Working furiously at this

     I've been scarce and hardly visited or commented on blogs, nor have I photographed or posted updates much less painted my toe nails, but thought I'd share with y'all what's going on. 
     Besides going to gym, batting to get my housekeeper to work according to my Flylady schedule, school year ending, text books and stationery for 2014 needing to be purchased, I finally bit the bullet and decided to go with my own hosted blog.
     So without further ado ... please would grab your coffee and click the image below to visit my overhauled blog ... there is still some debris around from the move, so mind your step for the next few days ... if you a follower via bloglovin, please would you click the icon at the bottom of the new blog to follow, I managed to create two profiles and can't get them to merge and then managed to lose all my followers too ... hope to see you there, Wendy.

Houndstooth ... with blue

I do so love this houndstooth skirt of mine.  It's a knit material and ueber comfy to wear.  I like that it can look super smart and fairly casual too.  I wore it in winter as well with tights and booties and a long sleeved shirt and in another shared outfit with a red peplum.  I think I may well pack it in for my trip in December as I can easily wear it three times with different tops. 
It was super hot today and the sky remained totally free of clouds.  Its wonderful weather for sun babies but those like me who got themselves roasted in their younger years know to stay indoors next to the fan with a 1.5l of water.
The details :
Necklace : Legit
Shirt : Woolworths
Skirt : Legit
Shoes : Conempo
Handbag : Justine Cosmetics
Sunnies : Fairlady freebies just for show
You may remember that it was a mid calf length skirt when I purchased it and the day I wore it to work with the red peplum, my collegue immediately told me that she did not like the length on me ... and neither did I.  Off to the tailor it went and how much better does it look in the second picture below and the look above?
'Til we visit again - have a fabulous day.

Fabulous Fashionistas to Follow

I love Pinterest and often find interesting Fashionistas or Style Bloggers through pins.  I think that at least 80% of the bloggers I follow I've found through this means.

Today, I thought I'd share three fabulous bloggers I found this week and added to my reading list ... starting with
her byline says "A sweet little personal style blog" and its sweet.  

I enjoyed her description of herself as well
I always dreamed of coming to NYC and landing a glamorous job in the fashion industry. 
Instead I became a technology geek and now spend most of my days talking bits and
bytes with IT Directors. Even though khakis and polos are the standard uniform within
 my industry, I prefer dresses and high heels. Closet Confections is my outlet for
 injecting a daily dose of style and beauty into my life. 

Next I found Jessie at Seams for a Desire (such a sexy blog name) via Lydias Pin of this outfit  2

... shes young and cute and dresses way younger than I should but I enjoyed her site and its great inspiration.

Then I found Jackies blog named Lips, Hips and Fashion Tips ... the name intrigues me, I have hips, curvy hips that cannot be ignored, so I went to visit.

The image below sold me so I added her to my reading list, this is the kind of quote I share on WLW

I especially like her 'About" page

LIPS,HIPS and FASHION TIPS  is on a mission to empower everyone to get stronger — both mentally and physically.
Decide it
Accept it
Believe it
 Repeat it, own it…LIVE IT!
Lips, Hips and Fashion Tips is a one-stop shop for all things beauty, fashion, fitness…and how to improve your overall health.  There’s something for everyone to read!
 and she promised to  share her knowledge and experiences via LIPS, HIPS and FASHION TIPS.  She goes one to say "I love to share nutrition tips, fun fitness facts, all things fashion, but I’m obsessed with nails and I have a soft spot for peanut butter!  The purpose of this blog is to help everyone understand their full potential…no more excuses!"
My belief is that anyone can commit to being the strongest versions of themselves.  I hope you enjoy and follow me on this adventure called LIFE ... with so much positivity and her sounding like what I preach to myself and those nearest and dearest to me, I have to keep an eye on this lady.

And then I found a gorgeous new South African  blog to share by a young lady named Amy Scheepers ... Fancy Pants ... just go there ... click the links, browse around and thank me afterwards ;-)

Hope you enjoy and here's wishing you a wonderful Saturday.
