Retail Therapy

Oh yes I need it! I was yesterday at a meeting for 4 hours talking about next years South Beach Wine and Food Festival... can't wait to tell all of you everything about it but for now I've got to work on it with a hugely talented team. Additionally, my computer is at the computer spa" since yesterday and I'm making this post on another one but i'll be picking it up today fully upgraded.



I want to add some sparkle to my wardrobe so I guess some sequined and bejweled pieces will add it without making me look like a disco ball. Of course a dress is always welcome especially one with some feminine details along with some killer shoes and handbag




Finally you're never complete, matter the occasion, without the perfect fragrance. I love to go perfume shopping but have to be very careful because I always end up with my allergies attacking me with all their furry.


Today's question is: which is your sweetener of choice? Thanks for all your responses so far... very illuminating!

Have a fantastic day and see you back tomorrow from my computer!

  1. Beautiful wardrobe inspiration! I love, love that cardigan with casual sparkle. I needed some retail therapy too and to satisfy my craving, I went on a Ross binge today before work...always walk out happier =) As for sweetener, I've sworn of artificial sweetener and am back to using real sugar because I got a little scared of hearing about all the chemicals in artificial sweetener =/ Now I just need to work on actually not using so much real sugar!

  2. Gorgeous choices!!!

    I choose raw sugar, or depending on the dish, fruit sometimes can add natural sweetness eg strawberries, grapes etc

  5. I like apple juice in my muffins, honey in my chai but I'm a white sugar girl if my coffes too bitter. Thankfully it rarely is.

  6. I love that sweater in the first image!
    And I don't like sweetener at all. If I had to choose it would be pure cain sugar, but I really don't like sweetening anything like coffee or tea!

  7. lovely picks!
    I use sweetener tablets, which are not really good, I know... but I do not consume sugar.

  8. I love sequins in small doses and paired with more rugged, earthier items! My sweetener of choice is honey -- in everything or plain on a spoon... yummy!

  9. i've been off sugar for over a month now.
    if i sweeten tea, i use honey. other than that - nothing.
    that being said, i don't like the fake sweeteners at all. i just don't think they taste good.

  10. Great finds!! My sweetener of choice? I'm trying to live sweetener free, but if I do have anything, I have real sugar. Better a little of the real than a ton of fake. But I haven't had any in weeks. It's an occasional thing. (Having one of those sweet teeth where one bite leads to ten, I'm abstaining in the hope of losing weight!)

  12. That red dress is a knockout. And the black shoes with it? Definitely.
    That's so cool you get to be part of the South Beach Food & Wine Festival -- I'm looking forward to hearing more about it.
    As for sweetners, I use sugar if I really need something. The type of sugar (brown, white, or turbinado) depends on what I'm eating. Usually for oatmeal, I got with brown sugar. And if I'm having yogurt, honey is my choice sweetner.

  17. Your picks are so amazing! I love them all (and a big fan of Fresh and Via Spiga shoes :)). Thanks also for the awesome list you always have. I cannot wait to hear about this event!
    For sweeteners, my favorite is honey - the organic and raw ones especially :)

  18. Great picks here! I love that necklace with a little sparkle to it :) That red shirt dress is perfectly adorable as well. Hope you love your new computer once you pick it up!! Wheee! xo

  19. Ooh, we are so alike! I too am seeking out sequins to add a bit of sparkle to my daily style!

    And my sweetner of choice is Splenda, I believe. I just know that it has a yellow packet. :P

  20. I want to say agave syrup because it's in my cupboard and I know it's a wiser choice but truthfully I reach for the turbinado more often than not.

  21. Retail therapy indeed-sounds like this week is just as hectic as the last!

    As for sweeteners, I must confess that it depends on what I'm sweetening! I prefer agave in cocktails and savory dishes that require a little sweet, honey for most teas and the classic white sugar for English breakfast tea. We don't have any artificial sweeteners in the house, though-I just won't have it!

  27. i love the necklace, perfect to glam up any outfit! and the shoes are killer. As far as sweeteners I am not big on sweeteners (not in my coffee, or lemonade) but if i use a sweetener i usually go for brown sugar.
