A Little Update...

A lot can happen in three weeks.  For me, the past few weeks have meant discovering a case of strep throat, treating it with an antibiotic, finding out I'm allergic to said antibiotic, suffering from a rash from the allergic reaction, and working long hours on top of it all.  I haven't had much time to even think about my blog, and the free time I did have I just needed to rest and relax.  So, never fear - I'm still here!  Now, if I can just figure out how to get some more photo storage space so I can make more posts.  It seems as though somehow the template of my blog has been messed up as well.  Fun times.  Please stand by during technical difficulties!       

I found this fun pic on Pinterest and had to share.  After all, identifying the problem is the first step to possibly admitting it is an actual problem, right?

Memory Lane Mondays

I have been contemplating adding another post day to my current blog line-up for a few months now.  I just could never pinpoint exactly what I wanted to do.  After much deliberation, here it is!  Mondays will be for highlighting nostalgia related to fashion, beauty, etc.  A day where I can share with you things from my pre-blogger life, whether it be outfits, snapshots, etc.  

For the first ever installment, I wanted to share with you this gem of an old photo we recently found while digging through boxes of family photographs.

Ensemble Saturdays: You Blog, You Learn

I have been blogging not even a year yet, but have learned plenty along the way so far.  I know I have much more waiting ahead, but even so, I can share with you some tips - learning from/poking fun of my own mistakes mishaps.

Useful DIY Tips for Everyday Life: Monkey See, Monkey Do

The general rule of thumb I learned from my mother many years ago (mentioned in this post) is that if you see something you like, you can probably make it yourself...within your skill set, of course.  I'm not going to try and recreate the Sistine Chapel ceiling if I can't paint well, but I may try to copy a cute bracelet I saw on Pinterest, like I did here.  This is the beauty of DIY!  Anything can be inspiration!

Ensemble Saturdays: Pushing the Limits of Comfort

Ever buy something that you normally don't wear but convince yourself it's a fashion experiment?  Or maybe your S.O. isn't a big fan of it?  Well, allow me to introduce you to these harem pants!
