So I almost died this week. For three reasons.
One, being that Jeffrey Campbell wrote up this freaking amazing feature of me on their blog. ME. THEM. SHOCKED. You can check it out HERE!!!!! :D
Two, I decided to take a jog. In Arizona. At noon. When there is no shade. Like an idiot. I had woke up really early so for some reason I thought it was later in the day. Wrong-o! I basically almost died of heat stroke. I think I am being a little overly dramatic, but while I was walking home at a snails pace I honestly keep thinking that I was going to have to flag some random car over to drive me back home. Even when I was like 1 block from my house. Heck even when I could see my house! And to think, when I starting my run I even said to myself… “Pfffttt, I’m awesome! I’m not even sweating!! It’s been 12 minutes and I have so much stamina still. BOO YEAH!” Then I turned around to head home. Well yeah you amazing awesome runner, that same 12 minute run, took you 40 minutes to walk home. I even stood in someones front yard for a second because they had their sprinklers going. I was surviving out there!!!
Three, over this amazing western top from Lulus.com. I love the detail on the collar and how the hue complements my new hair color. What do you guys think? Totally dying right?

I love my new hair! What do you guys think? It seems to turn so many hues of lavender and lilac in different lighting. Last night it even looked blonde with no color at all. I really wanted it to pop in this photo though, thats why I decided to just wear this simple ivory dress.
In other news, I’m going to NYC again at the end of the month for one of my bestie’s bachelorette party. Definitely going to bring the camera to document the crazy that will be taking place. That’s what friend are for right? To snap pics of you wasted on your big night. Or even better right when you wake up hungover the next morning! Oh are you sleeping Annie? Is that drool on your face? SNAP!!!! Muahahaaaa <3 No I would never, well maybe. Ok so I wouldn’t post those pictures on the blog at least, I’m not a terrible person.
Happy 4th of July…well tomorrow. But now you can make this awesome shirt for all your festivities tomorrow! Check out the full DIY HERE!

It’s so fun to dabble in all the styles of summer. I love the whole 70’s vibe of these shorts, really makes the look. The sweatshirt on the other-hand is Aaron’s. You better believe I steal 40% of his clothes. Anyways he wore it when we went to San Diego the other weekend, and apparently Budweiser isn’t cool there. Not that I’m this huge advocate of Budweiser double fistting bottles around the house belching like Barney from the Simpsons or something. (That’s the second post in 2 days where I have mentioned a Barney from TV btw?!) I don’t even notice what the shirt says, it’s just cute and vintage looking in my mind. But man oh did people like to point it out. One drunk guy even was yelling at Aaron about it walking down the street. I don’t get it. Is there some sort of Budweiser rivalry in San Diego.
Maybe just a lot of “outspoken” drunk kids!

Woah! I drank some special elixir over the weekend and POOF! Long hair! Ok ok fine, we all know I have a thing for hair extensions. Which they are. Lemme tell you though, these extensions have been a nightmare to deal with. When I bought them, they didn’t quite match my real hair* (*hair growing from my head, not naturally hair color of course) They where a bit yellow, so I thought to myself. Well I’ll just slap some purple shampoo on these babies and that will do the trick. It always takes the yellow out of my own hair*. Well that was a mistake. A barney the purple dinosaur colored mistake. So after a few clarifying shampoo treatments and then finally a bleach session they finally match. And here they are in all their glory! lol
Well enough about da hairz. It’s finally officially summer. Even though it’s been above 90 degrees for the past few months here in AZ, it is actually starting to feel like it now. Nothing says summer more then cute cut-off denim shorts and neon colors. I think that’s basically going to be my summer uniform.

As I write this blog post I’m listening to this Matt Costa song I really want to sing. I’ll have to talk Aaron into learning it, and maybe I can post a little video of us playing it for next Tuneday!
This week has been a crazy one. More change. I can only say I’m looking forward to my future. Exciting things to come!
OH I do have a question for you guys! I’m posting my looks on other sites. Lookbook.nu, Chictopia, and ASOS Fashion Finder. Do you guys use any of those?

Hey love birds. Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend. My life has been crazy busy recently. I know I don’t talk about my “big girl” job very often, but just a refresher, I am an Art Director for a social gaming studio. Basically we make Facebook games, and we have one coming out very soon. I’ve been putting in the time…which often leads to a lot of late night pizza eating. I’ll have to start showing you guys some stuff I do for work.
Anyways how rad are these jeans? They are from Urban Outfitters line of BDG denim. I’m pretty much in love. I wonder if wearing a my galaxy print DIY shirt and galaxy print denim is a fashion no no. ;)
Anyways I must be off, have a happy Monday!
Hey peeps, so I don’t know if you noticed, but yesterday I titled my blog by date. For some reason I decided it was a good idea to use a 3, instead of 5, the number that actually represents the month of May. Seriously I don’t know what it is with me and typos. Amanda Shoemaker QUEEN OF TYPOS! Well at least I’m not trying to get a job in journalism. Haha! I will blame my errors on this wee hour of the morning. I’m still half asleep….that’s it! And the sun isn’t even up yet. Yeah sun, I blame you! I can barely see the keys to even type it’s so dark. THAT must be the problem. ;)
