Sweet Valentine

Hello, hello! Boy am I glad to be doing this Valentine’s Day post!!! ❤ I’ve been looking forward to it. I really love how my outfit turned out, and plus, it was a great day to boot.

Valentine’s Day is a fun day, whether you are single or taken, in my opinion! Celebrating it as a single person, I made the day fun in a variety of ways. Sit back, and enjoy!

First of all; has anyone reading tried the limited time Cherry Mocha drink at Starbucks? Ohhhh my goodness. It’s delicious! Mocha with cherry? Yes, please! So this, needless to say, started the day off right!

I made sugar cookies for my office! I went a different route and put no frosting on them and instead, put little conversation hearts. I love how they came out; although, they were a bit crunchier than I would have liked (I prefer very soft cookies).

Y’all KNEW I’d go all out for this day, am I right?

The dress is from Forever 21! I love the vintage vibe, and I wore my headband and ring that I made myself. 🙂 I felt like a little Valentine’s Day princess all day.

And quite honestly, I’m ending the night with pizza at my house. I always get myself pizza on Valentine’s Day – it’s a tradition at this point, and I have a tendency to spoil myself on this day of the year! ❤

Did you all enjoy your Valentine’s Day? I sure hope so!

‘Til next time!

To Everything, There is a Season

Hello again! I hope you all enjoyed your weekend; I had a Valentine’s Day activity on Friday night that I’d like to share with you all because it was really cool! Maybe you’ll get inspired by it. 😉

I was asked by a group of girls at church if I could host a Valentine’s Day card-making activity. Since I’m all about the arts and crafts, I was quick to agree to it. It turned out great!

The set up came out really cute, and it reminded me of elementary school when we’d use construction paper to make things. Memories… ❤

These were my two sample cards I made so the girls could get inspiration while making their own cards. The first one was more old-fashioned and the second has more of a quirky/fun look.

There really is something about making a card from scratch!

Outfit of the Day

This is one of those skirts that I have worn a trillion times, and will continue to wear it until it’s no longer wearable. Even then, I’ll probably do everything I can to fix it and make it last! I bought it at Forever 21 YEARS ago. It’s held up very well.

Do you have a clothing item that has always stuck with ya? No matter how long you’ve had it, you love it so much that you’ll do anything to keep it in good condition and you can’t part with it?

I’m LOVING this new mesh top from Forever 21!!! It has little rhinestones all over it. In the sun, it really sparkles.

The rhinestones are AB rhinestones, so when the light hits them, they’re multi-colored. So beautiful! I just bought this top on Saturday, so it should still be in stores if you’re interested.

As you can see in the photo below, the skirt was worn again soon after in a different outfit. 😛

Saturday was such a beautiful day and unseasonably warm! It was the first day that felt like it was spring, and it had me feeling all sorts of dreamy-eyed and wanting to be outdoors. I did just that and went for a walk in the late afternoon, and it had me in such a great mood.

Do seasons do that to you? I feel similar when fall starts. Spring though is such a unique time of year. The air smells sweet and it’s wonderful to go for a walk without getting a chill.  Now I await for the blossom trees to be in full bloom. Some people dislike the smell, but I love them (and love looking at them).

And then, I always end up listening to 60’s music when I go for a springtime walk. To me, 60’s music really fits for spring and also summer. It’s that carefree vibe.

I know there’s still winter left to be had, but I really can’t wait until spring arrives. It makes my heart full. ❤

‘Til Next Time!
