This is a place where you can discover all my latest findings and currently coveted items in all things pretty. You will probably think that I have a severe shopping addiction, and you are probably right. I try to downplay this from my real life friends but let it out in full force online. I like to find good deals, but I wouldn't call myself a bargain shopper. That's just way too much work for me! I am happy to spend more money on quality items when necessary, and I like mixing things up. Honestly though, most of the time my desire to own something outweighs any monetary considerations as long as it's not too unattainable! Yep, I am a true addict! =D
When I first started this blog in the beginning of 2010, I simply wanted a place where I could categorize all my purchases. But being a fitness enthusiast, it has evolved over the years to become more fitness oriented. Admittedly, I now spend way too much money on workout gear! But I go to the gym 5-7 days a week, and having cute workout clothes to wear is a definite motivator for me! I've been an avid Lululemon addict for years, as you can see by the hundreds of Lululemon items that I have posted about. But lately I've been trying to branch out and try out other great brands that have emerged onto the scene. Some of my new favorite brands include Lorna Jane, Splits59, Lole, Lija, Alo Sport, and those yummy Beyond Yoga leggings! I'm always on the lookout to discover more, and appreciate the tips and advice that my lovely readers give me!
If you are new to my blog, the usual format is that I post about different items I buy during the week, and every Sunday, I do a "Sunday Funday" post which chronicles my workout routine from that week as well as pictures of outfits that I wore. I do have a full time corporate desk job as well (unfortunately a must in order to pay for my expensive shopping habit), so I post items and pictures relevant to workplace wear as well. Of course, I do also include outfits worn during a night out on the town or on a brunch or shopping trip on the weekend. I cut off my head from my pictures for a bit more anonymity - I don't want my face to appear all over google image search when someone looks for an item I've reviewed!
My topics are generally pretty light-hearted and yes, superficial. But hey, what else would you expect after seeing the blog title? =P I don't really talk about other aspects of my life too much, but those of you who have been long time readers had been put through all those wedding related posts! I got married about 1.5 years ago after dating about 3 years, but that fell apart quickly and I am now in the middle of a divorce... and I'm not even 30 yet! Now that is a whole other story that I'm not going to get into here. But I believe in the end this was the right decision. Though I miss Whiskey, the dog we had together who used to make quite a lot of appearances in my photos on this blog. I wish things had happened differently, but... c'est la vie.
When I'm not shopping or working out at the gym, I do have a stable and good paying job in finance. However, it does not fulfill me and I always wonder if I should just jump to a completely different field that I like better. But what would that be exactly? And how do I do that? There are many unanswered questions and it is scary, so I am just stuck in the same position now waiting to see if and when I'll gather up enough strength for a big leap.
So, all the above topics are likely to come up from time to time. I really appreciate you reading and sharing a part of my life with me. I've "met" many great, like-minded readers throughout the years that I never would have come in contact with otherwise. I love sharing my new shopping finds and fitness journey with you all! At times I am floored by your kindness and concern about my well-being. To think that we are all united by our common love of shopping! The superficial becomes not so superficial, and I am truly thankful for your support.
