Tall Tale

I won these knee high boots (Tall Tale) from Bakers in June through the Shoeternity Contest. I received them last week and I couldn't wait to see what outfits I could put together for these boots! I LOVE boots, they are so versatile because you can throw them on with jeans, shorts, skirts, or dresses & you have the option of wearing them high or folding them down. The color is a neutral color, making it very easy to pair them with just about any color. 

These boots are extremely comfortable, I went up .5 size because I always use thick socks when I wear boots.  They are available in tan, brown, and black.  These boots are a must have for Fall.  If you like boots like I do you would definitely get your money's worth.   I am thinking about getting the brown boots next!

Dress: Hautelook $20

CorsetChick: Baby Pink Sweetheart Shape Corset

I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to work with CorsetChick.  I chose this beautiful baby pink corset.  CorsetChick sells Corset tops, plus size corsets, corset dresses, underbust corsets, corset costumes, and many more items.  Their shipping is very fast, they are located in Sunrise, Florida, and my corset arrived about 3 days after it shipped!  I was in love when I opened my package, the color of the corset is just beautiful, it's a soft pink color.  
  The Corset comes with a matching underwear.  It has silver hooks in the front of the corset making it very easy to put on.

The back of the corset has really pretty ribbon where you can adjust how tight you want to make the corset.

I paired my corset with one of my favorite shoes, my pink Hello Kitty peep toe glitter heels.

The quality of the corset is amazing!  I have a couple of corsets from Fredericks of Hollywood, and the CorsetChick beats them as far as quality and price goes!  I was nervous when trying to choose an outfit for this corset since I had never worn a corset as a top before.  I already had an idea of what I wanted to pair with the corset, I just wasn't sure how it would look on me.  I am happy with the look I put together I wanted it to look sweet and innocent, and not too revealing.  

 Black skirt is a Lauren Conrad Skirt $15 at Kohl's

This corset can be worn as lingerie, as a Halloween costume, under a strapless dress to keep everything smoothed out.  I am very excited to let you know that  CorsetChick agreed to host my very  first sponsored giveaway!  One of my lucky fans will win and choose a Corset from their online store valued up to $30!

Birthday Princess

This birthday I felt like a birthday princess.  I started off my day by taking my 2 little one's Mike (4) and Violet (2) to Dave & Busters to use the gift certificate I was sent.  The kids had fun, we pretty much had the entire building to ourselves.  I decided to wear a casual outfit since I was going to be running after my 2 little one's.  I wore one of my favorite dresses from ELLE, black blazer, and some black flats.

When my 2 older kids David (10) and Nicole (7) got home from school we decided to cut the cake.  I got one of my favorite cakes ever Chocoflan, it is flan on the bottom layer and chocolate cake on the top layer.  It had strawberries and peaches with frosting, and a very cute Hello Kitty cupcake in the middle of the cake.  

I started getting ready for dinner with my very good friend Iris.  Every year for the past 3 yrs I receive a $30 gift certificate from Benihanna's so it has become a tradition to have dinner there for my birthday.  I decided to wear a really pretty dress I found at H&M a couple days before my birthday for only $15 SCORE!  My outfit was inspired by this very cute gift bag i found at Target, it is a Audrey Hephburn inspired look.  

Pink dress H&M $15
Black Blazer 5-7-9 $15
Sequin Clutch Belladazzle $25
Hello Kitty watch Kohl's GIFT
Black sequin shoes: Wholesale Fashion Shoes $10.88

The staff at Benihana's are always very pleasant, they asked what the occasion was, and when I told them it was my birthday they sat us right away.  We were at a table with 6 other people.  It was a birthday table because we were all handing the waiter our certificates, so that was kinda funny.  We arrived just in time right before happy hour was going to finish so right away I ordered a Blue Ocean Punch Bowl a drink for 2 ($10)   It was so good!  It did not taste like alcohol which I like, it was very fruity!  

If you have never been to Benihanna's I suggest you go at least once.   The fun part and this is mostly fun for kids I think is that they cook the food right in front of you.  The cook throws up his utensils, so it's like a little show they put on for you.  You do get a lot of food for your money, we ordered Filet Mignon with chicken fried rice, and some shrimp ($36) it is enough food 2. 

The waiter brought me some rainbow sherbert ice cream with a candle and they sang Happy Birthday in English & Japanese which was really nice!  Then the owner comes out and takes a picture of you and brings it out right away with a Benihanna red frame.  If you sign up online they send you your birthday certificate every year during your birthday month.  This was the best birthday I have ever had!  I am blessed with everything that God has given me.
