Stinkin’ Groundhog!

2 Feb

Well, the little groundhog said “forget this! More winter!!!”

If this bums you out a bit too, no worries.  Bring spring in a little early.

Ditch the dark polish, and slick on the pastels.

No judgement here if you pick the grey!!!  My nails are medium grey, with white moons.  If you aren’t sure how to do the moon highlight mani, I did a tutorial here

Enjoy your little bit of spring!!




A spoonful of decorations

This Wreath

Is made completely

Out of spoons

A little spray paint and glue goes a heck of a long way.

Give it a try.  If you hate it, it only cost a couple of dollars anyways!

Project Gone Wrong..Or Right?!

25 Sep

Well, this didn’t turn out exactly how I had planned… 

You see the idea was to dye one of Husbands white tee shirts.  It was the perfect length to be a shirt dress for me (he is 6 foot, I am 5 2′).  I was trying to dye it black with liquid Rit dye.  The directions said to stir constantly for an hour, less the dye stick to some spots, and not so much to others.  Looking at my sink filled with black inky liquid, and my soon to be awesome tee-shirt, I thought “Nope… I havent the time nor the patience to stir anything for an hour.”

This is what I ended up with.


To my horror, I was left with a Dark blue/gray splotched tee shirt, that had not only shrunk three sizes, but now looked like a hot mess.  If I learned anything from my Mom, it is to take a deep breath, and find a plan B.  It wasnt at all what I had in mind, BUT it wasnt awful.

So I am going to wear it anyways.  C’est  La vie!



Dress Shorts

23 Sep

I have always been in love with dressy shorts.  Since I am a stay at home mom/blog writer, I have no need to wear tailored or work-esque pieces.  I bought myself some dress shorts anyways!!!

The problem I had for a while was figuring out how to accessorize them.


Accessories Make the difference, yes?
