pop stars, pink lips, parties, and pleated dresses.

denim jacket (oldie): Urban Outfitters / dress: c/o Tailor and Stylist / leggings: F21 / moccasins: Minnetonka / necklace: c/o Le Mode Accessories / lip gloss (elsa) : c/o Radiant Cosmetics 

not too much to report today, my good people. other than mint green and pleated dresses continue to rock my face off - and the fact that i have fallen completely head over heels in love with bright pink lip color. and especially after watching some American Idol last night and glossing up my lips with this shade of pink from Radiant Cosmetics this morning, i smacked my lips together and told Ryan that i felt like Nicki Minaj: heeeeey, laaaaady bug and continue to pucker my lips obnoxiously towards him (if you have no clue who Nicki Minaj is or if you have stopped watching AI, oh 10 or so seasons ago, you can disregard the previous quote).

oh, but alas! i do have something to report! it just popped into my head mid-post (cause that is how i roll in real life conversations  especially on the day before the weekend - frantic, interjections mid sentence!)

so now being an old married woman of two months and nearly a half (where does time go?!), the fun of planning a reception (the real partaaaaay!) is starting to unfold. i am super giddy since the details are slowly coming together. we already have a venue and a date set (eeek!) which feels like a huge check off my to-do list. so do excuse my pinterest boards if you happen to follow them, a large number of my pins lately are all wedding reception related. and if you are trying to figure out my theme or what exactly i am planning with this gathering, don't. i'm still trying to figure out that part myself. *wink*

much love.
{happy friday, friend.}
