Add a Little: Photoshop

We are moving to a new house in 6 days.... tomorrow we are moving most of our stuff to storage. So this is technically my last night in my room. Im sad. We've been in this house for 3 years, and I've grown so much in these last 3 years.  I've become ME, and I love who I've become. and I guess Im a little scared that once we move Im going to lose who I am...
Moving in just emtional and sad and I dont want to do it... So, since I can't sleep I edited some pictures from my trip I took in May to Niagara Falls and roadtripped back through Tennesse back to Texas:

Stopped by Andy Warhol's grave in Pennsylvania
My Idol.

Niagara Falls at night from the US side. They light it up with colors, its so magical in person!

Home of the King!

Have a great weekend friends!

Seester Time

My little sister M, who is going away to school soon, got her a pretty little Mac with her grad money for school.  So naturally, instead of packing, we took pictures. Here are some of the best ones:

Also, I recently became obsessed with The Day Book Blog. I now want an amazing camera and to be married and preggers. Well, more than I wanted it before.

In due time my friends...
He's still gotta put a ring on it

Birthday Boy

Yesterday was my dad's birthday! He, my 2 sisters and I spent the day at the beach, and then had a small get together at our house for cake and ice cream. Im so lucky to live so close to the beach. I love going and its always so relaxing. The area we went to was kinda secluded, so me and my little sister were able to act like little kids and build sand castles.  We fished and my dad caught a shark! It was a really great day with my family.

What I wore: top: thrifted, shorts: F21

The view from the burger place we ate lunch

Today has been a wonderful day! I got to spend it with my wonderful little sister who is leaving for her freshman year of college soon. She's pretty much my best friend, so Im sad to see her leave. We started out the day at Target, where we bought some birthday gifts for our dad whose birthday is  tomorrow and I got some clothoes that I am questioning if I should return. If I decide to keep them I'll post picutres.
After Tar-jay we stopped by my boyfriends work. He is currently the manager of a thrift store. As amazing as that sounds, I actually dont find too many things there that I like. Although today I did find a few items:

beautiful handmade earrings for $1.50

blue printed scarf that I got for $1!! I have an awesome idea for it already!!

a lovely green/blue button down

We then stopped by Borders since they are having a going out of business sale! They claim everything is 40% off, but beware friends, most things are only 10%, magazine are the only thing that 40% off. I hate false advertisement. But, I did manage to find a few things that I got a good deal on:

BABUSHKA DOLL CUPS!!!! I have been wanting these forever!! If you look below you can tell Im kinda obsessed with them!! Last year for Christmas I got a handmade set from Russia!!

I love Emma Stone, shes hilarious and has great style. Do you remember the Golden Globes last year!!!

I love the Wizard of Oz. Its one of my favorite movies, and in high school I was in the musical of it. I got this for $4!! steal!

After a day full of shopping we relaxed at La Madeline for dinner. Love eating there.

Finally, here is my outfit I wore today! This is one of my favorite tops. Its super comfortable and it has my babushka dolls on it! BE YOURSELF!!!

F21 earrings, white tank, wedges
Old Navy olive pants and yellow tank

Untill next time my friends... I plan on enjoying my night off making cupcakes and watching Company Men with my sister! and tomorrow will hopefully be filled with the beach, margaritas and seafood!

Outfit of the Day

Over the weekend I finally had time to do my first outfit of the day!!Working at a hospital doesn't give me much time to wear normal people clothes, so I try to make the most of it when I get the chance. So here is the story: one of my bestest friends is leaving to go back to school and she and I had a goodbye extravaganza on Saturday night involving Captain America (best movie ever!!!), sushi and drinks at a pub. It was fabulous.

Hey Chris Evans Hey....

I chose to wear an amazing pair of floral print pants that I got about a year ago at a thrift store called Value Village. Its the coolest store. Most things cost under $5 and Im usually able to find on trend items there very easily.
Funny story about these pants: When I first saw them, I thought they were a skirt!! The legs are so flowy that they blended together! AND they were only .90 cents!! How cool is that!!

Here are the pants that I wore with an Old Navy tank and F21 belt, jewlery and wedges

Here is a semi-full body

da jewelry from F21

My bestie who is leaving me :(

My wonderfull boyfriend who met up with us at the pub with some other friends

I am in love with my pants. and Im always trying to think of new ways to wear them. Any ideas??

Like I mentioned before I went thrifting yesterday! I LOVE thrift stores!!! Im obsessed. and I got a TON of goodies to share with ya'll! and, lucky me there are very few alterations I will have to make! If you havent already, everyone should check out . This lovely lady decided that for a full year she would find a new outfit for a dollar. She went to thrift stores/garage sales and found pieces for $1 and sewed/tweaked it into something new and fabulous! Its amazing and inspiring!

Since finding her site a little over a year ago I have been much more adventerous with my thrifting and altering my pieces.
Here is a sneak peek at what is to come!!
