My New Winter Boots

new bootsMy last pair of winter boots were demolished last Spring during a hiking excursion… a branch jammed through the bottom of the boots and they were taking on water. That defeats the purpose of winter boots, so I decided it was about time to get another pair of working winter boots. I found these beauties at Shoe Carnival and they are the perfect blend of stylishness and utility… just my style. Are you guys ready for the winter weather?!

Things I’m loving right now

Woohoo! I got my stuff together and I’m going to show you another grouping of some fantastical items I’ve been scoping out on the interwebs lately:




That last shirt has horses on it. I love it! Also, chevron will always be a love of mine. AND THAT PURSE. Such a brilliant color, if only they would mark it down a bajillion dollars. haha.

Outfit Post: Apple Festival

This was my outfit for the Apple Festival last weekend!!!! It was sooo cold out compared to the rest of the week, so I bundled up.
Layers, layers, layers, my friends!

I felt like Amelia Earhart all afternoon! haha

Outfit Post

I mowed my mom’s 3 acre yard yesterday!! And this was the silly outfit I wore. Since I didn’t really dress nicely [or get out of pajamas, really] this past week, this is me keeping it real!!

I am also participating this week in The Nearsighted Owl’s I’m Proud of My Size Linkup! I am not a skinny mini. I have curves and breasts and hips and a badunkadunk. It’s the way God built me and there’s no denying it. I have stretch marks from puberty happening at such a fast pace & I’m okay with that… Not just okay. I’m happy with my curvacious female form!

And that, my friends, is all she wrote!

Initials, Inc.

One of my closest gal pals Ashlee Farris is now a Creative Partner for Initials, Inc! They have ALL SORTS of cutesie bags and accessories… and free personalization if that’s your thang! =)

The tech wallet is one of my fave items… AND it’s in a chevron pattern… be still my heart!!

A giant carry all bag?? It’s officially called the One Trip Wonder, but I think it would be a fantastic travel bag for weekend trips. Easy and fun!! Or even a nice bag for work! =)

I also super dig these Laundry bags. Someday when I get to be fancier, this is the way I’ll be going!

They have all sorts of colors, designs, and font options for you to choose from! =) It’s like Vera Bradley, only more funtional!! Make sure to check out Ashlee’s site! She’s kind of a kick ass lady!!!

DIY: Tie Dye Hair Pt 2

So this time I left the colors in for a bit longer and GLOBBED on the colors. The purple came out more purple and less dark blue and the turquoise is actually turquoise instead of light blue. I’m officially in love [and also a little bit of a my-little-pony] with this hair-do!

Original Colors here! I used the following dyes:
Manic Panic Cotton Candy

30 Before 30: Tie Dye Hair

12. Dye my hair a fun color [even if it's just the tips].

I did it, guys! I tie dyed my hair!!!!! Aren’t you proud of me? I’ve always wanted to do something crazy and fun like this!! I got the okay from my boss and with Pitchfork [concert festival] this weekend, I had to change things up a bit!! =) I’m a wild child and I’m definitely loving this look. It’s laid back and not overly abrasive, LOVE.

Outfit Post

Doesn’t that photo just look MAJESTIC?! haha. Really, though, I was on a hill trying to balance in these wicked heels’o’mine! =) I did pretty well if I do say so myself!

What’s that behind my glorious shoes?

What can I say? Franklin is much better at outfit posts than I am! =P

Did I also mention that I dislike outfit posts in the sun? They make my eyes all squinty and my cheeks all chubster. Alas, alack… REAL LIFE. =) The realer, the better, right? [Did I just say realer?!]
