Inspiration Monday - Going Green

Yay, I have actually heard of this week's Inspiration Monday actress!!  I'm not an old lady after all!  This week is Emma Stone, star of The Help, Easy A, and Superbad to name a few.  I haven't seen The Help yet but it's on my list now that I have read the book.

Her outfit was a pretty easy one for me to emulate.  I knew as soon as I saw her green blazer that I'd be wearing my green blazer.  I'm glad too, I don't think I have worn this since October.  Once I had established the blazer, the rest of this outfit just fell into place.

I had a little hair trim this weekend, it had only been four weeks since my last one, but sometimes it just grows faster than others.  I also don't think the person who did it the last time took enough off.  This time I feel like it was about right though, so hopefully this will last awhile!

The weekend was good overall, we had a nice time at the roller derby even though the team we support lost by a couple of points.  It was a really close match all in all which makes for a lot of excitement!  

I baked homemade cupcakes yesterday too.  First time I have done so.  I always use a box.  It was fun to experiment - they are far from perfect, but I think I will get there with some practice!  

On we go into the week.  We're going to be getting some of the coldest air of winter this week.  That means you'll be seeing a lot of sweaters on me I think!
