"Love's completely real, so forget anything that you have heard and live for the moment now."



i could listen to this on repeat for the rest of my life.

i love this close up black & white video and the foot tapping in the back ground.

evil tricks for sure.



Here's some meep to crush on for the day/year/life.

I realize to some this would seem uber-dorky.
However, I totally dig on pop-culture ridiculousness.

strange name, yes but these are super cute. I've purchased other things from this etsy shop and was very pleased with it. The earrings are all very meep and at a very good price.

Lovely Living Room
found here.

I came across this on one of my daily blog-reading binges. I love to see that other people's closets invade the rest of the house as mine has been known to do. This girl has her own little "complete the look" project runway accessories wall. love it! want it!

I love this dress because it reminds me of this presidential look.



New Year, new you...right? I have plenty of resolutions this year to make myself a better person and my life more manageable. Here's hoping that I can keep them.

gym membership

working harder

playing harder

apartment decorating

eating healthy

more meep-worthy outfits


like this one!!

This is my casual NYE outfit. I didn't do anything fancy and I made plans late. The weather was less than desirable and wreaked havoc on my hair. (I had a carrot top situation on my hands, not meep.) I didn't let it get me down and threw something together.

tunic: old navy via thrift
blue tights: HUE via tjmaxx
boots: K&G super store
necklace: express
coat: Michael Kors

surprise! two-toned!
(keeps it from looking like I have smurf leg)

rain coat was a must. It thunder stormed all night. I would know. I stayed up way past my bedtime.

peach champagne, beer pong, laughing.
happy new (better) year!
