Big Bloggy News + A Delightful Dozen

Whew! It’s been a while, but don’t worry, I’ve been busy doing all sorts of prep work for today’s post! No, it hasn’t taken me months to find 12 things that I love! I’ve been hard at work getting ready for the announcement of…

wait for it…

My new blog!

How to be Fancy is all about Fashion, Makeup and inspiration to kick start both. If you’d like to take a peek, you can see the first of MANY posts to come here. I’d love to hear what you think so please leave me loads of comments!

I may still post a few things here that just don’t fit into the overall focus, so if there is something you’d like to see, just let me know!!

I’ll leave you today with some goodness that has gotten me through this week, for sure – the Delightful Dozen!

delightful dozen

#1 Batiste Dry Shampoo. When it’s cold outside, I just can’t bring myself to wash my hair daily, much less use a blowdryer on my static-filled hair.

#2 Origins Cleansing Oil. This stuff is magical on most skintypes. Don’t know how I’ve made it through a winter without this before!

#3 MAC Mega Metal Eyeshadow in Dalliance. If you haven’t seen the Peacocky collection from MAC, do yourself a favor and PLEASE purchase this color. It will instantly open your eyes, I swear!

#4 Free Audio Books Online. This is the find of the year so far for me. I’m currently “reading” Virginia Wolf while I crochet every night. FABULOUS!!

#5 Dolce Vita. I have a serious love affair with all things DV. Finally purchased my first pair (from Hautelook) and they just came this week!

#6 Keurig Coffee Maker. This little dreamboat was a Christmas gift from my parents and I have fallen head over heels. The best gift ever!

#7 Lovely Yarn. I got a whole new batch of yarn in the post to start all of my new knits. So exciting!

#8 This Video by the Noisettes. Heart!

#9 Vintage Dishes. We recently gave away all our incomplete (and now discontinued) wedding dishes in favor of an adorable hodgepodge of vintage pyrex we’ve been collecting!

#10 WARM SOCKS. My feet have been so COLD!!

#11 This little Irish Blog is absolutely wonderful! Please check it out!

#12 Finally, a big thanks to Goodwill for taking my boxes and boxes of…stuff…! And Hooray for a clutter-free house!

xoxo

It’s Raining Brides!

Holy pin curls! This summer flying by faster than a flock of Canadian geese on their way to a Mexican pool party!

On top of working on a super-secret, I-can’t-wait-to-share-it surprise,¬† it seems like every friend I have on the planet is getting married this fall. Which means only one thing, of course. Wedding Showers! And being the crafty friend I am, my little fingers are working their prints off getting these soirees dolled up and ready to party! Here’s a peek at the first DIY shower in line. As you can see, it was all about the monogram! Sadly, I don’t have any pictures of the Bride (and groom who was there for gift opening support). I was on guest table and tissue paper folding duty!


What DIY Projects are you working on this summer?

A Day at the Zoo

Today we spent the afternoon with friends at the zoo! I love the zoo. Even thought it’s only a few miles from our house I haven’t been in almost 8 years! Absurd, considering my love for all things furry and four-legged! Some of my favorites of the day were:

This guy:

His name is Bixby. He’s a goat.

I could watch these guys all day. Quite the entertainers!

And finally, nothing gets cuter than this little doll! This isn’t the actual OKC red panda but my goodness he’s a sweetheart!

What did you do on this lovely Memorial Day?

Pamela and I have both been vendors in a few shows around the Midwest and let me tell you, she’s a sweetheart. Along with her main man, Dylan (a.k.a. Dowdy Studio), these two make a fabulous team!

Nail Goodies

I’ve recently succumbed to an obsession with Japanese¬† nail art – it’s so beautiful and unique. So, after spending hours on eBay searching away, I finally broke down and placed my order. Here is a bit of my new swag! I have more things on the way…I’ll show them off when they arrive!

I tried the tiny dried flowers out last night. They’re a bit difficult to use, but I think they’re pretty cute!

My haul includes: silver and gold nail striping, teeny tiny fimo fruits and a wheel full of the ittiest dried flowers.

Renegade Favorite: Kevin Tong

When the boy and I laid eyes on this vendor’s designs, we knew we’d be taking one home with us. Kevin Tong is a freelance illustrator based out of Los Angeles – and he’s major. At first we noticed his humble demeanor but one look at his art and you’ll see that this fellow knows his stuff. Check out his blog to find out more and make plans to visit Kevin at an upcoming show!

We couldn’t pass up the Cake poster, but Kevin very kindly let us choose another one to take as well (we went for a mystery pack that included the Beck print)!
