just a heads up.

Remember: I'm offering 5 dollars off of any ad!


mixing prints.

I don't know about you guys, but a trend that I have seen lately is mixing prints.

At first, I was like, "Oh, no. We are all about to look like we got dressed in the dark."

But then I looked up some different outfits. It can actually be accomplished cutely.

That was a surprise to me.

BUT - don't get me wrong, it can be done completely wrong.

Exibit one.

So here are some tips when it comes to mixing prints that I hope you all take into account when trying out this new trend.

FIRST - Do not mix too many prints. If you have zebra, checkered, stripes and polka dots all in one outfit that could be a problem.

SECOND - Make sure the colors of the outfits compliment each other. (ex: red with navy blue, or green with white)

THIRD - Combine "tight" patterns with loose patterns. (ex: stripes with swirls)

FORTH - Big with small patterns.

FIFTH - Have one key piece and form your outfit around that piece. 

I hope that made sense. It did in my mind. 

But PLEASE, before you decided to venture off in the mixing patterns trend consider these five, helpful, simple tips. :)

Have a wonderful day! 

Make sure to enter this giveaway! 

And if you are interested in sponsoring please email me to get your spot! :)

mug cookie recipe.

Do you have that craving for a warm, gooey, chocolate-chippy cookie right now? You know, the kind that comes right out of the oven, and when you pull it apart you can see the chocolate ooze out of it. The kind of cookie that slowly melts in your mouth? 

How would you like to have that cookie in 50 seconds? 

Well...look at that. By the time you read this post you will have a cookie made. Perfect! 

Lets get started. 

First! Melt a tablespoon of butter in the mug of your choice. 

Secondly, add one table spoon of white sugar, one table spoon of brown sugar, a pinch of salt, and a 'lil vanilla. 

Add and egg yolk and mix it up with a fork until it is smooth. 

Add 1/4 cup of flour.

Mix it until it looks like...well...cookie dough.

Add some chocolate chips, or white-chocolate chips, or butterscotch...whatever you heart desires.

Mix it again.

Microwave it for 40-50 seconds. 

And wa-lah! You made a cookie in a mug. :)

Now, grab a tall glass of milk and enjoy. 




i love illusy.

As you can guess from this title, this is a post about one of my lovely sponsors. 

I don't know if you guys noticed from the last post about this wonderful Etsy shop, but this girl is amazing. 

Her jewelry is so simple, but yet so unique. 

It's my style to a T. 

So, I got some new earrings. Take a look.

The earrings are always wrapped so beautifully! :)

Now these are the kind of earrings someone is either going to love, or going to hate. Personally, I love them. :)

BUT - Illusy has a treat for you guys. She has given us a discount code to use at her shop! 

The code is: SOHI15

15% off! Oh yea! 

So get to it. Check out her site and fall in love.
