Say hello to BOLD colors, and prints ...

I loveee color a lot! This spring/summer, I am going to try to wear as much of it as possible! I just recently purchased a green high-waisted skirt, ( I can't wait to wear it with my wedges), gold and coral chandelier earrings, & a white chiffon tank..
I usually wear white shorts, with a little bit of color, but last year I wore a lot of navy blue, black, and white. So this year I need to spiff it up a little! I have always adored the tropical look, so why not try it out!
I believe bold colors, make you bright and cheery!
I wish I had a wardrobe like this below, all pictures from Self Magazine.

Do you own and coloful pieces?

Gas is INSANE!

Please join it on Facebook, and if you don't have a Face Book,
 that's fine, just don't go to any gas stations on Thursday!

Facebook has done some pretty amazing things. Anything from reuniting lost loves and old friends to creating a revolution in oppressed countries. I want to see if we can organize an event to reach as many people as possible to have a day designated to boycott all gas stations across the planet.
I know this has been tried before, but not since Facebook has become the phenomenon that it has. So, send this event to everyone on your friends list, and let's see if we can start our own revolution, by letting these oil companies know we aren't going to stand for these prices!
Simply avoid all gas stations on March 31, 2011. And if you can go one step further, don't even drive that day. Why not let Facebook help us spread the word? However, don't forget your local mom and pop shop. Go IN and buy something that day. Make a point of it!We're mad as hell, and are tired of watching the big oil companies laugh all the way to the bank while we all suffer. Let's do this!

Side note:
And since there seems to be so much confusion about what we are trying to do here, let me clarify now. This is NOT about thinking we are going to send gas prices plummeting downward because of this one day. This is about taking a stand, together, against greedy people whose commodity happens to affect ALL OTHER commodity's prices. What other commodity does that? Let's be the nation of innovators that we are and come up with something better!

'But who I want to be, still seems so faraway, but I know I'm going to get there someday'..

Hey you guys, I just wanted to show you all some pictures I took last Thursday. All these pictures were taken this on beautiful Plantation, called Huspah Plantation. There were gorgeous Horses, cute Pups, and an ass (yes, I am talking about a Donkey).
All these pictures were taken with a Nikon D3000.
These were taken while the sun was setting.
It was on the no flash setting. (Can't flash animals!)
I hope you enjoy all these gorgeous animals!

And.. wow, I finally have 100 followers, I can't believe it! Just knowing that I have 100 people following me, really makes my day! -Thanks you guys

I want to say seven things about myself, thank you..

Thank you The Rich Life (on a budget)  for giving my the Stylish Blogger Award!

Now I must write down seven things that you all might not know about me!
1. I just recently got my ears pierced, I have never ever gotten them pierced, and it has taken me 21 years to do so! I always liked being the only girl without earrings, but as I started growing up, and seeing pretty girls with gorgeous hanging earrings, I started to think.. 'I would look soo much better, if I had my ears pierced'. All it took was a bad day, and I was up for anything! - I went to Claire's in Tanger Outlets, squeezed a Teddy Bear, and ta da, had pierced ears less then 10 mins. Now I'm being bad, and wearing my mum's Tracy Porter earrings!

2. As I started doing more and more photography, I have lately not wanted any pictures taken of me.. I think it goes back to photographers, you usually never see pictures of them, unless it's them working. I love being in pictures with my friends, but I wish I was the person taking them. (Can I have a clone of myself, please). My job is to make people look good, and I wish people would do the same when taking pictures of me. I hate when people post horrible pictures of me, I make you look good, can't you do that for me? That's why I will stick to taking the pictures, and I'll stay out of them. . unless my little brother is taking them, he has a really good eye. It must run in the family!

3. I have an addiction to Frozen Chocolate Bananas! At Publix, (a grocery store that we have in the south), they have these tasty little Chocolate covered Banana's in the frozen isle. Well, when my mum and I first got a box, we devoured the whole thing before we got home! Ever since, we wait for those babies to get on sale, (buy one, get one free). Well, you know what, last week they were on sale, and yesterday was the last day for the sale, so we drove 30 mins away, and got over 10 boxes of Chocolate Bananas! Can you say yummmmm!

4. The one thing I'm deathly afraid of is one of the smallest things in the world, but yet one of the most deadliest! The Brown Recluse Spider. In the south, we have spiders, and a lot of them. Usually they are your common house spider, which I have grown to like, they stay in their little webs at the back door, and eat all the bugs.. but once in awhile, you will see a Brown Recluse. They just look creeeeeepy! Well last night, while I was putting my hand lotion and nightly gloves on, I saw something run from my trash can, it was a Brown Recluse! I screamed for my brother to come, of course the spider ran under my bed, and it was like we were playing hide-n-go-seek with this spider, my brother wanted to kill it, but me being the sweet person that I am, said 'NO, we must save it'! And we did :) But I am still scared of them.. I couldn't sleep last night, that's for sure. But at least I have good karma coming my way!

5. I can only live by water, that might not be a good thing in the near future, when it starts to flood, or disasters take place, but I have to! When I go in the country, I love it, but I start to get weirded out.. like, where's the water! I live right next to a river, and I live on an island, we are surrounded by salt water, and marsh. I just love it! We have a saying, 'I've the got the saltwater in my veins', and I sure do! In the future, when I find my rich husband (joke), I am going to live on the river, and have a pool, or at least a community pool. Some people think I'm part fish, just because I talk about it so much...

6. I have 2 really bad scars on each of my legs: both from stupid things. On my left leg I have a scar from a muffler burn, I was sitting outside of the YMCA with my girl friend, when this cute guy pulls up in a Volkswagen Beetle (vintage style), well when he got out of his car, my friend wanted to go talk to him, so we did. As we were standing there, the guy nudged me, and said 'stop being so quiet', well all of a sudden I smelt something burning, and sizzling, it was my leg being burned by his damn muffler! I looked down, and saw the skin.. yeah, I'll stop. Let's just say, it left a verrrrry bad scar! My second one happened down the street from my house, I was seeing a guy friend, and I was letting my dog, and his dogs play in the river. There we were standing on the floating dock, when all of a sudden we saw a gator slide down the pluff mud on the bank! He said 'go get our dogs' and pushed me in! Of course it was low tide, and I hit oysters.. what a great idea with a Gator in the water, our dogs swimming, and me now bleeding! Luckily the Gator was just swimming to a sandbar, but still.. it was scary, and I had to walk home bleeding! Oh and let me not forget, my mum told me not to go down there that day!

7. If I could wear anything, other then a bathing suit, it would be white shorts. I don't know what your 'signature piece of clothing' is, but mine is white shorts. I own over 5 pairs, I used to only one 2, and it killed me cause they were always being washed. But now, I have enough. I love them cause they can be casual, beachy, preppy, and even dressy. And you can wear any kind of top with them! I went from wearing a tank top, white shorts, sandals by day, to a long sleeve linen shirt, white shorts, and wedges by night. What is your favorite piece of clothing?

and now I'm done writing 7 things about myself!
 Now for you girls, I choose:

Have fun with your awards ladies!

I've got the beer, if you've got the boat!

What's better then spending the weekend on the sandbar...
It was my first weekend on the sandbar, and yes, i'm already addicted!
But don't think it was all perfect, ha ha.. oh boy, well you see, Jessica and myself were really excited about going on the river on Saturday, we met Wes, at the landing, and the boat was in the water, everything looked good, we loaded everything in, and when he went to crank it, it wouldn't start, well.. finally it did start, but it wouldn't go into the next gear, when it finally did, we pushed off the landing, well ... it turned off, there we were drifting into pluff mud. Thankfully, a nice older man and his wife, pulled us back to the landing. Wes called his friends to come look at the boat, so they came, looked at it, there was nothing they could do so they left, 'thanks for inviting us to come with you guys.. ' Jess and I said. Well Wes got annoyed, jumped in the river, and when he came back on the boat, he was like where are my glasses?.. yup he jumped in with them onwarning: Oakleys do not float! So we loaded it back up on the trailor, and just headed seperate ways. Well Wes called and asked if we wanted to meet downtown, and get picked up by those guys that came to look at it. We had nothing else to do, so why not! We met downtown, went over to the sandbar and ended up having a great time! We took pictures, had a few drinks, tanned, and even got thrown in the cold water!
 Later on that night we went out to eat at Upper Crust, and guess what, Wes put on my glasses, and they broke! So both of our glasses are broken.. oh well, atleast we all ended up having fun!
 I can't wait for next weekend, we are all going tubing! Yes, the water is cold, but hey.. 'drink a few beers and you wont even notice it's cold'.
Jess and I.

Jess, Wes, and I.

We are models by what Jess says.

On two jump, i'll click at three!

Pretty small crowd, which is always a good thing.
Tyler, Ryan, Wes, Me, Jess, and Chase.
What did you do this weekend?

I did it! I did it! I finally did it!

The pink bag says it all :)
After 21 years, I finally got my ears pierced! I can't believe it! Yesterday, my mum wanted to take a ride to Bluffton, to Tanger Outlets, well I went into Banana Republic, fell in love with multiple skirts, and tops.. looked around, and realized all the lovely younger women were dressed so well! They were all perfectly tanned, gorgeous hair, great clothes..blah blah blah. I looked in the mirror, EWW.. me: no make-up, hadn't taken a shower that day, (we went right after I got back from work..), and I was wearing plain white shorts, and a long sleeve Clemson t-shirt. Wow, I looked like I just got pulled out of a drain...

So there I was, not wanting to shop, cause I looked hideous. I told my mum, she laughed, said 'everyone is on spring break..', well as we walked past Claires, I said, 'we should go get my ears pierced, let's get it over with'. My mum, looked at me, and laughed, then she said 'really?' Then before I could say anything she said, 'yup, we're going go to get them pierced'. So I go in there, thankfully the woman was coming to her third year of piercing ears, good thing! Right when I agreed to do it, (to make my day worse), she said she needed to see my mum's ID! ..Ugh hello, I'm 21, thanksss. So there I was sitting in the hot seat, squeezing a teddy bear, she said I looked like I was about to cry.. no, I just looked bad, it what I wanted to tell her. But less then five mins, I had my ears pierced! It didn't even hurt! I was soo proud of myself, I finally did it!
But on a lighter note, i'll finally be wearing gorgeous earings, and stealing my mum's Tracy Porter earings!

All these gorgeous earings are from Tracy Porter!

The Bachelor Finale, wooo!

Hello Bachelor Fans!
So as you all know, tonight is the Bachelor Finale, it is time for Brad to choose his woman, will he go with big boobs, or the sweet southern girl in the world?
It's Emily, Yes, I'm soo glad he chose Emily! She is such a sweet, kind, gorgeous girl, and she needed this, if he didn't propose to her, I would have been highly upset! - She has had a hard time, and I think her finding someone to love/someone to love her, is what she needs, especially with her having such a little girl, she needs the love, and she sure does have a lot to give!
On the other hand, I feel so baddddd for Chantel.. that was so sad to watch him say what he did to her, that was definitely a stab in the heart! But that's love..
She will find someone to love her, she's a great girl!
 I wish for the best for both of the girls!

Who did you want him to choose?

Ok, UPDATE: Is it me, or was the after show awkward with Emily? If you are afraid to fall in love, with a man that is deeply in love with you, then why did you sign up?! LIKE REALLY...
She was acting soo weird on the after show, and I can tell that Brad was really nervous, I feel kinda bad, he fell in love with someone who we all thought was the sweetest girl in the world, and she doesn't even want to marry him.. ugh.. and Brad has a TEMPER! What the hell.. lol, these two just don't work, bring back Ashley H.! She was soo adorable.
 Oh Chantel, at least you found somone.. hopefully.

Hello, I think i'll relax today..

La, today was just one of those relaxed, do whatever you want kinda days..
so what did I do? I went to The Sands Beach with my brother's girlfriend, and Jason (my ex, yes, we are still great friends). We like to go there instead of driving 30 mins out to the 'actual' beach, The Sands Beach is just a little beach that's in town, it's a great place to tan, and let the pups run around and play. After we got our tan on for 45 mins, we jumped in the truck and headed off to the movies, to go see Red Riding Hood. It was pretty good, the guys in it are definitely eye candy- mmmm! But in a weird way I thought it was going to be different.. oh well, I would just watch it more for the boys in it! After that, we bought pizza, came home, made it, then watched the lastest episode of America's Next Top Model. After that, we watched Rumor Has It, with my other man, Kevin Costner.. we watched a lot of movies today.
 Don't you just love relaxing, do what ever you want kinda days?

Ps. we got new bathing suits, the one on the left (mine) is from Victoria Secret. Hers is from Target, and the bottoms were only $6 at Wal-Mart!
