rants and raves

You know those days when no matter how hard you try you cant seem to knock the negative disposition?

Today was one of those days... It started when i looked in the mirror and thought "wow, you're looking more and more like a cross dresser everyday" then i proceeded to tear apart every aspect of my physical appearance.  And so went my day-  thoughts of the terrible mom, wife and person that i am flooding my head. Then i finally realized how pathetic i was. I kind of LOVE it when that happens. Those moments when you realize that your very worst and longest list of complaints look exactly like a list of blessings. 

 I hate my body= i have a healthy working body, I feel like a terrible mom= thank God im a mom, I never get to see my husband anymore= at least i have a husband that i WANT to spend time with, i wish i had my own home= at least i have a home... and so it goes. 

I challenge you to try it... its a bitter sweet experience :)

Organize your Shoes!

I dont know about you but if I dont have a nice neat and concise way to organize my shoes i end up wearing the same four shoes on the top of the pile over and over again. There really is nothing nicer than being able to go into your closet and snatch the pair of shoes you want without having to dig. So here are a few ideas you can use to help you get those shoes organized!

For shoes you don't use all the time, use that top shelf in your closet for shoe containers with pictured tags to save space!

White shelves are clean and simple
Rakku Designs makes this clever Ferris wheel shoe storage system that can hold up to 30 pairs.

If you have extra space on a wall or in your walk in closet, create a mantle to hang your shoes on.

Shoe cubbies keep your pairs nice and neat.

The simplest way to achieve simplicity is through thoughtful reduction.
Organization makes a system of many appear fewer.
Savings in time feel like simplicity.
Knowledge makes everything simpler.

Simplicity and complexity need each other. (The more complexity there is in the market, the more that something simpler stands out.)
Some things can never be made simple.
Simplicity is about subtracting the obvious, and adding the meaningful.,simplicity,typography,quote,inspirational,simple-f707ad96684b721d491ac3e9bfa8f8c6_h.jpg

midnight snack

 Heres my little recipe for this delicious dessert pizza:
1 (18 ounce) package refrigerated sugar cookie dough
4 oz softened cream cheese
1 cup whipped cream
1/2 teaspoon of sugar and a little powdered sugar

  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Press cookie dough evenly into a 12 inch pizza pan or if you dont have one just use a pie pan. Bake cookie dough for 15 to 20 minutes, until golden brown. Cool.
  3. Mix cream cheese, whipped cream and sugar
  4. Spread whipped topping over cooled crust.  Put some fruit on top, refrigerate to harden a little and  voila!

its the little things...

The Im:mortal Collection is a simple and beautiful collection of small leather goods out of Portland but you can also make your can either buy a little leather pouch kit from the Tandy Leather Factory, or just go to joannes and construct one of your own. My comment above about filling the pouch with something special would be a cute way to make these simple pouches your own. You could add dried lavender, a tiny photo, some seashells, or anything else that is small and special to you. 

And i like the models hair. haha ohh how i wish i had long, thick, textured hair!!!

These silver nails... awesome. You can achieve this look by buying the silver "skull" minx at sephora here. The skull graphic only comes on the thumb and i think you can just use the extra one it comes with if you dont want the skull on your thumb. ha.
