Lauren Conrad -Kohl’s Fall 2010 Collection

available through kohls.com

I am loving the Lauren Conrad Collection for Fall 2010, only available through Kohls and kohls.com.

Her clothes are simple, feminine, and very sophisticated. And by the price, pretty affordable. Her clothes are priced around $22.00 – $59.00 for tops, bottoms, and dresses.

I think she is doing the fashion thing very well. I think when she first had her line through Bloomingdales, it was way too over priced. The crowd for Bloomingdales are not going to be the demographic that will buy her clothes.

This year the style is leaning towards an English sophistication with the tall knee boots, ruffles and the airy prints. I see this in many stores such as Ann Taylor Loft and Express and The Limited.

My Perfect Boots

For this summer, I would like to find my perfect pair of boots. I have ordered 4 pairs of boots from Endless.com and none were to my satisfaction. There were most likely but they weren’t “perfect!”

It is so hard to find that right pair of boots over the internet. Thought I think they’re perfect on the web, but when I get it, I am very disappointed.

I guess that’s why I’m reluctant to search for the pair even though I think I found it. On Selena Gomez’s character Alex Russo of Wizards of Waverly Place.

I am a big fan of this TV show. I watch it with my kids. I always see  Alex with this gorgeous dark brown  almost black leather boots. It looks like a low wedge heel, mid calf boots. I love the cuff and the slouch. It also has a pointed toe.

Of course, with my luck, even if I find the make and the exact style somewhere, it probably will not look good on me.

I have purchase several pointed toe boots and I’ve returned them all.

Summer Handbag

BCBGMAXAZRIA black studded lambskin medium crossbody hobo

Bluefly.com is a total godsend. I just found my perfect summer bag. I know summer is almost over but I knew I had to have a rocking summer handbag. It’s been a year since I purchased a new handbag. It was definitely time for a change.

Granted, I love my medium Coach hobo. I realized with two kids I can’t keep toting a single medium shoulder bag. Lately, when I leave home with the kids, I usually have to carry an additional bag just for the kids.

I haven’t received this BCBG bag yet, but I know it’s going to be PERFECT!

Fresh Diet Groupon

I know I haven’t updated my posts in a while. The food is still being delivered daily. I have finished my first 31 days and lost 5-6 lbs. I am very happy. The clothes are fitting a lot better.

I recently found a Groupon deal for the same $29 a day and I purchase 25 days worth of meals. It was very easy to contact Fresh Diet to add the 25 new days to my account. I was able to select meals right away for the new time period.

I realized that I do like the meals but the meals are beginning to repeat itself. I am seeing the same meals appear every 2 weeks. I know I should try a new dish sometimes but I like choosing meals I am familiar with. I have noticed a change in how I eat.

I haven’t been eating as well as I used to. I’m cheating more often. Meaning I go out to eat more often. The foods are not as tasty as I remember. I don’t think quality is an issue with Fresh Diet. I think it’s just me. The regularity of these meals are making my taste buds wilt. I think I might just suspend the meals for several weeks and start it back up later.

Day 14

Day 14 Fresh Diet Menu

 

 Breakfast: The burrito was not rolled up. It was a 1/4 slice of green tortilla that was topped with eggs, bell peppers and cheese. Though it was good, I thought it was more like a pizza then burrito.

Lunch: I had a late lunch, almost at 4 pm. The salad was alot. I thought it had too much mozzarella. I felt like it was nothing but cheese and pasta and not enough baby spinach. It filled me up fine.

Dinner: I had cheated a snacked on my 2 year old’s pizza. It was 1 slice. Then 1 hour later I had the dinner. It tasted okay. The grilled chicken was a lot thicker than usual. The sauce had a bit of spice. What I love are the portabellas which is in most of my meals. The asparagus was good but the stalks are not large, very thin.

Snacks: I skipped these snacks because I already had the pizza.

Overall: Today’s meal was average. Everything is edible thank goodness but these are not the foods I would normally eat. I am not a big salad fan for lunch nor would I each sandwiches for lunch. I am realizing I might have to change my eating habits after this trial diet is over. There are some foods that are really good for my body.

Day 13

Day 13 Fresh Diet

 

Breakfast: I love egg bakes! It’s my new favorite thing. I think it is easy to make too. I wish I have the ability to cook well. I do not have the patience. And I am the only eating these foods. My two kids are too young and my husband is picky beyond words.

Lunch: Lovely lunch. I felt like it was an English meal. The food was light yet filling. All I was missing was a pot of tea. Unfortunately my baby lettuce salad on the side included a little bug on the leaves. It just left me shuddering to think if there were any other bugs in it.

Dinner: Vegitarian? wow… those meatballs were the best I have ever tasted! It was super soft and moist. It just melted in my mouth.

Snack 1: The skewers were delicous. It was tough but it was tender. Just okay.

Snack 2: Did not eat last night. I have the peanut butter cheesecake from the night before.

Overall: Continually loving the meals. Especially the part where I don’t have to cook anything.
