I tried my hand at galaxy nails again for the second time, and I was so pleased with how they came out! I didn't have any black nail polish so I had to make my own. The first time I did them I used the darkest color I had and it just didn't work out. I made my own black nail polish by mixing some black eye shadow I haven't worn in years and some clear nail polish and bam! I had black nail polish! They didn't last very long because it was sooo many layers but I love them nonetheless.

This outfit is one of my absolute favorites now! A family friend of ours said I looked like a sunflower and that might just be the best darn complement I've gotten in awhile. The photos are a little poopy because it looked like this outside:
Which doesn't really tell you anything, because it isn't clear that it is pouring down rain. Which made it really dark and my camera is the biggest baby in the world in low light situations. It's color gets funky and it gets heavy with the grainy-ness and it just cannot decide what it wants to focus on! So this is the best you get. It was nice getting a light mist the entire time I was taking these photos though. Also, I really love how green everything gets while its raining! Also also, I am so smitten by the hanging basket that is behind me in the first two pictures. It has the cutest little flowers in it.

My Nikon Fun Touch 6 is my favorite cheap little film camera. I'm actually lying, the Lomo Fisheye is. But the Fun Touch is definitely a close second, and I'm pretty sure I use it a lot more than the Fisheye now! Anyways, here is the first roll I shot with it back in September. These photos are responsible for the instant love I felt for this camera. Also, does anyone know how deep fried kool-aid works? I'm still confused about that...

I found a book at goodwill the other day when looking for books to sacrifice for an invisible bookshelf that is really freaking awesome. I picked it up because it was the exact kind of book I was looking for for the project, but then I realized what it was and I might have peed my pants a little bit from excitement. It was Reader's Digest's ABCs Of Nature! How neat! There was no way I could ruin this book for the project, but I still bought it for my own enjoyment.
It has so much information in it, and it has such nice illustrations in it! This is definitely one of the best things I've come across in a thrift store, and it was completely by accident!

I love Walmart's clearance rack in their shoe department. LOVE. IT. I've been eyeballing these brown faux suede loafers for a little while now, they've been on clearance forever. I wish I would have waited just a little longer to get them though and maybe I would have gotten them even cheaper, they were marked down to $7 when I bought them.
Now on to the outfit! Sorry, I just had to confess my love for cheap shoes at Walmart real quick. Anyways, I really love this skirt but I'm an idiot for wearing such a heavy skirt on such a hot day! It sure is a nice skirt to have during the winter though. This necklace (like 89.9% of the jewelry I own) was my grandmothers. My family was cleaning out her house after she died and of course the first thing I went for was the jewelry box. My cousin and I found two of these necklaces that were exactly the same so she has one and I have one :) Now this shirt... I love this shirt so much because I also love my bike so much! She's a beauty! And she has a nice, wide seat and she's a gorgeous color. I didn't even think about taking pictures with her until right this second, bummer! But you can click here to see what kind of bike I have. That baby was my best friend for awhile. I haven't rode it since I moved to the mountains (I'm terrified to ride it on these hilly, curvy, narrow roads!) and that makes me pretty sad, especially now since the tires are flat and the handle bars are collecting rust. When I lived in Mo though, I rode it all the time! The farthest I went on it was 20 miles (there and back, so 40 all together). I also lost 30 pounds the summer my bike and I were attached at the hip. One day, though, I'm going to fix it up and she'll look brand new and I'll hop on and we'll ride into the sunset and live happily ever after.
