Alright, this is a little different of a Wardrobe Wednesday post... But I wanted to share this awesome pic of my photog buddy Jarrod took this last weekend!

We had a fantastic shoot dispite the 102 heat index... Yeah, there was a lot of sweat involved, but we're willing to look past that for our art!

You see, it was SnowFest 2010 in our town, and we weren't about to miss it!

SnowFest 2010

Seeing these kids out in the snow during June, was just priceless!

There were little girls hunkered down to avoid the snowballs...


Bands with some epic bass players...

Little boys proving boy will always be boys... So cute!

I got to meet a new photo buddy!

And reconnect with my oldest and most favorite photo buddy! (Love this guy...)

Check out my Flickr account for some more pictures! It was a great day...

I promise more posts soon! I've just been so busy lately... My apologes ladies! I'll pick up my act soon, promise ♥

Okay, so it might technically be Thursday now... But I haven't gone to bed yet, so I think it still counts as Wednesday!

Tonight's pictures are a little different... It rained all day, so some of these are from inside the house and the last one was taken at night with only the use of our little porch light. So if you could please excuse the blurriness and awkward lighting, I'd be most grateful ♥

This dress just might be my new favorite. Oh, and the best part is it's only $13.50

Car Show adventures & the C  U  T  E  S  T car ever ♥

A few weekends back there was a HUGE car show in town. Ryan and I totally had to go because we could easily spend hours looking at beautiful classic cars. And that is just what we did!

There were 4,000 cars there! We spent hours walking and looking at them all, but there was still no way that we were able to see each and everyone. But wow, did we see some beauties ♥

Vintage Rolls Royce

And then I saw it... I saw what just might be, the cutest car ever made!!

I present to you... The BMW Isetta!

And to give you an idea of just how tiny this car is... Here's a picture I found online of Cary Grant in one!! How cool is that??

W A R D R O B E     W E D N E S D A Y

Alright girls, I'm going to try my hand at a new weekly post. As the title above states, this post will be about wardrobe. Some weeks it might be a post like this one, which features an outfit out of my wardrobe. Other weeks,you know the ones I'm feeling lazy, might feature an item I want in my wardrobe. Or maybe some weeks, some great sales that can help you expand your wardrobe!

I tossed this together for an afternoon strolling around the park and some Thai food after (yum yum!).

I was pretty stoked to wear my new hat for the first time. I think it makes a pretty niffy prop as well ♥

Over all this outfit is a perfect example of cute (at least to me lol) ways to stay cool on these hot summer days.

MTV Movie Awards - Red Carpet Hits and Misses

I wasn't able to watch all of the MTV Movie Awards last night, but I gotta say having Aziz Ansari as a host was brillant! I love him so much ♥

This post isn't so much about the awards ceremony though, it's about the red carpet. Which is of course, my favorite part of any awards ceremony ♥ So here's some of the best, the almost, and the bad.


Cameron Diaz in this DVF minidress is just perfect! Her stylist was spot on with these shoes. In fact, I really wish they'd magically appear in my closet ♥ The casual up-do and beachy makeup makes this outfit perfect for Cameron's laid back style.

Scarlett Johansson brought a bit of Old Hollywood glamour with this belted Dolce and Gabbana dress. I love how she still makes it fun and youthful with the tousled hair and simple accessories! Oh, and how perfect is her makeup? Kudos to her stylist! Spot on ♥

Sandra Bullock in this backless Oday Shakar minidress is just pure class! Paired with sky-high Christian Louboutin heels, sleek ponytail and demure drop earrings, this is another great example of what good styling can do to an outfit ♥

Kristen Stewart shows off her quirky personality in this adorable Dolce & Gabbana piece. I love how the styling was kept simple with the strapy black heels, simple jewelry and messy ponytail. Great inspiration for an outfit for your next night out on the town! ♥

Audrina Patridge looks beautiful in this silver CD Greene dress. But to be honest, these shoes and big silver bangles just ruin it... I really wish her stylist had been a bit more creative with the shoes and jewelry. I wish it had been paired with some turquoise shoes and/or jewelry, which would also make it feel more youthful and summery. This could have been a hit, but is definately a miss now!

Eva Mendes looks beautiful in this sparkly Stella McCartney dress! But once again, I'm blaming a stylist for lack of creativity. Those shoes just don't go and I really wish her hair had been swept up into a loose and casual updo to show off her beautiful neck and shoulders. This is another that could have been a huge hit, but sadly missed the mark. Oh, what could have been!

Lindsay Lohan looks like a mess in this Pamella Rolad jumpsuit. I mean, I understand her not wanting the SCRAM bracelet to show... But come on, there are plenty of beautiful maxi dresses out there right now that would have been simply stunning on her! Or even if she wanted to pair a minidress with with some boots. Just please, anything but this!

Jessica Alba is so beautiful and usually dresses fabulously. But this outfit was just a hot mess, and not in a good way! It seriously looks like she got dressed in the dark. If I were her, I'd rethink using that stylist again. I hope next time we see her on a red carpet, she'll be dressed in something as beautiful as she is!

So those are my thoughts. What did you girls think? Any thoughts on the MTV Movie Awards, ceremony or fashion? You know I love to hear from all of you! ♥

Summer Concert Plans

I love music. In fact, you might say I'm a tad obsessed with it. And being a music lover, nothing quite beats the rush of seeing a gifted artist perform live. Because of this, one of my favorite things about summer, is that it's concert tour season! We've already got tickets to two on our "must see" list, and a few others that we're hoping to see... But as you know, concerts ain't cheap! (sadly...)

First, we've got Adam Lambert on July 15. I can't even say how excited I am for this show!! I think Adam has such an incredible voice, but most of all... The man was born to be on stage!! What a performer!

For those of you not familiar with Adam's music, here's a little taste for you ♥

Speaking of music videos... I can't wait for the video for his latest single "If I had You" to be released. It looks like something out of Tim Burton's "Alice in Wonderland" ♥

Like I said, sooo excited to see this amazing performer live!! I'm going to get as close as possible! Oh and don't worry, I will be posting pictures ♥

Then on August 13th, we will be seeing Chevelle and Shinedown(!!!)! We've been fans of both bands for quite sometime. Although, I am more familiar with Shinedown's music, so I'm probably a little more excited about them...

These guys can put on quite the show, and I can't wait to see them live and up close.

Oh, and the best part? We've got 3rd row seats!!! I get excited just thinking about it....

What concerts are all of you hitting up this summer?? Who knows, maybe I'll even bump into some fellow bloggers at these shows. You never know!
