Meet Kevin!

During Christmas vacation my little brother, Jimmi adopted a 5 year old Nebelung cat for Paul and I. Technically your really not supposed to adopt cats and give them away lol but my brother has a big big heart and he knew that Paul and I were devastated over the loss of Nemo. I had no idea what he was doing until he showed up at my apartment with a big box that had breathing holes in it (typical behavior in my family). Paul and I decided to keep the cat, and despite all of my efforts to come up with a pretty, fancy name for him we just kept coming back to Kevin. I know, I know, what kind of a name is Kevin for a cat? but the reason we settled for this is because of the movie UP and Kevin’s playful personality. You can watch the clip below which inspired his name.

Kevin is fitting into our family perfectly! He slept on our bed the first night like he had known us for years. I am so excited for our new addition to the Miller family. Above are some pictures of our beautiful new cat. Stay tuned for more photos and stories of Kevin as he has quite the personality.

Pink ombré

So there is this dress that I purchased at LUCKY DRY GOODS >>> a thrift store in Ballard, and well I still have some ideas for it's transformation, but I really wanted a chance to slip it on. SO, I styled it as a skirt for a quick shoot. I was trying to come up with a catchy name for it but all I could think of was Clara ate the Sugar Plum Fairy?!?!?!? and that just isn't so nice. Anyways, basically I just wanted to start being fearless again in my own personal fashion, and that usually means throwing things together. So here is my first concoction, do you have any fashion ideas? You should try them! 

Happy Holidays!

Art Is Important!

I am working on research for my Adult Learning class and I came across this video. I wanted to share it as this is how I feel about the arts. I can say that if it wasn't for the arts I do not think I would have made it as far into my education as I have. It is so important to support the arts in our communities and schools and here are some reasons why...

Black friday steals

Even though I spent Thanksgiving on the beautiful Washington Coast, I still could not resist Black Friday, although, this time I did my crazy shopping online. This year I decided to find a dress for the holidays and thanks to Ruche I was able to purchase this powder blue cuteness. I am thinking it can be an easy holiday dress by accenting with red. 

Then I came upon this super cute purse on Nordstrom's site which to me looks like something you would purchase from Anthropology but way less expensive. I am in desperate need of a bag since Grad School’s books destroyed my last one...

Anyways, Paul and I plan to have a romantic night out in Seattle soon so stay tuned for pretty styled pics of this pale blue gown!

P.S. Normal purchase total $200.00 Black Friday total $49.00 >>> gotta love good deals!!!

Happy Holiday Shopping!
