Well, if you have been following along, you know this week is prom week for me!  I am so excited, especially because I am just loving everything about prom this year.  Our theme is "Gatsby", which I didn't really follow haha--I went with a Carried Bradshaw, Sex and the City look--but I think it is a great theme.  The decor will be perfectly glitzy and I am sure the party favors will be so much fun!  Since I am getting ready for prom this week, I thought I would share my favorite hair and makeup tutorial.

Hair: The Elsa Braid

Makeup: Natural/Beachy

Are you going to prom this year?  What are some of your tutorials/tips?

Getting Over a Cold

Well I just happened to get a cold the week of prom... yay me haha; however, I plan on getting over this cold quick so I can enjoy the rest of the week and get my to do list done!  Whenever I am sick I have a specific list of steps I use to help get me over my cold.  They are pretty simple, but it is amazing how much they help!
Getting Over a Cold
I live by these 5 steps when I am sick and I couldn't stress the last two more.  Staying hydrated and getting sleep is super important in getting over a cold.

How do you get over a cold?  Any tips/tricks I should add?

Feeling Floral

What a great weekend!  Despite the fact I have a cold, Easter was so much fun.  I awoke to an Easter surprise from my sweet parents and then we went out to breakfast.  The rest of the day I pretty much sat around doing nothing, but it was what I needed.  My mom and I honestly binged on The Little Couple for three hours straight... it was fantastic.  Anyway, here is an outfit from this weekend.  I got the top from J.Crew on sale for only $18!  It is definitely worth it!


Aren't the trees just gorgeous?  It makes me so happy to wake up and see a bright pink tree in my yard!

What did you do for Easter?

In a Funk

I was originally going to post a group of weekend links, but I decided against it because I really want to address the funk I have been in lately.  I keep telling myself it is just getting back into the swing of things from spring break; however, I can' seem to get back on track.  Everything is becoming too much of a job, but I am realizing I can't let that happen, especially with the blog.  I remember Carly Heitlinger saying something along the lines of "not letting your writing become a job".  That is what I am doing to myself: writing because I feel I have to write, which is not how it should be

Now that I am realizing what I have been doing to myself, I feel a lot better.  I feel like I can have a fresh start on my blog and get back to writing because I love to write.  I look forward to bringing you a lot of more fun and more "me" posts instead of the bland writing I have had the past few weeks.  Here's to getting out of the "funk"! 

Have you ever felt like this?  Any coping advice?

Easter Outfit

On my Balance post, I asked for some post suggestions and one reader asked me to do an Easter outfit!  What I love about Easter is getting to wear fun bright colors and spending time with my family enjoying the holiday.  For my Easter Sunday I am going to be pulling out my favorite Lilly dress, Jack Rogers, and some fun accessories to finish off the look.  Here is a variation of what I will be wearing Sunday!

Easter Sunday
You can find the Lilly dress here, since I couldn't find a direct link picture on polyvore!  Also, I highly recommend checking out Nordstrom Rack for any sale Kate Spade items.  I recently bought my pink satchel there for around $180 and it was originally $350, so be on the look out for good deals like that!
What are you doing for Easter?  What do you normally wear?

Wishlist Wednesday

It has been such a long time since I made a "Wishlist Wednesday" post, mostly because there isn't much I have been really wanting needing to get; however, because it is spring, I have a few new items that I am really liking!
Wishlist Wednesday 4/15/14
1. C. Wonder Wedges: I thought these wedges were so cute and they actually look a little like the more expensive Tory Burch pair I have been eying lately.  They would go great with any spring outfit!
2. GiGi New York Clutch: No lie, I have wanted one of these since October.  They are perfect for any outfit, including prom haha.  I personally love the Iris Blue color!
3. J.Crew Factory Scarf: I got one of these last year and I absolutely adore it.  It is perfect for the spring weather, as it is nice and light.  The print on this one would be so much fun to style too!
4. Tulle Skirt: Just another thing I have been really wanting for a while.  I love the way these skirts can be styled and I would love to re-create a Sex and the City look if I purchased!
5. Jack Rogers Jelly Sandals: When it comes to sandals, I really like jelly sandals over everything else.  They are water-resistant, super easy to wear, and really comfortable; plus who doesn't love a fun pair of Jacks?
What is on your wishlist?
