Finding something on ASOS that I love is soooo easy. Their selection, prices and shipping are fantastic!! Most of you know this because you probably peruse their site or shop there. I'm so glad I found their site and was invited to the preview. It was a great day for me actually. I got the invite from Sean, got a call from Lit that I got the job, attended the preview, met up with my best friend, went shopping together, which he dislikes but I got him great stuff at my previous job, had a nice dinner and went for a bike ride!!  I also received a gift voucher from Austin, the Senior Director of Fashion PR for ASOS. Below is my first pick, a long belted(not shown) olive cardigan. I ordered the khaki and the olive showed up instead this past Monday. It worked out better though, this color is better on me with my blonde hair! I'll get a lot of use out of it and pair it with everything, dresses, skirts, jeans with boots or flats!!

Working out

One of my passions, other than styling, shopping and such, is working out and being healthy. I also consider myself an extremely healthy eater, I don't drink that much and quit smoking a year and a half ago!!! Anyways, I'm not the girl that goes to the gym, nor am I a runner or a crazy active person, ie swimming, playing sports. I have a bicycle so that goes a long way in the exercise department, but other than walking it's my only form of outside activity. I do wish I could do more, but I prefer the inside, privacy of my own apartment activity. I dance, yup and you all do it too!!! I also do yoga, pilates, weights and other various exercises. This isn't about boring you with my workout routine, though. My motivation and ideas for stuff comes from another source, Miss Sarah Dussault. I found her on YouTube and loved her. When I found out she was local, I loved her even more!! I met her in Trader Joe's as well and she was so sweet! She provides tips, videos, recipes and more!! Check her out here & here.

What's with all the questions??

Should I go darker? As in my hair? Not back to black, but a golden brown? I don't know if I'm having the A/W itch or I'm just not loving my hair lately. I know, I know it's seems ridiculous, but I'd like opinions. I also wanted to ask if anyone liked the dress in my Sunday post! Should I get it? I also am looking to pick up some good reads. Anyone reading anything good as of late? For all you JC lovers out there, did you receive that offer from Refinery29? If you haven't, let me know and I'll forward it to you!! It's half off of almost 60 pairs of JC's.  Ok, last but not least, save the date on October 19th!! I have a fun Blogger event and would love everyone to attend. I'll send out more info soon. Enjoy your Monday.

Hello, Ciao, Hola, Aloha, Oy, Bonjour!! hehehe It's been awhile, that's for sure. I've been reading everyone's blog as much as possible but I have not been posting. It feels weird. I still need to go through clothes from the move, buy a tripod and other things I've tried to put before blogging. This is also day 16 with no day off. Anyways, my camera has been broken as well and I'm not the biggest fan of iPhone pictures (even though I've used them here).

This is a necklace I purchased from my new job, which I love love love (the necklace and job).  It's a new piece and at a great price point! I wear it with everything. I'll definitely be posting more once I get the camera fixed and a tripod. Hope you wonderful ladies are well :)

This is the lovely house warming gift from my younger sister, Colleen. She helped in a big way with my move and that was enough of a gift for me, but she surprised me with this dress form! I love it. I always wanted one. For now I'm using it to display some necklaces and a belt.

Hello!! Welcome to September! Most of you did not move during this lovely week. I, on the other hand, did. I haven't moved in two years but remembered quite quickly at how stressful it is. I've moved approximately 5 times now. I lived on Marlborough Street for two years, Peterborough, in Fenway, for four, The Fenway for one and in the SE for two. I love the South End but my area wasn't the best and I always loved Fenway and felt like it is truly my home. Now I'm back on Peterborough Street and happier than ever. The only thing this apartment did not have is closet space. It has one, yes one, closet for this girl. I've always had two or one of the biggest closets you can imagine. It was daunting and challenging, but with the help of my lovely mother, I made things come together. So I won't post till after my mother leaves with new pics of either my place or two great new outfits I've acquired! Hope to have friends here soon for drinks at my new place!! Have a fantastic weekend :)
