OOTD/Peace Sign

I hope everyone had an amazing Memorial Day!

My family had a delicious cook out dinner, which of course they had to send me numerous photos of while I was at work. I was surprised at how many people went to restaurants o Memorial Day.

But any who, here is my OOTD::

I will also be wearing the outfit like this today J

Oh I almost forgot here is my song of the day enjoy J

I love this song and I think it sends a great message J

Lazy day Sunday

I saw this quote and I couldn't resist posting it because, well I completely agree with it.

"Weekends don't count unless you spend them doing something completely pointless.  ~Bill Watterson"

I have absolutely no plans other than being a bum and spending time with the parental unit. This left me with nothing to really talk about. So I will stop babbling and leave you with 2 songs that I am enjoying at the moment .

Hope you enjoy them too. J

Recap on Shopping

So like I said yesterday I will start this post off with a song. It is by Florence and The Machine. The song is The Dog Days are Over. I haven’t quit pinpointed what exactly draws me to this song, but for some reason I can’t take it off of repeat or get it out of my head. The word for this song for me would have to be addicting J but in a good way.

I suggest listening to this song while reading the post, because this is what we listened to all day. It might give you a glimpse into our fun filled day.  J

If the video doesn't work for what ever reason here is a link that will take you to the song::: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ny4deVFsYuo

So without further delay here is a recap of yesterdays shopping trip. Oh I fibbed to you guys, I ended up wearing a dress not jeans because we all decided that we should look cute since we would be out in public J

Getting ready for the shopping

We had lunch at Lime 
that's all I have to say

Meet My Lovely Ladies J

Becca on the left and Leslie on the right


Courtney (ME)

I tried to take pictures throughout the day, but I got distracted by all of the stores. I luckily remembered to take pictures at our last stop. Charming Charlie's I don't know if any of you have heard of it, I didn't until the ladies told me about it yesterday. Once we got in the store it was accessories heaven!

They sell everything from hair clips, purses, dresses, necklaces, you name it they have it.

How cute is this dress 

Love this dress for a fun night out.
Would you buy a dress like this?

We all made it home just before it started to rain like cats and dogs. This left me with a few minutes to spear, so I decided to take everyone's picture of what they bought for the day.
Dress from Heritage 1981
(An extension of Forever 21)

The shoes where Alyse's prior to this trip.
Don't they just go perfect adds a pop of color

Leslie was feeling the neon vibe and bought
the leggings with a dark grey to tone down the

Purchased at Heritage 1918

I got this amazing blazer at Forever 21. It was the last one left,
and it was in my size. I took it as a sign that it was a must have

This is a silk tank top, which I feel will go with anything, i.e
jeans, skirts (colored or just plain black)
Purchased at Forever 21

These 2 necklaces were bought at Charming Charlie's
The feather/leaf necklace was roughly $9 the flower one
was originally $10 but was marked down 75% off
coming out to a whooping $2

Over all I would say the day was a success! Hope you all had a great Friday. It is supposed to rain here all weekend, but maybe we'll get lucky and the weather man will be wrong. Hope the weather holds up for everyone.

Enjoy the long weekend, kick back and relax J

TGIF and a long weekend who can complain :)

I don't know about you guys but the other day I came to the realization that I tend to wake up to a song and it seems 9 times out of 10 it sets the tone for the day. The whole point of me stating this is that I think I will from now on open this blog with a song of the day

Heres my choice today::

This is by 'N Sync or you can listen to the orignal which is by Johnny Kemp they're both called Just got paid:

Thank God it's Friday night and I
just-just-just-just-juuuuuuust got paid
(money, money, money, money...)
yeah, ohh...

Only I didn't just get paid but I do have tons of gift cards that I can spend. Which brings me to my goals for the day. I plan to go shopping with the ladies (we made these plans last night while doing or nails), and hopefully go see the Hangover 2. I'm super excited I loved the first one (and yes I even saw it with my parents). Not as awkward and uncomfortable as one may think (we joke now that its a family movie BUT UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES IS IT A FAMILY MOVIE) thats my disclaimer for the day.

Again it looks like its going to rain cats and dogs, so I'm not putting to much effort into my outfit plus the fact that I plan on trying on a ton of clothes so I just wore jeans and a blah top.

More excitedly here are some pictures from last night :) It was a beautiful night with just us four girls. We at pizza and chips.
My tackle box of polish
Love it got it at the container store
Totally worth the money 
                  My Konad stamps and Bundle Moster stamp

My amazing friends humoring me while I  take
copious amounts of photo
Their conditions and terms were though that they
had to end up on the blog (like that was even an option)
Me being all cheesy 

Neon Pink with rhinestones and
OPI-Ogre the Top Blue with white flowers
Wet n Wild-Blazed and Orly- Lemonade
with teal and pink paisley

Neon Pink with white zebra strips and  a black bow

The light blue/teal is Orly-Gumdropthe dark blue has a white French tip

She would only let me take a picture of her nails
   humph maybe we'll get a face picture next time
OPI- Mermaid Tears

We never got around to doing the face masks we were really focused on our nails and gossiping that by the time we looked up it was already 11 so we decided to save them of another night

Does anyone have any plans for tonight/the long weekend?

Ladies.... It's ladies night

This song is officially stuck in my head now

"Oh yes it's ladies night and the feeling's right
Oh yes it's ladies night, oh what a night, oh what a night!" -Kool and the Gang "Ladies Night"

.Any who in all seriousness tonight is ladies night for my friends and I J Now that everyone is home from college we decided that tonight was a must have. We'll get to do facials, mani's and pedi's and of course we have to have the chick flicks and junk food J

Last time we had ladies night we tried to make our own home made face masks but it didn’t turn our so well. So this time we are going to try these::

I'll let you know how it goes

And of course we have to have our  infamous pizza and chocolate 

just no where as nice looking 

While i run around and get everything ready for tonight I thought I should at least look a little fashionable so heres my OOTD:: 
Don't let the sun in this photo fool you
There is a big rain cloud waiting
for me to get ready to do my errand

So I have brought my handy dandy jacket
just in case it starts to rain and the places I go
are cold inside.

Hope everyone has a great day J . Does anyone have plans for this lovely Thursday night?

Go to outfits for the summer::

        Even though summer can be a relaxing time of the year it is also the hottest. So what should one wear on those ridiculously hot days? Here’s my go to summer essentials. Hope they give you inspiration J

One can never have to many dresses
during the summer
Tanks and Light weight tunics are a must

Skirts are a cute way to look nice while still staying cool
oh and at least one staple pair of jeans is nessary 

 Here are my favorites from the piles above

I love playing with colors
in the summer

This dress helps me feel pulled
together while looking causal
Add a belt with this and the skirt
below and voila you have an outfit
This top and a a pair of jeans
is a perfect errands outfit


Ironically the tops and bottoms were placed exactly how i wear them J I didn't even mean to.

Hope they give you inspiration J

Nail Polishes for Summer

  Summer is the time for fun in the sun, time to let your hair down or back in a pony tail if it’s too hot. Summer is time for fun bright colors while tropical themes swirl in the air. It’s time to relax by the  pool/beach with a nice drink in your hand. So what is the best accessory to wear with your outfits or bathing suits that don’t leave a tan line? Glad you asked. Its nail polishes of course! Nail polish is the best way to accent or highlight a certain color and really show off your tan.  

Here are a few of my summer picks from my outrageously large collection of polish 

 Left to Right: OPI-Ogre the top blue, China Glaze-Turned up Turquoise, Essie-Turquoise &Caicos, Orly-Gumdrop, Orly-Lemonade, 10-Spring Awakening, 10-Prima Ballerina, NYC-Fuchsia Shock Creme

Hope the color wheel give you some ideas

But don’t forget some sunscreens can affect the color of your polish.

Hope everyone has a colorful summer!
