smells like money.....

almost about a year ago we stood at the Ritz Carlton due to the power outage in our neighborhood it's LONG story but we stood at this fabulous place for free with our home owner's insurance.... we felt like a million bucks!!!! night swimming in the roof top pool, having a five course meal in our room, relaxing in the lushes bed and enjoying the bathroom with all the little goodies left in there for us. we came home "smelling like money" because every one kept telling us how good we smelled so, now that we have finally gave in a bought a actual size bottle of "smells like money" i can't wait for it to get here..... it is the perfect scent for male or female with a scent that last all day long and for me that's worth it because i hate to spray my favorite perfume only to realize that i can no longer smell it... you feel me....  this lotion is FABULOUS  and will be here before i know it.... excited!!!!

got to have it : lust vs must

we all have to think about our budget when we see the latest purse, shoes, nail polish or even toys for kiddos...

LUST or MUST......... check out a these items i think can help save you money but keep you fashionable....

1.  opi $ 9 OPI vs chanel $ 26 with both them laid out you can't even tell the difference.....

2. Orange has been all over the runway so with that here's the latest crossbody bag that goes with the new trend but who know how it will last but don't worry this one won't break the bank getting this purse....(it may not look exactly the same but for the cost it's worth it)

                                                Target $ 14.99    VS    Marc Jacobs $ 158

family day out

we try our hardest to keep our son busy as a bee and sometimes we love to be a kid with him. we went to universal studios for the day and a blast running around the park like crazy...my outfit fit so well with the day grey converse, h&m shorts, striped sailor t-shirt from forever21 and pulled back hair out of my face so i could enjoy everything from eating cotton candy until our tummies hurt,getting on rides....just living life as a parent and a child with him was so great.

this kid keeps us going....not only laughing but with lots of love!!!

birthday wishes....


this past week was my beautiful, accomplished sister's 21st birthday... the celebration started with dinner at her favorite mac and cheese spot in downtown l.a. called pete's cafe. food was yummy; leo's plate was more delicious then mine but i'll survive. after some cocktails....we walked down to the mezz bar at the alexandria hotel to enjoy the live band for art walk. sitting their flashing back though all the corky memories,good times,bad times,laughter and life speech i realized that she has transformed into a beautiful, smart, loving young lady that i am proud to call my sister. this was a great night to many too come i can't wait to do this again or look back when we're old and grey... and laugh at our fashion, moments we shared that night or just sit in silent and reflect on the bond we've created together as sisters and as friends.


“This life is what you make it. Not matter what, you're going to mess up sometimes, it's a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you're going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends - they'll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, somg go. The ones that stay with you through everything - they're your true best friends. Don't let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world. As for lovers, well, they'll come and go too. And babve, I hate to say it, most of them - actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you can't give up becuase if you give up, you'll never find your soul mate. You'll never find that half who makes you whole and that goes for everything. Just because you fail once, doesn't mean you're gonna fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don't, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life's a beautiful thing and there's so much to smile about.” ― Marilyn Monroe
