Instagram Pics

I was among those patiently awaiting the instagram app for Android, so obviously once it came out I've been an Instagram fool lol. Some of my favorite pics...







Butterfinger Cake!

So among my blog I have honorable mentions from the kitchen. Cooking is something that I truly enjoy and I love coming up with new creations. I whipped this cake up for a friends birthday just from ingredients I thought would work good together. After eating some I have more ideas on how to tweak the recipe in the future to make it even better. I started with a devils food cake, punched holes in it with a straw. Next I poured caramel in the holes, then topped the cake with whipped cool whip and topped with crushed butterfinger pieces. The crowd loved it but I still felt like it was missing something. Maybe I'll make perfection the next time!




Love InPink!

I finally got my jewelry in and I'm so impressed with the quality. I now know where I will be getting my accessories from here on. Love the website love the pricing and love the selection!



Haute Cash time!

Now's the time to redeem Torrid Haute Cash if you got em. I placed my order yesterday and quite possibly went a little overboard lol. But its for a good cause. I scrapped most everything in my closet and decided to start over so a lot of things went to Goodwill a lot of things went to the garbage lol but new me wants a new look. I purchased two sweaters, two tops a jean, a pair of Bermudas and several jewelry items and with all my Haute cash I only had to spend $178 so I felt pretty pleased with myself. So why are there still things I want to buy lol.

Summer looking

So I got the most recent lane bryant ad and immediately had to order what I hope is my summer go-to. It looks fabulous in the catalog and I hope it looks decent on me because its just my speed and I have so many ideas on how to make the look my own. I love dresses and skirts in spring & summer because I'm just not a shorts person. I don't like my pasty white legs lol I don't mind that they're not skinny just don't like that I'm so pale. And I'm against tanning so my options are limited lol. Here's the outfit as it looks on the website...

Outfit of the Day!

Just because I said I would revisit the dress I purchase from Lane Bryant, I finally made time to play dress up!! I love digging in my closet and putting together outfits and playing with the camera. One of my  main issues is I wish I had more time to devote to my blogging because it's something I really love to do. So as a reminder here is the dress I purchased as it looked online:

It's still a little cool around here so I decided to forego a sleeveless look this day and I added in an open front short sleeve cardigan, which I love!! I like a little more coverage on my arms over tanks but don't always like a long sleeve or 3/4 sleeve so this works perfect for me!!

I threw in the red belt to tie it all together and several strands of red beads because well I like red! It was such a beautiful day out and a great day for a photo shoot lol

Not one of my favorite pics but my husband loved it and wanted me to add it :)



                                                  Relaxing in the swing, its hard to be me!!


I am my worst critic but I really loved this pic of me!


                                                          I was feeling all flirty and cute by this
                                                          point :) Not bad for a gal with no
                                                          makeup on!!


 This is just one of the many many ideas I have for this dress I have been playing with accessories and shrugs and cardigans in my mind all day lol. So happy that Spring is here, I intend to get out there and get more of these OOTD's posted very soon! Thanks for checking out my blog!!


Another event and Torrid head to toe :)

I had purchased this gingham top from Torrid in the fall and love, love, love it. So most recently when I purchased the Tripp skinny jeans from Torrid I just knew it would look perfect with this shirt and flats or heels...You have to forgive me here my husband is not the best at the photography but I think the shots turned out pretty good!

I wish I didnt hate the way my smiles always turn out cheesy in photos lol. I opt for a more serious face and everyone thinks I am mad lol, but oh well, again it has a lot to do with my photographer...Love ya honey!!



 And just because I got a new haircut I felt like I had to throw in a head shot lol. It's the first time in years I have tried bangs again but I'm growing out a shorter cut and I wanted some long layers and a long bang just to get rid of that straight flat hair crisis I was having lol.




Top and Pants c/o Torrid, shoes c/o Payless. Happy Shopping girls!!

Love Torrid



On this day we were going out to an early dinner with some friends real casual but I wanted to wear my new navy stripe open cardigan from Torrid. I paired it with a coral tshirt and white capris from Bebop. My favorite part of this outfit were the shoes. They are American Eagle, available at payless floral flats with a bow. I kept the accessories simple.





A closeup of the shoes cause  they are just too cute! And a steal at $14.99!!

It's Spring

So glad the spring weather has moved in. Some days its warm enough to pull off simple tops, other days you need a sweater but that is not a problem for me I prefer the cooler cardigan days myself. However here are some pics of me in this new little poncho I bought on a clearance rack. It will look great this summer over my swimsuit with shorts, or paired with a bright tank. I didnt get a real good full body pic of the outfit but I definitely loved my little clearance deal!!

InPink

So I finally made my purchases from InPink.com, this fabulous little jewelry company I just discovered online. Thanks to Jessica Kane's Birthday giveaway I won a $40 gift card from InPink. I didnt expect that amount to buy very much but surprisingly the jewelry is fun and cute, and best of all affordable!! I ended up selecting a multicolored fleur de lis stretch ring because I just love the fleur de lis. I also got a long bead necklace set in shades of green, the earrings included. Not bad for $40! I'm so excited to get my new baubles. I can't wait until it gets here. Until then here are a couple pics of what I picked out. Happy Easter to everyone!!


I can't wait to get some extra time so I can do more of my outfit of the day pics, and get them posted. This blogging thing is new to me but I do enjoy it and I find myself wishing I had more time to devote to it. But the weather is good, spring is well underway and I sincerely hope to devote myself to making my blog a better page!!

Jewels

Recently I won a $40 gift card to InPink.com, this amazing little jewelry company online. They have so much to choose from I have yet to pick out what I want lol. I have to sit down tonight and make myself do that!!

Shopping!

So I recently had some discounts to be used online. I perused the pages as long as I wanted to before finally deciding on a nice black dress, and some earrings, both from Lane Bryant. Now I'm just waiting on it to come in so I can try it out!! Until then, here's a look off the webpage...
