Future Thinking.

As my friend Monica would say, "Don't plan to far ahead because you never know how it's going to turn out" maybe not in those exact words but fairly close.
But, I really can't help but plan for the future!  As Ryan's graduation date approaches nearer and mine soon to follow, I am all about what we are going to do next.
I have sent my cover letter and resume to a different magazine for my next internship and as I am waiting for the reply, I can't help but think of 2012.
I have so many ideas and am not real sure what to do with them.

Right now, I am all about finding something I love, and making the impossible, possible through DIY projects.
I don't have many things right now to fill a home, but I have the inspiration to make it happen.

One idea I have in mind is finding a few old chairs, sanding them to perfection, repainting them to my desired color and reupholstering the seats with my choice in fabric.  You can find how it's done here.
I love the cottage chic look I found in Charlotte Magazine, the antique table gives the room an edgier look while all the other pieces in the room are softer. 
Those chairs actually used to brown!  I love that she repainted them white and reupholstered the seats to a powder blue!

What I'd give to get started today!

Missing My Mom.

Whenever I miss my mom, I love when the holidays come around because I know all I have to do is turn on the tv and hope for the target commercial to air.
This is seriously my mother when the holiday seasons start.
Makes me smile everytime.

I love you mom!
Can't wait to run on Black Friday with you!

As My Fashion Begins To Evolve.

Happy November!

I know it's been far to long, but with school work coming due as the end of the school year approaches, and a much needed trip last weekend to Wilmington to see Ryan, I am finally back on schedule.

As I was searching the internet for fun vintage items that I can add to my ever growing wardrobe, I stumbled upon ModCloth.
Expressing yourself through fun, unique pieces makes getting dressed in the morning fun, not to mention offers up the sweet chance to show off your new find!

Soft colors and floral prints have been catching my eye lately.
Next up on my wish list of buys, just a few simple things that can be worn both in the office or out.

I have to add this jacket in as well, everyone is always in need of a beautiful fall jacket.
Isn't it gorgeous?

ModCloth houses more than just clothing, they also offer decor for the home or office, toys, and pet leashes and collars.
Be sure to check out their website here and don't miss out on all the advice and DIY projects on their blog.
