“To see you when I wake up, is a gift I didn’t think could be real
To know that you feel the same, as I do, is a Three-fold utopian dream
You do something to me
That I can’t explain
So would I be out of line, If I said
I miss you.
I see your picture, I smell your skin on, the empty pillow next to mine
You have only been gone ten days, but already I am wasting away
I know I’ll see you again
Whether far or soon
But I need you to know, that I care
And I miss you”

– Incubus “I Miss You”

I am going to sound like a broken record, but I seriously can not keep up lately!  While I am finally done with EVERY aspect of the aforementioned renovation for “the room that techs built”, I feel like I am slowly easing being thrown head first back into normal life.  My internal clock is completely off and I am not quite sure of the exact day.  I am not pretty certain that my arms are strong enough to hold much (yes, this “much” would include a watch as I like the manly man types) as every single part of my body is aching, yet I need to wear something/anything on my wrists to keep me anywhere near on schedule – I am horrible with chargers and my phone battery is always running on “E”.  I love that I am not having to settle with this watch and wear just anything, not only is it chic and unique but it is also incredibly lightweight.  Winning!  Now that I feel like I can do #alltherenos, do any of ya’ll have any home renovations you need done?!  You provide the Icy/Hot, I’ll provide the techs;).

property {sisters}

Let me preface this post by saying I love my sister, I love my sister dearly, I love both of my sisters!  That being said, I will think twice before ever entering into a “one day project” type renovation again.  Actually I take that back I would help either of them at the drop of a hat.  However, I will help knowing that it will most likely be a one-two week long, all day and all nighter, nightmare inducing pain in my a**.  LITERALLY nightmare inducing, I have tossed and turned for the past week because spackle, paint, bead board, dry wall and trims have taken over my dreams.  After being in what felt like an episode of property brothers it was nice to get dressed in something other than yoga pants and my husbands tees to feel like myself again.  What was once referred to as the “serial killer room” will now be referred to as “Shangri-La” and forever known as “the room that techs built”!

#waystoyosca – on the line

I seriously can not stop wearing my Gerard Yosca pieces, the versatility is beyond words.  I do not think I have a single piece in my wardrobe that each piece individually, or even together, would not match.  I even have Emma attempting to steal them for her last week of school, in her exact words “I need a special outfit mommy, ____’s friend (name omitted) told me he has a crush on me!”.  While she may be too young for a boyfriend, she is never too young to get started on a killer jewelry collection.

Don’t forget to use the hashtag #waystoyosca to share how you wear your Gerard Yosca pieces and use the code: Mesa20 for 20% off any new pieces you have been wanting to add to your collection.

#waystoyosca – singular

I have long been lusting after the Louis Vuitton singular earrings, seen here.  Lusting but not willing to pull the trigger considering the price.  When these amazing Yosca stunners arrived I knew they would be the perfect alternative, doubled up by day and singular by night…

While jewelry for me is a necessity, I refuse to just throw it on and go.  There has to be thought behind it, no matter how much of a statement or how delicate it is I want pieces that speak to me.  I have built my entire jewelry collection around just that, pieces that “speak to me”.  Upon discovering Gerard Yosca I couldn’t stop scrolling through and drooling over every single piece.  This number so delicate, but in a length that is like no other, and makes a statement all it’s own.

Wedding season is upon us, and with weddings comes wedding attire!  Skirts, dresses, formals, jewels, clutches… men have it so easy (except for still needing us to tie their bowties;)) – suits!  What is it about weddings that make us feel like we can’t wear the same dress twice?!While I can run in my heels and don’t often wear flats I have never been much of a formal attire girl.  So when it comes to formal weddings I am all for affordable options and pieces I can easily rework into my lifestyle.  I have always been a sucker for voluminous maxi skirts and when I saw this beauty there was no exception, I was sold!  Not to mention it is under $70!

rehash

I have a feeling that these perfectly cropped trousers and wooden soled stunners are going to be on constant repeat this spring and summer.  Since they arrived they have both been in non-stop rotation, it’s almost embarrasing.  But any piece that has people stopping me in the streets when I feel my most basic are a win in my book.  Both mix and match with the rest of my existing wardrobe flawlessly!  I will be the first to say I do not wear new pieces ever day, I am and always have been someone who remixes the old and the new on a more than regular basis.  Hashtag: sorry not sorry!

“There’s something in your eyes
Is everything all right?
You look up to the sky
You long for something more, Darlin’
Give me your right hand
I think I understand, follow me
And you will never have to wish again
I know that after tonight
You don’t have to look up
At the stars no no no no
And I know by the end of tonight
You don’t have to look up at the stars
And I know if the love is alright
You don’t have to look up
At the stars no no no no
I know by the end of tonight
You don’t have to look up at the stars”

I am loving the 70’s revival in almost every aspect of the fashion world.  Taking the old and adding a chic, modern, twist will get me every single time.  My jaw hit the floor when I saw these Prada beauties… my jaw went through the floor at the price for such a trendy piece.  When I found this similar version from Zara I couldn’t “add to cart” quickly enough.

On a completely different note life has slowed down from how crazy it has been the past few weeks.  I am sorry for how crazy absent I have been, I am self-admittedly the worst right now… the absolute worst!  Do you ever feel like between at times you just can’t keep up?!  Now that everything is back on track I am working on adding the video content that I have gotten so many requests for.  I absolutely plan on doing the shoe collection, hair tutorials (no matter how embarrassingly easy and lazy I am when it comes to doing my hair), jewelry staples, and possibly random vlogs that I have gotten requests for.  This is where ya’ll come in, besides the aforementioned is there anything else that you would like to see?  I was thinking of starting with an “intro to me” type of video where I answer common questions  (leave any more you may have below) or an (x number) of things about me video.  Thoughts?  Would this even still be of interest?  I feel like I am way too boring but have gotten so many emails and comments asking for these types of things.
