11pm. So that is how much sleep I got. He left, I went back to bed only to get back up 2 hours later to get the little ready for school. Was going to shoot blog pictures not at the zoo, because sometimes when it is busy the looks are weird. Even though I take pictures of family adventures with the tripod so we are ALL in the pictures. #fashionbloggerproblems

My son pushed his stroller into the picture. HA. Silly.

We went to see the otters, my son’s fave thing ever. He loves them so much!

If you follow me on Instagram @gofashiondeals you may have seen some of our shenanigans. I love these moments with my little. It is always a good time. Always.

We then saw the Bald Eagles which are my fave bird of prey!

My little was tugging on me when taking this picture.

So freaking cute!!!!

Today the humidity was horrible so I didn’t even try to fix my hair. BUT, expect a post on my hair faves soon.

“Mom, you are a freak” is what he must have been thinking

Yes, yes I am.

We also went to the reptile house! but i didn’t take pics this time.

Over all it was a fun day and we did manage to get some good pictures, strange looks and all. HAHAH.
