Kate & William’s royal wedding style

kate and wills

I don’t know if you’ve heard, but there’s a wedding at Westminster Abbey today.  Some kid named William is marrying a pretty girl named Kate Middleton.  Oh, my bad.  By the time you read this her name will be ‘Catherine’.  Kind of like how Tom Cruise calls Katie Holmes ‘Kate’. Much more sophisticated that way. This Kate has some pretty sassy style, and I’d be lying if I said I didn’t care what she wore to her wedding.  I’m going…

What I wore Wednesday nautical

style

I’ve never done a What I wore Wednesday, but I’ve thought about it for awhile.  Usually what I wore on Wednesday isn’t super fancy, just jeans and a tee, but I was fancy yesterday.  I had to run errands so I got dressed.  Here’s what I wore. My new favorite Nautical tee from Costco.  Love. White House Black Market Skinny Jeans.  They fit like a glove. Boots from Target.  I’ve gotten MILES out of those babies. Belt: Thrifted from D.I….

Must have make-up primer

If you’re wearing any significant amount of make-up and are over the age of 17 {AHEM}, you should be wearing make-up primer. It’s basically spackle for your skin. Sounds terrible, but it’s magical. It fills in all the lines and problem areas you don’t want anyone to see, and it feels like silk. Go get some.

bad fashion week part 6

blue jeans white stitching

You guys, I don’t really know what to say about these.  I mean, aside from the fact that they’re totally Jersey Shore.  Trashy looking.  Dated.  Hideous. They feel especially small town.  I see them all over town, with rhinestones on the bum no less, and I think “Ladies please, there’s another way!”. You know what’s worse?  When dudes wear them. Stop the insanity. True Religion Jeans, Laguna Beach Jeans, Cheap Jeans, Blue Jeans, Buy Brand Jeans

Disneyland Anaheim hotel

hotel pool

In October we spent the night at the Hyatt hotel in Orange County, just a hop skip and a jump from Disneyland. Sadly we weren’t spending any time at Disneyland, we were headed to see my Rheumatologist!  Fun for everyone. I’ll tell you what, I’m totally sold on Hyatt hotels.  They’re just the right blend of fancy without being too stuffy, which isn’t an easy feat. The room was gorgeous, clean, and crisp which is what I’ve come to expect…

hot sandals for summer 2011

I can’t even wait for Summer.  Like, I’m already having fantasies about taking my kids to the local pool and reading magazines in the burning hot sun while I drink a cold beverage. It doesn’t feel really close in Utah, but it’s just around the corner. I wanted to share some of the hottest sandals out there right now for the Summer 2011.  I’ll give you a big fat hint: espadrilles are everywhere. I loved them when they were hot…

Eastern European currencies

eastern european currencies

Viktor decided early on in our trip planning that he didn’t want to be the translator for me 24/7 {see the packing list and travel guide we’ve chosen for our family trip to Europe}.  That includes translation of language, cultural customs, time zones, and currencies. Basically, Viktor wants to be the anti-tourist.  So he made up little currency cards for everyone in the family.  That way no one has to ask him to translate when we want to spend money….
