The Jury Is Still Out

I am not usually one to wear shirts that are loose & flowy because I am a smaller 
person & I feel like I get swallowed in it...
So I usually go for a more fitted look like this...
But I decided I need to get over it & give it a try...
Because I love these ruffles!
So I gave it a go & put it to a test by climbing a tree (that is high as I ever got... sad eh?)...
The jury is still out on the gray top, so I made sure to wear something
that I LOVE to balance out the outfit & my mood, so I decided on my new beanie!

Crazy Day

Starting new business = Crazy schedule! 
Trying to shift all of the plates I balance in life to fit another LARGE one (more like a platter than a plate!) into my life with starting Scuttle Nerdery. This week is the first official week of full-time, no back-up plan, we are really doing this work. The hubby & I are full force working, scheming, coding (him, not me :), calculating & selling this week with no other source of income to fall back on. Scary? Heck Ya! Exciting? Of Course!! 

So I have been a bit all over the place lately, hence why I haven't been the best at doing blog post lately, sorry! My life has been all about just getting by on the basics until I get my head wrapped around our knew schedule. My make-up regimen has been one of the first things that got kicked to the "basics only" box. So I have lived in Maybelline BB cream, BareMinerals concealer & Origins GinZing mascara (the best ever!)

Here is to starting new ventures & making life an even crazier ride!!

Current Obsession

Current Obsession!
I am in love with these, they have been sitting in my online shopping cart for weeks. I feel like they may just be the perfect shoe. Here is my argument: 

- Great height
- Two beautiful colors
 - Could be worn year round & 
- Would match practically everything.

 You could wear it to the office with a suit, take them out on date night with a cute dress or fancy up a pair of boyfriend jeans & a tee.  Next to my hubby & my pups, these may just be the next thing I love. Thank you Piperlime for these $59 of goodness.

Pocahontas Meets Black & White Booties

I feel like I need to give a photo by photo commentary because I was in such a goofy mood when I was taking these photos. For example, photo #3 is me giving my death stare (very scary huh?), photo #5 looks like I am doing my best Clueless expression & photo #7 is right after I said something really snarky & sarcastic. It was just one of those days ... :) So when in doubt just look at photo #2 because the booties speak for themselves! The are doing the "I am fabulous!" look.

Can I Have A Little Sparkle Please?

 This post should be called "Christmas Presents From the In-laws" because pretty much this whole outfit is from them (just didn't call it that because that isn't a very exciting title :). The earrings, dress & blazer where all gifts from them. If you know me, you know I love a good sparkle, so this dress is now on top of my favorites list!

In my life I unfortunately don't have heaps of dressy events that I go to, so I decided that I am not going to let that stop me from sparkling. So this little ensemble I wore on a Sunday (took the photos before popping in the marshmallow to head out for the day), nothing crazy special about the day but I am just choosing to bring my sparkle into every day life. You don't need a special event to sparkle. 

Jacket - H&M
Sunnies - DKNY
Dress - Free People

New Year's Beauty Bash

Yesterday I had the chance to end the year at a fun event with my beautiful friend Gina.
We were invited to attend the Beauty Escape New Year's Beauty Bash event at Atlantic Station.
There was free make overs, mini massages, an open bar provided by Skinny Girl, scrumptious cupcakes & fashion/beauty vendors to shop... what more could a girl need out of an event (maybe a guest appearance by Ryan Gosling to top it off). Here are some shots of the event:
Gina getting her shopping on!
Tasty drinks from Skinny Girl & a goodie bag from Google
Who doesn't love a good massage (especially when its free!)
One of the best vendors! SD Luxuri Cosmetics, a newly launched Atlanta based make-up line.
Owner & mother of two, Shanai has been in the industry for 10+ years and is excited to launch
her line that is gorgeous.
The colors are beautiful & the packaging would make giving these cosmetics one
of the best present ideas. The line is the perfect mix of bold colors & sophistication.
Trendy, cute & affordable, thats the kind of jewelry I love. This is an Atlanta
 based jewelry company where the owner is Monica (upper right photo) who creates
 or hand picks every item she sells. 
This is the pretty find I ended up taking home!
I love products that smell so good that you want to eat them. If you do too than
 Bella's Bath & Body products are just for you. This is a scrumptious line of organic
 bath & body products created by Autum who is a military wife & sells all of these in
 her online shop.
