Lazy Days

I have been pretty lazy lately.  Yesterday, didn't feel like blogging and went to bed.  Only to wake up at 4:00 am with sever back pain and couldnt sit still and fall back asleep till 6.  Forced myself up at 7:30, and the about 40 ft from work started hearing what sounded like a flat tire.  park. get out my car, only to discover a BIG ASS SCREW WITH WASHER ATTACHED ON on the front left tire, and walk to the other size to see a flat right tire. tiiight.

So needless to say, I didn't have the best morning, but I decided I'll throw some pictures at you to sum up what my weekend consisted of.

Saturday, there was a bit of Dev and his cute as buttons/pie play date girlfriend!


And there was some of this: 

And a little more of this:

And then Easter involved this:

And a little bit of "me time," where I did this:

I tried to tan a little.  And no, I wasn't successful.  But I did enjoy my time in the sun.  That's all for now.  Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!

Happy Earth Day!

Yes, we all know, EVERYDAY should be Earth Day!  So put a little reminder up on your mirror to help you remember to unplug your cell phone charger, night light, and whatever else.  Look up other little things you could do to help save the earth. 

But I do want to tell you about a couple freebies today.  Take a mug to Starbucks or Caribou Coffee to get a free coffee or tea!  Holllaaa

I hope you enjoy your weekend!

Times Two

I'm posting yesterday's outfit and today's outfits(s?).  It was 85 degrees today, so I wanted to wear a dress for sure.  But one little problem...I have gained some weight so all my dresses were too short!! So I threw on another skirt under today's dress.  You'll see:

First, here's yesterdays:

 Oh, and I apologize for looking like Casper the Friendly Ghost.

Do you see the weight gain?  On a more positive note, I would have never thought of putting this bright yellow with this orange-y color, but I love it!! These are also my favorite pair of summer heels.  They do end up hurting a little at the end of the day, but most of them do eventually anyway.


Went in this morning like this

And then AT work, I changed to this

And during lunch:

The dress has the turquoise in it, the pics kinda suck.  I do love these shoes too though.  They are super comfy!

Alright folks, I'm gonna get to listening to Adele's new album, which I'm very excited for.  God, I love that woman.

When I moved into this house last July,  the garden looked a bit different, and, well, not like a garden.  There was another tree out front, but it was half dead so we took it down. 

This spring, I saw some buds sprouting and thought they might be tulips, bought that it was too good to be true.  Plus, I didn't plant them or see them there the past summer so what the hell??!  Well, little did I know they are spring time flowers.  I swear flowers are amazing because I saw the tall sprouts (or whatever they're called?) and then all of a sudden, there were pink beautiful flowers all tall!  It's like they appeared over night.  First there were only pink, then there were what I thought was yellow, but had the red/pink in them- like the experiment I tried to do back in 4th grade, where I put the end of the carnation in food coloring...I guess I didn't expect cross breeding between all that dominant and recessive jaunt.

And then a few days later I notice something else sprouting in the front of the tulips.  I don't know what they are, but I think it's gorgeous!  And check out the purple tiny flowers hugging the ground.  I'm no expert, but those yellow flowers to the very right of the picture, they might get really big....(lolz)  No but for real, in the back of the pic where you see the bush, that's an azalea bush.  So all in all, I'm really excited for this garden!  But because I know nothing about flowers, I don't know how long they will last, and have a feeling it won't be as long as I'd like. 

Between the grass and the dirt of the garden, that green plant is sprouting above, and it separates the grass from the garden, which is cool.  Man, I wish I had the talent of the people before me!

Although, I don't get the randomness of the tulips "lining" the walk way.  I still love them, and gasped at the first ones greeting me as I turn to walk up my steps.  I honestly never knew that I would enjoy flowers as much as I have been!  I feel like they are my babies.  When it was storming this weekend, I was terrified they'd get over watered or something stupid like that.  But here I am, boring you to DEATH I'm sure about my hippie love for nature.

So, moral of the story. 

I really liked the pics I took.

I really like my garden. 

And I really think I want to take gardening more seriously... and do something I'll truly be proud of, and love to stare at more than this half beautiful-half-weed-hot-mess of a garden that I love so much.

I know it won't be easy.  But somehow, this little garden I have so far gives me some type of hope...goodnight!

Don't Forget!

Tomorrow I am holding my very first in-person Vintage Clothing sale at the Gaithersburg Indoor Flea Market, located at the Montgomery County Maryland fairgrounds, from 9 am - 1pm.

For those that don't already know, just cuz I say vintage, doesn't mean it's your grandmas clothes that you'll be looking at.  I generally find modern style vintage clothes that just have an overall better quality, better colors, and unique styles.  Often times, I am wearing something vintage, and I will always get asked where I got the item from.  So come check it out! I guarantee there will be something for everyone!  I will be also selling jewelry, other gently used clothes, accessories, and various other items, so I hope to see you there!

p.s. I'll have all sizes
p.p.s. PLEASE COME!!!

When I saw these pants on the rack, I knew I was in love.  The anticipation of pulling them out and looking them up and down to see if they were oddly shaped, too long, too wide was all swept away by perfection.  I got quite a few, "where did you get those?," and I replied that they were thrifted, and vintage.  Love!

I wore two belts:

abercrombie and fitch jean jacket- thrifted, ($5)
white tee- f21 ($8)
gray and blue striped cardi- thrifted ($10)
yellow pants- vintage, thrifted ($4)

Thus, today was one of those happy days where I am pleased with my overall look, which puts me in a good mood.  Actually, one of those days where I'm over-pleased.  

Tomorrow is Friday, I hoping I have a great productive day both at work and at home.  I gotta get my vintage clothes ready for the sale Saturday!!

Quarter Life Crisis

I decided yesterday I was doing this hair style, chopping my hair half off.  Shaving it.  Everyone told me no but I just had to do it for me because, well cuz I wanted to!  I especially liked the fact I could cover it up.  I guess I needed a change.


Woohoo!  Call me crazy, but that's how I roll son. So glad I did it :)

Update: Surprise!

I got a surprise for you all in a bit today, so check back soon!


  I shaved half my head.  I got some cleaning up to do, so I will post a better picture later, along with the details of when, why, how, etc. I do love it though!

What it is?

I accidentally never uploaded last Friday, or maybe Thursday(?)'s outfits.  So after I took pics of today's, I uploaded them and saw I never shared one of my proudest outfits.  It's nothing special, but I was just really pleased the way it all turned out- from me finding a skirt I was looking for, to my make-up, to the mixture of colors and accessories.  It's rare that I love how I have my accessories- I feel like I need more.  But anyway, here they are:

It's rare that I find accessories that I am head over heels for, but this belt is one of them.  I was so excited when I found it.

black cardi: old, old f21 ($?)
coral/red shirt: f21 ($14)
tiger skirt: thrifted, ($1.95, I was originally looking for leopard)
belt: thrifted/vintage ($3)
tights: cvs ?
steve madden shoes- ebay, ($36- not including shipping)
earrings: f21 ($3)
watch: asos, gifted ($40)


 I just wanted you to see the pattern, basically seagreen and yellow blocks of color.  If you click on it, you can probably zoom even more.
 purple cardi: f21 ($8)
orange silk blouse: vintage/thrifted, ($4)
gap jeans: thrifted, ($14)
report black booties: ross, ($19)

I just realized, I don't really note when things I'm wearing are vintage.  So from now on, I'm going to.  Especially because I will be selling vintage clothes, and I feel that people automatically think, 'I don't think I'll like vintage, I'm not that type of person,'  but people have no idea how cute cuts, nice patterns, and better quality is what vintage clothes offer.  And best of all, you will be able to pull it off and somehow modernize the outfit.  Trust me, I could find you something you'd like. 

p.s.  Wow, I look super blonde in these pics...for those who don't know, I loved dark hair (and with passion)...I slowly continued getting more and more blonde highlights, along with low-lights and medium brown under layer, and I am happy with it.

Get Mo' Dough

So, a great friend of Mine named Angela (who was featured in the outfit spicing post), sent me a great site to help save money.  A lot of coupon sites are really busy and kinda hard to follow, but I really loved this site and was so excited to share it.  I was soooooo thankful Angela thought of me and sent it along (what a great friend!).

The site is:


I had no idea how many stores have free samples to give away.  Right now, I think Target is giving away a 5 count sample of zyrtec, for all you allergy-suffering-folk.  I also learned Starbucks is giving away a free drink when you take in your refillable cup on Earth Day!  I highly recommend you check it out. 

In other news:
I will finally be selling my vintage clothes at the Gaithersburg Fairground Flea Market (indoors) in Maryland next Saturday, April 16th.  If you are local, please stop by!  I guarantee there's something for everyone, and it's not only vintage clothes! I may be able to get some pics posted this week of some of the clothes/accessories/shoes that will be for sale.

Happy Monday (?)

Hello dolls (jk, I hate that).  How was your weekend?  How was your Monday?  Mine was pretty busy.  I had a busy day at work and then was excited to try zumba for the first time.  However, when I got home, I had loads upon loads of laundry to do (our new washer finally arrived), followed by a massive grocery shopping trip, then putting away the groceries, feeding Dev, cleaning up, getting Dev to bed, and almost falling asleep myself.  I decided to come down and finally just post the two outfits I had been meaning to (god, I'm so dedicated), but I will update the details of where and how much tomorrow (most likely).

Rainy Day:
