Hello Kitty Soda and KISS

Howdy!!

I typically am not a soda drinker, but occasionally I will indulge and have one. I did just that, late last night, living on the wild side and opening up a bottle of Hello Kitty strawberry soda to get the weekend started!! Yay.

I really love this outfit…and the socks!! In fact, I love this outfit so much, and I find it so endearing, that I just might propose to myself on Valentine’s Day.

I found my KISS album, and this made me so happy. It’ll be playing in my car all weekend! YEEEAH! ❀️

See ya next time! πŸ’œ

Are These Hearts Big Enough?

They could be bigger. BUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I think they are the perfect size to balance my gigantic hair. It’s February, a.k.a Valentine’s month, SO IT’S ON! Let the pinks, reds, and hearts fly! πŸ’•β€οΈ

I made these bad boys (the heart clips). I have another pair in red, too! They bring me great joy.Β 

This past week, I successfully made chocolates – something I’ve been wanting to do for a LONG time. I’m experienced with baking sugar cookies (my signature ones I’ve made throughout the years with edible glitter, pearls and flowers).

But chocolates are new to me, and they came out way better than I hoped for! I’m going to make some more this week as gifts to a couple of friends. πŸ˜„

eeeeeeeeeeee!!! Don’t they look so cute? The colors!!! The chocolate ones are semi-sweet. The pink ones are made out of candy melts. I’m super excited to experiment with baby blue, yellow, and lavender. Of course, I’m even more excited to present these to my friends and see what they think! 😍

See ya next time!

Suit & Tie

Howdy, folks!! πŸ’•

Do you ever go back and resurrect styles you found yourself wearing in your youth?

Many moons ago when I was in middle school, I had a thing for wearing ties and blazers to school. Naturally, kids made fun of me for it and I was called all sorts of things that aren’t printable here. But it didn’t matter if I was the uncoolest kid on the block; I liked my ties and I wore them!

I found this old tie from middle school and I’m bringing them out for air again. I really love the look!

Because ties aren’t just for men, you know?

I know I’m going to have fun with ties now; I can picture all the neat looks I can create. πŸ’•

Current (amazing) read. ❀️ Further insight for my perpetual intrigue regarding life behind the Iron Curtain.

See ya!!

Free as a Bird

Happy mid-week, everyone! I hope you all have had a nice one so far. ❀

I bring to you today, my bird shirt. I bought it at H&M awhile ago, but decided to wear it today on a whim! (It was buried in one of my dresser drawers honestly, and I found it again).

I’m all about quirky prints. To me, this outfit almost has a nautical look to it with the blue and white, and the birds could be seagull-esque…

oxfords

I’ve always wanted Oxford-like shoes, but wasn’t sure how they’d look with my style. I went back and forth between wearing them, and actually, I really like them! I think these will be perfect for fall/winter, to keep my feet warm. I got these at Wet Seal last year, but I seldom ever wore them. I plan to change that and put them to good use this season! πŸ™‚

So, with the fall season, I start to gravitate towards candles…and look at what we have here! This is seriously one of the BEST smelling candles, ever. I always love Bath & Body Works’ seasonal scented candles…they come out with some amazing-smelling ones. Can’t wait to light this and cozy up on the couch with a book!

Speaking of cozy…here are some inspirational autumn photos to get you in the mood for this wonderful time of year!

Solar Eclipse!

Greetings, earthlings! Who else got to see the solar eclipse?! (Note: I made yet another headband, and those are sunflower buttons, but could easily pass for little suns, no?)

I make it sound like I was in the path of totality. Nope! Still, I saw a change in the sky color and shadows on the ground over the span of an hour before it reached its peak of 75% totality, so I generally enjoyed the experience nonetheless! πŸ™‚

I actually wore this outfit yesterday, but I was probably subconsciously anticipating the solar eclipse. I get really into things…

LOL!

…the pencil shoes are BACK.

As in, I haven’t worn them in like 3 years! I’m not sure why, or maybe I thought they didn’t pair well with my outfits, but I gave them another go and now I’ve fallen in love with them again. I bought them on ModCloth long ago, but they must be popular because they still have themΒ available!

I hope everyone had an enjoyable weekend and your week is starting out nicely! ❀
