Ah, here we are!  August … the month the wind blows winter away (we hope), the month of my birth, the month for Leos and Lioness’ … the month of ummmm … considering starting the beach diet, the near end to winter month!  At last.

So here is the first outfit for the month … F.I.E.R.C.E … that’s how I felt, for the first time in forever – I felt fierce today.

Details : Black Shift : Jet | Shoes : Plum | Jacket : Oasis, Foschini | Belt : Edgars | Necklace : Contempo
I finished the Jodi Picoult book I was reading, Perfect Match, and was a wee bit disappointed at the ending.  Not sure exactly why, but I felt it was a little weak.  Maybe I expected more.  Overall, a good story and interesting read.
Next on the list, I think I’ll read One True Thing, which I did start previously, but then the studying was knocking, so I put it aside.  If you have not read any of Anna Quindlen’s work, I strongly suggest it.  Blessings is fantastic and Every last one is thrilling.
Do you use Groupon?  At first I was really hesitant, but have bought three vouchers myself and G-man bought one as well.  I have to behave in fact, because there are so many fantastic offers.  On the 13th, I’m going for a ‘right brain’ therapy – quite intrigued, and tomorrow I need to call and book for a chemical peel.  The discounts are amazing!  I’m looking forward to when they offer shoes at these discounted prices.  G-man was lamenting that there’s not much on offer for ‘boys’.  I have to agree with that.  But then, just shows how much money can be made off of a woman … facial, liposuction, manicure, pedicure, brazilian blow drys, waxes, etc. etc. etc. … quite unbelievable in fact.
Well, I’m tired and need to fish out stockings for Jazz as he needs them for a school project and since he was already in trouble for not having the items at school last week, I don’t want to be the cause of another demit.
‘Til next time … be fabulous, oh heck, just be fierce! (Not mean fierce, sexy, sassy and smart Fierce)
