Chinese Laundry Women's Haylie Pump

Chinese Laundry Women's Haylie Pump,Blush,7.5 M USChinese Laundry Women's Haylie Pump,Blush

What a pretty spring time pump. It come black and bronze in addition to the blush seen here. And it is the blush one the I am in love with. The cute ruffles make it trendy. This would be a great shoe for a wedding or spring time date. The heel looks very high, but that's probably just because I don't wear heels often so anything past a kitten heel is high for me. It also has great reviews and is described as sexy and comfortable.

The 80s- take me there

The 80s were a time of transition or so I think. I was barely around during that time. But movies like 16 candles and the breakfast club have me wishing that the 80s would somehow come back in its glory and let me be a teen for one day in it. A teenager in the 80s probably wasn't any different from one today. At least not in the grand scheme of things. They danced, laughed, cried and forgot that they wouldn't remain that way forever. That's one of the things about being a teenager. You want to grow up, but you forget you will. You forget that time doesn't stop or wait for anyone. It's fair to us all. How we use it, and our attitude towards it, is what sets apart.We can't be teens forever, but we can always dance, laugh, cry, and appreciate that we are getting older and better.

Change for the better

The quote above says "people change for the better, not for the worse." With God, they do. They adapt better, they cope better, they make better decisions, and they live and love better. Being on the other side, when I tried to change without him, didn't let me do a good job. I mean I was living, and I was changing, but I wasn't becoming someone I could be proud of. Perhaps it was because I was changing for the world, doing what those who live for external wanted me to do. But the external is limiting. You can only accomplish so much; you can only experience so much; and you can only change so much. But returning to the internal and the eternal eliminated the boundaries and limits. I changed fully, while still allowing myself to believe that God made me perfect. That in this moment, I can accept who I am and live as my best self.

Rositas--bling bling Cupcake Lampwork glass earrings

This beautiful pair of earrings come from elsyrene, a shop on It was the cupcake shape that first caught my attention, because I adore the sweetness which is a cupcake. But more than just cute, these earrings are pretty with the pink patterns and pink gem topping of the cupcake. Elsy really took her time with these beauties and it shows. They would look ever so charming with a cream chiffon dress.

Type Out Some Love

I very much want a pink type writer. Doesn't this look like it could type out some beautiful words of love. A pink type writer is actually one of those vintage items that is highly sought after, much like a pink Cadillac, they always sell quickly when auctioned off. If I had a pink typewriter I would type out a love letter and set it out into the world. 

Dear, beautiful wonderful you 
From, Your Gurl

Blessed Luck

I used to think I was a very lucky girl. That I was always dealt a nice hand of cards. But I soon realized that I'm not lucky at all.

I'm not lucky. I'm blessed. When I am holding on by a very thin string, God is the one keeping me from falling. He's the one that helps me play a fair hand in this game called life. Though some days I can feel as though there in nothing on my side, and there is no way to come out of a situation a winner, and the stack of cards leave me with very few options. I am reminded that God is on my side. Because he loves me I am always a winner and with his love there is always an option. And most times, the best option is just to keep trusting and believing in him. I cannot rely on luck or hold the belief that it can change but I can maintain the belief that God is still with me and he has blessed me with his love.
