i love...

freckles. 

They mask blemishes && they're super cute. It seems that I only really have them when I fake bake and since I don't do that anymore my freckles aren't as apparent. I'd like to have freckles like my grammy had...

A little late...Manicure Mondays.

Nail art has been on trend for awhile now...(see celebs and other blogging ladies):

Jessie J (my fave celeb :])
Here are just a few of the many photos of her crazy nail art:

Golly, I love her. 


And another nail art obsessed celeb, Rihanna

I'm always late in the game when it comes to trends; I see something I like - jewel toned pants, thigh high boots, small purses with long chains - and I don't jump on the bandwagon until I know that it'll be something that I'll like for a long while. 

Well, I've decided to finally partake in some nail art fun and I thought to myself, 'Why not do what Jennifer @ The Looks For Less is doing and make a weekly post of my nail art?' So, that's what I'll be doing here on WILDyetZenful. Every Monday I plan to showcase a different style of nail art for that week. I ordered a bunch of nail polishes from Amazon and just received everything, so here is my Manicure Monday (on Tuesday) post :] Enjoy loves.

(BTW, Jennifer has a new lifestyle blog, Fab Fatale, that you should definitely check out!)


The stuff: boom boom powprotein base coatmy trusty pink.

do you see the gold shimmer?

paired it with this ring

too many pics? haha


Well, that is it for Manicure Monday. Next week, I'll be on time! 


Hope you had a wonderfully splendid day!

Shop my closet: 70s inspired

Shon and I are going to a last minute 70s inspired party tonight (well last minute to me, Shon already knew about it!). I don't really have any thing in my closet from that era and I don't want to go shopping right now, but I'm going to try to make it work.

Here's what I'm thinking:

  • belted high-waisted bell bottoms 
  • button down, ruffled necked blouse tucked into jeans
  • blazer
  • platforms
  • flowing, wavy hair
  • long pendant necklaces
  • bangles
  • small bag with long chain
Here's what I have:
  • flare low to mid-rise jeans
  • a few blouses that might work
  • a blue blazer
  • platform wedged sandals (brown and gold)
  • high, straight ponytail (remember, last minute, therefore I'm sticking to the 'do I had all day)
  • long black necklaces
  • flashy black bangles
  • no bag with long chain
I feel a little limited in what I have, mostly because a lot of my clothes are black and white. All of my heels are black stripper-esque, and I have a ton of clubbing outfits. I am in dire need of a huge fashion haul, one that is up to date with my changing tastes.

Here are some looks I found that I like:

I really like the clean look of this outfit.

love this.
source
I think bohemian falls under 70s fashion...
I found this outfit through Forever 21
a while back.


Also from Forever 21 lookbook
this last one has to be my favorite; i love the suede vest and the lace camisole and the touch of blue in the shoes.


Here's what I came up with by using what items I have in my closet:

I didn't mean for my head to be cut off, but I actually like it like this :)


So, I probably should have gone shopping because none of these outfits look like the 70s. Shon said the last one looks British. Hmph. Oh well, I'm going with the last one. 


Hope you're having a lovely weekend so far!

i love...

Etsy!
This site freakin' rocks...I mean what's not to love about this:

Etsy is the world’s handmade marketplace.

Our mission is to empower people to change the way the global economy works. We see a world in which very-very small businesses have much-much more sway in shaping the economy, local living economies are thriving everywhere, and people value authorship and provenance as much as price and convenience. We are bringing heart to commerce and making the world more fair, more sustainable, and more fun.


here are a few of my favorite things from some lovely Etsy shops:

This ring is too cool!

These yoga pants:

This photo:
i love lighthouses
i love elephants! and necklaces :)

The above necklace is one of many of my favorites from this store called Ringostone.

this necklace (I'm a necklace fanatic!):
source
I have tons more favorites from this shop that made the above necklace.

I don't think this picture frame would look near as cool without the silver behind it, so I want the frame and the silver stuff haha
source

My favorites on Etsy are mostly: yoga apparel, jewelry, photos & paintings, TOMS, and coin purses and I really want to buy a coffee/tea mug from Etsy. Wanna get me a holiday gift? :)

hope you're having a lovely day!
