Long Time No See...

It's been a while since I've posted to the blog.  My sincere apologies and I have no real excuses except for life taking over.  The good news is I do have some exciting things coming up ahead that I will most definitely be sharing with my Divas.  Look out for event footage, product reviews, as well as footage of me trying some products for the first time!  Meanwhile, I'm going to give you all a peek into what I've been up to over the last month or so.  Maybe some of it will interest and inspire you.  Let me know what you all have been up to also--I'd love to hear!  For now...ciao!

Sweet treats were required for my daughter's 12th birthday.  She thinks her birthday is a national holiday and for the 12th year I pulled it off without a hitch.  Many thanks to Sugar Coated STL for the sparkly, sweet treats!  They were delicious and they are all GONE!

As a part of my daughter's pre-birthday festivities, I absolutely had to get tickets to Bring It! Live.  The show exceeded my expectations.  It was lively and fun and I think I may have had more fun than the girls did.  Hey...A 40+ mama still has the right to kick it!  LOL!

Every year my daughter and I go to our community's annual fireworks show, but over the past few years, she's left me sitting alone while she hangs out with her friends.  It's cool though, my Mango-rita and I just sat back and enjoyed the view.  Tee hee hee...  Sandals from JustFab and Gucci tote was a gift from a generous friend.

My summer started with me making a final push to complete my daughter's room renovation.  The pic above is a snapshot of the beginning.  It took me about a year to buy everything that was needed to complete it.  She is STILL over the moon about her new room!  Headboard from Overstock, nightstand from Target and picture from At Home.

I started reading this book a few days ago, but I actually started seeing excerpts of it on Instagram when I started following a user named r.h.sin.  It's a book of poetry about love, pain and the emotions that come with it and I am LOVING it!

I know you all have seen this picture in a prior post, but in between everything I've been doing, I've also been making time to date.  Dating is so much more fun than it was say 20 years ago!  My shoes are by Marc Fischer and dress by Rachel Roy.
