For the Love of my Dogs...

Today I am blogging about my 'fur babies'.

I truly believe these are the best pets on the earth.

Willow (3 years) and Gracie (2 years) are the best dogs I could ever ask for!
They comfort me on days when I am really upset. Serious. Countless times Gracie has licked away my tears. They know when I'm sad. They are there to comfort me.

When I come home from work in the morning (yucky night shift) they are always at the top of the stairs waiting for me. So excited that I am home. What a great feeling.

At night time they LOVE to snuggle. Gracie loves to burrow under the covers. Sometimes I don't know how she can breath.

Willow, although independent, loves people. He is always so happy go lucky. Loves everyone. Including the vet. Yes the vet. We took him in the other day and he couldn't wait to get in to the building. As soon as we put him on the table at the vets office his tail started wagging. When the vet came in Willow jumped on him and started giving him kisses. The vet LOVED it. She said, usually you guys don't like me! I like this!

Do you guys have dogs? Do you notice specific personalities in them? Do you hate leaving them when you go some place?

Mini O.P.I

Ladies. I've died and gone to heaven. They make mini OPI nail polish and they are a lot cheaper on Amazon then buying one big bottle.

I'm not going to lie, I'm still going to buy the regular big bottles from my salon for $8!

I'm eyeing up this NYC Ballet collection, how pretty!

This Minne Mouse collection looks pretty too!

I am a sucker for mani's and pedi's! I always like to go with a buddy though! Any takers?! :)

Kris Jenner & QVC

Happy Tuesday y'all.

Something exciting happened to me today.

I discovered QVC. I have never really watched QVC, or purchased something from there.

But at 5am this morning I made my first purchase and got to talk live to Kris Jenner!

Here is my purchase:

Yes I am in love with this beauty!

Kris Jenner talked to me live on QVC air this morning. And she was actually really nice! Although in the back of my mind I was thinking of this SNL skit

I was loving her outfit that she had on and am debating on getting the jacket she was wearing seen below

For some other exciting news, my cousin over at Aimless Translation and I are putting together a 'Makeup Blog Swap' together. So stayed tuned for that!!

The Last Thing I...

Ladies. Please don't forget about the Wisconsin Blogger Get Together that I am putting together. I have had a ton of responses! So far it's looking like 8-10people! With more hopefully to participate!

Right now the location is looking like Wisconsin Dells as it is a central location...Time frame is looking like first weekend in October...however once I know everyone who wants to come I will send out a group e-mail to pick a date and time!!

Now for some fun! The Last thing I...


This little drink right here. (I am currently at Starbucks right now blogging because they knocked the power connection out at my house!) I totally recommend this drink! So refreshing and something different!!


Putting together this Wisconsin Blogger Get Together. I see people in other states do it all the time and I wish that I could do it so I thought, hey why not?! And like I said I am impressed by the amount of responses I have received via e-mail!!


Girls. I am in love. I purchased this Orgami Owl necklace online. If you haven't heard of it go check it out. Necklace was a little expensive but since it has arrived I've worn it every day!!

Well that's it for today ladies! Hope your all having a wonderful week! (While currently at Starbucks a British family is sitting next to me and I am LOVING their accents :)

VH1 Topo 40 R&B songs, Wisconsin Blogger Get Together?!

Weird title I know!?

The other day I was bored and flipping through the 'tellie' (yes I just wrote like I was British...ok not really)

and I came across VH1's Top 40 R& B songs.
What a flash back!!

Here are some of the songs I forgot about but secretly love!

TLC- No Scrubs

Blackstreet- No Diggity

Aaliyah -Are you that Somebody

And here are some songs that made me laugh:

R. Kelly - Bump & Grind

Ginuwine- Pony
(Though after seeing Magic Mike and seeing Channing Tatum dance to this, I love this song now, lol)

Okay ladies! Now for the most important part of the blog!!

I am looking to do a 'Blogger Get Together' with Wisconsin Bloggers.
I would like to do something that is half way in Wisconsin. I don't have a ton of followers so if any of you know any bloggers from Wisconsin please have them read this post. If you are interested and you are from Wisconsin please e-mail! I am looking to do something in September!

Weekend Recap & DIY Projects!

What a weekend I had ladies! Hopefully yours was better then mine!

Let's start out with work. What a busy weekend in the jail! The amount of bookings was ricdicoulous! OWI's, Domestics, Warrants, Probation Holds, etc. Thank goodness the weekend is over!

Then on my way home from work Saturday I came across a vehicle on the interstate flipped upside down! I am required by law (corrections officer) to stop if no one is around. So I make a u-turn and pull up to where the vehicle is. There is a young boy standing next to the vehicle. I ask him if he was all right and he said yes. I said what happened and he said he was 'texting' while driving. I didn't believe it. I could smell the alchohol radiating from him. 2 county sheriff deputies showed up and I helped them get the boy out of the ditch and over the fence. They performed field sobriety test on him and he fails. He PBT'D .19. Twice the legal limit. He was placed under arrest for OWI and was taken to jail. What a crazy night!

Now if my weekend couldn't get any worse I got into a huge fight with my best friend of 13 years...and I am pretty sure we are no longer friends. (she has deleted me off fb, blogging, etc) I will not get in to all the petty details but lets just say she called me some horrible names, said even more awful things, attacked my demeanor and my cousin who means the world to me. As sad as I am that we are no longer friends I think it's for the best. I don't need negative people in my life. Especially those you can take such low blows as to who you are.

Soooo after all of that I decided to focus on myself and my loved ones and do some DIY pinterest projects! Here are some I plan on doing tonight and tomorrow!

Linking up with Neely for Sunday Social!

What is your favorite store to shop at?

That would have to be Maurices, Forever 21, H&M(when I can get to one), Target and Kohls

If you could afford everything and anything which designer brand would you covet?

Well I guess I'm not a huge 'designer brand' person. I like JCrew clothes, I know they aren't designer but they are a little exspensive for me.

Must have closet staple:
Hands down hoodies. Must Must have. I live in those during the winter time. I would also have to say camis. I wear those under clothes all the time.

Favorite kind of shoes (brand or type)

I'm a flip flop kind of girl. But during the winters in Wisconsin I can't be wearing those! So I like my pumas and I like wearing my Ugg boots!

Best clothing deal you ever got:

Well if you ever go to Kohl's you always get major savings there. Yesterday my husband got a Croft & Barrow dress shirt on clearance for $12! Orginally $65

Style you would love to try:

Skinny jeans. Man I wish I could rock those!!
