Flowers and the Kimono





















“Oh don’t you dare look back, just keep your eyes on me. I said you’re holding back. She said ‘just shut up and dance with me’…”  A very interesting way to start out a post. I can’t help it though. These words are part of the lyrics from one of my favorite songs lately called “Shut Up and Dance With Me” by Walk the Moon. This particular song just happens to be stuck in my head as I type this.

{LifeStyle} May Favorites // 2015









Occassionally I do find a few things that really end up loving come month end. I try to share the most noteable things with ya’ll on a regular basis. Sometimes I do forget to though – for like over 6 months! Major fail on my part!

But, May was a birthday month and I did happen to find a few things I liked….

Glam Round Up #11














Happy Fri-Yay! Hope you’ve had a good week and are ready for the weekend! It’s been a week….I mean a week! Aren’t we all always happy when Friday rolls around, yes? I can’t complain though; I like being busy. Busy weeks aside, I always try and find time to do a little web surfing!

Embarking on “new adventures”, putting a new meaning to the word “contouring”, tropical wedding adventures, proving you can be uber chic and stylish no matter what your size and birthday shenanigans. This sums up what caught my eye on the web this week…..


1. Hallie’s new adventure and her “good bye” to NYC….

2. Jessica’s  “next chapter”…..

3. THIS……all I can say it Whoa!!!

4. A little blogging challenge, run my one of my best blogging buddies, Elembee, that I’ve decided to do!

5. I am one who has always dreamed on going on a fabulous dream tropical vacaction someday. So, naturally, I’ve been obsessed over flowing Kim’s wedding adventures in Maui!

6. LOVE Kristina’s new site redesign! I’ve been meaning to (and have been proscrastinating) on doing a major redesign for my site as well. Stay tuned….

7. To say Sarah is fantastic and I love her to pieces is a major understatement. Love her in this fabulous look book shoot she did recently for Eloquii! Rock on girl!

8. Also, I celebrated my 33rd birthday last week….a little peak into my shenanigans here!


This weekend I’m going to be attending my very first Drillers MLB game since moving to Tulsa in 2009. In case you were wondering, I’m huge baseball fan! Aside from that, I think it looks to be a low-key weekend. A little tiding up and cleaning around the apartment, a little Netlfix marathon or two and a little wine. Not too bad as far as weekend plans go I think.

What are your weekend plans?

{LifeStyle} 33 Years Young













So, this past Memorial Day weekend, May 26th to be exact, I celebrated my 33rd year on this earth. My past few birthdays I haven’t really celebrated all that much. This is strange for me, as I’m “one of those people” who loves celebrating birthdays and going all out. I’ve been through a lot in my life these past few years, but thankfully, this year I have a lot to be thankful for and I decided to celebrate!

Wednesday Wisdom: Just Keep Blooming

WW post


















This seriously should be my life mantra. Wise, wise words. If I’m being completely honest here, I’ve compared myself to others for as long as I can remember; it’s a personal flaw I’ve been “working on” most of my life. It’s hard sometimes to see the successes of others and not think to yourself – “If I had made different decisions, would I have the same successes…..what are they doing that I haven’t done…..why does it seem that my successes never seem to compare to theirs?”

Glam Round-Up #10
















It’s Friday…..yay! It’s been a busy work week, but a great week nonetheless. As I’m coming out of my “blogging hiatus”, I’ve been reevaluating everything about this blog. From what type of content I want to post, how often I want to post, re-branding or redesigning my site and much more. One thing I have decided for sure is that I really enjoy doing these Glam Round-Up posts (or Fabulous Fridays as I used to call them).

{Style} Orange You Glad…






















Well my dears – it’s been a while since I’ve shared a bit of my style sense.  So, I thought what better to come back and share than one of my favorite casual ensembles! If I could get away with wearing a peplum top, boyfriend jeans and birkenstocks every day, I’d be one happy girl. Casual Friday every day at work? Yes please!

The Strength of My Mother



My mother. One day, Mother’s Day, to honor her just doesn’t seem to be enough. What words can I type here that will be eloquent enough and fitting enough to honor her? I see my mother in everything – my strength to get through the toughest of times in life, every time I laugh, every time I look in the mirror and so many other times and things. She is my best friend.
