giveaway: fifty followers

I know early today I said I was taking a break from blogging, but forgive this one quick post. Last week I reached 50 followers (huge deal I know), and I wanted to celebrate with a giveaway. This is for all of you Target lovers! $25 to you from me. You have until the end of the month to enter and then the winner will be selected!

mustache monday

It's Monday again and I have an announcement to make! I'm taking a short break from blogging until this semester is over. Things have been getting crazy with work and school and I just need to get my priorities back in order. I hope I will be missed over the next three and a half weeks! I love blogging and could honestly spend days on it, but unfortunately that doesn't quite work out with reality. So for my last post for 24 days, I made you some mustaches. Cool right?
If you are a fan of my mustaches, then show me some love! I will still be replying to emails, comments, and what not, so feel free to contact me.

While I am temporarily gone, I am open to hosting guest blog posts. If you are wanting to do a guest post on my blog, then just give me a shout out!

When I come back, I am giving my blog a mega facelift and could not be more excited about it, so don't forget about me!

rip: google reader

It has been announced that Google Reader is retiring as of July 1st. Bummer I know. Now you should come follow me on {Bloglovin.} Bloggers are predicting that Bloglovin will be the popular route to go once Google Reader kicks the bucket, so come join the club!

Do you like what I did with my new app? I am loving it. It's such a fun way to add text to any image for just $1.99. There are hundreds of fonts, plenty of colors to choose from, and ways to share directly to facebook, instagram, twitter, and tumblr.

Check out these awesome examples of text added to photos.

You can also get the free option with less capabilities.

Today I am linking up with {Aloha Friday Blog Hop.}

throwback thursday: cheerleading

This week I took a walk down memory lane, back to my high school cheerleading days. That's right, this girl was a cheerleader. In fact, I was the cheerleader with the whitest legs. They glow. Nonetheless, I rocked that uniform.

Check out that booty!

Singing the national anthem with my two nieces!

That's my niece and I! Best friends since babies :)

Cheerleader prep :)

Bouquets and such at our senior night.

Thanks for stopping by this lovely Thursday!

did I ever tell you about the guest post I did?

I have been catching up on some blogging, and I totally realized I forgot to post about the guest post I did on Fashion, Love & Lauren. Lauren and I were roommates once upon a time and she asked me to do a guest post on her blog. She is the sweetest and has an awesome blog too! Check it out yo. Oh and congrats to her for getting her own domain! 

Until next time, check out this new box I got. It's filled with all sorts of magical tools to turn me into a babe. Today is day 3. That means, only 57 days left... I got this.

sunday best

I dragged my husband out into the cold to take some photos of me yesterday after church. This means we've got a new fashion post! Excuse the sloppy top bun, and my white legs. It has been a while since those babies have seen some sunlight.

white cardigan: Bohme Boutique
grey boots: Payless
white belt: mom's closet
pink earings: JCPenny

John and I live in a house in lovely Rexburg. Well actually we live in the basement of a house, and above us live a few single girls. The other day I was home alone, trying to take a nap before I started on some much needed homework, and I heard the strangest noises coming from upstairs. It was either creaky floors, or a squeaky bed. The noise was so consistent. Just repetitive squeaking. I know this is terrible of me to assume, but I most definitely thought that a little something was going on between a girl, a boy, and a very squeaky bed. Eventually the noises stopped, and I forgot all about it. A few days later I heard the same noises and got my suspicions again. The noises continued throughout the week, and finally, one day when it started up again, I went outside and started peeking through the windows. My findings were definitely NOT what I predicted. Just a girl, facing her TV, exercising; p90x to be exact. I felt relieved and embarrassed all in one.

The latest movie John and I watched together was Here Comes the Boom. If you're a Kevin James fan, you will definitely love this one. We got some good laughs through it, and it has some good messages as well. Redbox it yo!

my girl Kirsty

 One of the great things about attending a great university, is meeting great people with great talents. Kirsty is a photography student and is blossoming! I had the pleasure of being her model (for lack of a better term) and we had such a blast together. We met a semester ago in a photography class and I immediately wanted to be her friend because of her brilliant english accent. Fascinating I know. We soon clicked, and I hope we get to spend even more time together. Here are just a few of my favorites.

 polka dot peplum top: target, jean jacket: american eagle, heart necklace: roommate swap, jeans: american eagle, gold glitter flats: payless

I give all credit to Kirsty for making me look so dang hot! You should seriously check her out. Not in that way though, she's married.


As a young designer, I have a goal to make the world a prettier place (such a lost dream I know). I would like to think that chevron stripes, lace, glitter, and a bit of color are a great way to start.

I'm not necessarily a fashion blog, but I do think that a few posts here and there can be a lovely contribution to making the world a prettier place. These shoes are my newest glitter contribution! Now, I know this is forbidden, and I rarely-to-never do it, but I was desperate. These are a payless shoe find. Spring time is coming and I needed some cute new glam to glitz up my wardrobe. What do you think? Photo credit given to myself on these.

time flies

...when you're having fun! One week ago we celebrated our 6 month anniversary. Big whoop I know. Oh, and as in "celebrated" I really mean "pigged out on frozen custard." Stuff's delicious!

It has been 6 whole months of nonstop school, work, and complete and utter happiness.

time out

I am temporarily taking a time out from the blogging world due to my immense headache, runny nose, sore throat, and pile of homework. I will get back to your comments, emails, etc. as soon as I am feeling better! But until then, I am going to overdose on some cold medicine and sleep until noon.
