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!

Zaful haul!

Hi friends! Happy New years eve! Today on the blog I want to talk about shopping! No surprise there, it is what I do best besides being a mom and wifey. So I teamed up with Zaful to share some of the great pieces they have and how affordable it is! So let’s look at what I got! Now today’s post is just a shopping haul, I am still sick in bed, yeah. It sucks. The whole house is sick.

Zaful mother of dragons sweater
Zaful mother of dragons sweater $19.49

The quality of the text sweater is good, this is my second graphic sweatshirt from Zaful and for the price it isn’t too shabby! I ordered a size medium so I could have it a bit baggy as that is how I like my sweatshirts, however, it fits like a Small.SO if you want a baggy sweater get a larger size. The sweater is pretty soft and is light, good for layering and for our weird weather here in the South.

Zaful green velvet shirtdress
Zaful velvet dress $14.49

this dress is so beautiful and the pictures do it no justice unless worn. And since the dress is $14.49 can’t go wrong with such a simple and elegant dress.

(trying to take this picture with a 3yr old hanging on your arm is hard work!) The velvet is so so soft and very luxe for being under $15. I love the green!!!!!!!! Just love it!

Pearl necklace $4.95 moon and stars earrings $4.17 lace up wide belt $12.99

i have been wanting this belt sooo long. I was inspired by Saint Laurent, but thanks to Zaful the belt being $12.99 I don’t have to pay the Saint Laurent price.

The necklace I chose has that boho appeal to it and I love wearing these chunky necklaces with tees, button down blouses, and other things. It actually isn’t heavy at all, and comes with pearl earrings. The pearl necklace is such a steal at $4.95!! And the gorgeous star and moon earrings at $4.19 which are nickel free! For sensitive skin like mine it does make a difference.

I ordered everything a size up, which worked out well. The belt and jewelry are all one size. But if size is a worry, go up a size and you should be fine. I always measure and read reviews on their site for size differences. It really helps and of course their customer service is always there to help. I am so excited to FINALLY be able to share my true Saint Laurent inspired outfit with you all. This is something I have been working on for a while now. The wide belt I got is so popular it kept selling out!

The customer service is pretty good with Zaful they respond to questions rather quickly and the site is super easy to navigate. Shopping is a breeze and they have shoes, bags, jewelry, clothes. And let’s talk about shipping, since where the package comes from it can take a couple of weeks at most. But the order get processed and filled quickly, customs takes time in the US. But the items are worth the little wait. Everything comes individually packaged and I haven’t had anything arrive broken or damaged. SO that is good!

SO, have you shopped with Zaful before? If you haven’t you definitely should!

Vintage florals with Newchic!

Newchic dress

Hi there friends! And what a day! I hope you got a lot of candy last night. I spent the night on the couch with my little one sick as anything. He was fine, me not so much. And still today not that great. But when you are a bloggeraholic you feel that need to get up and get shit done. And so here I am, makeup on, in a new dress and lounging around in my Sweet Dreams VS slippers. All while Dragon Age inquisition is playing in the background. The world can be saved in a bit.

Being sick sucks.

I wanted to go OUT and get these pictures done, and since I take all my own photos, I was not in the mood to drag everything around. I got in the car, sat there for about 4 minutes and then got back out and took my pictures here at home while I was on the verge of crashing onto the couch. Good times.

Today’s outfit I guess we should speak about that. RIght?

Sure. Yup. YESSIREE.

I need coffee.

NEwchic Maxi dress

OK, So this dress was kindly sent to me by Newchic and I really love it. It is close to the picture of it and that is great! Because sometimes you get something and it is not much like the pic. sad to say it does happen. The only thing that is really different from the picture are the sleeves.

NewChic dressI got this dress in a size medium. As things run small, this was a good thing. While the skirt at a size M was a bit big this dress fits Perfectly! Not too tight, not too short, not too loose. Just right.

And I know move along goldie locks.

My only real complaint is the dress is SEE THROUGH.  But with a good slip under it that would not be a problem.  Still LINE THE FREAKING DRESSES PLEASE!  I love the chiffon dresses, but there needs a lining. My Lulu’s dress has one, and it is the same material and my Express dresses have the same. Even my HM chiffon dress has a lining. That is my only issue.

Other than that GREAT especially for the price of the dress.

Being $15.39 not bad.  I will do a side by side of the dress vs my dress.

new chic maxi dress #ootdI went for a monochrome(i know, i know again) look. And I love the grays and the black and the whites. Then a flash of blue nail polish and bold wine red lip.


2016-11-01_10.20.04.jpgTo me this dress has a more Victorian feel to it than a Boho charm. Maybe it is the print? Or maybe I have been watching too much Great British bake off. Or it is a combo. I think the print and the sleeves and the empire waist give it that modern Victorian charm. Either way Newchic did a great job with this Dress, and I need to get a wide leather belt with buckles to give it that YSL or Valentino effect.

NewchicThe sleeves are about what is really different. But that is really minor.

With evening dresses you do not have to go with the standard black evening dress. You can go with a more striking look with a elegant red evening dress. Red evening dresses like the one above can be a statement dress, but you don’t have to go the Jessica Rabbit route. A gorgeous neckline like the picture above can be just as alluring.

I love how beautiful the dresses at SherryLondon are and they have so many it is hard to choose from. But each is stunning and will be sure to make you the bell of the ball. As much as I love the shorter dresses, there is something about the Long Evening dresses that I just adore. I can not get enough of staring at them and thinking I will make a reason to wear them. It isn’t weird to wear a ball gown to the mail box right?

What do you think? Have you heard of SherryLondon?
