A Few Things…

By | Daisy Rae | 33 Comments
{Top: Daisy Rae; Jeans: similar; Bag: similar similar; Shoes: similar; Jewelry: Premier Designs; Necklace: similar similar}

A few things about this outfit:

  • Apparently I’m loving red this week (well, this top is more of a rust color but it’s in the red color family).
  • I have come to the conclusion that I shouldn’t be allowed to wear clothes while eating (or just being around) food. I got a blackberry stain on my white jeans…but was able to get the stain out. Thank goodness!
  • The hubby has ban me from wearing those shoes around him. They make me the tiniest bit taller than him.
  • I’m really hating my bangs and I’m getting really tired of always pinning them back. They need to just grow out already!
  • I decided to order this top for my store after seeing this post from 9to5 Chic. Only her top costs a few hundred dollars and mine is $25.95

    Echo Echo Echo & Giveaway Winner

    By | Daisy Rae | 17 Comments

    Have you ever talked into a microphone? I did for the first time at my sisters wedding and let me tell you, it is a little weird. You hear your echo which kind of throws you off when trying to speak. I had my Maid (Matron) of Honor speech all prepared and I practiced it to ensure that I wouldn’t mess up but then when I started speaking, I heard my echo which caused me to stumble over my words a little bit. And then when I would turn my head to look at my sister during my speech I would forget to move the mic with my head so people couldn’t hear me and I’d have to repeat myself. I guess hosting any sort of awards show, like the Gramy’s, is out of the picture for me due to my inability to speak into a microphone. At least everyone said my speech was good and my little mistakes made it cute and added personality to the toast. And the wedding was beautiful and me sister was absolutely gorgeous so all was a success!!!

    P.S. The SkinCareRX Giveaway winner is Marisa- Broke With Designer Taste. Congrats!!! Email me to claim your prize.

    The Wonders of Lotion

    This probably isn’t news to you but… lotion works wonders to make your skin soft and silky! I know, I am a little behind on the times with this information but I just discovered how great lotion is. It has never been a part of my daily beauty routine until recently. I think its that I’m just too cheap to buy lotion. One bottle could buy me some ice cream. And when it comes to ice cream or lotion, ice cream wins. But recently I decided to splurge (I bought both ice cream and lotion) and my skin is thanking me for it. I’m so soft now!

    Mint Jeans Reincarnated

    You might remember my post Life of the Mint Jeans, where I told the story of the short life of my mint jeans and what led to their destruction. They put up good fight the whole way through but sadly, they didn’t make it to the end as mint jeans.

    Well, here they are reincarnated as lime green shorts! Yes, these are the same bottoms just with a whole new look! Hopefully their life as lime green shorts will last longer then their life as mint jeans.

    If you are dying to destroy your mint jeans and make them into lime green shorts, just follow the steps in this post to create the look 😉

    You know how Tyra Banks always tells the contestants of America’s Next Top Model to “smize” or smile with your eyes? Well, I have come to the realization that I cannot “smize”. If I am not actually smiling, my eyes don’t look happy. They look mad and like I’m ticked off at the world. It looks like any hopes I might have had of being on America’s Next Top Model are not going to happen due to my angry eyes (and also due to the fact that I’m only 5’4″). But that’s ok, I didn’t really have plans of becoming a model anyways.

    Dear Denim Vest,
    I have been searching for you for a few months and I am so happy to have you in my life. You came along and suddenly, everything in my closet seems a little better. The dresses that I never wore because they felt too dress-y for me have found new life thanks to you. I know we will make some great memories together. You are my “vest” friend! (get it? I know, I’m so clever)
    Love Always, Kacie

    Tennis: Not As Easy As It Looks

    By | Daisy Rae | 115 Comments
     {Top: Daisy Rae; Shorts: similar; Necklace: J. Crew; Heels: Urban Outfitters; Bag: similar; Ring: similar similar; Sunglasses: similar}

    The other day the hubby and I were bored and trying to find something to do. We came up with the great idea of getting some Tennis Lessons. First step: Buy tennis rackets. Second Step: Buy me a tennis skirt. You have to look the part to play the part, right? The hubby didn’t agree so we skipped this step. Third Step: Learn how to play tennis. That proved a little harder than we thought. The hubby asked if I knew how to play. I said you just let the ball bounce and then hit it. (I later learned their are other rules and you don’t always have to let the ball bounce first). Needless to say we weren’t very good (I may or may not have gotten a ball to the chin).

    While my mom was visiting, her and I played tennis. She actually had a clue what she was doing so she taught me a few things. I’m pretty much a pro now. The next time the hubby and I play, he is going down!
