Shoe Style

I was watching Tv this morning and kept seeing a commercial for The only reason I was intrigued is because you take a quiz about your style and get a style profile. Here is mine.
I do have to say I love that red shoe! I really like neutrals, I don't know what it is about it but no matter how many bright colors I get I still go to my neutrals the most. Even if you don't buy anything its fun taking the quiz and seeing if its correct or not. I'd say mine hit the spot :).

Our Mini Garden

My mom and I have started a little garden starting mainly with herbs. We have basil, mint peppermint, mint, lavender, parsley and cilantro. We also have a couple pepper and bell pepper plants, and a tomato plant. There might have been a couple that I left out but it is at least a start. I love having our mini garden type of thing, mainly because the mosquitos don't come on the patio but it cuts some of the costs especially since herbs are expensive.

Right now I am in the process of getting things from the apartment since I'm moving back with my parents for a little bit before, my best friend, Megan's lease is up in December. Hopefully everything will go according to plan and we can get a cute little apartment in Dallas.
I plan on doing something like what Elsie and Emma did on abeautifulmessThey have a tutorial on how to do hanging basket garden, it would work perfectly for an apartment with a patio. Can't wait to try it! :)

Salmon Polka

Finally I get a chance to take pictures of one of my favorite outfits! It was a rainy day when I got the chance to take pictures, but thankfully I was able to do it before it started. :)
Last week was super hectic especially for being my first week of my break. I worked 5 days and ran my butt off every day. Needless to say I am exhausted and didn't really get a chance to do anything super productive like I wanted to. Good news is that I will have more time this week :) There is so much I want to create, just have to make time to do it. I also updated my portfolio for an inquiring merchandiser last week so every minute I had went to that and sleep. I'm just excited that I'm working a lot, not only at work but at home.

Orange Starburst

When we had our garage sale awhile back I took some pictures of my moms flowers in her garden. I'm not exactly sure what kind of flower it is but it reminds me of a lilly. I absolutely love lilies. In our wedding I had different kinds of lilies in my bouquet and different places through out the reception. My favorite flower is the stargazer lily, there's just something about the colors and the shape that just tickles my fancy. :)

Finals this Week

The reason why things haven't been normal on here is due to my finals. This week has just been out of wack for me since Chris is now in Arizona and finals, and working. Trying my best to not stress out.
Last night we had a big thunderstorm here in Dallas and my poor car got hit and my windshield got chipped. :( But here are a couple of my ads that I turned in.

There are some slight changes that need to be done to the them but just haven't gotten around to them yet since I just got done with classes last night. These were for my photo art direction class. All the photos for the ads were taken by me. :)

Ad #1 - Mushroom beauty product (Weil)
Ad #2 - Forever 21
Ad #3 - Target brand bones (Boots & Barkley)

Crawfish n' Besties

Saturday after I got off work I went to a crawfish boil at Queen City Tattoo with my best friend Megan. I didn't have any clothes to change into after work so I was pretty much in my workout gear that I wear under my uniform. Which consists of a tank top, little Nike shorts and my cross training shoes. All black. I felt kinda weird since that isn't the kind of stuff I wear on a normal basis but I still had a good time. Just felt a little weird, haha. I haven't ever been to a crawfish boil before but I absolutely loved it. All of the food was delicious! I couldn't stop eating it!

We were in a little space above the tattoo shop and on the roof, haha. They were talking about turning it into one or two little apartment spaces. It was so cute, it was run down some of the walls had brick exposed. I wouldn't mind living up there. Even if they didn't do a whole lot to it. Granted it would need some little things fixed but the loft style it has is just awesome.
I totally want to have my own crawfish boil! :)

Embers and a Heart

 I have been in the process of coming up with some lanyards but decided to make a necklace either for myself or to sell. Since I found this glass heart while my mom and I were out bead shopping. I had to wait on some crimp beads to completely finish it (more of waiting to have some time to go get some).
I can't wait until I finish it. :)

Planner Making: Part 2

In a previous post, planner making, I shared the start of my planner coming together. I have only got to put together 3 months. The first month I wanted to do a hard back but it just didn't work out. However, I did do a paper back for 2 of the months. I really liked the way they turned out. I still have yet to finish my ones that will be for sale but the end of the quarter is next week so I will have more time :).
I'm using some scrapbook paper, so it is a more like card stock. I will eventually use my own graphics to cover it but just for the sake of time I'm using the scrapbook paper.

Product Shots From Photo Art Direction

A couple weeks ago I got to go work in the studio at my school for the first time. I absolutely loved it. I want to do more studio work. The top photo is while one of my group mates was taking her product shots. I really like how you can't see her at all. The bottom two are a couple of my product shots. The left is a clutch that I absolutely love that use to be my great-grandmothers. I'm just so scared that I'm going to break it. I figured why not take some photos of it while I still have it in pretty decent shape. The bones are little dog bones for my dog/animal direction photos. I also took pictures of this hideous looking hedgehog, but it just doesn't flow right so I nixed it. I'm also going to take it back because it doesn't even squeak. Sad face. The bones, Busa absolutely loves them, he can't seem to get enough. In fact I think there is only one left, looks like I will have to get him some more. :)

Sunday on the Lake

Yesterday Chris and I went to the lake with his sisters and some of their friends. We had a wonderful time if I do say so. I rode my first jet ski! My sister-in-law, Cassie, rents out jet skis out at Lewisville lake. Chelsie, my other sister-in-law, and Cassie taught me how to ride them. Boy, was it fun!! The in-laws ended up showing up with the twins. I hope they had a good time.

We had some fun, we were there from the morning till the moon showed its face. What a fantastic day to spend relaxing. 
How was your weekend? Do anything special?

I'm Such a Sap

Today is my day off from school and work so I've been using this time to take my time, relax and get some homework done. After starting my study guide for Social Psychology I figured I would find something on Netflix. It took me awhile to even figure out what kind of a mood I was in, but I finally decided I wanted to watch something romantic. Yeah, I know super girly. I normally watch action and thrillers so I figured I would be a girl for a change. I picked out this movie called Listen to Your Heart. I had never heard about it before and figured why not give it a try. I loved this movie, but it made me ball my face out.
It made me happy, mad, sad, and just about every other emotion. Which is probably why I liked it so much. It is such a good love story and has to deal with music. Just beware that if you are a sap like me you will definitely cry, a lot especially towards the end. I'd recommend that if you love, love stories then you should watch it. If you aren't really into that sort of thing then you probably wont like it very much.

I will eventually leave the house to day.
