Lucy Hale and the Pretty Little Liars

I love the ABC Family show Pretty Little Liars. Lucy Hale is such a great actress, not to mention gorgeous. Her hair always looks like she just had it done. How in the world does that happen?? Not to mention, the girl has style! I've loved her since she was on the short lived show Privileged. Here are some great pics of Lucy.
Lucy and Pretty Little Liars co-star Ashley Benson are in new Bongo ads.

Oops, I Went To TJ MAXX...

I had a few minutes to waste this afternoon, so I saw no better time to visit TJ Maxx. Two of my favorite purchases:

So these are Ugg wedges. I had no idea Uggs made anything other than boots. Here is a picture I found on Zappos of them:
Amazon had them listed at $140! I got mine for half of that! They were oddly comfortable and I'm pretty sure they will go with a ton.

I have been wanting a cross body purse for awhile now. This Sak purse is big enough to hold all my stuff. Sooo glad I found this!

Happy early Friday!!!!!!

Who's Ready For Dessert?

Not me, I just had a chocolate chip cookie. However, if you are offering strawberry cake, I'm in. There is a restaurant called, Newk's Express Cafe, that has the best strawberry cake EVER. It is homemade strawberry cake! I highly recommend it. Newk's website: www.newkscafe.com

Here is a Paula Deen's Simply Delicious Strawberry Cake from The Food Network. Let's be real, if Paula Deen has a dessert recipie, chances are it is calorie filled. So, if you are on a diet, BEWARE.

Paula Deen's Simply Delicious Strawberry Cake:


  • 1 (18.25-ounce) box white cake mix
  • 1 (3-ounce) box strawberry-flavored instant gelatin
  • 1 (15-ounce) package frozen strawberries in syrup, thawed and pureed
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup water
  • Strawberry cream cheese frosting, recipe follows
  • Strawberry Cream Cheese Frosting
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 (10-ounce) package frozen strawberries in syrup, thawed and pureed
  • 1/2 teaspoon strawberry extract
  • 7 cups confectioners' sugar
  • Freshly sliced strawberries, for garnish, optional


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease 2 (9-inch) round cake pans.
In a large bowl, combine cake mix and gelatin. Add pureed strawberries, eggs, oil, and water; beat at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth. Pour into prepared pans, and bake for 20 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Let cool in pans for 10 minutes. Remove from pans, and cool completely on wire racks.
For the frosting:
In a large bowl, beat butter and cream cheese at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Beat in 1/4 cup of the strawberry puree and the vanilla extract. (The rest of the puree is leftover but can be used in smoothies or on ice cream for a delicious treat.) Gradually add confectioners' sugar, beating until smooth.
Spread frosting in between layers and on top and sides of cake. Garnish with sliced fresh strawberries, if desired.

I'm Looking For A New Hair Dooooo

Ok, so nothing drastic, but new nonetheless. A few ladies with envy worthy hair... 

I love Selena's ever changing hair styles.
Victoria's Secret hair is the best. Loose, soft curls that look like this? Yes please.

I would love this if I didn't have a cowlick. It totally ruins the idea of flawless bangs.

I would love this much body and curl. I would not love the time it takes to get it.

If I ever dye my hair, I'm going to either do Ashlee's old color or Mandy Moore's dark brown.

I liked Mandy with blonde hair, but I think the brunette color just suits her so well.

My hope is to have layers and highlights by this weekend. The search for a hair stylist begins!

Sunday's Color Change...

I decided to go back to the place that did a solid job on my manicure a couple of weeks ago. I'm glad I did, because they did a great job. Since it is officially flip-flop and sandal weather, I opted for a pedicure and a simple color change on my nails.

The first two pictures make the polish look more red than it acutally is and the last picture looks more pink than it actually is! It is more of a neon pink with a good hint of orange tone (to me). I really like it. Plus, now that I have my toes done, I won't have to get them re-done for awhile.

Happy Sunday night!

Kristin Cavallari

I love the beachy, casual, but still super cute look. In my opinion, few people do it as well as Kristin Cavallari. Kristen came onto the radar years ago on the MTV show Laguna Beach. I like her and her style now more than ever.

She looks great in all of these pics! Love her and hope to see more of her style for years to come!

Isn't this a cool shot? Gorgeous!

Thank Gosh Tomorrow Is Friday

Thank gosh tomorrow is Friday! This has been a longgg week, with today being the longest possible day ever. I thought I was going to go nuts at one point. Anywho, I'm topping today off with cookies and cream ice cream and Real Housewives of OC reruns. Sometimes ya gotta take it easy, ya know?

That's right, this stuff is delicious.

I did find time to exercise today! Before you know it, I'll end up looking like this:

I know, I'm laughing too. This is Victoria Secret's angel Candice. I got it from her twitter which is filled with prettiness (@angelcandice).

TOMS or Converse

I'd like some casual shoes. The one's that come to mind are Toms and Converse shoes. They don't necessarily have to be those brands, but I want something similar to those looks.
