I didn’t get into wine until my honeymoon in Italy. Boy that was AMAZING wine…it was delicious and inexpensive and delicious. I know a lot of beer drinkers and totally thought of them when I found this infographic. Wine for beer drinkers…based on the beer you love, this will recommend a wine to try! Check it out!

Now that you know what shoes I am liking for the Spring, here comes the clothing! Where I live it is Spring-ish practically year round, but since I grew up in the northeast, I still have a love of light jackets and sweaters.
This faux suede perforated bomber jacket by Kenneth Cole is so cute…
This Halogen pencil skirt is perfect for work, maybe even with a pop of color lightweight sweater.
This next outfit would be perfect for work, but what’s cool is you can wear the tank and blazer casually as separates.
Although I don’t have muscles per say, I love this tank by Lily Aldridge for Velvet.
I am a fan of one-piece outfits…nothing to think about in the morning – just like this Splendid jumpsuit.
Here is a great weekend outfit. The Derek Lam shirt looks very comfy as does the jeans!
What is your favorite trend for the Spring?
What an amazing feeling to come home from work on a Friday to find not one, not two, but THREE Spring 2014 fashion catalogs waiting for me. There was also a pile of boxes which I don’t mention out loud, in hopes that my husband won’t “see” them. The best though – I hear a knock at the door and it is UPS and Fed Ex…LOL I’m in troouubblllleeee.
Fast forward to this morning – my husband took my older son to karate and I stayed home with our little guy as he still has an annoying cough. Perfect time to check out the Spring Fashion line-up! After going through the Starbucks drive-thru with G and Sadie, we were all set! Fashion favorites here I come!
Birkenstocks in patent leather – they were all over the runways (and are really good for your feet).
Lately I have been gravitating to Vince shoes. I am a big fan of the sweaters, and unfortunately for my wallet, now the Genna Shoes.
At $2,295 I know that these will not make it into my closet, but they are cool! Giuseppe Zanotti knows how to design a vavoom sandal for sure!
Who doesn’t love some Jimmy Choo? This pair of perforated pumps caught my eye in the latest Saks catalog…the pair that I saw was a lychee color…gorgeous.
Hot…crazy, but hot. Love these Gucci suede fringe-front sandals!
On a more casual, and budget-friendly note, these Dolce Vita gladiators would look great with just about anything.
All I see is comfort when I look at these Via Spiga suede sandals. Hmmmm…I think I may be going to Bloomingdales tomorrow!
Last, but not least, is a pair from Tory Burch. Gladiators as well, but these are super special and there is a story behind them. One sunny day I received an email from Tory Burch with these shoes. I clicked on the link, fell in love, and then sent the link to my husband along with the only word “Obsessed“. Valentine’s Day came around…guess what I got?!? YAYAYAYAY! They are super comfy and match just about everything. (Note to self – send R links to favorite items around holiday time more often!!)
Which pair is your favorite?

Happy Friday!! What are you up to this weekend? Our first basketball games are on Sunday – should be interesting! Also, we’re going to take a trip to the zoo…we used to go ALL THE TIME – we were on a first name basis with the carousel volunteer (Herb, we miss you!!). Maybe the boys will sit long enough for us to watch one of the animal shows…maybe being the operative word. Enjoy my 5 favorites for Friday!
People always ask me how I have time to read…well, I MAKE time! Once the boys are in bed is technically the best time for me to get some reading in. My husband and I like to watch TV together at this time so I don’t read every night but try to get in 2 – 3 nights of solid reading. I found this article on how you too can find time to read.
Speaking of watching TV with my husband, one of the shows we like to watch is Girls. I started watching it on my own, but then figured he might like it. It took a few episodes for him to get used to it, but now in the middle of season 3 it’s a fun show to talk about together. Ever wonder why now you can’t really relate to the characters? It’s all part of the plan…
This next video is very useful! Ever wonder about the easiest way to peel a hardboiled egg? Eat a chicken wing? Check out this two minute video…I’ll never eat a banana the same (Max and Bara if you are reading this…)
This video made me laugh…all I have to say is “blah, blah, blah”.
