Alley Cats

Yesterday we had our very first youth event at Alley Cats, a bowling/arcade/laser tag place. It was a lot of fun and I was able to catch a few good shots.

I'm partial to our sneaky looking mustache photos^_^ Did you do anything exciting this weekend?? I tried to relax as much as I could because I know this week will be extra busy... OH and in case you haven't seen, I've put my March sponsors up! I'll be introducing them to you this week, but I just couldn't wait another day to share them with you. Go check em out!

Color Crush: Mint

I fell in love with mint this time last season. I think it's so so pretty and fresh. I was reminded by my love for this color when I went to Wal Mart this afternoon. I was pa-rousing the nail polishes and there before me I saw not one, but FIVE different brands carrying a mint colored polish. I remember spending hours last year going to several different shops, online and local, trying to find this color. Luckily I found it by China Glaze and now that everyone offers it now everyone else won't have to search so hard. ha. Do you like mint?

A little date night

The Mr. has been terribly busy with work this past week so I haven't seen him much, SO he came to Wax. lastnight after he got off work and took me out to dinner^_^ I love little dates! 

We drank peach tea {one of our faves!}

I made him sad because I "accidently" ate both of our 
chocolate mints... oops!

Then we ended the night with Starbucks and hulu. ^_^

He's just the best.

Sponsor: Lily Love

Hello hello!! 
I'd love to introduce you to the way cute Che'Lyssa of Lily Love.

I'm just 23 year old Hawaiian girl, born and raised in the islands, with an itch for creativity living deep in my bones. I absolutely love fashion and anything vintage, to writing and photography. I started Lily Love back in 2009 as just a little creative outlet for my heavy heart. You can find my share of random finds, recipes, my wardrobe and everyday happenings. I've learned to stay inspired and let the relentless imagination take its inevitable course. I hope Lily Love brings your little heart happiness and joy! Stay tuned, a few projects have just begun and I will be opening a shop in the coming months.

If you haven't already popped over to her lovely little blog, please do^_^
