my cake pop bouquet for boo boo bear <3

so after the blood, sweat and tears that were shed in the process of making this, i've decided that i might just be a trophy wifey instead of an all-around, hands on in the kitchen, soccer mom kinda wifey. that MIGHT just work better. seriously, i could probably burn down the kitchen!

project 1: cake pops made with LOVE

can't see me: studded collar

outfit deets:
studded collar shirt: zara
purse: balenciaga
shoes: christian louboutin

one of those days.. talk a walk. think things through. re-evaluate your decisions, your path.. appreciate everything that's happened in your life and love the people in it. i came across a quote that caught my eye as if it were studded louboutins.. "We feel that letting go is giving up, quitting, and that as we all know is cowardly. But as we grow older we are forced to change our way of thinking. We are forced to realize that letting go means accepting things that cannot be. It means maturing and moving on, no matter how hard you have to fight yourself to do so."

everyone needs to have days like this.. think about things, feel some feelings, deal with them and move on.

ending this blog post with a cute dr. seuss quote: "today you are YOU. that is truer than true. there is NO ONE alive who is youer than YOU!" there's absolutely nothing wrong with being true to yourself. wowow i'm deep today.. thanks to everyone that reads and follows my blog! hope you all enjoy the fashion, pictures, quotes, blurbs and randomness that is me.

song on repeat:

good song.

flashback friday: MPD - New Orleans

my photo diary from New Orleans! some of the sights and food from the Mardi Gras state:

. IMG_1440 IMG_1442 IMG_1438IMG_1445 IMG_1431 page
i tried alligator and escargo and let me tell you.. that will be the first and last time i ever eat those. it wasn't terrible, but totally not my cup of tea. i'll stick with my sushi, in n out and chipotle.

i went to New Orleans for a work conference, but it was a great chance to see what NO was all about. i definitely want to go back next year for Mardi Gras to at least see what that's like!

what i wore:
IMG_1428 IMG_1423 IMG_1425

blazers: urban outfitters & nordstrom
jewelry: h&m, DIY love ring, f21, kaitlyn
flats: tory burch reva

work conference was great, food was delish and atmosphere was a cool, old school feel. all in all, NO was good to me.
