Happy Olympics!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Happy Olympics!!! My gosh, this combines my two favorite things..sports and America. These two weeks are literally what I live for...and if it were socially acceptable to walk into work with my face painted red, white, and blue..I would do it.

Jamie and Furbish Does it Again





Every project Jamie posts on her blog is more amazing than the last, and this Raleigh house tour is no different! Do you think I can afford to have her come to LA and redecorate my casa. My goodness, I just admire the mixing of prints and bold colors and patterns.

Bows in my Hair


Today, because I am currently on day 5 hair( don't judge) i have it back with a bow in my hair. I haven't worn a bow in my hair since about......7th grade? I kinda like it. I feel like nothing can go wrong today with a cute little black bow in my ombre hair. (ask me how that worked out in about 12 hours)

What I Wish I Was Wearing

I ran across this picture on pinterest and this is exactly how I wished I looked walking into the office today . An adorable outfit of stripes and a bubble necklace and just amazing waves. I'm in JCrew and Zara and my go to Chanel flats today..I'm making an effort to put more effort into my outfits on a daily basis..that one little thing seems to turn my day around.

Happy Monday kittens.

Happy Friday---Resolutions Update

With it almost the end of July (um omg) I figured it is time for another update on some of my 2012 resolutions (see update one here ) Let's just say I think my progress has backtracked tremendously

BE HEALTHIER
(wowsa. I think I may be in some of the most unhealthy habits and shape I have been for a while)

-BE MORE OUTGOING
(yeah...I am possibly even more shy than before?)

-DATE MORE
(well, I've given up dating about 10 times this year. It is so hard. Being single is even harder, so I keep on trecking. Dating in Los Angeles is. so. hard. I make terrible choices)

-LET GO OF THE PAST
(omg. so not good at this.)

-READ MORE BOOKS. WATCH LESS TV.
(I am watching less tv. read the 50 grey series...I really need to read something substantial next.)

-GO BACK TO CHURCH-REALISTICALLY AIM TO GET THERE ONE SUNDAY A MONTH
(I am not going to lie, I am really struggling with my faith and am not sure where I am going with this one)

-WRITE HANDWRITTEN NOTES.
( I have done this a little more)

-CALL MY GRANDPARENTS MORE
( I've tried to do this a little more!)


-LEARN HOW TO DO MY OWN MAKEUP/HAIR(yeah, I found a place that blows my hair out for 15.00--I'm never learning how to do my own hair)

-MASTER A SIGNATURE DISH AND COCKTAIL
(well, I made this for a boy, with sides of mac n cheese and potatoes. It turned out great. I never saw him again. Ill gladly tell you why in a personal message. It wasn't my steak.

-ALONG WITH DATING-ESTABLISH A SIGNATURE, GO TO DATE OUTFIT
(have a great first date outfit for summer dates. my other go too was for fall/winter)

-ACTUALLY WEAR THE CLOTHES IN MY CLOSET. REMIND MYSELF I DON'T NEED A NEW OUTFIT FOR EVERYTHING
(doing a little better on this one. Really trying to curb my spending)

-MORE BLOGGER BRUNCHES/LUNCHES/DATES
(yay! have been successful at this one! had at least one blog date a month)

-DECORATE AND SHARE MY NEW PLACE
(slowly but surely. I do hope to do this by years end-my job luckily always has my creative juices flowing on this)

-JOIN A CLUB/GROUP
(not sure when I'm getting the time for this.)

So, I've for sure backtracked, with less time less in 2012 than I'd like.....How are you ladies doing?

Drink This for 7 Days...

After seeing Jillian Michaels at the nail salon last weekend, I then found online this recipe for a 60oz beverage to add into your diet to lose 5lbs of belly fat. Anyone ever try this? And where do I find some of this stuff??

Apartment Progress


I'm so excited I finally decided on a color scheme for my living room for my apartment! I am going to go with some light mint walls, and do the back of my door and the molding in glossy black! I am really excited I think it will just accent my current furniture nicely, as well as my new coffee table I just ordered! Yay for some progress( 7 months later...)

Happy Weekend loves!!! Anything fun on the agenda??? I am so excited Breaking Bad is back on Sunday night (anything to get me out of the funk I've been in all week over the Bachlorette) and I am also going to record that mini-series on USA Political Animals I think. Worth a shot. I also hear its suppose to rain all weekend in LA? Gross.

Bad Blogger Here


Hi to any readers I have left. I am so sorry I've been so MIA this summer and really most of the year. I've really missed blogging and am really ready to get back in the swing of things around here. So stayed tuned for the new ( well, old) Sweet Nothings around here, and fill me in on all your happenings!

'America...F...Yeah







The fourth is my favorite. I love celebrating this great nation. Some people may call me old fashioned--I just call myself blessed to be able to live in this great nation.

So enjoy my favorite version of America the beautiful by Ray Charles and hopefully some of you all have more than just Wednesday off to celebrate--and even though I only get that one day to celebrate with my family and friends, I am so thankful to all those who cannot spend the holiday with their families, who are continuing to serve to give us another year of independence.
