Chillin Lake Side

I love when I find the perfect thinking spot. I like to take a moment from everyday life and relax somewhere peaceful with beautiful scenery. I make sure I pack a few good reads, a favorite drink and just enjoy the R&R.

Labor Day Style

This post is sort of late (I’m human and the weekend wore me out LOL). Well at least you know I enjoyed myself. The weather here in the PNW (Pacific Northwest)  was a little gloomy but 2 days out of the 4-day weekend were absolutely gorgeous! Of course I had 2 different outfits for Monday. When plans change, so does the outfits honey (wink).

Shopping Tips from a SALE QUEEN

I get asked all the time by people, “How do you find all of these sales?!” or “How did you get that for so cheap?!” First and foremost, I don’t like it unless it’s on sale. (Ooookkkk) Don’t get me wrong, I like to splurge on some items that I want like the next person but, in this economy things seems to be getting more and more expensive but the quality well…lets just say is not what it use to be. Yes, some of your favorite “expensive” brands are being frugal too when it comes to producing their products (the economy has an impact on them as well so don’t be fooled). I’m here to tell you that you don’t have to spend an arm and a leg at your favorite brands or for items you have on your wish list (well if you don’t want to). I want to share with you how I shop sales and get the best bargains on just about anything! *WARNING* Being a “SALE QUEEN” takes patience and perseverance. It’s a jungle out there and you have to be ready to swing from vine to vine (store to store) to scoop up stuff for great prices. Ok, I was being a little dramatic there (LOL). Just keep reading and I will have you prepared for your next shopping trip with money to spare.

A baby’s nursery can be whatever your imagination can come up with. Whether its theme is a kingdom for your little Prince or Princess to rule, a rainforest filled with exotic animals, or something cute and simple with an adorable color scheme. Check out some nursery ideas I thought would tickle your fancy!

Life Lessons according to Dr.Seuss

I’m sure we’ve all at some point during our childhood read books by Dr. Seuss. It was either Green Eggs and Ham, 1 Fish 2 Fish Red Fish Blue Fish, Hop on Pop and so many other favorites. As children we didn’t really get the meaning sometimes behind those stories. To us, they were fun to read because of the funny little rhymes and the silly looking characters. But, those stories gave us perspectives on life and not being afraid to be yourself.

Update!: Where have you been TheStylishDork?!

So I took a major hiatus (by accident) from blogging. For me to not have a full time job, I sure am pretty busy all the time LOL. (Hey you learn to laugh and be optimistic during trying times). Since I’ve moved to the Seattle area,  I have made a ton of new friends, volunteered at the humane society for a bit and just enjoying myself.  I post pretty frequently on Instagram my life adventures, but let me bring you up to speed. My whereabouts, style and whatever in between!

Thanks for hanging in there with me! I’m BAAAACCCCCCCCKKKKK!!!!
