all by myself!!!

hi everyone, happy st. patty's day!
so i finally got a chance to use the new equipment i got for my home studio and this is my very first stone setting i have done all by myself! no teacher around to ask for help. i am so proud of myself. it was really easy. easier than i feel like it is sometimes at class. maybe i'm just more comfortable going solo. but i think it turned out really cool! it's a druzy agate set in sterling silver that is oxidized. i can't wait to make more! i have so many ideas. :)

i've been sick since last friday and today i am just starting to human again. i have heard that so many people are sick right now. hope you are all staying healthy! i'm downing this fizzy vitamin C drinks all day. you can buy little packs of powdered vit C and they are 1000 mg and taste pretty good. i got tangerine flavor and it tastes like watered down tang. i love tang! tonight i am going over to a friends and we are going to make shepards pie and make pretty green drinks. i will actually be putting on makeup and wearing clothes other than pj's for the first time since last friday! haha
hope you are having a great day...do you have any fun st. patty's plans?OH don't forget to enter the GIVEAWAY if you haven't already. i'll be picking a winner on friday!



so i did a little online shopping. i may or may not have overdone it a tad. but i bought everything from forever21 and it was SO cheap! i got a lot of great deals. i love that place for cheap trendy clothes. how do you think i did? i might need to go to stripes anonymous hahaa! i really try to find other prints i like but i rarely do unless it's from a more expensive store. anyway, i can't wait to wear my new clothes. i don't shop a ton so i am super excited!!!


oh, zooey!

the new She & Him video is adorable, check it out!also, if you haven't entered the GIVEAWAY, you still have until the 19th.


GIVEAWAY!!! (closed)

hi! so today i am doing a giveaway. the winner will receive ONE of the two items. so you must tell me which item you would like to win.

1. first item is a Lydia hoodie, size small. a few months ago chris and i went to see Lydia play....they are one of my very favorite bands. we ended up meeting them afterward and they were so nice to let us rummage through their merch trailer and pick out whatever we wanted! i picked a bunch of tees and this hoodie. unfortunately, there was not a medium and the length of the arms on the small is too short for me. (i'm really long limbed!) and it so cute, it needs to be worn! it's charcoal gray with teal/aqua and blues. the inside is really soft too.

2. the second item is a pair of jeans i bought from forever 21 online. their sizes are SO hard to figure out. i need to realize i cannot buy jeans online. anyway, they are too big for me and i already took the tags off so i can't return them. so i think you need to wear them if they are your size! they are super cute. the size is 30. i would say they are about a size 9-10 ish? i usually wear between a 7 and a 9 in junior sizes anyway. and the waist/hip/butt area on these is just a tad too big. they are really stretchy too. the inseam is 33". so they are long.

okay, so what you need to do is leave me a comment stating which item you would like to win. extra entries will be given if you tweet or blog about the giveaway. leave separate comments if you do this otherwise it will not count. and you must be a follower on my blog. that's it... good luck!!!

i will draw a winner friday, march 19th.

i'm wearing one of the lydia shirts i snagged in this pic below. they were really sweet by the way! if you have never checked them out, i recommend it! happy saturday :)
