Fashion Nugget: Lighting Issues

Hello Again!

I have had this floral Forever 21 + dress for a few months now, but just recently got around to photographing it. I love the warm, fall colors and empire waist. The day I shot this, it was warm enough to get away with a light jacket. I am sure the colder days are just around the corner! I will still be sporting my dresses, just with many, many layers.
Dress & Leggings: Forever 21+
Boots: TJMaxx
Necklace: Pamela Love
I had lighting issues with these photos, hence the two separate locations (first set back yard, second set front door). How many of y'all have lighting issues in the Fall/Winter months? I might need to wait until the "golden hour" snap photos, or change locations. I am also still learning the tricks of my new camera.

The online sales for both of our businesses has exploded over the holiday season. While we am very, very grateful for the sales, the stress level is an an all time high. I saw this on Susannah Bean's blog, and I remind myself of it daily.


Thanks for stopping by, have a good one!

The party was a Pure Romance party. I'll spare you the details :)

I should have rated this post adults only.

Have a good one!

Farmers' Market Fun

Hello Again!

Aron and I headed down to the local farmers' market last weekend to purchase some local yummies. I was feeling a boho vibe that day, so I broke out my Torrid chrochet shrug. Wheeee!

Crochet Tank & Skirt: Torrid
Top: Old Navy
Shoes: Ross (old)
Necklace: Pamela Love

The sky looked ominous, but we managed to get some goodies!
Some rad local honey
 Yummy tomatoes
 Bacon! The seller told us there was no meat in these. I think he was messing with us.
After the farmers market, Aron headed to The Great Escape to dig through comics. I headed over to Walmart for a snack, and spotted this yumminess. I didn't buy one, but I was tempted.
 I spotted this at The Great Escape. It hurt my heart a bit to realize I was 19 when this movie came out. The soundtrack is epic.

Have you entered our Forever 21 Gift Card Giveaway?

Have a good one :)

Christmas Loot

Hello Again!

I know that I promised a Christmas gift post yesterday, but life got in the way, sigh....Here are a few of my Christmas goodies!

Jessica Simpson Collection purses from my Mom. I had to Instagram this one. Do you follow me on Instagram? If not, check me out at "lolarocksme".
Pamela Love Bird Claw Necklace from my husband. I've wanted this one for a looonnngg time.
Assorted Hello Kitty goodness. Yes, I received even more HK loot than this :)
Scarves and Mittens from my sweet in laws. I love how these fingerless gloves are convertible into mittens. 
Some gifts from my besties Shawna and Misti. I also had some gifts from my other besite Leah, but I think I accidentally left them at my Moms. :(
Awesome apron Tracy made for me that I discussed in my last post.
Adele CD from my hubby.
A gift to the house-a new light fixture!
Here are a couple of things I snagged while in Florida
A fab pair of motorcycle-esque boots
My Mom passed down to me this tapestry purse that was my Grandmother's. Isn't it amazing?

Ok, Christmas isn't just about receiving, so here are a couple of presents I gave to Aron.
Molly Crabapple piece I picked up from the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund's eBay auction

Crazy Kitty Cat Bank I bought for husband from Think Geek.

So, did y'all make out with some cool Christmas loot?

Christmas Cheer

Hello Lovelies!

I hope you all had a great Christmas! Our Christmas was wonderful this year; relaxing, festive, and fun. There was good times and cocktails with friends, sweet times with the hubby, and (of course) a bounty of yummy food.

Christmas Eve was spent cooking and watching our favorite Christmas movies: Love Actually and the 80s classic, Better Off Dead. So maybe Better Off Dead isn't exactly a Christmas movie, but a portion of it takes places during the holidays, so that's good enough for us :)

We decided to go for a walk to work up an appetite for Christmas Eve noms. I am wearing my old Old Navy coat, Old Navy hat, and Forever 21 gloves.

I made some Jalapeno Cornbread on Christmas Eve as well. My friend Leah shared this family recipe with me years ago, and it has been a favorite ever since. But it is a secret recipe, so no sharing......but...
....I think I can share this recipe for tortellini salad, a recipe that Aron's Mom shared with me. I will be doing a recipe tutorial for this dish this week :)

Aron watching Better Off Dead

Christmas Day was filled with presents, food, and good times with our friends Ben and Tracy.
I wore my Pure Energy dress, Mossimo cardigan, and Forever 21 plus leggings. Please excuse the kitty dishes in the background. I wanted to be cute yet comfortable, and I have been obsessed with floral dresses for a while now-maybe forever :)
Aron gave me the Pamela Love bird claw necklace I've be dreaming of :)

Ben and Tracy came over, and we ate yummy food and opened presents.
Aron and me with our presents from Ben & Tracy. He received some awesome World of Strange shirts, and Tracy made me an amazing, retro, reversible apron with with my name monogrammed on one side, and "I Wanna Baked Potato", on the other. "I Wanna Baked Potato" is a joke from several conventions ago. When asked what I wanted to eat (or how I was doing for that matter), I would say "I Wanna Baked Potato". I have a tendency to go catatonic at comic conventions :)

I cried when I received this beautiful apron. It meant so much to me that she made it, and that it was a personalized to fit my crazy personality.

So, we had a wonderful Christmas! It is difficult to be away from our friends and family in Florida, but spending time with our friends in Tennessee is delightful. How were your holidays this year?

I will be back tomorrow to share more of my Christmas loot!

My Favorite Things: Pamela Love Jewelry

I have recently stated that I need to start a new blog feature titled "Shit I Can't Afford". It looks like Pamela Love Jewelry falls into that category. But a girl can dream, can't she?

I am fascinated by Pamela Love's Classic Collection: the bird claws, talons, and the snake necklaces have such an amazing, organic feel. Maybe the eagle claw necklace will be a Christmas present from my fabulous husband? We'll see.....

Thanks for stopping by :)
