All dressed up with no where to go

How was your weekend? Mine was pretty good, but full gaffs. First, I drank entirely too much coffee on Saturday, then after getting home from babysitting I couldn't get to sleep until after 2 am. Fail. I was supposed to take a practice LSAT Sunday morning. Well. 2:45 am rolls around. I still wasn't quite asleep when heard the door open and close downstairs. My roommate KJ was out and about, nothing to be concerned about, so I rolled over and went back to sleep. Then some time later I turned over and opened my eyes. 

There was an unknown man standing above me. Just staring at me. I swear to god. 

I initially thought it was a dream, but no. There was definitely a man there. I don't entirely remember what I said. I didn't scream or jump or any "normal" reaction. No. I was so taken a back I didn't know what to do. I kind of assumed that KJ may have brought home a gentleman friend and by the time I realized what happened I thought running out would have ruined "the mood," so I stayed put. 

Well I get a text about 90 seconds later from KJ apologizing. Apparently this guy was her drunk married  co-worker who also happens to live in our neighborhood so they were simply sharing a cab, until he invited himself in. At 3:00 am. Needless to say, he was asked to leave shortly there after. It made for quite the interesting morning. Let. Me. Tell. You. 

Sunday was once again filled with LSAT Studying. 18 days folks. But I was so excited to head over to the Dew Drop Swap as I mentioned to y'all on friday. KJ was tagging along so we got ready. Full hair and makeup because lord knows you have to look good when you run into the fashionable bloggerati of the District. Well. We were running late. Shocker. With 5 minutes to spare make it to the building to head upstairs. Once we arrive the place was not quite as hopping as we expected. Nope. Not a sole in sight actually. That's when we realized the swap was on SATURDAY. Another fail on my part. 

Thankfully we redeemed the outing with pumpkin spice lattes. (PS if you're counting calories check out this post from Samantha's Brewed Awakening

So. What is a girl to do when she's all dressed up with no fashionable venues to frequent? Take pictures of herself. Duh.

I saw this tutorial on pinterest the other night and had to try it. I over did it on the teasing a bit, but I'm kind of obsessed!

Pink and Gold Mani--- also inspired by pinterest here

That's it for today. Hopefully the rest of the week will be slightly less eventful. Though I did appreciate the comic relief. LSAT nightmares have been increasing in frequency of late, so it was a good change of pace.

Color Crush: Emerald Green

My go to color is blue. Blonde hair, blue eyes, fair skin. No matter the shade, I look great in blue.  But the other day I saw this dress on pinterest, and OMG I feel in love. 

I'm now crushing over this gorgeous emerald green color. With fall approaching and beautiful jeweled tones making more and more appearances in stores I am going to be investing in emerald. Here are a few more of my emerald pinterest finds.  

What color are you crushing on right now?

{Cocktail Friday}

First off, y'all need to know something about me. I am a girl who loves to sleep. I have a hard time functioning on less that 8 hours, my body just refuses to get up. Well, a surprisingly hectic work week, in combination with this LSAT class has suddenly sucked the hours from the day.
I'm going to be a very busy girl until October 4.
Thursday I woke up at 6:30 (I normally get up at 7:45) was at work by 8. Worked straight through until 6. Came home. Ate dinner while watching 15 minutes of the Kardashians, then did LSAT homework until class started at 7:30. Class finally ended 11:45 or so. This has been 4 days of this now. WTF. I don't know how people do it... though I suppose if I want to go to law school I better figure it out fast.

This story is just telling the tale that I am a). too tired to actually make up a drink for you (Pinterest to the rescue though); and b). in desperate need of several cocktails. Thankfully it's Friday. I plan on stopping by Harris Teeter on my drive home tonight. Picking up a bottle of something alcoholic and bubbly, maybe a redbox movie and probably a frozen pizza. I will then retreat to my couch where I will drink the bubbly beverage (adding in hard liquor of course), eat said pizza and zone out to some crap movie. Then retreat to my bed around 9. Put on the sleeping mask to block all possible light and CRANK UP the noise machine. Seriously. Can't think of a better night after the week I've had. 

Wow... incoherent ranting. I promise I try to avoid these, but I foresee the frequency increasing around these parts in the coming weeks. Bare with me :)

Here are some pretty pictures with links to superior bloggers with wonderful cocktail recipes that you should really try. I'm sure I'll be trying a few myself this weekend.

Raspberry Mint Mojitos
Bada Bing

Cucumber Rosemary Gin and Tonic 

Mint Lemon Sorbet and Champagne

Also, I have a fun surprise... Since I'm getting DANGEROUSLY CLOSE to 100 GFC followers, I have a great giveaway starting on Monday. Here a sneak peak 

Have a fabulous and sleep filled weekend y'all!

Oh How Pinteresting

I'm a huge fan of reading everyone's "Oh How Pinteresting" posts on Wednesdays, but I've never actually joined the link up. I know. I'm pretty much the only one. So, today I'm joining Michelle and the rest of the universe and linking up for...

I've been on a hunt for motivation lately. Here are a few of my favorites.

This is my horoscope. 

After you make major life decisions, do you ever get confirmations from the universe? Things out of the ordinary go your way? Well that has been the story of my life for the last two days.  I have a HUGE project that ends in a constituent lobby day on August 1. crazy. And I'm making decisions about the next step...

So, I have an announcement. I have decided to take the LSAT. yes. I am actually pretty excited about it, and getting the ball rolling on heading back to school at some point in the next few years. Hopefully between still working full time, and now taking an LSAT class 12 hours a week plus 24 hours of homework and practice, I will still find time to keep up the blog. I promise y'all I will do my best, but the LSAT is October 4th, so I maybe a little MIA, or the posts may not be their usual awesomeness until then. But, I still love you, and I will be back. In the meantime, lets keep the pinteresting going. 

all photos are linked on my pinterest page.

Happy Hump Day Y'all

Hair Love

I'm in a bit of a hair rut lately. I've been too lazy in the mornings to do much of anything beyond a top knot (which I love, but isn't the most professional look in the world). I am just lacking the motivation to pick up the blow dryer or the curling iron in the mornings. 

So for some inspiration I took to pinterest (where else) and found some exciting new style options

But I love me some beachy summery waves. 

What could be prettier? I found this recipe for homemade sea spray, and I'm totally trying it once I get home from Puerto Rico. I'll let you know if my thin fine hair can stand this kind of styling.

P.S. I think I'm depressed for my hair, because come mid may in DC the humidity around here ramps up like nobody's business. I think it's worse than Georgia. MEANING my hair wont hold the curls I work on so hard. I mean really, they generally fall out by the time I get to work.
