Bring.It.On

Only a couple more days of work and then it's beach time...but there is something else going on this weekend, what is it?? Oh yeah, it's football time in Tennessee!

I know it's only Wednesday but this weekend AND THE BEACH are right around the corner and I cannot focus on anything else.

To-Go Meals...

Yesterday was the third day I have gone out to eat for dinner...THIRD! I seem to have a problem staying at home and cooking in my own little kitchen so apparently I am taking a foodie tour of all my favorite restaurants in town. I am gonna try and contain myself and eat a well balanced meal tonight at the casa-does a sandwich and chips count? Seriously, does it?

VMA Favs!

Who else watched the VMAs last night?? My top 5 favorite moments:

1. Beyonce showing off her baby bump on the black carpet and then taking her jacket off after her performance and rubbing her belly while proud papa Jay-Z looked on.

2. Adele's amazing voice with only a piano to accompany her.

3. Lady Gaga opening the show dressed as a dude and chain smoking on stage.

4. Chris Brown-cool dancing but SO obvious you were not really singing.

5. Nicki Minaj's outfit...ice cream necklace, leg warmers, tutu skirt, pink and yellow hair (what the heck was she thinking)

What I Got This Week

I don't know if it was because I didn't get to go to H&M or what, but I have been surfing the web this week like my life depended on it. Here's the goods that I got-

1. A fiery red lipstick to add to my collection. I bought the Absolute Rouge color.

2. Ten sultry eyeshadows in the best mix and match nude colors.

3. Stackable rings that won me over at first glance. Seriously...

4. I hopped aboard the men's style gold watch trend and purchased this one for cheap.

5. A classic beige cardigan with trendy lace decorative detailing.

Pinspiration...

I have been adding and adding fabulous outfit ideas to my fashion board on Pinterest and finally decided to take action and actually copy one...with my own spin of course.

Here is the outfit that I pinned and my take on it below! Check out my other boards on Pinterest here...

LBD

Why hello cute and comfy dress...and by comfy I mean it has an elastic waist that I just didn't have the heart to define with a belt on top of it. Less is more sometimes, right?

I seriously bought this dress a couple of weeks ago and for the life of me-I cannot remember where I got it. That settles it, I am getting old! I am just thankful I remembered to put ON a dress this morning...geez.

Plans Change...

Well, I didn't end up getting to go visit my friend (or H&M) over the weekend. I was pretty bummed out but everything happens for a reason and another trip is already in the works so hopefully we can try again really soon.

I wasn't feeling particularly upbeat after we decided to stay in town but I got dressed to go to happy hour and dinner and snapped some pics for you.

Don't forget to enter the Stella & Dot giveaway!!!

What I Got This Week

While I have not bought much of anything this week (got a mani and some magazines and that's pretty much it) I will totally make up for that tomorrow because I am going on a road trip!

I am going to visit one of my besties at her new home in Durham, NC. The shopping is supposed to be incredible so I am super excited and even more so to visit H&M in Raleigh because I have not stepped foot inside one of those stores since 2009. It's so sad we don't have one where I live but I plan on making up for it don't you worry!

In case you missed it I am doing a Stella & Dot giveaway so please click here for your chance to enter.

Work OR Noah's Ark

Wow, yesterday was the longest work day of my life! I am not even being a drama queen either...the patients were endless and came in bulk, kindda like Noah's Ark except instead of saving animals from the Great Flood we were giving people the gift of sight.

I clearly work at a LASIK facility for those of you wondering what bizarre career I have gotten myself into.
