I have been having problems with blogger lately so i have decided to switch to tumblr. Yes this could create a whole new set of problems, but right now this is what i am going to do. Basically blogger won't let me upload any more photos without paying monthly fees. Lets face it i don't want to pay to blog. The other reason is blogger has been glitching frequently...not being able to put a title for posts or being able to publish a post. Instead of becoming frustrated every time i try to blog i just decided to switch where i blog.

You can follow me on tumblr: HNB Life

See you over at my new home :)

Feeling Inspired

Today I had absolutely no plans. This meant i had plenty of time to hang out in my room and play dress up. Basically i spent an hour or two going through my clothes and putting outfits together. Once again i have realized there are a lot of clothes in my closet and so much potential for them. I came up with at least 10 new outfits from just a few different items. It was fun to see all the fun combinations. Perhaps i will refrain from buying new clothes for a while and actually wear some of the outfits i discovered.

Brining the sunshine

Yesterday was so grey and cloudy. I decided i wasn't going to let the ugly weather get me down, so i chose to make my own sunshine. I put on the brightest (maybe 2nd brightest) yellow shirt i own. I think it worked. I got to spend the day in Beverly Hills with a dear friend who i hadn't seen since January (i couldn't believe it had been that long). We spent the day window shopping, exploring decorating stores,  and eventually looking at an apartment for her to rent (which happens to be perfect.... praying it works out), and getting dinner at CPK all while dodging rain drops. This wonderful day ended with a gorgeous bright pink sunset as we drove home from LA.

Here are a few pics from the day

Just kidding....
Well i just learned that there is a storage limit for photos. Apparently I have hit my limit. So until i fix this problem without buying a monthly plan i will try and recreate my outfits on polyvore and link you to them. Oh google/blogger how you create problems that i didn't even know were possible.

Lessons learned from a sunburn

1. 3 hours at the beach can be dangerous
2. Sprayable sunscreen is not reliable
3. SPF 30 is enough if it is applied properly over the whole body
4. Some sunburn locations don't hurt immediately, instead they sneak up on ya a day or so later
5. Aloe is most soothing when it is fresh out of the fridge
6. Ice packs work really well for easing the pain and swelling
7. Staying in shorts and a loose shirt is the best clothing choice aside from wearing practically nothing
8. Being sunburned can create productivity (Laundry has never been done so efficiently)
9. Going outside on a sunny day is not a good idea, along with any contact with something remotely hot. (oven, laptop, water...all bad experiences)
10. Next time...if there is a next time...spf 30 lotion will be applied with much detail, and then reapplied once at the beach

{In case you were wondering the tops of my legs (below the knee) got burned, as well as my rib area ( i don't know what to call it. its above my belly button and below my bust). So there you have it. Please learn from my mistakes and put sunscreen on thoroughly.}
