Pitter Powder

Pitter Powder
Sometimes I long for the days when life was simpler. This necklace was really great so I created a set around it. It reminds me of time travel for some reason. Once I found this cute print from an Etsy shop I was set. : ) The dress is from ModCloth it is called Pitter Powder Blue Dress. The shoes and necklace are also from ModCloth. The earrings are Forever 21. The print of the baby is from Etsy  shop Printed Heirlooms. It is super super cute you should check it out!!!http://www.etsy.com/listing/77281936/faded-vintage-inspired-print-of-baby

How to get the badge for Leibster Award on your page

Frustrated young  woman.

 

This is how I feel about my computer sometimes. I am pretty clueless, but learning slowly. Anyway some people had questions about how to add their Leibster Award Badge to their page.

FOR PEOPLE THAT WERE NOMINATED FOR THE AWARD ONLY!!!  (play fair and be nice everyone : P)

I am not very computer savvy but was able to do this pretty easily and I even discovered a whole new page on my WordPress Dashboard YEAH!!!

* Go to your dashboard

* Hover over appearance

* Click on Widgets

The box all the way on the right has all the widgets that are already displayed on your page. You can choose to put it in the side bar which is the top box or the Footer which is the box below and they are labeled as such.

I chose the sidebar

* From the big box on the left hand side click on IMAGE and drag that over to your box where you want your award either the sidebar or footer box.

The order of all the things already listed is the order they appear on your page so I put my image all the way at the top of my sidebar list.

*Now you should have the word IMAGE displayed in the spot you would like your Leibster badge to show up

Now that you picked a spot you need to put in the URL code in the image box so the picture of the badge shows up on your page

* Now go to my page and right click on the Leibster badge.

* Then there will be a choice to “copy image URL” select that

* Now go back to your widgets page and click the down arrow next to IMAGE where u choose to put your badge.

* Paste the link you just copied in the box that says Image URL

* Then click SAVE at the bottom

CONGRATS !!! You just posted a your badge on your page!!!!

Also I have don’t have a Mac computer so that might change the “right click” instructions.

Hope this helps. : )

5. I hate the dark

6. I can write with both my left and right hands…I can even write with both at the same time

7. My favorite color is purple or anything pastel

8. My dream career is to one day design and sew clothing. (first I need to learn how to use a sewing machine) haha

9. I love any song that has piano in it

10. I have a cat named Keeto. It is short for taquito…because he is orange like cheese. 

11. I am currently in Nursing school. Its hard!! But i love a good challenge.

What/Who inspires your blog?

I guess its a mix of vintage and shabby chic. I am inspired by ModCloth and Le Bomb Shop they have AMAZING clothing!! Also some bloggers that have really inspired me are:

http://www.cupcakesclothes.com/

http://www.scathingly-brilliant.blogspot.com/

http://howtobefancy.com/

http://esmeandthelaneway.blogspot.com/

http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/

And many others you guys are amazing!!

What’s the one piece of advice you wish you had taken?

SAVE YOUR MONEY!!! and Don’t get pregnant before you finish school!!  hahaha I love my daughter and wouldn’t change a thing but it hurts everyday I don’t get to spend time with her because I have to go to school.

When you were a child, what did you want to be?

I wanted to be a Veterinarian. I work at a vet hospital currently because of that. 

If you were not  in your current job what would you be now?

I would be a Nurse Assistant at a Nursing home somewhere. 

Everyone has a style icon, Who’s yours?

Zooey Deschanel: I love her style and her personality!! Rock on Girl!!

Modern or Traditional  and why?( Think ebooks and MP3′s Vs. CDS and books)

I like both. I would not be able to function without my cell phone, laptop, and digital camera, but sometimes I long for the nostalgia of the smell and feel of an old book in your hands, or being able to look over and admire your CD collection. I love the surprises you used to get when u brought your roll of film to the store to get developed. BE KIND REWIND!!! Ahhh going to the video store on Friday nights…

If your friends could describe you in one word what would it be and why?

That would be “Jess” They say that I act exactly like Jess from New Girl who just happens to be played by Zooey Deschanel. : )

What would your one word to describe yourself be and why?

Silly. I try not to take life too seriously I like to enjoy it and take others along for the ride with me.

What is the one quote, you wish you had said? (TV, Film, book, Play etc,)

May you never steal, lie, or cheat, but if you must steal, then steal away my sorrows, and if you must lie, lie with me all the nights of my life, and if you must cheat, then please cheat death because I couldn’t live a day without you. That quote is from Leap Year. It is a really cute movie if you like chick flicks, guys with hot Irish accents and Amy Adams you will LOVE IT!!

Leap Year

If you could go anywhere in the world where would you go?

I would go to Scotland. A lot of my ancestors came from there and it looks like a really beautiful place.

If you made one big change this year what would it be?

Hmmmm…… so many on the list which should I pick. My big change would probably be to lose weight. I have no problem with women of any size. It is great that clothes are made for all different body types. I gained a lot of baby weight and I still have half of it 4 years later haha. I wanna fit in my size M ModCloth!!

This dress is super cute but on my budget I can’t justify spending $155 on this dress when I can buy 3 other ModCloth dresses for that price. But again super cute and unique!!!

Biking to the farmer’s market to meet the girls

Biking to the farmer's market to meet the girls
It has been so nice out lately in San Diego it makes me wanna buy a pastel beach cruiser and bike all around town. Where better to go if you are being “green” then to the farmers market!!
I’ve been searching around the internet for cute “up-dos” for the summer. It gets so hot and my hair is very long, past the middle of my back. If anyone knows any good hair styles please share!! : )

I just found this dress on ModCloth. It is gorgeous!!! If they had it in my size it would be on its way to my house right now. I have the wedges shown above in tan with white polka dots. They are really comfortable and every time I wear them I get compliments. I am thinking about getting them in pink. They are from Forever 21 and really reasonably priced. Again …pastels make me happy!!! Have a good night everyone!!
