Pattern Happy


Pattern Happy



As a longtime fan of leopard, I've learned that sometimes less is more. However, that doesn't mean your outfit has to be boring. I mixed this leopard print belt with a simple striped skater dress and I really like the result. I think the orange in the dress coordinates with the various brown shades of the belt. I paired it with simple brown wedges, a silver leaf necklace & these adorable but simple silver disc stud earrings. I think with an outfit already this busy, it's best to minimize the accessories.

Spring Green

Spring Green

There's just something about Spring that makes me want to wear green all the time.  Well, I guess, Spring is THE season for green to start making it's first appearance in the world for the year, so maybe I'm not too abnormal in my obsession.  I paired this darling eyelet tube dress with a sleeveless denim vest and some flat gladiator sandals.  I added the braided belt just above my waistline, where the tube section meets the skirt section.  Add a long necklace or two & you're done!  I think this outfit has sort of a hippie, festival type vibe to it, don't you think?

Tuesday's Tunes

I was having 'tune-block' trying to pick out a song for today and so I went to good ol' YouTube.

 

There she was, on the front page.  Pink.  While I'm not the hugest fan of Pink, I do really like more than a few of her songs.  The one I picked for today is called Get This Party Started.  I have always loved the video; it's just so fun and colorful.



Plus...there's a remix out there featuring Redman where they mix this song with Annie Lennox's "Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This) that is an absolute banger!  It's the perfect song to put on when you're working out or cleaning or just feel like bouncing around!  I've added a YouTube video of that one as well, just so you can hear it.  There's no video, just the song.  Warning:  there might be some naughty words in this one....I can't remember?


As always, I'm linked up with Tuesday's Tunes at Leslyn's Lovely Life!

Tuesday's Tunes

Remember last week when I couldn't remember what song I had in mind to play?  Well, thanks to Pandora being on shuffle, the exact song I wanted to play last week started playing and I had my "That's what it was!" moment.

This song came out my freshman year of college.  My sorority sisters used to change the words from "Ain't nobody dope as me, I dress so fresh, so clean. So fresh & so clean clean" to "Ain't nobody dope as we, we dress so pink, so green. So pink & so green green".  Shout out to all the ΔZ readers out there!

So by now you probably know what I'm going to play so here we go....



I'm linked up at Leslyn's Lovely Life today for Tuesday's Tunes! Join us & share your song of the day!

April Sponsor Giveaway Winner!

Honestly, life has been BEYOND crazy lately.  One of my longtime co-workers is leaving and I've been learning her job in addition to my job plus dealing with some co-workers who don't like change and helping the boy & the brother get through finals...let's just say I've been ridiculously overwhelmed here.  I've been neglecting my lovely little blog and you fantastic readers and I am seriously sorry about that.  I hope you understand that sometimes, life gets in the way whether you want it to or not, and you might not have time to get everything done that you wanted to do at a certain time.

Hopefully, things are calming down around here and I can get back to my pretty little bloggy love and get this show back on the road, the train back on the tracks...and whatever other metaphors work in this situation.  Ya'll get what I'm saying, right?  I know I need to make an announcement....for instance, I need to declare a winner for the April Sponsor Giveaway! 

So, with no more ado's whatsoever, the winner is.....



 

Congrats, Shea!  I also want to thank my fantastic April sponsors:  Heavens To Betsy, Sunny Soirees, Happy Kids, Inc., Betties N' Brimstone, Krystal's Kitsch, Mama & Co., How Sweet This Is & Nykki Talks Beauty!  Please take some time & get to know these amazing ladies!

Tuesday's Tunes!

Last night I was laying in bed and the PERFECT song for Tuesday's Tunes popped in my head.  I was so excited & I couldn't wait to share it with you today.  Well, I woke up this morning and I forgot what it was.  In fact, I'd completely forgotten about Tuesday's Tunes until I started playing music on my phone (it's too quiet here at the office today) and then realized what today was!

So, without further ado, here is the third song my phone decided to play this morning.  It's called "South Side" by Moby & Gwen Stefani.  When this song came out, I immediately loved it.  I think the video is fantastic as well.  I could be biased, though, because I pretty much think Gwen is the coolest lady ever & can do no wrong.


As always, I'm linked up at Tuesday's Tunes over at Leslyn's Lovely Life.  Come link up with us and share your tunes!

{Recipe} Mint & Lavender Water

I haven't posted one of my tasty water recipes in a while so I thought I'd share one with you on this lovely Monday morning!  These water recipes are low-to-no calories & taste great, plus they help curb the cravings for sweet drinks & sodas! 

Did you know that both lavender & mint are known to soothe and upset stomach?  It's true!  They also aid in detoxing your system...and freshen your breath!  Like many of my other recipes, you can keep reusing your ingredients until the flavor is gone.  I tend to re-fill my pitcher about halfway through because I drink this so much! 


I've included a printable recipe card below.  Just right-click & save to print it out at whatever size you like.
