Do You Dare?

In the words of Christian Siriano, this look is fierce. {totally loved him and his creations on Project Runway}

The mixture of two bright colors that are almost on opposite sides of the color wheel surprisingly work perfectly together. Then add a pair of leopard heels and the outfit is taken to another level.


While this outfit is out of my norm, I seriously might give it try the next time an evening look is needed. One thing is necessary first though ... a nice tan. Pool time, please!

Would you try this daring look?

Sweet Summertime

Sunshine, warm weather, afternoon thunderstorms, pool time, pretty flowers, fruity drinks ... ahh, sweet summertime. I don't know about y'all but this season is one of my favorites.

Living in North Carolina, we have only two seasons: winter and summer. Somehow we skip over fall and spring ... those two really aren't necessary, are they? I guess it is a good thing that my two favorites are the ones that actually happen!

So far this summer, life has been busy but I remind myself daily to have some 'me' time. It is a necessity in order to not go crazy in this rollercoaster of life.

Recently I've taken in a Knights baseball game ...

And enjoyed some strawberry margaritas with friends...

Most of my time is consumed with working (a 36-week racing schedule provides quite the to-do list and keeps my calendar full) and knocking out my three summer courses. Thankfully, today I'm riding a productive train and chugging right along ... toot, toot!

High Five

1. Well, my slow start to blogging happened. I had great intentions of consistently posting but life caught up and took over. Guess that happens when you have a busy schedule, huh?

2. Life is officially crazy most days. With a little over one year left to receive a college degree, I decided to take three online classes to ease my load during the upcoming semesters. However, mix in two part-time jobs in the public relations world and most days there just isn't enough hours in the day. Even on those days, I'm beyond blessed.

3. Mother Nature clearly has been causing havoc for many across the US lately. It seems every week I hear about a tornado devastating another town. My thoughts and prayers are with all those affected. Let's not forget about these people a month from now when a better 'story' comes along.

4. I love hockey ... and that still might be an understatement. This past January my love for a sport I grew up watching was rekindled. So, with the Stanley Cup Finals underway, it is clear that I must multi-task when the games are being played. One day, I will attend a NHL Finals game. Go ahead and add it to my bucket list. {ps: I will blog about hockey on another day}

5. Magazines are a weakness of mine. Any magazines, really ... fashion, house decorating, sports, health, cooking. You name it and I probably have read it at some point. I don't care to admit how many subscriptions come to my house every month. However, I do need to find a few spare moments to read the ones I have piled up.
