Is it summer yet?

Summer Outfit

I love sunshine. I love summer. I dislike snow, especially how much snow we’ve had this winter. That’s partly because I spent my last winter in California, where it was 80 degrees in January and I laid out in the sun. Yesterday it got up to 48 degrees, I think, and it had me wishing for Spring so badly! I can’t take ANY more snow!! I just want to wear my cute new swim suit and lay out in the sun!

So sometimes, when my desire for summer just gets to be too much, I pull out my favorite shorts and a summery t-shirt, turn up the heat and sit around in them.

Not sure if it helped.

Dear warm weather,

Please come soon. Melt all the snow. Gimme those Western endless blue skies.

Threateningly,

Britt.

Corduroy, Bows and Stripes

I realize I wear my striped shirt way too much, but it’s my favorite shirt, guys! It is! And this bow jacket was a gift. I’ve had it for almost a year now, and still have never worn it for a blog post. I keep wanting to, though. I just have never found a cute enough outfit. I wore it to church last Sunday and really liked the outfit. It’s a bit more wintery, so I’ll post those photos later.

Other than that, you may have noticed more recipe photos than normal from me. It’s true, it’s true, I’m actually cooking regularly. Later this week, I’ll be posting about how cooking wasn’t as hard as I thought it’d be.

Until then, thank you guys so much for your continued support and view. It really means so much to me.

Shellac Again

I couldn’t resist, I had to get my nails done with shellac again. It’s just too convenient! I’m telling you! I am seriously contemplating buying my own stuff to do it myself!

Although it was quite an adventure getting these done, I ended up 45 minutes away from where I live, got called a liar, almost suffocated from fumes–but got free chocolate (which is really all that counts for anything).

Ombre and Sheer Shirt

I’m kind of starting to like my glasses…but I really can’t wait until my doctor in California sends me my prescription so I can go buy new contacts. I miss them. Got this shirt on Monday from Kohl’s.

Things:

I’ve been to Yogurtland an ungodly amount of times over the past two weeks. Their cheesecake + strawberry + strawberry/lemon sorbet + cheesecake bites + coconut shavings + boba + almond slivers + strawberries + yogurt chips + mochi = HEAVENLY BLISS. I’m afraid to try anything else now.

I am a Soprano One in the Women’s Choir at my school. I’ve always been an Alto. It’s exciting and fun.

I’m listening to Britney Spears.

The blog’s “one year” was like a month ago and I forgot to mention it and make a huge deal.

I am in love with the song Kaleidoscope Heart by Sara Bareilles. LOOK IT UP. Better yet, here’s a link. This song taught me how to spell “kaleidoscope.”

I haven’t written in my journal for 10 whole days and it’s killing me. I love venting all my super private, not-socially-acceptable-when-said-aloud thoughts. And other deep, philosophical streams of consciousness that no one wants to hear.

Politics. SO MUCH POLITICS EVERYWHERE.

Checkerboard and Half Moon Nails

Scotch tape is your friend. I promise I’ll stop using my cell phone and start using my  real camera to take these pictures.

I love these designs! I’ve got this one right now. And as you can see, I do these at work. It’s like my hobby.

Cloud Nails v2

A variant on the Cloud Nails I did a bit ago. Super cute and fun! I love them so much. Boyfriend thinks they look like Easter eggs, so that’s a plus for the holiday season! Still a huge fan of Spring! Go Spring!

China glaze (thanks Megggg) Recycle (grey), Happy Go Lucky (yellow), Flip Flop Fantasy (pink)

Rainy California

Wool scarf: Gap; Jacket: Sonoma; Skirt: Charlotte Russe; Leggings: Forever21; Boots: Old Navy

Let’s pretend I meant for the background to be in focus and for myself to be not in focus. K thanks.

Sometimes it rains in California. Before I lived here, every time I came to visit, it was raining. It always ruined my fun and made it no fun to go to the beach. Now, I love it when it rains!

But it’s funny: even with the rain, and in the middle of winter, it never gets cold enough for me to break out any kind of thicker jacket than the one you see above.

Oh, California–never will I leave you. Now if only I could get my friends and family to move out here.

Happy Thanksgiving and Hair

Happy Thanksgiving!

I’m so excited to go get some food…I haven’t eaten anything all day in preparation. I wasn’t able to go home and visit my family this year because of my work schedule, but I’m lucky enough to have people in the area who I can go eat with!

While I was getting ready, I decided to take photos of my hair in all it’s stages: first, wet and un-brushed; second, brushed and blow dried; third, styled!

I love braided bangs. Super cute. Decided to dress mostly casual, but I didn’t want to go too casual, so I added the jacket (from Charlotte Russe) and boots (from Old Navy.) Hopefully everyone else is dressed informally, too. It might be awkward. I’ll keep you updated. I’m going to be late, though, so sorry if this post is rushed!

Ugh, I hate jeans. More on that later. Happy Thanksgiving to all!
