I found this Etsy shop and I love their headpieces/hairpieces, whatever you want to call them!

They are so cute, and super affordable. They would be perfect for a fun, summer wedding, or just any time you feel like it.

I am a huge fan of feathers and flowers and wearing things in my hair, so I will definitely be ordering one of these soon!

The royal wedding definitely inspired me to look up and find pretty fascinators to wear, and this shop on Etsy fits the bill!

Go take a look at this shop and I hope it inspires you!

Currently Obsessing

Saw Black Swan over the weekend. Crazy good. Literally. Crazy and good. Natalie Portman can play insane quite well. Anyways, watching the movie just reinforced my love for two things: ballet and feathers. Everyone who knows me, figured I would love the movie on those two features alone!

I have loved ballet since I was a little girl and was dragged along to every class and recital of my sister's ballet days. It's so funny, I loved it and wanted to be a ballerina so badly. She ended up not loving it and left. She had the amazing technique, me - eh, not so much, but I had the stage presence she lacked. If you had combined us, we would have made an amazing dancer. Only if you minus the fact that we are not built to be ballerinas! I am guessing my early love of ballet, and especially toe shoes, are what led to my love of shoes in general. I think I love heels so much because I love the fantasy, much like toe shoes. They both suspend you off the ground for a little while, allowing me to keep my head in the clouds just a little bit longer.

 Please excuse me for being a bad blogger and just using the first images I found on Google. Love them though!

Shopping for impossible to find 3" (for a pair of work pants, I'd prefer taller!) round toe brown leather pumps and these are a few pairs I came across that I am DYING over. Wish I could buy these like NOW!


If anyone knows where to get a good deal on those brown shoes I mentioned earlier, please let me know!

Hopeless Romantic

I was watching The Sound of Music and forgot how much I love the movie, not to mention the fashion from the 1930's and 1940's. I am such a hopeless romantic, I want to sing and dance in the rain, in a courtyard under moonlight, and at a ball wearing a ball gown. Even though I did not live during this time period, I miss the glamour and sophistication of this era. Men and women dressed for every occasion, where did this formality go and why does it not exist anymore? Watching movies like this tempt me to be an actress because I want to create magic, like the feelings that sweep over me when I watch The Sound of Music or basically any musical.

Here are just some pictures that I loved and wish that I could wear right now!

I die for a great, dramatic hat and ensemble!
Found at
Can't talk about the '30s without the great Coco Chanel, found at
Wish I could find a better picture, but the Baroness' clothes in The Sound of Music are to die for!

One day, I will have the chance to dress up and attend a ball and dance under the moonlight. At least a girl can dream right?

Can't believe I haven't blogged since March 24th. I miss the blog but I haven't felt that anything in my life is worth blogging right now. I have been doing a lot of complaining and I feel that everyone around me has had enough of that. So, until I can figure out something positive to blog about, the silence will continue.

I just have to say sorry to everyone who has had to listen to me being whiny and annoying the past few months. I promise I am working on changing that! Love you all for sticking with me and still listening to me complain. I appreciate it more than you'll ever know!!

Hello Friend!

I have been having a really good week. I feel like talking about it is going to jinx it, but I just want to celebrate some happiness, so I'm throwing caution to the wind! Finally found a new place to live (woo!), the job is going good, and my friends are awesome. I really am lucky to have some of the best friends a girl could ever want. My friends don't judge me, they tell me the truth, pick me up when I am down, and keep me going through the storm. They are always there to talk to, to laugh with, to shop with, to cry with. Sometimes I stop to think about what my life would be without these people and then I shake my head because it just wouldn't be possible, I wouldn't have made it this far without them. 

I recently had a toxic group of "friends" that I had known for many years. I thought that we were all close and that one of these girls was my "best friend". Do not pass go, do not collect your lifetime friendship card on that one! Found out that this person made fun of me and talked about me and my problems behind my back, and about everyone else in the group as well. Really person? After everything I went through, you thought you had the right to judge me because we were "best friends"? Well, me being the super mature woman that I am, I got a few jabs in and then just stopped talking to this group of people. At that point in my life, I had so much going on, I just didn't have the energy to confront and yell and get angry at that person. They obviously didn't care that much about me, so I stopped caring about them. Honestly, my life has been so much better without them that I wish I had done it sooner! I can be myself around my friends now and not have to pretend to be someone or something I'm not. I can like what I want and not be ridiculed for it. Sure, my friends may laugh at me for what I like, but they never make me feel bad for it.

 True friends will definitely keep it 100 with you at all times but never make you feel like less of a person. I just wanted to write this quick post as a HUGE thank you to my friends. I know I couldn't make it through this life without you. Thank you for making me who I am today. Oh and I hope you like me, because you are stuck with me now!

You Know You're Excited..

1. Today I am wearing sweats and my Cowboys t-shirt (the best bar in the entire world!).

2. My favorite childhood food was peanut butter and my favorite food now is pretty much anything, sushi and mexican top the list though!

3. A day that I am too busy to __eat __is a day that I am too busy.

4. The last movie I saw was "Snow White" and the next movie I want to see is something in the theater because I haven't had movie theater popcorn in far too long!

5. My favorite smell is anything citrusy because, it smells fresh and clean .

6. A weird little quirk I have is don't touch my neck, oh and my bathroom repulsions (aren't you just dying to know more about me?).

7. When I take personality quizzes they always say I'm boring. haha no, I don't know! what would you guys say?

I really don't have anything to write about just yet. No amazing inspirations or muses have come into my life lately. It's just been life. Still waiting to win the lotto. Still working and wishing and hoping for all of my dreams to come true.  

Really wishin' I had this to come home to:

Doesn't it look so inviting and refreshing and scream "SLEEP IN ME!" ?
