Staying Warm

The cold has officially descended upon us. Walking to class today was one of the most miserable walks I have ever taken. My feet and hands were numb by the time I reached my class. In an effort to stay warm, I have parked myself on my sofa with a blanket and my laptop. Fuzzy socks are also a must. I was wandering the interwebs when I happened upon these photos. There are so precious. They are photos of the real Christopher Robin and of course the inspiration for Pooh and all of the other beloved characters. These books and characters were such a treasure in my childhood and stumbling upon these photos made me so happy.
Speaking of things that make me happy...I found these photos on this site I just discovered called Retronaut. You can find these photos as well as so many more here. Don't forget to stay safe and be warm guys!

Flapper Festivities

On Friday night, I headed out for my friends birthday party, which was 1920's themed. I had such a good time, and I loved dressing up. I have always wanted to go to a 1920's themed party so I was super pumped when she told me about it. I also had so much fun working on my costume. I made the entire thing except my shoes. I also made a couple of other peoples headpieces. I was waiting to post these photos until my friend posted them online, she is a great photographer and I knew her photos would be awesome. I wish I had taken more outfit photos, but you can get a glimpse of my outfit in the photo from behind.

Lazy Days

Yesterday was such a super lazy day. I was planning on running some errands, but my car was having some issues being looked at, so I got to spend my morning loafing around the house. I read some of the new books I ordered, played with my new star lamp, and snuggled up with some tea and a blanket. I also did a bit of sketching for class. It was such a relaxing morning. Later that evening, I went to a 1920's themed party for one of my friends, which I will post more about later.

Neon Puppies

This is one of my favorite new dresses! I love it so much! It simply makes me smile. When you combine that with my new neon bag it really creates a happy outfit. I picked up this bag during the huge Modcloth sale a few weeks ago. I wore this about a week ago, right before I went into this crazy week or so of crazy amounts of homework. I just finished up all of my tests for this week and I am so relieved. I have also been pretty busy working on an excited new project, which I can't wait to share with you!
