It's Friday!!

Well Hello Friday, nice to see you again!
I have the day off to sit back, relax and enjoy Isaac's downpour. If I was at work, I would be hating it...but an occasional rainy day at home relaxing is okay with me.

Today I am linking up with Lindsey for Friday's Favorites

{Favorite New Lipstick Color}

One of my first bright hue purchases (you must remember, I usually do a nude / light pink lip) This one is a gorgeous coral hue
{Favorite Closet Find I Forgot I Had}
Madden Girl Leopard Flats. Find them here

{Favorite Recent Pinterest Pins}

{Favorite I'd Cap That Picture}

Poor Bentley. This is too funny though!

{Favorite Weekend Plans} 

Watching the Arkansas Razorbacks game, of course :)

Now it's time for Friday's Letters

Dear Razorback Football... SO GLAD YOU ARE HERE!! I'm excited to be in my families sky box "The Taj Mahog" tomorrow to get the season kicked off... always, always, always a good time!  Dear Brad... I am glad I usually get home before you do so you don't see all the packages that are often delivered to me. Sorry...actually I'm not sorry, these purchases make me happy. Dear 3 day weekends... I love having you around, I wish it was more frequently. Dear Online Boutiqes...We have a love / hate relationship. Maybe I should open my own boutique. Actually, that would be a dream come true.

That my friends is called...

I can definitely relate to this photo right now...except I am not a big champagne drinker. Let's change that to wine or vodka. Now that we cleared that up.... I think I will pour me a glass of wine and blog a little.

My week started off GREAT. I started off the week positive, I had a huge diamond sale at work which means an uh-mazing commission check, I got a few online shipments in the mail, I made a few more purchases {in case you were wondering, shopping lifts my mood}...Then Tuesday comes...I get to work and one of my co-workers had to ruin my day.

Let's discuss this little thing called Karma

I am a firm believer in treating people the way you want to be treated. I always try to be fair, especially when it comes to the people I have to spend a lot of time with.... such as my co-workers. But when you try to steal money from me that I rightfully earned.... you've got another thing coming. 

Fast forward one day...Ahhh Sweet Karma took her revenge with this individual not one, but 3 times. As I sat there and watched it all take place.

Did I get a little enjoyment watching it, based on her actions towards me? - Yes
Did I feel bad for her later? - Yes
Did it resolve my issue with her? - No
Will this change her actions? - Probably not...and that is the sad part

How people treat you is your karma, how you react is yours.
You get what you give, whether it is good or bad.
So be good to the people that treat you right, forget about the ones that don't and know that just because someone does something negative to you doesn't mean they are a bad person - it means they made a bad choice.

What I'm Loving Wednesday

Oh Snap!
Is it really Wednesday? 
This means it is time to link up with Jamie for WILW

{I'm Loving}
My new link-up

I was absolutely amazed by how starting off my day positive really lifted my mood. Normally I am thinking Monday, it Friday yet? 

I woke up and thought Monday - let's do this! I was honestly in a good mood the entire day. I also enjoyed reading everyone's motivational posts and getting many sweet texts, e-mails and tweets about the link-up. I even woke up to a few tweets that Kim Kardashion put a Motivational Monday post on her blog. Ahh I love it!

Y'all are awesome! I can't wait to read more positive things next Monday. :)

{I'm Loving} 
Fall is in the air
...actually more like Hurricane Isaac
It always feels more "fall like" when it is the opening week of FOOTBALL SEASON
plus these new fall wardrobe purchases have made me a little anxious

{I'm Loving}

{I'm Loving}
This new purchase

Only a Razorback fan would like having little piggies around their house. Now I just need to find the perfect place for them.

{I'm Loving}
Leopard Accents - they pretty much make me feel fierce

{I'm Loving}
The "I'd Cap That" iPhone ap.
Serioulsy, how did I go this long without having this?
I was laughing so hard I was crying the other night.
I would love to share with you all some of the pictures but hubby might get a little embarrassed.

Motivational Monday Link-Up

Miserable? Of course you is Monday.
Let's face it. Most people dread Mondays. Am I right?
The weekend is over, it is time to get out of bed and back to our daily routine....Getting back in the "work mode" is difficult when you had a great weekend and  Friday afternoon is so far away.

Well if you are like me, Monday's are not your favorite. 


I am trying to be more positive in my life.
I couldn't think of a better way than starting a link-up to help Motivate / Inspire me to start my week off on a positive note.

This is such a powerful message to me.
No matter what you do, there will always be someone to try and bring you down. 
Negativity is destructive. 
It is easy to find the negative in things. 
Negativity surrounds us daily. 
Start being as positive as you can be in each and every way and you will not only be a happier person, but you will touch the lives of those around you in a positive way.

Be Kind
Be Honest
Be Happy
Do Good
Give Your Best

Whatever Motivation or Inspiration you want, have, or need in your life I would love for you to link up below and share with me. :)

**** Thank you to those who let me know my original link wasn't working right - try the inlinkz link up at the bottom.

Thank Goodness for FRIDAY

 Dear Friday... I am SO glad you are here, it has been a rough week. Today is going to be a good day! Dear Bentley....Why do you love coffee so much? I am pretty sure it is not normal for dogs to drink coffee. Dear Big Brother... I was sad to see Ashley go, her absent mindedness was very entertaining. Dear Customer.... I felt extremely bad when you walked in and I immediately asked you if you were an engaged man...not knowing you were coming in to return the engagement ring you purchased because she said no. Dear fashion.... I have a slight obsession with leopard. I wore it multiple times this week and felt rather fierce. Dear TLC... I tuned in to watch Here Comes Honey Boo Boo this week---- I am at a loss for words. Dear World.... It is amazing how we rely so heavily on spell check these days. My co-worker said a customer was a p-a-n-e and I said wait, did you mean p-a-i-n? He said Ahhh F. ha! Dear Disagreements.... I hate it when I always think of the clever things to say after you are over. Dear Men... Don't be so shocked when I speak up for myself. I will not let people take advantage of me so pick up your jaw from the floor and please re-think what you just told me.


Some of you might have read on my blog last week that I was going to start a link-up on Monday's. Well ladies here is what it is all about-

One thing I want to do in my life is to start being more positive. I couldn't think of a better way to do it then starting to post motivational / inspirational things at the beginning of each week.

Whether it be something to help me overcome something going on in my personal or work life...
-things such as- 
uplifting quotes
 bible verses 
or even fitness inspiration 

 I am going to start being a more positive person and would love if you would share some uplifting things along with me.

The link up starts Monday August 27th so get your posts ready and link up with me :)

What my face costs

This ladies is the makeup I use every day.
I have seen this on quite a few blogs lately and I thought I would try to find out on average, what my face costs.
No we are not talking about all the other makeup items I have...and let me tell you, it is A LOT. No, we are not talking about the brushes. No, we are not talking about my 15 shades of lip products I carry in my purse. No, we are not talking about any cleanser or moisturizer.
Just my every day products.
Can we say high maintenance?
{My husband will not disagree}

Well, here it is... all $277 bucks of it.

Motivational Monday

Don't have time to work out?
Think you have a busy schedule?

Here is a little something that might give you some more motivation to work out.

Intense? - Yes!
Did it get my attention? - Yes!
Hopefully this will help motivate me to get back in the gym or at least a workout at home.

Dear Aimee... I couldn't be more excited for you and your healthy newborn baby boy. I can't wait to spoil the mess out of that little man. You are also extremely lucky you had such a short and sweet labor. Congratulations!!! Dear Next Friday... Where are you?! I am ready to head out of town to see this newborn baby boy, friends, family and our friends wedding. Eeeeek so much going on. Dear Weather Forecast... 80's all next week, I love it! Dear Certain Businesses in town...Please start accepting debit cards. This is 2012...this lady does not carry cash. Seriously, did I mention it is 2012? Dear Life... You often throw us many curve balls, however there are very few things we cannot overcome. Please continue to stay positive as things work their way out. Dear Blog friends... I want to start hosting a link up on Monday's. Stay tuned, I am pretty excited about it, but that is all the deetz you are getting for now.

Soft, subtle, stunning

Although the color palette is soft and subtle, it makes a rich STATEMENT.

Three Simple Rules

1.  If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it
2.  If you don't ask, the answer will always be no 
3.  If you don't step forward, you will always be in the same spot

OMG - Jen, Spice Girls, Miley

It's happily ever after for Jen.
Take that tabloid break up rumors. Jen and her beau Justin Theroux reportedly got engaged on his birthday

"Justin Theroux had an amazing birthday on Friday, receiving an extraordinary gift when his girlfriend, Jennifer Aniston, accepted his proposal of marriage," his rep told People. 

I am so excited she is getting remarried and I'm even more excited for her because he's super cute...compared to a few gents she dated post Brad. Ahem, John Mayer, Vince Vaughan.. and everyone else that played a role beside her in a film.

I'll tell ya what I want, what I really, really want....
The Spice Girls to get back together!! - Girl Power -
Talk about memories....I still knew every single word
I just loved watching these girls perform last night!
It was a great way to cap off the Olympics. Way to go London.

In other news...
WTF was Miley thinking?

Miley Tweeted “Never felt more me in my whole life"

knowing this would probably get many negative reviews, she posted
 “if you don’t have something nice to say don’t say anything at all. my hair is attached to my head no one else’s and it’s going bye bye!"

Oh noooooo girl.
Wedding stress already?
This is not a good look.

Remind anyone else of this girl?
