Faces and condensation

My love for Houston’s warmth is gone. Sunny skies and cool wind has been replaced with fog and humidity. I rather wear a coat than have to reapply deodorant at work. It’s not cute.

A little bit of gloom, a little bit school girl uniform. This white button up from AE is one of my favorites because it’s such a lightweight breathable piece. I was inspired by the large window in my living room and the overcast sky to play with lighting and shadow in these photos. It’s a little different, but I like it.

Have a great Tuesday and thank you for reading.

Love Club

It’s the day of love!

Or the day of, you know, eating heart-shaped stuff.

I’m feeling very “Maybe it’s Maybelline in these photos.” But whatever, it’s totally apropro because today is also Fancy Friday. Click here to check out the other lovely people sharing their V-Day looks.

It’s been a running joke that my boyfriend of two years has never bought me flowers, because he hasn’t, UNTIL TODAY. Behold, my bountiful bouquet!

Such a pretty little arrangement. We’re keeping it cool tonight with some Pinkberry and pizza. My kind of Valentine’s treat.

Thank you for reading and have a safe and wonderful evening.

Rodeo

I live in Houston where the rodeo is a pretty big deal. Excuse me while I get into the pre-rodeo spirit with my plaid shirt and deer necklace.

“Leah, is that even a deer? What does that have to do with the rodeo?”

Sshh, just go with it.

American Eagle’s Project Live Your Life starts Monday and I am so excited. It’s my dream to be in one of their campaigns, and their back to school shoot would be perfect. I’ll be sure to include the link to my profile so that you guys can vote for me, you know, if you want to.

Have a great Saturday and thank you for reading.

Lavender Brown

Another Harry Potter reference. Are you even surprised?

Speaking of which, I just found out yesterday that I can become an associate of a college at Rice University, one of which calls themselves Slytherin. Yes? Yes.

It’s still only January but Houston doesn’t care. It’s been in the low 70’s so in my mind, it’s spring. I’ll use any excuse to wear floral.

Have an amazing Saturday and thank you for reading.

Happy New Year

Oh hey! It’s a new year. My boyfriend and I welcomed 2014 by eating Ben and Jerry’s and watching multiple episodes of That 70’s Show. No regrets.

ALSO, I now have Instagram! You can click here to follow me or on my photo feed on the left side of my homepage. My username is queso_kisses. Prepare to see a lot of my dog.

I’ve had my eye on this necklace since Ingrid Nilsen a.k.a MissGlamorazzi on YouTube debuted it in her Baublebar collection. Even though it was released months ago, my boyfriend still surprised me with it on Christmas. It’s a new treasure.

I start my new job tomorrow! I’m extremely nervous, but also excited. Wish me luck!

Have a great January 1 and thank you for reading.

What a crazy week it’s been. Christmas was bittersweet due to the absence of my grandpa, and I am now relaxing and taking advantage of the amazing new camera my boyfriend gave me for Christmas.

It is a sunny 66 degrees in Houston today so I wore a dress with NO LEGGINGS. What.

This purse and I are inseparable. My mom gave it to me for Christmas and I think it’s perfect. I am a crossbody fanatic, and this one fits all my essentials. I want one in every color.

I hope everyone had a fantastic holiday. 2014 is around the corner. How will you be celebrating? My only wish for the new year is that my family gets a break from grief and that we have more blessings than sadness.

Have a restful Sunday and thank you for reading.

TV Finds: Ja’mie Private School Girl

This show, y’all. This show. 

I can’t.

Thanks to my friend, Nicky for recommending it to me, I have finally watched the first three episodes of Ja’mie Private School Girl and I can’t get enough. Played by Chris Lilley, Ja’mie King is a sassy multi-talented school girl who hates fat lesbians and chin acne. You need to grow some tits if this show offends you. I love this unique Australian comedy series and it is my new favorite thing in existence right now.

It is so hilariously odd that I was very surprised to be smitten with Ja’mie’s party outfit.

It’s so girly and shiny that I couldn’t help but love it. I don’t usually wear yellow, but I would if it meant I would attract all the quiche boys at Kelton Grammar.

Ja'mie approved

Misha Goldie Dress
Retro Curtain Dress

My favorite part of her outfit is her metallic blazer. It hits at her waist and looks so damn cute over her yellow fit and flare jacquard dress. Here are my picks to pair with your yellow frock.

If you’re open to blunt, offensive humor, this show may be for you. I’m a fan of creative insults and Ja’mie delivers.

I think TV Finds are my favorite kind of posts so if you’ve spotted an outfit or item in your favorite show that you would like me to research, let me know!
