Last night I went to an event my friend Blagica put on called the Diva series. Had a great time meeting new people and listening to “The fireman and the Shrink” talk about sex and dating. I also finally met Kristen Nicole of Mashable and she rocks just like everyone said. 🙂

Free drinks, fun ladies AND they had the coolest shwag!

Check out this video I made of me exploring my beauty assistant by Sephora.

I just bought these Clarks “Toni” boots and a Jessica Simpson “Kane” tote from Zappos.com and I’m SO excited!  They should be arriving by Tuesday, just in time for me to wear them to go clubbing with my friend Eva. 🙂

That brings me to another reason why I’m excited.  Eva’s coming to visit!  She should get here this afternoon depending on how full the flights are.  Eva is my best girlfriend and I love her to pieces.  I can’t wait to show her around Chicago.  Plus stay tuned because Eva’s agreed to let me take some pictures of her in my home studio.  Woohoo!  Finally a third person for me to photograph.  Eva’s also absolutely gorgeous so that will make me look like a good photographer. 🙂

Ok now back to work!  Today is going to be a busy day with the last episode recorded before the writer’s strike of Desperate Housewives airing tonight.

I had a fabulous afternoon. Yesterday I cleaned out all my drawers and closet and am giving away three large garbage bags of clothes. Y’know what that means? Room for NEW STUFF! As I sorted through my clothes I realized I have a lot of young looking stuff so I decided to go out today and get some more mature jeans shirts.

I found some great deals at Express.  All their jeans are buy one get one half off right now AND they have sexy button up shirts that are marked as $50 but are selling for $15.

Also while at the mall I tried out a new spa.  Well it’s not new, but it’s new to me.  I needed a new wax lady because the little place I went to in Evanston butchered me last time.  Anyway tell me what you think of my new eyebrows.  I think I’m happy with the job she did.

Then to top off my fabulous day we got Chinese food from Tein Li Chow.  I’m being so bad right now.  I’m eating the last little bits of it and it’s past midnight.  I’m going to have such a tummy ache.  Oh well.  So yummy!

If you haven’t already done so head on over to Victoria’s Secret and check out all the great deals they’re having right now online.  My stuff was delivered today and I’m VERY happy with at all.  It was a bit of a gamble buying dress pants online without trying them on but they were so cute and cheap I couldn’t resist.  AND they fit perfectly.

Here’s what I bought:

An adorable “Romper” for $19.99


The picture on the left is the one I took a few minutes ago.  If you click on it you’ll see that there are stars embroidered on it.  The picture from VS however doesn’t show the stars.  I was a bit surprised by it but I think it’s still really cute.  Not their fault though.  I should have read their fine print about the garment.  They mention the stars.  Oh well it’s still REALLY comfy and adorable.

Now the babydoll is even more beautiful and sexy in person so don’t get me wrong, I’m very happy with it.  But they said on the site that it comes with a “Matching silk panty” which you can see on the right in the picture I took.  The thing is mesh and feels like it’s made out of sandpaper not silk.  Plus the color doesn’t really match the rest of the babydoll so don’t buy this if you really want a sexy matching pair of panties.  Then again the baby doll is amazing so buy it anyway and forget the g-string.

The Kate Fit bootcut pant for $26.99


These are my new favorite pants!  They make my butt look amazing and they fit perfectly.  LOVE LOVE LOVE them!

Cut-out racerback Bra Top for $15.00

V236439 V236440_J55

I bought the black version of this tanktop about a month ago for double the price and loved it so much that when I saw the sale price was tempted to buy one in each color!  It’s the perfect shirt to wear with jeans to go dancing.  It’s cut long so if you wear low rise pants your butt crack won’t show and it has a handy shelf bra so you don’t need a bra.  Added bonus is you can dress it up or down.  It has a high sexy neckline that looks fantastic under a suit jacket.

Keyhole Bra Top for $18.99

Another repeat for me was this keyhole top that I also bought last time.  I have worn this shirt SO much since I bought it I decided to get one in black.  I can’t decide which color I like better now.  Plus it comes in 2 more colors.  I might just have to watch for it to go further on sale so I can get it in blue and white.  hehe  LOVE this shirt btw…

Infinity Edge™ metallic push-up for $19.99 and matching v-string for $5.99


This is extremely sexy!  I love the metal details but to make the bra and panties also practical you can switch the chain straps for normal ones and unhook the chain on the panties.  And despite the metal this is a very comfortable set.

Essential bodysuit with contrast collar and cuffs for $29


I love this shirt/bodysuit.  Forget having to tuck in your button up shirt.  This shirt snaps on the bottom and fits flawlessly in your shirt with no tuck lines.  Very cool.

And that’s pretty much it.  Got a few other bras and panties.  Check out the sale!  So many other great deals on all their clothes and bras.

Can you tell I love Victoria’s Secret?
