Happy Wednesday...

Hello everyone,
DON'T FORGET ABOUT THE GIVEAWAY!!!!!! Less than a week left until the drawing and only 4 people have entered so your chances would be pretty good :)

It has been raining like crazy here, so I have been cooped up doing alot of creating and not alot of running. Not sure if that is a good thing or a bad thing.  My boyfriend and I are doing an 8k in a few weeks, so I really need to be running! I will show you what I have been working on a little later. Here are some treasuries I have been featured in recently.

Just click to go see the full treasuries. Aren't they lovely?

This little feather is tiny but precious! Would be great to decorate your desk or any other small space.

The paper detail was decoupaged on with multiple coats.
The sides have been painted so it is ready to hang if you choose to do so! I also added a glossy coat of decoupage to finish it off.

Good start to my day....

 Hello There.
I woke up this morning and checked Etsy, as I'm sure all of us that have a shop do.  Etsy is addictive.. I check it like I check my phone. ANYWAYSS... I was pleasantly surprised that I had been featured in not one.. but two treasuries!! Thanks guys! I thought I would share them with you... click on the photo to see the whole collection.

This lovely treasury was curated by Aracen.  I love light blue!! How awesome is that bookshelf?

This wonderful collection was curated by JacquelineJewelry.  Thanks for including me :)

Other than that, my week has started out pretty well.  I start a new job tomorrow at  Libby Story, a clothing store, and I am really excited about it. Check them out online here.  The race went really well last weekend, I was happy with our time.  MSU beat Florida, which was a wonderful surprise.  I also was pleasantly surprised last night at the grocery store when I realized they are carrying my favorite Eggo Multigrain Blueberry waffles again.  They were discontinued for a while.  It's a small thing, but hey, they count too!! :) Hope everyone is having a good week!  Tomorrow I am going to announce a giveaway, so stay tuned.

Letty :)

Etsy Finds: Halloween

With Halloween quickly approaching, I decided to look around Etsy for some cute Halloween inspired finds.  I am really excited about my plans for this Halloween.  My friend and I are running in a 5K that is at midnight on the 30th.  It is going to be through a "haunted trail."  I think it's going to be super fun.  Since we will be running, I am not going to dress up.  There are so many cute Halloween costumes for the little ones on Etsy.. I just had to share some with you.

The beard is too funny...

This is the sweetest thing I have ever seen! If I had a little girl, she would be wearing this.

What guy wouldn't love this costume?? I'll have to admit, this is pretty adorable.

There is an abundance of these cute little tutus on etsy... I just had to add one. How cute is she!

Here are some other Halloween inspired items that caught my eye. Enjoy!!

Book Review: The Hunger Games

I am reading this set of books right now that is so awesome I had to share it with you.  BUT BE WARNED- they are super addictive.  My sister read them and described them to me and I was a little skeptical at first.  But, I took her word for it and got the first one and have been hooked ever sense! I just started the third book in the trilogy.  These books are such an easy read- I have read each in about 2 days. ( traveling has contributed to that too) 

Here is the synopsis of the first book from Barnes and Noble:
Katniss is a 16-year-old girl living with her mother and younger sister in the poorest district of Panem, the remains of what used be the United States. Long ago the districts waged war on the Capitol and were defeated. As part of the surrender terms, each district agreed to send one boy and one girl to appear in an annual televised event called, "The Hunger Games." The terrain, rules, and level of audience participation may change but one thing is constant: kill or be killed. When Kat's sister is chosen by lottery, Kat steps up to go in her place.

Ok, ok.. I know it sounds weird but take my word for it... they are REALLY good.  I think that they should make a movie from them.  If you are looking for a book that's thrilling and holds your attention.. this is it.

I am going to Atlanta to meet my boyfriend this weekend but I hope that I can find time to get a little reading in :)  I will let everyone know how the Northface Endurance Challenge goes.  Cross your fingers for me.. I'll need it!!

Have a good weekend,
Letty :)

Outfit Inspirations

Hello!! I hope everybody is having a good week! We had Fall Break yesterday and Monday so this is a short week for me!! On my agenda this week..  get ready for the trail run I am doing this Sunday with Adam.  I am really nervous about it.

It is a pretty drab day here.. really foggy and rainy.  So, I decided to brighten up my day with some fabulous outfit ideas.  Here goes..
I love the lace underneath these aviator jackets.  Of course, these are runway looks but you can find these pieces at affordable prices.

Here is a Free People lace shift dress that is more affordable.  I also just got a lace dress from target that was only $21.  I can't wait to wear it.. it's that cute green color that I love!

I like this aviator jacket from Express and it is fairly affordable at $148. 


This outfit from Free People goes along with the same idea but in a different way.  They paired a tough leather jacket with a floral skirt.  I love the way this looks. The high waisted maxi skirt with the jacket and the turquoise necklace.. perfection.

While I was browsing around for an outfit inspiration, I came across this top. I LOVE IT!!! Might have to start saving up for this one...

That's all for now!! I am thinking of doing a giveaway soon and there will be another tutorial coming up soon.. so check back!

Have a wonderful day all,
Letty :)

Scarf Tutorial From Old T Shirt

Hey guys!

I found this cool scarf tutorial in Glamour magazine a while back and have been meaning to try it and last night... I finally did! They got it from the book, P.S. I Made This... by Erica Nomesek.  I bet the whole book is good... may have to check that out! Anyways, the whole process takes about 15 minutes.  Super Easy.

First you find a t-shirt that you don't wear anymore.  I used a long sleeve one that had gotten a whole in it. Next, you just cut it straight across from arm hole to arm hole and throw away the top half.  I kept mine for scrap fabric though.. you never know :)

Now, you take the unhemmed side and begin cutting strips about every half inch to create fringe. Cut strips all the way around.  I cut about half way up.. but really you can make them as long or short as you like.

That's it!! Voila!!  A hip new scarf out of an old ratty t shirt. This is perfect for fall because it's not a warm scarf.. just a cutsie one :)

Enjoy and have a wonderful weekend everybody !

New items!!!

Three blog posts in one day.. told you I was behind!!  I have two good reasons though, my internet has been on the fritz and I have been busy creating new items for my shop. Valid excuses I would say.. Here are my new items.

I am going to be working on some more this week. I also am going to be working on two tutorials to share(one will be up by the end of the week, so check back) and I am thinking about doing a giveaway. What do you think?  Much more to come!!

Letty :)

Lucky me!!

This past weekend I won a giveaway that I wanted to share with you!  It was from The Beach Comber!
I won this lovely necklace.
How awesome!  I can't wait to wear it!  Their Etsy shop is absolutely lovely.. Here are a few of my favorite items.

Check out their shop here!  There are plenty of lovely pieces to look at. :)  I can't wait to wear my necklace! Thanks Beach Comber!!

Have a good day all!


Hey everyone!!

I am so behind on my blogging!  Today is catch up day :)  My sister and I did great in the race this weekend in Atlanta.  It was a wonderful weekend.  We did some shopping(all day actually) and I got some new items that incorporate the fall trends(yay!!).
Up before the sun to run in the race.
Now, to finish up those fall trends.  Camel is a huge one.  I happen to love this trend. It is everywhere and there are countless ways to incorporate this into your wardrobe.  The best way in my opinion... a camel colored coat.  The thing that I love about this trend is that it won't go out of style.  You can wear a camel colored coat for years to come.

All of these items are from Top Shop.  Click on the item to go to the link.  There is an abundance of camel items out there- shoes, bags, coats, sweaters, skirts, scarves you name it.  Top Shop has a huge selection to choose from.

Another fall trend that I love- Clogs.  There is one pair that I have had my eye on for a while.

Maxi skirts are transitioning into wardrobes this fall also.  You have to make sure it's not a summery one though. I love maxi skirts because I love the bohemian feel but this trend won't be for everyone.

I love this plaid one. I also love the way they have it styled.

A plain skirt is also a good way to go. This one from Forever 21 is very affordable and can be worn in tons of ways.

Over the knee socks are a trend that I have been seeing EVERYWHERE.  You can't walk through a mall or look in a fashion magazine without seeing them.  I personally won't be adopting this trend but to each his own, right?  I think it looks precious on some people(like this model below), but on me this would be terrible.

That pretty much wraps up my thoughts on the trends for fall.  Most of these I have already added to my wardrobe!  The weather has been cooler here the past week so I have even been able to start wearing some of them! Boots weather is here.. woohoo!!
 Have a good rest of the week!!
