Things get rather panicky this time of year as my mind is a constant whirl of things to do, places to go and wondering how I will find the time to take care of everything. Every so often I realize that it's okay to just sit down, put my feet up, light a candle and take a bit of time for myself to just breathe and relax. What could be sweeter than a surprise visit by someone bearing a gift? It makes me feel warm and fuzzy when out of the blue I receive a prezzie!! And this was a really fun one too as it was wrapped up in a lovely scarf from India and enclosed was a variety of chocolate circles along with instructions on making hot chocolate. I am always thankful when a friend takes the time to think up something special to give to me.

The new era of counterfeiting has become almost impossible to detect. Here are 3 easy tips on how to not get scammed. 1. Check the authenticity policy when buying. If buying a used luxury item from a website or a consignment store, carefully read or ask for its sales policy. We make sure that when taking items there is a receipt with the purchase or we even ask to see a card of authenticity. If we have any suspicions... We will NOT take it.
2. Be wary of discounts. Top luxury brands rarely offer deep price cuts on their merchandise. Lets all be realistic here, If you see a new Chanel bag 50% off, WALK AWAY! We can only wish there was such a discount. We won't even bring down the price of a quality bag that low. It would be unjust.
3. Scrutinize websites selling the product. Counterfeiters have gotten more sophisticated in selling goods online. Examine the website for its validity, including product images—and price points. Another clue: often times the Frequently Asked Questions area contains grammatical errors. We must be researchers... If there are weird download issues, no contact info, or grammatical errors it isn't really a good site to put your personal information on. BE SMART!
The moral here is to be wary of where to purchase. We certainly are careful, you should too.

Ladies, we all know how difficult it is to look good during sporting events. Here are a few people I found at the El Salvador vs. Panama soccer game on Sunday that show the chic and not so chic way to dress it up.
We all want to try and look hot and sexy while still sporting our team colors. Heels, and wedges may be over doing it. Try for either a smaller wedge or a cute pair of sandals.
This fabulous woman has the perfect idea. Light cotton top with lace details and a pair of jeans with sandals, gives the cuteness appeal women want while still showing her support for her team.. (Panama)
This trendy lady has great style. Lace shorts are very in, tying it together with a simple top and a blazer adds the perfect sporty feel. She sizzles it up with a pair of animal print flats. With this outfit you are sure to stand out from the crowd.
