Freckles in April: Winning

Friday, January 21, 2011


Shirt- Gap, Skirt- Don't remember, Shoes- Target, Necklace- gift from sis

I woke up this morning determined to beat the mediocrity blues.

Actually, I decided last night to beat them today so before I went to bed I did a speed clean, finished a couple loads of laundry, plowed my way through my inbox (I'm down to 4 items!), and made plans for how I was going to win at life today.

I started to make my bed while I was still in it (weird how a made bed makes such a big difference). For breakfast I used a recipe I already knew was stellar.

I took my outfit inspiration from Kendi's Gingham Gang post and Kimmie's skirt/plaid combo and replaced my old dried out mascara. And, honestly, the new mascara probably made the biggest difference in my day. It really is the little things, isn't it?

Come on bangs! Grow, grow, grow!

I got my grocery shopping done and did my meal planning for next week.

AND! I signed up for the next round of 30 for 30. Yup, it's that time again. The next round starts February 1 and you have until January 28 to sign up. Join us! You know you want to do it too. You'll be in really good company (moi). And, seriously, it was so good for me. I'm really looking forward to doing it again!

My point is, I am ROCKING today. And it feels good.

PS Have you played with Picnik yet?? I'm halfway decent at Photoshop but this was way more fun. I spent forever putting all kinds of fun and ridiculous effects on these photos. Plus, it's freeeee. So awesome.

PPS Lots of good links in the comments of my previous post if you need a little pick me up. Go check it out!


  1. I love this outfit, Kayla! and jealous that your hair always looks awesome. I wish i could pull off the high bun (I have yet to try the sea salt spray....)

    and woo hoo for the next 30 for 30! Can't wait to see what you come up with! :)

  2. this further solidifies the idea that i need a gingham shirt. i'm too scared/lazy to do 30 for 30.

    hooray for winning at life.

  3. It may the picture effects, or because you pointed it out that you got new mascara.. but your eyes look really good! By the way my favorite Mascara is Bare Essentials Buxom. Just saying. It is the greatest stuff ever. No clumps (my old mascara had tons and i would be blinded for a while like 3x a day), and its just plain gorgeous.

    Good job at winning at life!

  4. Oh, and you should check out the Instagram App, it has effects like this. I love it.

  5. looks awesome!!!!!! hey I'm doing the 30 for 30 too!!
