obsessing over anything BILLABONG (still.) amazing, amazing, amazing company. 
Haven’t blogged for a while, went on a FAB vacation with my little family. Vancouver was Incredible (as always.) shopped till my little heart could shop no more… picked up some great pieces:
Marc by Marc Jacobs wallet, TNA sweater (black), billabong sweater (grey), Guess Brittney Skinny jeans (pink), Guess Ultra Skinny jeans (dark wash), billabong tank with WOLF PRINT! (finally got my wolf print tee!) and then lots of goodies for the munchkin and my hubby found ALOT of pieces for himself including amazing lime green skytop sneakers by Supra. 
clearly, shopping was a success.
Along with feeding our shopping addiction we hit up the Van Aquarium and went to the beach, what a beautiful city! I’m not quite back into working mode, but I’m sure I will get there shortly… plans for the next little while is to work on my writing and my Pro-Life stuff! Whoop Whoop! 
this week I’m gonna talk mad about upcoming fashion trends, including the oh so nasty sweater tied around your shoulders… that trend will fade quickly. (i hope.)

definately going OFF TOPIC today. (kinda)
I am a HUGE Justin Bieber fan. HUGE. I don’t really know what it is about him, He’s just… Talent wrapped in Beautiful poured into Really Nice Clothes. (yes, modern family… you always inspire me.) However, I decided not to get tix to his upcoming concert, the seats I wanted weren’t available and last time I saw him I had AMAZING seats — the whole experience was awesome. I feel like if I went this time it wouldn’t be as great & I would be sad. Lately I’ve been regretting that little choice, maybe my hubby will surprise me with tix for my birthday! (he’s usually sneaky like that.)
Now, why am I talking about JB randomly? He has MAD SWAG. seriously… if i could control what my husband wore (that would be a dream world) He would dress basically identical to Justin. I don’t understand why all these boys are such haters when JB is a perfect example of what all the ladies want… USE HIM! Dress like bieber, they’ll mistake you for him and BAM! “spend a week with ya boy you be callin’ me yo’ boyfriend.” I know this is by far my stupidest blog post, but I just had to get that out there. I Got me some Beiber-Fever. So to wrap it up… i love bieber, dress like bieber, have a wonderful monday!

Since I can’t wear my shorts today I thought I’d blog about them to get my fix. I am stoked about the variety of fashion forward shorts available this season! I feel like the last couple summers everyone was just wearing distressed, acid wash short shorts and it really wasn’t getting anybody excited. Lately, everybody and their neighbour wants to be a hipster so the shorts are getting crazy DIY looks and the prints are gorgeous! My favorite part of this little trend is the studding details added. I see shorts completely covered and then the ones with the small amount that has a big impact. I guess I should say my actual favorite part is the cut… HIGH WAISTED, 9-inch zipper, 90’s nasty! (well, at least thats how I would describe it.) This look is so easy to pull off and its figure flattering! Instead of having that little tummy you hate hanging over the low low low rise you rocked last year, tuck it into the waist of these babies and you’ll be looking oh-so-chic. I’m really hoping I see alot more of this style walking around my community. I feel like the girls are shy to this because they still dress for boys and not for girls. Dressing for girls is more fun, more satisfying and you actually look GOOD. boys just want you naked. (unless they are an out-of-the-ordinary good boy, they like fashion forward looks and those are the boys’ attention you should be looking for!) 
Back to SHORTS… the only thing you’ll need to watch in this style is your bum. The cuts can get preeeetty short. (like, shorter than short-shorts) Your bum likes the breeze and will definately try to sneak out the bottom instead of sticking around in that tight mess. So, make sure the length is working for your bum and that baby is staying put! (unless of course, you’re at the beach or…maybe thats the look you’re going for— but i sure hope not!)
I hope my rambling was to your liking this morning, have a fantastic sunday, If you happen to see the sunshine, please send him back my way :)

Getting Pretty For Church. :) 

Getting Pretty For Church. :) 

my husband took this photo of me the other day when we were out for a walk with our munchkin! i never have any artsy photos of myself so when my husband gets a shot that can be edited to my liking i’m always excited! he’s not the best photographer, but he’s improving… hopefully. 
its been so mad hot outside lately & i’m super stoked while getting dressed everyday! Summer fashion is my favorite. I’ve been doing a lot of different looks lately, needed a change. I’m going for a more mature, chic look. I love my grunge days — don’t get me wrong— i just need to consider putting my career first…and the impression I make on people has a big impact on how well i will do. I’m hoping to get back into esthetics and start to do some fashion related work on the side. I’ll also continue with my photography :)  
I am still questioning what type of fashion related work I could get away with and actually be successful with in this community. I know that there are fashion lovers and I know there are people who are definately interested in learning more about fashion for themselves. I am hoping to do some sort of fashion consulting on the side, but we’ll see how that goes. I have a lot of dreams and a lot of things that I want to do, its just hard to organize them to the point of making them actually happen!
The Pro-Life Walk for Life is this weekend so I’m freaking out! I have been waiting for something like this to happen in my community and I’ve been spreading the word and making my usual up-roar about abortion. It really needs to be stopped and the view on it needs to be altered in a major way! Asking for your prayers for this weekend. It will all be worth it to even save just one baby.

i absolutely love this.

i miss the city life. the BIG city. the beach front city. living in a smaller community has been good for me. its brought me closer to my family, shown me who my true friends are and is a safe environment for my daughter to grow up in. However, i miss the city life alot. Thank God we are able to go back and visit easily. (my trip is creeping closer!) Obviously its easier to live there when you are single and don’t have a family to pay for and worry about. life here is a lot more affordable and relaxed. I have to count my blessings and not dwell on the fact that my life may not be as exciting as it once may have seemed. The ocean won’t ever change and it won’t be long till I’m standing there in the fresh breeze soaking it all in. I just won’t take for granted the things the city offers and take it all in while I can. I hope my daughter loves it as much as we do… She is my everything and no matter how I feel, she comes first. where you live doesn’t define who you are. love and be loved.
