4 days till weekend...

I know, it's only Monday. But the past weeks have been dragging. Not sure why, but I have such a hard time getting out of bed in the morning. Hm maybe because I have to get up at 5.30. Either way, weekend cannot come fast enough! Don't you agree??

Pants: H&M
 Ring: H&M
 these pants are my favorite! Scored them at H&M on black friday, I bought 2 pairs :-D
 love this color!
  Nails: Pure Ice-Strapless

Here are my nails from last week:
Pure Ice - Superstar (white)
Pure Ice -Don't you wish (Glitter)
Pure Ice- Strapless (Blue)

 This was the first time I painted my nails white....

We took Diego to a Park on the beach on the weekend. Surprisingly it was not raining on Saturday, so here in Seattle we have to take opportunity of each rain free day :) You never know how long it lasts ;)
Little man had a blast. He is so cute :) Too cute for word....

Buenas Noches,

OPI- "yodel me an my cell"
OPI- "What's a tire jack" on my tips
I used reinforcement labels for my tips, I found that they work better than tape.

We also made a bigger purchase this weekend. Traded in our BMW 745i for a 2012 Kia Optima Turbo SX. It took us probably over a year to find a decent replacement for the Beamer. I mean after all it's a luxury car and I had a hard time liking any car after driving the BMW for such a long time. I got spoiled. I was pretty sure I was going for a German car. Last weekend it was between the new VW Passat and the OPTIMA. Hubby and I were really really impressed by the optima. It has exact the same features and more as our luxury BMW. I drove the new car home today and OMG it is so fast. I am not sure if I will miss our Beamer, I am thinking no. I had just reached 100k miles and everything on that car is sooo expensive. Oil change was 200 bucks every time. I am glad we have a brand new car and I won't have a heart attack anymore every time I have to go to a car shop :-D
So here is my old car....bye bye baby. I had some great times, I will miss you but it was time to move on :) Oh my now that I see the pic I wonder what is gonna happen to it :(

and here is my new love.
2012 KIA Optima SX Turba

Don't you love the color?? They have only 3 in this particular color in the whole state of WA. I got one of them :)
This weekend it's gonna get pimped LOL

Nitey nite,

Snowy day in Seattle

We finally got some snow here in Seattle. And we got dumped on GOOD. Did not make it to work today. I am crazy for even trying to get to work. (on a normal day my commute is almost 1 hour) It probably would have taken me 3 hours. 
So I was basically lazy all day, enjoyed some quality time with my dog, who absolutely loves dog. I actually took him down to the beach LOL. It was a great opportunity to let him have fun off leash with no one else around.
Here are pictures of today early morning

View from  my front door around 6 am :)

Diego loving the snow

Down the street that is actually the Puget Sound, but you can't tell because it's all a grey mess

He definitely loves it...

what a dork, he was chasing snow balls 

And now I will keep calm and drink some tea :)

OPI Swiss Collection


did you have a nice weekend? Mine was pretty good. My husband finally convinced me to go back to the Gym :-D And I have to say it felt good. I hope I can find more time or energy to go more often.
Yesterday we spent a lovely day with some friends in Seattle. We went to a fabulous italian restaurant called "Tutta Bella" Being from Italy I can honestly say that their Pizza is really close to authentic :)

My friend had a nice surprise waiting for me. She got me the Mini Nail polishes from the OPI Swiss Collection! I love it :) They're so tiny and cute LOL

My first color try:
Lucerne-tainly look marvelous 
3 coats with OPI quick dry top coat
Ring finger: P2 crackling in blue thunder
no flash

A snow storm is supposed to hit Seattle today. We shall see. So far not really. Maybe I wake up tomorrow and I am snowed in and can't go to work :-D My commute is almost 1 hour :( 
Can you believe it, I am STILL sick! I cannot get rid of this caught! I have been coughing so much, my ABS are sore. Basically I am on my way to get a six pack :-D

I can hear someone snoring, my Diego. He always snores when he is tired. It's too cute :-D He is totally passed out hehe. I love him. How can you not???

Gotta love Seattle

I think this picture says it all :) Shot this morning. Cold but clear blue sky. I love this city! Seattle is always so green and blue. This is probably why I love the color blue :)
This is what I wore today at work. Casual blue :)
 Top: Primark
Jeans: Tally Weijl (I love their Jeans, somehow these are the only ones that fit me perfectly)
Shoes: Jumex

Isn't that shirt cute? Primark will be my new favorite store in Germany, after Tally Weijl of course ;)

Got these shoes in Germany as well. The store was closing and had everything on sale and on top of that:
50% on your entire purchase, I ended up paying 8 Euros LOL

Scarf: Primark
I am still a little sick :( sniff

It has been really cold in Seattle lately, they are saying we should be getting snow soon. I am skeptic and I LOOOVE winter but I don't need any snow here. Commute is crazy with snow. I am ready for summer :) Well maybe not, I have had my share of summer this winter, after being in Puerto Rico in ♥ (looooove) in November. 
I wish we could go back at least once a month LOL

Us in Puerto Rico

Sigh! Enough dreaming. Time to get ready to go to bed. Thank god tomorrow is Friday :)

Hasta Luego,

Feeling Better OOTD

Hey Ladies, 

I am finally feeling A LOT better. My ear infection is almost gone and I finally got some much needed sleep last night without waking up coughing all the time. YES. 
Here is an outfit of the day. I have so many clothes, and I don't even know when to wear them or remember that I even have them. I have 2 closets, so sometimes I just forget that I even have certain pieces. What a shame :D
My OOTD, I have not worn this skirt since summer 2010, thinking I could only wear it in the summer. I was wrong! Lovely with boots :)
Shirt: C&A
Skirt: Burlington
Belt: C&A
Tights: H&M
Boots: Aldo

 I need a new mirror, this one is too small :D And I am only 5'2

Ring: F 21
Polish: OPI "Iris I was thinner"

Nowadays, I am taking most of my pictures with my iPhone. However, I have recently asked my hubby for the Canon Rebel Cam :-D Hoping for it on V-Day. We will see if he remembers, I just keep posting pics of it on his Facebook lol. You know men, you can give them so many hints about what you REALLY want, but they still have no clue :-/ 
Time for bed. This time I am closing this post with a picture of me and my love Diego :)

 Buenas Noches,

Dupe Alert

Hola Chicas, 

I can't believe I am still sick. Instead of getting better it gets worse :( I have a horrible dry cough, my right lymph nodes are swollen, which causes a pain in my ear when I swallow. I am taking antibiotics and I hope I will feel better tomorrow since the weekend is over and I have a TON of work to do in the office :( 

I did a cool NOTD this weekend with a color that I bought in Germany. I am sure all you nail polish fanatics know about the Deborah Lippman polishes. Well I always had my eye on " Across the universe" but didn't want to pay 20 bucks for the bottle. Online I came across some dupes, but I couldn't find any in store. I knew essence has a dupe, but its not available in the US. When I went to Germany I remembered about the dupe and I was hoping it was still in their current collection. AND THERE IT WAS!! One last bottle left. I paid 1,65 Euros (maybe 2 USD)
And the result is pretty amazing :)

"Blue Addicted"

1 coat over black. Pretty dense :) I will try it without a base coat next time.

ok, I think I will lay down now. Being sick SUCKS!!!! :(

Sick, but not too sick for a NOTD

Hey fellow bloggers,

I am back from Germany boo ooh :( We finally landed in Seattle on Tuesday 10pm after being stuck in North Carolina for a day. My DH and I had to be back at work on Tuesday, but that didn't work out so well. LOL.
And now I caught a cold too!1 I feel like poo. I drank about 10 cups of tea at work, I have a terrible dry cough and I almost coughed out my lung at work LOL I hope I will at least get rid of the cough by tomorrow. I must be super annoying to my co-workers.
Either way, I have been too busy to get depressed about being back in the States. Usually, I am super depressed when I leave my family, but I have been caught up in work and I guess that's ok.
I still need to swatch some nail polishes that I bought in Germany.
Here is one of them: ESSENCE IN STYLE. I topped it with ESSIE MATTE OVER YOU.

no flash

I love the color. Really pretty. I have got to say, ESSENCE came a long way ever since I moved to the US (4 years) I never used to buy their cosmetics, but i gotta say, I am impressed by their selection and quality. For those who don't know ESSENCE, I think its is kind of like Wet and Wild, just a little bit more selection, but price wise the same. I think I will keep up with the colors on their website and ask my sister to mail me some more polish :D I paid 1.25 Euros for the polish, that is less than 2 bucks. Not bad :D

Well, I can feel the tiredness creeping up on me. Jet Lag, 9 hour time difference :(
Closing this post with a picture of my two loves :) Aren't they darling?????? Excuse my husbands Steelers hat...ewwwwwwww ;)
Buenas Noches,
