FOTD & OOTD: Mellow Yellow! 1/27/12

Hi My Loves!!!

It's rather cold today, so I thought I would wear my nice chunky sweater. It's got a very unique shape (I think it looks like a pumpkin with arms) but it's so warm and cozy!

To watch my outfit of the day: CLICK HERE!

My hair looks total poo in these pictures because I haven't had a chance to style it yet.... sometimes the hair gets a little abandoned with all the other things going on in my day :) As long as I can put my makeup on, get dressed and make these videos for you guys.. then thats ok if I have a bit of a poo hair day!
I always pick doing my makeup over my hair.... 

Plus.... I'm totally hating my hair color right now. I can't decide what to do with it but I just hate how gold it's getting, now that the lowlight and highlights are blending into one :( Any ideas???





OH HOW I LOVE THESE BOOTS!! They are seriously my best buy of life!! FOR SURE!



OOTD:

Yellow Top: Elle
Cream Criss Cross Long Sleeve: Ginger G from TJ Maxx
MEK Denim Jeans: Buckle
Black Chunky Sweater: Olivia Sky from TJ Maxx
FABULOUS Black Boots: JCPenneys
Earrings: Forever 21

HAIR: Best Pebbles look of life ;) LOL WHAT A WRECK!!!!







I wanted to match the yellow in my shirt, so I decided to do some nice bright yellow on my lids. I actually dont wear yellow on my eyes very often but it does compliment blue eyes quite well :) And it makes me feel sunny, even though its cold out.

FOTD & OOTD: Pink & Sporty! 1/26/12

Hi My Loves!!

So last night I decided seeing as there are only 5 days left of January, I would decorate my background for Valentine's Day :)

Valentine's Day is my most favorite holiday of life! The decorations are so cute, pink & girly... just my style ;) I used to love going to school and making the little valentines boxes or envelopes for the end of your desk. Then once the day finally arrived looking at all of your valentines cards and candy! Now I'm older and married I get to share it with the love of my life and my mini love of life too :) And of course Moomie :) 

To see my video of my outfit:

WOOHOOO!! LOVE IT!

FOTD & OOTD: Romantic Chic 1/24/12

Hi My Loves!!

OMG.... so I am soooo upset right now! While I was filming a video for you guys I must have dropped the lid of my foundation onto my lap (I can not remember doing this) and I got foundation all over my flowy cream top :( WHAT THE POO MAN!!!!

If anyone has a remedy to get this pooing old stain off of my top, please leave me a comment and let me know! I'm not the best with laundry disasters :(

On to a happier note...... I LOVE THIS OUTFIT! I feel very romantic, whimsical, and feminine with a sexy/ victorian edge. Thats how I describe it.......LOL

And.. whats even more bomb diggity dog, is that these boots that look like the devil to walk in our amazingly comfy. The heel is like 5 inches and a stiletto but for some reason it just curves onto your feet just right ;) WOOOHOOOOO!!!!!

Hope you like my outfit ;)
