Not Gone!

I haven't disappeared, I promise! 

I'm in the process of moving houses AND getting posts and whatnot ready for my internship. 
I'm sure most of you have heard about the shooting at Emanuel AME Church that took place on Wednesday (June 17th). Everybody here is pretty shaken up by it as you can imagine. It happened a little more than a few blocks from where I used to live, which is pretty scary. Very tragic, the city is hurting. 

I watched Requiem for a Dream again last night because John had never seen it. I really do love it, but if you haven't seen it you need to mentally prepare yourself to hate your life for the rest of the day (or week). It's a very intense movie. 

Hopefully I'll have time tomorrow to get up an actual post. In the mean time, check out this reef squid! So crazy looking! 

Talk to ya'll soon!

Inspired By: Wedding Season

Wedding season is officially in full force down here in the south. 
They seem so stressful. The bride, bridesmaids, maid of honor, groom, and everyone involved in the planning process really. It takes a lot of hard work to get those sparkly champagne flutes with just the right amount of sparkle. 
Sometimes you just can't make it to some of the events, which sucks! (or doesn't suck, depending on your feelings about wedding season). 
But just because you can't go doesn't mean you can't still feel that feeling of dressing up in a clean, spring/summer outfit, decked out with flowy fabrics or frills, and of course the jewelry. 

Wedding Season Casual

Of course you would never wear white to another girl's wedding, but you're in the clear since you aren't actually there. Pair it with some pastels, heart shaped sunglasses (feel the love?), and drink a yummy cocktail and toast to the happy couple in spirit. 

Wedding Season: Borrowed & Blue

If you do miss the wedding/wedding event, it doesn't mean you can't get dressed up! Take to the real wedding spirit and wear something "borrowed and blue". So technically speaking, you don't even have to buy something new since it should be "borrowed". But again, who needs an excuse to buy a new nail polish? 

I wish I had more weddings to attend this season. I love wedding atmospheres. Everyone is so dressed up, the decorations are almost always on point (thanks Pinterest!), and the bride always looks stunning. Oh well, I'll just take my own advice and dress for the season.

Disney Princess Makeovers

I'd like to pretend I know a lot about art, but I don't. It's something I'd like to master, and I use the word "master" loosely, when I have spare time. 
In my internet browsing time, I've seen a lot of revamped pictures of Disney princesses, and I'm a fan of most of the ones I see. It's cool to see modernized versions of my favorite characters from my childhood. 

The Little Mermaid

Snow White


Belle, Jasmine, Pocahontas, and Mulan


Cinderella inspired outfit

Modern Cinderella

I realized while I was making this that I don't own any capris. I miss wearing them, I need to get on that!

I could post these all day, I have so many saved. But I'll spare you the time and leave with just these beautiful previews. 

Which Disney princess is your favorite?
