Gold peep toe pumps!

One of my close friends - asked for help in finding a cute gold peep toe for this weekend! So of course I got on it right away.

And I fell in love with these two metallics! One is the light gold and the other is more of a copper but can pass as a "burnt" gold, if you may.

What do you think?

I love, do you? 


Want them? You just have gotta have them? Comment me, I will tell you where you can get your own pair!

KONY 2012

This is not a fashion or beauty tip. It is WAY more important than that. It is KONY 2012.

For my son. For his future, for his world. I am deeply touched by this video.

This is a 30m long video that everyone single one of us should be watching. THIS is the reason Facebook has become what it is today. For this exact reason, to spread THIS word. Please take 30 minutes to watch this video and understand KONY 2012. This video has truly truly changed my day, my thoughts, my life. The way I want to live. The world and life I want my son to live in. I feel so foolish complaining about insignificant things, wanting more than I have... or simply always wanting more.

This is probably and most likely THE SINGLE most touching video I have ever watched. No matter how "not emotional" you are this will touch your heart. This is for my son Ben. Because I couldn't imagine him growing up in a world with NO JUSTICE, NO INNOCENCE, NO CHILDHOOD.

I strive every day as do all parents to be a great human being for him. Way too often I've taken my blessed life for granted. And yes a quote here and there, a beautiful Sunday with my family, may make me realize, but this will make us ALL realize - we are truly blessed, no matter our income or status or race... as Americans we are blessed to have the freedom and lives we have.

Well now I want to do something about this, I'll start by sharing this video. Please watch it and do something about it. Not for you... but for our children.

"Bomb style on a budget, her AND the kid", a MODGBLOG post.

 Yea, she'd drink with me... here is what I mean.

One of my guilty pleasures is spending time reading my favorite blog: modgblog. I've been reading it for about 2 years now and every single time I read a new post I literally L O L. She is hilarious and talks about the most "realest" things on being a mom (when I started reading she had just found out she was preggo) being a woman, shoes, vaginas, the big H word, her cats and of course being married to B.

Over the course of time, she's become a celebrity in the blog world, even has a book deal in the works now. This is a must read for any woman, mom or not, married or not, I guarantee you will L O L just like me at her posts. She is just one of us... but funny-er.

And now I am on her blog page :) Check it out!


PS: MODG mean Martinis or Diaper Genies. And you say it all together, don't spell it out. Ha.
