Sad News

Hi everyone I want to say that I will be on bereavement for a few weeks. Its been a long week for me and finally yesterday I had to say goodbye to my oldest furbaby Izzy. I am to pieces and I need to collect my thoughts. Bella and I are very happy that family and friends are being so supportive. Its only her and I now. I tell people its very hard losing a family member. Furry or not they are your family what makes up your family. I am so blessed to have had her and she came to me when I was so down. I love her and will never ever forget her. I wrote about what happened bellow.

Thank you

* RIP Miss Izzabella-Ka Sawyer I wanna say thanks to all the heart felt words from everyone. I’m so attached to my two cats it’s breaking my heart that I lost one. It’s hard being alone, family four hours away each direction, working a lot and finishing two degrees. I held on as much as I could but when they did cpr on her and I was crying and just to pieces the nurses or doctors couldn’t calm me but suddenly she opened her eyes and calmed me by cleaning me. I stopped crying instantly and everyone in the room started to cry. I knew then that she was telling me that she was ok with leaving and Bella-Tomo and me would be ok without her. She was 14 my feisty little girl. I see she made the final decision again. I respected her wishes. I’m going to be ok. It will just take a while.

How to Style Yourself in 5 Steps

Fashion is subjective and style is personal, actually there is no right and wrong in styling and fashion. But what makes a style more appealing is all about knowing your personality and knowing your body so well.  These tips are just based on my experiences as a fashion blogger for almost three years. I am not an expert but I know myself more than anyone else. So I know what works for me and what not works for me.

Tip # 1 Look at The Mirror

First thing you have to do is to look at yourself at the mirror. Study yourself and your body. What are particular areas you want to flaunt and to hide? Everyone is unique in physical features, you may have a look-a-like, but still there is something makes you different from another. Do you have great legs but short torso? Then wear shorts more often. Do you want to look taller? Then wear heels. Regarding your skin tone, do you have fair skin? Then go for nautical and bright colors such as; blue, red, yellow, violet. Do you have sun kissed skin? Then wear nude and peachy colors such as; peach, gold, and ivory. Do you have pear shaped body? Then stay away from pencil dresses then go for A-line dresses. So your legs will be hidden.

Tip # 2 Invest on Basic Clothing Items

Simple as they look but you needed these clothes in your life. Simply because you these timeless pieces will be your top closet staples. The example of basic clothing necessities are plain white shirt, little black dress, white button down shirt, blazer, tank top, trousers, leggings, jeans, shorts and pencil skirt. These clothing are can be easily to pair up with any top, bottom and shoes or even bags if you want.

Tip # 3 Experiment

Don’t be afraid to experiment with clothes. Go mix and match those prints, colors, and patterns. Actually there is no rule in fashion, it is meant to be fun actually, so don’t fret or pressured in mixing and matching clothes. You have your whole closet to provide you what looks good on you. Do you want to go monochromatic look? Then wear a solid colored top and paired it with a printed one with similar color. How about print on print? Wear polka dotted blouse with an A-line floral printed skirt.

Tip #4 Document Your Style

Take a picture of yourself wearing your outfit of the day. It is not about being vain or anything. It is being expressive of your own style. Documenting your outfit tells you what your personal style is. It is okay to have internet, books, magazines or whatever as a source of outfit inspiration. But don’t copy it, like what I said earlier there are no rules in fashion. Making an outfit is fashion is depends on the person wearing it. Is he/she is comfortable in what he/she is wearing?

Tip # 5: Be Confident

Fashion is fun and you have to enjoy dressing up yourself. I believe that people can reach their highest potential with the right amount of styling and dose of personality. So definitely be confident about what you are wearing. Be confident on how you express yourself as a person through styling yourself.

A foodie review

I did a review of my favorite pickles. Okay well one of the three I love to eat. Enjoy!!

Originally submitted at Dean & DeLuca

These are the ultimate pickle lover’s pickles. Made by hand according to Great Grandma McClure’s original spicy pickle recipe, they’re layered with whole garlic cloves and dill for tangy, delicious, all-natural, old-fashioned flavor. And, boy, do they crunch! Trust us, you’re going to love these.

Great Snack

Pros: Flavorful

Best Uses: Pasta, Gifts, Dipping, Sandwiches, Salads

Describe Yourself: Foodie

Its a great snack. Not only does the taste of garlic is very even with the overall taste of the acidity pickle, its not overwhelming and great to put in salads and such. I just eat them whenever and I always buy two because guest love to taste them also.

Happy Earth Day

Hey everyone,

I am a bit behind on this blog and about two weeks behind on my other two blogs, but I want to keep things current, so I am catching up today , since it is the only free time I will have for about a week and a half. I will share the suprise with you later, and dont worry I am not stopping my blogs !!! I will tell you very soon. Okay this one is back on earth day posted via my other two blogs.

* Post from Earth Day 2015*

I don’t know how long I have been doing this , but Happy Earth Day!!!!

I am huge on helping the earth that god has blessed us to live upon.

From the green trees and grass, to the blue and different color oceans; and the life in them.

So this year I want to show some of the most beautiful places I have been too.

 Because this year, I have learned to be grateful of what I came from and you that you come to miss things like rain when you move far away. I realize it and I hope to remember this whenever I move back across country.

 One other thing, its not just the earth, its the things you use in life. Like net and shopping bags. I myself have them both and use them though this state isn’t big on it.

 Eating, planting and making sustainable food is one too. Also buying it. Because you must take into consideration that some things are not plentiful. Even certain sushi kinds!!!!!

What do you do to help the environment and help slow down Global Warming?
