On the Side, Please

Good morning, everyone, and happy Monday!

I'm attempting to be chipper today in hopes that it will be more bearable to start another fully-packed week. It's rainy here again today so it's going to take extra effort :)

I had my hair done last week by a new stylist and absolutely fell in love. My hair is a 'somewhere in between' length right now, and I love it for everyday styling. But what I wouldn't give to have long enough locks to wrap it in one of these glamorous side buns. I've developed a slight obsession with this gorgeous style and have been saving images for some time now. I think it's the perfect up-do for a party, a wedding or a special date night...

Obsessed. Especially when you add the side braid?! I suppose for now I'll just have to live vicariously through these photos or opt for some hair extensions!

Sending you happy Monday wishes, sweet friends!

 Greetings, everyone, and happy Friday to you!

What a long week it has been, my goodness. This was (not surprisingly) another busy week at work and school. I have to keep reminding myself that graduate school is completely worth it and will be over in just a few months!

I want to take a moment and welcome the new friends and followers that have stopped by this week. I'm incredibly happy to have you here, please don't be shy- introduce yourself! For those who are new, I love lists, and Friday is the perfect time to wrap up the week with a list of my favorites!

Did I mention that today marks two weeks until I'm back in the Big Easy?!
I can't wait to see my girls and celebrate all the things I love about New Orleans! Eeeee!

Friday hugs to you, sweet people!

Pink and Green Thursday: Cool Treats

Happy Pink & Green Thursday, darlings!

I hope this finds you well and having a fantastic week! It's unbelievably rainy and dreary here today and I'm in all-black for the second day in a row. (My Lilly umbrella from Trishy did add a hint of color to my morning, though!)

I was in desperate need of a pick-me-up since there isn't a ray of sunshine in sight today. My mind was flooded with thoughts of beaches, tropical drinks, bathing suits, and yummy summer treats! I'm taking a mental vacation for just a minute today and imagining what each of these would taste like on a warm summer day. . .

Is your mouth watering?! I can't imagine that it's not! Raise your hand if you can't wait for summertime!

Happy Wednesday, loves!

Just a little inspiration to get you (and me) through this Wednesday. It's another busy day, and I'm just living for the weekend. Oh, to be frolicking around in that pretty yellow dress like Miss Lively!
