Such a fun weekend, & a long exhausting day at work. My legs & feet are aching after being in heels all weekend. So as not to do a half ass update, I'm drinking wine & passing out! Tomorrow my neglect will end.


The Day Has Arrived!!

Tonight is my Birthday Party!
Catch me at Acme Lounge celebrating my 22nd!
166 Valley St, Providence RI!



Someone saw my blog recently & invited me to join Lookville, an invitation-only fashion site. Users can post looks, comment on others, & answer any other questions regarding fashion. I finally got a chance to set up mine today! Check me out SimoneLesley on Lookville. They also gave me 5 invites, so let me know if you're interested!

At this point in my life, Paulo Coelho is my favorite author.

May Flowers

Today was pretty exciting. I finally purchased my Birthday Party dress from Bebe. No further details will be discussed about that!  After that went to get  a pedicure from Foxy Nails & Spa in Seekonk. I think they do they BEST deluxe pedicures around, (Thank you Mommy!). I was tempted to ask my nail tech if he was married. 

Once home, I decided to play backyardigans since it was super nice out. I was in search of a frog I could swiftly turn into a Prince. Alas, I will have to try again tomorrow, weather permitting.

1 More Day

My birthday party is in one day. I haven't had a birthday party since I was in 4th grade & Pinky the Clown came to 408 Hartford ave. I am super excited to be in a beautiful dress surround friends & family (my cuzzo from FL is coming!) that I love, and a bottle of champagne in my right hand.

Blue Eyes

One of my friends burned me a copy of "Blue Eyes Meets Bed-Stuy". I'd never heard of the mixtape by Cappel & Smitty, but he knew I loved Sinatra so he gave it to me. Since my iTouch is still at Killa Kels, & I can't listen to the radio for more than 25 minutes at a time, I decided to pop it in again, & I've fallen in love. My favorite part are the Sinatra intros to the songs. Infact, my favorite is when a quote from Pal Joey is used where Sinatra says "It's gonna take more than a gold band and a two-buck license...to make an honest man out of a bum like me." Still applies to most men.

I need to get to Cali.

Bathing Beauty

Vogue Nippon May 2007
An editorial full of sequins & swimwear, need I say more? Hello Summer.
Behati is a Nambian model, also a former Victoria Secret Model. She was discovered in a supermarket in Cape Town South Africa. (I think I'm going to frequent the Shaws in EP a little more...never know.) She's walked for Chanel, H&M, Hugo Boss, & Marc by Marc Jacobs. Not to mention she's only 21. I love this editorial because the water perfectly compliments her pieces. Plus, I love anything sparkly.

Let's Go On An Escapade, Baby.

Her suits with the contrasting background make me want to wander with hopes of getting lost.
I swear 65% of women from Brazil turn out to be models, Chiminazzo is clearly no different. Born to Italian & German parents, but raised in Brazil she was discovered at 13! Are you surprised she's also been a Victoria's Secret model? It's no wonder my favorite fashion house (Yves Saint Laurent) had chosen her to walk for them. Might I add, that grey Gucci swimsuit is everywhere. I'm a small please.

Go Team USA! An American from Illinois.
Safe to say, she's the next big thing. Which reminds me I need a new bathing suit...any suggestions?

Hello Sweetheart

Miranda Kerr
Elle US June 2010

She's so damn cute, & I'm so glad Miranda has branched out from doing editorials in men's magazines.
The places Victoria's Secret will take you. I think my favorite photo is of her in all nude pieces. I wish it wouldn't be looked at as ridiculous to walk around the streets of RI in an ensemble like that. I guess that's what the weekends are for.



Today marks my twenty second birthday. 
I am so fortunate to have people in my life who truly & genuinely care about me.
Thank you to the MNWC for starting my birthday off properly,
Thank you for all the texts, tweets, bbms, & calls.
& Thank you Mom & Dad, it cannot be said enough.
I'm pretty sure my dad is going to cry tomorrow...well today, 
I am so lucky to have wonderful family, & supportive friends.


I Love College

Had an amazing weekend, which ended off even better celebrating with the URI graduates at Paragon. Shoutout to the Senator Mr. Millz for throwing a banger & sending the graduates off correctly! It was also the first time I was able to party with most of my LFTDR family, FINALLY! Congratulations again to everyone who walked across the stage this weekend!

Kate Moss Vogue Paris June/July 2010
Photographed by Mario Sorrenti
Next to Naomi Campbell, Moss is one of my favorite models (I get super excited when I see them photographed together). Kate has been a boss for years now, & has been wooed by some of the most amazing men in Hollywood ie Johnny Depp. I don't think I've ever seen an editorial featuring Kate Moss I haven't liked.
