Be Fabulous Friday

Slowly I am learning to dress for the heat while still being comfortable. Aka, not sweating like a man! I love my new eyelashes from WINK lashes. If you have never had eyelash extentions, u should get them. They make life so much easier. I never have to put make up on anymore, I just wake up and have movie star lashes. I highly recommend it. are some of my outfit highlights from this week.

Sunny days call for a nice shady hat!

Found these beauties at DI! They are so comfortable. AND I came across this black and white dress at a thrift store and sewed it to fit. I was happy to find that my new shoes matched my favorite cardi perfectly

I found this beige bag and striped shirt in great condition at DI the same trip that I got the pink shoes.
The bag may or may not be a bowling ball bag?? Idk but I love it.

Love me some comfy, cute, tees and a good belt.
What do you wear during the summer months?

My 7 Questions #2

Linking up to other peoples blogs is so much fun. I need to get better at it so I can do it more! I'm still learning the ropes here but for now I'll enjoy what link ups I can. And you should too. Here we go my second link up to gentrilee's 7 questions...

Funny Photo- This is me and my dog Toulouse in our matching pajama set that YES I sewed myself because I am that person :)

1. What's your favorite style for home decor? (eclectic, modern, shabby chic, etc.)

I'm not sure if I have a favorite style but I love anything with songbirds or sheet music. I would love to mix patterns and prints but I'm personally not so great at it. I don't usually like bold colors except for maybe an accent or two. Obviously I like anything vintage or repurposed. My favorite way to decorate is to start with a piece/object that I love the color or design of and use it as my inspiration!

Just some of the decor from my living room that I made. You can see the post here!

My bedroom was inspired by the yellow coverlet from Dwell Studios at Target. The bed, shelves, window frame, corner shelf, all was made by my sweet hubby. And everything on the shelves is thrifted or handmade!
2. What is the best trip you have EVER been on?

Last September my husband and I went to Ireland for our 1 year anniversary. It was incredible!

3. If you could have an exotic pet, what would it be and why?
Idk I thought I wanted a hedge hog but then I held one and it was lame. Probably a sugar glider. Well, two sugar gliders because you have to keep them in pairs or they get lonely and kill themselves. Serious. but they are so soft and loving!

4. Do you snore? (you can be honest, we're all friends here.)

No I don't but I do sleep walk when I'm stressed. Sometimes I wake up in front of the fridge eating something. I guess I get the late night munchies when I'm stressed!

5. Your car breaks down on the side of the road, what do you do?

Call for help! If I'm faraway from home, call the police department and they will come help.

6. What's one item that has been on your wishlist lately?
I desperately need to find more button up shirts with collars. particularly chambray shirts and some peter pan collars.

I also have a random WANT board on pinterest you can check out if you want.

7. It's almost Summer (or winter if you live in the Southern Hemisphere), what are you looking forward to most?

Getting some more pool time in and enjoying sunny St. George. I also love any fairs, carnivals, art shows etc that so often come with summer:)

I hope you learned some new stuff about me and you should totally link up too!

Takin a Dip

After living in St George for two months I finally got to relax out by the pool. We have an indoor pool in my community but the outdoor is under construction until who knows when. So gentrilee, her roommate an I enjoyed the pool at her complex. It was the perfect day for it! Hot enough that the water wasn't too cold but not so hot we couldn't enjoy the sun. I also got in some good pool exercises ;)

Diet Coke, fresh polish and bare toes,and my favorite (and only) hat. Sunbathing essentials

Doesn't this water look perfect? It was SO refreshing.

This is my "I'm not a great swimmer so I'm tired from keeping myself above the surface" face

I'm hoping to get in some more sun/pool time more frequently. How are you relaxing on your downtime this summer?
