First day of school!

*YAWN* Hey, guys! Today was my first official day of school! I am now in high school. :) My mom always spices up the first day of school with a little present bag for all of us, and today was no exception! I got blue and green themed pens and paper and stuff and even a cherry Pepsi! Thanks, Mama for being an amazing teacher. I love being homeschooled by you. You are my best friend and I'm always learning new things from you.

My subjects are.....Biology, Algebra 2, Lit Analysis (with Landry Academy), Interior Design (Landry Academy also), Geography, American History, Spanish 4, BBW, and Bible!

Did any of you start today? What are your subjects?

Downton Abbey Fashion

Let's go back to a time when fashion was just as important as it is today. It is a time when dresses were all women wore, and the fashions were more modest. Let's look at some of the fashion of Downton Abbey, shall we?

This scarlet embroidered dress is gorgeous. I wish we still dressed like this! Now, all the dresses are too short to wear. This screams elegance.
Edith's dusty rose dress on the left is gorgeous. I love the elegant sleeves, the way it drapes, and the color. Mary's dress in the middle is beautiful. The femininity of the skirt and the sleeves makes it even more beautiful. Sybil's dress is my favorite of all the ones on the show!! I love the color and the style of it. Sybil rocks. ;)

This drop-waist flapper-style gown is cute! I love the sheer strip of fabric that hangs down, and the color is pretty on Edith.
Oh my goodness, I love the hats!! Especially Edith's hat. Mary's dress is gorgeous with a light blue pinstripe! Edith's dress is cute and fun and I love the sleeves. I'm not a huge fan of Sybil's belted, collared dress.

Sybil's purple dress is an awesome color for her. The empire waist, 3/4 sleeves, and boatneck top are elegant and simple.

One of my favorite scenes ever is this one where Sybil comes down wearing pants! I love this outfit! It is so spunky and awesome. :) The delicate embroidery adds elegance to this sassy outfit.

There's your vintage fashion post, readers. I'll have a new post up very soon! :)

Colorful Living

I was thinking about it the other day, and I absolutely adore color. We truly have a creative God! He has made each and every color! They are all beautiful and unique. They truly can affect moods, too! For instance, would you be happier if you were in a black and grey room or a cheerful yellow one? They are visually pleasing and fun. I grabbed my camera and took a few shots of some colorful things that make me happy.

 Do you know what this strange fruit is? Yellow watermelon! I had never even heard of one until I went to my aunt and uncle's house! It's super yummy and visually pleasing!

 Ahh...fruit is one of my favorite things! And sitting here in this dish, are my three favorite fruits. Cantaloupe, strawberries, and kiwi. :)

Next, I took some pictures of my room. It is my 'happy place'!
 For those of you who have been in my house, you know about the lime green paint. ;) It looks pretty pale in this pic, but trust me, it's bright in real life!
 This is my brightly colored memo board! It was a DIY one, and it was super fun!
 My curtains are turquoise lace. They're elegant, but fun all at the same time!
 Ah, my bed! I love the turquoise and green layers and the white rick rack. Plus, I have a pink laptop! :) (that's where I do all my writing and posting, y'all!)

I don't know why, but I love having fun sheets. These are my new ones from Target, and they're super soft! Plus, they're turquoise and polka-dot! It's always good to have sheets that actually match your room.

So, this has nothing to do with color, but I wanted to show you my minion keychain!!!! He is so adorably cute, and it's my favorite 'style' of minion. :) (combover, short, one eye!) I got him in a Cocoa Puffs box and he is my new best friend. ;)

What colors make you happy? :)
