Most Eligible

There is nothing more inspiring to me than someone who, from the instant I see them, exemplifies what I look for in style, beauty and then... suddenly has me wanting everything they own! From the hair to the accessories, all the way down to the pumps they are rocking. 

I am not really in to the show Most Eligible Dallas, but when I came across it one night and nothing else was on.. I could not help but want to watch little miss Courtney Kerr and her abundance of perfectly pieced-together outfits. She very quickly moved to the top of my "best dressed" list and I have been consumed ever since. I do not think I have ever seen someone dress so similar to what I love and always look so ravishing.. even when she is just in Nike and working out. Her hair is amazing and outfits continuously topped off with the most gorgeous jewelry. Check this fashionista out!

Falling for Fashion

Here are some trends that have recently caught my eye and become my must-have's for fall. If only I didn't work all the time and I had somewhere to wear some of these fabulous  items. I begin to find myself missing school, when I could show off my favorite new buys and different outfits I put together...but then that moment has passed! Funny how we get a grown-up job to make more money to buy the clothes/shoes/stuff we love but then we are too busy to show them off. I swear I have somewhat of a life... going to visit some old friends tonight!

Urban Outfitters
UO Shoes

I am obsessed with Aztec.
Ombre Blue

Hair Tips
This colorful hair trend is just gorgeous.
Long Braid
Wrap Around
Boho Fishtail
These too.... hair can top off any outfit!

 Where did you go, Alexis?
Tangerine Lips
Be brave, wear some color on those lips!
 Thicker shorts in various fabrics for chilly weather (look great with tights).
Need Supply Co.

American Apparel
 Thigh high.

What are some of your new favorite trends?

Five Favorites

Short and sweet, here are a few of my favorite things/obsessions right now... hope everyone had a good weekend!

Kate, of course

Weddings and the gorgeous dresses that go along with them.

My favorite new show that, sadly, did not catch my attention until the end of the season.. I will have to be more prepared in the future! (I was rooting for the sweet little Silhouettes group), absolutely breathtaking. Plus my favorite performance by the dance group Iris.

The new love of my life, my car. The 2012 Ford Focus.


Fall boots, boots, boots.  

And most importantly... spending time with my crazy family. It had been a month too long!

Sweet Tooth

Is it just me or are sweets haunting us all even more than usual? There are so many delicious deserts to try everywhere I go.. including this cupcake madness! My obsession began with Cupcake Wars on Food Network and since then the adorable little shops are popping up all over the Oklahoma City area (so I am sure they are getting very popular everywhere). I have always had a sweet tooth and I have to say this amazing mix of surprising flavors put into a cupcake, (topped with a ton of icing, of course!) are only going to make things worse for me. But, I am LOVING it, I see it as such an art. What yummy deserts or flavors have you tried?

Banana Cream Pie & Champagne

 Chocolate Malt, Red Velvet & Pumpkin Spice

Strawberry Shortcake and Chocolate Salted Caramel

Here are other places in my area I plan to visit and slowly get around to tasting different flavors:

Sara Sara
Cuppies & Joe
Cookies by Design

Something is in the air.... I'm not sure what it is. I guess the more I grow up I see things the way I couldn't before. I am really figuring out my life and it is definitely for the better. I want more than anything to know that in my lifetime I lived to the fullest, appreciated the beauty in everything around me and let nothing pass me by. 'Love' is so cliche but so important. Love yourself so you can love others, love life and find pure happiness. I am going to try my best to keep this in mind and stick to it. 

Striving to follow through with this new outlook on life, (ha!) I did some things I normally wouldn't. We can get stuck on our daily patterns and so sucked into work or stressful situations that come along with growing up. So instead of the usual work, sleep, work, sleep schedule.. you know how it goes, I had one of the best days I have had in a really long time. There is no better feeling than to be bursting with happiness!

Not that I didn't love and appreciate my life before, but the amazing people around me have shown me there is so much more to be grateful for. You have shown me what beauty is. So get out, explore, and live! This is my dedication to doing the same.

After a long day of work, my boyfriend of almost 5 years Justin and I drove to a nearby small town for the miniature version of the German festival Oktoberfest. You don't realize how fun these silly events could be until you are actually there. It was a great night filled with food, rootbeer, friends, and great music!

But the night was not over yet, we then decided it was about time to see a movie in theaters. It was the perfect night to roll down the windows, smell the fresh air, and what else? Blast some Celine Dion! Sometimes it feels so good to go for a drive, let your mind wander and listen to the music. It was perfect.


This Is It

Today is the day....for me to attempt blogging. I am not totally sure how well I can keep it up, but I LOVE checking up on other blogs daily, plus I need a way to jot down my favorites, create inspiration and share my favorite experiences and memories. Intriguing! Fingers crossed..
