August sponsors

Hello friends! It’s that time of the month again; I am now taking sponsors for the smokin’ hot month of August. In addition to displaying your lovely button on my left sidebar, I am also going to start showcasing my sponsors in separate posts because you know, I love ya’ll. Email me for more info, any questions you might have & affordable rates. xo

Lord have mercy on my rough & rowdy ways

lace zipper-back top; forever 21
high-waisted vintage trousers; crimson & clover
belt; thrifted
owl necklace; crimson & clover
vintage pumps; crimson & clover

This outfit was so fun to wear! Clearly, I am obsessed with Crimson & Clover. I sort of didn’t even want to link you right there, because I want everything for myself. *evil laugh* No but srsly, give them love. They are awesome girls with even more awesome style. Do stop by and tell them I sent you!

Can you see the blue in my hair? I re-did it :)


These shoes are gorgeous & make me feel fancy.

Lets not forget my pal Orson who’s been making several cameo’s lately.

Have you tried on any fun styles lately?

Liz Says So; Josie Maran Lip Stain

As many of you know, yesterday I was on the hunt for the perfect lip stain. Thanks to all of your great suggestions, I ended up purchasing Josie Maran’s Magic Marker Lip & Cheek Stain. Rather than drone on about it, I prepared a little video review for ya’ll instead. Sorry my head is semi cut-off in some parts. This was my first time editing video in iMovie so cut me some slack!


  • It stays on all day. It withstands the test of lipstick on a drinking glass, eating & my favorite, kissing :)

  • It doesn’t dry out your lips! This is the issue I struggled with using Benefit’s Benetint. My lips currently feel fab.
  • The marker tip makes for ultra-easy application. I love.

  • Cost: $19 USD.

Please note; I goofed up when I assumed Josie Maran was a Victoria Secret model. She was in fact, a Maybelline model for many years. My bad.

Over the weekend while visiting a friends’ house, Jenn suggested we give Walter a bath {and a mohawk} in their kitchen sink. It was pretty hilarious. He looks like a drowned rat.

I don’t even think he looks like a dog here. But I still love him ♥

Love Shack: Where the magic happens

I know the title of the post is cheesy but just once, I wanted to feel like I was on the set of MTV’s Cribs & say that. ^_^
Last night we worked really hard on putting away the piles of clothes left over from the move and organizing the bedroom. Here’s a few snapshots of it so far. It’s *almost* complete. I just need to order the drapes for the windows, refinish the brown dresser & find a chic rug to place at the foot of the bed. Without further adieu, here are the visuals. What do you think?

Mister, refusing to get out of the shot. “Just take my pic babe.”

My side of the bed.

I’m in love with how much more closet space we have. I was even nice enough to let mister have a half. You’re welcome.

I realize I have lots of shoes. I swear I wear them all.

I’m quite pleased with the end result of our cleaning spree. The twinkle lights on the headboard I think are my favorite part. Next up, spare bedroom|office!
