I love you and I like you

I'm still dealing with the end of Parks and Recreation. It was incredible and very emotional. We had waffles for Leslie Knope and I sobbed like a baby. It's always a wonderful feeling to grow alongside a show and I've been with this one since the second season. There's no bond like the bond formed when someone gets your Parks reference. This show was a true gem amongst mediocre mainstream culture. I don't know that I've ever watched something with such strong female characters that are gettin' shit done and that's part of the appeal to me. It was as intelligent as it was funny and that's not always easy to pull off. Did I mention how perfect every single person in the show was? 'Cause they were and I'm half crying just thinking about it. I get REALLY involved in shows and so, this is pretty standard for me when a show ends for good. Probably also the only time I'll ever admit to sobbing into my waffles. If you've never seen it, please DO IT NOW. Your life will forever be altered.

I'm so in love with this scarf and will pretty much wear it with every single outfit I can.

My go to eye look is a simple cat eye and in real life it looks pretty good. But in photographs it kind of disappears. Someone, help! Is there a way to make a cat eye noticeable in photos and not ridiculous in life?

  1. I get really involved with shows and the characters too! I was so attached to this one also, and couldn't stop thinking about it for a few days after the finale. I really liked how hilarious it was but still full of so much heart. I don't think another comedy has made me cry so many times throughout its run. And it was impossible for me to pick a favorite character- I really loved what their unique personalities brought to the group! I can't help with the cat eye because I don't get how to use eyeliner- haha. Love, love, love your hair!

    1. This is so true. I could never pick which one I loved more. They were all perfect in their own ways.

  2. TOTALLY!!! We only have Netflix--no cable--so I won't see the last season for a while. But I am already preparing myself for the end. I love that show so much!!! And having waffles while watching the last show sounds amazing. I think I will steal your idea if you don't mind! Love the mix of galaxy print and polka dots!

    1. I only have cable because my boyfriend works for the cable company. Before that I just mooched (still do) off people's hulu accounts. Next day tv!

  4. I'm coming to Parks and Rec from the opposite end - I spent years hearing about how good it was, but after several false starts, I'm just starting to get into it. I think it helped that I skipped several episodes in the first season, so I was at a point where they found their feet a little bit but I didn't miss too much plot. I'm really liking it now, I can't wait to see where everything goes.

    1. yeah, the first season isn't the best, but once you get past it -- it's so good! It was definitely a slower starting show, but well worth it.

  5. That scarf is so you!

    I've heard such amazing things about Parks and Rec, but we don't have cable so I've never taken the time to get into it. Might have to now.

  6. Ok I think galaxy print and polka dots are meant to go together now. This looks so good! Also I'm sad about Parks and Rec ending too. All the characters are just so perfect. At least we can rewatch on Netflix!
    As for cat eyeliner. You can try extending the wing a bit. It might be weirdly different at first but I think it looks really cool whenever I do it. And lifting your head a little in pictures and looking down can make your eyelids show a little bit more. I think you already look good though!
