Watching: Still watching Mad Men, Hannibal, Bomb Girls, and I think I am going to start watching Bates Hotel.  Do you have any television shows that you adore?

Thinking about: I cannot wait to get my new kindle in the mail.  My old one decided to stop working, so I just saved a little and ordered a new one.  It should be in this week.

Listening to: Connie Francis station on Pandora.  I love to mix of 50's and 60's music that it offers.  All female lead singers and lots of summer tunes to move and grove to.

Looking forward to:  The Rust Revival Car Show this upcoming weekend.  We are heading out of town with friends and it should be a lot of fun.  The best way to kick off summer!

Making me happy: Just updated my bedroom.  It went to pale blues and grays to jewel tones and warmth. I changed out the bedding, wall art, and curtains and it has changed the look of the room entirely. I love it!

Daily Candy and a Review with Steady Clothing!

So, this amazing little company, Steady Clothing, sent me some wonderful items for review, and up this week is the super cute, super adorable Norma Jean dress!













Not only does this company have some serious stock in my closet, right now, they are an amazing brand to work with.  Some of the most cherished dresses that I own, are created by Steady Clothing, and this newest edition is one of them!

The Norma Jean dress is just as cute in person, as it is online!  The fit does run snug, so I would suggest perhaps sizing up when ordering.  The fabric does have some give to it, which to me, always make a garment a little more comfortable to wear.

I styled mine with a wide white belt, some red espadrilles and a polka dot hair bow.  This is a perfect outfit to wear going to see a movie, family picnic, or out to lunch with the girls.  Another great way to transition this dress into fall, is to pair it with dark tights, tall brown boots and a cropped denim jacket!

How would you wear this dress?

Stay Sweet,
Katty

Watching: Shameless. Oh my gawd, so funny.  I am watching the US version, not the UK version.  It is a show about a very messed up family and all the shenannigans they get into


Thinking about: the families that were affected by the Oklahoma Tornado. I live, technically, in Tornado Alley, and every spring/summer there is always going to be weather that runs its natural course, but when I ruins an area that is riddled with children, it is always much harder to swallow.  

Listening to: Band of Horse radio on pandora.  Sweet, calming, beautifulness.

Looking forward to:  Memorial Day Weekend.  I don't really have any plans, but sometimes not having plans are the best kind of plans.  Do you do anything special to celebrate the unofficial start of summer?

Making me happy:  Summer time!!! Warm weather means patio time, pool time, and just celebrating the bounty of a sumer garden.

Must Have Beauty ~ The Original Beauty Blender and Blender Cleasner
This is the item I use everyday.  This little sponge does amazing things to make your foundation, or even tinted moisturizer look flawless.  If you haven't tried one, you need too.



Must Have Beauty ~ Pacifica Natural Color Quench Lip Tint
I already use this brand's hand cream, which Target just started carrying (!)  The company produces amazing scents, and this lip tint is vegan.  I am always excited to come across new beauty products that are vegan and cruelty free.





Must Have Fashion ~ Charm & Chain gift card
I just checked out this website, www.charmandchain.com, and though it looks a little out of my price range, I may just hold onto the $30 gift card and use it when I have a little extra in the budget.  There are some rings I am already lusting after.




Must Have Food ~ The Modern Cocktails Mixers.
I can't wait to try these out.  I am normally not one for prepackaged drinks, but these seem fun and were 'basically' free to try.  They each come with rim sugar too. I am mostly excited about the blood orange flavor



Must Have Entertainment ~ Mindy Kaling Topics Book.
Number one, this lady is hilarious.  I loved her character on the office, and she has just blown up lately!  Her take on life makes me smile and I love her comedy.  


Must Have Fashion ~Kooringal giselle mid brim hat .
I LOVED this one the most! I am a huge advocate of sun protection and I am glad I was sent this beautiful gray hat!  It is sturdy and has a bendable brim.

Tell me about your featured photo(s). When were they taken? Why are they your favorite? The first picture was taken last year for a calendar I made as a gift for my boyfriend. It's one of my fav's because the expression on my face is classic. The second picture was taken around August last year. It was the first photo shoot I had after a year long hiatus. It's a fav of mine because the bike belongs to my boyfriend and he likes how I look as a cute mechanic. The last picture was done October of this year. This was a big shoot for me since I was working with a big photography business. This is one of many of my favorite pictures from that shoot. Deciding which one to pick was too hard. The team at Vixen made the shoot a blast.
