Busy, Busy Bee

Hi gals! Sorry I've been away for the past few days. I have been very busy with work and such, for this was my last week. I've also been out of town this weekend. I've just been a very busy bee.


I have yet to pay my fee for my unlimited Flickr account, so I wasn't able to do a full outfit post tonight. My dearest apologies. I do promise to have some really cool junk for you all this week. I will be on vacation and I am going to have a few guest bloggers. I think you are all going to really love them!
Here is something cute to make you smile:

If you failed to smile at that adorable spray painted baby giraffe, you have problems. Or, maybe you're just not as easily amused as I am.

Good night!

Giveaway Update

Hi lovelies!
I just wanted to let you all know that I will be announcing the giveaway winners Wednesday afternoon. I will be out of town tomorrow and will not have time to blog.

Sorry loves!


It's Empty In The Valley Of Your Heart

Urgh. Damn my flickr account! I only have 3% of space left for this month, which means the next few posts will consist of only one picture. I may find some cool videos or something for you all.


I took these pictures yesterday. It was a pretty quick shoot but I got some really good pictures. Most of which are very twirly, but those weren't very "outfit post worthy". So, I choose this one, in which I was picking something out of my eye. Yay!
This skirt was actually a dress that was far too big in the top area, so I cut it off. I definitely put this skirt to more use that I ever did with the dress. I find it to be much cute as a skirt anyway. The dress was just too much.
So, I downloaded Mumford & Son's album the other night. I'm in love. This is my favorite song off of the album. The video makes me want a Vespa so much more than I already do. It also really makes me want to go to the beach. Which is where I will be in a week and one day. Yay!

Don't forget, today is the last day to enter the giveaway! Enter HERE! go, Go, GO!

Bad Hair Day

Hi gals! Sorry for not having a post in a few days. My Flickr is currently completely filled up. I guess I should fork up the $25 and pay for unlimited space. I guess it's a good idea.
I could have posted yesterday, but I had a TERRIBLE accident. Lemme tell ya about it.
I decided I was going to dye my hair my natural color, which is a light brown/dark blonde. So, I got some bleach. Yeah, mistake number one. I bleached my hair, and it wasn't terrible. So. Then I put the color in. The color didn't take. At all. So I had to make an emergency appointment with my hairdresser (THANK GOD he was available!) and he fixed it. This process started about 1:00 and ended last night at 7:30. I cried a lot. Blogging was the very last thing on my mind.
Anyways, I felt that I should tell you all about my sad story and excuse for not posting yesterday. Also, Do ANY of you know what works best for dry, brittle, severely damaged hair? Pleassssseeee tell me what you use to help your hair stay soft and healthy!

Dear [blank], Please [blank]

I stumbled upon these "letters" just a few minutes ago. I had to share them with you.
I hope you all find them as equally as humorous as I.

Good Night,

You Only Live Once

The same shirt, two posts in a row. I'm a terrible fashion blogger. I'm pretty sure rule number one is to not wear the same article of clothing two times in a row. Oh well. I'm a rule breaker. At least, I like to think I do.


I took these pictures on my lunch break, which explains the lack there of. Sorry ladies. But hey, I do have an outfit post for ya, as I promised I would. I hope it satisfies. If it doesn't, let me know and I'll try harder next time. But. Let me down easy.


I am in such love with floor length skirts. I wish that I could find more like it. I'm sure that I could, I just haven't really been trying. I'm trying to stay away from shopping as much as I can now that I'm working. It sucks to have to save money! Before I forget, the first and last picture above are not the same. I repeat, NOT the same. Just so you know.


I am sorry for the briefness of this post. I have had a really long day at work and I am exhausted. It stinks. I think I'll take a nap now, though. I am certainly in need of one. But before I go, don't forget about the giveaway! It ends Tuesday, so enter while you can!

Viva la vida,

Railroad Station, 1881

I don't have an outfit post for you all today. For that I am sorry. But, I hope that you find the few pictures I snapped of an old railroad station as interesting as I did.
This railroad station was built in 1881. The outside was remodeled in the 1920's, hence the art deco style.

Sadly, this old station is completely abandoned. The city it resides in never kept up with the buildings routine maintenance. Now, the old station is boarded up, except for one doorway, and torn apart on the inside. It's quite sad.

my best friend's a ghost.

Well, that's all for tonight. I'll be back tomorrow with a real post. Don't forget about the giveaway! You've still got *5* days to enter for your chance to win one of three hand-made rings! Go enter HERE! Go! Go! Go! Ya know ya wanna.

My Favorite Shirt

Do you have something that just goes with everything you wear? No matter what it is, it just goes with everything and you love to wear it. Mine is my blue jean shirt given to me by my stepdad. I've put it to more use than he ever did, that's for sure.


I wear this shirt at least once a week. It's definitely a staple in my wardrobe. I can wear it with anything, skirts, dresses, you name it. I can make it dressy or I can make it casual. It's definitely one of my most versatile pieces.


Here, you can see one of the bird nest rings that I'll be giving away next Tuesday. So far, there have only been four or five people who have entered. If you haven't entered, you know you want to! Best of all, it's completely and totally free! I'm hoping eventually to open up a little Etsy shop where I will probably be selling these rings for $12 or $15. I haven't decided yet. But, I'm giving you all the chance to win one before they ever go up for sale! All you have to do is follow this here blog via Google Connect and leave a comment here telling me what your favorite DIY is. It's that simple!
While you're here, it would be so wonderful if you were to hop on over to Chictopia and like today's post!

Can't Fight The Moonlight

Well hi gals! How is your Monday treating you? I hope its going well for you all! Well, as well as a Monday could go. I'm enjoying my day off. Kind of. I'm spending my time sitting in an office. But only until 3:00. As of right now, I'm jamming to the Coyote Ugly soundtrack. Fun times? Fun times!


This outfit was just something that I threw on this morning. Not bad for being half asleep, if I don't say so myself. I assume I attempted to mix patterns again with the polka dots and stripes. I think I'm getting better at it. Or maybe half asleep me is good at it, and wide awake me isn't. Who knows.

This is the Kat Von D lipstick I was telling you about on yesterday's post.

I have no idea why I've been scrunching my lips in all of my pictures lately. It's not something I'm consciously doing. It just happens. And I'm not a fan.I just have a tendency to make really awful faces in pictures. For reasons unknown.

I'm not sure what my obsession is with Coyote Ugly, but I've always loved it. I remember watching it and singing along to all the songs when I was little. I just really like this movie! This video is pretty horrible, and I probably shouldn't share it with you, but I'm going to anyway.So here it is, and enjoy it as much as I do.

I Tamp and I Grind

I'm sure you're all wondering wtf is up with this strange post title. Well I shall explain. While writing this post, I am sitting at my favorite little coffee shop, Tamp & Grind. Hence, I tamp and I grind. Which, I really don't. I hate coffee. I just really like this shop and their Italian cream sodas are just fabulous.


Do you ever put on an outfit, look in the mirror and think "Oh hey, this is cute." Then you take a picture and you think "Oh, this is not what I thought." Yeah, that's exactly how I feel about this outfit. I guess it's not the worst thing ever, but I'm just not feeling it.


Sorry that there are barely any pictures. The weather down here is ridiculous. You'd honestly just have to be from Louisiana to understand it. For those of you who don't know squat about this weather, let me tell you about it. The humidity percentage is so high here than when you walk out the door, you're instantly dripping with moisture. It's disgusting. I know that we're in a drought down here, and that the rain is a wonderful thing, but come the F on! You can forget about doing absolutely anything to your hair. And make-up? Yeah, just a waste of time. I put on lipstick and after 5 minutes it was running off. I'm surprised that it lasted that long. If I were wearing Revlon or some other cheap brand, it would have ran off instantaneously.


I love the combination of the coral on my lips and the teal-y color of my nails. It reminds me of the beach! This lipstick is by Kat Von D. It was a bit pricey, marked at $18.50, but it was so worth it! I have been looking for a coral color like this one for a long time. I know that CoverGirl and Revlon make colors like this, but when I buy their products I just feel like I'm wasting money, especially on lipsticks. The color only lasts for about 20 minutes, and then it's gone. I know that Sephora, Mac, and the like are all pretty expensive. But I swear, you're getting exactly what you expect to get for the price. At Sephora, if you decide you don't like the color, product, or whatever, they'll refund your money or give you store credit towards another product. It doesn't even matter if you've used the product or have had it for months. Just another reason I love this store!
Once again, I am sorry for the lack of pictures, I promise to have something much better tomorrow! Also, I'm still searching for other bloggers to do guest posts with. Are YOU interested?

Go splurge on some really awesome make-up!

New Camera Photos

I took so many pictures with my new camera yesterday, I thought I'd share a few with you.


All in all, I'd have to say that I'm so very happy with my camera. The quality is so much better than that of my last camera. This camera is pure greatness!

Also, a topic I would like to touch on really quickly, trolls. How do you deal with those "anonymous" commenters? They're always the ones who leave...not really mean, but rude comments. Is this necessary? REALLY?! I mean, I know that most of these trolls are just here to annoy the piss out of people. But, it really bothers me. If you're one of those people, please STOP! Thanks:)

Go out and explore an abandoned house!

All The Fishes In The Sea

Today has been such a wonderful day! I FINALLY got my camera after two months without one. I carried it around all day like a child with a new kitten. I couldn't be happier...unless I got a new kitten!


This was my first attempt at pattern mixing. I think I did it right. Maybe, possibly? Pattern mixing is something I've always been somewhat afraid to do. I think I did a good job for my first time. I'm not entirely sure how I feel about it, but I think it works.


I love accessories with animals or bugs even. They add a bit of character. Birds are my favorite to wear, but I love wearing unique animals as well. Not that I would necessarily call fish unique, but when it comes to jewelry you don't see people wearing them every day.

I saw a tutorial on these little bird nest rings a few weeks ago. My mother had some wire and beads shoved away in our office closet so I got to work. I made three in one night! I will put up a tutorial soon on how to make them. It's so easy and they are just so cute!

I hope you all enjoyed finally seeing an outfit post! I'm sorry it's been so long. I won't be taking anymore two month breaks again. Promise.

I'm off to get ice cream with my mother. Have a splendid night!
