Text Me!

Back in the day....many, many years ago when I was a teenager, I only wish I could have been as cool as this 12-year-old: Lil' Miss Sydney. Not only is she absolutely adorable, has a big beautiful heart and not to mention hair (thank you Brazilian Blowout!), is an amazing singer-song writer, but she has impeccable style. I can only wish my life could have been this cool when I was her age. Back in my teenage days straightening irons did not exist, my bangs were "punked" as high as I could get them, our skinny pants had stir-ups attached, cell phones did not exist...more less know what texting is, and I'm pretty sure the coolest pair of shoes I owned were either Tretorns or Keds. Check out Sydney's amazing new boots from her latest photo shoot. The Rocket Dog "Slinger" Boot. You can buy them here or stop in your local Off Broadway Shoes to pick up a pair.

Check out Sydney's music page here. You can preview a lot of her own music and a few covers. You can see her a a few local Lexington places, including: WoodSong's Old Time Radio Hour, Natasha's Bistro & Bar (Saturday acoustic), and other local events. Hope you enjoy the boots and the music! Love ya Syd!

Dear Santa....

I absolutely love the Christmas season now that I do not work retail. Those of you who have worked retail during the Holidays know exactly what I mean! Christmas Shoppers are just plain be nice to the people working at the stores. They only get lots of unhappy shoppers, especially those that wait until the last minute (like me) and that can make for a miserable, long work day. Now...back to presents for me...remember...this is my blog and it's all about what I want. Plus, I have a hard time shopping for others because I stress over the gift being the "perfect gift." And I can't post their gifts on here or they'd know what I bought I have not bought one gift for Christmas yet. I will not be the person finished by Black Friday and I will be the person grabbing a last minute gift the week of Christmas. It's just how it is and I am okay with that. If I had to buy my own gifts, life would be much easier. I already know what I would ask Santa for (in order of most desired of course):

Apple iPad (I am not picky on the "gigs" or wifi vs. 3G... I just want one!)

Protection for my iPad (Candy Shell Speck Case) $49.00
I really wanted a monogrammed version of these iPhone covers, but they do not yet exist.

 Express Moto Faux Leather Jacket $98
Not sure if I can's currently on sale 30% off  through 11/14 and I have a $20 off $60 purchase, so this jacket would cost me $51.52. Buy it here.

Chelsea Handler's Book "Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang"

Ann Taylor Loft Night Suede Pump $98.00.
I do not own a single pair of closed toe black pumps, just booties. Buy it here.

Burberry Brit Perfume.
I hate buying myself Perfume, but I really do love this scent. I have wanted it for a few years now and I have yet to purchase it. Retails ridiculously high at Ulta...but cheaper at Kohl's and Gordman's.

Chance of Flurries....

Brrrr...shiver, shiver. I hate the cold. There is nothing more miserable than being so cold that you can't feel your feet, can't feel your fingers, and your back hurts from shivering so hard. I do however love, love, love putting on a cozy sweater to warm up. And just when I thought all the great fall sweaters were out on the shelves...they hit me with more! Dang them. The good news is...late November, December, and January = Fabulous Sales on these great sweaters!
American Eagle has stepped up their game and are putting out some great options:

AE Snowflake Toggle $79.50 buy here

Aerie Leopard Cardi $69.50 get it here

There are some wish list options from my new favorite, Ann Taylor Loft:

What's your favorite thing to put on when the weather cools down?
