Sleeping Beauty

Sleeping Beauty is not only the princess, not only sleeping for beautiful skin, but for growing and better learning! How many hours do you sleep?

These necklaces are sweet, but I don't remember where I bought them

News for Fairfax County School Board, but would be good for everybody! They approved later school start times – around one hour later, at 8:10 AM. Not for all levels, but teenagers – there were studies showing the need for sleep for them. It took a decade to change the rule! Doctors from Children’s National Medical Center studied whether students needed more sleep, saying that, on average, children sleep 6 hours a night or even less, when right is to sleep for 9 hours.

Sleeping is important… other things too. Sight. I need to ask for understanding – I’m facing some sight issues and I’m not able to read long posts, but can see pictures. I’m sorry for that, but I’m on treatment and now I’m not able to read well. I love reading and this is bad news :(

Look of the day :)

  1. Awh, I’m sorry to hear your eyesight hasn’t been too good! I hope you feel better soon!

    I definitely don’t get enough quality sleep, with school I have to be up at 6, and can’t go to bed until 11. It’s been a resolution for ages to get more sleep!

  2. Ciao cara Denise, come stai? Spero che i tuoi problemi di vista non siano gravi e soprattutto si risolvano prestissimo (i miei post puoi tranquillamente non leggerli, anzi riposati gli occhi e guarisci presto)! :(
    Ma a che ora iniziano le scuale da voi??? Qui in Italia iniziano da sempre alle 8.15/30 am!
    Dormire è molto importante per tutto il corpo! io dormo 8/9 ore, anche se durante la settimana mi alzo prestissimo per andare a correre, vado sempre a letto presto, mentre nel week end faccio tardi la sera ma la mattina dormo quanto voglio! ^^
    Sei sempre bellissima dentro e fuori, con quegli occhioni e quel sorriso dolce, ed i tuoi look sono sempre super originali, hai una collezione di accessori davvero invidiabile! 😀

  3. Sometimes I feel bad for myself because I’m too addicted with my pc and it results me to sleep less. Geez, its making me look bad hihi..
    But anyway, you look so beautiful and blooming in the pictures, hun.. maybe because it was paired with a sweet smile.

  4. Hola Denise! Que informativo y refrescante tu post. Es verdad que se necesita dormir la cantidad suficiente de tiempo. Yo ya quisiera dormir mas, aunque te soy sincera que muchas veces puedo ir a dormir mas temprano pero siempre hay algo que pasa y voy a domir tarde. Debo de hacer cambios en la vida y en esta area en particular. Esperemos que los estudiantes tengan buenos resultados y el colegio tambien.
    En cuanto a tu look, te ves bella! Siempre me encanta el estilo bohemio ❤. Te deseo una hermosa semana, bien bendecida!

  5. Sleep is one of our body’s most fundmental needs, aside from consuming food and drink. I only get about 6 hours of sleep a night. It’s not enough I know. But life is just so busy that I can’t see a way forward right now to getting to bed earlier. I will keep trying though. Oh Denise, so sorry to hear that you are having problems with your vision. I do hope this is a temporary thing? Keep strong and seek out whatever help you can. We’re in this life only once :). Kisses Tracey xxx

  6. I.need.more.sleep!!!!
    I’m so sorry your eyes are bad- I hope it gets better soon- worrying! You need to get it sorted! Take care of yourself lovely.xx
    On the outfit front, this is such a pretty ensemble- I love the rusty shades- the skirt is beautiful and the bag was made to go withit-beautiful!x

  7. I wish I could get 8 hr sleep lucky if I get 5 hrs. You look stunning doll hope everything works well with your eye sight it must be a little nerve racking for you but keep the faith that you will see better.

  8. I’m so sorry to hear you can’t read at the moment. I hope your eyes get better soon. I’m such a visual person, when I have problems with my eyesight (not very often fortunately),I get really nervious.

    On a brighter note, you look stunning in this outfit. That maxi skirt is gorgeous and I like the shoes with heels. I think I have a similar pair and I love them…The necklaces you are wearing are lovely…you accessorized so well.

    I just want to take a moment to thank you for your amazing comments, they really mean a lot to me.

  9. You are looking so lovely!
    Sleep is very important. I think I’ve been getting enough sleep lately, It used to take me hours to fall asleep. Sometimes I didn’t even fall asleep. But, lately i’ve been doing pretty well. :)
    I’m sorry you’re having trouble with reading. That must be difficult. Hope all is well with your eyesight.

  10. So sorry to hear about your health issue. I hope your eyes get better.

    I am loving your embroidered bag from Indonesia. I should have my husband pick me up something similar next time he is over there :-)


  11. Marvelous boho style Denise! I love your cute skirt and bag. I don’t get enough sleep sadly 😀 I always said that school starts way too early 😉 but it’s too late for me now 😀 It took them too long. I hope you get well soon and that your sight will improve 😀 I won’t write too much cos I don’t want to mess with you treatment. Wish you a happy Tuesday sweetheart!


  12. I hope you eyesight problems get sorted soon, not reading is a nightmare!
    Regarding sleep I feel like I need around eight hours to feel good, but I get around six throughout the week and maybe seven at the weekends, and I can feel it draining me.

  13. Hi, dear Denise, you look beautiful in this OOTD, the bag is amazing, wow. I am so sorry to hear your eyesight hasn’t been good lately, here’s hope it will get better soon. It must be very hard not to be able to read ((())) Regarding the sleep question, well I know I don’t get enough sleep. It’s been a crazy year so far and it doesn’t look it will get less crazy soon, lol. Anyhow, I hope your rug has been delivered by now? What color is it? Pattern, no pattern? Right now I am totally crazy about all that interior decorating stuff. It’s kinda refreshing, although I am still lost. But I am enjoying it tremendously, Denise. So tell me all about it as soon as you feel better. Get well soon my dear blogger friend.

  14. Liebe Denise, hoffentlich ist das mit Deinen Augen nicht zu arg. Ich bin direkt besorgt und wünsche Dir von Herzen, dass das wieder in Ordnung kommt. Dazu schicke ich Dir alle guten Gedanken. Ja, Schlaf ist sehr wichtig und ich habe mir deswegen vor einiger Zeit auch vorgenommen, wieder mehr zu schlafen, was ich auch mache und ich merke, es tut mir gut. Dein Look ist wieder wunderbar, so ein toller Boho-Look und Du hast alles wieder einzigartig schön und geschmackvoll kombiniert.
    Alles Liebe für Dich, ich denke an Dich, liebe Denise <3

  15. Hope that everything will go fine with your treatment, dear! What about sleeping, I love sleeping well, but not so long, for example, I usually sleep about 7-8 hours, everyday I wake up early (near 6 a.m.) and I feel vivid and not sleepy for all day. Moreover, even on the weekend I don’t use to sleep more than 8 hours, because I feel a little bit tired if I sleep too long.So, to sum this up, I think that I have nice sleeping habits 😉 Btw, I love your shoes, Denise, as I said here many times before, you have great collection of your footwear, dear friend :)

  16. Hi Denise. First, I would like to let you know that I like reading your post because it’s very informative and your outfits are always on point. You look lovely as always. :)

    I’m sorry about your eye-sight. I was born with a bad eyesight — myopia. Hope yours will be back to a perfect 20-20 vision soon.

    and yes, 8-10 hours of sleep is very important. I am unable to sleep at night because I work graveyard shift as a web developer. I love my work but there are times that I badly want to sleep for 5 years hahaha just kidding. I miss sleeping at night.

  17. interesting post because I know I dont sleep enough, even though i know its good for you!!! I get home late from work and I only have an hour or two to just relax before having to go to bed to get a full 8 hours, and sometimes I end up staying later and end up getting only 6 hours, which I can totally feel the drag the next day! Sorry to hear about your sight, hopefully your eyes can rest enough and you can start to read again! I love reading as well! My eyes have started hurting when I read too much on my computer or phone or ipad, maybe your eyes need some rest or use glasses to let them not have to do all the work in focusing? hope you are better soon dear denise! have a great weekend!

  18. Oh, I know that sleeping well is important but lately I was sleeping a few hours. Not because I have difficult to sleep but, because I have many things to do and the time in a day isn’t enough to do everything. So, I sleep only 3 or 4 hours a day. I think that is a waste of time when we are sleeping.
    But I know that isn’t a good thing to do.
