Jcrew Aficionado event review

Just a few weeks ago I went to my first Jcrew Aficionado event at the Brea mall. I was really excited about this because it was the perfect opportunity to meet people and save money all at once. Sadly it wasn't all I had expected, nothing like the D.C. events which had lots more attendants and a lunch afterwards.
However I was able to have a personal shopper to help me out in the fitting room her name starts with an M. and she has really long hair. She just happened to be wearing the same blazer that I was eyeing, the velvet eden blazer.

Maybe I will have to plan the next J.C.A. event so that I can tell more of my friends who had no idea what I was talking about. Its like a secret club kinda col, just wish it was more like the D.C. version.
So here we are in our matching Blazers! I'm contemplating wether or not to keep it, kinda expensive and I'm no rich girl.

Hey, darling! That color is TDF on you... :)

I am so bummed that the event wasn't all you had wanted...our DC events are so crazy that we have to have auxillary outings just to get to know one another. I wish you were here, but I also know that your weather there beats ours hands down, so I can imagine you would never want to leave.

(But if you do find your way out this way, let's get together and have a rip-roaring good time in honor of your trip east...)

Talk soon...

I'm sorry the Shop & Share event was a bit disappointing to you. I wanted to stay longer and chat with fellow JCAs but since I had two little ones I had to get going.
As I was planning the event, I did not mention the event to the store manager or any of the PS/SA as a "JCA shopping event." I just mentioned that I will be posting it on a blog to get some people together.
I think if I had mentioned it as a "JCA event" it may have been canceled by the corporate as it happened to KOP event last week...

Anyways, it would be great if you can plan a S&S event at the Brea store next time. :-)

The jacket looks fabulous on you! I tried it and it didn't fit me quite well.

Dina, I would love to hang out with you and the DC crew sounds like a nice group of women. Its really hard to make friends in Socal since everyone is kinda on their own time schedules and I work till 1am alot now. And yes the weather is nice here but my family and I feel like we are in FLoridaaaaghhh!

JCMAMA, Thanks soo much for planning the JCA event a few weeks ago, I understand why you had to leave early.

Earlier that week I stopped by Jcrew and asked about the event and the manager wasnt very excited about it. I woudl think they would love to have people like us promoting the company they work for.

I will see what I can do to plan another event and get some ideas from you too.
Take care.

Claremont Village

My mom and I have been going to Claremont forever now, and if you follow this blog than you know it too! It's a cute town that's near the foothills, has colleges, food, beer and cute shops to wonder in. 

We decided to take Loki with us that day, and it was so damn this the hottest summer in a while? Or do I just forget the prior years...eaither way it was on fire in Claremont that day. 

We stumbled upon a taco shack that was undeniably cute! I'm working on finding the name of it, I can't seem to find it on any listing.
Over by the restroom by the taco shop there was the wood csrbed donkey so we had to take pics with it! Poor Loki was so hot that day! 
Enjoying chipa and salsa at the taco shack.

A few things I do that make me feel like me

I start work in two hours so that means I have just enough time to start writing a blog post. Its been an inspiring week and I feel like there are signs from all over the universe guiding me into the right direction. I have had some meaningful time spent alone as well as with other people. I'm trying to have "more fun" and not worry so much about the little things. A few weeks ago I saw a psychic and she told me a ton of things, it was super strange to feel so vulnerable and unsure if what she was saying was true or not. 

The things she said that made me think... Ill be a mother, not now but in a few years. That I will be a successful Business woman, because I have vision and drive. That I have a dark spirit following me, That I want to be happy but that I only will be if I let whatever happened to me in my past go free.
As you can see it was pretty intense, full of tears and I was scared, but I knew that she was right because for a long time I had been unhappy and it was…

Village at La Floresta Walking Tour

Hi y'all it's been a few weeks since the opening of the new shopping center in Brea "Village at La Floresta" and I've finally had some time to share my experience and photos that I took that day!

As some of you may know, this new shopping center has been in the works for a few years now and is part of a whole new community of new custom homes and even a retirement home as well as a swimming club all under the umbrella of La Floresta, a master planned community.

One of the big draws for this new community is the fact that they had a whole foods as part of their shopping centers new tenants, and us crazy people in North oc have been having to go out to Tustin to get our fix of pre-peeled oranges and lemon infused water, I do people really buy that crap anyway? Wenever I go it's usually to buy something fun from the beauty section or the salad bar!!! Yum!!!

When I went out to see the new location a few weeks ago I went in on the opening day! Crazy I t…
