{just} because

Busy is as busy does and I've missed a couple of posts that I meant
 to get up in the last week or so. 
Today seems like a perfect day to play catch up!
If you haven't had a chance  yes, check out Operation Beautiful
Hosted by Shane {Whispering Sweet Nothings}.
It's a great opportunity for a little self-reflection, 
and a gentle reminder to appreciate who we are as women.

My opinions on what I think is beautiful, heck my opinion of myself, is an evolution. 
I don't necessarily feel beautiful day-in day-out, 
but I'm learning to see myself through other people's eyes,
 be more forgiving and less of my own worst critic. 
Seriously, girls, we are harder on ourselves than we should be!

My entry for Operation Beautiful IV: 

My other little catch-up for the week is for
the last Jewelry Swap hosted by Melissa
 {Life of a Not So Ordinary House Wife}

I had a nice shift change weekend/Labor Day weekend and when I finally got around to checking the mail, I found these awesome, and brand new feather earrings in my mailbox from Marissa {Everyday Lounge Act}.
Thanks Marissa!!!

You see I have a Las Vegas trip coming up and they are a perfect match 
for the outrageous skirt I bought to wear out.  

I'm going for a Las Vegas Neon Sign look. 
We've decided that I shall be called Tropicana the night I don this outfit.  
Or Tropical Thunder.
It's still being discussed...
Hot (yeah girl) neon mess.  
So yeah...
Viva Las Vegas & Happy Thursday to you all!!!


  1. rreeeeaaalllllly jealous that you have a beauty mark. I've always wanted one.

  2. Oh my gosh I love that your outfit commands it's very own name. Oooh Vegas will be a blast!

    I'm late, late, late but I'm following ya now from the GFC hop. If you're up for a bit of a ride I'd love for you to join me at where we little brave souls are riding the wave of life together, one teensy tinsy adventure at a time. And this week we're opening our sweet little online shop with giveaways galore. I hope you'll join the fun.
