Things that are symmetrical appeal to me. Meet my Christmas purse. Only considered as such because that's when a received it. Perfectly acceptable for use at all times of the year.


I made St. Patrick's Day cupcakes a day early. Stout cupcakes, with Bailey's frosting. Really rich and flavorful.



It's no secret I'm obsessed with MAC. But I just recently purchased my first MAC brush. And the obsession continues.


Floral print makes my heart sing.



Do you know what happens in your last semester of college? When you're employed at four places at the same time? You lose every last drop of your free time. EVERY LAST DROP. Which is why there was a serious decline in posting.

However, once that degree is obtained, and a normal 40 hr per week type job is acquired, time comes creeping back. In an exceptionally structured sense that I just love. With a bit of waitressing and photography on the side.

One thing I don't love is the decline of the need for anything creative in my current job. Which, of course, lead me right back to blogging. And my picture of the day. This time, it's going to have fewer rules. 5 days a week, instead of 7. I guess that was the only rule, and it's one I'm choosing to change. But two days of freedom is important.

The content will be the usual, food, style related shots, or anything that simply looks pretty. Things that are naturally in my life more than things I search to find, because even though time has crept back, it turns out I never once spent 40 hours a week solely on school. So while some days will be more adventurous than others, most will be about what I experience daily.

So welcome to A Picture A Day :: Part 2!



You know how you have musical artists that you just love? Where you know before their new CD comes out that you're totally going to buy it? I love having that.

I love the thrill of putting a new CD in for the first time, knowing that whatever is on it is most likely going to be new music for me to love. Music that matters more than just making me happy, but lyrics that are going to make me wish I could write that well, and songs that make me think.

Two of my favorite artists just came out with new music, and I'm totally in the new CD phase, where I play the same songs over and over again, learning the words and soaking in the songs.

Go buy yourself a new CD. And listen to it over and over again and fall in love with it. It'll make you happy.



This picture makes me want to entertain. Well, makes me want to have a place to entertain first, and then actually follow through with entertaining. With all my spare time.



Best cookies of your life.


Told you. Obsessed with light through trees.


$2 prop my mom found me at a flea market. I like it. However, it says Captain Morgan on it. Going to have to be strategically placed.
