What's in My Closet (Revamping my old capris)

I have a few pairs of capris and I need shorts. I decided to see how many of them can be transformed into some cool shorts. Attempt one was very easy. These capris have wide legs and a semi stiff material so I rolled them up and walla I have some cute Bermuda shorts. What do you think?

Deedee's Beauty Corner (Feria hair color by Loreal)

I have been guilty the past two years of buying the cheapest hair dye to touch up my roots. I decided to stop that and get the Feria hair color in Very Light Beige Blonde. I forgot how much I liked it. It lightened my hair up a bit and added the shimmer effect I really like. I love the conditioner that comes in the kit, it also has a shimmer effect.

The kit comes with color, developer, shimmer serum which you add to color, gloves and the conditioner. I usually leave in my hair for 25 minutes and then pull through the ends for the last 10.

I ended up with platinum blonde hair with some golden highlights. My natural hair color is blonde level 6.

What's in My Closet (Gingham)

Gingham is back and as luck would have it, I still have this gingham skirt.  This is one of my favorite skirts that got lost in the back of my closet. I think I will wear it a lot this spring and summer. It looks pretty cute with this ruffled top and my ankle strap shoes.

What's in my Closet (Floral Shoes)

I got these shoes because they were so cute. I was sure they would match something I have but I'm having a hard time. The shoes are tan, beige, olive green with mauve tones. Easy right? They are still like brand new I have only worn them a few times. I tried a casual look with this black sheath dress and olive green military style vest. What do you think? If you have any suggestions on what would look good with these shoes let me know. They are so comfortable and cute I want to wear them.

Scenery to Photograph (San Diego Zoo Safari Park)

 This Safari Park gives me a chance to see amazing animals up close without going to Africa. Africa is on my list of places to go but in the meantime this place is really amazing.

First I want to show you Izu the Lion. I don't know how something can look so powerful and cute at the same time. He was so close I wanted to pet him. Isn't he gorgeous?




 I actually got to feed one of these giraffes about 17 years ago. At the time, I bought a biscuit and stood on a platform. The giraffe walked up to me, looked me over, then leaned in and took the biscuit. He or she was so gentle, I didn't feel the biscuit leave my fingers.  Feeding a giraffe is very cool. That has changed, I imagine it could create problems. Now you can go on a paid tour that takes you into the heart of Africa and you can see them up close that way.




He's so cute!! Look at that face!




It was getting a bit warm and we found a shady bench with a view of the Elephants. I was able to make a video of two of the elephants so cute.  I had to take out the sound some couple behind me were going on and on about nachos.

 Lorikeets are one of my favorites. You  go in with a cup of nectar which you buy for a few dollars. They will land on you, many may land on you. I ended up with four. One of which was so friendly as soon as I started talking to him he ran up my arm and was doing the head turns at me. Then he started doing a little dance. He was quite the performer. They are so beautiful, the pictures don't show you how detailed the feathers are.




This is a picture of part of the African Plains which I took from the tram.  This place is huge so bring some good walking shoes. There is so much to see, this is just a little bit. Go check out their website to see all the animals and all the special work they do to help endangered species too.

Deedee's Beauty Corner (mark. Naked Love collection)

I believe this was for Valentines Day but I just got my Naked Love hand cream the other day. It was a nice surprise since I had forgotten about it due to being on back order. I always need hand cream so I thought I would give it a try. The scent is strong but I like that. It is very moisturizing. The scent is Apricot Nectar, Velvet Freesia and Musk. I think I smell the Freesia more than anything. This line also has Body Butter, Body wash and Body Mist. I like the hand cream and I would like get the body wash.












I wanted to include a few special offers from Avon/mark.

What's in My Closet (Custo Barcelona)

As you my know I really love Custo Barcelona but the prices are out of my comfort zone or reality. I am lucky that someone who sells at my favorite consignment shop also shares my love and then passes it on to the next girl Me! I got this fabulous top for around $13 I can't quite remember. So I tried a few bottoms with this top and for what I have the red jeans work best. I was afraid I might look like Howard from the Big Bang Theory but I think it is cute and probably not too loud. I am most comfortable wearing all black but when I started my blog I broke out of my comfort zone to have some fun.

I had to add an old mark. tank under this top because it is so low cut, it would leave nothing to the imagination. I have had this tank top a few years but it was a perfect match!
