the week in photos.

this is the week we say goodbye to october.

hello to november.

and pray for the east coast.

it’s so hard to believe our first “us place” was in the midst of the wrath.

all the photos on the left are mine. from our jersey city apartment.

then & now





count your blessings.

now onto ‘the week in photos’ …[tryin’ out a new style]

  1. when in doubt – rock black & white. @ the rehearsal dinner in my kardashian kollection polka dot blazer. with a black & white mani.
  2. possible fashion faux pas? but I couldn’t choose. a night out on the town calls for leopard print {steve madden wedges} AND snake skin {white coach bag}.
  3. scrumptious dinner @ japonais. hot rock filet mignon!
  4. did I mention I caught the bouquet?!?!?! :)
  5. taco tuesday. w/ [J].
  6. drinking beer out of a frosty mason jar. I think red hook is going for the christmas look.
  7. I finally got my target beauty bag in the mail. {I love free samples}. how did target know I’m a leopard fan?

tonight is the night – I’ve finally planned my october date [whoops] for [J] & I. a recap will be up on monday. assuming it goes well.

have a great weekend all.

a sunday story.

sundays are for sleeping in.

so, I slept in. and proceeded to wake up starving. with panera on the brain.

I got up. partially engaged in my morning routine [teeth brush, face wash, etc]. I then stopped thinking about my appearance and only about bagels. headband on, yoga pants, tank with bra straps exposed, no make-up ..I ventured out in public. looking like this:

[warning: every single window was down, but my hair was like that without wind].

I saw my reflection in the dunkin donuts drive thru window [our iced coffee stop] and was honestly frightened ..and shocked.

[J]’s responses:

“you look like a crazy lady”.

and ..

“you actually look like you just got done working out. which you definitely did not, unless you count getting out of bed”.

welp, these are the times when I feel for celebrities. you have to get fully ready before your sunday morning bagel run OR suffer the consequence [your “fresh out of bed” look splashed on the front page of magazines]. ouch!!

if I was a celebrity, this would be in US Weekly today:

fashion faux pas: was it worth it?

duh, it was panera :)

thank goodness for not running into a single person I knew that morning. for not taking my shades off once. and for not being a celebrity.

[the day did involve a shower. no need to worry. it just took place AFTER my coffee & bagel].

happy monday.
and cheers to being shameless :)
