i live in nyc, love pedicures but not manicures, will not wear heels above 2 inches but can appreciate those who do, will never be accused of being a fashionista and will remain loyal to my uniform of sorts.
this is my virtual scrapbook of things i love, interest me with the occasional personal thoughts thrown in.
also, do not expect correct grammar & punctuation here, we spend enough time doing that elsewhere!
i’ve been looking to add a solid dress or two to my wardrobe that i can put on in a moments notice that i know will look good & is effortless [tall order] … i’m batting a zero, need to get to a actual store and do a marathon session of trying on dresses only
anyway this victoria beckham dress would be welcomed into my closet, sadly the price tag would not [ha!]
p.s. - i’m in what feels like my millionth week of delivering the same robotic, mind numbing training … i can’t seem to reconcile my feelings between being appreciative of having a flexible job but simultaneously having one that makes me want to jab my eyeballs with a rusted nail [dramatic much?]
i had a team meeting today and asked for help/coverage for ONE night when we’re training the Asia region - you see i just came off doing a asia week (last week) and trained tues/wed this week, ancillary training next week, full week of training feb 3rd during US time zone and have asia again week of feb 10th … working the night shift turns me inside out/upside down & w/ a toddler it just adds to the madness …
so other members of the team im’d my boss with ‘well, isn’t that what she was hired to do?’ … and with that, shows exactly how much empathy they have to spare …
ever since i saw this post on i love your style [that’s gucci westman’s hand], i’ve been googling the heck out of signet rings. but not sure how much i want to spend on something i may not end up wearing all the time.
i think it would be a nice addition to my simple wedding band i wear every day.
right now 2014 seems a bit of a dud for me. none of the plans i had in my mind in 2013 panned out (for career & family). of course this could just all be in the way things are supposed to work out but the planner in me could use some hints of things to come …
but bright side, i’m physically stronger thanks to pure barre
i seriously never thought i’d a) wake up 5:15am on purpose to get to the studio b) see results so quickly
my contract is up on march and i’m trying figure out how i’ll transition back to being a stay-at-home mom (if that is what works out in the end)? it’s a slippery line but i think i need to work in some capacity if not for financial reasons but also to keep my mind engaged …
let’s see how this all works out … in the meantime, i have a few things to look forward to today, facial/eyebrow wax (it’s been months, ugh) and book/supper/vino club tonight … and it’s friday!
