Every year, the age old "what dress do I wear for my birthday?!?!" panic sets in and I set out on the hunt to find the perfect little party dress. I usually find something I like, but it's never anything I havetohave, ya know? Here, take a look back on some of my previous birthday fashion mishaps.

21- Obvs towards the end of the night...probably a smart idea to wear jeans...

22-Totally rocked the feathers and big hair that night...

23- VIP in a LBD...

24- Hot mess in a tight skirt and tank (gotta give myself credit-2 months post-baby)...

25- Jeans and a tee-spent the night playing Quelf and going midnight swimming...

So here we are, about to celebrate 26 and feeling the need to break out a killer outfit and have one word come to mind when my husband sees me...


So here are a couple runners-up (runner-uppers? runner-ups?), thoughts?

Evening News Backless Neon Pink DressEvening News Backless Neon Pink Dress
I'm just loving the back of this neon pink dress from Lulu's, it'd definitely be perfect for a night out, not too dressy, but not too casual either-I think I'd fit in ok around here, considering the local uniform is Wranglers, flannel, and shitkickers. 

Just Playin' Mint Green RomperJust Playin' Mint Green Romper
Are you noticing a pattern here? Kinda obsessed with the backless look. I don't know if it's because my back is one of the few body parts I still like, or if I'm just feeling the need to show some skin, but either way, this romper is HAWT. Love the minty green and the deep v-neck in the front. This would be super sexy with some platform heels and bangles. Mmmm...

Summer Breeze Strapless Green Dress
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the color of this one, and I love how casual it is too. I'm thinking funky bracelets (a TON) and some super strappy wedges. Oh, and hair def needs to be in a messy bun, right? ;)

So, I'm still hunting, but that neon pink dress is still at the top of my list. I'm kinda sorta in love.

Why, hello there!

Oh goodness, it's been awhile!

I feel guilty that I've been away for so long, but my job has been insane lately and I haven't had a real, full-blown, day off in forevs, and company just left, so I'm trying to regain my sanity!

Just a little update...I'm still working on the freelance thing, but it gets expensive, so I'm just taking it slow. I had my first referral, but since I had to work (she was going to the ball-TODAY!), I invited her in to the store and did her make-up at my counter. She looked amazing-and to top it off, she had just lost a BUNCH of weight from gastric bypass, so this was one of the first times she got all dolled up. I was so honored to be able to "share" that moment with her and allow her to feel sexy and confident. I hope she has a blast tonight! 

Anywho, I haven't really had time to do a whole lot of online shopping lately, but now that the hubs and nugget are both sound asleep (L in his bed, J on the floor, and Harvey sleeping next to him), I have a little time to browse.

What are you lusting after right now? Share!

I'm kinda obsessed with this Big Bang Skirt from Tobi...and the gray top with it is perfect! There's also some fun dresses and leggings in the same type of pattern-so unexpected and fun!

Big Bang Skirt in Purple

Two things I love here, a sexy bodysuit and lace shorts. Can't do any wrong with that combo!

Rockin' Body Suit  in Black

Doesn't this outfit look supes comfy? The shorts look perfect for a weekend out. I'm always searching for something comfortable enough to be in all weekend, but still stylish. I doubt I could wear the top during the hot Summer months, but I think it's absolutely perfect for the cooler late Summer/early Autumn months!

 Bubbly Shorts in Taupe

Ya'll know I love a good romper and this one is no exception! The color blocking is amazeballs, you can never go wrong with pink and blue! I'd spice it up with a sexy stiletto or wedge, and some fun bangles-no necklace though, let your neckline and collarbone shine with a little bit of bronzer!

Fun Day Romper in Fuchsia and Royal Blue

So there you have latest lusts.

I'll hopefully be back tomorrow, but I've got another loooong day of work ahead of me!

Things are still in the beginning stages, but I'm going to start doing freelance make-up work! I've been thinking about it for awhile now, and finally just took the plunge. I'm slowly building my kit and building my clientele base, but I am SO excited to start doing this!
