Inspiration Wednesday: Vanity Fair

I am a sucker for pretty things. When I came across this picture on Pinterest the first thing I wanted to do is redecorate my room to suit this theme. The second thing was to create an outfit inspired by it.



We picked out the bolder colors and we came up with this outfit.

Inspiration Wednesday: Nintendo

Via Pinterest

The end of the year is almost here and while most people celebrate it I fight it....With everything I've got. I am so beyond not ready for the new year it's not even funny. I mean just today I headed out to Target to get some wrapping paper for our office gift exchange (hence the late post today) and I literally lost it when I saw Valentine's Day decorations on sale. What the what?!? Seriously, I haven't even pretended to wrap my presents yet and Cupid has already kicked Santa out of the way! What is that about?!

I love change and I tend to go with the flow but I don't like to be rushed. When rushed I tend to plant my feet and refuse to let change happen so of course today's Inspiration Wednesday doesn't look to the future or even to the present. Nope I'm going back a decade or two to the original gaming system. Yep. In case you don't recognize it that is the predecessor to the Xbox, PlayStation and online gaming--Nintendo! 



The colors are perfect for December and since I think Christmas needs to be celebrated in December for the whole month, today's outfit is perfect for any holiday parties you have coming up.

On Trend Tuesday: Vanessa Hudgens

via Pinterest
I admit it, I was a huge Vanessa Hudgens style fan. Then she broke up with Zac Efron and her style...Well lets just say that I prefer vintage Vanessa. This image is an older one but I think it's an outfit that is seasonless. It's comfy and cute and of course, simple.

Three Way Thursday: The Party Top

Mesh Top: $24.90


Well this top is most definitely not something you'd wear to work but its perfect for the holiday parties coming up.



The first look is perfect for a fun night on the town or dinner at a trendy place. The liquid leggings are a must in any closet and the blazer tones the shinyness down a bit, while the red clutch adds a nice pop of color.

The second look is perfect for a fun party or a night out in Vegas or at a club. We love the sparkly pop of color that the bra adds to the look.

The third look is a little more "casual" thanks to the jeans. It's a perfect look for a casual get together.

Inspiration Wednesday: Snowboarder's Delight

Via weheartit

First, please let me apologize for these late posts. We are gearing up for prom at work and working on a ton of really fun things for you (think MAY-JAH giveaways and pretty dresses!) and well the days have gotten away from us. We should be back to our regularly scheduled posting soon; at least I hope so.

Anywho, I have been dreaming about this view and aching to head up to Bear Mountain to get some runs in. In my opinion the season ends way too soon but what can you do. Mind you, I love snowboarding but whether I am any good is up in the air. I call it victory if I go a full day without a faceplant. I guess we all can't be The Flying Tomato but it sure is fun trying to be lol. Since I can't head out to the snow I am going to bring the snow to me. I used the colors off this amazing picture from weheartit.com and they're perfect.



They're not stark white and they're perfect for Winter. Now be aware that this is SO not what I would wear to go snowboarding, well maybe what I would drive up in and have my hot cocoa in since these jeans are beyond comfy. The heels may have to go but at least I can wear them here.

What's your favorite Winter activity? Tell me in the comments I'd love to know what your favorite activities are.

Must Read Monday: Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

Amazon: $10.99

You guys know I'm a sucker for a good dystopian story right? Well I think I found my new series! I had heard about this book coming out and that it was a great book for those of us that loved the Hunger Games. At first I was like yeah right puh-lease. Every new series is the new Hunger Games. As you can tell I was actually thinking that this book wouldn't live up to the hype and that I would be disappointed because it wasn't the Hunger Games and yet it was being marketed to those readers. Man oh man was I wrong because I loved this book!

What It's About:
As I already mentioned this book is a dystopian story that is based around Juliette. Here is the summary that was listed on Goodreads:
Juliette hasn't touched anyone in exactly 264 days. 
The last time she did, it was an accident, but The Reestablishment locked her up for murder. No one knows why Juliette's touch is fatal. As long as she doesn't hurt anyone else, no one really cares. The world is too busy crumbling to pieces to pay attention to a 17-year-old girl. Diseases are destroying the population, food is hard to find, birds don't fly anymore, and the clouds are the wrong color. 
The Reestablishment said their way was the only way to fix things, so they threw Juliette in a cell. Now so many people are dead that the survivors are whispering war-- and The Reestablishment has changed its mind. Maybe Juliette is more than a tortured soul stuffed into a poisonous body. Maybe she's exactly what they need right now. 

Why You Should Read It:
I know you guys are probably sick and tired of me saying "because it's so good!" but it is! More than anything I love that this series is a little different than anything I've read lately. Yes, I know I just read a book last week about a guy whose touch kills but this book is different, I promise. Whereas Touch is about a guy whose touch kills, the book is set in present day and the whole premise is that the sixes are people who were born with this ability and then capture for exploitation. In Shatter Me, Juliette is unique and no one has any idea why she is the way she is. The book is beautifully written and it almost reads like poetry. I absolutely love Adam and everything he has done to be with Juliette. I think the part that I loved the most about this book is that it broke my heart in a good way. Authors have a magnificent way of letting words make us feel and Tahereh is not an exception. I highly recommend this book if only for how beautifully she expressed Juliette's grief and fear and hope.

Let me know if you pick this book up. I'd love to hear your thoughts on it!

Fab Friday Fun: Fit Friday Forgets

TGIF, doesn't always apply when you are SUPER busy. Saturdays can be just as hectic as Mondays, and this definitely applied for me yesterday!

Fridays are my favorite days to get a great work out in before the weekend, because most likely my weekends will be spent relaxing on the couch!

Yesterday I spent the entire day baking, cleaning, shopping, crafting, ect. I had absolutely no time to work out! After I sat down on the couch around 11pm I felt more exhausted than after an intense workout. So I did a little research, I realized that my 7 hours of baking, 2 hours of shopping, 2 hours of crafting, and 4 hours of cleaning burnt around 1300 calories according to healthstatus.com. Just because you aren't "working out" doesn't mean you aren't burning those calories! The days you are super busy don't feel bad if you can't fit in a work out, because most likely you have worked off more than a usual trip to the gym! If you continue to eat healthy and stay active you will be in great shape! Mentally and Physically!

While I was baking I made sure that I had a very healthy breakfast to prevent me from eating scraps of cookie dough and other food. I also kept a bowl of healthy snacks by me at all times, If I felt the urge to eat then I grabbed the bowl of snack sand ate anything I wanted. In my snack bowl I had blueberries, an apple, almonds, dates, a fig, and Kiwi.


 For the Winter Wonderland Party we are having tonight there will be many people! The desert table is full of temptations and that is why I have to keep healthy snacks around at all times. Today we are working on the party food : Mac and Cheese, Little Smokies, and Tossed Salad.....Can you guess which one I am indulging in :)



Have a great weekend and I will make sure to post pictures of the party Sunday!
