Blog Feature!

Happy Wednesday!! Half way through the week everyone!

Today is a pretty exciting day for me! {AV} over on {long distance loving} is featuring me today in  her weekly series {distance makes the heart grow fonder}. She features a couple every week who have gone/are going through a long distance relationship.

It's a pretty cool series so you should definitely check it out. This week it's about me and my man's successful long distance relationship throughout my undergraduate time.

Now onto, today's post! Here is another pre-purposing themed post. If you are on Pinterest you've probably seen these a bit but I am really loving these fun ideas to use PAINT CHIPS with. I'm pretty much obsessed!

And best part? They are free!! Just go to your Home Depot, Lowe's, whatever home improvement store you have and stock up!! Here are some of my favorites!

I seriously can't wait until Winter Break so I can make a ton of Christmas colored garlands for the house!! So cheap and easy to decorate with!

And how cool is the one in the picture frame?! It totally looks like it could be a painting! Anyone loving these like me? The table is another favorite of mine! It's such an easy way to spruce up a boring coffee table!

Sorry for Slacking!!

Hello again!! I'm sorry for being gone so long! These past few weeks have flown by being sick and having midterms, midterms, and more midterms. And on top of those my boyfriend got an absess in his throat the day before my biggest midterm! Great timing, right?

Thankfully he is better and the midterms are finally done!! This picture sums up how I've been feeling the past weeks....OVERWHELMED!

Now that I'm back, I'll pick up with one of my favorite posts of the week! Oh How Pinteresting Wednesdays!

Here are some of my favorite pins lately! A combo of humor and fashion! Enjoy!

First off I want to thank everyone who sent me warm wishes for me and my boyfriend's anniversary on Friday! Your comments truly made me smile so thank you :)

When I got home from school I was welcomed with these beauties!
I've never seen such big roses! He definitely scored some brownie points and I was not expecting any gifts at all(we agreed no gifts) but I'll always accept flowers. :)

Since I was home earlier than I had planned we were able to go for a 4 mile run together which was great. He is the best running buddy. Not the typical thing most people do on an anniversary but hey it works for us.

Next we headed to dinner at Duke's Huntington Beach and it did NOT disappoint. I don't really like fish but I will eat Duke's fish. Everything there is good so you won't lose!
Fried Calamari=YUM!!
His Mai Tai and my "Tropical Itch" They were very tasty and very strong!
My parm crusted Opah! It's a very mild fish and is delicious!
His barramundi. It was a special and was a-maz-ing!
Of course, the HULA PIE! There's a coupon on the website for a free one!
I'm not even exaggerating the food was so good! Pricey but well worth it for an anniversary! And that Hula heaven! It was a great anniversary night.

The rest of my weekend was spent studying anatomy for my first grad school midterm which was yesterday and why I didn't post. Over all I think it went well so I'm hoping for a good grade. :)

And for those of you who were wondering, no ring yet. I'm expecting one for a while and probably would have screamed if he proposed on Friday so I'm not disappointed :-p.

And speaking of engagements! My cousin got engaged on Sunday!! Yayyyy! I have yet to see a good picture of the ring or meet her fiance(that's weird to say lol) but from what I've heard from her parents he is a really good guy. They are thinking of waiting until 2013 for the wedding but I say hurry up!! I don't want to wait that long for her to get married!

Until tomorrow I'll leave you with this....
Sorry, couldn't help it. Had to share! 0:-)

6 Years and Friday's Fancies!

TGIF Everyone!!

Today is a very special day for me because it is my 6th year anniversary with my boyfriend! Yup 6 years! I can't really believe it either. We've been dating since high school and all through college.
back in high school
So after school we are going out to dinner at Duke's Huntington Beach. Dukes is a really nice restaurant which we both went to in Honolulu a year ago and loved it so we are going to try one closer. Of course we'd much rather go to Hawaii but we'll have to wait on that one :-p
I really can't image my life without him and love the relationship that we have made and can't wait to see what our future together holds. Hopefully a ring soon... **cough cough**

So in honor of our date night tonight, my Friday's Fancies outfit linking up with {av} from {longdistanceloving} is based off of what kind of outfit I wish I had in my wardrobe.
happy Anniversary

I know this outfit is more of a summer outfit but the weather has been nice in Orange County this week so this will do! And the restaurant is on the beach so I'm trying to channel the island theme since I'll be Hawaii. lol.

The outfit puts together one of my favorite color combos and I love the shoes. I do wish I found a suitable belt for the outfit but none that I saw on Polyvore was a perfect fit to me.

What are you all up to this weekend?! Any specially plans?

Pins: Style Envy

This weeks collection of pins actually have a theme for once! Yay and it's about Style!

Some people just have it! They can effortlessly throw something together and look amazing while if I tried the same thing I'd look like frumpty-dumpty!

Here are some inspiring pictures of the style I wish I could emulate(successfully).

Anyone feel the same way? What kind of style do you wish you could pull off?

If you have this coveted style, what's your secret?!

Hi everyone! I can't believe I missed Friday's Fancies last week! :( I totally put off writing a paper that was due Friday so unfortunately my favorite post of the week got neglected. I hope you all can forgive me.

Since being in school I've been missing out on some vary important things!
 -Reading all of your blog's posts. I feel so deprived.
-Biggest Loser!

I'm still so upset that school work got in the way of watching the Biggest Loser Premiere last week. Anyone addicted to that show like me?! Hopefully I can watch it this week but I have my first midterm coming up so we will see...

-SHOPPING(and spending money)!!
I really do miss shopping and being able to spend money on things I want. I don't really consider buying scalpels for anatomy lab very fun.

If I was working and able to spend money on things here is a list of things on my wish list at the moment.
1. None of you should be surprised that something from Lululemon is on my list. I really really want a Scuba hoodie because it's getting colder and they are so comfortable. I bought a Define jacket before school and have been loving it so next thing is a heavier jacket for winter and the freezing classrooms.
2. I really want some good looking, classy rain-boots. When it rains I always seem to look like a bum with no style(or a mirror) when it rains during school I think it's because I don't have rainboots that are versatile. When I saw these Hunter Boots from Nordstrom I knew I'd love them. Now I want them. And still can't buy them.
3. Yes, I'm lame. I want a new backpack to fit a bunch of stuff in. Dakine has some really nice ones, including some that fit a computer in. I don't take my computer to school right now because my current backpack won't fit it.
4. I posted about this watch about a week ago and still can't get it off my mind. I'm really hoping Santa thinks I've been a good to girl so I can have this beauty in my stocking...then on my wrist.
5. Don't laugh but I wish I could afford to buy Starbucks often and even second guess it like I used to. I decided that I deserve to treat myself to one a week on a day when I really need it like Thursday or Friday. The on campus Starbucks is super expensive too! What the heck?!

Did you have a good weekend? Anything on your wish list?!

Look up!


Today I'm posting about something that isn't really talked about often, that I've noticed when it comes to home design and that's the ceiling. A well done ceiling can make a room. Here are some great ones!

I know when I have my own home I want high ceilings because it makes the place look for gracious and less cramped.

What's your take on ceilings?
