My SISSY is here!


My sister is here!

Her and her husband arrived here on Sunday from Scotland, just in time for the Oscars.

We have already done so much fun stuff and have way more planned for the week they are here, including a trip to the coast for a few days.

I'm having a blast and taking a TON of pictures!

I don't know how regular posting will be, I will have to play it by ear.

The time always fly by so fast I want to enjoy every minute.

I'll probably still post here and there, but for the most part I will taking full advantage of having my beautiful sister here!

(Two pics taken tonight- we had an anniversary party for them and my mom cooked a turkey!
My fur baby did not want to cooperate!)

Statement Necklaces

While I DO think there is something beautiful about a small delicate necklace hanging in the hollow of your collar bone, I have to admit there is something so cool about a huge, brightly colored statement necklace.

I recently added two beauties to my collection- in two of my favorite colors.

First up is this awesome neon yellow piece that looks really cool with even the simplest of tops.

And then I also got this amazing hot pink necklace that is interesting all the way around to the clasp.
Don't make me pick which one I like better.
That's just cruel.

Side note: Check out this awesome dress on my niece's Barbie. Isn't it cool?
My star obsession is no secret and check out the cool drop waist and tulle skirt.
Looking good, B, looking good. (We just need to work on your hair, girl.)

OOTD- Anthropologie Ruffled Skirt

Even though it is technically winter- it's been feeling more like fall or even sometimes summer around here.

I love it when a season is so perfectly represented in a single item of clothing and this skirt just screams FALL to me.

Plus I love yellow!

(And these boots!)

Animal print lining!

OOTD- Pleated Pink Midi Skirt

This skirt cost me a whopping $12 at H&M.

And it wasn't even on sale- that was the full price.

Love that store!
Is there anything better than huge platform polka dot mary janes?

Happy Monday!

Dressed to Impress: Jessica Chastain

She stole the show in The Help and has been turning heads on the red carpet ever since.

I love this girl- she always looks good!
(And she has the prettiest skin! I like a peaches and cream who can represent the pale
& not overly spray tanned.)

Short & Sweet
Who says redheads can't wear red?
Love this red carpet moment.
Such a good performance.

Great pops of color.
Turquoise statement earrings + purple gown = genius!
Black & White cocktail dress...
Interesting details...
My 2 favorite colors!
Is there any color she can't wear?
This lovely lady has now earned her a coveted position in my
people-to-watch-on-the-red-carpet file.

She has certainly made quite a splash in HWood and has got my attention!

So excited for the OSCARS!

Recent Acquisitions (Budget Friendly)

Some new purchases that are making me smile:

$5 for 3 pairs of cheap and cute dangly earrings from Target.
Good for someone who tends to lose or misplace things (me.)
Basic black flats get jazzed up with some cut outs and bling (from UO on clearance)

Skulls offset the sweet pastels on this scarf (from Kmart and super cheap)
A beautiful bow ring to sit on my finger and make me a living present.
The quality is really good for Target- the rhinestones look great up close and in person ($15)
LOVE my new arrow necklace! I have been wearing this everyday since I got it- OBSESSED!
(Buy here for $12. And another cute arrow necklace in gold.)
Look at this adorable bag my S-I-L made for me! (She is well aware of my love for owls.)
How awesome is this? I especially love the button cute!

And last but not least...
a yummy choc cupcake with peanut butter frosting.
Very low budget at $2.75.
I am an addict.
I'll admit it.
