Valentines Week : Day Two






So Valentines Day is typically just ONE day out of the year and well that just seems silly to me. So here is one way to keep a memory of love day. Also it smells delicious so I mean that can't hurt either.

You Need:

1. A jar - Can be whatever kind you want! Even a mason jar would be cute. 

2. Twine

3. Those lovely lovely roses or whatever kind of flowers your love bug gets you.

How To:

1. Dry those fantastic flowers. I hang mine on a clothes hanger upside down with an elastic. 

2. Take the pedals off.

3. Put them all in the jar.

4. Put the lid on and then tie the twine around the jar making a bow. Or a few bows.

Cute cute and easy! And your lover will be so happy to see that those flowers didn't go to waste in the trash bin.

XOXO

Maxi Time





Maxi Dress & Blouse - CalledToSurf, Shoes - AE

Am I being so ridiculous doing another Spring time fashion post? Didn't think so.
Don't let the looks of that snow fool you. The weather has been unseasonably warm over here. I am supposed to being living in the great white north but it has decided to be nice to this cold weather hater. Not mad. Not mad one bit!

I am a firm believer that a maxi dress can solve even the worst of days. Put a maxi dress/skirt on and you automatically run the world. No joke. Or at least you feel that way anyways. Let's be honest, that really is all that matters. Layer it up, or don't. They are cute and casual no matter what. Ahh. Simple and fashionable all at the same time. Now who could ask for more. 

Not this girl. This girl loves simple!

So buy a maxi why don't you & get yourself in the spring or traveling mode!

XOXO

There is no time to waste!

Utah







Oh Utah. 
You are beautiful.
Beautiful people.
Beautiful, delicious food.
Beautiful shopping.

The only thing wrong with you Utah..
..You are too far away.

This weekend won't be the same with out you.

Oh and if you are wondering if I ate three Krispy Kreme doughnuts in the span of three hours because I was so depressed to leave you. The answer is yes. 

If you are also wondering if that is a total of three doughnuts more than I have eaten in three years. That answer would also be yes. Don't judge.

XOXO
