Pick A Peach

What I’m Listening to: First by Cold War Kids

I had a very long post (by my standards) written out for this post, it used all kinds of illiteration and adjectives, just the thing to make my old writing 200 teacher very happy. But let’s be real, you don’t want to hear me wax nostalgic about a peach farm you’re never going to visit, so I did us both a favor and scrapped it. The gist of my day was: I went to a U-pick peach farm in rural Arkansas and it was such a beautiful day outside that afterwards I dragged everyone to this little historical site just to hang out and enjoy the day a little more. It was such a fun day, the kind that makes you understand why 2/3rds of all songs on the radio are just based off the concept of summer. (Though arguably I think they should definitely sing some more about peaches, because they were amazing.)

Peace,

What I’m Listening to: These Boots are Made for Walkin’ by Nancy Sinatra

Aaaand just like that it’s summer. Maybe not according to the stars or the calendar but if you ask me 78 degrees is at least 10 degrees over the spring standard. Anyway, it was the perfect temperature to go downtown (and wear this adorable new top from one of my favorite brands, Reformation). 

(Ps. Fun fact: The bowls and the beads were both imported from Greece)

5 Things Every Girl Needs For the Christmas Season

What I’m Listening to: Wait for Me by Kings of Leon

Less than a month ’til Christmas Day! With that in mind, you know there’s never a better time to make a list (and yes, maybe check it twice) to make sure you’re ready to have a terrific Christmas this year.

5. A Great Playlist

I don’t just mean Christmas music, (though that’s basically a given). I’m talking about the kind of music you love to get ready to, the kind of music you like to wrap presents and bake Christmas cookies to. A versatile, fun, up-beat playlist that always makes you feel pretty, chic, and maybe even a little bit dangerous.

4. A Killer Dress

Christmas is a time for parties, and whether you are the world’s biggest introvert or the social butterfly to end them all, you should have at least one dress that makes you look fantastic. Every girl has a few styles and colors that suit them best, but don’t be afraid to try something new.

3. A Checklist

I know, I know, nobody likes a checklist. But as one of the few who do, you know it’s my duty to let you know how simple they’ll make your life. (I definitely don’t have an endless supply of color-coded lists that span across multiple devices and notebooks.)

2. A Pretty Lipstick

It doesn’t have to break the bank, though if you are looking to splurge you know I’m going to suggest YSL’s Rouge Volupté Shine. Their colors are perfect for whatever you’re looking for, from darker shades to a super pale pink. For those looking for a less expensive alternative I think that L’Oreal Colour Riche lipsticks are smooth, color-rich options that won’t put a dent in your Christmas shopping budget.

1.  The Christmas Spirit

I bet you guys knew I was gonna get sentimental, but it’s true and you know it. After all, the most important element of Christmas, is Christmas. The excitement, the joy of Kroger selling Sweet Tart candy canes, and of course the sense of a new beginning that’s so integral to the Christian celebration of Christmas.

Peace (on Earth),

What I’m Listening to: Ghost by Ella Henderson

(Disclaimer: I know this post is late, I’m moving so it’s been cray over here.) 

After four days at mouse world my feet hate me, I think I have diabeetus, and I’m now secure in the knowledge that packing only crop tops and no sunscreen is a bad idea. Hey, I’m not the wayward wisteria for nothing.           

            

Peace out✌🏻️

Valentine’s Valentine

What I’m listening to: Momma Tried by Merle Haggard

Valentine’s Day is almost here and you know what that means. If you guessed the price of chocolate chips goes up 23 cents then you win a free box of chalky candy hearts. I personally want to know who is gifting their S.O. with chocolate chips. I can’t envision a scenario with that ending well. Even if you’re making them into cookies it’s still weird. Buy them something normal like those terrifying bears that sing 70’s songs while they “dance”, their dead eyes staring into your soul.
Anyways. I love all holidays, but I have a special place in my heart for Valentine’s Day.

Christmas 2014

What I’m Listening to: ‘Can You Love Me Again’ by John Newman

(Note: I know it’s 2015, but I’ve just now awoken from my sugar coma so hush.)
Another Christmas has come and gone, the gifts are strewn all over the house, there are probably chocolate coins in the carpet and the place smells suspiciously like Love’s Baby Soft. Hmmmm.

That aside, I figured I would share some photos of my Christmas. I’m not turning this into a haul post, because no one actually likes those. (To anyone angrily saying that they do right now, just remember, everyone knows you’re lying. (And you probably smell like Love’s Baby Soft.))

The first thing I want to show y’all is how I wrapped the presents this year. I used three different types of high gloss plaid wrapping paper, soft caramel colored satin bows and handmade brown paper tags. If you’re wondering how long it took me, let’s just say I may be a season further on Bewitched than I was before I started. Let’s also leave it at that.

Oh, right, I nearly forgot about the 11 feet of tree I coated in tinsel strand-by-strand. Pro tip: after 4 feet of covering a giant, dying plant in shiny Mylar threads, you will start to question your sanity. Ignore these thoughts, because if you even try to attempt this, it is far too late for you. Here’s the tree in all it’s glory:

Well, it’s been fun but I gotta go try to make some hot cocoa for my sugar hangover. “Hair of the dog” and all that.
Peace.
