alexander mcqueen dreams on a target budget

Let’s be honest, in this day and age, who has money to blow. Certainly not me......

But oh how I wish I did. Because if I did, trust and believe that my closet would runneth over with so many designer pieces mixed in with my favorites from J. Crew,  Old Navy/Gap, Joe Fresh, Zara, and H&M. I’m talking Saint Laurent, The Row, Giambattista Valli, Temperley London, Rag and Bone, Tibi, Cynthia Rowley, and Matthew Williamson. It’s quite apparent that I have Oscar de la Renta taste with only a Target budget, but that doesn't stop me from lusting over the things I want. 

So many designers with not enough money.

So I pledge to fake it until I make it. Can't afford that Chloe bag, I'm sure I can find something similar. Can't afford that Alice + Olivia skirt, I'm sure I can find something similar. See a trend. I can stay on trend and stay within a budget. I can have the designer look without breaking the bank. I can shop smart while I wait for that millionaire lifestyle to come true.

P.S. Welcome to my new series, Alexander McQueen taste on a Targeted budget.

bookworm review: inside broken by ana fawkes

Inside Broken by Ana W. Fawkes Book Review
Fresh out of prison, Talon wants his club back. Losing the President’s patch has left a scar deeper than any bullet or knife is capable of. 
To get it back, he’ll have to endure a war, battling both himself and someone he once considered as close as a brother. 
And in the midst is a beautiful woman looking for a chance at survival...

You can purchase this book on Amazon!

My Review:

Intrigued. Confused. Needy.

Three things that came to my mind all throughout my read of this book.

Intrigued: What the hell is up with Layne? What really happened with Layne and Talon? What will happen with the Devil Call MC?

Confused: Why was Everly still in the Devil Call’s unsavory lair? Why did she want to get chosen? Why not leave?

Needy: I need more information. I feel like the story was too short for me. We jumped right into a few days before Talon was released from jail. I need more background on the motorcycle club.  I need more on what brought Everly to Devil Call MC. I just need more. I wish this book was much longer.

Talon: Not sure how I feel about him yet. He’s headstrong. The epitome of an Alpha male. He acted first then thought about his actions afterwards. He’s strong. A no nonsense type of man. Oh, and he’s sexy.

Everly: She’s drawn to Talon before she even met him. She never left Layne and Devil Call for some reason. She clearly has some issues that she had not worked through yet. She’s needy. She’s jealous. She’s confused. She’s messed up. Random: I thought it was funny when she was beating up the other whores in the club.

My ratings: 4 stars

Time it took to read: 1.5 days

If you are missing your Jax and his Sons of Anarchy, this book is for you. Talon kind of reminds me of Jax. Quick read. You’ll be hungry for more. A good start in this series. Can’t wait for the next book to find out what happens next for Talon and Everly. P.S. I was more curious about the inner struggles of the MC.  Call it SOA withdrawal.

P.S.S. I received this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.

bookworm cover reveal: tycoon by j.s. cooper

Tycoon by J.S. Cooper

Scott Colton. Wolf of Wall Street. King of the Boardroom. My Boss.
I hated him the moment I met him. And he didn’t even give me a second glance.
Yet, he still hired me.
He thought I was there to submit to his every whim.
I knew better.
I knew his secrets, his skeletons in the closet. And I was going to expose every single one of them.
Then the rules changed. And everything was in disarray. Suddenly I realized that the Scott Colton I thought I knew was just a myth. The real Scott Colton was someone, even I, had underestimated.

reimagining my living room with modani

It's the end of the year, and around this time, I'm usually daydreaming/visualizing/wishing/imagining what 2015 will bring. More money. Better blog posts. Healthy life. Great family. Etc..... One thing thats been nagging me is the decor of our home. B lived there first, and everything is suited to his taste (not mine) so I want to redo it. Think he'll let me? I hope so, and if I get my way, I'm starting with the living room. Instead of his browns and whites, I want grays, yellows, blues, and whites. I want throw pillows and a rug my dogs would love to sleep on. To help him see my vision, I created this mood board featuring all things  Modani, and it all started with their modern sofas collection. We have a suede couch now that is the resting place of my dogs' fur. It has got to go!!!!!!!!!!!!

P.S. Isn't that mirror so haute? I need one of those ASAP.

My Dream Living Room
