a glimmer into the life of a mum who loves fashion, decor and prosecco

We are off!

We are headed to Palm Springs for the weekend today at noon and while there are some fires out that way and there are thunderstorms in our future we DON'T care!!! 

I am so focused on relaxing, napping, sleeping in, eating great food, watching movies, and reading magazines poolside with a margarita in hand.  Of course I packed enough clothes for 2 weeks but hey! I don't get away much.  One thing I had to do because it always makes me feel so much sexier in a bikini and on vacation was get a TAN! So I hit up Yelp and found an awesome girl in our neighborhood who does it out of her home and I love the results. . . not orange! Here is a bad iPhone pic!

Perfect Palm Springs luggage - Canvas & leather tool bag (sold out) and my weekender from Costa Rica

Of course the closer it gets to go time, the guiltier I feel about leaving my 2 little sweetpeas . . . not sure about other mama's but being a working mum I find it so much harder to take the time for myself and Mr. Hotpants because the weekends are SO precious with our girls since we work all week . . . . BUT I know that we need to devote time to ourselves and each other so once in a while won't hurt. Plus the girls are going to get some quality Grandma "spoiling" time!

 my left and right ventricles . . . my full heart!

Oh and speaking about Christmas . . . lol, like my uncanny ability to smoothly move into a new subject! . . . I keep running by Joseph's gorgeous store front on my morning runs and it has me fantasizing about Winter! Look at these outfits . . . sheer perfection . . . leather leggings, furry vests, and layers!

Which in turn brings me to my favorite Winter accessories . . . BOOTS!  I happen to be the very lucky sister to my baby sis, who works for Vans & Reef (same parent company VF) and Christmas came EARLY for me!!! Look at these amazing new boots by Reef that I got from her!!! Not only are they beautfiul in person but they have their Bella Costa quilted footbeds which are seriously like walking on clouds!!! Do yourself a favor and try a pair on; you will fall in love and be addicted (they do flats too!)  

Have a fantastic weekend . . . you can follow me on Instagram (poppymum) for weekend updates!
