Friday, I’m In Love With You

TheSydneyGirl Sketch

I was so honored when I saw the sketch of me created by the gorgeous and super talented Joelyne from The Sydney Girl.  Recently, I haven’t been feeling well physically and this totally made my day.  I absolutely adore it, and love Joelyne’s other sketches.  Being artistic is such a special talent that I wish I possessed.  Thanks so much J! 🙂

Below are pics from last weekend when we headed to the OC Fair in Costa Mesa, CA.OC FairI finally tried the standard fair-type foods — fried Twinkies, fried S’mores, fried Oreos and chocolate covered bacon.  The conclusion:  all of these things are better left alone, though I did enjoy the fried S’more the best.  Oh, and that chocolate and bacon together is not a good combination.   I was thinking maybe it would be a good savory/sweet snack, but was mistaken.  Yes, we also watched a pig show where the “smartest pig” jumped through hoops and spelled ‘ham’.  True story.

OC Fair2Here’s a shot of me and my twinny Mel.  Some people get confused when they visit her blog, Wrecked Stellar, and think they’re seeing double but we are fraternal twins.

OC Fair 3Oh yes, I’m wearing suspenders.  I haven’t worn these since elementary school, and for good reason.  I like them though and think they’re another easy way to spruce up a look.  I’m also sporting my Topshop bag and Dolce Vita Phoenix sandals.  So comfy.

OC Fair 4Mulling over the possibilities of a body wave, going back to my natural black hair color and chopping some length off.

OC Fair5

Cotton candyI can’t leave a fair or amusement park without cotton candy.  Pure sugar goodness.

Hope you all have a fun-filled weekend!

    OOoooh AND it is a Real Pleasure “to see in double” with a sister’s duo like Yours !!!
    ps: I think that Joelyne’s sketch perfectly captures your GLAMorous mood, this “epitome-esque SEXY Fresness” that your Radiant/KILLing smile marvelously illustrates . . .

    I love seeing photos of you and your sis together and who doesn’t love going to the fair?!

    I’m always looking for non-jewelry accessories to punch up an outfit. Suspenders are brilliant! I haven’t worn them since first grade, but it might be time to give them another shot.

    And don’t give up on chocolate and bacon yet. Vosges makes the best chocolate bacon bar that might change your mind on the combination.
