Polyvore obsession

"If they can make penicillin out of mouldy bread, they can sure make something out of you."
Muhammad Alli

I am not tech savy..whatsoever and during my journeys of looking and drooling at other bloggers fabulous sites I've noticed a lot of them do "want" or "must have" lists with little collages of clothes they want, like, or just outfit ideas. Fabulous right?! For the longest time I was in the dark on how they were doing such things, I never even attempted anything of such awesomeness, then I discovered Polyvore.  My late nights are now spent making outfit collages and outfit ideas! I think I'm in Heaven (it seems as though I'm being a tad dramatic, but I can't help it, I am just super excited!)

My first layout. I think I was feeling navy with coral. :)

My second and my favorite layout! If I had the money I would totally buy and rock this outfit! Is it spring yet? Well, it should be. ;)

Do ya'll use Polyvore and if so what are some of the outfits you've created? I'd love to see them! :) Happy Hump Day!!

Angry cats & more snow

"You can't help that. We're all mad here." The Cheshire Cat from Alice and Wonderland

Sweater&Scarf: Modcloth Boots:Mardens

This weekend it snowed again. :( I am beyond mega bummed. Snowy weather always brings out my big comfy sweaters, and my angry cat sweater via Modcloth is my absolute favorite clothing item I own! If I'm having a blah day and not sure what to wear, I always turn to this. It is really big, but I added a belt and wore it over a burnt orange dress and bam! Instant cuteness. Here's to hoping that y'alls weekend is warmer than mine. :)

Breaking a sweat

"Sweat is your fat crying."

Today was a hard day. I have been going to Weight Watchers and working towards my NY's resolution of running a 5k since the first of the year. I've lost in total 13 pounds and I've gotten myself up to running around 2.25 miles on my treadmill. Every time I look in the mirror though I don't see any change, I actually feel as though I am bigger! I'm totally discouraged, I mean with all the exercising and eating right that I'm doing I feel as though I should be seeing some kind of change in my body. Any advice on how to get a better workout or any weight loss/get healthy tips would be greatly appreciated. :)

Wishing for Sunshine

"The rays of happiness, like those of light, are colorless when unbroken."
Henry W. Longfellow

I've been feeling out of sorts for the past week or so, not entirely sure why, but I will be blaming it on the lack of sunshine Maine has been getting. Today the wind was blustery and cold, with an overcast that makes for horrible lighting, so this is my sorry attempt of an outfit picture. :)

Outfit: Dress&Jacket:Target
Tights:Wallyworld Scarf:Modcloth

Wishing for sunshine this week and that ya'll will have a peachy weekend. (sorry it's the Georgia girl coming out hehe)

Candy hearts, chocolates, & all that mushy stuff

"All you need is love. But a little bit of chocolate now and then doesn't hurt."

Happy Valentines day dolls! For two years now I have been blessed with the greatest Valentine a girl could ask for. :)

Isn't she lovely? Goodness I love her! January-Grace's third birthday will be here before I know it and I am so unprepared. I don't want it to come, honestly, she's my baby and I wish she could stay like this forever. But I am excited to see what kind of person she'll grow up to be and all the adventures we have in store. :)
I hope all of you are having a magical Valentine's day!

A few of my favorite things, Tuesdays.

"Life is too short, smile while you still have teeth."

I've decided to make my posts on Tuesdays all about a few of my favorite things! This week is all about some amazing beauty products that you don't have to spend an arm and leg to get.

Favorite for your lips: Maybelline's new line of chap sticks Baby Lips. Patrick got me a stick for Christmas after my many subtle hints that I needed new chap stick. I loved it so much I had to get another! My third favorite is MAC lipstick from their Disney Villain's line. Sorry I can't give the name for the color I have, (I purchased it off eBay.)

My favorites: eyes, face, & nails.

  • I am in love with Rimmel London's Scandaleyes mascara! It gives my lashes the right amount of volume and length, and best of all, NO clumps!
  • I have this obsession with finding the perfect eyeliner. I have found that ones with a felt like tip work the best for me, (I've never been able to color inside the lines). I don't use a lot of E.L.F products only because I haven't had the best of luck with a lot of the products in the past, but I have to give it to them with their liquid eyeliner pen! It creates both a thin and dramatic line. For only a dollar I can't resist using it!
  • Whilst in Portland last month I had my first experience in a Sephora store. And...I was like a kid in a candy store there! It was amazing. I ended up buying their Mineral Baked eyeshadow pallet and Prisma Chrome eyeshadow. 
  • Yes to Carrots Nourishing creme. Oh how I love thee. Another amazing Christmas gift from Patrick. :)

New Shoes! I've been eyeing these wedges for over a year now and they finally got marked down to a price range that I could afford, $150 down to $19.99! What a steal! I can not wait to wear these, pictures coming soon.

Are there any new make up products that you've tried and loved? I'd love to know. :)
Kind regards,
