Everyone knows how much I adore kids clothing, if you don’t just take a look at my Pintrest Page! Go ahead click the link I will wait……..
Ok so of course reason’s to shop for my mini me include, new session, growth spurt and SALE SALE SALE! Does there need to be a reason?! Yes I have to justify my need to bring in humongous bag into the house without the fiancé asking 100 questions as to “what”, “why” and “where are you going with all that!” So I have my justifications in order (take notes new mommies).
So with that being said If you haven’t been over to the channel and seen the latest Haul video’s then check it out below and then check out haul #2 featuring Doll and all her goodies form Old Navy, Target, TJ Maxx and Marshalls!

It’s been raining just about every day this week which leaves me in a rut and grabbing for black and dark colored pieces of clothing to wear to work. I’ve always wondered why when it rains we tend to rear toward darker tones as if the rain just brought us down so much we don’t have the energy to wear color!
On my way into work earlier this week while sitting in traffic and tempted to flip someone I noticed a women walking down the street wearing a beautiful colored dress and some bright hunter boots and chic trench over top and I thought to myself hum that’s a nice way to dress up for the rain!
Now I have fallen victim to the whole “rain boot trend” but now what! You have all these rains boot that you only wear when? It rains on the weekend with your skinnies, what about on your way to work?!
Well these ladies show you that you can wear bright color, look chic in the rain and it does not always have to include skinnies and dark colors when the weather man says “rain for the remainder of the week”

Part the clouds and scream holla lou! We painted! We finally finished! I plan to do a video over on the channel real soon so you all can see so look out for that go and subscribe so you won’t miss out!
Any who, super exhausted to say the least! First and form most I knew going into the whole DIY it would be a challenge! For me, the fiancé and even our relationship. I will say this much want to test your love go and do a home project together if you make it out without throwing a bucket of paint on one another then its L.O.V.E!
We spent Friday night in the Home Depot, half of our time was spent fussing how many stripes to put on the wall and the finance trying to convenience me that he did not need an extendable brush for the celling seeing as how he’s 5’11 (cough). At the end of it all I almost ringed his neck and I am sure he wanted to disappear while caring the 3 gallons of paint to the car!
We started out on the right path, had dinner (fill your bellies before the job) and the got out the ruler, frog tape and got to work. Well about 10 minutes in after I said a few inappropriate words the fiancé came down to check on me and asked what’s wrong!? I told him I couldn’t get the tape straight is it me or is the wall crocket? I hadn’t started drinking my glass of wine just yet so something was WAY OFF to say the least! That’s when we discover that walls are not always flat and not always as straight as they appear and went with one oversized yet clever line down the center!
That Saturday after only having 3 hours of sleep we painted! Armed with Martha Stewarts Precious Metals we went to work and I must say all the nasty comment on Home Depot about this paint is so wrong! Let me tell you where the issue lies, buy their specific roller! The end!
The color came out so beautiful and so smooth and keep in mind this was the first time I’d ever painted any walls so I was very satisfied with the results!
I then spent the remainder of the night painting the closet after the fiancé did the ceiling with his extendable roller! (lol)
I can now sit back and feel so proud of our work, the procrastination has ended and now I am ready to take on my other projects that have been waiting to be completed! Until next time!
What do you all think?

Today is supposed to be the regularly scheduled “Voguefirrmation” but I’ve decided to flip it up a bit! As some of you may know I purchased a home sometime last year, we are just in the mist of actually decorating.
We’ve done the basics you know hung curtains, put down a rug, threw some pillow on the couch and bed, hung some pictures but the more I look around my house the more I want to make it my home!
I live in apartment for 3 years and I always wanted to paint! I love to paint, I’ve painted some works on canvas during my senior year of college as just a extra credit course and that’s when I discovered my love for art on canvas. I enjoyed it so much its relaxing and so carefree, so naturally when I got my first apartment some years ago I felt the need to paint the walls but my landlord in one building told me no, the other building I later moved into and lived for almost 3 years until we got the house told us yes, BUT we would have to repaint once we moved out. It seemed so temporary and a waste of time and money.
Once I moved into my home I had been so conditioned at hearing “no you can’t paint the walls” I looked at my new home with walls covered that lovely yellow color every new home designer is doing and said hum they will do!
Well as I am coming up on being a year in our new home I am sooo over the yellows wall and the need to paint has led to 3 months of figuring out what color to paint our foyer and to create a focus wall in the living room! The fiancé is beyond ready to pull his hair out as I have changed the color 5 times now and changed the ideas of how to paint from stenciling the walls, to a bold one color wall, to now LETS DO STRIPES! (giggle)
Who knew I could be so indecisive, it seems I have commitment issues! (i.e. blog platform switch post a few months ago, don’t judge me)
So we have set a day to make me stop dragging my feet and getting over inspired by Pintrest (thanks created DIY home bloggers of Pintrest) This Saturday we are finally putting paint to the wall and making the house a home with stripes! Color of choose still undecided, but I must pick a color but Saturday or I’m just going to take Doll in Home Depot and let her pick! (Imagine that)
In addition to the foyer and living room wall we are also doing the master walk-in this is what started this snow ball effect of “let’s paint the walls in the house”. The sandy storm uprooted an unknown roofing problem causing water damage in the closet, now the roof is fixed and believe it or not the color for the master was picked and finalized 2 weeks ago!
I don’t know why the foyer and living room is so hard, maybe it’s because that’s the first thing that welcomes you into the home! Any who! Check out all the Pintsrest images that inspired me then check out my boards and follow along for your own inspo!
Leave a comments below on your thoughts on color chooses. It would help! J
