Movie Review

Tuesday, May 24, 2011

My mom came in town this Saturday to help me apartment shop (no luck yet).  Since we did that most of the day, after dinner we decided to take a load off our feet and go see the movie Water for Elephants.  I have to admit, knowing that one of the main actors was a star in a vampire movie series, I was a bit skeptical and on top of that, I thought it would be a cheesy romance story.  Well, I was wrong.  The romance was there, but the overall storyline was very interesting, entertaining, & intense.  Have you seen it?  What did you think?

Airing your dirty laundry?  Sure, why not, if it adds to the look of the room...
I think these images were taken to show off real estate, but isn't the photography/styling amazing?!
 I make my bed every morning (I do!), but sometimes an unmade bed adds to the character of the room.
This is how I'm going to start storing my swimsuits ;)

See My Look

Thursday, May 19, 2011

Here's a glance at what I wore earlier this week.  My style is cutesy casual and I'm not a big spender.  I also work in a very casual office, but I try to dress it up a bit.  These images are unedited and as you can see, they're taken with my iPhone!  Oh and look, I match Zooey Deschanel ;)

A Paper Doll Likeness

Wednesday, May 11, 2011

Cute idea spotted on Etsy from the shop Hollandsworth - personalized paper dolls.  You provide the family photo and the clothing selection and artist, Jordan Grace Owens, does the rest!

...and this darling tee can be found in the same shop!

Pretty Bar

Tuesday, May 10, 2011

This is a Danish brewery - as in a place where beer is consumed.  Think about some of the bars you've been to.  Do they look anything like this?  Not in Texas.  This looks more like a coffee bar to me.  But I like it.  Maybe this serene look will keep down the bar fights?

I Believe...
