  1. A little something about me that you don't know: I tend to not only wear my heart on my sleeve, but I talk about what's going on all the time! I'm very open about everything. I've been married and divorced (within 3 weeks), I have trichotillomania (google it), and I'm a new Christian. Life is crazy on my end!
  2. Why did you start blogging? I began blogging to have an online journal to vent in. To share my story. Each post is a narrative and directly reflects the moments that make up my life.
  3. What are you passionate about? Looooove! I'm all about love. I have an amazing boyfriend and he is the little spark that keeps me going!
  4. Sweet or salty? OOH sweet I suppose.
  5. Favorite read? Anything by Michael Connelly. His detective novels are the best. I recommend The Poet.
  6. Your favorite place in the world? Whidbey Island, Washington. It's right on the Puget Sound, is where I grew up scouring the beach for agates, and where I feel the most like myself.
  7. Who is your hero? My boyfriend, Daniel! He has overcome so much in his life. It's not a story for me to share, but he has true strength and honor. He also serves our country in the Air National Guard and is a true American.
  8. Your perfect outfit... A casual chambray top, printed shorts, and flat, strappy sandals! I also love a good pair of big earrings and a curly ponytail.
  9. Polka dots or stripes? Stripes!
  10. Your favorite inspirational quote. "Bloom where you are planted." I moved a lot as a kid and was always the "new" kid in school. This quote got me through it!

    Radiant Lip Color in Poppy

    On my whirlwind of a trip to NYC last week, I stashed my new Radiant lipstick ("Poppy"), in hopes that wearing it would limit how much I would need to dress up. Boy, was I right. This amazing red hue was just the pop I needed for my black dress and gold accessories. It lasted all day long and the best part? 
    A portion of the profit goes to fighting human trafficking. 

    Other fabulous products to try....

    This weekend was jam-packed with wedding planning and a mini trip to NYC. I won a shopping spree with TJ Maxx and a Vogue stylist and it was a ridiculously fun time. I cannot wait to share the photos with you guys! The majority of my carriage was filled with Vince sweaters, since I cannot afford them and absolutely love how comfy they are! 
    How was your weekend?!

    Look-a-likes :)

    Never have I found a more perfect dress for me. I absolutely love this dress (it's also cute not belted). A "swing" dress it's called...a dress to dance around in and have no worries about a thing....

    Oh, and the boots? A gift from dear friends at Matisse- if you need to know one thing about me, it's that I love a great pair of low riding motorcycle/cowboy boots. I wear them with everything and I wear them year round. If they ever go out of style, I'll be that gal - still wearing the boots with just about ever outfit I own. 

    do you have one item that you cannot live without? Something you wear year round?
