at last some warm weather… but I have to do my pedicure…. home renovation and remodeling with Feng Shui…

Yesterday was the first day this year that I felt some warmness… Yeah, maybe we can start wearing our lighter clothes and new kind of shoes and sandals. That’s why I’ve to do my pedicure as I think that uncover your toes without a pedicure is a big no no.

You probably have already notice that I’ not much of a denim wear person. Well, there’s a reason for that, because I don’t invest much on denim clothes due to some kind of office dress code that doesn’t enable me to wear them when working at the office.
So I tend to use denim clothes just on casual looks on weekends or holidays unless it’s something dark denim, like this “jeggings” I bought when I travelled to Toronto early this year.
But as I’ve told you already I have a trendy fashion persona, so I’m excited to give it a try – my way - enjoyed the challenge of making it work for me.
However I must confess you that I’m having some inner problems, because I’m still wearing my mourning attire, about dressing other colours than black or grey.

I guess I’ve never talked here that I’m doing some home renovation and remodeling. I know, one more thing to still make me very busy. But I guess that in the end we will finish with that sensation of well being.
Balanced space for each family member, location of the kitchen, figure out the lighting, among other things, are very important if you wish to follow Feng Shui guide lines.
I do believe that Feng Shui guide lines are important to change the flow of energy which is always a good thing, but there can be some limitations because of the environment that is already created.
Nowadays you can find some home remodeling contractors who are believers of this practice and they can help you arrange your rooms and furniture the right way, thus you will be attaining good energies in your home.

These pictures were taken in our city garden. It used to be such a beautiful garden… but now is very poor with just a few flowers and not so well presented. I felt sad about it, I had the feeling that one more thing from my childhood has disappeared…

beige summer boots – Bata
dark denim jeggings – H&M (Toronto)
light gray top with big flower – Mango (on-line)
navy blue blazer (from a suit) – mainland store
necklace – Mango (on-line)
bracelet - gift from Hubby (Tie Rack)
turquoise ring and bracelet set – mainland store
sunglasses -Pull and Bear
blue handbag - Westrags

WOW, this was a long post… I’m not very much used to it :-)


  1. It's hard to believe it's cool enough ANYWHERE to wear jackets! SO very hot here.

    I'm trying to enlarge the picture enough to see the image on your shirt...You look great in your denim "jeggings".

    Again, thank you for your kind and gentle words to me. (To see myself as others might see me is not just a "side benefit" but the MAIN reason I continue my thrifty style blog! I'm definitely not the fashionista that you are.)

  2. You look like you are ready for that warmer weather. Loving the complete look! In the toronto area it is raining (most of this week)- and small earthquake went through yesterday - can you believe it?

    There really is something toFeng Shui - my sister and her husband had someone do their office - the patients - cold not tell what was different - but said "it feels so peaceful and clam- what is different?" Sometimes it s what you can't see that makes a difference.

    Happy Renos - we are going through it as well - kitchen and family room - can't wait for completion.

    Cheers, HHL

  3. Great denim leggings, they are very in style right now. I love the look of them with boots, it's a nice way to change up a look from the bell bottoms. I clicked over from Rebecca's blog, enjoyed browsing!

  4. Ooh I actually really like those jeggings on you! And the flower top is awesome. Yay for redecorating, sounds rather fun :)

  5. Finally we do not need to wear jackets anymore. The jeggings look great on you! (I'm still contemplating to buy some) xoxo
