I signed up for elsie*cakesRetro Beauty School E-course today! I can't wait to read all the fun lessons and get inspired for a little makeover, Betty Draper style! (speaking of which, I think I might be the only person alive not actually watching Mad Men yet, but I plan on jumping on the bandwagon soon, very soon!)
Today was a great day, just went by way too fast! This morning was spent dreaming and brainstorming, and then I went all sweat shop style making some headbands this afternoon (I'll post some pics soon) before heading out to my folks for QT.
so, seeing how my 27th birthday is only 2 months and some change away, i am a bit late to get this started, but i figure better late than never, right? this little idea is from the ever inspiring elsie*cake over at a beautiful mess. some of my goals may seem a bit lofty, while others are probably just plain silly (like #3), but nonetheless, it's my list.
today jb and i trekked about an hour north to st. augustine, our nation's oldest city, for a little day trip. it was so much fun and i came home super inspired!
we started off at one of our oldest and favorite haunts, the surf-station, home to one of the best collections of surfboards on the east coast. this store was converted from a gas station in the 70's.
then we had to get some nalu's fish tacos for lunch, yum!
i always want to hit up this rad store, the closet, in downtown st. auggie. the store consists of vintage finds as well as tons of handmade goods from locals, many of who are students of flagler college.
check out what came home with me...
the first piece is like a house dress with a zipper down the front and while it needs some serious hemming, it will be so cozy in the winter. the purple dress is a cute cut, and looks like it has already been slightly altered, but I am going to take up the hem a bit more to hit above the knee. also, i want to add a button to the front of the little crochet vest! all the closet's vintage goods were 40% off, so i got these two amazing scarves, plus one more for $3 each! score!
and since it was so hot, we ended our afternoon with a little bit of gelato!
it was such a fun day, and a much needed inspiration boost!
one of the beauties of adulthood... if blueberry and cake batter froyo is what i desire for dinner, froyo i shall have ;) last night we just weren't super hungry after having a late lunch, so we decided to be a bit naughty and just skip dinner and go right to dessert!
we had a fun evening at The Pavilion eating our froyo by the fountain!
