Make-Over Monday

Well, after years of wearing jeans and hoodies to work, I’ve decided to revamp my style; clean out my closet and get my act together.  I’m hoping to post each week on something I’ve purchased or acquired that I think has assisted me in this goal.  Any suggestions?  Please feel free to share!!

Here’s my outfit from today:  Top & Leggings were purchased from Kiki LaRue.  Boots and Jewelry were already looking for use inside my closet.  I think this is a huge improvement over my standard wardrobe and I received quite a few compliments!


Writing Prompt #1

“A friend of yours from the NSA calls. She says that for just one hour, she will let you listen to the conversations of any two people in the world. Whose conversations do you listen to and what do they say?”

  • First I would choose a random US Solider calling home to talk to his wife and kids. He would tell them what he could about his day and listen gratefully to them talk about theirs. The call would end with repeated I Love Yous and a promise to talk again as soon as possible.
  • My second choice would be Ryan Seacrest. Conversations with him must be totally entertaining as he covers all manner of entertainment and pop culture news. I think it would fun to hear his first-hand knowledge and inside information.

I saw this fun little survey on Pinterest as a get to know your teacher form.  I thought some of the questions were great though.
