WIWW: Teal Stripes

Hey Loves!
Happy Hump-day!
WOO HOO *cues the streamers & confetti*
I’m super pumped to make it to the middle of the week!  There was a nice size snow storm in MN last night -_- (bleh). 
I woke up this morning super early and still sat in traffic for a good hour on the way to work! 
But I still thank God, I am not in a ditch somewhere!

Anywho, I was able to bust out an outfit from yesterday! 
I got a lot of compliments on this top at work yesterday. 
Can you tell how much I am loving this bag I stole borrowed from mi madre?

Teal striped blouse – Heartbreakers
Dark Denim Jeans – Gap
Brown Zip Boots – Len Druskin
Fave Teal Necklace – Seen here  - I think I got this from F21

It’s nice to get out of the snow...
Here's a pic that my sis took:
However, it is melting.. o.O
Oh well, That's what I get for living in MN..

I also found out this week my homework load won’t be as bad, 
so I’m ecstatic! 
I can catch up with some of your blogs, and my fave TV shows!! 
(The Bachelor, Bad Girls Club, The Game, Khloe and Lamar..etc) 
As you can tell I’m a reality TV maniac. I really need to stop watching, yet its so entertaining.

So, are you a closet reality TV junkie? 
What are some of your TV guilty pleasures?? 
Do tell!

Have a great day!

What I'm Wearing Wednesday

Happy Hump Day! 
I hope your Valentine's day was great to all you love birds out there! :)

Mine was fantastic. Me and Adrian don't usually do too much just because we don't really like Vday, it puts pressure on both of us to go out and do some amazingly romantic act for each other. 
I personally, am not a romantic. It's the small things that count...

Pink polka dot blouse - Len Druskin
Cardigan - Heartbreakers
Denim Jeans - I really can't remember
Black bow flats - Len Druskin

I made him dinner, he bought me yellow roses and a bottle of our fave sparkling Moscato. (YESS!!)

 Overall it was a success! :)

And DON'T FORGET to enter my Valentine's Day Giveaway

Have a great day! :)

I absolutely adored Taylor Swift's red carpet look - a nude silk mermaid gown by Zuhair Murad

and finally you are here :)
Black leather jacket - Len Druskin
Grey studded shirt/dress - TJ Maxx

This week has been a super busy one, and I love it. I'm finding out so many cool things about the business at the new job, as well as putting in hard work for school. Some people call me crazy, but 
I'm so determined this year to make things happen!

Today, is a lazy day. I am lounging and going to do some cooking later, but for the most part I will enjoy doing absolutely nothing.

And although there is no baby blue in my outfit.. there is plenty of it below..
Beyonce and daughter, baby Blue Ivy. 
 Pretty girl...
She looks so sweet :)

Hope this little sweetie brings a smile to your day! :)
