Its been a few days since my inital post and I'm happy to say I've been busy.
I decided to break my monotonous routine of watching TV. One of the perks of being here in Texas is a free and abundant amount of pecans. I had picked pecans earlier in the week for a candied pecan project I was probably never going to get to (like usual). I stared at the bowl and decided to get to work. I completely underestimated the tediousness of cracking those nuts! Here I was, thinking about all the family back home in California that I was going to send candied pecans to for the Holidays...until I realized it took an hour for both myself and my BF to not completely fill one sandwich bag. Sorry fam, maybe next year ;). I also put some time into a painting project. I'm painting our living room mirrors sunflower yellow to bring in some color. I even ended the night with a few sit-ups. I can't say it was a thrilling night, but it was my first small step forward.
I budgeted just enough to buy a new dress for my brother-in-law's wedding. Talk about retail therapy! Shopping is therapuetic. I zone out any stress and channel my creativity into expressing my personality and style in clothing. I found a sparkly black 3/4 sleeve, knee length wrap dress that made a statement without demanding it.
Rainy weather couldn't dampen the beautiful wedding. Congrats and well wishes to the newlyweds. I don't believe in posting pics of their private affair so I won't, but here are a few of my look.
I paired the dress with black tights (opaque, not sheer) and black wedge heels.
A better look at the shoes.
I added red as my pop of color. Red lips, red nails & red bangle...
I decided to keep the rest of the accessories small & simple. I don't like to over accessorize. You will come to see that I LOVE rings!
I was asked to arrange the flowers in the centerpieces for the bride and groom's table and of course I didn't hesitate.
All in all, I've felt better the past couple of days than I have in a few months. Blogging project successful so far. More to come!
