“ONE KIND WORD can change someone’s entire day.”

Last week I was completely stuck in my head.  Questioning everything about my life; the decisions I have made thus far and I was really just not feeling too hopeful about my future.

I was snapped out of my own thoughts when I was standing in the elevator one morning at work and a girl from another company riding the elevator complimented my shoes.

“I like your shoes.”

“Oh, thank you so much.”

Perhaps you noticed that I did not post a Found It Friday article this past Friday.  I wasn’t ignoring you all.  I promise.  Last Thursday I traveled home to go camping with my family and my family’s friends for the weekend.  I was kept quite busy, and let’s just say there would have been absolutely no way to get Wi-Fi in the woods!

So in lieu of Friday’s post , I thought I’d share a little bit of my weekend with you…

Lesson Learned

“Do not run through life so fast that you forget not only where you have been, but also where you are going.  Life is not a race, but a journey to be savored each step of the way.”

My inspiration for today’s Found It Friday post came from a picture that Steve Madden posted on Instagram.  I have an intense love affair with Steve Madden (I think anyone who follows me, has probably figured that out).  I literally want every shoe that they post in their Instagram pictures.  I tried asking them to send me all of their past, current, and new shoes for me to rock, but I never heard a response back…sooooo….I’m going to take that as a “NO.”  Haha!

Shine Bright


It seems I’m always straying off the post I have planned for you guys…This week is for a very good reason though!

This morning I received an email from one of my favorite accessory companies, gorjana & griffin. The email said they were having a 48 hour sale with 80% off of select styles of their accessories. Yes, you read correctly….80% off.

Let It Go

The snow glows white on the mountain tonight, not a footprint to be seen. A kingdom of isolation and it looks like I’m the queen.

The wind is howling like this swirling storm inside. Couldn’t keep it in, Heaven knows I tried. Don’t let them in, don’t let them see. Be the good girl you always have to be. Conceal, don’t feel, don’t let them know. Well, now they know!

Let it go, let it go! Can’t hold it back any more. Let it go, let it go! Turn away and slam the door. I don’t care what they’re going to say. Let the storm rage on. The cold never bothered me anyway.

It’s funny how some distance, makes everything seem small. And the fears that once controlled me, can’t get to me at all It’s time to see what I can do, to test the limits and break through. No right, no wrong, no rules for me. I’m free!

Let it go, let it go. I am one with the wind and sky. Let it go, let it go. You’ll never see me cry. Here I’ll stand, and here I’ll stay. Let the storm rage on.

My power flurries through the air into the ground. My soul is spiraling in frozen fractals all around And one thought crystallizes like an icy blast I’m never going back; the past is in the past!

Let it go, let it go. And I’ll rise like the break of dawn. Let it go, let it go That perfect girl is gone Here I stand, in the light of day.

Let the storm rage on! The cold never bothered me anyway…

“If someone doesn’t brighten your life, don’t take off your sunglasses just find sunshine somewhere else.”

Today’s post was inspired by one of my favorite fashion bloggers, Sazan Barzani. If you haven’t visited her blog, I suggest popping over there pronto! She’s fabulous and her site is amazing! She posts all of the details on her entire outfit and if she is wearing something that is no longer in the stores then she finds similar versions that are currently selling somewhere.

At the beginning of May, Sazan featured a pair of mirrored aviator sunglasses on her blog that I absolutely fell for. She said that hers were from BCBG Max Azria (no longer available however) but as an alternative she suggested a pair of the Ray Ban ‘Original Aviator’ 58mm Sunglasses- Mirror Lens that retail at Nordstrom for $150.
