Spring time is here!

Hello friends!

Here’s what I wore today. I’m just glad its warming up a bit here and I get to wear fun shoes. I kept it kind of simple today and jazzed up my makeup a bit

Hope you all are having a lovely day!

Tut Tut, it looks like rain!

Hello!

I hope your weather is as nice as mine is today! Its all sunshiney, although we are to expect rain later this afternoon.
I’m wearing the rain boots again, just to keep my feet dry, and they are kinda cute!
I’m also wearing my new DIY graphic sweater and new DIY skirt(this is the reversible one.)
The graphic turned out decent, definitely learned some do’s and don’t’s while attempting this, but I like it. Didn’t cost me much at all, and I for sure will be giving it a second try.

Happy Hump Day: Restless Dream

Hey lovelies!

Quick post today! It’s super busy at work, but I did want to share my outfit today!

For those of you who will ask how I did my hair. I curled the ends, pulled it back into a ponytail. Took one strand and wrapped it around my hair tie, and bobby pinned in place. Then I took a small clear elastic hair tie and put it in about 2-3 inches down and then loosened up the top part between the hair ties. It’s a fun take on a classic pony tail!

Spring, the sweet Spring

“Spring, the sweet spring, is the year’s pleasant king, then blooms each thing, then maids dance in a ring, cold doth not sting, the pretty birds do sing:
Cuckoo, jug-jug, pu-we, to-witta-woo!”
Thomas Nashe

Hello my lovelies!

I don’t know what your weather looks like, but today I feel a hint of spring on it’s way. Nothing makes me happier than being able to put on my rain boots, and maybe reverting to the child inside of me and enjoying splashing through the puddles!

I paired my favorite rain boots with my new DIY skirt I made over the weekend and a chambray!

Tip Tuesday: Spring trends

Hey gals!

Today I thought I’d talk about one of the spring trends that was seen on the Runways during fashion week, wavy hair.

I personally LOVE wavy hair and in fact it’s my go to look all summer long. The waves that rocked the runway( sorry, bad pun) this season were more loose and natural looking than the beachy look of last season.

Last season:

This season:

20140303-220306.jpg

As you can see, last season was more structured and full, takes a little more time( unless you are blessed with wavy hair already) whereas this season it’s more easily attained by braiding your hair. You can do two pigtail plaits, or go fancy and do two French braid plaits, or even one French braid, or like I’m about to show you, a crown braid. What’s great about this style is you can sleep in it, and just take it out the next morning and save yourself a lot of time doing your hair before work!

Check out my very first video ever and learn how I do a crown braid!
(note: I sprayed it one more time after I finished braiding with the same sea salt spray)

And here’s the final look this morning!

20140304-081104.jpg

I fluffed it out, and then used some of the same salt spray and styled it. It’s seriously one of the easiest and quickest ways to do my hair and it looks great all day! Try this fun spring trend yourself, and if you are not quite ready to tackle the crown braid, you can always do regular braids! Also, I prefer braids to a triple barrel iron, I think the triple barrel looks way too 80’s!

Have a lovely day!

March comes in like a Lion.

Hello lovelies!

Hope your Monday is going well. Mines very busy, so I’m typing this up on my lunch! I spent the morning shoveling well over 5 inches of snow, so no outfit post, but I will share with you a few things!

First off, I won this AWESOME Rebecca Minkoff Purse last night! I reposted and tagged a photo on Instagram last week and lo and behold, I won! Can’t wait for this beauty to arrive in the mail!

My Sunday Funday was filled with DIYs since the weather looked like this

1511007_10153908511905525_2050818182_n

I made fresh banana bread( although my dang oven is very annoying and it got a little browner than I wanted, baking is NOT my forte) it was still delish once you cut off the darker parts.

I also picked up jersey knit to make some pencil skirts for work. I got my material for under $30 and got three skirts with leftovers to make a few turbands and maybe a addition to a shirt.

Then I bought a sweater and started this little graphic saying shirt

And last but not least, I updated my chalkboard for March! I love having a chalkboard in my kitchen to draw on. Although my talent is nowhere near my friends, it’s a learning process

20140303-134645.jpg

Hope you all had a lovely weekend and a smooth Monday, keep your eyes open for the styling of my new skirts and of my new purse when I get it!!

Weekend roundup: February 28-March 2nd

Hello Lovelies!

I hope you are enjoying your weekend. We’ve had the weirdest weather the past few days, a very very cold snap and blizzard like wind and snow. I’m crossing my fingers and hoping it doesn’t snow as much as they predict this weekend, because I’m tired of shoveling the snow!

Yesterday my honey and I spent the morning together, we ventured out in the nasty yuck weather for a cup of coffee and breakfast at Old European where I tried for the first time ever, Eggs Benedict….. And I loved them! I’m not generally a fan of runny eggs, but they made them over medium for me and so they were slightly runny and oh so delicious when mixed with hollandaise sauce.

Then last night my boss got us box seat tickets to go watch our local hockey team, the Spokane Chiefs play their rival, the Tri-cities. It was a disappointing game because we lost 0-3 but it was a fun time to hang out with my boss, his friends and kids and my co workers.

Here’s my outfit post from last night! And some goofy pictures of us at the game!

I just adore that man. He makes me laugh all the time, and will do some of the stupidest things with me, like skipping while holding hands as we walked out of the hockey game( yes we are both almost 30!) we are very young at heart. Every day I’m more and more thankful for him, and so happy to have been blessed with someone who is fast becoming my best friend.

For the rest of this weekend, I shall be working on some DIY projects, unpacking after house sitting all week and making banana bread and catching up on Downton Abbey! Enjoy your Sunday Funday!

||Fabulous Friday Finds:February 28, 2014||

Check out my fab finds this week!!
I just love these skinny jeans form Old Navy. I don’t usually buy jeans from there, but I could help myself. These are perfectly distressed and and super comfy. I also scored the red flats, and cant wait for the weather to warm up so I can wear them soon! The utility jacket has been featured a few times on my blog currently and its going to be a staple in my closet for spring. Sorry not sorry for the copious amounts of that jacket you will see. And I got my glasses from Bonlook this week and Im in love with them!
