Pellet Guns!

Hey guys! Last week we decided to go into the dollar store and just look around out of boredom. We were just wandering around looking at things, and of course we ended up in the toy section, playing with all the little toys and making noises. This is not the first time we've done this. I promise we will grow up eventually. Anyways, when we left, we didn’t leave empty handed. I mean, how can you leave a dollar store without buying something.
Here are a few of the things we found and decided we liked it enough to bring it home with us. 
(Note that everything isn’t a dollar in the dollar store we were in, but still pretty cheap.)

Kelsey -
First up was this temporary tattoo art. I may be too old for this but I don’t care. These are so cute, they have this egyptian or tribal look which made me want it. :) 

Next up is this lovely scarf. It was only 6 dollars so I thought, why not. Plus, you can never have too many scarves in the winter. 
We came across the jewelry section and they actually had some really nice stuff. I found this starfish necklace and had to get it. Again, i mean, 6 bucks! Why not?! I can’t wait to wear it. 

Kenecha -
I love this temporary tattoo art so I had to get it. Out of the few different choices, this one was my favourite. I love the designs. I can't wait to try them out.
I really liked this necklace and thought it was really cool so I thought why not get it. 
Also, we both saw these and thought they were really cute. It's just three velvet srunchies, one gold, one silver, and one just a basic black velvet. They feel really nice and comfortable and it's defiantly something we would use so of course we bought them.
And lastly, how could we leave without buying something from the toy section. Pellet guns. That’s what we bought *face palm*. We were outside in the snow shooting them around, using someone’s house as target practice, whoops! Anyways, it was a fun day and we’ll probably do it again one day in the future and buy more pointless toys that we don’t need. Oh well. :) 
Bang, Bang!

Beauty Is All Around Us.

Today I thought I would step away from the usual outfit/makeup post and show you some photo's I took over the last few years. 
Everyone I know seems to have all these kinds of talents and I seem to have none, I love to take pictures of nature or anything I find beautiful, I know these photo's aren't anything too special but I love to capture things that make me happy. I mean I guess taking photo's isn't really a talent but it one thing I am decent at.
Hope you all enjoy :)

Love walking by this view.

 Believe it or not these lovely flowers were found in my sister's backyard.

 This iceberg was HUGE! 

 These last two are of animals. How beautiful is this eagle? 

& how cute are these baby duckies with momma duck? :) 

What makes you happy?

Florals & Smiles!

Last night I decided to paint my nails! I haven't done this since early november so I decided it was time. Of course, I had no idea what to do with them. In the end I decided to do something involving our blog name. And this was what I came up with! :)
It's obviously not perfect. This is the first time I have ever painted florals on my nails. 
But i'm still happy with the result. Here's the closeup where you get to see all the mistakes...
Also, I thought it matched my sweater pretty well, even though it was total coincidence that I was wearing this sweater while painting a smiley face on my nail. 
So, there you have it, "Florals & Smiles"
I hope you like it! x

Animal Prints!!

Hey Guys!! This week we incorporated some animal print into our looks! :) 
I love this crop top with the high neckline. Of course, I had to wear a shirt in under because it's winter and I don't want to freeze. I styled it with the short red cardigan which gives it a more sophisticated, yet fashionable look. I'm also wearing a pair of faux leather jeans and completed my look with a pair of pointy-toe flats! :)

With my look I paired it with my fave yellow sweater, the shirt I am wearing is actually a tank top so it gives me some warmth, but really I am always warm so I don't really need it haha :P 

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Stripes & Florals.

Anyone else like me and have a whole bunch of headbands? Over the years I seemed to have collected quite a few of those. Recently I have been enjoying the cloth ones, so comfy and they come in so many different prints. I thought why not show off one of my faves:

This one has a floral detail and I am obsessed. It has the little twisty bump on the front which seems a little hard to see but it makes it so much cuter.
Oh also I just recently got this black lipstick and I am inlove with it! Anyone else love darker lipstick? Or headbands?

My Winter Essentials.

Hey guys, Today I decided to share with you some of my Winter Essentials. So, this is everything I need to have during the winter. And since It’s been getting REALLY cold here lately, and the snow has finally fallen, I can’t live without these things.

First up : Obviously, since it’s been cold, All I have really worn lately are sweaters and cardigans, literally. I love this oversized cardigan because It’s really warm and comfortable, and I love the pattern. I would not be able to live without it, or any other sweater I own lately. A good, warm sweater or cardigan is very important.
When I go outside, I get cold so quickly. I have to be bundled up as much as I can. You would think my body would have adapted to colder weather where I live, but for some reason, I still get the shivers like mad. I’ve been wearing plenty of cozy scarves to keep me warm. This one, especially, I’ve been loving so much. IT’s SOOO Warm, and so big. And it has a really nice colour. 
Continuing on with keeping warm, I would not even attempt to go outside without gloves and a warm hat. My hands always go numb after a minute. So, yeah, gloves are essential. I love the pattern in these ones. Also, these kind of fingerless gloves are my favourite. I own a bunch because regular gloves do not seem to keep my fingers warm at all. My hands still go numb. So, I like these kind to keep my hands warm and cozy. ;)
My Ears also get really cold, so I need a good hat or headband to keep them warm. This white hat has been my favourite for SO long. It fits my head really comfortably and it looks so cute. It also goes with everything because it’s white. This was the best thing I ever bought when it comes to my hats. It's defiantly a one that I use every winter.
Literally, With all the snow lately, you really need a good pair of snow boots. Even just for walking in. I bought these a few years ago and I still wear them every winter. They’re big and warm and I just love stomping through the snow in them. Some mornings, when the roads are horrible, these have helped me so much. So, yeah, A good pair of boots are a good thing to have during the winter.
Seriously, how could you go through the winter season without a pair of cozy socks. Sometimes, it gets very cold and you want to keep your toes nice and warm. ;)
Moving on. My skin gets really dry in the winter. So, it helps to have a good moisturizer. I don’t have a particular one that I really love. This one is a new one I’ve only just begun using because I really needed one. But, yeah, moisturizers in the winter are a definite must for me.
I like to keep my lips moisturized as well and my favourite lip balm would have to be mabeline’s "baby lips". The Aquafina one works nicely as well, but I prefer the green “peppermint” baby lips one over anything. I buy so many of them. Out of all the baby lips collection, that one and the “Oh! Orange!” one is my favourite. I Literally can’t live without them.
I know this post is getting pretty long but I’m almost done, I promise. Hot Chocolate is one of my favourite things to drink in the winter. Especially after a cold day, I love a good hot chocolate to warm me up. Plus, it taste really good. I would consider this a winter essential. :)
And last but not least is my happy jar. I’m not really sure why I call it that, I defiantly need a more unique name because it deserves it. But, yeah, I like to have a huge jar of sweets in my room to eat throughout the winter. Plus, nobody else complains as they are always eating them too. I put all of my favourite chocolates in there so that’s why I call it my “happy” jar. I know, i’m so clever. 

So, there you have it. These are my main winter essentials that I like during the winter. What is one thing that you absolutely have to have during the winter? Let me know in the comments below. :)

Winter Happiness.

Simple post today. I was out in the snow yesterday and was loving it. It snowed overnight and when I woke up I felt like a kid on Christmas. It didn't take long for my niece and the dogs to go out and enjoy it.

  Also took this shot while we were out. How beautiful is winter? I could just look at this all day.
Anyone else enjoy the snow/winter as much as me? 
Hope the rest of your week is great!

The Dreamer

Do you ever just look up at the sky and watch the clouds pass by? Looking for faces and shapes are the fun part. And do you ever find yourself just drifting off, entering another world and just imagining all these amazing things? I do, all the time. I day dream. I find myself staring up at the sky and smiling. I think of all these amazing and beautiful things I want in life. It’s not that I don’t love what I have, or love where my life is at the moment. It’s just, I like hoping. Hoping for a great future. 

Do you ever look up into the night sky and just stare at the stars? It’s a beautiful time to think. A beautiful time to dream. It makes you forget about everything else for just a moment. I have a very imaginative and creative mind and I like to make up different fantasy worlds in my head. A beautiful place where I am brave. Where I am confident. I like to pretend i’m a warrior or a hero, battling for good. I imagine i’m in a forest surrounded by the tallest of trees. A beautiful ray of sunshine peeking through the spaces. I imagine walking through a long beautiful path where the trees bend over slightly on each side creating a roof. There are beautiful flowers of purple and yellow and white lining the side of the path. If you listen closely, you can hear them sing. I also see these large butterflies, with wings larger than your hand. They are glowing and they leave a colourful, magic mist as the fly from one flower to another. The air is perfect and easy to breathe. It gives me so much energy. At the end of the path there is a bright light, and a rainbow-like mist. It makes it impossible to look past. But, it’s beautiful. I imagine it holds something amazing, if only I’d walk through. I haven’t created this place yet. Maybe i’m not ready. Maybe, I’m afraid it won’t be as great as I thought it was. But, it’s my hope. My dream. Where my life will lead me to one day. And, one day, I will be brave. I will be ready. I will no longer just be, “the dreamer”. 

Sorry, guys. This is a little different, I hope you don’t mind. But, I mean, how boring would the mind be if you could not dream? So, that was a sneak peek at my perfect place. What does yours look like (real life or made up (: )

Headband Love.

Headbands are my favourite things to wear in the colder weather. My ears always get cold instantly and these keep my my ears nice and warm. I thought I'd express my love for them here in today's post. :)

This one is probably my favourite one. It's so warm and also the most simple in its appearance.
The White one is the oldest one I own. But, It's so adorable. I love the flower detail and how it looks. Also, it's white so it goes so much better with everything.
This one is a little different. The front is a lot wider but still very cute. This one also has the flower detail which I like. I also love how it kind of looks like a hat from the front. Oh, and it fits so comfortably and it's so soft. I often forget i'm wearing it. 
I really love the colour and style of this one. I'm thinking it's probably my favourite one that I own, but I do love the other ones as well. It fits really nice, as well. 

So, there you have it. I'm in love. It's always nice to keep warm when you go outside and with the freezing weather around here lately, I defiantly can't go outside without one of my headbands. My ears or hands are probably the first thing to get cold, probably within 10 seconds. 
Anyone else wear these as well? 

Let me know your opinions on them in the comments! :D
