Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

I am going to keep this short, sweet, and to the point because I have trick-or-treaters constantly arriving in their precious costumes! One of the first trick-or-treaters who rang my doorbell said “I am Cleopatra under my coat.” It was totally adorable *wink*

Now, since I cannot give each of you, my readers, a piece of candy; I am going to share some fabulous photos + a fun Halloween quote. :)

I love the spirit of Halloween and the energy that comes with it.

Weekly Whistle: Sock It to Me

IMG_7889

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

Two of my favorite mid-fall things to wear here in the South are socks and shorts. When it’s too hot for pants, but too cold for just shorts–I break out my fancy socks and chino shorts to create sassy and fall-inspired ensembles. 

So, for this week’s Weekly Whistle, I decided to sock it to y’all…see what I did there *wink* I went a bit simple with the main components (shorts, blouse, shoes) because the socks are so stately. To make this outfit more fall-ish, I stuck to warm hues and dressed up the light-colored blouse with bronze-toned accessories. 

Now, let’s take a look at the fabulous photos + outfit details! I bet y’all cannot guess where I picked up these expensive looking socks for a lovely deal *wink*

BLOOPER: The face you make when a squirrel almost falls on your head from the tree limb above you. What a lovely way to start the morning, right? *wink* That very much makes me think about John Caparulo's skit about getting bit by a swan on the way to work. HAHA! Ah! If you have not seen it, check out the video below:

VIP Home: Welcome to the Jungle That Was Once Called My Yard

IMG_7800

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

This week on VIP Home, I am going to welcome y’all to the jungle that was once called my yard. *cue Guns N’ Roses*

Since my last post about my apartment green space, I have barely pulled a weed or tended to anything other than cutting the grass. Yes, shame on me–I am not a gardener, nor do I claim to be one. *wink* With colder weather vastly approaching, I knew I needed to get my yard all nice and clean because nothing is worse than trying to weed a garden with frozen soil…well, I suppose digging for gold in Alaska would be worse. Speaking of gold in Alaska…I just love Gold Rush–Parker Schnabel and his granddad are the cutest things since purple rain boots *wink*

Now, where was I? Oh, yes–my jungle. Can you see why it has not gotten properly tended to? My life is full of distractions…so many distractions.

So, without further ado, let’s take a look at the BEFORE photos of my yard and the during of the pre-winter clean up. Come back next week to see the AFTER photos + my finished walkway! Ah! I cannot wait to reveal it to y’all :)

I was cleaning up my yard while also babysitting my mom's dog Lucy. Lucy in this photo is saying, "what in the world is this mess, woman?!" You know your yard is messy when your dog tells you...or perhaps that's the lack of sleep talking *wink* Oh, what a busy (and beautiful) life!

I'm a plant murderer. Neighbors, do not ask me to water your plants while your on vacation. I can assure you that I will forget to water them...I mean, look at my fern. Pitiful. I am not proud.

My neighbors vines creeping in under the fence. This image very much reminds me of a silly science fiction movie I watched one time...something about killer vines? *wink*

An excessively necessary amount of weeding took place. Also, Mattie decided to pop in for a photo.

My massive bee balm plant turned bush...literally. The thing has a stalk...A STALK.
