OOTD: Another Steal

Another buy of the week! I know the week isn't over yet but I loved this skirt soo much I had to wear it. I found the skirt at T.J for $7.00, yes S-E-V-E-N buckaroos! I also bought the belt at T.J for $3.99. It was a pretty drab day, cloudy low 60's and a looming chance of rain so I wore some leggings underneath with some boots. So I was warm and I'd say fairly cute. 

The hair was towards the end of a braid out and I just didn't feel like being bothered with it so I threw it up in a bun, paired it with a headband and VOILA!

Small World Project: Katie!

I got my letter from Katie, she was very creative. The envelope was made with a map, I think. Either way it was really really cute. She also sent me some photographs of her room that she took with a new "instagram" camera. It kind of reminded me of my polaroid from back in the day, lol. 

Thank you Katie!

Small World Project: Melissa!

Melissa sent me the cutest little letter. It was adorable. There was this little pocket thing that she put the little papers in, and a dried and pressed flower on the front. It really was the cutest thing ever. It was simple, cute and OMG!. I'm sorry i'm one of those people that oober excited over the smallest things, lol. Ok, so moving on she sent me the headband pictures above. I LOVE IT! She said she guessed my style and she got it exactly right, I love earth tones and subtle colors. 

Thank you sooooo much Melissa!

Nail Time!


Simple and somewhat cute. I guess kind of like a ying yang without the dots. Oooh, or like a black and white cookie without the black. This is this weeks design and that black mark is another battle scar from work, expect to see a lot of those, lol. 

Be well ladies, till next time :)

Thursday, October 13, 2011


Sometimes you wake up and you don't feel pretty, your not happy with your life and you don't know where to begin to make yourself feel better. That was me a few days ago and the first step is to wake up and firmly decide you hate feeling like crap. To that I say pour a glass of wine, pick up a good book and be grateful because things could always be a lot worse. 

Have a superb day ladies :)

Small World Project: From BREE :)

I got my letter yesterday, and it couldn't have been a more perfect time. Let's just say I came to the realization that I had to re-dream my life dream, lets save that for another post. Anywhooooo, . . . drumroll please I present to you, the one & only Bree! (insert applause here).
The Art of Being Cool
So here's a few snapshots of what I received.

How awesome is this stuff? You know there is something satisfying about this pen-palling (I know, not a word). The necklace is soooo cute. I'm not a necklace person because I think they're clunky but this is so cute, simple and dainty, it's perfect. Also, there were coupons (who doesn't love coupons!), Redkin moisturizer sample (awesome!), a picture that oozed hotness and a flyer for (<-check it out).

The best part was the feeling that there's someone out there who took the time to send me something that wasn't a bill and that my friends is an amazing feeling.

Randoms: camera= DARK ABYSS!

Just wanted it to be known that my camera charger has fallen prey to some dark abyss and thus, I cannot take any pictures :( [boohoo]. I've ordered a new one and it's on its way. Hopefully I get it in time to post pictures of the packages I receive from participating in the small world project. The package i've sent out went to Katie, I hope she enjoys it. As soon as this battery charger gets here I will work harder at making this blog 'prettiful'.

Also, I just bought a jewelry making kit, wish me luck!

Quote of the Week!

Here's a quote that a stumbled upon and I felt it could be our inspirational quote of the week:

You're NEVER too tall or short, too big or small, too old or young to INSPIRE.
