Say Something Nice

Nov 18, 2014

Something I have noticed, but thankfully have not had to deal with personally, are mean commentators on blogs. I am not sure why people feel the need to tear each other down. I completely understand your personal opinion. Everyone is different, that's what makes the world a great place to live in. We all have the right to say what we think, however it's the people who hid behind "anonymous" and openly spew hate in a place they are not forced to visit that makes me wonder about the world.

That's why, I have decided to spend more of my time going out there and not just reading blogs but commenting kindly on them. It's easy to skim/scan/read a blog post and find it to be really enjoyable but then click away. I need to honestly praise work that I find myself drawn to daily or weekly. So to each of my readers and other bloggers, I just want to say I am so glad you have been so nice and welcoming me to the blogging world and I appreciate all of you. And I urge all of you to do something nice today. Kindness is so very powerful!

Swoonday - Pinning!

Nov 2, 2014

I admit it, during the down parts of my day, I waste time on the all consuming Pinterest. The other day while looking at some home inspiration for a big before/after I am about to take on, I kept coming clicking on one house in particular. The fact that out of millions of pins out there that I was drawn to this house means I had to make it my Swoonday this week. What can I say, sometimes I am just drawn to the simplicity of black and while with a little color added for drama! For more pictures, information, and decorating sources for Kate Davidson's San Francisco home visit The Everygirl blog!








What do you think? Could you live in a mostly black & white house? Do you live for color? What's your favorite decorating color palette?

Hope y'all have a great week!

Dia De Los Muertos

Oct 30, 2014

As I have mentioned before, my company is really into Halloween. For the last few weeks all we have talked about in our department is decorations, costumes, and snacks. And after spending most of the work day today decorating and planning everything out, my department is officially ready to win some Halloween prizes! I thought I was pretty creative when I came up with our theme of Dia De Los Muertos (or Day of The Dead) this year. Surely no one else will even think of this awesome idea--wrong! After making many a trip to Party City, Hobby Lobby, and World Market this week, Dia De Los Muertos definitely seems to be the theme of the year. Fingers crossed no one else came up with the idea in our company. 

As far as my costume, I went out and bought some face paint and watched far too many youtube tutorials on how to recreate the perfect calavera or sugar skull makeup and let me tell you--I am not good with face paint. After hours spent sloppily applying paint to my entire face, I decided to print off a simple mask and just roll with the punches. I am sure it will be better in the long run, since I will be starting my Halloween celebration at 8am and likely going into Saturday morning and face paint might not hold up. Hey, I am not in it to win it, I just like to participate.

Just in case you are looking for some very last minute decorations. Below are some of my favorite Dia De Los Muertos themed ideas this year.

What are your plans for Halloween? Does your office celebrate? Are you dressing up? Or are you not a fan of Halloween?

Fall Wishlist

Oct 24, 2014

I am loving this season's Fall trends. Or at least what I think the trends are, I am not on the cutting edge of fashion trends. Personally, I love neutrals, gold, sweaters, leopard print, stripes and booties! Right now it is feeling perfectly Fall in The South but I know it won't be long until I am trying to bundle up inside and out (my office is kept very cold). Per usual I love navy and green, what can I say, I think they are my colors. And I have been spending far more time on Etsy than I should. I love to support small shops and who doesn't love a handmade piece of jewelry?


Fall Wishlist





What piece of clothing or accessory are you loving this Fall? Is anyone else already planning their Christmas wishlist? Going to send this to Husband and Mom later!

Halloween Playlist

Oct 23, 2014

With Halloween falling on a Friday this year, I think there are going to be a lot of Halloween lovers coming out of hiding and with that a lot of parties. This year, to get into the Halloween spirit , I made a Halloween playlist on Spotify. It's really just a random mix of Halloween favorites. Just a little background music for your spooky night!



Halloween Playlist



I hope y'all enjoy!  Do you have any favorite Halloween songs? What are your plans for Halloween?

Aca Awkward

Oct 17, 2014

First things first. Happy Friday!

Did you get the title? Have you seen Pitch Perfect? Aca-scuse me? If not, I just gave you something to do on your Friday night. You're welcome.


Hahaa so true - Pay us a visit by clicking on the photo in order to check out more on humor and fun. #funny ♥

I find that a lot of times I feel super Aca Awkward. I pretty much just float through life either blending in with the crowd, or feeling awkward. It really makes for interesting times. The other weekend I was feeling so awkward and I thought I wonder how many other people feel this way. So just in case you forgot those awkward moments, I thought I'd share some of mine.

1|| Walking into a store while dressed head to toe in the shops clothes. I promise I shop other places. Please don't think I am shoplifting when I walk out.

2|| Seeing a coworker outside of work. Why is this always so awkward? They like like to drink and have fun like every other person on this planet. And don't get me started on if they are blackout drunk and hit on you. Why'd you have to go and make things weird?

3|| Trying on shoes at a store and the chairs are all taken. Oh I guess I will just shove this on my foot as gracefully as possible while standing.

4|| Being called out while taking a Selfie. Hey, we all do it! No need to call me out random person/coworker/friend. Looks like you won't ever get a selfie from me again.

5|| Telling a joke at work that completely backfires. I am just going to go crawl back into my cubicle now. Please forget that I said anything.

6|| Parallel parking. I am in my 20's and this still causes me stress. Just go around me car, I am probably going to be trying this for about 15 minutes. 

7|| Emailing a buzzfeed link to the wrong person at work. Why must there be so many Michaels and Clays in my office?

8|| Bathroom conversations. Just no. I just want to get in and out of there as quickly as possible.

What about you, what makes you feel awkward?
