LIPSTICK!

Helllllllo anyone out there??? I’m here… a little bloggity eager beaver! I might be eager but my lack of creativity is quiet evident in this outfit post… I’m in a rut ya’ll! Where’s the creativeness? I don’t even wanna try with my outfits lately… and that’s my problem… the “try” word! Right! Because us “creative” folk shouldn’t have to “try”… but dag-rabbit nothings coming easy!

Anyone else feel me?! Do I hear any other wardrobe ruts out there?!

Every time I go through these “creative ruts” I do rely on my scarves + lipsticks… something about a bold lipstick brights up your entire world… or my entire world. Anyways… on Saturday the hubby and I went to our favorite local restaurant 300 East and this is what I wore.

COLOR ME BAD… I MEAN RAD!

Hidden in our backyard… well, front yard you can find some colorful works of art… like this wall and many brick walls found in the artsy fartsy district of Southend… where our condo/ home is snugly nestled! This actually was a yellow graffiti wall less than a month ago, it’s fun to see the constant changes!

Here’s another way to wear your maxi to work… simple: add a blazer! I’ve worn this before belted too. I’m a big fan of maxi dresses… they are the perfect camouflage to cover bulge that still hasn’t worked it’s way off from the winter {work in progress}! 🙂

The pee-pee thing on my head 🙂 it’s fresh and clean! I washed my hair the day I wore this outfit and a lot of the time I’ll wear my hair up instead of down when it’s fresh outta the oven. May sound stoop but I feel like by teasing, pinning and adding a touch of spritz it gives it lots of vavoom for days to come! Try it!

WHEN IT RAINs IT POURS….

Apr 25 2011

Q: Why does that “saying” have to be so true… “when it rains it pours”? First of all let me start off this post in a positive light! Hi ya’ll… hope you had a wonderfully blessed Easter weekend! 🙂 We sure did! It was beyond peaceful spending it with some of our very best friends. It was simple! It was perfect! We came home last night being so thankful for the friends that we have which are truly like family to us! We also came home to a puddle/leak which escalated into a full fledge flood!

We painted this weekend. One simple little bathroom paint job. After 3 trips to the local Benjamin Moore store and 3 quarts of “tester” paint and half the bathroom ALREADY painted before we decided we hated the color and to start all over {insert: deep breath… longest sentence EVER} and then our toilet which clearly decided to begin it’s leaking process right after the paint job was over… and then the sink… oh the sink… for those that know our sink issues can tell you first hand that our sinks water presser is beyond miserable! To the point of which we have to wash or faces and brush our teeth in the kitchen… well that sink who used to sport one itty bitty drip is totally 100% dry. No water. No drip. So last night as we walk into our cozy little quarters talking about how blessed we are with the friends that we have… waaaabam! FLOOD in the bathroom. So here I am… sitting along, hopeless and toiletless, pinching my knees together… waiting for a plumber to fix the probs!

Oh a better note… I wore this over the long weekend. Cheers to the never ending costly condo!
