Our Appetizer.: The Weekender - Face meet ice

The Weekender - Face meet ice

Walking into work this morning was a balancing act. While I was walking, I saw a man slip and fall in the parking lot since more than half of it was covered in ice. And of course like the mentally judgmental person that I am, I laughed a little to myself. And then it happened...I almost slipped. I guess that's what they call karma, right. If only I would not laughed about the guy falling, I probably wouldn't have lost my balance and almost slipped too. Lesson learned Alisia, lesson learned.

Cheers to the weekend!


Friday night was the most relaxing night I've had in a long time. All I did was eat, drink and sleep. Yes I was in bed by 9 PM on a Friday, no do not judge me. 


Saturday I did some shopping and returning while barring the cold and rain. I had a bunch of stuff to return to Victoria Secret, and by a bunch of stuff I mean 5 shirts I had purchased online and I was so disappointed by when I received them. Let me explain, I purchased 6 shirts online and 5 of them were returned. When did Victoria Secret change their manufactures? They made a big mistake, the material was absolutely terrible. 

I found a new store called Mademoiselle in Westlake...what a great find! This little boutique is owned by one very sweet woman and the clothes/dresses/accessories she sells are out of this world! Pictured above is the small ring I purchased from Mademoiselle, talk about ah-mazing! The decor, clothes and atmosphere at this little boutique was so inviting and a place I will definitely return to. 


My makeup for Saturday night was very neutral plus a pop of color from my lipstick. Whenever I wear bold lipsticks, I try to stick to a neutral face and casual hair...no need to walk around looking like a clown. My lipstick was Maybelline Mauve Me. The whole look was complete with a black button down, black skinny pants and nude booties.


As always, my little dancing partner and I spent our Saturday night dancing the night away at Drop Bar. While the DJ was not playing the music we like, actually I'm just trying to be nice....he was terrible, our friend Ana joined us out! I swear there are no nicer & sweeter girls than these two. You know how typically pretty girls are caddy and mean, well these two prove that statement otherwise. 


I am an avid watcher of the Weather Channel, and let me tell you it was not supposed to snow in Cleveland on Saturday night. I know the picture above is amazing, magical actually, but driving home (pictured below) wasn't so amazing or magical or anything positive other than slow and scary. 


I know it looks like I live in the middle of nowhere America, but I swear I live in a "normal" American suburb (depending on what your definition of "normal" is). Let me explain Avon to you very quickly... football players, stay at home moms, luxury cars, hillbilly's, preppy kids, up and coming, big houses, small houses, no sidewalks....you get the point, like any other American suburb. 


Nothing better than waking up to this view in the backyard on a Sunday morning. I love the way the trees look in the back with the snow...this is my definition of winter magic. Don't judge the random Christmas decoration I forgot to take down or the messy morning room table. Just enjoy the beauty that nature has to offer. 

Tell me about your weekend.
Do you still go out when its snowing and cold? 
What is your go to look?
Do you have dancing buddies?
What is your favorite thing to do on the weekend?

  2. I am definitely not judging your early night in- in fact, I am pretty jealous! I like to hibernate when it snows but unfortunately, it isn't always possible!

  3. Your winter looks amazing! It's been my dream to experience one of those snowy winters but I'm in California so that's not happening. LOL We do the same with bold shades of lipsticks, I always go easy on tmy eyeshadow, unless we're in Vegas. :)

  4. It is SO icy everywhere!! And I was shocked when I woke up to like 3 inches of snow on my car on Sunday morning. Silly Cleveland. Maybe it won't snow Wednesday even though they are calling for like 10 inches....if only it worked that way!

    Currently my favorite thing to do on the weekend, if I ever get a weekend off from work, is just relax or hangout with my friends. :)

  7. I almost fell flat on my face in the school parking lot today in front of the kids! Not cool! That ring is SO cute--I love midi rings only have a set from Charming Charlie. I want to invest in a nicer one.

    1. I need to venture to Charming Charlie again, I always get so overwhelmed with all of the selections there. I go in knowing what I want and then I get lost in everything and end up buying something completely different.
