Omg So Sorry!

You guys, I have had this blog post sitting in "edit" mode since Monday night!  I was supposed to post it Tuesday morning but it slipped my mind because I've been soooooooooooo super sick.  Bronchitis + sinus infection + nasty phlegm (gross, sorry) + headaches every night = mina-too-dead-too-think-about-blog.

I apologize in advance.  So all this means, that there is only this one outfit that was worth posting.   The others were just sweatpants and a pale looking me.  Here's Mondays outfit:

silk express shirt- gabriel bros. ($10)
ann taylor skirt- thrifted ($5)
banana republic belt- thrifted ($6)
nine west shoes- sale, ($40)

I REALLY hate the way I look in these photos.  I did it for the blogs sake.  I was pretty sick in these pictures, maybe that's what it is....

Anyway!  Tomorrow is Friday. Thanks God.  Goodnight folks.  Sorry bout the lack of postings this week, but I'm sure you understand.

So, these aren't the nicest pictures that I have shared, but it's what I got.  I was too tired to continue to mess with them last night before I went to bed.  I was falling asleep at the computer.  On top of that, I am sick like everyone else. Booooooooo! 

So here are my ghetto-fab pictures with my son all up in them:

olive cardi- j crew, sale ($20)
vintage blouse- thrifted, ($1- fill a bag for $10 deal)
american eagle jeans- sale, ($28)
steve madden shoes- macys, ($40)

Have a good weekend folks!

Sharing is Caring

I have some info to share.  Your tastes buds will love me after this one.

They also have a Belgian chocolate one that I can't wait to try too.  Also, a double dark chocolate that is pretty bomb, I must say.

And in unrelated news, I wanted to share Devs pumped up kicks:

This is his 3rd pair of Dr. Seuss shoes!  I love it!  Too bad the other two don't fit anymore.  I just love chucks.

Happy hump day!

Blue Monday

Some of these pictures don't accurately depict my hair.  It's starting to get darker earlier, so getting pictures outside require the flash, and that's what teh reddish hue comes from..  Also, I suck at photoshop-ing, so I am not sure how to really edit the pic.  When do I got time to learn that ish? Pssh, I don't. Over and out!

 ny & co cardi- gab bros. ($5)
blue zara tank- thrifted, ($8)
black f21 pants- old, ($14)
old navy snakeskin sandals- sale ($11)
charming charlie bracelets- gift from my mama

Have a great week!

Identity Crisis

So, I'm back to brunette.  You know, I think most of my blog here I have been blonde, or semi blonde. I've definitely had some sort of highlights going on.  But you know, I didn't realize how long I had the blonde and I was pretty satisfied with it (except towards the end it was too blonde, highlights started to blend together, be a bit too yellow, etc.). 

While I'm still adjusting to the brunette, I really do miss the beginning of my blonde era.  The beginning is when I loved it the most.

And this was tight too:

Yeah.......I think I need to get back to the at least the first pic soon.  I"ll try to hold off as long as I can, and maybe I'll start appreciating the change for fall, but maybe it is true that blondes have more fun... : /

(The old Mina would never agree to that.)

End of Summer

Two outfits pics and two posts two days in a row?!  I'm on a roll.  Don't have much to say except that yesterday's outfit was what's below.  And also, I love the silk jacket I'm wearing that I got for $4.

silk NY & Comp jacket- gabriel brothers, ($4)
black h&m tank- sale, ($8)
blue j crew skirt- j crew sale ($21)
nine west shoes- sale, ($40)
f21 leopard belt- came in a 2 pack ($4)

I thought wearing the jacket on top of this was a cute addition to make it more casual, with a hint of safari.  I liked how it paired together.  You know, I've gotten much better at putting outfits together. Viva el blog!

Blonde or Brunette?!

Oh my goodness.  Fall is getting closer with every day.  I initially, told myself I'd be back to brunette once fall came around, but now, I'm not so sure.  I simply can't decide between the two!  If you knew me when I was brunette, you would know I was like hard-core brunette, sayin hell no to blonde.  But then gradually, my highlights started to bleed or whatever the hell happened, and I started really loving the blonde look.  I guess I like that I have two toned hair.  So, now I am completely torn.  I'm thinking bout going back to a reddish brown first......I'll figure it out eventually.

Also, it's kinda nice that I actually get hit on sometimes now, where as before I never used to (NOT IN A WHORE WAY).  But I don't know if that's because I actually look better, or is it just that blondes are looked at as easy? Who knows (clearly, this whole paragraph is a case you didn't know).

Either way, here is yesterday's outfit:

(I have alien leg in the below happens):

 h&m cardi: h&m sale, ($8)
white tank: old f21 ($13)
old target (sz 9!! jeans): hand-me-downs
target heels: sale, ($13)

Size 9 target jeans.  I know what you are thinking.  You are thinking, dang girl, that means really like size 11 cuz Target runs big, right?  But wrong, they're "junior" department, especially back in the day, actually ran like smaller than bigger.  So really, these might be more like a 7.  If they are closer to a 9, then it's ok too because they are a little big.

Anyhow, I really liked this outfit.  I got the inspiration from none other than.....Pinterest!

 And here's an added bonus:

My little man in my rain boots.  Adorbz! :)

Happy Tuesday!

Rainy Week

It has literally been raining since Sunday, maybe Monday?  Either way, non stop.  Still even raining tomorrow too.  Wow.

So, being that tomorrow will be a flooded day, I have been looking up outfit ideas for shorts and wellies.  Can't wait to wear my red Hunter boots tomorrow.  And, I mean this in the most non-whorish way, but I have to wear longer shorts for work, and I hate the way that looks.  I much prefer shorter shorts, but again, in the most non-whorish way possible.

But anyway, here is Wednesdays outfit:

black blouse: old navy ($20)
jeans: american eagle ($24)
madden girl zipper shoes: tj maxx, ($30)

So, I really needed a new pair of jeans, and I went to several different places.  Finally, something told me to check american eagle, I have never gotten jeans from there.  Actually, I have only bought like two things from there.  But, I tried on like 6 different jeans, and their "jeggings," are more like real jeans than jeggings, this is a good thing!  It is nice, thick, and stretchy denim.  With the way my body is, bigger thighs/butt and small calves, it's hard for me to find skinny jeans that look alright, and these were prefect! I am really, really happy with them.  And I'm rarely happy with new jeans, I usually hate having to break them in.   Plus, they were on sale, 40% off.  Good deal.

You should check them out.

The end.

Feels like Cozy Fall

I really love rainy, cooler days that tell me fall is right around the corner.  For some reason, the rain just makes me feel super cozy.  And even though the holiday drinks came out at starbucks, I'm not quite ready to get my pumpkin spice on....but nevertheless I'm excited for it.

I finally started my long haul on getting ish done.  I went though my whole closet, along with every other closet on the bedroom floor.  I have a huge pile of clothes to sell, and 5 bags of other clothes that I'll be dropping off at a thrift store.

I still have sooo much more organizing, getting rid of things, and other big projects.  Maybe I ought to take a staycation and take care of things, because for whatever reason, I suck at being productive on the weekends.

For now, I'm going to bed, but I will be back tomorrow morning with a post.

Hello September!

I started this post yesterday (Sept. 1st), so it's appropriate for me to have the title as that.  Don't h8.  Can you believe it's September already?!  I love fall, as I have mentioned previously a million times.  I won't bore you with it again.  Instead, I finally have an outfit to show you:

Little bunny foo foo decided to say hello to us when we first came out to do pictures:

 blue cardi- h&m ($8)
abstract dress- f21 ($17?)
steve madden shoes- macys, ($40)

Don't I look a little like a heffer?  It's because I'm the heaviest I've EVER BEEN!  For real, this is embarrassing, but I shall share to the world: just two weeks ago, I fit into a lot of my clothes, and was disappointed at my weight.  This past Sunday, I weighed myself again (on the same scale at my moms house), and I had gained ALMOST 10 POUNDS IN 2 WEEKS?!?!! I have been eating a lot better and layin off the ben n jerrys so WTF?! I need to go to the doctor and get my blood checked because I think there is something goin on.  

I have always been skinny and had a fast metabolism.  I know the older we get it slows down and ish, but no.  This isn't normal for me.  When I tell people (like my coworkers) what I weigh, or what size I wear, no one believes me.  So, at least I don't look as fat as I really am.  I gotta get it together.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy your weekend!  No hurricanes or earthquakes so far this week! Tata :)
