studded flashback

Wow, these pictures were taken 7 freakin years ago! Holy shit…I looked good! But thats not what I want to brag about here. I just wanted to share my jeans with all of you. I had a lot more time on my hands then with only one child (complete with t-ball stand in background lol) and no mortgage payment yet….ooo the freedom. I was always playing with my wardrobe and doing whatever I could to get creative. I sold the jeans long ago on ebay, but the memory remains.

What do ya think of those?

good reads

I am so obsessed by books, it’s scary. I love the stories, I love the book covers, I love the smell of the ink-stained pages. I am hopelessly a literature addict at heart.
To keep track of what I have read, am currently reading and every book I want to read, I use Goodreads. So, if you’re a member or you sign-up to be, add me as a friend (jmdezines@gmail.com). My current read is Fingersmith by Sarah Waters. It’s an amazing book and I can’t wait to read more by her.

parallel universe

I took my title from Rachel Zoe’s newsletter – The Zoe Report. If you haven’t signed up for it, you must!
So, with fall approaching, I have my eyes set on all the boots and outer wear springing up. I love these Fornarina Suede Wedges at Urban Outfitters, which carry a $200 price tag, not bad. But Nine West has these Jurra Suede Wedges at $99. The downside is that the Nine West shoes don’t ship until 9/19, but if I do wait until then and decide to shop in-store and purchase these boots from their Vintage America Collection, I can take advantage of their Soles 4 Souls¬†campaign. You bring in a pair of gently worn shoes to donate and get 15% of your purchase that day or a later on-line purchase. I love the fact that Nine West is doing this.

oh the times, they are a changin’

I know I have had a lack of posts recently and felt that my blog needed to take a backseat to my real life for a while. So many changes go on in ones life and some are for the better and some are for the worst. I like to take those changes that seem that they’re for the worst and bring something good out of them. One wise woman said to me in life that if you cant laugh your way through things, then you’re doomed, poor girl, doomed. So I have my humor and look at things with my humor in hand; burst of laughter ready at the go.
Soooo. With change comes more change! At this new state of change that has emerged, I feel the need to change my surroundings. I want to update the interior of my home. Make it my own.
I bought my house about 5 years ago and feel it needs a change as well. So heres a bit of what I am thinking about:
