Mod Cloth Layering!

Hey guys!! I was inspired by the oh so wonderful, www.ModCloth.com (click link to take you directly to their site) to create the perfect layered look! I decided to create something a little more "weekend friendly"....the perfect simple layered look for running errands! I added some fancy pumps to the look which can take the entire outfit up to another level just in case your day leads to coffee dates, lunch, dinner, etc. Wherever you day leads you, your cute little outfit is ready for it! This outfit is super easy to change up for wet or cold days with rain boots or cozy winter boots! Check out more super cute layering pieces from ModCloth right here:

The color scheme is a combination between flirty and fun polka dots, spring pastels and a wintery finish of an army inspired jacket! This outfit touches on lots of different seasons and can be worn almost anytime of the year! The accessories I went for a simple black scheme which solidifies and tones down the entire look! Hope you like it! Enjoy!

Red Shoes!

Hey everyone! Hope you are all having a great Saturday! We were planning on going snowboarding but traffic was so bad we ended up turning around and grabbing breakfast on the way home and ended up having a lazy Sunday on Saturday! It was great and much needed!

Just a really quick little post of an outfit from the other day wearing my amazing blanket scarf! Also, had to show off my new shoes too! I had one of those realizations the other day that I didn't have a good pair of red pumps!? Seemed like a basic that I need to own and I found the perfect pair! Hope you like them! Enjoy!

Bundled Up!

Hey guys! Hope you are all doing well!! Things are busy, busy on my end as usual! Things slowed down a little today though as we had a beautiful snowfall here in Denver and the city was turned into a winter wonderland! I figured it was a perfect chance to bundle up in a super cozy outfit and wear one of my favorite over sized knit sweaters! My little pup was loving it too, Rocky loves the snow! I have to share some pics of him with you guys too! He's a funny little fluff ball! Hope you like it! Enjoy!

Cookie Pops!

Hey guys! So I made a bouquet of cookie pops the other day and had to share the picture with you! Cookie pops are so fun, let's face it...food on a stick is just way more fun to eat! I found the cookie recipe and some great info on how to actually put them together from the wonderful and oh, so talented Sweetapolita! I sadly didn't take any pictures of the process as I wasn't planning on turning it into a post, but it just worked out so well I had to share so I borrowed some of her images to give you the idea of the process! Check out a more detailed and in depth guide to cookie pops from her site right here:

I created my own icing however which has been getting great reviews! It's a simple coconut-lemon icing! I made three very small batches and made them each a different color but the basic recipe for a small batch of it is as follows (double if you are only making one color): 

Coconut - Lemon Icing!
1 cup icing sugar
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1/4-1/2 teaspoon lemon zest (to your taste)
1-2 teaspoons original coconut creamer (I think vanilla flavor would work really well too)!

My recipes are always changing and I keep adding until I get the taste I like, so start with the smaller measure and just keep adding until you get the taste and texture of the icing to where you personally would like it! Hope you like them! Enjoy!

Hey guys! Just a quick little post sharing the blanket scarf I grabbed from Sheinside.com! I am loving it! It's huge, super cozy and has some great fall/winter colors in it that are great to match with! Yesterday was a super grey day, so these photos are a little dull but hopefully you still get the idea of the look! I didn't last long out there either....by the time I was done taking these, I couldn't feel my fingers!! Brrrr! I am so ready for spring to arrive! Anyways, hope you are all having a great day!! Hope this outfit inspires you a little! Enjoy!

Retro Pink!

Hey guys!! Hope you all had a great start to your New Year and your resolutions are going well! My resolution to take over the world in 2015 and totally own it has been a slow start. I'm still in hibernation mode. My apartment is so cold I literally work in my pj's from bed snuggling with my dog everyday! It's awesome and I still get a lot done but it's quite possibly the laziest way to be working! BUT....seriously, my apartment is ridiculously cold. Electric heaters should be illegal. Especially if your rental company does not cover the cost of heat and you have to pay for it out of pocket on top of rent...we spend on average $180 a month to still freeze...ridiculous!! Anyways, there's my rant for the day....now onto regular blog topics!

Back to New years resolutions...what has everyone set out for themselves for this year!? I usually don't make resolutions because let's face it...they last about a month before people give up on them. So this year I decided more realistic things:
1). Read more. I have a ton of books that have piled up over the last that I need to get through!
2). Stay super active. Keep on top of my running routine and make sure I throw in some variety... regular weight training and yoga! 
3). Drink more water! 
4). Promote my little business and really get it going!
5). Somehow manage to get through this next year of working full time, planning a wedding (and actually getting married), working out a ton, traveling, reading, running a very new business and blogging....yikes!! 
With all this going on...this year is going to fly by! I know it!

Anyways...regarding this outfit...after I put it all together I realized I totally look like retro Barbie! 
I am so in love with this jacket!! Such a great price and I love the color! They also have it in a few other colors and I really want it in blue and fuchsia!
I am new to this company too and totally loving their outerwear! Check them out right here:
