Do You Ever Stop?

Do you ever stop and reflect from time to time away from the daily hustle and bustle? Taking time for “self” is always essential and at times very rewarding too. We all need a place where we can quiet our minds and tune out life so to speak. Its okay to enjoy a long walk alone, read an interesting  book, or even indulge yourself in  a much needed massage. No matter which outlet you choose be certain you are allowing yourself the satisfaction of embracing and absorbing something which does the body good. Treating yourself to a simple ice cream cone or a movie alone may be all you need to get yourself back on track before returning to life’s normal routine.

It’s okay to stop and take a shopping excursion too. You don’t always have to run out and purchase a ton of stuff or retrieve every article of clothing that Suzanne has in her well unorganized mess of a war zone she refers to as her closet or wardrobe cabinet. Sometimes its just necessary to grab a cute shirt to go with that old pair of jeans from last Spring that you can suddenly fit now!

Pushing away from the table  turning down that second slice of smothered steak with gravy and potatoes or saying “no” to that scrumptious and beautiful strawberry cheesecake Nana made from scratch two weeks ago has finally paid off! You deserve to treat yourself and enjoy at least some gratification that affords  you some form of  happiness. After all you’ve earned it. Now relish in it and define the inner you. It’s somewhere waiting to release and emerge fierce yet,  endlessly.

Now when you stop to reflect you may wanna pick up some comfortable shoes if you don’t already have a pair. Shoes are essential to any wardrobe and they certainly can compliment and or take away from an outfit. In essence we must make sure we purchase just the right ones!  Unlike me, I don’t stop long enough to wear comfy shoes and that is something I am definitely working on. Some neat shoes that come to mind are the  favorite of all times. Yeah, you guessed it right! The Converse Chuck Taylor are totally awesome!  They come in a multitude of colors and  designs and the price is somewhat affordable. If you find their price is completely out of your price range, you can always substitute for a basic low cut canvas shoe that mimics the Chuck.

I find it a great challenge to relax in my  cutesy heels but the good news is, I can always take them off!  Ha ha ha. Meanwhile ensure you have a pair of relaxation! Well, they are not actually called relaxation but they certainly can fool even me! The low cut canvas is so feminine and solely reminds your feet just how precious and valuable they really are. You can often find these cuties in various stores and or online websites. Just keep in mind if you want total relaxation your shoes and how your feet respond to you will make all the difference in the world. So this Summer stop and please, think comfy.

Oh, the night life! This is where the ladies wanna especially look their absolute best. This is your time to relax, kick back after working those crazy long hours at the office. You just wanna let your hair down, unwind and forget about work until well, perhaps the next century or two!  You’re in the mood for a cool, refreshing, sweet and fruity drink or, maybe you need one of those hard, smelly beverages that taste like gasoline. I guess it just depends on what type of week you’ve had. As for me, ” (Smile) I’ll have water with lemon please.”

One thing for sure is you wanna  be surrounded among your spouse or, perhaps that special someone (you just met) you cannot quit thinking about all day or maybe  around a group of  loving and vibrant  friends. You’ve been stuck in the office long enough listening to miserable Maureen complain about how awful her husband is and how she can’t ever get him to mow the lawn and then there’s “bitchy” Betty screaming every other second about how many “stiletto” nails she has broken. Who cares about Maureen’s lazy husband or Betty’s strangely painted artificial nails? For all you care Maureen can sign herself into a mental asylum and Betty can sell donuts from the trunk of her old run down pinto. Did I say Pinto? Well Honestly, It’s hard telling  what she’s driving. The car is so worn the  make and model signatures have  deteriorated.

One thing for certain is you want to enjoy this intimate evening rather you are with your spouse, date,  significant other or large  gathering of friends and while doing so,  you want to  look fabulous. Guess what? I know just the thing! You have a variety to select from. You can go with black. As you know black is always a go to color and a winner  in any circumstance. Let’s face it black says so much in our world of fashion. Black is dominant, it has a voice that’s sleek, yet sexy and very bold I must, add. A touch of silver or gold is acceptable too.

You can go from a simple pair of sexy jeans and a crop top or, a basic pair of shorts and a simple top with a long cover up for extra pizaz and style. Even a short, sassy yet sexy and inviting dress for the evening would work too. You see there are multiple factors to consider which solely depend upon who you will be entertaining and exactly which message you are attempting to send. Naturally if you’re gonna be with your date you wanna spruce up the “sexy” and I would recommend a hot and sultry dress but if you’re casually hanging out with girlfriends or work related pals you may wanna tone it down a bit to some super cute jeans, some cute comfy shoes and a cute electrifying  top. Some sassy shorts and matching top with an alluring and vibrant cover up should work too.

Let’s make certain our hair and make up are given special attention too and are not being neglected. I can envision a cute messy bun? Also http://www.maccosmetics.com has excellent and fabulous new colors for this season! Don’t forget manicure and pedicure especially ladies, if you plan on wearing sandals this summer! The fashion rule is feet must match hands and if you should so happen to break this detrimental fashion rule, the “Fashion Police” will warrant you. So please, please note you were warned!

Above all, look amazing like a million bucks no matter what you wear. As a word of caution  ensure Maureen and Betty are not on the guest list for the evening for that, could potentially ruin everything and then we are back to square one all over again. After all this is your “Sexy Summer Night”outing and you deserve to look amazing, be in the midst of great company and have a fabulous evening!

Summer Blast

2C313DA0-27FE-4DE6-8F36-C704AC030E3D

Let’s make this Summer a blast and rock with these “hot” new pieces for the season. I absolutely adore these cute little off shoulder tops with ripped jeans or even with a pair of sexy knee length capris. These babies totally rock! I cannot wait to emerge myself into one and sneak off on a  romantic date with my special guy. These tops are just so alluring and one cannot help but feel extra sexy when wearing one of them.  Polka dots are hot and one of my ultimate favorites!

However, a floral print design or even  solid are just as gorgeous and equally alluring. These tops are simply fun, suggestive sexy and not to mention super light weight. As we know, ripped jeans are still in! I have noticed a few of the (capri) style in a few exciting colors too. White, black, and  blue seem pretty common but I even noted red at Charlotte Russe. Kudos to Charlotte I just, haven’t seen any  other unique colors anywhere else. If you guys know of any place  that sells  other colors please share.   Nonetheless, you just cannot go wrong with an off shoulder top, ripped jeans and a pair of sassy sandals or perhaps a canvas shoe of your choice to accentuate your outfit.

Short chic dresses are definitely in too! I like to refer to them as an all purpose “must have“. They simply have so many purposes and you can incorporate them into any wardrobe any way you like! They’re perfect to just throw on and rush to the grocery, they’re kinda acceptable to run into the school and drop off little Johnny’s lunch he forgot , lingering on the kitchen island, or even an afternoon walk or lunch date in the park. They are notorious  for a trip to the beach too. You see, they just have countless possibilities! Who knows? You may be  able to seduce your spouse or significant other and persuade them into allowing you to have your way all day long. (Smile) This is exactly what you want, your way!

They allow you unthinkable freedom and total and complete relaxation. Awe, they feel so incredible,  they look amazing  and keep you cool all at the same time! I personally love, love the short style for the warm season. Be aware however, they can become easily addictive! Just imagine, no buttons, no constricting zippers or strings to concern yourself with. You’re simply just free to enjoy the beautiful weather and not be effected by the heat as much. Besides they are  super, super comfy and the freedom you have is limitless.  A short dress is a must have for this Summer’s wardrobe. Be sure to get one and you too will experience the Summer Blast!

“It’s Time”

It is definitely time to spruce up our wardrobes with exclusive and exciting new pieces! We  know what season this is and we wanna all look amazing right? It’s time for Amanda’s fabulous wedding and  Jeremy’s college graduation.

Awe, God forbid don’t forget Lisa’s major epic and  extraordinary dinner party she throws every single year. The one where everyone has to dress up just to spill wine and messy hors d’oeuvre  all over high priced amazing clothes but of course, Lisa insists!

You remember the all white party 2 years ago? Well, Lisa has not changed and ironically her parties haven’t changed much either. So I suggest, (as I like to say) we get wardrobe prepared.

Here are a few ideas you may consider wearing to the event and a few for  afterwards.  We all have Fashion Sense so no need to differentiate between the two. Send Jeremy and Lisa my love. Remember to smile, have lots of fun and keep in mind it’s time!

“Let’s Meet”

Attending any Business Meeting can  be intimidating or even challenging. Let’s face it, we just don’t always know what to expect. Nonetheless we should remain carefree and simply just be ourselves! Dressing for the occasion can give us the confidence we need to feel comfortable while allowing the order of events to take place.

While such meetings may be unpredictable, one thing for certain is being prepared. Preparation is essential so, take lots of notes! You won’t wanna forget important tasks or details especially, if you’re not the boss. Chances are you  wanna at least impress the boss right? Arrive a few minutes early because  we know early is  impressive and, if you’re being considered for that next  promotion  this may be your lucky day!

Nonetheless, the bottom line is to be prepared, prepared, prepared!  Proper rest the night before is a great place to start and good nutrition and hydration are other areas to certainly focus on. Make sure you put your best foot forward, bringing positive energy to the table while expecting a great outcome however, if the meeting is long, uninteresting and you’re freaking bored outta your mind…..think about “Genies” and how fabulous they are or take a nap. You deserve one….I’m just kidding ! Please do not take a nap!    Don’t forget dress for success and expect the best!

You  all know by now how much I love color! You also know how much I enjoy saving money! This Genie will shop various places so long as I’m getting good quality,  pizaz flavor and last but certainly,not least class!

I want glamour yet, I wanna keep my money too. So shopping Chicago Retail Stores and online clearance racks are no stranger to me.  I still love my “Goodwill deals  and it’s so difficult not to brag about them.  Although, riding  around  in search of these great “Goodwill” deals can be a challenge often times,  they are rewarding too.

I won’t say my shopping experiences don’t become intense because they do. Awe but, once I see all the bargains, I forget completely what the definition of intense ever  meant! You see the “Genie” remembers what she wants and the rest, well it kinda goes in her bottle and somehow it  stays there. Ummmm, you say, what bottle? My Genie bottle silly.  You knew…..you were just pretending!

Well guys it’s time to find out what crazy insane price I paid for this marvelous, fantastic and fabulous outfit. Of course, it was at “Goodwill” cause anywhere else it would be considered unheard of right? Well,  maybe not! Some clearance racks can be just as insane! We just gotta find them.

Summer-Fresh and Classy?

Hot, sleek ideas for the coming Summer months. This is so perfect and can be worn at a multitude of places! I can suggest the office if you desire that sexy look, I would say church if you’re into that sultry, free-spirited and comfy look. You could even get away with this while on a special lunch date. May be business or play? Perhaps even both! This “HOT” look just says so much without saying anything! I personally love, love this one! It’s just Genie ish. This sweet lil floral design solely depends on one’s individual personality and /or the specific 

reason or intention you’re wearing this cutie in the first place.

“Clearance Rack Keys”

Inside A JC Penney Co. Store Ahead of Earnings Results

JCP SALE

The ultimate key to remember when cruising the clearance rack is “what you need” as opposed to “what you want”. Ask yourself the question, would I want this shirt if it weren’t on sale? Is it really all that cute? What will I wear with it? Do I even have accessories, or am I willing to purchase  them in order to make this shirt pop? The key is if that ditsy shirt doesn’t pop without aided accessories, it’s probably not all that hot! In essence, you probably don’t want that shirt.

Be careful this season as you shop for cute pieces. The key is to look great while saving bundles of money! If you’re a lot like the “Genie” I’m sure you can think of a million things you’d rather do with your money than throw it away on unwanted clothes perhaps, you may wanna take the “Vintage Genie “on  an exotic trip (and spoil her with lots and lots of ice cream, cookies, and other delicious deserts ) or spend your life savings building that grumpy old man down the street a space ship so he can move far away into the orbit, right?

Nonetheless, no matter how you decide to spend your money, you don’t wanna purchase something that ends up buried in the back of your closet never to be touched or seen again. Be wise and use these keys as you enjoy your summer shopping. Oh and don’t forget, if you ever get bored or lonely while shopping, contact the “Genie” and we can shop together for countless deals and more! Lol. Enjoy!

Pink outingDon’t be afraid to dazzle with a little color in the upcoming Spring and Summer months. Colors allow attitude, charisma and can show off your extra beautiful and scrumptious attributes worshiped by many. Colors allow so much freedom and they say look at me the minute you enter the room!

Colors just say so many things without you saying a word. Colors  exhibit happiness, and encourage others to have a good time! So wake up to Spring and say hello to Summer with some beautiful pinks, yellows and even orange! Have fun and remember to smile too.
