 I was on the hunt for big flares jeans and luckily I found these jeans 
for a steal at $25 via Tjmaxx. I cannot be any more happier with this purchase, I feel like I won the lottery!

Happy Tuesday!

life lately

Cannoli cupcake // Marley & me // Panera's chai tea // Spring nails // Me // Fortune cookie

ae jeggings // thirfted blouse // shoes from ebay // bracelets: handmade, camden

It has been so gloomy and cold lately. Where did you go Spring? My belief is the perfect way to
brighten up your mood is to wear bright colors, and I did just that well at least in terms of 
accessories! I hope to be back on a regular schedule of posting. 

Have a lovely Thursday!

Recipe: Pho

Here is a Pho reciepe that I tried earlier this week.

Ingredients:
4 stalks of baby bok choy
2 cloves of garlic {minced}
1 tsp. grated ginger
1 jalapeno {minced}
1/4 cup of green onions
 2 tbsp. Sesame Oil
2 tbsp. Rice Vinegar
2 tbsp. Soy Sauce
6 cups vegetable broth
1 pound of Udon noodles
Salt to taste

{optional}
cilantro, sprouts, and siracha to garnish


Directions:

To make the broth, heat a large pot over medium-high heat. Add garlic, ginger, bok choy, and salt stirring occasionally for 5 minutes. Next add the jalapeno and green onions. Cook for another 2 minutes. Add the vegetable broth then turn the heat to medium-low, and let simmer for 5 minutes. In the mean time cook the noodles, strain, and put aside.

Next add the rice vinegar, soy sauce, and sircha (optional). Let simmer for another 2 minutes. Finally add in the noodles and finish cooking. Garnish with cilantro and sprouts.
Serves 4 to 6 people.

fill in the blank Friday

My favorite color is: blue blue blue 
My home decor color palette includes: clean lines neutral colors with subtle color and unique pieces
If you were to look in my closet most of the colors you'd see would be: black, white, and 
blue. However, I'm trying to be experimental with my color choices. 
My favorite way to waste time is: spending endless hours on youtube and pinterest.   
Right now I could really go for: a warm breeze, crystal clear blue water, a sandy beach, 
and a strawberry margarita!
This weekend I will be: catching up on sleep, working on cover letters, making jewelry, 
painting my nails, and cuddling with my kitty :)


These pictures are from last May. These are probably the first few pictures I took of an outfit. Yes, those are Twizzlers {candy} on my left wrist. I hope you have a great weekend!

old navy boots | jcpenny jeans | forever 21 shirt, blazer, bag | bracelet from camden 

Happy Hump Day!
This week has been a drag. I feel so sleep deprived, and can't wait to 
catch up on sleep this weekend. I found a recipe for kale chips that I'm 
trying tonight. Thanks Pinterest! On a bright note, can you believe these 
jeans were only $13? I initially bought them to wear with boots in the 
winter, but they work great as ankle grazers too!

These are few items I picked up recently. I've become such a DIY junkie, its a great way to vamp
up your closet! Click {here} for a great DIY collar tutorial. I'm following my passion for creativity by 
hand making jewelry. I get inspired from everyday things, and its another form of expression.

into the wild

Hi everyone! I hope you had a great Easter Sunday! I apologize for being so m.i.a. I spend the weekend in the outdoors,
taking in the scenery and fresh air. It was refreshing, and cleared my head.

And just because..a shot of my nails :)
