Fashionably Late: August 2016 Events!

Catching Up Any Second Now

I cannot believe yet another month has come and gone!  Dominic is now back in school and we’re settling in for our Fall/Winter schedule.  This year, it means fitting in lots of school events, as well as accommodating my work/blogging/concert-going schedule with my husband’s busy business travel/golf schedule.  Speaking of concerts, I’ll do a recap soon, and will call out special concerts like the Rick Astley concert at the famous Troubador at the beginning of August.  Yes, you read that right:  Rick Astley, famous for the hit “Never Gonna Give You Up”, played only two sold-out shows in the US this year, one in New York and one in LA.  My best friend, Janice and I not only got to witness Rick all live and up close, but we also got to meet him afterwards!

So here is the mini-catch up, followed by separate posts for Elite Netoworking Group’s “A Night of Fashion & Fun” & the ZIUR Designs Fall 2016 Fashion Show.

Cheers and here’s to another great month!

I am very proud to say that my husband closed out the 2016 Golf Channel Amateur Tour by not only promoting from the Hogan flight to the Palmer flight in their “Journey to Better“, but he was also named “Player of the Year” in his previous flight!  Congratulations honey!

At the beginning of August, I took Dominic and Joey for the last sample sale at Love Tatum.  It was my first time visiting Tatum’s studio, and since she has an adorable little French Bulldog, I knew it would be okay to bring Joey along for the outing.  I bought a new little silver ring and Dominic enjoyed the refreshments.

Also, congratulations to Tatum for being selected as a finalist for the “Woman of the Year 2016” through San Diego Magazine!

Lindsay Ryan of Affordably Accessorized is a blogger friend and fellow San Diego Style Blogger.  She announced the debut of August as “National Accessory Month” and asked bloggers and influencers to celebrate accessorizing and accessories all through the month.  I participated in one of her events at Bubbles Boutique mid-month, and not only did I get to spend some time with Lindsay herself, but I got to see Fatsani of TaSanni Designs and chatted with Bubbles Boutique owner Gayleen.  I also participated myself with showcasing some of my favorite accessories on Instagram and here on my blog.  Looking forward to what next year has in store!

Right after I left Bubbles Boutique, I headed over to Mercedes-Benz of El Cajon to check out the festivities as fellow blogger Vanessa Balli hosted the Pre-KAABOO Party!  Food was provided by Sausage & Meat, raffle prizes were given away every hour, pampering was done inside the showroom, and live music was provided by King Taylor Project and their friend davyrockett.

It definitely was a nice day to get out and enjoy a taste of what it will be like at KAABOO.  Are you going?  I’m going on Saturday September 17, courtesy of the tickets my friend Angi won at the Foodie Fest Encinitas Media Party back in May (post here)!

Full Time Fabulous Beach Themed Blog Event  – I started to work on the event for Sunglass Hut’s Full Time Fabulous blog, which would have featured my lovely little boy in all his sun-sea-and-sand glory for a beach theme.  But alas, I just didn’t have the time to devote to the post the way I would have liked to.  However, you don’t need to miss out on all the beach fun!  The bloggers who participate on a regular basis are always incredibly creative, so I’m including the links to this latest event.  Click on them below to check out Kristy’s post and all of the fantastic reads on the FTF blog.  Surfs up!

(PS:  Happy belated birthday Kristy!)

My First Guest Post –  I’m excited to present my first guest post!  Joanna of “Mrs. Bossa Does the Do” is a lovely UK fashion blogger, who has a knack for vintage dressing.  I had not done a guest post before, so when she Tweeted requests for guest posts while she settled into her new digs, I jumped at the chance!  Click on the picture above to check out my post called “How I Rock Vintage”, which is all about my love for the rock t-shirt.

My Husband Places 2nd in his Promoted Flight!  Check out this write-up from The Golf Channel AM Tour website.  Because of his improved golf handicap, my husband was recently promoted to the next flight up and placed 2nd in an amateur tournament played at The Golf Club at Fallbrook this past Sunday.  Another proud moment in the Chen household!

Chris Nayve blew away the competition in the Sarazen Flight, posting his best and only round under 80 in three years on Tour.  Nayve fired a 78 on Sunday good for a six stroke victory and his first on Tour since the 2009 season.   Deon Chen, recently promoted from the Jones Flight, proved his improvement was no fluke.  Chen fired a score that typically is in the winning range for the flight, but his 84 had him settle for a very good 2nd place finish in the first start in the flight.  Andrew Bloom and Kenneth Shelton Jr tied for 3rd place at 85.

Lastly, I would like to take time to commemorate my father’s birthday.  He would have been 71 today.  I love and miss you daddy!
