fact: i still care.


funny how when you create a blog you have all these ideas for it 
and think about what you would like to achieve with it 
- and for what ever reason life happens, and things change, and none of it got accomplished.
i say this with a smirk on my face because in all reality it was due to me being lazy...

 too lazy to take pictures (which i love doing)
too lazy to write (which actually comes pretty naturally if i don't over think it)
too lazy to put the amount of time in that i use to spend in trying to make this perfect

just keeping it real.

but as it says above - if you still talk about it, you still care about it.
and i do - like, a lot.

i made an industry change with my new job and i feel like i've been missing something.
missing a creative outlet, missing a style identity that i worked really hard on through school,
missing a space that brought me a lot a joy and passion
so i'm back bitches, and i'm leaving the lazy out.

  its time for a face lift, and a little filler around this blog.

FPME - I need a favor!! Hearts to Home Office


Oh wow I have not posted in quite some time... 
I am looking for some help from anyone (and everyone) who loves fashion, shopping, 
style, and the brand Free People!!





I am reach out in the hopes you may help me in trying to receive a trip back to Philly next month 
to visit the corporate Free People home office ( which is a huge dream of mine!! ).

I am seeking help through the internet because I currently work 40 hours and sadly am unable 
to see anyone lately because I have been putting 120% of my time into my job // 
on top of my boyfriend currently being away at the Rim Fire (Yosemite, California) 
so my off time is spent taking care of our dogs.



I hope you can find a little time to help me out // To me this is much more than a contest, 
it would be more of a blessing! I worked extremely hard to get my Free People job 
(persisting for over a month for even an interview) and then stepping up the past fews months 
to help manage our store in time of need, this would literally mean so much to me!!


Here are the links to the 10 pictures:
















This is the Last Week of the contest and I have found out that I am in the 11th spot 
and need to make it into the top 5!! So it is possible!!


The contest is working like this - I have 10 recent style pictures from the month of August 
and those are the only pictures that count, and I need to receive over 100 hearts on each. 
If each of us liked all 10 I would absolutely land in the top 5 without a doubt. 



If in anyway I can help promote or support any important project or dream of your's that 
comes your way please let me know!! I TRULY appreciate to support!!



You do have to create an FPME username but I stand solely behind this brand 
and know you will not receive ridiculous spam. // 
We have a little something for everyone, I promise! 
Check out our thermals, sweaters, jackets, 
and boots for fall.. super cute!

Thank you so much!!!

Life Lately.



This month has definitely been a test of my inner strength. I'm going to be honest, I've been in a bit of a downer funk. I have had to work on staying positive and hopeful. Little things like working out, getting my Starbucks, and trying new beauty stuff are my ways of adding a bit of brightness to my week. My boyfriend and I have gone on quick local adventures too, which definitely helped me to realize the bigger picture and how thankful I am to live in such a beautiful area. Something that has come out of this funk: a better idea of what I want for my future.

Time to push forward and achieve.

Share: Fur Babies.

images via my iphone & instagram: llovestoshare

Happy Friday girls. I thought I'd share some of my favorite moments with my two fur babies. Smalls & Jameson. I am a huge sucker for dogs in general.. so I'm really not surprise that I find myself snapping more pictures of these two than I do of my ootds. They kinda melt my heart.

Here is a little more about the boys.

Smalls // Chihuahua // almost 5 yr old // Likes the taste of mom's iced coffee // Is afraid of bugs // Likes to be buried under blankets.

Jameson // Saint Bernard-Lab-Mix // 15 weeks old // Likes to hold the leash on walks // Has good taste in shoes // Will sloppier on yoga pants.

They are still getting use to each other [ more like Smalls is starting to warm up to Jameson's puppiness ] but over all I couldn't ask for better nature dogs. Both are huge lovers, full of cuddles and kisses. I'm definitely a lucky lady.


Enjoy your weekend. xx

Happy Valentine's Day.



Hope you ladies have a Happy Valentine's Day this year! Whether single or celebrating with someone special I hope you indulge in some sweets, or treat yourself to a mani/pedi. I have been pretty spoiled this year by my new bf. He surprised me by taking me to a San Jose Sharks' game the other weekend - which if you know me then you know that they are my all-time favorite team. And then today I received a special delivery of roses ( This is the first time I have ever received such a delivery) - I'd be lying if I said I didn't get a little giddy about it.




Since I don't think he will read this before lunch, I'll share what I have planned for him. I decided to put together a picnic. We're talking a little appetizer, homemade caprese sandwiches, beer/champagne, and because I am more of a baker I made apple turnovers (recipe here).
Simple but kinda classy, right?! I thought so. The location is a secret, but due to the warmer week we have been having here is the bay I think it will be just right! I'm sure I'll be Instagramming away about it so if you're curious make sure to look there. I'm definitely excited about it.


Enjoy your Valentine's Day // weekend

Can We Talk: NYFW (over-load!)

(Marc by Marc Jacobs FW 2013)


(Theyskens' Theory FW 2013)


(Diane von Furstenberg FW 2013)


(Alice + Olivia FW 2013)


(Karen Walker FW 2013)


I hope you haven't been living under a rock for the past week.. BECAUSE it's NYFW!! I definitely went pin crazy today with some of my favorites that have come down the runway. Even though I'm all the way in California, I have been day-dreaming that I was there trekking it through Nemo to all the fabulous shows. It is a goal of mine to one day be there!! I'll be the chick sitting within the first two rows at Marc Jacobs/ Marc by Marc Jacobs ((on the bucketlist)) - decked out in MJ because I have become an MJ snob. I am in complete envy of all the lucky ladies that I follow on Instagram that have been attending all week. To see these gorgeous shows in person has to be Ahh.mazingggg!

I'm obsessed with all of the feminine details. Knits, Furs, Silks, Done.
I'll take all the heels and boots. One of each bag. Karen Walker sunnies, and all the outerwear. 
Fall is definitely my favorite season, and I would have no problem going broke to fill my closet up.

Did you have a favorite show?! Were you one of the lucky one's to be there?!
If so, can we be BFFs like now.

Happy Tuesday. xx
