these Goats pick me up! It’s been a long day. I had to work late and miss the gym, my health insurance crooked me out of $260 (which I will fight relentlessly), and I accidentally selected baked potato on my seamless order instead of baked beans. To say I was cranky is an understatement…but then, these goats! Not only are they named after one of my top shows, but they are so darn cute. Thanks #Goatsofanarchy!

I love dresses, but it’s very difficult to find dresses that I like. My usual go to stores to hunt for a dress are Alice and Olivia, Club Monaco, Nordstrom, and Anthropologie. Today, I decided to check out http://www.freepeople.com and found dress heaven! They have so many beautiful dresses and it took me close to an hour to get through them all. I picked my 9 favorite dresses above which would all be perfect for Valentine’s day. The fact that I had to limit myself to 9 favorites speaks volumes for their selection, because it is rare for me to find just 1 that I like. Happy Valentine’s day shopping!

Blizzardly Monday Dreaming

2015/01/img_5026.jpg

The blizzard is in full swing outside, lucky for me I was able to head home early. Besides the annoyance of my wifi not working and my inability to log in to work, I am cozily sitting on the couch, side by side with Mike (who was able to log in and work), awaiting my Texas Rotisserie, drinking Teavana. It’s days like today that I heavily fantasize about all things warm and sunny. Today’s dream surrounds the Jersey Shore, which due to Mike and his family, I have been able to spend much time with, and thus, fallen in love.

Learning How to Sleep

Tags


Sleeping has been a difficult task for me lately, which historically is rarely an issue. In fact, I have always prided myself on being able to fall asleep just about anywhere and everywhere. There are many factors contributing to my lack of sleep these days, some of which I can not change for the time being. I have gotten so sensitive about my lack of sleep, that if Mike happens to accidentally wake me up, I get angry, an unfair and unwarranted angry. Usually I would easily and swiftly fall back asleep. But right now, being awoken, after how long it took to fall asleep, is detrimental. I of course apologize, as it is the lack of sleep talking, not actually me! I have tried several things: a noise machine, a dehumidifier, getting in bed a couple hours before I actually have to sleep, wine, night time cold medicine, and just being exhausted. I am at a point where I feel like I have forgotten how to fall asleep. Maybe I need to re-learn. Continue reading

5 Minute Perfect Hair

2015/01/img_5878.jpg

I hate waking up for work but most of all, I hate doing my hair for work. I have long hair which unfortunately for us long haired girls, takes effort to maintain. I’ll admit, some days I do a pony tail or a top knot which takes even less than 5 minutes and is what happens when I’m feeling REALLY lazy. The only planning this takes is washing and air drying your hair the night before. I have gotten so lazy that I even go to bed with it wet. I wake up to sometimes it either being fully dry or still damp but either way works! I take a blow dryer to my bangs and the hairs just around my face. Continue reading

Nanna the Beautiful

http://instagram.com/p/yGg7vbnqUI/

Around this time every winter I begin to heavily fantasize about summer. While browsing through my photo roll searching for anything summer related I came across this gem! My Nanna is one of the most amazing people I have ever known. Her ability to always be so positive, poised and full of wisdom surpasses my understanding. I love this picture because I feel all of these qualities of hers coming through the photo, but what I also notice is how fabulous and timeless her style is. All of these items I would wear today. If only she still has those shoes! I love you Nanna, today you are the inspiration for my blog, but you are inspiration in my life everyday and have shaped me in to the woman I am today.
