words of wisdom from nemo's faithful sidekick.

top: an oldie, but goodie / shorts, belt: f21 / tights: belk
shoes: madden girl / nails: OPI jade is the new black

remember sweet little dory from finding nemo?
just keep swimming, just keep swimming.
gotta love that line.
it got me through many late night college papers.

i find myself humming a similar tune these days as life keeps getting busier and busier. and such is life. like i told the postal clerk today, i'd rather be busy than bored - and i am far from bored these days. (sidenote: the relationship between me and the local postal clerk has become less awkward these days - praise the Lord. i can mail packages with less dread. if you don't know what i'm talking about, you can refer to it here.)

and speaking of busyness, here is a sneak peak on the mass production of MLI earrings...


the colors are like eye-candy to me. yummy.
a few of them went into the shop
but the rest of the batch is leaving on a jet plane with me to AZ
(cue song: 'cause i'm leaving on a jetplane, don't know when i'll be back again...)

now try humming Leaving on the Jet Plane while i repeat Dory's words of wisdom.
 one, two, three...go!

much love.
[happy tuesday, friend.]

p.s. don't forget to enter the Amanda Lynne Designs incredible giveaway!
