Pride Rock


I think that I have great hair.
I look around and not very many people have the kind of hair I have.
I have 4 styles that I can do with my hair:
1. Down
2. Pony tail for working out
3. Headband
4. Sock Bun
Most of these change depending on how long my hair is too. Like if I have a really shirt haircut I can't gather all my hair to make a sock bun let alone a pony tail.
Headbands are my usual go to hair style if I am having a bad hair day. 
Sometimes when I wear my hair with a headband I feel like I have a mane like a lion. 
Today, I am a lion like Simba, ROAR!

White Elephant


Every summer, doing my nails weekly has become a hassle (my white elephant); they become chipped faster than usual and I do not have time to fix them in a timely fashion. Now,I try to do them when they look disgusting! I am dying for a professional manicure and pedicure!
I have taken up running recently and I have the blisters to prove it. I am waiting for them to heal before I go and get my little piggies colored. I know I should NOT go and get my feet taken care of but when you are working at pool, in flip flops, all day, everyday, pretty little piggies are a requirement.

Easy, Breezy, Beautiful, Summer Girl


My poor camera was having a hard time focusing today.
I love this outfit!
I have worn this many times before taking pictures.
I love neon!
Can neon just stay around for the next couple of years? 
But once leg warmers come back into style and the neon it spreads to those, I'm done.

Double Print Fun


I'm having fun today with my double prints and necklace!
I have a love affair with these shorts that were meant to be mine when I found them on the sales rack a few years ago. I am on a mission to find a shirt in the color of the teal that's in the shorts.
Soon a teal top will be mine.

Fellow Blogger Inspiration: Lou What Wear


Today I am copying Danielle from Lou What Wear.
I love her preppy charm and classic style.
I was still at school, without TV when the Kentucky Derby was on the telly so I would get my hat updates from her blog. I spotted this outfit awhile back and waited until the weather was nice and hot to wear my shorts out and about.
Go over and check her classy blog out!

Shady Lady


I love my Ray Ban sunglasses.
I love all of them!
I just feel that sometimes they don't get the airtime they deserve. I have summer sunnies and winter shades but I'm sure by the end of the year they all get worn enough.
I'm also a shady lady because my camera takes better pictures when the subject (moi) is standing in the shade. I am not a photographer by any means, so I have learned through trial and error since starting my blog what lighting works best.
Here I am again sporting my black linen shorts from Old Navy! I have now sported every color of my linen shorts and they are so comfy! I threw together this look after work the other morning to go out with Eric. Once I got out and about I really started to love this look. This is one of my favorite tops because of all the colors and how it has a black background which, as everyone knows, black is a slimming color. 
I was a little apprehensive about wearing black during the summer. Summer time is meant for neons and yellows, happy colors; not black.
My point is to not be afraid to sport any color any time of the year.
Be bold. Be brave. Be fearless.




Look at that funny faced girl!
Oh, and the shoes are nice too.

Save vs. Splurge

Save: Old Navy / Splurge: J. Crew
Recently I have been having a hard time finding some really good Save vs Splurge comparisons. This is similar to each other but not a fantastic match like most of my past Save vs Splurge.

Sleeping In All Day, Staying Up All Night


Some joys of summer are being able to see my friends and hanging out. Some lows of summer is the 5:45 AM shift I get once or twice a week at work. Planning a sleep schedule really helps to not feel exhausted that early in the morning.
