Who Inspires You?

I asked this on my twitter page yesterday, Who inspires you in life? In fashion? In love? Someone I can say always inspires me is Jackie Kennedy Onassis. She was a timeless beauty and someone I look up to, to this day. She was the first lady to John F. Kennedy and stood by him as a strong, yet caring wife. I look up to her poise and beauty, but over all her fashion sense. It was classic and timeless. Here are some shots of her in my favorite outfits she wore. Her style and grace will live on forever.

So, who inspires you?

Day of Love....Or not

February 14th, what does it mean to you? If you are hitched, it's probably a day of chocolates, balloons, teddy bears and kisses. If you are single, it is probably the one day in which you cannot get around the fact that you are riding solo. I will be honest with ya'll, usually February 14th is a sign for me to wear black and act like the world doesn't exist. But this year I bought an adorable heart wreath for the front door and I'm embracing this love filled holiday. A good friend of mine who writes the blog Josephine & Mae blogged a post on things we love on Valentines day. I notified her that I would be copying this idea because it was PERFECT for my year of embracing the day of love. So here goes, things that I love that are lovely:

Obviously I love pink and if you click on any of the links, they take you to
I love their website, it's free shipping and returns.
Happy Almost Month of Love!

Popcorn and Movies Galore!

This evening I got the amazing chance to go to the movies with my best friend, my mother. She has been my closest pal for as long as I can remember. We tell eachother everything and life would not be the same without this wonderful role model in my life. We ended up seeing a movie we both have been waiting to see...Little Fockers. Although it got some crappy reviews, I LOVED it. Maybe I'm just a focker fan. But while I was watching the previews I realized just how many movies are out right now that I want to see. Below is my movies to see list, starting with the one we saw this evening!
This movie Just Go With It looks hilarious! I love Adam and Jennifer both and think the two together is going to be a riot!
This hall pass movie looks cheesy, but sometimes I need a good cheesy movie. Def a movie to with a guy best friend to.

I'm usually a horror movie lover, but this movie is like a crazy mix of drama, dance and horror all in one. Black Swan got amazing reviews and I can't wait to see this crazy duo of amazing actresses.

And the movie I'm most excited to see, No String Attached. This looks like a classic movie that is SUCH a date movie. Two of my best friends saw it tonight and I'm totally jeal. What movies are ya'll excited to see this season?

Preciously Preppy

I spent last weekend at a friend's wedding in Brandon, FL and got the chance to spend time with my beautiful cousin and her family during the same visit. I'm sure you all have family that you are closer to than others, my cousin is more like a sister to me. We share everything and she has been a role model for me my whole life. Her and I share similar tastes (she is a pearly, preppy, Lilly loving gal) and both live life for the Lord. Seeing her family grow up has been a joy for me. Her youngest (NG) is about to turn 3 and the only girl in her family. NG is a spitfire and I had time to catch on video just how precious she is. Below is a must watch video of her saying adorable lines and below that is a picture of her and I having a dolly-filled day!

Enjoy little moments with children, even the shortest amount of time
with them can remind us of true innocence.

Graduation has passed...

and now I'm in graduate school. Seems crazy that I will be graduating again in December with my masters. I can't wait to get started in the real world and look forward to many adventures in the next year. I'm hoping to spend a lot of time with friends and family and hopefully go on some beautiful adventures. Here are some pictures from my graduation.
