Yoins Clothing

So, I found this new company, Yoins clothing, and I've been browsing their store.  I'm always game for a little bargain hunting in a fresh new place and I have to say, if you love bargains, floral prints, flowy fabrics, or better yet, all of the above then this is the place for you.  I noticed a lot of cold shoulder pieces, which has been  all the rage for more than a season, not to mention oodles of ruffles and bows on their flowy pieces.  They also have quiet a few cute tees and tunics if you're a casual girl and a number of body-con dresses if casual just ain't yo thang.  After browsing through Yoins' fashion dresses for women, I may have to add a few more lovely pieces to my wardrobe.   I also looked through their swimwear.  I know it's only March, but let's face it, winter is over and it's just going to keep getting hot out there.  I like the unique prints on the swimsuits and Yoins has some a nice variety of swim styles, from sexy bikini swimwear to more modest one piece swimsuits.  In the upcoming weeks, I'll be featuring some of these dresses and swimsuits, so stay tuned.  For now, I'll just post a few of my favorites and I should mention that all of these items I'm posting pics for were below $22 and right now Yoins is running a discount of 20% off with no minimum when you use the code EASTER at checkout.  Happy Hunting!

Blossom Toss Up Dress Review

    I'm a fan of Hell Bunny dresses.  Their unusual prints mixed with their classic cuts are so original and eye catching.  This Blossom Toss Up Dress is available at ModCloth, Unique-Vintage, or directly from  I always go with ModCloth because I love their customer service should anything go awry with my order.  
    Anyhoo, it's time for me to gush about this dress!  So, the colors are bold and vivid (yay!)  and the cut is that classic figure flattering style that Hell Bunny always delivers (double yay!).  I'd say that the sizing is accurate.  I bought mine in XS and I could probably have gone down to XXS because the bodice was a bit roomy, but since they don't make this dress in XXS, I opted for a nice bra to help fill things out.  This dress is unlined, but the fabric is thick and 100% cotton, so perfect for summer wear.  And that tea dress length is  particularly great if the weather gets a little breezy.

For St. Paddy

Lucky Print, Clover Print, and Clover Necklace from
This year, I'm doing St. Paddy's day a little differently.  My girls have really gotten into clelbrating every color based holiday since we've been back in the States, and I'm happy to do things that make them happy.  So, I'm lifting my March long ban on wearing green, but no Clovers here, this St. Patrick's day I'm wearing a leaf and acorn print dress of my own creation.  This little emerald gem represents the very last of all my sewing projects.  Since winter began I've completed a dozen skirts and dresses!  Sewing has become my go-to hobby for beating the winter blues, and it's been something to do so I don't fall asleep during two hours of American Ninja Warrior on Friday nights.  Don't get me wrong, I love ANW, I just can't sit through anything on TV for two hours at night without falling asleep.  I need to be busy and sewing clothes has definitely kept me busy.  It's also had the unexpected side benefit of making me very picky about what I buy now.  I want something incredible and I'm not prepared to settle because I know if it comes right down to it, I'll just make what I'm looking for myself.  That's something better than luck, that's empowerment, baby.

A Bicycle Built for Bleu

Here she is, my new baby.  This is my dream bicycle and after years of wishing and waiting it's finally mine.  I bought the bike because with the new house and the new schedule finding time to exercise regularly has been a real challenge.  I also love and dearly miss my daily walk to get the mail.  I don't make that walk here because it's about 3 miles long with some very steep hills.  I was hoping that with a bike I'd get my time of quiet reflection, plus a good workout and get my mail all in one.  I have to start slow because my quads are no where near ready to handle a three mile ride with hills, but I'm determined to ride a little each day until I can do the whole loop.
