A Rose so Red

IMG_0740

Hello again, and welcome!

I hope everyone has enjoyed their weekend. Mine is a 3-day weekend due to President’s Day here in the States! It’s been a quiet, peaceful one for me. Lately I’ve been finding myself searching for artistic inspiration; it can come from anywhere really, so I’m always on the look out. That, and I’ve been reading – reading a lot. I find myself going to bed earlier just so I can get a bulk of reading in before I officially go to sleep.

I’m finishing up yet another military book at the moment, and when I’m done, I think my next read will be something on the Gulf War. That’s one I know very little, if anything, about.

Hahahaha, notice the mug? It’s a Christmas mug! The size is so perfect though, that I end up using it year round at home.

Check out my new roses! My sister made them for me upon request, and they turned out so beautiful. These will perk up any plain top or dress and instantly adds a feminine touch.

I HAVE to show off my new nails!!! These are my favorite nails I’ve ever had done! I am still amazed at how beautiful they came out. The manicurist had never done glitter ombré nails before, so she was just as amazed at the outcome! These are my dream nails come true. ❤

I took this photo on Saturday; I ate dinner outside of my favorite natural food store called Lassen’s. A book, some vegan food and a water fountain as background noise = perfection.

Okay, so my sister has been crocheting up a storm and she made me a FLOWER COASTER. I now use this any time I’m at a coffee shop. I whip it out from my purse and booooom…serves a dual purpose of looking pretty and absorbing condensation when I get a cold drink!

That’s all for now! See you next time!

Pretty in Pink

Helloooo! 🙂

I guess it’s no surprise what my favorite color is? I can’t get enough of pink. My outfit here says it all. Pink, pink, pink…

I think pink and grey are two colors that go really well together. Something about the muted light grey and bright pink makes it really pop! I think my absolute favorite color combination would have to be pink and gold, though. ❤

Hard to see in the pictures, so I’ve provided a close-up of my newest statement ring creation! I love Day of the Dead stuff, and I wanted to make something for it (even though it’s still a little ways away).

I’d like to take a moment to talk about my new Betsey Johnson bag!!! I got it on sale on Amazon, and it was under half-priced! I am sooo in love with it. It comes in different colors as well, for those of you who aren’t into pink. It’s really spacious, although the purse itself isn’t really that big. I have more than enough room for my things. You can check it out here!

I got my nails re-done this weekend, and oh my goodness, I love how they turned out! I wanted to try something different; normally, I get a neutral opaque color. This time, I wanted to get a sheer, clear color and try a different colored ring fingernail color. I love gold so I went with that shade! ❤

Last but not least, my sister and I went for coffee and macarons on Sunday. These were the passionfruit flavored ones. Yummmm.

I hope everyone is having a great mid-week! See you next time!

 

 

 

 

 

Random Little Things…

This morning I had the cutest breakfast ever: sweet potato bread with berries! ❤ I’m not a breakfast person, but I had a busy morning ahead of me so I needed something.

New nails. 🙂 I got them done last night. It’s so hard for me to decide what kind of nails I want, but I tend to go with pastel colors. Pale, shimmery pink this time!

As you can see from the nail pictures, I was reading a book…these are the current books on my reading list. I’m finishing up Band of Brothers (after a second time of reading it!) and next up is No True Glory: A Frontline Account of the Battle for Fallujah. Clearly, you can see that military books are my favorite. 🙂

Today I’m wearing my favorite romper I own…

I’m in a silly mood today so I was taking random photos at my sister’s house. I really love the strawberry hair clip; it’s fun to wear fruit in your hair! 😛

Hope everyone is having a fantastic Tuesday! Mine is going really well, had to take care of business this morning but the rest of the day will be dedicated to being creative and enjoying the sunshine. 🙂 Can’t go wrong with that!
