Golden Hours (ModCloth dress review)

Spring is finally here in Louisiana!  This year has been a lot different than usual because we’ve actually had a real honest-to-God spring, with cool nights and low humidity and warm days.  Typically, we only get like a week of that and then we roll right into 90% humidity and temperatures in the 80s-90s.  NO THANK YOU.  I’m determined to enjoy this weather as much as possible.

A Tropical Winter (Trashy Diva Tropical Nights L’Amour)

Hey everyone! It’s been a rough few months. A lot of things have been happening in my personal life that has kept me from blogging (more on that in a future post). But I’m ready for 2019 to be the year I really focus on my creative endeavors, and blogging is going to be one of them! I’ve really been ignoring writing for a long time, and I really need to get back into it. It’s a great outlet, and I feel accomplished when something is completed.

So when Trashy Diva released their latest print, Tropical Nights, I […]

Family Portraits!

On my desk at work, I have a picture of me, Doug, and Gizmo.  It was taken long long ago – maybe 2011? – in front of Doug’s mom’s Christmas tree.  It’s one of my favorite pictures of us, but as the years have gone on, I’ve been wanting to get new pictures since we’ve changed. So a few weeks ago, I asked my coworkers Dylan and Danielle, owners of Three Twenty Studio, if they would come over and do family portraits of the three of us.  Doug wasn’t too keen on the idea (he doesn’t like having his picture taken), but I convinced him that it would be fun. And I was right.  It was fun.  😀  I wanted our pictures to be fairly casual – just us in what we would normally wear every day – although we did put a bandana on Gizmo because it just made […]

Stress Window Shopping: Vixen & La Femme En Noir

Last week was ROUGH, y’all.  I’m really trying my hardest not to buy any new clothes until after Labor Day, but it is HARD to not shop when I am stressed.  I did have to buy a pair of shorts – because my office does volunteer work once a month and I like to died this month wearing jeans – but it’s definitely not the same thing.  With all of the dress groups I follow on Facebook and Instagram, seeing so many gorgeous ladies wearing new styles, the temptation is REALLY REAL.  But I can window shop to my heart’s content, and I have so many pieces in my closet that I should wear instead!
