God Bless America, sweatpants are in this season! They're a thing... Sweatpants!?!?! But we aren't collectively calling them sweatpants, we're calling them 'joggers'. That makes them socially acceptable to gallivant around town in. I googled 'gallivant' just to be sure it meant what I thought it meant, and according to The Googs it means: to go around from one place to another in pursuit of pleasure or entertainment. Considering that I wore these out with my husband on a beer and wine run, I'd say I hit the nail on the head. How much more gallivant-y can you get? These are now my gallivanting pants. In all seriousness, these are actually really fun to play around with. I tried them on with almost everything in my closet. They actually look really cool and fun with heels and a leather jacket. Kendi from Kendi Everyday (if you're not reading her blog, you are doing yourself a disservice) wore them that way and they look fabulous. Then again, everything she wears looks fabulous. I kept it SUPER simple with a white denim jacket, a tank, and some sneakers. The gallivanting had to end at some point because this was on Sunday night and on Sunday nights we cut off all gallivanting at 8 PM and watch The Walking Dead. With our newly scavenged beer and wine. We're totally prepared for The Apocalypse

Are you going to jump on the jogger bandwagon this year? I do have to admit I was nervous to try them because I wasn't sure how they'd work in the hip/thigh/booty region on me. However, my husband assured me that my 'butt looks really good' in them and he's never wrong about how my butt looks. So even though they aren't the most slimming and elongating pants I've ever worn, I'm gonna embrace it, because who knows how long this trend will last? Really. Life is short.

New Photography Gear & Tips

  I think it's pretty safe to say that this blog has created a new love of photography in my life. I've always been a little shutterbug, but until I had a 'reason' to step up my photography game, I simply viewed it as a hobby. In the last year, it has become much more than that. When I purchased my camera, I wanted something I could grow with. I wasn't about to drop a ton of dough on a heavy duty Canon or Nikon when I'd never actually shot anything in manual mode and knew very little about exposure, composition, or editing. So I bought my Samsung (after doing a lot of research), which comes with an 18-55mm zoom lens. The kit lens is great, and I've taken some of my favorite pictures with it, but... I outgrew it. I could have gone out and purchased a new, more advanced camera system, but I still love my Samsung. I think it's a great 'blogging camera'. I opted for a new lens instead ( Samsung 45mm f/ 1.8 prime lens ). I could get pret

The Makeup Mix-Up: American Beauty

  Makeup Mix-Up Day is here! Now, if you're thinking that this look is remarkably similar to my profile image, you're not wrong. I knew when Jaelan and I decided on the American Beauty prompt that I wanted to do a look like this. To me, there is no one single definition of 'American' beauty, and what makes a person beautiful is when they feel good in their own skin, when they're wearing a look (makeup or not) that makes them come alive and feel confident. For me, that often means red lipstick and a subtle wing. I love the look of a bare eye and an ultra strong lip. It's my favorite look to wear and to apply, so it was a no-brainer.  First of all, how funny is it that Jaelan and I are both wearing stripes? When it comes to the makeup, we did not discuss or plan our looks together, but I am guessing that we're going to end up thinking alike more often than not on these prompts. I love Jaelan's smokey brown shadow, her strong brow, and t

Book Buying Freeze

  Book Buying Freeze I've developed this habit. This book habit. I'll go to the store on a random Tuesday. From across the room, I'll spot a book that seems intriguing. Good-looking cover. Interesting blurb on the back. I pick it up and read the first couple of pages. It makes me laugh. We hit it off, me and this book. I invite it back to my place. We open a bottle of wine and snuggle up on the couch together. Things are going great. We're getting to know each other. Maybe I even tell my best friend about this book. How great it is and how much she'd love it. Then something happens. Usually about a quarter of the way through. You know what I'm talking about. The book I thought was going to be so great, The One even, suddenly isn't so interesting anymore. Maybe it's the way it takes forever to get to the point. Or maybe it's the way it uses too many overly descriptive words. Maybe it's just a character thing. Whatever the
