oy with the poodles already

I'm having a Gilmore Girls marathon. I really do love this show! I'm now on season 5, that's how uneventful my life is right now. By the way, Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel are way too pretty for their own good. I wish I had blue eyes, darn brown eyes for being a dominant gene.

Emily: You were on the phone?
Richard: Long distance. 
Lorelai: God? 
Richard: London. 
Lorelai: God lives in London? 
Richard: My mother lives in London. 
Lorelai: Your mother is God? 
Richard: Lorelai... 
Lorelai: So, God is a woman. 
Richard: Lorelai. 
Lorelai: And a relative. That's so cool. I'm gonna totally ask for favors. 
Richard: Make her stop. 
Rory: Oh, that I could.

feliz navidad!


I hope everyone is having a very merry Christmas!! 

This picture is from Christmas Day 2004, when it actually snowed. It was the first time here in a 100 years! 




I don't know if anyone really pays any attention to my blog, but if you do I'm sorry that I have neglected it. I have a good excuse, I promise! I was spending my last few college days with friends, packing, and waiting for the day that I would officially become an alum! I'll post pictures of it later, when I actually find the stupid thing to upload my pictures which is packed away somewhere. Hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday break!

marry me


Please tell me someone watched the lifetime movie, Marry Me, tonight?! Wasn't it great?? It was such a cute movie and had great dialogue for a tv movie. I thought it would be cheesier than it was...but it was just the right amount of cheesiness. haha. I thought the pug kind of stole the show though. If you haven't watched it....you should!

Speaking of weddings I saw some really amazing ones on some blogs...
Santorini wedding!!! Ah so amazing!

I just love the dress and the rings of this Austin wedding!

The church is just sooo nice and original. I also love the groom's cake! I'll forgive them for being Longhorn fans. Haha. Wedding took place in Wimberly, Texas.

I really think that event/wedding planning could be a fun career to have....hmmm maybe.

purple and pink

Okay sooo I saw this loft on another blog and then went to go look at the website, Mi Casa. This loft is still my favorite out of all the others! I think I should live here! :)

It's just so very pretty! I want a loft like this one.

wonderland wardrobe


Ruche possibly has some of the prettiest lookbooks on the internet.

I just love it! Don't you??? :)

Well it was my last day of college classes yesterday and I have a final on Friday and then two on Saturday. After that I'll be done!! Will officially be done with college in 10 days!

Weekend in Santorini


So I'm feeling nostalgic. Possibly because I spent 6 hours of my life talking about studying abroad on Saturday and realized that this past weekend, last year, I spent it in Santorini, Greece. It's a beautiful place, even more beautiful than pictures or movies ( the one that specifically comes to most minds, at least for girls, the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants). I loved it and I wish I could be there again.

These pictures are all taken by me. I think most of my pictures from Santorini are possibly the best ones from all the places I visited.

You may have possibly thought I have some Greek heritage in me, with the curly hair and all, but I am not. A lot of Greek people thought I was from Greece as well, so I'm very glad that I learned "signomi, then milao Ellinika," which means "sorry, I don't speak Greek." I used it often. :)

Hope you have a wonderful week!

december love


So as a way to keep ignoring the fact that I actually do have homework (not like it's very much, I may just end up doing it tomorrow during my break), I keep looking at blogs and writing posts. :)

To commemorate the start of lovely December, this post is about all the things I love about this month.

1. cinnamon
Cinnamon is seriously the best scent ever! At home, my mom gets these cinnamon broomsticks for the house, at least 2 or 3, and it makes the whole house smell amazing! It automatically reminds me of cold weather and Christmas.

2. hot chocolate
photo from purl soho
I loveeeeeeee hot chocolate! Add about a billion marshmallows and it's possibly one of the most delicious things on the planet. I've never been a coffee drinker, so hot chocolate is it when the weather even remotely hits below 65. (Hey, I'm from Texas!)

3. scarves + coolish weather = awesome
Scarves have always been a favorite accessory of mine. They can add a punch of color when needed and I just think they can add dimension to an outfit. Anyway I love them and have wayyyyy tooo many of them as well! :)

4. Twinkle lights
I think the holidays are just the prettiest time of year. All the lights on houses, buildings, and around the town in general! The world becomes a twinkle lights wonderland for just awhile and it adds magic to the season.

I love all this and much more! I hope you all have a fantastic December! Don't forget to watch the 25 days of Christmas on abc family. :)

ps There is now only 16 days till my graduation...the countdown begins.

pps I take no credit for any of these pictures

sequins are fun

So I saw this outfit this morning, when I felt like death and should have been studying for my test that was at 3:30 pm, but blogs are just so much more fun to look at than my power point slides for Strategic Management. Yes, if I didn't already say it before (which I probably haven't) I'm majoring in Business Marketing and Management...and yes that class is as boring as it sounds. Anyway, this outfit I love! I
don't know if I would ever wear those shoes myself, but she definitely pulls them off.  Follow her blog, This Time Tomorrow!

So I'm going to finally put a little plug-in for mark, because I do sell it, technically even if I seem to be a terrible salesperson. They have really great, affordable makeup, accessories, and clothes which is always a great thing during gift-giving season! So go shop away at
mymarkstore.com/dsimons  :)

possibly my favorite ring from mark. :)

I really want this hat!
great red lipstick
this moisturizer is my fave, it has 30 spf.
this case comes with 9 eyeshadows and 9 lipglosses.
i love this bracelet and the money goes to charity! :)

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!

goodheart <3
