Springtime Inspiration

In Florida were already moving towards summer with the weather lately!
Springtime is my favorite time of year especially here in Florida!
Probably because it was the time of year I was born.

To me of course Springtime is renewal but it's also time of year for colors. sunglasses, sunscreen, swimsuits, flip-flops and the beach! Not necessarily in that order. I love there's new possibilities in the air! For inspiration during this time of year I looked for nature, colors, and fashion.
Here's a few things I've found inspiring!

Weekend Inspiration

I always think spring time weekends in Florida should be snacking, watching Netflix marathons, crafting, going to the beach, working out at the Y, and sitting in a hammock in the afternoon reading a luscious book!

What do my weekends ally look like? Extra sleep, watching marathon Netflix shows, going to the Y, getting a bit of sun and lots of snacking.

Well my New Year's resolution is to change that crafting fun in the mix LOL! And here's an inspiration for this weekend!

Blow a wish!

Definitely beaching it!

Creativebug Awesomeness!

I'm a big fan of online craft classes! You can watch them at your convenience in your pajamas with a cup of tea or sitting outside in the cabana! Sweet!

I've been a long time member of Craftsy online classes! with Craftsy you purchase a class one at a time. Craftsy does have sales and sometimes as much as half-price off and you keep the courses for the rest of your life! Like I have classes from three years ago. That I haven't watched yet, and I plan on doing this year!!

But with Creativebug it's a little different. You join for $4.95 a month!!! I know isn't that cheap or what! And you get to view unlimited classes. And during your month of viewing you can download one class for free that you keep for the rest of your life. I like that because I can view the class and decide if it's something that I do you want to own.
There are so many classes on Creativebug! And they seem to fit me better. I feel like it's more like aka Molly Makes magazine approved site (l…

Short hair Don't Care part two

Now that I've had shorthair for a little over six months I can say I'm really enjoying it! It's not so much the hair cut as it is the color that I keep changing! It just seem like I can't get the right shade of blonde for my skin color, eyes etc.

It also could be that I'm not a natural blonde it has to come from a bottle aka highlights or all over color.


My stylist I call her because every time Sandy see's my hair she's like we must trim it our tweak this color or that. She's really good and I luv her! Finally my haircut is growing out from the cruise fiasco where I had my hair trimmed or should I say chopped in November.

Just wanted to post the variations on the cut and the color LOL I do love a good pixie, but for me I'd like it to be a longer look.

I'm truly not narcissus lol. I know this is lots of selfies of me. Just really about hair and what we grow through (lol) to sometimes get look we want!

Initial cut all my highlights went…
