{ my.so.called.life }

this weekend was a bit on the mellow side. my darling j went out of town so me and the pup decided to take a road trip to see the family. we spent most of the weekend indoors avoiding the heat and working on lots of new goodies for the blog only venturing out for the necessities .


iced jasmine green tea is my drink of choice during the spring and summer months (well all of the time really) not only is green tea a powerful antioxidant, it gives you energy, boosts your immune system, and promotes healthy weight loss . i prefer jasmine green over straight green because it's tastier and much more refreshing . 


a fresh new neon pink pedicure (courtesy of mom) . along with an adorable pair of jelly sandals i found during a recent trip to mexico . while shopping this weekend i found an almost identical pair here in the us by michael kors . side note : for those of you who don't know , gel polish is amazing ! it is literally smudge/chip/crack proof , and lasts for weeks . 


my favorite little man , 'd' . we spent a good part of the weekend hanging out and talking fashion, and we both concluded this blog just wouldn't be the same without his occasional input on whats.cool.for.kids .


plaid hat - h&m
denim jeans - osh kosh
boy genius tee - was & willy
braided flip flops - baby gap


i had brief encounters with the mall a couple times different times over the course of this weekend , friday because the body shop had an insane 4/20 sale that i could not miss (and by insane , let's just say i got $100 worth of product for $30) . not far from the body shop was godiva (which my mom is an absolute fan of - without question she could single handedly keep them in business) , so we made a quick stop there as well. although i'm not a fan of chocolate i did end up making a purchase supporting a charity i've followed in the past . and then sunday i ended up back at the mall again , this time it was to recycle my old makeup containers at the origins earth day event which also proved to be the perfect time to redeem my victorias secret 'secret rewards' card. here is a breakdown of what i got where.

godiva : limited edition 'lillian feed 10' bag . hand crafted by women liberia so no two bags are the same  , and the price of the bag will provide 10 school meals for children . learn more about the feed project here .

origins : 'a perfect world' moisturizer . exfoliating brush

h&m : beaded collar . bracelets . lace trimmed tanks . metal hair ties

victorias secret : 
neon pink lace undies . lace trimmed lounge pants

*lace seemed to be the theme of this weekends shopping adventures . this was not intentional . 

it's late , i meant to post this hours ago , and j has returned home from his travels (with a surprise in tow - a surprise that's absolutely fabulous that i'm looking very forward to sharing) so now it is time i bid you adieu .
