If I had all the money in the world..

Curiouser and curiouser!

Because I am a huge fan of anything bright, colorful, or shiny, I am super stoked for the new Alice in Wonderland (not to mention the delicious fantastic actor Johnny Depp).  And since I have been a bum about putting up my first outfit post, here are some of my favorite pictures from the Alice in Waterland photoshoot. 

And some random Alice in Wonderland images. 


This one just looks dirty haha

Ahhhh this movie makes me incredibly happy..

Goodnight World!!

A look inside

As I promised in my first post, here are the pics of  inside my closets.  Yea I said closets.  Out of the 4 closets that we have in this house, i have taken over 3 of them, with my shoe overflow going into the laundry/dog room.  Without further interuption, here are the pictures.. get excited!!

This is the closet that is in the bedroom.  I have a rod that hangs down below the rod that was originally in there.  Over the door I have my scarves, hats, and bandanas.  Up on the top shelf are the jeans that I wear on a regular basis and some shoes.  There are also a few pairs of shoes on the ground that you can't see from these pics. 
The top rod is divided with dresses on the left side and long sleeves and blazers on the right.  The bottom rod has my zip up track style jackets, short sleeve tops, and tank tops. 

This is the closet in our office/my getting ready room/library/alteration station.  This one is divided into work and professional style clothes on the left and going out/party dresses, tops and skirts on the right.  In the middle there are more jeans and pants along with a cool circle hanger where all my belts are.  The top shelf has as many boots as I could fit.  Underneath the clothes there are two shelving units, one has tshirts divided into different categories and the other has bottoms (capris, shorts, and skirts).  And of course, in any spare space there are shoes.      
On the back of the door I hang purses and beside the closet is where I have all of my jewelry and my "getting ready station."  Special thanks to the hubster for allowing me to paint one wall pink!

This is the closet in the living room that has, you guessed it, more shoes.  The hubs has one shoe hanger and I have taken over the rest with my jackets  and the other shoe hanger is mine.  The top shelf has a container full of more scarves and gloves.

And this, as you can tell, is my shoe over flow.  We also keep all the other random odds and ends like board games, and doggie accessories in this area.

Well, I hope to one day do a video post of all of this stuff, but for now I hope you enjoyed my picture tour!!  I'm off to get ready for school!

Goodnight World!!


I do solemnly swear...

Because it was so gloom all day I wasn't able to take good pics of my closets.  SOOO, instead I have decided to make an oath for myself and this blog.

1.  I will not buy anything frivolous when it comes to things like makeup, clothes, and shoes.  I have PLENTY of all of the above categories and need to start using what I have instead of lusting after all the latest and greatest.  This will put my creativity to the test..... and I, for one, am very excited about it. 

2.  I promise to post something to this blog at least every other day.  It is very annoying to me to find a blog that I enjoy reading or looking at and all of a sudden the posts stop.  I check a lot of the blogs I read on a daily basis and it almost makes me sad to not see anything new. 

3.  I will learn new things that pertain to making this blog better.  Videos, layout, picture effects, whatever will make viewing this blog more entertaining and pleasing to the eye.

4.  I will not turn off my comments because of any number of mean comments.  I want to know what everyone thinks, good or bad.

That is good to start out with.  I will no doubt add new "commandments" as this blog grows (I'm crossing my fingers that it does). 

Until tomorrow, I leave you with these craving-inducing images. 

Hey, I know its a little early for Easter, but Wal-Mart has their candy out already!  The Cadbury Mini Eggs are my absolute favorite.  I'm almost through my first bag.  Shhhhh don't tell the hubster!

Goodnight World!!

Yay for new things!!!

This is the first entry of my first blog!!! I am very excited about this, if you couldn't tell from all the exclaimations!!

I have made a promise to myself to not wear anything twice until I have worn everything in my wardrobe at least once (Does that make sense to anyone?). Who knows how long this will take! There are exceptions to this new rule. Things like shoes, jeans, tights, leggings, etc can be worn multiple times. The main idea is to go through all of my tops, skirts, dress pants, and dresses. I have a bad habit of having those "go to" pieces that I wear ALL the time because I know they work.

I'm also going to try to not buy anything new until the new year, January 1 of 2011. We'll see how far this gets before I give into temptation. The reason for this is to try to save more money for a large lump sum payment on a new car. Namely, this one:

My husband is deployed right now so this is as much for him as it is for me. Kind of a way for him to keep up with my life while he is gone.

I hope you enjoy my new blog. I'll start off by posting pics of my closets tomorrow so you can get an idea for the tremendous task ahead of me!

Goodnight World!!
