Life Lately

This is from last weekend when we went to hang out in downtown...kissy pics are kinda my favorite.
 2. I recently joined poshmark and I bought these gorgeous gold shoes about 20 minutes after setting up my profile. I just couldn't help myself...they are sooooooooo cute!
3. Hey Scar, I'm trying to get a cute pic of my flowers! This crazy cat is always photoboming me.
4. While everyone at the beginning of the year was chomping on their salads, me and chris were like, large pepporoni please lol 
5. Over the weekend I got to pull these babies out. It's now currently cold outside...like freezing. I can't wait for spring to hurry up and get here!
 6. Making shopping wish lists come true makes me my heart happy. I had put this super cute bag on my wish list about 2 1/2 months ago...really excited to call it mine now.
7. My niece just turned 11...I can't even believe where the time goes. This was her deliciously good cake we celebrated with.
8. A little sprinkle here, a little sprinkle there is my current situation whenever there is chocolate, ice cream, or cake.
9. I'm still practicing my hand lettering with watercolor...this is the latest.
10. My new phone case! I like it so much that I like to match it and then take selfies lol but I do have to say my old phone cat case will forever be missed...cat lady for life.

Happy Weekend y'all. Hope it's a good one!

Nail Tutorial // Valentine's Day

 Okay, please tell me that I'm not the only one with Valentine's day already on my mind? I'm just one of those girls that gets really excited about all the pink overload and super cute hearts on everything. Which is why I thought we could all use a nail tutorial with a super cute heart...your welcome :)
1. Start by painting your nails with a pretty pink and one accent nail with white.
2. Take a black nail art pen and make thin stripes across the white accent nail.
3. Use a ball point nail tool to form the shape of a heart.
4. Once the heart is completely dry, trace in black with the nail art pen.
5. Let nails dry and top with a clear coat.

Mandatory Style

 It's been pretty cool lately, which mean leggings with everything is what I've been wearing. It's pretty much been my mandatory style all throughout last week. I wore this bright romper with my leggings out while brunching with Chris. I actually loved that you could see the romper coming through my sheer blouse...I think it added just the right amount of interest to what could have been a boring black outfit.

Celebration Little Black Dress

Tee: American Eagle, Dress: H&M, Tights: Target, Boots: H&M 
Yesterday Chris got some good news about a job opportunity and we decided to have a celebration dinner. Now usually I go and get all dressed up for no reason, but it was nice to actually feel pretty and dressy with a real reason to celebrate and be happy about. Oh and we just got a cold front out here in Texas and I have been freezing my butt off. So thankful for long sleeve tees, tights, and boots right now.
Happy Weekend!

DIY // Mini Journal

 With the new year finally here, I decided that what I needed was a small journal to carry around in my purse for when blog ideas come to mind. I like the idea of being able to physically write something down rather than just keeping it stored away on my phone. Plus it's a lot cuter than a boring notepad app.
1. Gather an assortment of scrapbook pages. I decided to cut 8.5x11 sheets in half to make a mini journal.
2. Arrange your sheets in the order you want for your journal and make a crease down the middle.
3. Hole punch your sheets at the top, middle, and bottom. You may have to do a few sheets at a time.
4. Place all your pages back together and tie with pieces of twine.
5. Decorate the cover, I used a simple pattern drawn with a black sharpie and some washi tape.
So cute and all done!
