Talk about a media frenzy!
Is anyone else surprised that Chelsea Clinton's upcoming nuptials is getting so much attention. It seems as if no one even cared when that Bush girl got married.

I hate to brag.... BUT..

I found this great bag at the Limited a few days ago. I really have to get a new camera because this picture does it NO justice at all.
I tried to find a pic on their web site but there wasn't one... probably because it was a final sale item for only $16.99
Yep. You can be jealous!!! Ha!

Check out the new condo of Alicia Keys and her new fiance Swizz Beatz. Nice.
I tried to be lazy today and NOT go to the gym. But then I started to feel I decided to make use of my FitTV.

I did 30 min of Masala Bhangra and another 20 min of Power Circuit Abs with Jackie Warner.
Ouch!!! Usually my abs don't hurt until the next day... ugh, no. My abs hurt at this very moment. But I think this is supposed to be a good thing. Ouch!!!!

Oh well, whatever it takes to get me in my Labor Day bathing suit;)

I'm hearing REALLY good things about Angelina Jolie's new movie 'Salt'. I will admit, I had no interest in seeing the movie. Call me silly, but I'm Team Anniston.

But I guess I will grow up a bit and check it out this week. Besides, it's not opening weekend anymore anyway.

Closet Freak: Whitney Port

This is the dressing room/closet of fashion designer Whitney Port. It makes me love her even more. I've been toying with using my guest room as a dressing room/office///whatever I want it to be. She even personalized it with photos and her favorite magazines. Cute==Go Whitney!

My first lady is better than yours!

Unit M: And then there was light

I went back to Walmart (my favorite place)--yeah right! But I did find these great lamps. $25 each for the lamp..
$20 for the shade. new bedroom lamps for under 100 bucks!
I will share my total bedroom makeover soon. Stay tuned...



I try to be one of those people who buy things and get rid of things at the same time... I "try."

I got the idea from Lady O last year. She said that you should keep a box in the closet or somewhere nearby. That way when you buy something new, you can find something not so new, or something that you haven't worn all season and donate it.

But have you ever donated something by accident.

Well, I did. I had this great men's pin stripped button down shirt that I think is now in the hands of the Goodwill...and I am not a happy camper.
It looked A LOT like this one....
I wanted to pair it with my cut-off jean shorts and some cute wedge sandals. So much for that!


I found it! I found it! It was in a drawer that it shouldn't have been in.

Good morning blog world!!! It's the weekend and what better way to give it a jump start than to head to the salon--I'm being phececious.
Hopefully this won't be an all day process. I have things to do and rest to get;)

Did I mention that Nordstrom is having its anniversary sale?

About to do some damage...

Today I hit a bit of a snag with my entreprenuer endeavor. The biggest client I was looking to book.... backed out.

I'm not going to stress about it. However, it did piss me off especially since we were going to ink the deal in two weeks.

I'm not back to square one but I am back to looking at my current job in a different perspective.


I should have expected it. Things were too perfect and this deal just sort of landed in my lap.

What's the saying? When one door closes, another one opens.

I guess....

Waiting on door number 2.

I would jack this woman for these shoes. Seriously. They scream Elise!

I am on a bit of a LOVE high today.
The past few months have been a bit rough. But I've always known that the honeymoon wouldn't last forever..... But the love does.
I'm the last person to give relationship advice but I will say that if you believe in what you have, fight for it.... AND be patient--that's the hard part (well, for me it is).
It's work.
But it's work that I don't mind doing.
xoxoxoxoxox Elise
I want to love Free People. I really do. But how can one justify paying $100 for a tshirt. Some are even $200. Do you know what kind of shoes I can buy for $200.

Come on Free People. Come on.

30 is on the way....

The closer I get to 30, the more I realize that their are certain things that I simply NEED in my life.

  • my glasses or contacts

  • my Flinstone vitamins

  • at least 6 hours of sleep

  • a little peace and quiet everyday

These are things I could get away without for a day or two. Not anymore. They are now necessities. lol. This aging thing is a mess..... a HOT mess.
Victoria's Secret has leather leggings. Are you bold enough? $200 could land you a pair.

Monday is for meatloaf .... and Tuesday is for leftovers.
I made the BOMB meatloaf yesterday. It was a super simple recipe which turned out great!

I'm convinced you can't go wrong with Lipton Onion Soup mix.

The First Lady is headed to the Gulf Coast this month to survey the damage from the oil spill. BP is rapidly approaching the 100 day mark. I love our first couple but I think there has been enough surveying, it's time for the federal government to intervene.

This man-made disaster is interfering with the livelihood of these people. Screw BP, make them pay the bill once we fix the problem.
I'm trying to figure out what's next for my life.

I've always known that I wanted to be my own boss...but with that comes A LOT of work.

But I think I'm ready. Why the heck not?!!

But first thing is first... my MBA... oh Lord. I don't want to do it but I know it's a must.

Let the research begin....

Craving a boyfriend watch.. Michael Kors

About that LOVE bug....

If I haven't learned anything in my 29 years, I know one thing: Love is a crazy, crazy thing.

First of all, it comes into your life at THE MOST unexpected time. And then it pounces on you.

Later, just when you start to get comfortable with the joys of being in love, love makes you completely uncomfortable. It makes you weary, it tests you and sometimes it makes you VERY angry.

Then all of a sudden, when you are having those second thoughts about it, love soothes. It eases your pain... and let's you know that it never left.

Gotta love, Love.

Coffee Table Find

I was at Ross a couple of weeks ago and I found this excellent book. It's basically a photo album of the First Lady's fashions.

I love, love, love the book at the interviews with some of Mrs. O's designers.

Not sure why is was on clearance at Ross for $4.99 ..... but I'm glad it was.
There's nothing like a statement necklace to zhush up an outfit.

Happy Independence Day-Weekend

Be safe blog world. See ya later.

well it's about time!!!! this is the dress i ordered from FOREVER 21 last week. it was an impulse buy...but a cheap one at only $13.50 and with tax and shipping, it was still under 20 bucks.
i didn't notice there is a pocket on the dress (me no likely). so i wil just throw a my cute fitted bebe top over it instead. i tried it on and it's super cute.
i spend sooooooo much money on clothes and accessories, it's always nice to find a cheap find.

Closet Freak: A shoe shelf....or two

one day, one day
I love this couch!
And the chandelier isn't too bad either.
when was the last time you colored? it's great therapy for adults!


fab girl kelly roland recently showed off a sneak peak of the clothes that hang in her closet...
i think she has impeccable taste
not to mention how gorgeous she is. i've always thought she was the prettiest member of destiny's child.
great skin...

Another early morning workout for me. Not to say that I'm all that thrilled about it. What is it about exercise? Some people wake up and lace up their sneakers. It's almost like brushing their teeth... it's just something that they know they have to do.

But there are those of us who NOT MATTER WHAT---HATE---to exercise.
That's me.
I hate it.

But I love food.

Last night I had a gourmet 4 cheese burger from Village Tavern and a side of asparagus (which I'm convinced were drizzled with butter, not olive oil).

So because of my uncanny infatuation with great restaurants and even better food, I must exercise or else I would be as big as a house.

Oh well.
