LCC Gift Guide - The Man In Your Life

Hello friends! I'm back with another gift guide! This time it's for the man in your life! It could be your husband, boyfriend, father, brother, cousin twice removed....Either way these gifts are for boys...

I forgot to number these by the way, but I think you can follow along. 

Resonate Gifts: A cool idea for anyone really, they take a recording that you make and turn it into a bracelet or tee shirt using the sound wave. So whether you say "I love you" or "What's up pickle breath" you have a gift that means something!

Whisky Rocks:  A good gift for the whisky drinker in your life! Cool them in the freezer and they won't have a watered down drink. Also that website ( is pretty awesome. 

Movie Memorabilia: One of my favorite things to do for D each year is to get him some Fight Club memorabilia. I always check Ebay and find so much! Whether you want to spend $5 or $5000 I guarantee you can find what you are looking for, and it's a sweet way to say "hey, I know what movies you love."

Butt & Face Soap: Because why in the heck not. 

Beard Comb: Does the man in your life have some untamed whiskers? Why not get him a way to groom them? I linked one of my favorites, but you can find tons of grooming tools if you poke around. 

Leather Journal: I love getting people journals. I think it's the coolest gift. Maybe because I love to write and draw, so I want everyone to write and draw. You could even have it monogrammed or do what I did for D last year and write a note of some sort in the front so it's really personal.

Hello Wall

We took these pictures next to a wall. 

I'm having some serious writer's block right now. I swear I can think of a million things to write about during the day, but sometimes when I sit down to actually write a post I draw a huge blank. I wish I drew a huge bank instead. Then I could be rich! I don't know if it would actually work that way, but it's my imagination so I'm gonna go with it. 

Do you guys daydream? I mean I do it a lot. Where would I like to visit? Where would I like to live? What if I were a Kardashian? I don't really want to be a Kardashian. I would be a terrible Kardashian in fact. I am not big on plastic surgery, and as big as my butt is, I'm not quite at the Dash level. This outfit is a little Kardashian though. A romper and tall boots... Not near enough lip or tan though. 

In conclusion I would like to thank this wall. This wall made me look good. Or maybe I made this wall look good...Either way we made a pretty good team while these pics were being taken and I appreciate the effort it put in. Here's to you wall. Stand up straight! Believe in yourself. One day you might get to be a backdrop for someone much more famous than myself. Maybe a Kardashian!

LCC Gift Guide - BFF

In the spirit of the holiday season I have decided to do some random gift guides for you guys! I'm a pretty good gift giver (if I do say so myself), so I thought I would share in my gift knowledge! This "episode" is for your BFF, or any good friend that might be hard to buy for. Enjoy...

1. Matching Shirts: I know, I know...How seventh grade of you Heather, but hear me out; this is a great idea. Why? Because it's a good way to let your BFF know how much they mean to you, and it's just fun for those days you guys hang out at the pool, at an outdoor concert, or even go shopping. Face it you guys love attention and these will get you a little more together! The ones I have pictured are sold out, but the link will take you to a plethora of others on Etsy. 

2. Ipsy Subscription (or Birchbox): I am obsessed with Ipsy and I know that it would make a great gift! Also if you can afford the monthly subscription ($10) it might be more cost effective than a large amount all at once. 

3. Coffee: If you have a friend that is a coffee fiend this is a great choice. It may seem basic, but it's not. Go to Starbucks, or whatever coffee shop you choose and not only get them a gift card, but pick out a special blend, and a mug. Put it all together and it's thoughtful and practical. 

4. Tickets: What has your BFF been dying to do? What is their favorite band? Is there an exhibit at your local museum that you know they would love? Get them a ticket, and one for yourself! Or get one for them and for their significant other if you don't really dig the event. Either way it's thoughtful and shows you pay attention to their interests! 

5. Homemade: I LOVE homemade gifts! I also love the idea in the featured pic! A whole jar of lucky charms marshmallows? How cute is that?!?! I linked homemade gift ideas from Pinterest for inspo! 

6. Magazine Subscription: Perhaps one of my favorite gift ideas is a magazine subscription. You can pick out a magazine you know they love, but that they buy every month and subscribe for them. Or maybe there is a magazine that you know they would love, but they never get it! Either way it's the gift that keeps on giving! 

Happy Shopping ya little niblets!

I like to make up conversations that I would have with my dogs. They both have such big personalities and so I imagine what they would say and how our conversations would go. I decided to do a whole blog post dedicated to some of those conversations. 

Oh and spoiler alert...I cut my hair off. 

Me to my dogs: Why are you staring at me like that?
My dogs to me: We are judging you. 
Me to my dogs: Judging me for what?
My dogs to me: For still being in your pjs...It's like 2:00.  

Me: What is that?
My dogs: What is what?
Me: That thing in your mouth?
My dogs: Oh that! It's just our teeth...and cat poop. 

My dogs: Pet us!
Me: I'm busy working right now! 
My dogs: Pleeeeeeeeeeaaaaaasssseeeee pet us!!!!!
Me: Fine *reaches for them*
My dogs: *running away* TOO LATE! HAHAHAHA!!!!!

My dogs: Feed us. 
Me: I fed you like an hour ago! 
My dogs: But we are hungry again now. Feed us! 
Me: No! It's like 10:00 AM! 
My dogs: Food has no timetable.
Me: Fine. I'll give you a snack. 

Five minutes later...

My dogs: Feed us...
Me: ...............

Teenage Dream

We took these pictures at Love Circle, a very well known "park" in Nashville where you can look down on the city. It's always seemed strange to us that it's such a high point, but from the city I never see it. It's like magic. 

It's also a hideout for packs of wild teenagers...

We walked up the hill to find a group of teenagers in their most comfortable environment; a make out spot. We approached them slowly as to not spook them, but they did seem to be a bit frightened and scattered to the other side of the hill. 

I wondered if we should try to feed them. I didn't see any "don't feed the teenagers" signs, but in the end I decided it was best to just try to ignore them. 

Eventually one of them, presumably the pack leader, approached us slowly to ask if we had a cigarette. We politely, but a little sternly (cigarettes are bad, Mkay...) told him no and he quickly fled along with the rest of the pack. 

We didn't know where they went until we heard the rattle of an old car and the squeals of the female pack members as they rolled down the hill. I think they'll be ok. 

I highly recommend visiting this spot if you are ever in Nashville, but bring some McDonalds french fries because teenagers love those!

Pant Intimidation

I put these pants on to wear them out for only the second time since I bought them well over a year ago. These pants. Intimidate. Me. 

I'm honestly not intimidated by much, but a few things do the trick. Bright colors, wooly worms, hot peppers, and patent leather top my list, but these pants are now right up there. 

Sometimes you need to face your fears and confront what intimidates you head on! I pulled these pants out, tough talked them a little, flopped them around, and put them right on! They had nothing more to say to me. I had won this round. Silly pants. 

Now if you will excuse me I have a pepper eating wooly worm with bright pink patent leather shoes staring me down and I really need to get my husband to deal with him.

Lets Makeup

I decided to do a beauty post since I haven't done one in a while and it's raining like crazy here with no sign of stopping. So here it is! This is a basic makeup look that I would do if I were just wanting to do a simple clean face. 


I start out with Oil of Olay lotion and MAC foundation (I'll list all the products below with links) and then MAC mineral powder to set it. 

A little blush and phase one is complete. It's probably super weird that I literally think of these steps as phases, but whatever. 

Phase one. Boom. 

On to phase two which is the final phase and the best phase. Yes I am aware that only having two phases seems unnecessary, but I have some makeup routines with three phases so you'll just have to deal with the two phases this time. 

I typically use my Naked pallet here. It's. The. BEST.  I use a light shimmery color on my whole lid and up under my eyebrow and then a darker charcoal color in the crease. Make sure to blend really well so you don't look like a crazy person. 

Next comes eyelash curling and mascara, which if I'm being honest could give you the look of a whole face of makeup by itself! 

I finish it off with filling in my brows just a bit (still with the Naked pallet) and some Buxom plumping lip gloss! 

Like I said, a simple clean face. Although it's technically not clean I guess. It's actually pretty gunked up, but it looks clean! Products are below! 


Shadow: Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette (I used Booty Call for the whole lid and Pistol for the crease with Blackout in my brows)  
Gloss: Buxom (My fave is Sandy) 
Little Pink Godsend: Beauty Blender (Well worth every single cent. Trust me on this one.)

Green Water

I can't promise that this post will be even remotely coherent because I am high on Benadryl at the moment trying to combat the horrific war going on in my sinus cavity. It's not cool. Also not cool is the color of the water behind me. 


That water is straight up dyed green. Why? Why would you dye water like that? It's so weird! What if a white duck goes into that water? They would come out with a green butt! I have never seen a green butted duck, but I can assure you if I do it's not natural and probably came from this pond. 

Other than having horrible allergies, I have spent the week doing the following things:
  1. Wondering if you can get rabies from a pig. 
  2. Eating Chic-Fil-A Salads so much that we actually got a special Chic-Fil-A-List card. (No that is not a joke. It is literally called the Chic-Fil-A-List.)
  3. Googling Pig Rabies
  4. Reading old notes from High School that my husband found in storage. 
  5. Having a nose bleed and wondering if that is a symptom of pig rabies. 
I might have overreacted to the pig bite just a little. 

I also bought purple lipstick. It's MAC Heroine to be exact and I love it. 

Can ducks get rabies?

Fall Favorites

Sometimes I like to take a break from nonsense and talk about fashion. Since this is a fashion/style blog I think it's only fitting. I pulled together some of my favorite Fall styles so that we can drool over them together! I love interesting shapes and neutral colors with little pops of floral and lace! I've linked them below so you can even stop drooling and buy them if you want! Aren't I so nice tempting you like that? Enjoy!

2. Barra Boots - Aldo (I love that these are an almost identical dupe for the Stewart Weitzman Lowland boot which I am dying for! And at a fraction of the price!)

Follow me here on Pinterest to see what else inspires me!

Pig Attack

I was mauled by a pig recently...this is my story...

It was a day like any other except for the fact that I live in the city and I was going to be spending a few hours on a farm with my best friend going on hay rides and picking out pumpkins. Totally the norm. 

We were having the best time. We frolicked. We sat on hay. We saw cows, and goats, and Satan's pink children!!! I think you know who I am talking about...

This was before he took me into his snotty snorty clutches of evil and bit. my. finger!!! WHAT THE HECK MAN??? I always loved those little guys! He turned on me. I guess I did taste oddly like pumpkin and hay, so I figure I might have had it coming. 

Either way we had an excellent time. Sherri took the photos of me and did a fabulous job! I love her face almost as much as that pig loved my finger. 

Stupid pig.
