signature saturday and killer legs

So today will consist of two dresses/outfits! I didn't have the time to yesterday to run to the library and use the internet :[. I went on a total cleaning spree of my apartment along with some tasty dinner making. yum. Does anyone like to cook? Lately, I've been cooking a lot. I've made up my own recipe too. (honey ginger chicken) Tonight, I am experimenting and making coconut lime chicken.

[last nights dinner; steak,pineapple, and cherry tomato kabobs.yum]

So both dresses may look supa short on me but they really aren't that short (i promise!) I have this weird quality about me. I'm 5'1 but my legs are long. I have a short torso and long legs. Kind of silly. So when i wear short dresses i have killer legs. Also on the second dress its that type of material that clings to you so it rides up. Hence, I didn't notice in any of these pictures. I hope you all like the outfits though! I'm having fun with this week! I love wearing dresses because I feel its like a whole outfit. You don't have to worry about a top or a bottom cause you have them both! :]

I declared the past two days as no makeup days for myself. Which is so lovely. So if i look rough to you, its okay.

And since its signature saturday I'll tell you my signature bible verse I know this may sound funny..but this seriously is the bible verse i always go back to. A teacher in 8th grade dedicated it to me and told me its exactly who i was. Since then I have tried to live up to this verse.

1 Peter 3:3-4
3Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. 4Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight.
Something to think about..

happy weekend loves! i hope you have fun. any fun plans anyone?

love love love,

diamonds and rewinding era

diamonds Pictures, Images and Photos
I am sure you are all getting sick of my blog posts with just outfits. So i decided to talk about a girl's best!

i'm a diamond Pictures, Images and Photos
Diamonds were first worn by a french woman in 1430. She founded the fashion of wearing them. Agnes Sorel was the name of the Frenchwoman. Diamond is the hardest substance known to man. Also, a diamond's 'fire' or glow is a result of the way the substance reflects light within itself off of its many surfaces. The light is in turn reflected back to the eye creating a glow.
I'm a huge history buff. I love history, and reading about it. Usually I stick to things like wars, the women's movement but i thought fashion would be a bit more fun. Who doesn't like a nice diamond? Honestly, I am kind of a pearl girl ;]. Whats your favorite stone or piece of jewelry? I love earrings! :]

i sometimes swear i was meant for a different era. as i was wearing todays dress i felt like i was on a trip back to the 60s. i loved it though. it was sooooo hot today. hence why my hair is up again.

It seems to be that I am hitting up a bunch of bargains. I got the cute shoes I am wearing in todays outfit for only $5.00. Plus, i bought the movie for 3.99 along with Vicky Christina Barcelona for 5.99. I do love sales.

They are lovely. All girl band, who play keyboards with catchy beats and lyrics. Check them out! My favorite song is Sad Song . They are definitely a great band to look into!

Day 1 of Dress Week

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
So over atUnravelled Threads she is having a dress week challenge. Wear a dress everyday for a week! I love dresses so i though this was an awesome idea. Today would be dress day number one! You all should check it out and participate. It'd be fun to see everyones dress looks

I have this awesome but kind of boring body con dress. I always try to layer other dresses, tops or sweaters over it. Today was a bit gross and rainy in Wilmington so this is how this outfit came about. I love love floral, i love heels, i love bright colors, i love trench coats, and i love my bf glasses. Yup so i love this outfit! I feel awesome rocking this dress. So this post might be a little picture heavy. also, don't mind the silly faces my bf kept making me laugh.

i also totally felt like a teacher or professional something. or maybe an accountant.

tattoo segment one

i've decided to split up my tattoo post.  so for now it will be one a week. i thought it'd  be a fun little segment to do :]. I will post a picture and fill you in on the story behind them.

But first I am going to start a little theme for Saturday. Saturday will now be Signature Saturday . Meaning every Saturday I will talk about some of my favorite signature items.  Todays signature item will be my signature perfume choices. I basically love love love perfume.  I actually have three favorite and signature perfumes I wear. I try to stick to one for a while but I always end up mixing it up. Like i have my good luck perfume, my every day wear perfume and my evening going out perfume. 

1) My favorite every day wear perfume is Fantasy by Britney Spears.I love how it smells exactly how it sounds. Its ridiculously lovely. It smell so sweet and i love it. I feel super girly when i wear it. I also adore the pink bottle with rhinestones. I love sparkly things and anything pink really.

2) My evening perfume is definitely Chance by Chanel . I love anything Chanel. The perfume lasts for a while. I can wear it all night with out worrying that scent has faded to nothing. Lovely lovely. 

3) For good luck i love to wear Daisy by Marc Jacobs . I always wear it when i need a boost of luck. I've worn it to most of my job interviews, first days of work and sometimes just for fun. I love how light and floral it is.   So springy :]

What are your favorite perfumes?

FInish this post off   with one of my favorite tattoos. I believe this was my fourth tattoo but probably my favorite. I love birds. I absolutely do.  I love the song Blackbird by the Beatles. This tattoo isn't after that song because its a sparrow but it makes me think of it.  It represents freedom. I can relate to the Rilo Kiley lyrics, I am flawed if I'm not free This picture is from when I first got it 3 years ago so its not exactly looking like that anymore.

hiding out

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Its a very rainy and very wet day in wilmington. Right now Michael and I are hiding in the library using real internet! I was trying so hard to connect onto a network at my apartment but couldn't. So we decided to go on this rainy night adventure. Also, i am going back to work tomorrow morning! Thank you God. :] I needed that one.

I feel like this week has been full of yummy treats and delicious foods. Everything i've eaten or tried has been the best thing i've had. So i feel like sharing on some of my new fave treats.

1)First on the list. I used to not like soda at all and i didn't drink it for a looong time. Wilmington kind of killed that streak. So instead of soda..I've been drinking Izze now. I used to drink it a a lot but not I am trying to get the 4 pack of it to store in my fridge. My fave is pomegranate. Tasty.

2) These amazing lovely Vegan Vanilla Cupcakes from our local co-op. They are so rich and tasty. Now i want one!

3) This bar thing my boyfriend had today..was one of the most amazing treats ive been given. It was Cherry Pie Flavored. It was delicious. I want more. I stole like a ton of bites out of his. This lovely treat was a Lara Bar I want one of those now too..

4) Some type of Blue Jamacian Coffee. I had a sample of it at Fresh Market and it was amazing. I love coffee. This stuff was just so smooth. I have to go back and buy some this week!

Also, i am moving this august to a new apartment. I have some ideas for redoing the place.
For my bedroom, I like the idea of the tree. My color palette is black,tiffany blue and gold. I know may sound strange but my mom got me this awesome black/gold comforter.

I am also digging this idea for my kitchen. I am thinking of painting one wall coral, and doing the whole picture on cabinet thing. I have the idea of clip frames and velcro for that one though

I love decorating so I am really pumped for this new apartment!! :] Btw, my next blog post is going to be all about my tattoos. And some sewing. I've been lacking on the whole sewing thing..i've been having spring fever.

xo & cupcakes

P.S. I decided to get my hair styled for my bday. Any ideas? Pictures would be awesome. I think I want to wear it down :]

living in the 70s

still no proper internet..fingers crossed this will be fixed soon! today i have decided to answer a few questions about myself. so everyone can get to know me a bit better! i encourage us all to do this!

Also, on a really random note! Before i get to the q&a's my boyfriend and i came up with a really random idea. The idea is named Babaritos You may be thinking what the heck is this crazy girl talking about. Well, we want to open our own burrito stand. We are burrito eating, burrito loving, and burrito tiempo kinda people. We were just messing around with the idea and then it became a legit idea. We are going to try to get the permits, raise the money with fundraisers and get this thing on the road. We are planning on coming up with crazy, awesome burritos. Not just the normal kind but some ethnic flair too it. Also, we want to keep the prices low because we are poor college kids! It sucks because we love burritos and the one place we go to its like 10 dollars plus + to enjoy a nice burrito. Not cool! So anyways, babaritos was born. (the name comes from the nickname for the bunny, baba)

How many tattoos do you have? What are they?
I have 7 tattoos, nothing too big. Start from my first. Jasmine Flower between my shoulder blades, stars on my chest, anchor on my waistline,sparrow on my foot, dove with olive branch on my ribs, home on my wrist, and last my tree with serendipity underneath. I get a lot of crap for having tattoos..because I'm a Christian and my dads a pastor. Its annoying but i just keep smiling and forget about judgement.

Tell me about your job:
I love my job! Although, i haven't been there in almost 2 weeks. (boss has been sick) I work as an assistant for an accountant. I do a lot of paper work, filing, running numbers through bank accounts, running errands and etc. I miss working right now! I am actually a nervous wreck because my boss hasn't called or texted me to let me know when i am coming in next! *fingers crossed that he does*

Last question to finish off the questions. What are your favorite shoes and why?
Oh my gosh, i can't pick just one. I love all my shoes. So i'll tell you my top 3 faves. My moccasins which were given to me from my bf from Christmas. They are so comfy, soft and go with most of my wardrobe. My Van's authentics, they match everything, they are broken in, and a great year round shoe. Last but not least my sandals from f21..for the same reasons as the other two pair. :]

Also, outfit of the day. I was kind of nervous showing of my stomach, I was kind of bloated and I'm self concsious about my weight. I was feeling the 60/70s vibe. I felt like this is something my mom would have worn back in the day. It was perfect for the beach too. I even wore a big floppy hat while laying out.
