Spring Wreath

I have been needing to make a new wreath for my door. I still had one up from fall. I know that's pretty bad! So I got together with the sweetest friend a girl could ask for and we had pinterest night! We found all these cute ideas, went to Michael's to get the supplies, stop at Chick-fil-A for some dinner, and headed home! We had so much fun! I am waiting to hang my "O" till it drys but you get the picture! I'm going to let it hang in the middle with the burlap. Any just a fun tip, I used the back of a wooden paintbrush to make the dots. How easy is that?!

Fruit Smoothies and Lemon Water

I made a promise to myself that this year, I would make over my life, Mind, Body, and Soul! I needed to make huge changes in my life pertaining to my health. I had become so unhealthy that it made the rest of my life unpleasant. I hated trying on clothes or getting ready to go out. And if you know me, you know I LOVE getting dressed up! I felt so self conscious in every aspect of my life and it was miserable. How had I went from one extreme to the other in just a matter of time?

Well now 2 months into this, I am feeling great! I haven't seen that much progress in my weight per say but my energy and my body feel amazing! The 2 most helpful things have been, fruit smoothies and Lemon water. I swear by them now! I used to drink like 3 Cokes a day. I replaced all of that with LOTS of water and tons of fresh squeezed lemon juice in it! I want to add cucumbers too! Water alone has just made me feel so cleansed! Its amazing! I am and will always be a meat and potatoes kind of girl. I was raised that way and I can't change it. There are very few fruits and veggies that I even like. However I  have made myself start eating them! A good way to get in all these good nutrients is by making a smoothie! Either for breakfast or at lunch I have started making these fruit smoothies and they are so yummy!!

My favorite smoothie although I want to experiment and try more is:

1 cup of ice
1 small banana
1 cup of blueberries
1 cup of strawberries
A couple slices of an apple
Greek Yogurt
Almond Milk

This weekend's outfit

This weekend Brian and I did a lot of at home projects and spent most of Saturday at Target and Home Depot. Any time I go into Target I have to prepare myself or else I will spend every penny I have! I can't help it. Anywho, I got this super cute peplum top and I could not wait to wear it! We had a birthday dinner to go to on Saturday night, so of course I had to rock it! Target also has this shirt in all black, and White with black stripes! I am going back to get another one, I love it so much! I feel like peplum shirts and dresses are so figure flattering on women! These tops are perfect with skinny jeans and some flats! And you can take it from a daytime look to a night time look simply by adding heels! Adorbs!

Shirt: Target
Rockstar Skinny Jeans: Old Navy
Wedges: Steve Madden
Watch: Michael Kors

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
1 Corinthisans 13:4-7

This is one of my favorite bible verses. Not only was it read at my wedding but I have re-read it many times in my life. I want to CHOOSE to love my husband this way. I want to CHOOSE to honor him and TRUST his decisions for our family. Some days I just ask God, how? How did I get so lucky? I knew from a very young age that I was going to marry Brian. But at that young age I did not appreciate all of his wonderful qualities. He has the most kind soul that I have ever witnessed, though most people would never know because he is so shy. He has the most BEAUTIFUL smile, though he gets so embarrassed that most of the time he won't show it. He makes me his 1st priority. He always works so hard to make sure we have everything we need. I know that without a shadow of a doubt that he would do anything for me and vice versa. I would do anything to put that beautiful smile on his face. I want to spend the rest of my life showing him every day how much he means to me. Bunkey #2 you are my angel and I am one lucky lady! Thank you for everything you do.


Flash Back Friday

Do you ever wish you could go back in time? If it were up to me, I would go back to the 90's. My favorite TV shows, style icons, and music came out of the 90's. I know that I was not the only girl who wanted to dress just like Cher and Dionne from Clueless! In fact I think I want to bring that style back! I know its a little tacky but I LOVE it!

Can we just take a moment to flash black to Justin Timberlakes curly hair........sigh. And lets not forget how hot Britney Spears was. I mean this was her prime!

In my fantasy world I was going to grow up and share the same love that Cory and Topanga had one day. Little did I know that mine would be even better!

Did I do that?

Lips, Lashes, and Liner

My three favorite make-up necessities are Lip gloss, stick, balm etc. Eyeliner and Mascara! Even on a day that I don't really care about getting all dolled up, I still put these 3 things on. I have tried many different products and I wanted to share some of my favorites with you! Its kind of long...sorry :)

As far as mascara goes, I have literally tried more than I want to and I have finally found a couple that I really love! I naturally have really long eyelashes and I wanted something that would not only fan them out but help them look full.

Mary Kay's ultimate mascara is amazing! It gave my lashes so much volume! I really recommend that you find yourself a MK consultant and order this!

 Okay so you know when you want to get as deep in your lashes and as close to your eye lid as possible to get extra pop! Sephoras, "Lash Plumper" will help you with that! It really gives a dramatic look to your eyes.

This L'oreal False Fiber Lashes is AMAZING! Seriously it does everything! I am currently out or I would show you a picture of my lashes with this. But, I will do another post with them, as soon as I get some more! And its cheap!

This however is my lashes with the Mary Kay! Its so worth buying!



I have already told y'all how much I love this Sephora eyeliner but a couple of my other favorites included Lancome's, Le Crayon Khol and Loracs, Front of the Line Pro. Lorac's is more of a liquid eyeliner but the tip is perfect for application!
These lips are my go-to's! If I am just running out the door then I always put on my baby lips! It feels like satin and gives just a touch of color! The Lorac gloss is the PERFECT color of red and has just a touch of shimmer! This one is more for going out. I like the new crayon lip sticks. They are fun and great for on the go. My MAC plushglass is actually a lip plumper and gives them a tingling sensation! I love it! I put just a touch of this plumper over most lip sticks!

All about Braids

I know that some people think braids are a fading trend but I love them! Sometimes I wish that I would have not just cut all my hair off so that I could do cute ones with a long pony tail! Especially with summer coming up! What a good way to get your hair out of your face at the beach or a cute braid with a sundress and sandals for a night out! Ahh to die for! Here are some of my favorite ways to style your hair with a braid!


Sucker for Romance

Okay so I know that I'm corny, but gosh I love a good chic flick! Monday the hubs and I went to see Safe Haven and can I just say that I still haven't stopped thinking about it! I think it might be my favorite Nicholas Sparks movie! Even Brian agreed...shhhhh! And I think I have a major girl crush on Julianne Hough! Seriously she is so beautiful. The chemistry between her and Josh Duhamel is so hot! It didn't hurt either that in all the scenes from inside their houses, each of them have a Tar Heel magnet on their fridge! Represent!

A day Off

I have spent most of today trying to figure out this blog thing! It's so fun!

 I needed a little break and figured I should do something productive on such a beautiful day! So I got a pedi, and did a little shopping at Sephora! Btw, Sephoras own brand of eyeliner called, "Flash Liner in Deep Black" is amazing and so inexpensive! It might be my favorite eyeliner ever! And my toe nail polish is "Cajun Shrimp" by OPI.

And of course I had to spend some QT with Ms. Daisy (my puppy)!
