Stylin' & Profilin'

I am always looking for a little style inspiration besides my own ensembles.  A few fashion gurus I look for ideas from are Rachel Bilson, Katie Holmes, Kate Bosworth, Mandy Moore and the Olsen twins from time to time. I love a bohemian chic look as well as switching in some preppy looks every now and then. Here is a picture of Kate Bosworth that I am obsessed with. Skirts are my summer clothing must have, and I have probably bought about 7 in the past week! I am also a huge fan of scarves...

I also have a new fetish, skinny jeans. I love blousy tops and heels with some skinny pantalones. I have a pair of Joe's Jeans stretchy Chelsea skinny jeans that I cannot wait to break out for the Fall. I also have very bright and vivid colors for Spring/Summer. Here is a picture of Mandy Moore who is now married and still looking fabulous.

Sleep Tight

My Anthropologie bedding is on its way! I am so excited to be getting new quilt. My Pottery Barn bedding fell apart unfortunately. I must say working isn't helping my low budget situation any. There are so many things I want for the apartment next year. I have one year left until I live on my own. I am looking forward to starting all the adventures on my own. I really have the opportunity to branch out and test the waters without being tied down to anyone or anything! Here is the bedding, now I need other creative wall and furniture ideas.

He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not

Ah, yes. The age old "DTR", or define the relationship talk. Never a happy thing, well maybe it can be sometimes haha. I just wanted to say that for all you single people, love exists.  I know it. I have felt it and I will feel it again. Here is my list of musts, based on my experience... 

Relationships must:
Be open and honest
Be a two-way street
Be fun and funny
Be a commitment (from both people)
Have a sprinkle of romance
Be healthy and wholesome
Not be dependent but interdependent
Be supportive
Be able to come to terms (in arguments, etc.)
Be adoring
Have similar values and morals
Be....liking and loving

Here are some questions to ask yourself:
Do you refresh, not exhaust each other?
Can you share anything, whether you do or not? Does your mate know you better than your friends do?
Do you respect each other's insecurities? (everyone has them)
Finish the sentence: "She/He is wonderful, but..."
Do you understand the only person who can change is yourself? And even then only to a limited degree?
Do you handle conflict well enough not to fear it with each other?
Do your friends/family approve?
Are you both past the point of comparing yourselves? Or seeking approval?
Do you sit in silence easily together?
Do you love, not just like each other?
Do you like, not just love each other?

Just some food for thought....

Sun hat-tastic

Summer is here and it is time to accessorize. My favorite accessory this summer is the sun hat. Gals, saving your face from the sun we all know works wonders in the future. Sun hats are also a fun way to jazz up an outfit or even make a dull swimsuit come to life. With all shapes, colors, and brim sizes there is no way you can't find your perfect hat! Personally, the bigger the brim the more glamorous you become. Some great places to find these hats are at Target and Anthropologie. I also love the fedora. For those check out Target and Urban Outfitters. They have a wide selection of hats. I think the key to finding the perfect one, is all about the stiffness of the brim. I think the more stiff the better. You do not want a hat flopping in your face all the time. (annoying) Here are some hats I love from Anthropologie. --Also, the countdown begins the internship starts in two days and I have no clue what to wear.... nail biter.

Days at Anthro

So I haven't written in a few days, this would be because my busy summer schedule. I started back at Anthropologie, and let me just say ahhh!!!! I miss being there with all the girls, but I don't miss closing ;). I am in love with all the summer clothes and I can't stop buying things. Thank goodness for my discount. I have new jeans (2 pairs) new tops and a skirt that looks grandma-ish, so I love it. I am also back with some of the funniest girls I have ever met. However being back makes me realize that wow I need to workout. Staying in shape in retail is essential for closing purposes I believe. I get really tired from hanging up hundreds of clothes it seems and walking around the store really fast. I go back to work today so who knows what I will bring home haha. I decided to add pictures of some of my purchases. I simply love summer and summer clothes! I promise to write soon!

Love Letters

Love letters to you. These are love letters that I thought were so genuine. It inspires me to write my own love letter to someone I care deeply about. Love letters are a taste of how deep our heart and soul really are. The deep feelings come out, they are on paper for all to see. You become exposed. They are not just a dream, but real. These couples love letters prove that love exists. They prove that there is a happily ever after. Did I tell you that I love love? I am a sucker for romantic endings, love at first sight, and soul mates. Summer is here and I want to be swept off my feet and love and be loved. Read on...

Dear Manu,

I can be myself when I am with you. Your idea of romance is dim lights, soft music, and just the two of us. You make me feel like I have never felt before. I can tell you anything, and you won't be shocked. Your undying faith is what keeps the flame of our love alive. 
You and I together, we can make magic. We're a perfect match. 
Thinking of you, fills me with a wonderful feeling. Your love gives me the feeling, that the best is still ahead. You never give up on me, and that's what keeps me going. You are simply irresistible. 
I love you because you bring the best out of me. I love your terrific sense of humor. Every time I look at you, my heart misses a beat. You're the one who holds the key to my heart. You always say what I need to hear. You have taught me the true meaning of love. Love is, what you mean to me - and you mean everything. You are my theme for a dream. I have had the time of my life and I owe it all to you. And, of course, I love your intelligence, 'cause you were smart enough to fall in love with me. 

Love Always,

Dear Honey,

The first time I heard you say the words, "I love you", it was like I have been taken to Cloud 9 and I haven't gone down until now. Right after you uttered those words I asked myself, "Do I love you?", and as I look for the answer, I again asked: have you given me any reasons not to? No. I then realized that I have already fallen in love with you, and yes ... I am so in love with you, Lloyd!
In the past, I had always yearned for someone to love, to cherish and to take good care of - to whom I would share my dreams with and make them come true. I'd always walked around feeling so empty with a hole in my heart that I thought would never get filled... You filled that hole. I think back to how empty my life was without you, and I am so grateful that you are here. I have found in you what it means to "love." I tell you a million times a day, each day that I love you. Although you reciprocate these feelings, I am sure that you have no inkling of the magnitude of exactly what they mean to me. You can do the slightest thing and it warms me. You may not even realize it. Each day has me falling more in love with you. I love you more and more with each passing day. And it eases me to know that as tomorrow approaches, I will love you more than yesterday and tomorrow will be more than today. You are really God's gift to me ... my answered prayer that I will forever cherish in my heart.
You are the most wonderful, kind, compassionate, romantic, smart, sensible, intelligent, talented, kind-hearted, thoughtful, congenial, affectionate, appreciative, loyal, caring, loving, passionate, handsome and an incredibly sexy man with "killer abs" I have ever met and I thank God everyday that you are mine! I love you with my whole existence, my whole life and nothing in this world can take that away! I love you more than I could ever explain. More than I even understand. You touched my heart in ways no one could ever comprehend. 
I hope today turns out to be the day I wished it to be for you. Today, I'd like to give you this little glass that holds the unrelenting memories of my past that shackles my being. I just have to give this to you and I have to do this for myself, for you, and for us. Today, I give my life to you - my heart, my mind, my body and my soul ... I belong to you now.
This may start sounding like a poem ... I don't know. I just wanted to let you know that you are my heart, my everything, and the other half of my soul, that I love you with everything I have and hold. Now, when I look towards the future, you are always pictured there. Maybe, in this lifetime, you will never know how much I love, care and cherish you. Your love gives me the feeling that the best is still ahead. I can't wait to spend forever with you.
Happy Birthday, Honey! I love you so! 

Yours and only yours,

Dear Chris,

I am just writing to show the world how much I love you. From the moment that we met, 'til our last kiss I have always loved you... I have never stopped loving you. You are one of the most remarkable people I've ever known. You're kind, caring, compassionate, loving and incredibly sexy.
When I am with you, I feel alive. You bring to me a happiness no one else has before. You bring to me a love I have never known before. I could not imagine what my life would be like without you. I know that I don't want to even imagine. You have touched my heart in ways no one could ever comprehend. I love being with you and I want to spend the rest of my life with you. My caveman, my sexy monster, there is nothing on this Earth that I could ever give you that would ever come close to how I feel about you. I want to be with you for the rest of your life, and I hope you feel the same. If only you knew how much I want to stay in your life.
Is it wrong to be so young, yet feel so strong about you? I do not know what love is. But if it means caring for you, respecting you, believing in you and putting your happiness above my own, then I am in love. This is not lust or a silly crush... I really do love you. The past year and a half we have spent together have been incredibly romantic. I hope that there are more great times to come. I love you, Cave.... 

Love always,


I will be writing my own love letter tomorrow...
