    Stripes and Beehives

    ¬† Happy Saturday! You guys! Five days until Christmas!!! AH! Today we are going to a family Christmas party at my dad’s cousin’s house. I don’t know how many people will be there, but it’s always fun to gather with my dad’s side of the family; they’re a very food-centric family, so I know there will be a wealth of delicious foods to eat. Which is always a plus. This season I’ve sort of given up being healthy just for the holidays. Because it’s the holidays. This is how people end up five (or ten) pounds heavier by the end of the year, haha! So many cookies. I’ve been thinking…

    Cheshire Garden

    Today, my brain has gone blank. I feel that sort of cloud-induced grogginess that one feels when the weather is overcast, the house is very warm, there’s been a good amount of food, and everything is quiet. Asa and I just got back from a baby play place with one of my friends and her baby, and the activities has worn both of us out! That, and the fact that he got his very first fat lip this morning while standing up to the coffee table in order to get food. Only his foot slipped on a toy, and instead of a good mouthful of banana, he got a bite…

    Owl Always Love You

    Whenever my husband takes pictures with me, I inevitably get silly and forget how to pose. I think that even though I’ve been blogging for somewhere around four years now (well, fashion blogging; I blogged about other things long before that), I still feel awkward when people I know in real life know about it. Or talk to me about it. Or ask how many followers I have (no idea, honestly! I rarely look) or whether something I’m wearing is from a sponsor, or make a big deal out of a package I’ve gotten from someone because of blogging… It just feels odd. I think because my online presence —…

    It’s Beginning To Look a Lot Like…

    I’m feeling much better about today’s outfit! I wanted to wear something very Christmassy because we’re going to get our Christmas tree and Gingerbread ingredients today, but I don’t have a lot of green in my closet. At the last minute, I spotted this scarf I’ve just gotten from Oasap, and voila! The perfect finishing touch. And in a brilliant shot of inspiration, I decided to cut some live greenery and pin a few evergreen branches to my head for a nice wintery crown. It all went well until I picked up one that had a suspicious hanging little speck on it. Before I could pull it away from my…

    Rain, Rain, Go Away…

    ¬†Thrifted vintage dress and heels | Target tights | self-made flower crown | old umbrella | New Old Fashion Vintage scarf Well, today I am not that happy with anything. It’s dumping buckets of rain outside, which limits my photographing ability; I adore this dress but today I just couldn’t get it styled the way I want it, my hair is having one of those days (any attempt to do anything with it has been foiled) and is getting to the point where I need to decide whether to dye it red or back to my natural color and I just don’t know, and also I’m cold. So here’s the…
