you know it hits the spot when...

 dress, neon belt: forever 21 / tights: c/o We Love Colors
timo wedges: c/o Blowfish Shoes / clutch: c/o Le Mode Accessories 

1. when you french-kiss a unicorn. in other words, inhale a Taco Bell Dorito taco in three big bites.
2. when picmonkey makes your day after your unexpected withdrawels from picnik.
3. when you wear cobalt blue tights or cobalt blue pants. either works for moi.
4. when you go through two books that have bored you like crazy and then come across a new one that makes you fist-pump the air and say yes, that was what i was talking about
5. when you find a new shade of nail-polish that you wear for weeks - coral reef by sally hansen.
6. when you hear a sermon at church that you know you were meant to hear. 
7. when you pour Almond Joy flavored creamer into your coffee. life-changing, i tell ya.
8. when you nail a drawing in Draw Something and feel like the next Van Gogh.
9. when you flip through the channels on a sunday afternoon and find a movie you never get sick Forest Gump.
10. when you eat cereal anytime after 10pm.

much love.
{happy tuesday, friend.}

  3. Please tell me the book you're reading. I'm reading Fifty Shades of Grey and I HATE it so much =-(

  4. Dare I say it-- I think I might actually like picmonkey BETTER! :) have fun editing, friend! :)

  5. 2 confessions.
    1. almond joy creamer is the only thing I've been using for ages...and I cannot get enough.
    2. I was channel-surfing the other night when forrest gump came on. Just the opening credits, and just like that, I was all-out crying. Now maybe I was just feeling super womanly at the time, but I swear that movie gets me every all points throughout the month!

  6. My Sunday tv movie was totally Miss Congeniality ;)

  9. Your adorable! I saw your tweet about the doritos taco and I was courious to know if it was good or not. I'm guess a unicorn means good ;) wish they made them in turkey cause I would totally try!

  20. Can I add to your list - When you listen to a sound track that never gets old & always gives you a huge field of emotions - i.e. Forest Gump Soundtrack. Amazing.

    Specially the Picmonkey love & the cobalt leggings/pants!!!
