Regular $45- now marked down to $25!

M'kay, so a couple days ago sweet bloggers Chelsey and Erica passed on their Stylish Blogger Awards to moi. The rules for the award were that I have to write 7 rando facts about myself. That's easy for me, since most facts about myself are of the random variety. Here goes:


1. I have freckles. Loads. You can't tell from pictures, because I'm usually wearing make-up, but I'm pretty much covered (at least on my arms and face in summertime.) I used to hate them, but have grown to love and embrace them. Might as well, they aren't going anywhere, right?

2. I'm terrified of bats. Even the little bitty ones that are probably harmless. They give me the heebie jeebies big time.

3. ...on that note, I'm also terrified of opposums. Gross creatures, those opposums. I almost accidentally ran over one the other night and the thought of having to clean dead opposum off of my tires just about did me in.

4. ...but I love goats. My life goal (as far as animals go) is to purchase and raise a miniature goat. S says we can't have one in our subdivision when we get married, (stupid city ordinances and what have you ),  but I'm trying to convince my parents to let it live at their house in the country. The jury is still out on whether they will say yes.

5. If I could spend a day with anyone, it wouldn't be Oprah or the President. It wouldn't be Mark Zuckerberg or the Queen Elizabeth. Nope, it would be Rachel Zoe. It is what it is. I think I might just move in to her closet if she'd let me.

Rachel- Because I know you're reading this during your loads of free time- I will quit my job and come work for you. You can pay me in clothing/accessories. Please and thank you.

6. I'm considering eyelash extensions. Thoughts??





I wore some false ones today to work to try out the longer lash look and really like it.

7. On my desk at work: My Dexter bobblehead, bedazzled leopard print stapler, martini glass paperclip holder, an origami flower from my co-worker's little boy, and a jar of Nutella. All things that make my workday just that much better.

Because I think you are all pretty darn stylish, I'm passing this award on to all of you...may you live long and stylishly.

Be blessed, lovelies-

    i have tons of freckles too. that's what happens when you're ginger. i used to HATE them when i was little, but now i barely notice them. and they only really pop up when the sun is out.

    oh and i HATE possums too. so gross. i cringe just thinking about them.

  3. love random facts! i think your eyes are gorg, but i would say go for the eyelash extensions! one of my bff's has them and i covet them every single time i see her and especially when i see how great they look in pics, too! (they look completely natural in that whole "i-hate-you-because-you-have-such-long-eyelashes" sort of way)
    btw, she got them right before her wedding... ;)

  5. Fun random facts! I had no idea about the goat! Love it! :) and um.. I totally want eyelash extensions too! I wore fake ones on New Years Eve and LOVED them. My friend had em done for her wedding and oh how gorgeous they were! :) Those shoes on sale for 25 dollars are AMAZING! If I didnt have that whole "grounded from spending" thing I blogged about today, I'd totally get them. Arg. Stupid saving money. Blah. haha..

  7. Your hair looks fabulous in those pictures! My mom, like you, is terrified of bats. She once refused to go inside the nocturnal exhibit at the zoo when I was very young and I spent the remainder of my childhood torturing her with plastic ones!

  14. I love that coat! And girl, I have TONS of freckles. I'm a redhead and they're everywhere. Not so much on my face because I wear make up but in the summer, they just pop out!

  15. Gorgeous long lashes! I had my eyelashes done for my wedding, and I must admit it is quite addicting... I miss batting those luscious lashes!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I too have a lot of freckles, but mostly on my face. I love them most in the summer. I think they make a girl unique.
    Rachel Zoe is the bomb.com. I'm not surprised that you love her.
    AND totally go for the falsies! Long eyelashes are to die for.

  17. Eyelash extensions?! That's so AWESOME! I have short stubby little blonde eyelashes sans mascara, so hearing about this made my day!!!

    How do they work? How long do they stay in? FUN!

  20. I also share your love for long eyelashes, but god blessed me with short little guys. I hate to report that I tried eyelash extensions in college and it was a failure. I finally took a big leap and tried Latisse and couldn't be happier!

  21. Love random things! I echo the bat dislike...one actually started flying around my parents TV room last night...we think it might have been hiding in the Christmas tree for a day or two. Yikes!

  22. Great random facts. Okay, so Maude Boutique is amazing. Since I am not local I must check out them out online. Have a great weekend.

  23. Definitely go for the lash extensions! Forewarning... you WILL be addicted though! :) I just got mine done for the first time last month, and o. m. g. You'll never go back! It's so much easier to not have to do your eye makeup every morning (unless you want to add a little "extra," but you definitely don't need to). It can be expensive, but look around for someone that's running a promotion and it's not too bad. Be careful with the brands though... the cheaper you go, the higher risk you run of them using lower quality materials and a greater risk for not-so-fabulous eye infections. Novalash is a great brand, which is what I got. If you go to their site, you can find salons near you that do it. Hope that helps! :)
