Remember the moments

Hi Lovely,

I hope you’re having a wonderful day! Sorry I’ve been a bit spotty with blogging lately. Fletch and I have had a lot on our plates. You may know by now that Fletch and I are going to be moving soon. Trying to find a new place has taken up a ton of time but it looks like we finally found a place!!! We plan on moving at the end of February so things will finally calm down soon.

This new change has me reflecting on our past homes. Our first apartment out of college was a studio in downtown Tacoma. It had a ton of issues but I can’t help but remember it fondly. We first got Lily in that apartment. I remember her tiny little puppy paws running on the hardwood floors. She wasn’t able to jump on the furniture because she’d slide around.

Every time we move we always find a way to make it our own. This new place will be no different.

Pastel Princess Meets Kevin Smith

Hi Lovely!

I hope you’re having a spectacular day! On Saturday night Fletch and I found out that Kevin Smith was coming to Tacoma for a meet and greet at a local comic shop the next day! The tickets were only $10 a person so we jumped on it!!! When deciding what to wear I had a bit of a hard time. Do I wear something nerdy that we could possibly connect about? Do I just go for cute? Welp, I decided to go for cute and comfy (because that’s how I role). I’ve been wanting to wear my new Sanrio shirt from the latest Sanrio Loot Crate so I decided to bust it out. If it’s not good enough for Kevin Smith then when else would I wear it?

You have the power to affect your environment

Hi Lovely!

I hope you’re having a wonderful day! Fletch and I have been trying to find a new place to live and it’s been pretty stressful. The other day we had an appointment to check out a new place and I got lost. See, Fletch ended up leaving work late so we had to meet there. I put the address into Google Maps and it took me to a random apartment complex (which was not where I wanted to be). At this point I’m 5 minutes late and I HATE being late. I mean HATE! Nothing stresses me out more than being late for stuff. So I’m lost and I have no idea where I’m supposed to go. Come to find out the address was wrong, the street was south but the listing said southwest, and after looking it up via the street view online I was able to figure it out. I ended up being 20 minutes late and had a complete break down in my car before figuring out the mixup.

Why am I sharing my overreaction to being late to this appointment? Well, I’ve been a bit stressed and honestly didn’t handle getting lost well at all. I even snapped at Fletch on the phone while trying to find my way. While driving to the appointment, after snapping at Fletch and feeling incredibly guilty, I decided I wouldn’t let it affect the rest of my night. I wanted to walk into this new place with a positive attitude. Plus, after the appointment we had dinner plans with friends so I wanted to be in the right mindset.

My Super-Cute Little Twin Stars x Godzilla Shirt!

BHi Lovely,

I’m so so incredibly excited about the shirt I’m sharing today. Sanrio recently released a collaboration with Godzilla where they styled Godzilla after different Sanrio characters. I decided to treat myself to the adorable Little Twin Stars shirt. I wasn’t going to buy it initially but decided to get it and, worse comes to worse, sell it once it arrived. I’m so incredibly happy I did!!! It fits perfectly, looks adorable, and is super-unique!

The only problem I have with this shirt is that the sleeves are a bit long. It’s a unisex size so I wasn’t too surprised. I went ahead and rolled up the sleeves and the problem was solved!

Fletch loves Godzilla so this collaboration combines both of our favorite things. It makes me happy to be able to represent both of our interests. I feel like this as a pretty interesting crossover. When I told other people about it, they looked confused. Why would Sanrio make a line of products with Godzilla? Well, I don’t care about the why because the designs are too perfect! I love anything that makes Godzilla appear cute or cuddly. So basically this collab hadn’t “Hilary” written all over it!

What are your thoughts on this collab? Are you loving it?

Stripes and Bows Stand Out in The Snow

Hi Lovely!

We recently had a bit of snow and I had to take the opportunity to snap a few photos before it melted. This is one of my all time favorite outfits. I adore this stripy dress from Bonne Chance Collections and love pairing it with my mint sweater. My favorite colors are pink, purple, and mint green (can you tell?) so this outfit is perfect for showing them off.

I wore this outfit out to brunch with Fletch a few days after Christmas. I had been lounging around the house for far too long and wanted to get a little dolled up. I decided to pair my most adored accessories with my super-cute dress to create an absolutely scrumptious look. Can you tell I’m feeling this look?

The holiday season was a bit tougher for me this year. I find myself missing my Mom more and more. Not having her around for Christmas was really difficult but with Fletch’s love, support, and wonderful company, I still had a great holiday. I allowed myself to be down when I needed to and when I was ready I dressed up and went out. Sometimes you just need to feel your emotions, right?

When I’m in a crummy mood I find that wearing bright colors or fun accessories cheer me up. Most days to work I wear a fun enamel pin. Most of the time they don’t even match. It’s just my way of wearing something spunky to work. Booth (from the hit television show Bones) wore silly socks. I wear pins. If it makes you happy then why the heck not?

What do you do when you feel down and need to lift your spirit? Do you change up your look?
