The desire for all things lovely and wonderful.



Wow, what a gorgeous day to live in southern California! I woke up around 10 am and walked outside my front door and the sun was beating down so lovely. It's so nice! I am headed to the beach now with some friends. I am really excited. It definitely feels like summertime! A great opportunity to wear my new summer dress! There isn't anywhere else in the world I'd rather be! XOXO


I am so thankful that it is finally the weekend! I recently decided I wanted to dye my hair a dark ash brown. So I dyed it and kept it for several days and I still felt something was missing.. So then I cut my own bangs myself. I was so excited to change it up after having the same boring blonde my whole life. I guess I am lucky I can pull off both hues!
I apologize for the quick post, but, it's 1:26 A.M. and I gotta wake up early tomorrow morning! 
                             Here is a quick snapshot of what I wore today!
My new favorite white hot skinny jeans from Nordstrom BP, a vintage floral tube, also from Nordstrom BP, and Steve Madden sandals. Sorry for the poor image quality! Hope the detail shows up.  
Until next time, XOXO.



Lately I have been thinking a lot about tattoos. Since my 18th birthday last July, in fact. I have wanted one for as long as I can recall. However, I don't want to regret it in the future, so I want to pick my tattoo really wisely... It has to have some sort of 'spiritual' meaning to me. I've been thinking about the lovely lotus flower a lot. They are so beautiful. They symbolize the struggle through life at it's most simple form. The lotus flower starts out down in the bottom of a muddy pond and slowly grows up towards the surface moving toward the light. Once it comes up to the surface of the water the lotus blossoms into a beautiful flower. This is similar to the struggle through life. In order to achieve something great in life you must start from the bottom in many cases. I have had my heart set on this for months until several days ago when I saw one of Lindsay Lohan's tattoos on the internet. It's on her backside. It says LA BELLA VITA in a really pretty cursive font. It's Italian for 'a beautiful life.' I think it's very simple, yet very sophisticated. How could I ever get sick of that? I am trying to imagine myself in my 30's, 40's 50's and still loving either one of these tattoos. I am stuck in a huge dilema... I want to get my first tattoo for my next birthday in July, so I still have some time I suppose. Help! Any ideas?


Another lovely weekend...

Well Friday I worked a little in the daytime and then at night I went out with friends to see the Fast & Furious. It was pretty good, although I haven't seen any of the others! We went to the 11:00 pm showing since the rest were sold out. After, we felt like going really fast, like they do in the movie, but got paranoid when we saw blue and red flashing lights on the side of the road. So we went to Denny's afterward. It was pretty yummy. Nothing beats fabulous french toast at 2 am! Yesterday, I spent the day babysitting one of my nephews, Aiden. He is only a year and a half. We had fun playing at the park, watching Shrek, dancing to Britney Spears, and  playing with my two golden retrievers. Finally, today I've been tanning on my deck all afternoon, while catching up on homework... I love the California sunshine. I hope it stays like this all week.
