Blythe-y Hair Goodness

Well I've been thinking a lot about what to do to my crazy hair! Something needs to be done. I was searching through files on my computer and came across these pics. I have no idea of the source, so if it's yours, you rock leave a comment and I'll add your name! K!

1. This first pic is super cute, but I do NOT want my hair this yellow ever again, it's like jr. high all over lol...

2. I've sorta had my hair like this and really liked it. I never did as much pink and didn't think to do some black in with the blonde, so this looks like something fun that I haven't already done!

3. Platinum fun! Everyone always votes no for this color...but hey pirates are cool!

4. I really like Chanel girls hair here, but so many people are doing this. I was trying to think of options incase I can't get my hair back blonde....

5. Yay for blonde! My momma would be so happy if my hair were this color again! Back to normal...

Well, If you are bored and reading this post, please vote and leave a comment about what color hair you think I should have next!

Taco Tuesday: Back on Schedule Edition

I am trying to get back on track with my blogging schedule! So hello Tuesday, Taco Tuesday! This week is going to be pretty hectic for me with working everyday and trying to slip life in between. I just got back from visiting friends and family in SA-ville, it was fun but also very tiring!

I am planning my sisters baby shower which is in 2 weeks so wish me luck!

Now for some cute:

1. I am in love love with this lady's work! Liz Adams has the cutest illustrations. Most of them remind me of me, so maybe that's why I love them! This is my life this week! Knitting!

2. Teen Vogue is rocking my world! I saw this on someone else's blog and the pictures are amazing. I feel like I live in a constant state of grunge, so it's nice to see that I am not that out of style with the rest of the world lol.

3. Michelle Willliams is sooo lovely! I'm (hopefully) getting my hair done at the end of the week, and I love her hair....but do I want to go short again? What do you think?

4. Taylor Momsen has awesome style, and I love her hair too! I've actually had my hair like this before and my BF and mom hated

5. Aren't these panda shoes adorable? I wish I could afford some, but maybe I can make my own?! They look comfy! You can find them here.

6. Anyone who knows me, knows I am a huge Nirvana fan! I want to buy this soooo bad, so please don't buy it before I can! lol Find Kurt here.

7. The Olsen twins have such amazing style, and well I love a good cardigan! I really want those glasses, I am in desperate need of new ones....sigh...pic from Olsens Anonymous.

8. I love love Sally Jane Vintage! I wish I could just shop shop shop all day from her etsy! I am going to get all my teacher clothes from there! lol

9. Isn't this nursery cute! I hope to do something equally amazing when I have a baby, someday. I am pretty sure I saw this on this blog....

10. So sometimes Twilight makes me mad, and yes I read the books, own the movie, and will go see the new one....but still I don't want to like it lol...but this girl here is cute and I think she rocks! I found a tutorial on how to make these Alice wrist warmers and I really want to figure this out! Wish me luck because I stink at reading patterns lol...

11. Isn't this dress lovely......sigh.....

I hope your Taco Tuesday rocks....

goodbye, hello

Well this past week, me and this little number got in a fight. The dress won the battle, but I clearly won the war....unfortunately. I loveloved this Erin Fetherston dress, size 1. So, goodbye....

I just finished recycling part of this dress because I was sad...but now I'm excited! I just cut off the cute bib/button part and sewed it onto one of my million tanks! I know it's not perfect, but I love it! My bf thinks it's bada$$! haha

Tomorrow, I plan to wear it with this crazy blazer! It's going to be the cutest outfit ever!

I feel like I've gotten so much done today! I finished all the invites. Made this stamp:

It's a little sketch I sketched! I love wearing my hair like that lol...from my Sailor Moon phase, that never went away.

What did you get done today?

My back and fingers are killing me so I am going to relax and watch Sidney White with some popcorn, and puppy companions!

I and Love and You

It's 1 am around here and the puppies are passed out and I'm still awake. I just finished a sewing project! But I'm tired so here we go:

Hopefully this will be me soon....back to blonde.....I miss my blonde hair....

I bought this cd today and I love it. It's pretty chill.

I also bought this cd on my pumpkin spice latte run this morning, and it's amazing. I saw them at SXSW and a lot of the songs they rocked out to are on this cd!

I am anticipating this cd! Sainthood by Tegan and Sara! I'm sure it will be awesome like all their other cd's!

I like these plaid flats from Gap. Very fallish.
I made a pair of these DIY saddle shoes. Make your own by following these instructions from Bleubird.

I dunno where I got this pic, but I love it! Red is one of my fav colors, but maybe not for my hair lol.

This shirt cracked me up. One of my old roomies loved Neil Young...but that model looks mean like a zombie wearin make up and she's gonna eat your

I love this shirt and the grey hurley one below it. I own them and they are comfy...

I want this shirt....

I made this today. It took me all day but I did it and I love it. I am going to make more for people for christmas gifts!

Loki just started barking lol and scared poor little Duo. I'm going to work on some puppy sweaters for them soon. I am still trying to make granny squares...better luck tomorrow...
