These Boots Were Made For Walking

I am seriously crushing on these boots and trying to justify the price....yikes Tory Burch!  My bestie and I have been talking about how fabulous they are and that perhaps we will have to be twinsies again this fall.  We have this weird ESP(maybe we were separated at birth?!?) and buy the same things and usually wear them when we see each other, it's weird....we don't even live in the same town.  This over the knee boot is soooo on trend and the absolute perfect to buy or not to buy?!?!?!?!?  

Regardless, go check out Tory Burch and her Labor Day Deal

Birthday Wknd Review

Beautiful Figure 8 Island 

My cute parents....birthday girl!

The most delicious raspberry cake from One Belle Bakery, a definite must if you are in the Wilmington area!!!

A little blurry, but some of my mom's besties and I at the yacht club for her birthday dinner party!

Everyone came to our house for cocktails before dinner and we gave everyone flash tattoos, whether they wanted them or not....even the guys!  Aren't they beautiful?!??!

Mama and I....not the best pic, a little blurry....but we were too busy socializing!

Exhausted, but super happy to be in my happy spot on the back deck with the breeze blowing!

A New Fragrance

I'll admit it, I'm a beauty addict.  I love all products, especially perfume.  When my friend Sarah came to visit, she spritzed this new perfume on in my car before I dropped her off at the airport....someone wanted to smell delish for Mr. Fixer.  It smelled so fab, I decided to order the roll on from Sephora, at $22.00 it was the perfect way to add to my collection without breaking the bank.  With a description of sensual, edgy and mysterious, who wouldn't want to try this feisty perfume?!?!?  Elizabeth and James aka Mary-Kate and Ashley designed the chic perfume makes it that much more fashionable!  I love it and urge you to take a whiff of it the next time you're in Sephora or Nordstrom!

Just Shake It

Soooo Taylor Swift released her single, "Shake It Off" and honestly I couldn't be more pumped about this song!  I love the beat, the lyrics, pretty much the whole thing.  I literally jammed out-aka sang at the top of my lungs and danced in my car on the drive down to the beach last night.....BOOM if you got to witness that gem, your welcome!  I hope you have a fabulous weekend!  I'm at the beach celebrating Mama Jill's birthday, which means an extravagant dinner party that Papa Murray decided to throw, that I have organized, so cheers to shaking it all weekend long!

Trend Event

Last night, some friends and I headed to Neiman Marcus for the fall trend event and fashion show.  It was a wonderful opportunity to take a sneak peak at the fall trends...lots of gray and green with punches of burgundy.  There were also lots of mixed media pieces (aka leather panels mixed with a knit).  I found some fab pieces to put on my most wanted list!  It was a nice reprieve from a normal Wednesday night, who doesn't love cocktails and fashion?!?!

These were delicious jewel shaped chocolates that were to die for!

Girlies before the fashion show!

One of my favorite outfits-isn't that Burberry jacket to die for?!?!?

Mojitos are always refreshing!

This green color was everywhere and this dress has an awesome cutout detail in the back.

I ended the night finding a new love.....this beaut is now on my wish list.  If a few goals of mine come true, she will be mine!

P.S.  one should never venture into the Chanel boutique....always dangerous!

Mama Jill's Birthday

It's Mama Jill's aka the Queens (legit, people call her this) birthday today!  I can't wait to spend a long weekend celebrating the one and only Mama Jill as she is referred to by all (old and young and in between peeps all call her this).  She is my best friend (yes, we are that annoying mother-daughter duo who happen to LOVE spending time together), the person who understands me best, the lady who taught me to cook and clean like a champ and who reared me to be the person I am today.  I love you mama, you are my soul sister and voice of reason that I constantly reach for whether in person or through a phone call.  Have a fabulous birthday pretty lady!

Friday night, two of my friends and I went to Whole Foods for a hands-on cooking class.  It was all revolved around chocolate and was absolutely delicious and such a fun experience.  They offer a variety of classes with different themes, I am dying to take a pastry class!  For $55 we made and ate the delish food, had lots of wine and a chocolate martini, a pretty fab deal if you ask me!  They taught us a variety of handy tricks, such as the proper way to use a knife for chopping and dicing and how to properly juice a lemon.  I highly recommend checking it out if there is a Whole Foods near you!

A Surprise Launch....

To say I am giddy with excitement is an understatement.  Kate Spade has announced that they will launch a swimwear line this November....that's right peeps THIS NOVEMBER, as in this year!!!  The swimsuits will be very retro and feminine with prices between $120-$200 and around 70 styles.  I am already pining away for this little doll-face below, I definitely need this for my trip to the Cayman Islands after Christmas!!!

That bow is what completely sold me!!!  It just makes my heart go boom boom!
