Trendy Tuesday

Ah, it's that time of the week again! Up for this weeks trendy Tuesday are the colors Margarita Green, Hawaiian Ocean and Vintage Khaki. Remember the treasury is clickable so if you see something you like or would like to leave a comment please feel free to click, click, click! I love this color scheme because it represents something I miss very much, the beach! Although I chose to not be so literal in the treasury I think the feel still comes across. Enjoy!


For the outfit I chose to create a look that was easy and beautiful. I love the wide legged trouser jeans with cute flats and a floral top. The jewelry pulls the colors together and is simple enough for everyday wear. 

Pantone color set #2

Prizes All Around!

First of all Thank you so much everyone who has been sending love and prayers on twitter and FB. I was in a car accident yesterday morning and am home in a neck brace for the next three days. While backing out of my driveway (to visit my Grandmother who's in the hospital) I was hit from the side by a car who's driver didn't see me. I'm mostly fine but have a very sore neck and am not allowed to drive for three days while the muscles in my neck heal. So, it's been a stressful time here.

Since computer work is easier for me to handle I decided to continue with the blog posts for this week. Thank you ahead of time for your patience in getting out your prizes. Ok, here we go....

Thank you to everyone who entered! I'm doing the results a little differently this time around, that means you ALL get a prize but only one of you gets the ring! Ready?

Freshening Up Our Living Room

I know it isn't the furniture that makes a house a home, but dang it I can't wait to have coordinating pieces instead of the hand me down haven we have going on in here! The thought of spring has me dreaming of color and Polyvore has been helping me create some looks that I will use as guides when we set out shopping for new pieces. I'm so happy my husband loves purple because I'm dying to get an Eggplant purple sofa, or at least a cover for the one we already have. Here's a look I've created based off the purple sofa. Let me know what you think!

Trendy Tuesday

For the start of my Trendy Tuesday posts I'm focusing on the Spring 2012 Pantone fashion color report. In the coming weeks every Tuesday I'll share a color and a few items I find on Etsy that coordinate with it! Yes, I'll focus on both the women's and men's colors! Are you ready? Here we go!

Ah, spring! I know I can't wait for it, the freshness in the air, new life, and warmth. Makes me want it now! This spring the Pantone color report is calling for mixes of pastel and neon along with soft neutrals to make your outfits pop. Today we focus on Sodalite Blue and Granita. Enjoy!


I couldn't resist adding an outfit post! What a great spring date outfit!

Valentines Day is quickly approaching and I'm excited! I can't wait to bake up some pink cupcakes and eat bags and bags of those yummy cinnamon hearts! Maybe I'll even hang some heart garland in the living room because my pink tree isn't enough! Ha

My daughter has fallen in love with piggies and we've been pinning away on Pinterest, lots and lots of piggies! I've also recently started to love Totems and although she's too little yet I may just have to start a collection for her.

intimidating but necessary

Ah, the often dreaded bra shopping. I have to admit since becoming a mom it's something I've let slide for way too long. After a recent visit from one of my best friends from High School I decided to do something about it. I just needed something that fit me for goodness sake! After two kids, well you get the picture!


Anyway, I took action yesterday and I was not prepared for what happened. I went to the mall timid and scared out of my mind to shop the bins of Victoria's Secret semi-annual sale. The bras were all separated by size, which if you frequent VS you'll know what I'm talking about, so it made it easy to grab different ones to try on. I grabbed a bunch and quietly sneaked back to the dressing room in hopes that no one would see me and ask the dreaded, "Would you like a fitting today?" or the even more terrifying, "I can take a peak when you have those on to see if they fit properly." Um, what?!

I made it in safely and quickly tried a few on. What in the world? These things don't fit at all!! Crap! I put my top back on and made my way back to the bins. This time grabbing anything that I didn't already try.

Back in the fitting rooms I found that they didn't fit either and I'd have to muster up the courage to get "fitted". Oh my god my worst nightmare!! I took a deep breath, opened the door and asked the sweet looking girl for HELP!!!

Guess what, it wasn't that bad! The fitting was not as awkward as my visions had foretold and she was able to help me find the right size! Woot! Although, she did ask to see them on me and I kindly turned her down. lol Who knew it was that easy?!

So I left the store with two new bras and a new confidence! Thank goodness! The moral of the story here is to let go of your fears and be bold in 2012. I know that for most of you bra shopping isn't such a big deal but it's been YEARS for me so I'm glad to have it over with!

Now I'm off to search for more since I now know what I'm doing...heck I may even buy something sexy!
