Hot Pink Minnie Mouse Tutu

A few weeks ago I made a Hot Pink Minnie Mouse Tutu for my Etsy store customer and it came out so cute!  I used some sparkly tulle to really make the colors pop.  hehe

What do you think?

Gorgeous Outfits from Pinterest

I don’t know about ya’ll, but I shop the most in the spring/summer months because…well the clothes are cuter!  In the winter I LIVE in my northface jacket and Uggs.  I don’t get creative with accessories or hair and I just try to weather the cold inside with hot soups and movies in bed ❤

But when the weather gets warm, it’s like my inner self wakes up and is ready to try new trends, experiment on combinations, and well…be outside more!  Here are some outfits I’m loving right now.  (from where else but Pinterest!)

Weekend Recap and Photodump

Last weekend was really busy, but fun at the same time.  Markel and I did a lot of wedding prep and this time…it was FUN not stressful!  lol

Friday Night, our small group dropped off dinner to the college group and our church and then Markel and I went home to do some wedding stuff (DIY projects)

Saturday, we woke up really early.  I made us Breakfast Burritos, we picked up wine corks from our vendor, got delicious starbucks (I’m trying to get the gold card!!), and then spend the entire day with Markel’s family in Beaumont.

Markel’s maternal grandparents got married in upstate New York in 1948.  HOW GORGEOUS are these photos?  I’m obsessed with them!  They look so picturesque of the times.  LOVE IT.

image

It was Markel’s nephew’s Bday.  He turned 12!

imageimage

imageimage

 Mike played with his niece and this balloon all afternoon.  So adorable.  Love how simple things like a balloon can keep kids busy for the whole day! xo

image

The dollar store had St Patty‘s and Easter decorations up the wazOoo.  Can’t wait to have babies someday and actually need these things!

image

Markel and I have a storage unit in Beaumont and I keep trying to THROW BARRY THE BEAR away!!  But since Markel won it in Vegas, he is extra sneaky in getting it back into our stuff and keeping him hidden so I can’t toss him again.   LOL

Saturday Night, Markel and I trekked back home and did more DIY stuff.  Um…as much as I love the idea of DIY…my future advice to couples is NOT to do it.  It’s really time consuming and a Pain in the butt when you come home from work.  If it’s 1 or 2 things, awesome.  If it’s all your decorations, flowers, card stock, invites, WEDDING…uhh please pass.  I’m suffering.

Sunday, this was the second to last Sunday that I’d be helping out the nursery until after the wedding.  Not that it’s hard to do, but I have so many things on my plate, I want to make sure to give it my all~ So until May…I won’t get to play with these awesome kids =(

image

After Church, we went to Umami in downtown.  YUMMM.  I rarely eat here, but every time I do I’m in love!  The other pics are of other food dates I had with friends or at home with Markel ❤

New Adventure, New Apartment!

Markel and I got approved for a new apartment this week!  I’m SOOOO incredibly excited to move into a new place as newlyweds and decorate our new life together!  Markel and I registered at Bed Bath and Beyond together for lots of our apartment essentials~ and I’ve been looking around at Pinterest to see what sort of ideas for furniture/decor/ambiance I want to bring into the new place ❤

Here are some ideas I want!!  Our colors are going to be mainly Gray/Navy/White.  The gray/navy color will be the base~ like couch, rug, etc.  But I’d like it to be heavy on the white/Cream color to bring out some brightness and then add some pops of color throughout the house.

(secretly…if it were up to me, we’d be living in a white/pink/gold house ❤  hehehe)

Weekend Recap and Photodump

This past weekend was one busy one!  I had Monday off for President’s day weekend so I tried to make the most of all three days.  PLUS, I got to babysit one of the cutest Labs in the entire world.  Here’s my photodump of the weekend =)

Friday: goodbye party =(

Meet beautiful Cordouroy

image

Got to play with this sexy dog all weekend and it was soooo much fun!! I haven’t owned a dog since I was a kid…and now…I realllllly want one again. My apartment doesn’t allow pets so that’s a huge bummer. But someday, I cant wait to own a baby (pet) of my own to snuggle With. Cordouroy was the sweetest, friendliest dog everrrrrr. Hopefully mine will be as gentle, mellow and sweet ♡♡♡♡

Thank God it’s Friday! Today I wore my new fave necklace from bauble bar. Love fun statement accessories! Xo Happy President’s Day Weekend!

Fab Winter Coats

Although it’s 80 degrees in LA today, I still LOVE buying and looking at winter coats online.  Why?  I love the style, the gorgeous lines that some have and well…the idea of cold weather.  LOL  Growing up in Sacramento, coats were an absolute necessity!!  So perhaps that’s why I still love buying, searching for, and pinning winter coats.

Here are two gorgeous ones I found on Pinterest!

https://i2.wp.com/media-cache-ec5.pinterest.com/550x/c7/eb/2c/c7eb2cdde1960273f55978c03b841c09.jpghttps://i2.wp.com/media-cache-ec7.pinterest.com/550x/71/5d/12/715d12e0cf35c6092df91949ec7e1eac.jpg

These ladies even gave each coat AWESOME style.  Who says you have to be frumpy in the winter?

Gorjana Jewlery: Chevron Tribal Cuff

Got my Chevron Tribal Cuff in the Mail Yesterday!  LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!  I used to own the Cross Over Cuff as well, until I lost it on my birthday =(

Well, as you know, Gorjana and Kendra Scott are my two all time fave jewelry lines.  LOVE getting new pieces from there!

I’m super psyched to sport my new bracelet!!  Here are some pictures below:

THINK PINK: Happy Valentine’s Day!

Man, this year V-day really snuck up on me.  I’m usually prepared with plans but this year…nada.  Work has been REALLY crazy, my  the wedding planning…blah.  So every spare moment I get I usually try to sleep or watch a show that I have in my crazy DVR cue.

Anyway, Valentine’s Day (for me) is a day of all pink, girlie everything,  and all adorable things.  Here is a fun picture collage (photodump really) of things I found online =)  (mainly pinterest)
