KLA Dressy Outfit

KLA Dressy Outfit by lteevens featuring genuine leather belts

This outfit is for my aunt who is going to a dinner honoring my grandpa this December in Chicago...Kirtie and I will wear something a little more sassy but for KLA...this is slightly out of her comfort zone...which we LOVE!  thoughts?

Sorry that I've been MIA this week...it was for two reasons:
1. I was still recovering late Sunday night and Monday from the tailgate party and had no energy or brain power to write a coherent blog post.
2. I have been traveling for work and have been stuck in random hotels/health & fitness clubs in NYC and CT with no good wifi!

I'm finally getting a chance to sit down and post something semi-coherent (it's been a long week already)...my day just got a little better because of a glass of wine and the fact that I am at my final destination (for now).  This morning I woke up at 6am (early for this chick) and drove 45 min to work out with bossy-poo at one of the healthclubs we're visiting.  After finishing a workout and grabbing starbucks (another highlight) I showered (in my 3rd public shower since Sunday) and got ready for my 11:30 mtg with their marketing team....at 10am.

I waited in their cafe until approximately 12:15pm when I finally looked pathetic enough for someone to come up and ask if I needed anything!!!!  Um, yes, I need the people I'm supposed to meet with and a stiff drink ASAP.  This then leads to a long boring tour of the club, followed by a session of "brainstorming" and finally meeting with an awesome marketing woman who brought me to a different club and showed me some helpful things!  It's now 4:45pm and I'm waiting outside for my "ride" (aka the person who forgot about me this am) who shows up at 5:15pm and drops me off at the hotel where I'm expecting to check in and take a snooze! 
Not so fast. 
The woman at the front desk of the hotel in wherever the hell I am in NY State can't speak english and tells me that she has already handed out the keys to my room and cannot give me one.  So here I am, sitting in the bar of a courtyard marriot swigging wine and blogging.  Yup...sweet Humpday for me.

Tailgate Success!

The tailgate was a huge success...which I why I can't possibly write any more than this in my current exhausted state.

More to come later...oh and BTW...Dartmouth won BIG 37-0 big :)

tailgate prep is on...

so tailgate prep 2K11 is definitely on.  I spent my evening preparing various baked goods (rice krispie treats and chocolate chip brownies)....I also made numerous lists of what we have, what we are on schedule to have and what we need.

Hubby is probably about to kill me...he got home from hunting this morning and had a to-do list already!

Super pumped for this party though...now I just need to decide what to wear!!!!! Thanks for all the comments...they are MUCH appreciated!

And now for something to make y'all laugh:
God I love Pinterest...there should be a limit for how long you can spend on that site...I was perusing for WAY too long.

Happy Hump Day...XO

too good to be true

All my favorites in one place!  Nars has done it again...check this out- it has all their top-selling blushes* in one container

*Just a disclaimer...I am addicted to blush...I use it when I don't feel like putting makeup on but know that I probably should.  It just makes you look a little more awake and like you put a little bit of time into getting ready (something I need to work on...I'm a wake up last minute and head out the door kind of girl)!

This set contains:

- Cheek Color in Hungry Heart (gold ivory), 

-Super Orgasm (peachy pink with gold glitter)..a fav

-Desire (cotton candy pink)

-Casino (dark brown with golden shimmer)

-Orgasm (peachy pink with golden shimmer)...another fav

-Sin (berry with gold shimmer)

best part about it...Sephora has it on sale for $65 Sweet!

Friday Fancies

Fall!  Some days I wished I lived somewhere where you can really fashion it up...this is an outfit I'd love to sport someday....but probably not up here in NH.

So I realized that this dress may actually look like a top (good call whit)...but it is indeed a dress.  I wanted to show a luxury side of dressing for fall and felt that this dress along with fur vest, chunky accessories and booties fit the bill.  The neutral color palate is spiced up with a shiny red lip!  I think that my overall favorite thing about this outfit is a tie between the vest and the mini-antler brooch that's hiding on the vest.  Anything with antlers makes me think of hubby and I thought it was fun to incorporate something like that into this outfit!

Dressy Fall

So What Wednesday Returns!

Okay, so I am on Day 3 of this "diet" and am a little cranky about it.  I should have thought about what week I started this thing...if you know what I mean.  I'm struggling because I want to eat everything in sight (and out of sight for that matter...I know there's candy in those cupboards).  So here goes my "so whats"

1. So what if I eat a million pieces of sugarless gum...I'm trying to trick myself into thinking I'm not hungry
2. So what if those pics of skinny girls and athletic girls aren't motivating me...I seem to be a lost cause today
3. So what if I go under my desk and take a nap...I'm alone in my office all week
4. So what if I want to tell all my co-workers (excluding my favs) to shut up when they come into my office to ask me for something.  I don't actually do it...although today I am tempted...
5. So what if all I can think about is food...that's what a diet is supposed to do to you right?  Make you think about all the things you can't have!

I believe that's all I have for you today folks...see you back here later XO

Diet 0, Lindsay 0

so far so good with the "diet".  I use the quotation marks because I'm only aiming to lose a few pounds...my real goal is to just step up the nutrition and learn to cut back on the sugar (read: candy).

I had a minor issue when i consulted my new App: Lose it (see pic below) and realized that I wasn't eating enough...Love that problem!

I'm using this app in place of a food diary because it has all the nutritional info already in it for most food...major plus!

Of course there is an end goal to this little project...I want to look leaner and feel better (aka not tired all day)...oh, and there's this little motivation right here:

long and lean...and blonde (always a bonus)...thanks Pinterest

Oh and these are good inspiration pics as well:  Happy Monday All! XO

It's time for pumpkins! I bough our first two of the season this afternoon from a farm stand and am waiting for some inspiration to hit me on how to decorate them...here are some ideas that I thought were cute:

Has anyone decorated (or carved) their pumpkins yet? I want to see some pics!!!!

Hope everyone had a fab weekend...XOX

Currently Coveting

Anything and everything by House of Harlow 1960

The shapes are fun and different...and I love how you can layer them or wear them alone!
I just purchased this in honor of hubby being out every morning and evening for hunting season:
Oh, and I'm totally digging NicRic's hair and makeup in all of those photos (although I can't say how the eyeliner would go over here in NH)
Happy Tuesday Peeps! XO
