Look Book: Mint Lace

Sit right back and hear a tale...of this mint lace dress.

Years ago, I was picking through the clearance rack at Kohl's and fell in love with this gorgeous mint lace dress. I loved the color and the little details, but most importantly I loved the $10 price tag. It was a no-brainer and I took it home.

I planned on wearing it to my first visit to the Cherry Blossom festival in DC, but it ended up being a little too big on top (when you are short, clothes tend to be too long and not fit right), and it sat lower on me than I wanted. I tried to wear it a number of times, but I couldn't get over it.

Fast forward to a few months ago, I decided to finally take the plunge, and get it taken in in the shoulders. What happens? Well with the whole dress sitting higher, the tightest part of the dress was now around the biggest part of my stomach, and it became too tight!

Makeup Looks: Black and Gold

Remember how I told you things have been crazy busy for me? Well things got so busy I completely forgot to post on Saturday! I am doing my best to keep up with blogging, but with everything going on right now, it's been tough. Plus, I have been loosing some motivation. I still love creating the looks, but siting down to write the posts has been a struggle.

This look that I loved creating was inspired by this look by Polished Polyglot.

Confetti and Streamers

I feel like I sound like a broken record because all I ever talk about around here is how busy I am. Busy with work, or with family, now add fostering cats to the mix, I never seem to catch a break!

So enough about that, and on to the nails! I saw this look on Pinterest and I wanted to recreate it!

Cat Claws: Jack, My First Foster

I have had cats literally my entire life. I have always been a cat lover, and had a passion for helping them. When I was 9, my very special kitty, Muffin, came into my life. We grew up together and she was my best friend. As she got older, I struggled with the decision on whether or not I'd want another cat after she passed. For a while, I felt that I couldn't ever bring myself to get a cat to "replace" her.

After years of thinking, and talking to Muffin (yes, I am a crazy cat lady and I embrace it), I decided that she would want me to help other cats, and take them in, just as I did for her when she was left on my vet's doorstep.

Geode

I woke up on a Sunday morning, and scrolled through Instagram to find nail art inspiration as I usually do. One look that caught my eye was geode nail art. As I dug deeper, I found so many gorgeous manicures! I knew that I had to create a geode nail art look of my own.

Look Book: Bright, Colorful, and Geometric

Last fall, my friend took me to my first clothing exchange, where a bunch of girls bring clothes they don't want, and then anyone can take the clothes they like from the pile. I have mentioned it on the blog a few times already because I took home so many awesome finds that I love to share! When I saw this fun summer dress, I tried it on right away. It fit like a glove and I knew it had to be mine.

July 2014 Roundup

I has been a hot second since I've done a roundup post and I'm not too sure why. While July has been a busy month, things are finally returning back to normal after the wedding. We started off the month celebrating the 4th of July, and finished with a friend's beautiful wedding, with some excitement in between.
