Lately I've been trying to keep up with posting 5 days a week on my blog, sometimes more... There is a price to pay by doing this... If i'm killing it in the blog world, then that means my poor hubby is living off of instant noodles and there is a basket full of dirty laundry that needs to be washed...

I still have yet to find a good balance between my blog life and my personal life... 
What's your secret?

This is something I do when I don't want to wear a cardigan to hide my fat arms.. I wear a button down shirt instead! Ta-da! FAT GONE! *poof!

STYLIE: Pink Stripes and Pink Florals

"i'm a nobody blogger..."

So lately I've been thinking about the sharing in the blogging community... I've come to realize that some bloggers don't like to share.. They don't like to share ideas, tips, vendor/brand contact information, or secrets to their success... Every now and then I meet a blogger who is very vague on answering questions... Even though i've been blogging since 2011, I still consider myself to be a newbie because I still have absolutely no idea what i'm doing and how to jump start my blog to success....so when I meet other bloggers, I love to ask them questions to get any kind of tip that would help me.. I don't quite understand why all the secrecy because I honestly believe that there's enough business to go around - no need to compete with me people, I'm a nobody blogger. who has yet to find her niche...

Anyways... my little rant is over now...  I wish this floral skirt was still available in all sizes b/c it's become my favorite print skirt! the colors are just beautiful... Everything else i'm wearing should be still available in all sizes... I especially love this pink striped top and it's on sale!

LIFESTYLE: Photobombed

Blogging with a little one is pretty tough.
I don't know how other mom's do it!

Take outfit photos for an example.





My hubby and I can't get through a "shoot" without our little one running over to me to get in the picture... She's the biggest photobomber I know...Sometimes it's a little inconvenient b/c we're trying to be quick - but when she leans in to give me a kiss, it's not such an inconvenience anymore... 

thank you yo everyone who left me a sweet birthday comment yesterday. 
xoxo

LIFESTYLE: Another Year

Today is my birthday.






I have mixed emotions... I dislike getting older.. Perhaps if I was still in my 20's I wouldn't mind as much.. but being in my early 30's, argh... I can feel my skin getting thinner and the wrinkles creasing in. My metabolism has slowed down and I don't have the energy I once had... 

But, on the flip side... I'm happy with where I am in my life and I guess that's all that matters. 

I don't have much plans for my birthday. It's funny b/c as the years go on, birthdays become a less important to me. I didn't even really remember it was my birthday until my husband asked me what I wanted to do.  Like the years before, I will be spending today with my my loving husband, my beautiful daughter, my faithful widowed mom and my super encouraging brother/sister in law and their kids... Perfect way to celebrate.  

outfit detais:  sorry but everything i'm wearing is old (just like me)!
