Common Creativ


this month’s Common Creativ post gives a twist to a Dark & Stormy and instructions on how to give new life to your old denim!
simply put: switched out the rum for tequila and added some juicy fruit 
thanks Scott for doing a fabulous job of modeling!
-his shades are made from recycled skateboards, made here in Atlanta
as many bloggers out there are sporting ombre’d shorts and trying the technique at home it wasn’t hard to find tutorials explaining the process. i found that many ladies were just dipping them into the bleach then trying to give a fade manually. going back to my days of tie-dying i thought using rubberbands would give a nice fade effect and as it turns does! 
it was quite easy, read about it on CommonCreativ in further detail!

sidenote: on CC i used orange dye around the top of the ones shown above, later i rebleached…dyed them a denim color and then redyed. i just wasn’t TOTALLY in love with the yellowish look and therefore kept changing it up until i got it exactly how i wanted and now i have a “new” pair of shorts i love!

don’t be afraid to experiment, you never know.. one step could take you to another step which could lead to a delightfully wild outcome!

top: UO, kicks: Sam Edelman, shades: AA

if you are an Atlanta blogger, i’m looking forward to seeing you tonight at the Atlanta Style Bloggers one-year Anniversary Party at Whiskey Blue! 

if you are an Atlanta local, i hope to run into this weekend during the Dragoncon festivities, i’ll be with Indiana Jones!

happy almost weekend,


time for another recap via Instagram pics, here’s my
Atlanta (and a lil Florida) life as of lately:
sporting a LF tank c/o Promotes.Me out of Alabama, vintage skirt, UO platforms & Free People shades ///arm swag including a vintage Chanel button turned into a watchband bracelet by Beth Val Colbert and a Low Luv by Erin Wasson cross bones bracelet. 
beers and frisbee tossing in Piedmont park with a cute guy and beautiful skies!
Dolce Vita suede flats for a comfy work day /// more wrist layering with Lucky Brand, vintage and evil eyes.
Sunday evening pool party atop lofts in ATL with Elizabeth and friends ///
nail art and jewels during the Starving Artist Games in Old Forth Ward hosted by Mint Gallery
snapped this pic of an earlier cover of Eide’ magazine during their International Issue Launch party at the Whiskey Blue in W Buckhead. great party where I was able to hang with other Atlanta bloggers and mingle with the ladies behind the magazine!
/// umbrellas are at Park Tavern in Piedmont park, it’s a perfect spot to go after an afternoon of biking in the park or in my case after some ultimate frisbee!
visited my parents in Florida and mom took me to a TJ Maxx that ended up being a hotspot for designer goods despite the location and shanty exterior, scored this Cynthia Rowley bag for less than a hundred bucks /// pearls and silver make up a preppy work day arm party
in a previous post i mentioned the Fallen Arrows Wastage Wash launch party which i attended and had a blast with the guys behind the company and local supporters. went home with my very own tee in the splatter print! we ended up bringing the party to the roof and hanging out by the Neon Company Sign, dangerous good times!
Atlanta’s had a rainy summer which means umbrellas and boots-my vintage cowboy boots serve as the perfect waterproof gear
goat farm art /// architecture at my workplace
hit up the Forever 21 outlet in Orlando and came home with 3 dresses! the striped blouse is by Lush (scored at the amazing TJ Maxx in Cocoa Beach) and the sunglasses were a total steal from the Pacsun outlet for $2.99 /// boots were part of a trade with Rag O Rama in Little Five, traded in $74 dollars worth of clothes, took home $75 worth of “new” stuff! love good deals!
casual Friday in a (very) vintage Coca Cola shirt /// day AND night you can spot me biking around town
sleepy workin woman and Mr T in his favorite spot in my closet
nautical arm decor for my trip down to Melbourne, FL /// another rainy day in the A outfit includes Forever 21 top, Element skirt, UO umbrella & Kickers boots
big ass fish i caught with my dad = FISH BIKINI /// parents condo is somewhat of a danger zone!
repping America on the Florida beaches (and my new yellow and tan Charming Charlie’s hat!) /// repping America, kitty cats and pretty Native American ladies in my room
August is my last month at the goat farm then i move EVERYTHING to my loft and combine artistic efforts with miss Chelsea Raflo, super excited for the upcoming adventure! /// later this week i’ll be sharing my DIY post from my Common Creativ column which outlines how to revive old denim shorts and jeans plus a tasty tequila drink.
will be posting it on Wednesday so check back here (or there!) for details.
good luck with your Monday!

in the post I talk about how to create salon style nails with a few easy steps. my roommate and i combined nail polish forces and came up with this combination for her nails:
extending lines past nail bed onto skin and later clean off with a q-tip and polish remover will give your brushstroke a clean finish. 
Lisbeth’s confetti ring: vintage
both are pretty simple “projects” and they each have their benefits.  be sure to check out the rest of the post and my geometric press-on army green concoction!
