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?

OOTD gofashiondeals

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.

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?

Life lately. Art fest and wine tastings.

Winter park FL ARt fext

SO about a weekend ago we went on a train ride to Winter Park for the art fest they were having. Lots of local artists and food. It was a fun event to go for free. It is always a great idea to keep an eye out for things like that here. I was trying to take pictures of things while having the hubby and the wee lad with me. Hubby was telling me to take lots of pictures for the blog, and there really was no space, too many people and when you stand still to take a photo, the people are bumping into you. So I didn’t get a lot. Bummer.

I managed a selfie and pictures of my fam.

These two, rode the train and were ready to go and here I am taking pictures of them.

 

This watch, I love mine so much I bought my hubby a matching one for his birthday!

We walked around looking for coffee for the first 15mins, as I was up all night before with the little who DOESNT want to sleep in his bed.

For the day, I wore a lace up body suit and flares with my flats by JUSTFAB.

Nothing spectacular. I wish I had gotten more pictures of the event. But I just didn’t get a real chance to, and when you have a child with ASD, they tend to not want to just be still for that. With the noise and all the stimuli it was over whelming. So we didn’t stay long. And that is OK. The little enjoyed the train and that was the best part. The Train.

AND for the record I HATE UMBRELLA STROLLERS!

HATE!

HATE I SAY!

ANd then fast forward to this weekend and we(mom and I) went to a wine tasting at World Market.

 

I got some really good wines! You can not leave me alone in a store when I have been drinking. Shit like this happens.  😉

Hope you all had a marvelous weekend!

Purple Pastels outfit

pastel outfit of the day

Hello there and happy Monday! Bleh Monday’s is more like it, am I right? Yeah. Anways, today I was feelin the spring vibes and so I got out the flowy purple skirt and purple heels. Then thought, crap what to wear with this? Ummmm….crap. SO, I did the logical ME thing and grabbed the nearest graphic tee which is this one from H&M which I love so much! And put the two together because why not?! It is my go to. Since it was 45 degrees outside I wore a denim jacket also H&M, and what is great is as it warms up a bit I can still keep the jacket on without dying.

That is a plus right? Sure.

gofashiondealsWhat even is this face? OK, so this outfit, I love it. It is totally spring, it is so much fun to wear because when you wear a skirt like this it is just begging to be twirled in and tossed about.

SPring ootd

Like that BAM. The great thing about this kind of Chiffon Midi skirt is they are super affordable. The trick is finding this kind of chiffon skirt. Most people are doing tulle right now, so chiffon has gone more to a maxi skirt and they sometimes are NOT as flowing as this one. OR rather twirl worthy. (although I do have some that are) REst assured I will have found some and will link to something similar below. Promise.

#ootd Gofashiondeals

 

SO, i am hoping pain is not showing on my face. I twisted my ankle on a cat last night. OUCH. MY big furball cat decided laying down in front of me while I was walking was a great and marvelous cat thing to do. And Well, I tripped over him. And I twisted the heck out of my ankle there. The left one. This was also the same foot healing from a couch related injury. My furniture attacks me. Anyways, It is hurting(still is) And for this shoot I took my ankle wrap off. Because it just looks awful(there is a coffee stain on it. from when I dropped some iced coffee on the foot.)  I(after this ) took the shoe off, put the brace back on and am wearing the SpongeBob Squeeky shoes. Then because I was having a rough morning I treated myself to a new skirt and shirt(yes another tee) and a cup of Starbucks. The Spring cups are blank and meant for you to draw on them. So I DID. I drew how I was feeling. You may have seen it on my insta stories.

And Instagram @gofashiondeals

Mondays…..Ugh.

My cup is secretly judging my TOO FACED lippie there… if you want to see why read this here. I love that makeup brand just this time around things are not fairing well. Read up and you will know why.

Patience  on a Monday.

flatlay too faced

Today is a bit of a great day, although my feathers are a bit ruffled.I am going to go a small rant. I’m am having a problem with patience.  When it comes to my kid I can very patient when it merrits. When it comes to me the same. But! And there is a but,(heh) when it comes to when I order something online and there is no mention that things are delayed, no emails, etc. One can be a bit irritated as to why there is not communication between customer and store. It’s understandible. So you call customer service to see why order is pending. Get told that it is due to mass amounts of orders and they were not prepared for the bulk of orders from sale and from new collection.  Again understandable IF there was some sort of communication via mass email saying orders may be delayed. So after that and no eta what so ever I get an email saying it is due to blizzards..mkay. then I check back(this morning) customer service has no idea what I am talking about(the email and the reason for blizzard delay in orders) and said the same thing the last service rep said. So. Yeah..a bit disgruntled. A bit. I want my powder and my palatte…😢 And let it be known I have never had this happen before with ordering.

tabby catMy orders from Too Faced have never been like this. And(I hate throwing them under the semi truck) yet, here we are. Getting two different stories or excused from them over orders. Again as I stated understandable if they had told me a week into my order still processing. I am running out of patience, which is not normal for someone like me, who is usually not so worried about things like this. I have ordered things from other companies which take a couple of weeks to process and ship. So, why am I writing about this? Well, that is what life is. And we are all about conversations right? And I would say the same things to my friends, I would rant and rave about this silliness. Which in the grand Scheme of things, is not so bad compared to other things. Like arguing with insurance companies over coverage of things necessary for your kid. Or as bad as other things. Makes you feel like you shouldn’t care, total first world problems. But, also you know it is OK, at the same time because you have spent the money. And I called today to actually cancel my order so I could just go to my local ULTA and just get the damned powder in person. But, they said the invoice was too far on to do so. SO, I am stuck in make up limbo!! NOOOOOO. OH, well I know there are others stuck with me and we can all wait impatiently and patiently for our makeups.

Until next time friends! The next posts will be all about our adventure of the Winter Park Art fest. And some great outfits!

Family funtime! Sea life Orlando.

sea life oralndo

If you ever get to Orlando Florida and need something to do on say a rainy day check out the Sea Life Aquarium out by the Orlando Eye and Madame Tussauds.  There are some shops and eateries near by as well. We decided to take the little there since he absolutely loves “fissies” and “Shawks”

Tickets are available for purchase online as well as at the entry. And for the record it is best to go EARLY. The place opens at 10AM. SO if you have a little with Sensory issues like mine has get there early and avoid the crowds.

seal life ORLANDOWhen you get in you are greated by some awesome and friendly staff who take your picture and then you are sent on your merry way to begin the “journey” . You know you spend too much time at Universal when you stand in the round room with the aquarium and are waiting for the doors to open on their own for the “adventure” to begin. We stood there for a while like what now? Um, it is not like Universal or Sea World.

Dorks….the lot of us. All the pictures were blurry one of us looking around like when do the doors open? Soon we figured it out and went on.

We saw fishies immediately and got some great pictures of the Jellies.

There is a great amount of aquariums and multiple sea creatures to look at! And there is a 360 tunnel to see fish!

SO, How to survive with a little.

Since my little is ASD, this place was great for him, when the sound level was lower and people didn’t start to pack in like sardines. So how did we handle the situation? Well that backpack is one way. Yes we got the backpack with the tether. Our son will run off and unlike other children he wont acknowledge his name. Most of the time he didn’t need the tether except on a few occasions. He wants to run and explore and we want to make sure he is safe. HE is getting too big for his stroller and where is the fun in always being in one of those? He likes this one because it holds his dinosaur George and his sippy cups. It also is insulated so can be a mini cooler for the little. This pack is a game changer for us. We got it on Amazon.

The sensory part, he got over stimulated towards the end and it was time to go. We pretty much know when it is time to leave when he starts ttrying to find his way out of places, So we go with the flow. With kids like this it is good to push the boundaries a little but not overly, since one time of horror will bring years of anguish.(looking at you peas!)

Now this aquarium is very interactive which is great for kids and adults alike. There are rock pools which my son LOVED! Of course I was too busy taking pictures. #momlife

Sorry for blurry pics, my little sometimes makes it hard to take them clearly. lol.

 

It was a lot of fun!

Exhaustion and a cant stop wont stop attitude.

gofashiondealsIt is no secret that I have been a bit tired as of late. I have a kid that just won’t sleep through the night anymore. One reason being he has a cough that comes during the night (allergies) and 2 I just don’t know why . I am tired. Exhausted. And yet, I still am trying to find time to get shit done. Blog shit, house shit,  sleep shit. That is over rated by now the sleeping bit. But this whole lack of that is taking its toll. The dark circles that no amount of magical concealer will fix. Praise God for photoshop (I only use it for lightening, darkening, and dark circles ok and bad pimples) it can do what concealer cant. So, why not take a break, you may ask yourself.

Gofashiondeals

Because of that can’t stop won’t stop attitude. I have to get all my shit done, friends, all of it. And this blog is my oasis, just as much as my Xbox is. Although the stress from this is a different kind of stress. It is the stress I like the challenging kind, the creative kind. It’s good.

Lately though I have been feeling slacking in that dept. I spend a lot of time a doctor offices with my little. As a parent with a child who has ASD, it is sometimes hard for us to remember us. Take time for us. And I unfortunately  am also the kind that just can not sit still, can not do nothing. Even dead tired I have to get the dishes done, even dead tired I have to get the little to his appointments. That can’t stop won’t stop attitude keeps me a float as much as my coffee does. And as far as the blog is concerned it is my business. My creation (even though it will be changed in future.we are working on the details.) . I am still trying to get traffic back up from when I was sick for most of January.ugh.

So I figured I would post a bit of what’s going on. A bit of nonsense.  Really is this post going anywhere or am I rambling like an exhausted weirdo?

Maybe

.or

Maybe not.

Cropped

OOTD whit crop top

Isn’t it funny we all have those pieces in the closet we either forget about or say “I’ll wear that after such and such reason” Well, this shirt is that one. The first one actually,is how I feel about it. And since the weather has been summerish, I figured why not get out the ol crop top and wear it! SO, wear it I did. I put on some flared jeans, grabbed my fave ALDO shoes and Oscar DelaRenta bag. Made for the perfect what is this weather outfit! And to give it some of my “edge” if that is even a thing, I put on my sunnies from Zaful and added a dark lipstick from Urban Decay, in conspiracy. Side note, this particular color has a nice purple undertone to the brown and also lots of gold flake. So EXFOLIATE! I love this crochet style lace, and I love that a few years after me getting from SHEINit( isn’t available anymore but I will link to something similar) the shirt is still in. Still very in. I want the red dress of this style lace. I want to have that soooo bad. Anyways.

Crochet lace top

Crops are great! The key is to balance them so for that I usually put on higher waist pants and skirts. That balanced it out more. And it is OK, if the tum tum shows. Confidence is key!

OOTD Flares and crop top

So, I feel like I haven’t been getting stuff done around here, at home and on the blog. This whole no sleep thing is driving me crazy. Any advice? All those people who said to me when my son was a newborn “Don’t worry mama, he will sleep through the night soon, and then you will too.” LIARS! I think they forgot this part of the toddler stage, where the little is on the cusp of no longer being considered a toddler. Where they are refusing bedtime and get up a lot through the night. Add my son always having a bit of a night fear anyways and his ASD and I have a cup of good times all night. Seriously, this is getting to me and my health I feel. I have been slacking on the blog,too tired. Been slacking on things sort of around the house,to tired. Slacking on my own health, too tired. The thing is for me, to stay off the heart meds I need to be active. I loved exercising when I could, but now I just want to lay on the couch and hope to fall asleep for even a little bit. LAst night we had the little in the bed with us, he got up and got into bed with us. Which I don’t mind, but he tosses and turns a lot. Constantly making sure WE are still in the bed. poor kid, poor mommy, and poor daddy.

Anyways, made myself a smoothie and I am currently trying to figure out the best way to do my curly hair care and style how to post. I think I need a bit more coffee.
