My birthday is looming, yes I say looming because the years are flying by! I have a grey hair that won’t quit and some wrinkles of which I never believed would appear, but THEY DO/DID! Anyways, my birthday also reminds me that I get to spoil myself. Now that I’m an adult, I am allowed to spend my money the way I please. I think self love is super important so why not? I want to start a new tradition for myself of buying a piece of jewellery for myself each birthday. Jewellery is something I can collect and look at to remind me of the place I was in when I bought it, so I think this will be a special thing I do for myself. Agree?
There is nothing more comfortable (and stylish) to me than a good sneaker. I love that sneakers are a huge fashion trend that’s sticking around. I can remember when wearing sneakers with a dress or skirt was a MEGA fashion no no, but now it’s the s@#% (as long as it’s paired well of course). Every brand I click on these days while online “window shopping” has a ‘walking’, ‘lifestyle’, or ‘casual’ section because they know they have to cater to the stylish street wearability that is the sneaker trend. On my days off I like to kick it (get it) in sneakers most of the time because my feet are usually exhausted (server life). I can’t wait to get my feet into some of the sneakers I’ve been eyeing above this season. I love that brands are bringing back their classic styles with a twist. The platform trend has to be my favourite, mostly because I wear heels due to that fact that I didn’t win the lottery in terms of height, so the heeled sneaker has been quite a blessing. I think first on my list are the platform Keds canvas platform and the Reebok Classics. I’m really into those two styles at the moment and can see myself getting a lot of wear out of them.
How do you feel about sneakers and the fashion statement they’re making?
This Spring is COLD! Tis the season for an easy throw on jacket that is equally stylish and warm “ish”. The “teddy” coat is the coat of the season. I think it’s effortless and chic and adds that touch of personal style when you’re in a slump and stuck wearing basics ( am I only referring to myself here?
This Valentines don’t forget your man! If you are celebrating this Hallmark holiday it’s important for both of you to be spoiled in whatever way you like to do so. I asked my man recently what he thinks a guy would want for valentines day and said ” a woman to spoil..” and then a word that rhymed with spoil. (take out the p). A real comedian that one. Regardless, he didn’t help so I had to get creative. I thought of all the things that he would enjoy and what guys I know might also like as a material type of gift. My guy loves baseball, good jewellery, good beard products, a tasty cocktail and adventures together. I think a really good gift is the gift of adventures together. Creating memories you can share together forever is priceless. Concert tickets to even a plane ticket, spontaneity I think is something every relationship can use to keep it spicy and feeling fresh. Remember Valentines is NOT about the material shit it’s about the guy or gal you’re spending it with. Remember to say I Love You, and Thank You for supporting me and loving me back. Love is pretty special.
