Fall Palette





Tunic - Loft, Jeans - Old Navy,  Bag - Mark & Graham, Heels - Sam Edelman, Watch - Michael Kors (old), Earrings - (old) these are also cute, lips - Becca Beach Tint Raspberry  

I decided to try and dress much nicer at work than I currently do.  It's gone so casual (we can wear jeans everyday), it's just so easy to be super comfy and not so stylish.  So the outfit above is my attempt to try harder.  I think a lot of my fall clothing this year will be in this same palette of navy, grey and burgundy.  

Speaking of grey - did you see the bag?  Everything!  So glad I finally found an everyday grey bag.  It's the Elisabetta Handbag from Mark & Graham and I love it.

Cabo Tease

I promise I have 3 or 4 posts planned regarding my trip to Cabo last week.  So worth the wait if only to drool at the photos of the resort we stayed at, Capella Pedregal.  

Fedora, Sunnies - old (similar to Fendi), Hoops - old (similar to TopShop), Linen shirt,  Nails: Essie Sand Tropez
 So hold tight.  Eye candy 'a comin'!
**So, I decided to post my pics on facebook.  It's just easier and I am lazy.  It is what it is. Feel free to friend me at facebook.com/frenchrum**

Rompin' Around

I am headed on a vacay to Cabo soon and I am looking for a white romper to literally romp around in on the beach and at my resort.  You know I love to compare so here are three versions at three different price points.  I like the Helmut Lang one best for style.  It's so relaxed and casual.  But obviously, I like the Bloomie's price.  The styles are so similar that it really makes it easy to be a bargain hunter.  

Which one do you like?

All Waffle Erthang

I have been itching to make these Cinnamon Roll Waffles for a while.  So in honor of my 10 pound weight loss (since April 7th), I thought I would take time out this Memorial Day Holiday to have a cheat meal.  And it was a good one - so worth it!


The Pillsbury dough w/ Cream Cheese Icing


Add to well sprayed Belgian Waffle maker.  Note my 21 Day Fix containers in the background.  I said this was a Cheat Meal!!!


Mine browned for 4 minutes


Make your drizzle according the recipe in the link above (you know, in the first paragraph)


Pour Drizzle over your Cinny Waffles and be amazed.  So good.  The hubs was highly impressed.  Of course, the little dude was all about them (only gave him half of one - he was sad)!

Grey Matters

I need a new Handbag.  It's been almost two years since I purchased a nice, lofty everyday bag.  I'm thinking grey.  The forerunners from below are the Tory Burch Amanda and the Liebeskind Satchel Vintage Helene.

21 Day Fix: Challenge Time

Last year, I started to finally focus on getting my weight in order.  It's been out of control especially after having a baby.  After about a sixth-month hiatus (in know, tsk, tsk) I'm back at it and starting up with Beachbody's 21day Fix.  I had great results with Slim in 6 so I'm pumped.  In 3 weeks you'll find some before and after photos on the blog showing my results.  Yesterday, I did the Total Body Cardio Fix workout. It was almost 30 minutes long and it was great.  I feel a tad sore today but not so much that I'm miserable or need Advil.  But that's also probably b/c I had to do the modifier on some of the moves, ha!  I'm also learning about eating clean and portion control.


I like that you get a (quick) break between the exercises so you can mentally prepare yourself to push through.  I burned over 300 calories!  Keep in mind, that out of shape people like me tend to burn more calories at first.  Which is good for me as I know I'll see some quick results.



I'm also starting a Facebook Challenge group on April 21st for anyone who wants to get it in gear for the #SummerSlimdown!  Follow me at CoachCamilleC for info.  

So again, stay tuned b/c in three short weeks I will share my results from drinking Shakeology (which I love, btw) once a day and using the 21day Fix program.  Am I going to be in a bikini, no, but I will be holding my head higher and wearing some of my pre-baby clothes (finally...after almost two years...)!

Another Weekend

I attended a super fun wedding this past Saturday with my husband.  My dear friend was married to her long time-friend and now love (they have known each other since Kindergarten)!  After some torrential rain and lots of prayers for our lives while driving to the venue, we were able to relax and enjoy Michelle & Justin's wedding.  I was even able to capture a double rainbow outside right after the ceremony.  Talk about special!  It was such a fun, joyous and loved-filled evening that I had to share pics. 

Rainbows in McKinney, TX
Loved their photo booth (winksmilepics.com).

So I thought everyone was going to make a funny face... brats!
The besties with the bride.  Lovely!
My man was a party pooper - he didn't want to use any of the props.  Dress: J.Crew bought last year - been waiting for the occasion to wear it (and fit it!) (similar here and here)
