Beautiful Distractions No. 2

Nothing like some mid-week distractions to really pass the day away. Am I right? Every morning and evening I’m perusing Pinterest, reading blog posts, scanning new catalog and magazine arrivals and oooohing and aaaahing over pretty things. Sometimes I share them on Snapchat (like my spa night last Saturday or my blunders in self tanning), but most of the time, you never get to hear what I’m really loving right now…this very instant. That’s what Beautiful Distractions is all about.

Cristha Fuentes and Her Pink Oxfords at UTZ market

One day while scrolling through the #ihavethisthingwithpink community, I came across an Instagram capture of the most magnificent pair of shoes. Not just any pair of shoes mind you, but a pair of leather pink oxfords. Clutch the pearls and be still my heart. Somebody fan me and give me my credit card ASAP!!!!! I need these in suckers my life. I was crushing hard and my little ticker was just a beating. Mission “Must Find These Shoes” was in full effect.

Immediately I tapped the image looking for tags. Nothing. I started Googling pink oxfords. Hmmm, broaden the search for pink shoes…ya no, only heels popped up…I wanted oxfords…pretty pink oxfords. I couldn’t believe it, I was coming up empty handed. Not being one to give up easily, and after a bit more frantic stalking searching, I finally found the designer and maker — Cristha Fuentes. I immediately stalked her on Facebook emailed her and begged her politely asked where I could buy a pair for myself.

New Year’s Eve Etiquette Guide to Hostess Gifts

When I hosted my very first New Year’s Eve party, I was just past the age of keg stands in a basement. At the time, I was dating a guy who was a bit older than me, and his friends were invited. Friends who had apparently read the etiquette guide to hostess gifts. One by one they walked through the door handing me pretty packages pretty packages containing cheese boards, wine, scented candles, fancy soaps, and champagne! I’m sorry what!?!?! No one had told me about hostess gifts. The only gift I had been bringing to parties was a beer bong. This gift-giving thing had made all the cooking and cleaning and running around nonsense a whole lot more tolerable. Bring. It. On.
