How to learn from experience II: “You look like my next mistake.”

laylahleckerEvents, Fashion

Keep moving. Or do what I do and stick to the same pattern! Actually, it’s what I used to do. I wrote about Taylor Swift (TS) songs and one of my first heartbreaks in my last post, so I figured why stop now? Before I married the real love of my life, I dated. Some dates were casual and some turned into relationships like my two CKs. The two CKs in my life were very different, but they also had something in common. I went shopping all the time. Okay, that’s not the commonality, but I did shop a lot … Read more →

How to learn from experience:”All [he] had to do was stay…”

This is a continuation of an earlier post.  My boss walked into my office in the middle of a Taylor Swift binge, so I shared why I appreciate her lyrics. I’m not sure he bought it, but I let him know that some of my favorite Swift songs have described some of my deepest and painful heartbreaks. Suddenly, I remembered heartbreak may be a natural occurrence.

In an earlier blog, I wanted to save my younger co-workers from heartbreak, but that’s not possible. They need it. I had it, and my breakups were tragic at the time.  Fast forward … Read more →

And this is what happens when my husband does not allow our pups in his gaming room.

#PokémonGoals

laylahleckerEvents, Fashion

I wonder if my hubby would go for a Pokémon Halloween theme this year. I’ll be Pikachu, of course, and he can be the Pokéball. Or, he can be my trainer and just toss balls at me. That sounds slightly dirty, but, hey, I am married y’all.😉

You see, I got sucked into Pokémon Go, and I really don’t know why.  I never played Pokémon. I knew of certain characters but that is only because Pikachu is so cute!

The show must go on…

While many hard-working peeps are celebrating Labor Day, I am mourning the unofficial end of summer.

How to wear a skort

Before too long, the sun will set much earlier and I’ll have to pull my sun lamp out of storage. Las Vegas does not get terribly cold, but the sun sets around 4:30 PM and that is just too early for my taste and for my moods.

I think Blac Label Boutique feels my pain and can’t embrace the Fall season just yet. Blac Quartz has an exclusive piece for Designer Showcase’s September round. It’s called Savage and is business up front and party … Read more →

“Who knows why it’s gotta be this way”

laylahleckerEvents, Fashion

Trying to understand the bigger picture is harder than it seems. In the past, I got so focused, I could only see what was in front of me, so I missed what I needed to see.

Revolution

Okay, I also ignored what I needed to see too lol. The mind can be so convenient at times.

This is what you came for

Right now, my mind is on top of it because I am getting better at seeing the whole picture.

Music is what feelings sound like

And right now, I understand that I was pretty much an idiot when I was younger, so I can’t blame my young employees for making the … Read more →

One (1) More Day to go Around the World

laylahleckerEvents, Fashion

Sascha’s Designs has an exclusive piece at Swank’s “Around the World” August round, and it is a symphony of brilliant colors and patterns.

Around the World

It actually has a shoulder decoration as well, but I opted to go strapless because I love the dainty ruffles around the bust.

One More Day

Now, since you only have one more day to go around the world, you better get hopping. Click here for your private jet.

“Remember that there’s someone there whose heart is always true…”

laylahleckerEvents, Fashion

So hubby, “I’ll always be the man in love with you.” Um..woman. You know what I mean. Readers, you probably do not, so let me take you back to Christmas 2015.

Remember that there's someone there whose heart is always true

In 2015, my husband and I celebrated our first Christmas as a married couple so I was on the lookout for cutesy commemoration gifts to throw under the tree. Hobby Lobby had the cutest mugs in the checkout aisle that read “I heart my husband” and “I heart my wife.” Initially, I grabbed the heart wife mug for a gift, but I rethought that decision while standing in line. … Read more →

Oops, I did it again: A Prozac Stipulation

laylahleckerEvents, Fashion

Have you ever felt like you won the battle? I have. Have you ever realized that the battle only exists in your head? The odds must be in my favor because, again, I have.

Oops

Though, I should warn you. Winning a battle that was basically created in your head is satisfying, but a lonely experience if you need attention. Prozac does not solve everything.

I did it again

You see my problem is this
I’m dreaming away
Wishing that heroes, they truly exist
I cry, watching the days
Can’t you see I’m a fool in so many ways[?]

Yep, I’m a fool in that … Read more →

The danger of drifting: “Go away from me [and] leave me alone.”

laylahleckerEvents, Fashion

This is what happens when I listen to 90’s music all night long. Total angst. Surely, I’m not the only one this happens to…right? I’ll have to test my hubby tomorrow. Stay tuned for results!

Drifting

Actually, he’ll never go for that. When he drifts, he listens to old country, and I can’t go for that lol.

Taking my time

At least we have nothing but time, and when you think about it, time is everything.😉
