Sunday Morning Rain Is Falling, Steal Some Covers, Share Some Skin…

Poor Little It Girl - American Eagle Outfitters Teal Crochet Bikini, David & Young Straw Hat, and Waveborn Tortoise Sunglasses

Bikini’sstraw hats and new sunglasses have me wishing, hoping, thinking and praying for a little sunshine here in Washington, DC.

As I type this post, there is some sort of snowy rain slush falling from the gray skies, not exactly the best weather to run outside and take outfit pictures in for a fun springtime look. So what’s a blogger to do when outfits just aren’t an option for a Monday post? Well, early today I went to our quarterly Southern Blog Society Meet Up here in DC, and while chatting with other bloggers who were all having the same issues with pictures and the rain, we decided indoor pictures were the only way to go. So I came home, grabbed my camera and snapped a few shots of things around my apartment to share with y’all a little bit of what it’s like over at PLIG headquarters.

Poor Little It Girl - A Guy's Styled Nightstand

I live with a boy, therefore my home is void of any lucite furniture, pink accent pillows or a styled bar cart, as it should be! This is what you can find on my boyfriends nighstand. Yes, that is a lamp of a dog smoking a cigar. I’m one lucky lady!

And The Set List You Stole Off The Stage Has Red And Purple Lipstick All Over The Page…

Maybe it’s my mothers voice that’s been ringing in my ears since I started wearing makeup, “Cathy, you need to put a little lipstick on!” but I never feel like my look is complete without a little color on my lips. While red is undoubtedly my go-to shade, I figured that since fall is upon us that my lipstick collection could go for a bit of updating. So I headed to my local drugstore and purchased almost twenty lipsticks (don’t worry, I was able to return the ones I hated…I checked!) and came across these eight shades that I just couldn’t get enough of. From nudes to purples to an obvious obsession with “cherries” here are a few of my favorite shades that you too can pick up at your local store.
