My Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice!

Because October isn’t complete without pumpkin patch pictures! I may not be the brains behind the operation but I gotta say that I’m glad we went! Angelina talked about pumpkins the entire way there and was in heaven while running through the patch. It’s the simplicity that children love and that really makes you realize how grateful we should be. They may be small but these little people are bundles of knowledge and lessons.

Feeling grateful today!

Heart, star.

Positivity Check

A lot of people always ask me the same question… Do I ever have bad days? Well the truth is my blog really is a true reflection of myself. I am a little cray cray (in a good way, I think). I am addicted to healthiness, fashion, jewellery, makeup, being a momma, love and most importantly my family – which I think I make very clear in my posts! And yes, I do talk exactly the way a write. Now more then ever it is true, because with the time crunch I’m on with Angelina sometimes I don’t even have time to edit my writing! Which I’m sure you’ve all noticed from time to time!

So back to the question, yes I do have bad days. It’s bound to happen once in awhile but it’s how I deal with it that I think I’m getting better at. I really truly do everything in my power to surround myself with people that I care about and have my best intentions at heart. It’s not to say that I have sworn off the people that don’t toodle my fancy. In some cases I’ve actually done the opposite, it’s weird how the world works sometimes. The people who I may of once had a “this is it moment” with i’ve actually noticed myself bringing back in my life. Because the truth is people change and the even harder truth is that I’ve changed. A lot! So I try to be with people where we both make each other love being exactly who we are and actually appreciate us for us. Plain and simple.

It’s easier said then done, I know. The hard part is actually deciding who are those people to let in to the Parita Loves You Club. This part took me really long to learn and truthfully I still am learning. But my main rule of thumb is actually really simple. Once we’ve hung out or had a conversation on the phone and part ways, do they then judge or talk about me? I would test this theory a couple times before making a decision though! Friends don’t talk ill about other friends behind their back. Although the truth is I will actually never really know the answer to that, but gosh darn it our subconscious is smart… Really smart! If you even think it, it’s probably true. Sad right?!? Well it shouldn’t be. How I look at it, I thank that person (in my head of course) and think to myself “okay okay, it’s all gravy, they may not be the right fit for me but they got to be for someone else. See ya, wouldn’t wanna be ya.” And my once swinging door for the Parita Loves You Club shuts down for business until a later date.

I’m grateful for those people. The good part is, each one of those situations that has come into my life has been an amazing, sometimes life changing lesson. Those people made me realize even more that I love who I am, I love doing what I do, I love my life, I love the people in it and no one can ever take that away from me. That gives my a high! Like a drunk high where I haven’t slept in three days as I get ready again for a full moon party in Thailand kinda high. (I’ve never actually been to a full moon part but this is what I think I’d feel like!)

As for everything else going on… I love doing my paritaTIME Boutique. I love shopping! What girl doesn’t?!? More importantly I love shopping for deals, steals and good finds! Very simply put, if it makes me feel fabulous it will probably do the same for you. So why not share the details?!? That again toodles my fancy! Lots of toodling going on here!

DO THINGS THAT MAKE YOU HAPPY EVERYDAY, trust me!!! It’s fun! If that’s reading paritaTIME do it! Don’t let anything or anyone stop you! Bahaha I really kill myself sometimes, but you get my point.

Now this post is getting long, Angelina’s tossing and turning so it’s probably time for me to punch my time card in for mommy duty.

If you’ve left with anything from today’s post, start surrounding yourself with people that make you feel fabulous! Because whether you see it or not you are FAN-FREAKIN-TASTIC! Hip hip hooray!!!!

Heart, star.

Are Uggs still cool?

I have always been that person that said I would never wear Uggs.  Refused it! To me they just looked ridiculous.  Then I got knocked up.  My shoes that were usually comfortable, just weren’t the same anymore.  Even the smallest heels were uncomfortable sometimes.  It really depends on the day, each day is a whole new funzys story.

So I went to Town Shoes the other day and they had a very convenient buy one get one ½ off sale.  I happened to walk by the Uggs, I was bored… I tried them on. IT WAS LIKE WALKING ON A CLOUD.  I was shocked!  They are soft, little magnificent pieces of fluffy heaven.  They make up for the not so flattering shape.  In fact, I think I forgot about all my preconceived notions of these Uggsies!  Is this another bandwagon I’m jumping on late?  Story of my life lately.

With a deal so good, I couldn’t just buy one pair.  They were basically trying to give me the other pair for free… well half free.  It just didn’t seem right.  I bought two.  Not any normal two, a zebra print and a flashy dashy gold pair.  Just because.  You know me by now, normal doesn’t do.  Once I bought them, I sat in the car and thought wait… Are Uggs still cool?  I have decided to make an executive decision and say yes they are.  Comfort never goes out of style.  Well it sometimes does, but not this one.  Preggo or not, I think everyone should give these bad boys a chance.  Yes they can be pricey, but no one said walking in Heaven was cheap!

Below are some examples of hottie patootie girls rockin’ them and making them look extra cool and sometimes even sexy.  Good on you Victoria Secret models. Now if that isn’t inspiration, I don’t know what is! Who would’ve guessed?

Stay sassy!

Because a Post-it is worth a 1000 feelings!!!

Today as I walked over to my desk I had a cutesy patootesy message from my dear friend Carmen. Yesterday as I was walking around the office trying to hunt down some green tea to satisfy my daily craving, Carmen felt the pain in my eyes when the mission was unsuccessful! What did she do about it? She brought me a smile! Today when I walked in not only did she bring me green tea, there was also A NOTE! Five words that put a permanent smile on my face and happy feelings mania!

Sometimes simple acts are the most appreciated!

Easy, breezy, beautiful Covergirl.
