Getting Ready For The Sunshine

I've noticed lately while driving into work, I've had to shade my eyes due to the sunshine.  The car sunshade rarely helps me, due to my height.  I instantly remember, I broke my shades, my favorite shades last year and never replaced them.  Each day that I have to use my hand, I say to myself, "you have got to get another pair of sungalssess!".

Well, today, I did just that, I saw a picture of Rihanna wearing a pair of Oversized Butterfly shades and I thought they looked great...different and I wanted a pair.  I purchased the pair below.  They look like they will be "fun" to wear.

While searching the internet, a lovely pair by Prada came the top of the search (probably the ones Rihanna was sporting). Honestly, I don't/won't invest that much into a pair of sunglasses because more than likely they will be broken or lost.  I have to get better about that.  I have a hard enough time keeping up with my prescription glasses(I paid $$$$ for) and umm I've had to have those repaired as well (think I need to go back to the hard case vs. soft case).

If you're in need of a new pair of sunglassess, click on the banner on the side and see if you find a pair you like.

 Tell me, what's your limit (if you have one) in purchasing sunglassess?

A Kick In The Butt Is What I Needed

It took Mica to kick challenge me to start sewing again.  I have numerous patterns and a large stash of fabric, but no finish projects.  It's been awhile since I've sewed myself anything, yet I find myself still purchasing patterns and fabric (CraZy...I know). 

So, this past weekend, I went through some of my patterns and chose Simplicity 5556 because I am in desparate need of tops and I wanted something easy to break the ice.  Like Mica, I'm going to take it one step at a time.  I will post when completed.

Expand Your Closet Hanging Space

How I yearn for a walk-in closet such as Kimora Lee Simmons.  To be able to walk-in, let alone have a chaise lounge  in there to lay back and admire all of my beautiful things would be fabulous.  *blinks* My reality is I have a walk-in closet and that's about it.  No room for a chaise lounge, heck not even a chair...barely my stool.  Sadly, no room for all of my beautiful things.  I have a small walk-in closet and there is a need for more space...hanging space.

While talking with a girlfriend about needing more closet space, she  told me about closet hanging space extenders.  I was on the search for this gadget...with no luck.  I couldn't find any in the local stores.  I went to my handy dandy (, those with kids smiled) internet and viola!  The Container Store had just what I was searching for.  By no means, does this gadget make me feel like I'm in Kimora's closet, but I am happy when I'm in there now.

If you're like me and could use a little more hanging space, get you one or some.  Use code RSAPR30 for 20% discount.
