Carefree Easy Style

12 Apr

Have you noticed all the buzz about Cochella? Yeah, well that my friends is becasue it’s going down this weekend and the next! If you are a lucky duck who happens to be attending the festivities, dance a jig to a few songs for me! I’ll be with you in spirit lol!

I absolutely LOVE the “I didn’t try at all, but I  still manage to look super hip” style that Cochella brings out in people! Of course there are those who will take it to bazare extremes, (that is  just part of the festivities I believe) but I am talking about the ladies like these celebs below, whose style is super cool, but like they don’t give a rip at the same time 😉 Its all about the tassles, the feathers, textures, and breezy fabric! I would dress like this all the time if the weather  and occasion allowed!

 

  Let Cochella bring out your inner hippy ha ha!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Much Love

Newest Project: a table for the wee one

12 Apr

I Have been wanting to make a little reading / learning corner for my little sweetie-pie. I looked and looked (honestly, I probably could have looked harder lol), and I couldn’t find one gently used. The local thirft stores and craigs list were failing me on this project. I think it is because I had such a specific look in mind. So I just broke down and ordered one to be shipped to the house. I put it together all by myself too! GO ME!! lol

Finnley loves it! I got her a matching bookshelf too, which isn’t as sturdy as the table unfortunately, but it is still very cute in her reading corner!

Much Love to ya,

Amanda

7 Random Facts about Me

1.  Lately I have been turning on Pandora and singing (usually off key) to my 14 month old daughter every morning while I make breakfast … my poor little girl lol. It’s a great way to start my day!

2.  I have always dreamed of being on a WB series (or CW now) like One Tree Hill or 90210..ehhh not gonna happen lol

3.  I LOVE Jesus, He LOVES me! By the way… He LOVES you TOO!

4.  I am a freakishly good hoola-hooper!

5.  I recently had Danish Pancakes with fresh blueberry topping for the first time, and I think they are my new favorite food combo!

6.  Legally Blonde is still my favorite movie… I know, I know,  it’s a little embarrassing.

7.  I think neck braces are hysterical… I realize this may sound cruel, but if I see someone wearing one I can’t help but snicker…Unless the person is in apparent pain at that very moment… (I do have a heart people) 😉
