Oh, Christmas tree… you didn’t stand a chance against the dogs

Posted by on Dec 17, 2013

It happened. I remember getting in trouble for doing something similar when I was a child, with the help of my sister. Now, our two dogs managed to accomplish the same task after only having two years of Christmases. They knocked down the Christmas tree.

I had just prepared myself lunch and was walking from the kitchen through the living room to the office. I couldn’t believe what I saw. The two had been playing like they normally do, but they’ve been getting a bit rougher each time. (Penny’s starting to prove to G that she’s a strong girl and that she can take him.) Needless to say, after scolding them I put them in their crates* and made them listen to me huff and puff while I tried to put the tree together.


Unfortunately, the tree has been a bit wobbly since we acquired it from my aunt. I think she may have given us the wrong stand, or maybe because it’s so old it just doesn’t work properly… I’m not sure, but I wondered if it would have a chance next to these two puppies, and clearly it didn’t. I guess because the tree has already been up for two weeks and remained tall and proud, that it would be able to stand the entire season. Obviously I was wrong.

So today will not be a home reveal as I had previously planned (there will be one this holiday season, however). Those darn puppies, why are they so cute when they’re sleeping?

An Audrey Hepburn Holiday : Get Inspired

Posted by on Dec 14, 2013

I know I am not the only one who looks at Audrey Hepburn as a style icon, right? She is just so elegant, classy, yet has a healthy sex appeal to her. I’ve dressed as her for Halloween so that I can pretend I’m her. Because it’s not just the way she dresses that I adore, but the confidence she has. She defines beauty in, oh, so many ways.

I’m also pretty sure I’m not the only one trying to figure out what to wear for the holiday events and parties that seem to be everywhere. I want to make sure I’m elegant and classy and… all things Audrey Hepburn, now that I think of it. She’s got it all.

So in honor of Audrey and this holiday season I am going to be sharing some modern approaches to quite a few of Audrey’s past outfits. They will be sprinkled here and for the next few weeks, with inspirations, collections, and shopping ideas. I’m so excited to share this with you! In the meantime, here are a few Audrey styles to inspire you!

Oh, the weather outside is frightful… but make sure you go outside anyways

Posted by on Dec 11, 2013

In the midst of the season is it often easy to forget to enjoy the simple things in life. It is hard to look at the bright side of things, when sometimes all we see is darkness. Between the holidays, the change of weather, health, jobs, money, and oh, so much more, we need to enjoy the small things now, more than ever.

It is a constant reminder I have to tell myself multiple times. Don’t worry, I know I’m not the only one, which means you aren’t too. So today, when I was feeling down after applying to way too many jobs to name and my skin is finally starting to heal but still isn’t looking pleasant, I decided to accept my boyfriend’s offer to step outside with him and watch the dogs play. Unfortunately they didn’t want to play, but it was a nice breath of fresh (and cold air) that woke me up from the depression of today and helped me regain my confidence.



Sometimes the simple things are all you need. A roof. (Though not simple, but taken for granted quite often.) Your dogs. Your boyfriend or companion. Some snow to wake you up.

What simple things do you need in life?

Edit @ 11:37pm Two hours after taking the dogs out, we went outside and saw that it had snowed everywhere. As my boyfriend said multiple times, “It came out of nowhere.” And it turned out to be a beautiful night.
