Wow it's been a long I'm writing this I'm eating a microwave mug cookie and watching Supernatural (Wooo!!!! I love Supernatural!!!!)! My house is kind of under construction right now...and I don't have a stove. I was living solely on Pizza Rolls until I discovered microwave mug recipies!! So amazing!! I can make eggs, muffins, and french toast (and cake, cookies, and brownies...) just in the microwave it's pretty awesome! Most of the recipes I use I found in this Buzzfeed article. There's a brownie recipe I use too...but I memorized it so I don't know the link. Yes, I memorized it--that should tell you how awesome this mug brownie is. Ok, nevermind I found the link here. I couldn't stand telling you how awesome the brownie was without giving y'all the recipie. In fact I'm kind of craving said brownie now...but darn it, if I didn't have a mug cookie just now. Anyways, the brownie is super amazing if you put a couple of chocolate chips in the center and then stick some caramel right in the center so it melts in the microwave....NOOO now I want a brownie! As you can tell I have the munchies...

Anyways it was pretty warmish today and I was able to walk to and from my car without a coat...until it got dark at least. I wish it was still light enough to take pictures outside...but ya know it's ok. Rachel's an amazing photographer and these pics came out much better than I thought they would--we had lighting issues. It's weird because I've had these shoes for years and yet I've never worn them until now! When I was just starting to look into fashion I bought these boots at a thrift store 'cause I though they looked weird and hey they're Steve Madden. That's a good brand right? So they sat in my closet for like two years and I never wore them! I was this close to pitching them, but now I'm so glad I kept them!!!! Anyways, I love this dress that I thrifted the other day and with a black dress and these shoes I feel like I'm going to a funeral in the 1800s... But hey, I really loved the outfit and I'm so glad to be wearing dresses again!

Oh yeah, today's outfit was inspired by this outfit over at Just Take a Bow!

Hope your day is fantastic! Don't forget to follow and like Finding Inspiration on Facebook!

  10. Thank you for visiting my blog :)

    I'm in love with your boots, they are so cute! And such a cute colour from that belt.
    I have the same coat, except mine is from Zara and he's a bit longer. But he really looks the same. :)
    And may I say that I'm absolutely jealous of your hair colour!! It's like Amy Ponds hair ( you know what I mean ;) )

    1. Thank you so much! So cool that you have a similar coat! I wish my coat was a little longer like yours though. And thank you so much! I have been told before that I have Amy Pond hair :) I dressed up as her for Halloween last year!
