Pantone's 2012 color of the year

Tango Tangerine wins the prize of being Panatone's color pick for 2012. Red-Orange, really? All I can say is YUCK! I won't be wearing this color due to my red hair but I'm sure it would look lovely on someone with blond hair. I've read that redheads can wear orange tones but they should wear them on their bottom half in a low dose such as a belt or shoes. I would think that advice would also fit for someone who shys away from bright colors but would like to have just a splash of color to brighten up a drab outfit during the cold winter. I do wear shades of red but think I will pass on the tangerine color this time around. You never know it might grow on me.

I must say that I do love the color in this flower print ♥

I Have Officially Retired My Ugg Boots For The Season

UGG.com
My Ugg boots are probably my favorite shoewear. I love them! My feet have a tendency to get cold but not while wearing these. I have read that men don't like them but I think they are cute as can be and my hubby doesn't complain. Yes, I even like them with shorts. Although I only wear them with jeans. With the sun finally coming out, sadly it's time to place them at the back of my closet.
Top: ModCloth Jeans: Levi's 515
The top I have on is the most softest thing I own and was purchased at my favorite internet clothing shop...ModCloth. It is the The-Great-Estate-Dress and is currently sold out. They have some really cool, unique items. This was listed as a dress but was a bit short for me since you can see through the bottom layer. I pulled it up a bit and it was perfect as a top with my Levis. It would be cute with leggings or a short skirt and tights too.  I'm still trying to get out of my Levis and into some more stylish outfits but I love them so. Still …

To be a dog person I sure have a lot of cats!

I have always considered myself a dog person because I like dogs better than I like cats. Cats are just too standoffish for me or at least the feral ones that I always have are. Very aloof and so irritating! 
I have had many dogs getting my first one at age 4. He was the runt of the litter and I named him Tootsie. He went everywhere I went growing up horseback riding, riding bikes or walking I remember he was always there. He lived until I was 22. I had multiple dogs sometimes and then I went for a few years with no pets whatsoever when I lived in the burbs. Then a few months after we moved back to the country my hubby wanted to buy me a puppy. I wanted a Bischon after watching a little one win the Westminster a few years beforehand. Her name was easy as I had been hearing the old song Some Velvet Morning by Lee Hazelwood and Nancy Sinatra. It kept popping up on my iPod so Fadra is her name. She is the best little furry buddy a girl could ask for!
I don't think I ever specificall…

A blue dress on a hot day

The weather lately has been rather cool but the last few days have been sweltering, muggy hot. I finally scheduled my vacation and I am so hoping for pool weather so I can wear my new swimsuit. It looks like summer will be almost over before my toes dip into the pool. I've been trying to get some things done which mostly have been online or indoors or it's been too cold. I've been updating all the sites I like so if you decide to follow or connect to me I will have some updated content. Since sites are so easy to access through my iPhone I am hoping to be able to keep up. Getting things done I have been putting off so it is feeling good to get some things accomplished. Rather than thinking any more  I have made decisions and following through which not only feels good but feels awesome is more like it!

Music Monday - Yoko Ono

Rolling Stone -Yoko Ono and friends bust a move in bad dancer video
I found this song by Yoko Ono and the Plastic Ono Band, Bad Dancer, to be one of those that you can't seem to get out of your head once you have heard it and that's ok because I actually think it is a catchy tune! As we all know Yoko is a performance artist and not a singer but she doesn't sound too bad here. The video is cute too with a few folks you might recognize. I haven't heard the whole album and probably never will but I'll give this song two thumbs up! And considering Yoko's age (80) all I can say is...YOU GO GIRL!

Music Monday - Kid Rock (Sweet Southern Sugar)

Kid Rock’s latest release Sweet Southern Sugar hit airwaves Friday, November 3. I anxiously awaited my postman on Saturday since I had preordered the CD. He didn't let me down and it arrived about noon.  Since I didn't have anything going on I popped it in and turned it up. I loved it from start to finish and didn't feel the urge to skip over any of the songs. That's what I call a great album! On the last few albums there's been at least one that I skip over and with the name of the new album I thought maybe he might slip completely over that sugar mountain. Luckily for me, most of the tracks are rockin' rock 'n roll which I love. Not much of a country fan so I was tickled! Now with a week of listening under my belt I'd have to say this is by far one of his best albums. 

I had already heard the first three songs and saw the videos for those. Greatest Show on Earth is a strong start with a pounding beat. The video is lots of footage from previous concer…

Not quite spring but almost...thankfully!

I am trying to get back into the swing of getting out into the real world on a daily basis once again here lately.  I seem to be adjusting pretty well, or I was until the time change went into effect. It always messes my sleeping up. So this week I am back to the adjustment period and making headway.  I am enjoying my new job and the weather has been pretty great.  Nice people and having a bit of extra cash is so so very nice. I even ordered myself a new purse from Modcloth. I need a bigger one to carry all my crap in and I am sick to death of my old Coach purse I've carried off and on for a few years, so why not treat myself a bit. I couldn't see one good reason why I shouldn't. So I did! Although I do plan to continue with my thrifty ways until I can get a few eggs back in the nest. Not much excitement lately. I've been on information overload but feeling good about getting back to work!  I've been thoroughly enjoying listening to the Hollywood Vampires on my dr…

Music Monday - Kenny Wayne Shepherd

Why yes, that is me with Noah Hunt, lead singer for the Kenny Wayne Shepherd band! This photo was taken at a local venue in 2009 when he was traveling solo with Blues Traveler. He's a Cincinnati boy so he wasn't far from home. Looks like we have both cut our bangs since then. I am thrilled to see he is back with Kenny Wayne for his new album, Goin' Home. I have been a fan since the beginning and I have seen them many times. One of my all time favorites to see live. I love love love the new album!

Concert Series - Edgar Winter, Johnny Winter and Rick Derringer

♥ Dress:  ModCloth (Sorry ladies this one is no longer available) ♥ Sandals:  endless.com-Naya Palomi Sandals ( I found myself wishing I had some red ones) ♥ Purse:  Coach

A few weeks ago I had the great pleasure of attending a concert with my son. We were second row at Johnny Winter, Edgar Winter and Rick Derringer. Edgar Winter has always been special to me. His show was the second one I saw as a teenager and I fell in love. Even named a dog after him that I got as a birthday present when I became 14. My son, being a saxaphonist himself, is also a big fan of Edgar's. Of course, we love Johnny and Rick too but Edgar was who I mainly wanted to see. Going to a concert was something we hadn't done in years so I was very excited to be able to spend the evening with him, just me and him :o) We had the best time talking about photography, music, movies and just fun stuff in general. He gets a big kick out of how excited I get when Edgar shows up! lol He works with our local schoo…
