Some things are not in our control…but many are!

Good Monday morning!

By now I was supposed to have a post up about this amazing new fashion product called Karms…think one part elegant long gloves (without the hands), and one part super chic sleevies. This is truly an innovative product that not only will help you style your more modest wardrobe with panache, but is also a really cool and unique accessory that's a little off the beaten path.

What I loved most about Karms was its variety of styles, colors and designs. These are not your old tube socks with the feet cut off!

Aren't these leopard Karms amazing?

Unfortunately, the memory card with the Karms photos was mistakenly removed from my laptop before they were completely downloaded, and now the photos are nowhere to be found. They were deleted off the memory card but somehow never saved in iPhoto. If anyone knows where on my laptop they could possibly be…please let me know!

Meanwhile, I will be taking some more photos and will have a post up for you shortly, but do check out the Karms website, FB page, Twitter and Instagram. You'll get a kick out of Karms!

What I really want to talk about is how I reacted when I went to find those missing photos. And that my friends, was not a pretty picture. I was really upset to say the least. And I lashed out at the person who pulled out the memory card.

Now that person never intended to do harm to me or my blog. That person probably was trying to preserve…or not mess up what was on that memory card. Actually I don't really know what motivated that person to pull out the memory card at all. But honestly…APPLE people, iPhoto should save those photos once it asks you if you want to delete them off the camera..I mean…come on!

But anyway, the bottom line is my reaction was out of line. There are just some things that are out of our control…and that is life. But what is in our control is our reaction to the those things. And those reactions can have a huge impact on our lives. I would go as far as to say that your reactions to the world around can literally change your life from being miserable to being Utopian.

In the end I apologized to the person for getting angry at them for the mistake they unknowingly made. Obviously I wasn't meant to post the full post today. Because, maybe I was meant to post this message instead: When things don't go you way, take a deep breath and accept that there are some things out of your control…but there are many that are. And your attitude and how you react to them,  is one of them!

Meanwhile, while I work on a full post for Karms…take a look at some amazingly modest PreFall 2014 Looks:

Altuzarra PreFall 2014
SHOP Altuzarra or similar look here, here and here.
 SHOP Michael Kors or similar looks here, here and here
SHOP Fendi or similar looks here, herehere, and here.

AND…I made my first in a series of inspirational videos of some tidbits of wisdom I've gathered from my life experience. Here it definitely needs some tweaking (I know, I'm not looking at the camera!) but I will be working on making them better as time goes on. Subscribe to my YouTube Channel and let me know what you think!

Until next time,

    I also had a melt-down about some technology yesterday. Luckily I was on my own and no-one got it in the neck. But if there was someone in the room with me it could of had a nasty ending ;-)

  3. As a blogger who spends so much time and effort taking all my own photos, I know EXACTLY what it feels like when something goes wrong, I could literally sit down and cry. It is deeply frustrating, and I imagine I would also lash out at whoever was responsible (in my case that would
    You may be able to recover the photos off of your card if you bring it to a digital photo center. Some of them do recovery, and they might be able to help you.
    Good Luck!
