February Scarf Challenge

Over the past few years I've collected a good amount of scarves and it has come to the point that I don't wear all of my scarves like I should. The weather here in NC has been a bit confusing this past month, but I feel as though I can successfully accomplish what I'm hoping to do this month. 

That being said, I am challenging myself to a wear a different scarf everyday until the month of February is up. I think by accomplishing this I can feel better about myself in many ways. 

1. I will know that every scarf has been used
2. I will see exactly where all of my money has gone and that it has been put to good use
3. It will force me not to look like a scrub everyday 
4. Lastly, it will be fun!! 

Starting today I will do a short post with my scarf of the day, check back to see my ridiculous collection!!!

TV Obsession Confessions

Ever since I was a little girl, I've always loved television. Especially when there are cute male leads and good love story. What can I say, I'm a sucker for some romance. It wasn't until this morning that I realized I have to many emotional feelings invested in these TV shows. 

Since this is a confessions of the sort I figure I'll elaborate on my past and current obsessions.

1. Dawson's Creek 
I Love Pacey Witter 
2. 7th Heaven 
I mean come on, Lucy made out with Lance Bass before he outed himself. 

3. One Tree Hill 
SO much LOVE for this show....words cannot describe my heartbreak when it ended.

4. The Vampire Diaries
My love first started with the books and then transferred to the shows, SO MUCH HOTNESS IN ONE PICTURE.
5. Glee
Cute boys singing all episode long...yes please!

6. Pretty Little Liars 
WHO do you think is A???
7. The Lying Game

The first 5 episodes were absurd and weird, but then it turned the corner. Who is trying to kill Sutton and Emma?

8. Revenge
I mean who doesn't want to be a badass like Emily Thorn?
9. Downton Abbey 

I can't believe how amazing this show is...I want season 4 right now and I want to go to London ASAP.

10. Emily Owens M.D.

I'm so sad to find out that tomorrow is the last episode in this show series. WAHHHH

11. Hart of Dixie
Rachel Bilson. Nuff said.

12. Make It or Break It

I mean all three seasons are on Netflix Instant...why not?

Lucy and Me

Recently I noticed that I have never really explained the reason I call my jewelry line Lucy and Me Jewelry. Today I feel like this post is acceptable for it would be my sister Lucy's 31st birthday! (Happy Birthday Goosehead!)10 years ago Lucy passed away from a rare form of non-hodgkins lymphoma. It was a fast and quick fight ending with my sister passing away after 7 months of battling the horrible disease. 

It's taken me many years to get to a good place with it all, and I still miss her so much everyday. In hopes of keeping her in my heart and in my mind always, I decided that I would honor her with my jewelry line and thus brings me to my decision to name my line after her. 

My favorite picture of us together!

House Renovation Dreams

Lately I have been pinning like crazy due to my lack of a job, and I decided that I might as well pin some potential ideas for my house renovation. So this week I'm linking up for WILW and Oh How Pinteresting!!!

Here are various things that I have pinned into my secret boards in hopes of making this pin dreams come true in a few months once we move back into our house!!

To maximize space in my bathroom and have clutter free counter tops!

This could definitely go in my bead room for inspiration purposes!

This is a definite must in my kitchen. 

If for some weird reason they are able to salvage my bathtub, I'm definitely thinking about doing my shower curtains like this! 

I'm a sucker for pink

As well as a sucker for chevron!

Absolutely love this idea of painting ceiling medallions for wall art! 

I love everything about this! 

No caption needed...every girl needs this.

I have other ideas in the back of my head and on my secret pin board, but I like to think this is a good start!

Which pin is your favorite?
