Neon hues are the "it" thing this spring. And after all the nude and neutrals I've been seeing the last few seasons, these pops of color are definitely refreshing. My favorite thing about them? You can incorporate them anywhere from your head to your toes.
I'm more than obsessed.

I've decided to ease the trend in on my nails. Because in my neck of the woods it is still very chilly, somedays...
And that reminds me-
Is your weather bipolar lately?! 
Saturday is was 62 degrees here. Pretty as anything. Sunday, snow!
I know... Right?

Anyway. Here are two of my favorite neon polishes that I've been loving:
(Left to right) Helena, a briiight purple and Hayden, a gorgeous neon peachy hue from Julep.
Oh, and by the way... Have you ever heard of the Julep Maven program?
It's bottom-line amazing. You get little boxes of goodies sent to your door monthly, and the best part (for me at least) is that there is no contract. They send you an e-mail preview of what you will be getting... Don't like it? Reply and tell them! They don't send it and you don't pay! I love.
You can check them out {here}
I digress... ;)

Here are some other awesome ways to put some neon pop in your wardrobe--

Five Things

{the making of some delish sugar cookies}

I feel like I've accomplished close to nothing this week, besides making cookies and watch tv. I even skipped a day of school... but I've jumped back into blogging, full speed. That makes up for it, right?! I guess it's because I'm living for the weekend, Sunday to be exact. I spent Valentine's eating Zaxby's with my love and he gave me some gorgeous silver earrings and a Tervis tumbler {which is hopefully arriving today!!} But... Logan and I are doing something special for Valentine's day this Sunday afternoon, and I've been basically counting down the hours since I found out he was doing the planning. I can't wait to see what he has planned for us. What are you doing this weekend?

Roses are red.
Your eyes are blue.
This year is three.
Last year was two.
Although I think you know,
Or at least I hope you do,
Nothing in this crazy world
Could keep me from lovin' you!

I love you Logan!!
{and all of my super sweet followers}
Happy Valentine's Day! <3

W2W: Valentine's Day❤

I'm always struggling to figure out what to wear on date night. So, of course, Valentine's day is scaring me to death, this year. I have no idea what to wear!
"What am I going to wear? How am I going to do my hair? I need to find a good makeup tutorial on Youtube... What the heck am I going to wear?!"
I've been dating my valentine for over 2 and a half years and I still get so nervous and have these thoughts before I go on dates with him!
Like butterflies in my tummy, nervous... Crazy-- I know.
Anyway, here are some ideas for v-day that I created trying to use some of the most fab trends for this spring. 


I'm not even going to lie about this one... When I first saw the color-blocking thing... I H.A.T.E.D it! But it's really growing on me! I actually plan on wearing an outfit along the lines of this trend this week. The name of the game is easy- pick a bright hue (or two) and rock it! This article really helped me "get" the trend. And... Here are some celebs that are rocking the CB... (Ms. Stone's ensamble was the inspriation of this outfit, infact!)


Okay, although I'm obsessed with this color lately... I just can't pull it off! I guess it's because my skin is so pale from the lack of sun the winter brings, but I don't know. Hopefully you'll be able to shine in this number! Celebs like Kim Kardashian, Blake Lively, and Taylor Swift demonstrate other ways to wear our LRD's here...

And last, but definitely not least.
Oh. Em. Gee.
This one is definitely my fav. I'm a sucker for some good lace and flats... and that ring?! I'm also a huge fan of leather and lace.
Anyway, lace is all over the runway for spring/summer 2012...
Tuesday is the perfect time to wear the girly, romantic trend. I mean heck, it's the day of romance (or Hallmark card scandals, as Logan says...)

Happy {early}Valentine's day everyone!
Hope everyone gets to spend the day with the people they love the most.

Oh yeah, and then this thing happened last week. It's called the Superbowl. Ever heard of it? Logan and I spent the game at the youth party at church. Instead of watching the commercials, the kids made commercials and we watched them. TOO much. I was so do do fun.

And then, at the beginning of the month, I threw a surprise party for my hilarious best friend, Jillian. We dressed up, went to the old city, and ate some sushi. Oh, and took some awesome pictures.
