Business Casual

Before I start my article review for class I thought I'd share what I wore to class. My school has a dress code and it's business casual though I managed to sneak my diy oxford tennis shoes past my teachers today. I might not get so lucky next time so I changed to my black flats. 

My poor owl lost his eye in class but I kept it so I can fix it later

Outfit Connections
Outerwear: Classic Knit Blazer Forever21
Top: Seashore Bliss Blouse Ruche
Pants: Khaki Jeggings Walmart
Shoes: Black Sequin Ballet Flats Forever21
Necklace: Owl Pendent c/o my Great Aunts Antique Shop
Glasses:  Brown Oversized Frames Walmart

Alright it's time to read that long article and get to writing. Thank God I get to sleep in tomorrow morning :)

A-Z of Me

I've seen this little tid-bit going around the blogesphere so I thought I'd join in on the fun and do one as well!

A. Age: 21
B. Bed size: queen but if I could have a king I'd love it...I tend to sleep in this weird stretch.
C. Chore that you hate: I think it'd would have to be folding laundry. I mean it's not hard but you spend so much time folding and putting them up and the next day it feels like everything is in the dirty clothes again.
D. Dogs: I would like to have a dog even though I'm more of a cat person.
E. Essential start to your day: Hitting the snooze button just for another 10 minutes. I set my alarm this way so I can wake up a little bit before having to actually get up.

F. Favorite color:  I tend to rotate on a few favorite colors. Right now I love olive green but I like burnt orange, mustard yellow, plum and light blue.
G. Gold or Silver:  I use to hate gold but I found out I do like it and now most of my necklaces are gold. I still love silver too.
H. Height: 5'1" I know I'm short.
I. Instruments you play: I don't play anything now but I played clarinet in middle school band.
J. Job title: server/waitress
K. Kids:  Not right now.
L. Live:  Denver, NC at the moment
M. Mother’s name:  Shannon
N. Nicknames: Some have been Ambear or Ber but I usually just go by Amber
O. Overnight hospital stays A few ER visits but never overnight stay
P. Pet peeves: People who pick or bite at their nails in public. And I don't mean the small, "Oh I noticed I have a little dirt on my nail let me clean it" but the full fist in their mouth or fingers digging in their nails..grosses me out thinking of it.
Q. Quote from a movie:  "
The blues are because you're getting fat and maybe it's been raining too long, you're just sad that's all. The mean reds are horrible. Suddenly you're afraid and you don't know what you're afraid of" ~Breakfast at Tiffany

I know so many people quote this movie but some days you do just get the mean reds.
R. Right or left handed: left
S. Siblings: I'm the oldest but have younger half-siblings: Chance 15, Kerri 8, Jonathan 6 and Judah 3
T. Time you wake up: School: 6am/8am Weekends: 9am-11am
U. Underwear: Hipsters are comforable.
V. Vegetable you hate: I despise cooked cabbage.
W. What makes you run late: setting the alarm clock wrong or thinking I have everything ready only to realize I'm missing half the stuff I need.
X. X-Rays you’ve had: Only at the dentist.
Y. Yummy food that you make: Anything casserole form I make yummy squash, asparagus or broccoli casserole. I was thinking of putting this as a side dish option at the Cafe :)
Z. Zoo animal: There are so many cute creatures but honestly I love the frog,snake or lizard area.

D.I.Y | Television Stand

I found this displaying a tacky lamp in the local thrift store for only $10. At first I just changed the knobs, cleaned it then used it as an "entry way" table.
It worked at the entry way but we still put our junk on the old television stand. So I decided to re-purpose it  and put chalkboard paint to the front. we've already had an epic tic-tac-toe game on it
There is still a lot of work to be done to it on the outside and inside. It's a little rough on the outside so new staining is in order then I want to put a shelf inside for more storage and to put the game system inside (and drill some holes in the back for cords). I think it looks great so far and once we get rid of the speakers and do the small things it'll be done!

p.s: Yes I was watching Doctor Who when I took the picture.

Day 4 & 5

Draw Your Favorite Place
I don't have a favorite place but I tend to like things that make me feel at home or remind me of place I went to as a child.

Draw Your Best Friend
I don't really have a "Best Friend" out of a lot of friends rather a handful of Great Friends. I couldn't draw them all so here are the ones I've hung out with the most/most recently :) Love you guys/gals!!


Happy Labor Day!

I'm not really sure how you celebrate Labor Day? I don't really celebrate it more like try and enjoy my last day of Summer before I have to get up at 6 am tomorrow morning for class. Sorry about no post asides from the usual ones but I've been busy and haven't really done much besides that, but I will be posting the 30 DDC for yesterday and today's drawings so check back tonight. Well I'm going shopping soon to pick up some needed crafts and housing decorations. Is there anything special that you or your family does for Labor Day? Hope you all have a great day!

Day 3

Draw Your Favorite Food

I really can't say what my favorite food is cause there are a few (I can list what I don't like in a heartbeat). This is what came to mind when I was thinking of foods I really like though I'm probably missing a few things.

Day 2

Draw Your Favorite Animal

I like a lot of animals like sharks, cats, dogs, horses, hedgehogs and octopus(octopodes?)but I have to say owls are my ultimate favorite.

New Season

New season means new wardrobe so why not get some new jewelry? :) Though the Fall collection is still underway doesn't mean you can't pick up one of these amazing pieces from Craft'n Bettie.

Plenty more where these came from! Plus there is still Harry Potter themed earrings, rings and necklaces (perfect for going back to school)


Day 1

Draw Yourself

I took a picture of the drawing because my scanner isn't working right. Click here to see the picture I was working from.


30 Days Drawing Challenge

I stumbled upon this 30 Day Drawing Challenge and it seems pretty fun especially since I'm kind of having writers block. I may not post it everyday but I'll try my best to keep up with it.
