Festival Fashion 3

Coachella is on the last week so I thought I would get one more festival inspired outfit. 
One of these years I'd love to go there. Even for just one night. I'm hearing about a lot of awesome performances. I would die if I was there when Ariana Grande brought out Nsync! Man I miss them and they need a reunion tour. I think all of us Nsync fans deserve that. 
I hope this week is treating you kindly.

Fashion Friday {Festival Fashion 2}

Hello! I'm back again with another Coachella inspired outfit. I'm happy to report that leopard is back in again for spring/summer 2019. Which I'm so excited about because I love leopard and animal print.
So it's a win-win for me. What's been your favorite trend for the season if you have any? 

I've been slaving away at my to-do list. I came to the conclusion that I don't know how people do it. When they have their hand in all these things. People like J.Lo for instance. How does she do it ? I'm brainstorming a lot of ideas and managing being a mom, and wife. I'll let you know when I got a handle on it. Not sure if I like being super busy yet. I will let you know on that too. I have been having a hard time focusing. I blame my impatience. I want everything done at once so I try to do it all at the same time. Maybe I should blame it on society telling me I can have it all. That I can handle it all. That's too much deep thinking for a beginning of a weekend. 

I thought we would have a little fun this friday. 
We are coming to the end of our fall tv lineup and I might be just now catching up on some shows but I wanted to share what I'm liking right now and what I'm ok with them cancelling. 

1: The Fix
A 10 episode mini series on Fox that Marcia Clark co-wrote (OJ Simpson Trial) 
While it's slightly intriguing it has a lot of OJ Simpson vibes and some not so good actors. If this was a regular show and not a mini series I would see it getting cancelled. But I will finish it through to see who killed who. 

2: Proven Innocent:
About a woman who was wrongly convicted for killing her best friend (supposedly). Now out of prison after 10 years she is now a lawyer on her crusade to help those falsely imprisoned. While she goes up against the same DA who put her away as well as still trying to solve her friends murder. There's a lot of familiar faces so it's worth checking out for now.

3: 9-1-1 
It's already on season 2 but the first season definitely gives you a lot of Final Destination vibes. A lot of crazy near death situations. You definitely fall for the characters as well. Definitely a good one. 

4: A million little things
I wasn't sure about this one but there were some familiar actors in it and I just binged the first season. It definitely gives you the feels. It's ABC's version of This is us. We shall see how long it lasts. It's definitely a complicated emotional show. 

5: The passage
At first I thought it was a new zombie show with ZACK MORRIS a.k.a Mark Paul Gosselaar which I was excited about. It turned out to not be zombies but vampires. It has a familiar vibe but I can't put my finger on it right now. He's great in the show just don't know if I want to do another vampire or zombie show to be honest. 

6: Manifest
A lot of familiar faces again and I just like to see them working. You like them in a previous show and it gets cancelled or ends and you root for them. They pop up again and it just brings me joy to see them still working and hustling! Intriguing plot about a plane that goes missing for 5 years but to the passengers its only been a day. Each new episode is a new mystery that feeds into the bigger mystery of how can a plane full of people just disappear. It's got Fringe and some X-file vibes. Worth it but not sure how long they can keep it going. 

7: Good Girls
Interesting concept but not original. Three normal ladies stumble into a life of crime and now every episode is how they get themselves out of it while keeping it a secret from their families. It's on season 2 now so we'll see how it goes. 

I'm sure you are wondering how I am watching all these shows.
First I am a Tv Junkie that will never change about me. 
Second It's on my list of things to do :)

Happy Friday!

Fashion Friday {Festival Fashion}

 It's that time of year again. It's like that saying always a bridesmaid never a bride. That's kind of how I feel about Coachella! I love the fashion, the music but I never get to go. So I dress up from as if I am going and enjoy it from afar. Which I'm sure most of you guys are too! I'm not the only one right?
Maybe one day I will go. Hey maybe one day I will be performing there.  You never know.
In the mean time I might feel the urge for some festival fashion-esque outfits to post throughout the month. Happy Friday!
I'm going on a date now.

Fashion Friday

As promised I was going to be writing more and blogging more. I got a lot of things in the works that I'm excited to share with you! A lot of DIY Projects, a home tour, travel and of course more fashion. It feels good to get my motivation back. I just got to get those creative juices flowing again. I thought that I got my amazing multi-tasking brain back after Caleb. He's four years old now and It's not quite there yet. 
What type of things do you want me to blog about? It's been over a year since I did a DIY post I believe. Even longer since I did a home tour. That's what is great about being a military spouse. Every new house we move into is a new clean slate for me to work on. As the years go by though I've become more indecisive. I might blame that on pinterest. There are way more options for inspiration now that it's overwhelming. 
Now I am focusing on the inexpensive things which is more achievable to me now. I'm sure it would be to you as well. I hope you continue to check back in with me on all that.
til then...

Happy Friday!

Fashion Friday {High Hopes}

As promised I am back with something to talk about. This blog started out as an outlet for my fashion creativity, DIY, home decor. Basically all about my life. It's a place where no rules apply. I can write about whatever I want and it's out there for the world to see. I've gone from simple fashion posts, travel posts, my musical journey. I've even written posts about being a cancer survivor, grief, infant loss etc. I'm all over the place but that's the case with any real friendship right? You take the heavy with the light. You have fun but then you are there to hold your friends hand. 
I bet you are guessing what kind of post you are going to get today?
This is a get to know me post actually. Just a simple post about life and dreams. I hope you can bear with me.
Have you always known what you wanted to do with your life? Did you find your passions at a young age? Did you stumble upon them as you went through life? 
I have had many passions and dreams. 
I was told that I once wanted to be a violinist. I'm not sure I remember that one very well. 
I feel like from birth though music was coursing through my veins. I was deeply affected by music. I even remember writing my first songs in Kindergarten. Cheesy little love songs because I was a boy crazy little girl. I will admit that! I even remember in elementary school going to the backyard and sitting in the sun with my little artistic hat on that I got from my great-grandma. I would write notebooks full of songs, poems, and stories. Deep down I always knew what I was destined to be. I feel like maybe I lacked the over the top encouragement that I desperately needed. But all in God's timing right? 
Then came fashion. I would sit with my colored pencils and design outfits. I played with the idea of going to design school. Honestly, I can't draw at all! Another thing I have no problem admitting. 
I was even called the fashion police by my parents. That eventually evolved into what you see today and I was able to make all my fashion dreams come true by being a fashion blogger. 

The moral of the story here is don't give up on your dreams and your passions. There will always be an outlet in some form for you to use them or fulfill them. We are living in an interesting and exciting time. You should always do something you are passionate about whether its a career or a hobby. 
I hope you find this inspiring! 
Happy Friday

Fashion Friday {Stray}

I realize that I've barely been blogging much lately. Sometimes I get in these ruts of not knowing what to say or what to post. Then it becomes stressful and there's all this pressure. Life has definitely changed a lot since I started this blog. I was inspired and feeling creative and had way more time on my hands. Then the second kid comes along and I'm struggling to just get my house decorated and it's been almost 3 years. I feel like the days are getting shorter. There's more responsibility in life and it feels like everything needs to get done immediately.

I'm on the verge of remedying this. Getting organized again, gathering all my thoughts and ideas. Start again with a clean slate. 
They say that women can have it all? Here's hoping for it!
Happy Friday !
