The much awaited Zara sale is finally here. The sale kicked off last week and unlike any other Zara addict I am making the most of it. 

Zara is a pioneer among 'fast fashion' companies, that essentially imitate the latest runway trend and speed their cheaper versions in store. With it's ability to translate the runway trends into realway trends, in the shortest turnaround time, Zara is becoming the fashion mecca for savvy shoppers. I have always loved Zara and the latest at the Zara is making me bonkers.....

The sale can be a bit overwhelming, but if you do a focused-shopping, you'll score the best for a lot less. 

1) BLAZERS/OUTERWEAR- one item of clothing I recommend getting at Zara sale is their blazer/outerwear.  In case you weren't aware, Zara makes the best blazers around fashion town. The cut, the fit, the fabric : everything is perfection. So if you see anything, hugely marked down, grab it before it's gone. I have had luck buying a winter coat for mere fifteen bucks.....

Believe it or not, the first thing that gets hit when you turn 30 is your skin. Ever since I touched down this milestone, my skin has changed from oily to combination and now almost dry. I just cannot go one single day without reapplying my moisturizer multiple times during the day. Thanks to the beauty of being in your 30's ( all pun intended) and my intolerance to gluten, that has rendered my skin dull and dry in the past year.

I went back and forth between different products meant for aging skin. It did take me a few trials and breakouts and allergic reactions, but after all that skin atrocity, I finally made peace with a few products, that not only suit my sensitive skin, but are effective too.

The first one is this VII CODE, T2 OXYGEN EYE CREAM - this is like a "Genie in a jar". It does all the magic you need around your eye area. The eye and the area around it is the most sensitive part of your face. As you age, this delicate area is the first to show signs of aging. So, the sooner you start taking care of it, the better it will be.

4th July is almost upon us and it's the time again to get your grills all cranked up and your favorite red, white and blue pieces dusted off and made ready to see some fireworks. But if you ain't the grilling types, there are other ways you could partake the 4th July celebrations.

1) GO THE SARTORIAL ROUTE- don a red, white & blue look. Go for the classic american look by pairing a white button front blouse with a pair of blue denims and top it off with a killer pair of red heels or a sweep of red lipstick.

2) FOURTH JULY OUTDOOR BBQ/PICNIC - a mid week picnic is always a good idea. Plan a potluck picnic, if planning everything yourself seems tedious. Have a plan and let your guests of the same. This will help them decide what to  bring to the party. If you have access to a pool, then go for a splash theme. Make sure you have plenty of towels...- whomp whomp !

Today is the first day of summer vacation, and I am already feeling the pressure. With a first grader in tow, it is sure going to be a lot of fun, craft, painting, swimming, camping, drama and challenges too. With two jobs and one stay-at-home-during-summer-vacation kid, it will definitely be worth testing my time management skills.

As if this was not enough, there are gazillion other thoughts racing through my mind::
  • can everyday be a Sunday, when there is no alarm, no early waking up ?
  • can we eat breakfast all day? Pancakes, eggs, cereals are everyone's favorite in my family and are the easiest and fastest to cook. 
  • can God give me a few extra hands? All that summer vacation work could definitely use extra helping hands. If not this, then can I import a maid from India ?? 
  • is it okay to shower post lunch ? I am a morning person, who prefers showering early during the day, but is it occasionally acceptable to shower half day ?
What do you think, ladies ??
