"When putting together a wardrobe, remember this equation: 70% should be driven by practicality and 30% by frivolity and fun." - Christopher Bailey (Burberry head designer)


Picked up these shoes a couple of weeks while I was in NYC. They are by Nine West. Had my 14 yr old photographer take a pic before I headed out to an ornament exchage party. These are the most comfortable 5 inch heels I have worn yet! Are these practical or fun?

"The thing about perfume is that when you take everything off, you still have perfume on. That's sexy." - Christopher Bailey (Burberry head designer)


Brown Sugar by Fresh is my new favorite perfume. I received a sample from Sephora when I ordered Leg Shine by M. Kors. I have worn it everyday. What I like about it is, a little goes a long way. Just one spritz and it stays with you all day. The scent is citrusy mixed with caramel and magnolia. Very "fresh" and clean fragrance. I dislike loud, overpowering, powdery scents. Maybe Santa will stuff my stocking with a bottle. What is your favorite perfume?

I Walk...

This past Sunday my sister-n-law and I did a walk for AIDS funding. The walk was sponsored by Triad Health Project. The 20th Annual Winter Walk for AIDS is a three-mile walk that raises vital funding for Triad Health Project's direct client services and preventioneducation programs. The theme of this year's event is "I Walk...", and it serves as a powerful reminder that HIV/AIDS affects everyone.

Wendy and I had a gorgeous 3 mile walk through the streets of downtown Greensboro. We were very pleased to see alot of North Carolina A&T student involvement. Even though quite a few of the female students walked in Uggs and riding boots, we were still happy that they supported the walk.

I'm on a mission to get my 10,000 steps in a day. My dad who is also making a lifestyle change to walk 10,000 steps a day, gave me the pedometer shown below. As you can see, I walked over 10,000 steps this past Sunday. I walked my dog, walked 3 miles for AIDS, and I walked around Costco "sampling." Wendy and I got to Costco at a great time. All of the good samples were out! I walked in Costco hungry, but when I walked out, I was satisfied. Cheers!
