april wish list.

april wishlist.

since spring is now upon us in full force, i'm feeling inspired by bright hues. 

that's why so many of my wish list items for this month pack a colorful punch.

here are the things i'm wishing for in april...

1. sunglasses.
right now i am wearing a poor, battered pair of black shades. spring is the perfect time to amp it up, both in color & fun-factor! i love these teal elvissa c shades - not to mention, they're quite inexpensive.

2. cream blush.
i've been eyeing the nyx cream blushes for what feels like ages. i'll go into ulta, pick one up, mull over the purchase, then put it back down. i plan to change that this month. i've also become intrigued by some blushes of the cream variety on two ends of the expense spectrum: i'd be equally happy with either a top shop cream blush or a kevyn aucoin cream blush. decisions, decisions.

3. scarves, bright & floral.
i am something of a scarf fiend. my collection enjoys residence in an entire drawer of my wardrobe. but... i feel some bright & floral friends should join the party. i love this kate spade sailor stripe yellow scarf, as well as this pastel floral h&m scarf.

4. a good neon accessory.
everyone knows neon is all the rage right now, & i am craving it in accessory form. this river island neon strap satchel or this asos perspex clutch would certainly do the trick.

5. an established routine.
things have been a bit up in the air - shall we say - since i moved here. i'm ready for some normalcy, some security, & really, just some good ole fashioned routine.

6. healthy workout & eating habits.
you may not know this about me, but my workout & eating habits range from look how well you're treating your body, to stop eating the crap that is taco bell as if it is the ultimate in dining fare. with parties & weddings (and, ahem, SUMMER) right around the corner, it's time to re-invent myself. and this time, well... it sure would be nice if the good habits stuck.

7. loafers, especially of the animal print variety.
i've been eyeing animal print loafers with a ferocity unmatched in the animal kingdom. ok, well, maybe not that extreme, but i dare say, close. i'd also love a good, solid pair of penny loafers. i'm just in total love with loafers right now. while these charles philip shanghai sheila loafers in leopard satin may currently be out of my reach, i feel certain i could find some acceptable, more affordable, dupes.

8. revlon lip butter in the shade strawberry shortcake.
it seems as though many people i know have this shade, & while i was apprehensive at first about its lightness washing out my fair skin, i feel certain now that i want to try it. the problem? every time i set foot in a drug store (preferably walgreens), it is sold out, along with sweet tart, another shade i'm eyeing.

9. essie's turquoise & caicos.
this has been on my wish list for many, many months. i certainly am hoping to make it a reality this april.

10. make up for ever hd foundation.
after purchasing this in 2010, i was amazed at the results. i'm thinking about this for wedding day makeup. plus, it'd be nice to see it sitting on my makeup counter again, for daily use.

what are you wishing for in the fourth month of two thousand twelve?


Loving all of these picks! Especially those fabulous sunglasses, too cute! And those leopard loafers are just adorable. Hope you get at least a few of these items on your list :)

about me.

Hello! And welcome to siddathornton.
My name is Lauren. I am 29 years old. Here are a few random factoids about me & my life...
- I'm originally from Louisiana, but I live in North Carolina with my husband, Justin. We aren't from New Orleans. Every time we tell someone we're from Louisiana, this is immediately what they assume. We actually come from a town in northwest Louisiana - Shreveport - which may as well be Texas, it's so close to the state line.
- Due to my love of the written word, I majored in Journalism at Louisiana Tech University. Tech is located in the quaint town of Ruston, Louisiana, and I like to think that attending college in a small town shaped much of who I am today. And as much as I would have liked the overly-romaticized dream of becoming a professional writer to have come to fruition for me, I'm in the midst of a career change, via occupational therapy school.
- There are a few things for which I have an unhealthy obsession: reading, co…

readingFierce, by Aly Raisman. A couple of weeks ago, I finally finished Big Little Lies, by Liane Moriarty, which I really enjoyed.
writing a lot in my bullet journal, including adding photos and keepsakes. It's been a while since I've done this kind of journaling, and it really is my favorite.
listening to the Office while typing out this blog post. Nothing makes me feel better like this show does.
thinking that I am really glad that Justin and I built in some trip recovery time on the back end of our trek to Colorado. It really does take some time to get re-acclimated to the time zone you've returned to. We've both been feeling so tired since we got back.
smelling coffee and donuts. The breakfast of champions.
wishing for some tortilla soup today. I had some at a place called Hacienda Colorado in Denver. It was so good, and I've been craving it ever since.
hoping for a productive and joyful week ahead.

the sunday currently.

When I started blogging on siddathornton back in July of 2011, the beginning of my currently posts wasn't far off. I've long enjoyed compiling lists of what's going on in the moment, but I never thought about making it a link-up or an always-on-Sundays thing until September 16, 2012. As you can read in that post, I was elated, due to the responses I was getting from other bloggers, letting me know that they, too were doing "currently" posts and had decided to dedicate the writing of them to Sundays each week. Thus, The Sunday Currently was born, and I have currently penned over 100 posts, some with over 50 people linking up and sharing what they're up to, too. If you feel so inclined, please join! Let's celebrate the little moments of our lives that we never want to forget.
