14 in 2014

Tuesday, December 31, 2013

14 in 2014 isn't a resolution, it's a list of 14 things I want to accomplish. Some are things that are easy, others are things that will take time and effort. But, I want to accomplish all 14 before December 31st 2014. 

2013 Round Up: Favorite Outfits

Monday, December 30, 2013

2013 is rapidly coming to a close and a reflection is needed. I like looking back and reflecting, because it shows how much someone has changed. 

These are my favorite outfits from 2013!

OUTFIT | Lately

Sunday, December 29, 2013



Friday, December 27, 2013

I spend a lot of time at my dressing table because it's gorgeous.  It's actually an antique that my grandma gave me, which was her grandmas in the turn of the century. It took some time, but I finally got it organized in a cohesive and stable way. 

On top, I display my make up brushes, my palettes, my lipstick, perfume, jewelry, and small hair accessories. The underneath is ibuprofen, nail polish and nail care items, as well as personal care items; it's not as pretty as the top.

I love it because it's ornate, and clustered, and dusted with colors in every shade. It's very Katie.

Since there is a cluster of things on my dressing table, I'm not going to list were I got my make up and perfume from, because a lot of it is was gifts. 

Table Cloth- H&M | Heart Shaped Box- Valentine's gift | Mirror- Goodwill | Dress Form Ornament- Goodwill | Mannequin Head- eBay |  Ring Holder -Target | LED Tea Lights-Target

What does your vanity set up look like?

2013 Round Up: Favorite Blogs

Tuesday, December 24, 2013

I read blogs, ya know. It's kind of a cardinal rule for a blogger to read blogs. I love all the blogs I follow, but, there are only a few that really stand out for me. 

Here is a round up of the blogs that have truly impacted me this year, as well as a list of blogs you should follow.

I love her style and her music choices, and she has opinions that she isn't afraid of voicing. I love her because she's so inherently English and it's so endearing!


A real life Ariel, it looks like! She's so gorgeous and I really enjoy her postings about her wedding. Her style is so classic, and her blog is adorable! Plus, her red hair is just amazing. 

Hello, Mr. Rabbit

I wish my city was as chalk full of adventures like Lindsey Louise's are. I didn't know Kansas City was so beautiful! Her vintage posts and her beautiful photography really make me fall in love with nature more and more. I live for her recipes and her photography.

Life in the Fruitbowl

Helen is an adorable and feisty YouTuber with such a rad sense of style. Her lilac hair is to die for, and I love her band, Box of Light.  Her style is a mix of 80s hair band with 90s grunge and kawaii thrown in.

The Pineneedle Collective

Annika is the cutest scientist I have ever seen, and her science infused fashion blog really brings out the science nerd in me. Her prints and her hair are so lovely, and she's one crafty individual.

Scathingly Brilliant

Kate is so lovely, and pastels look fantastic on her! I love her art, and her style. She's 60s inspired, with her scalloped hems and peter pan collars, but she has a 20s vibe, too. I just love her pastel hair and her kitty Arrietty.

Someone Like You
Lauren is such a sweetheart, and I love her writing style. She's incredibly genuine and has the cutest vintage inspired style. I cannot say enough good things about her; she is really worth checking out!

That's not all though!

Here is a mass list of blogs to check out, if you're feeling up to it! I would recommend every single one mentioned.

What's your favorite blog? 

Happy Christmas Eve!

Targus 50" Tripod: A Review

Monday, December 16, 2013

This is the Targus 50" Tripod. If you're anything like me, the price and the height is a green light to put in your credit card information to purchase. It's a great price, and it's almost as tall as I am, so I had high hopes for it.

OUTFIT | Kitschy Christmas

Sunday, December 15, 2013

Though I bought this red coat months ago, I only began liking it recently, as you all can tell. It's oversized, it has a peter pan color, and its'red. It's perfect.

Good morning! Or rather, afternoon.

Firmoo: Review

Friday, December 13, 2013

Firmoo is an online retailer of eyeglasses and since my other glasses are adorned with red washi tape to keep them from breaking, I thought it was about time to invest in a new pair!


Thursday, December 12, 2013

I know that 100 followers isn't a lot to some bloggers, but for me, that's a ton! There's 100 of you, real people, who enjoy my blog.

I thank all of you, and hopefully you all join me to welcome the next 100. ♥

Much love,

Tuesday, December 03, 2013

Sometimes life takes you by the throat and refuses to let go. You struggle for a bit, you maybe compensate by not breathing in as deep to survive for a little longer, but eventually, it will destroy you. So, sometimes you have to sever that hand so it lets go.

I want to resign from the world. No, that isn't a suicide indicator, bur rather a description of myself. I'm a recluse--I just find people exhausting--and I like staying in. 
And, to some, that apparently means that I have no life.
No, trust me, I have a life. It may not be glamorous, but it's a life.

Just little ramblings. 
Much love,
