Let's talk about sunglasses!

Since it's summer (finally) I figured I'd make a post about the ever needed summer accessory...sunglasses!
The left and middle are Alviero Martini sunglasses, and the right are Alexander McQueen sunglasses

Personally when I buy sunglasses, I don't like going the cheap route because I ALWAYS break mine. Scratched up in my purse, crushed, you name it. I always feel like if I get ones that are a tad more spendy I'll be forced to care about them rather than just setting them on top of the car when I open the door and drive off!

I have always liked aviators, so hope you enjoy my taste, haha.

What sunglasses are you guys into this summer season??

After 9 days, I let the horse run free, 'cause the desert had turned to sea

Finally, here's my first look from Las Vegas! I really like the location. Skirt & seashell necklace are from Chicwish!!

Song that inspired this look!


Again, the starfish necklace is from Chicwish. It's seriously so awesome o_o I can't even describe how much I love it!

The back of this top from Motel Rocks is SICK!! It was really comfortable in the Las Vegas weather!

skirt & neckalce- Chicwish
claw ring- Beginning Boutique

Las Vegas: Electric Daisy Carnival

About a week ago Josh & I arrived back from Las Vegas after attending the Electric Daisy Carnival music festival! First of all I want to apologize for my lack of outfits posts recently--I have a BUNCH of looks I've made recently but have had terrible computer problems, along with being really busy! Look forward to 9+ looks from me in the near future!

Secondly, a lot of these photos are from my normal camera, and some are from my phone (Or my Instagram!)...so there's some quality difference in some of these. Sorry about that! Anyway, on to the pictures!

Quite a few pictures here are of horizons/ sunsets/ sunrises!

We saw SO many people on their way to EDC announcing it all over their cars! These people were our driving buddies for a looong time.


Josh & I don't eat beef, but we made an exception for In N Out. :P

Walking around on the strip!

Coolest slot machine EVER!!

I took so few pictures at the actual event! I would have liked to take more, but smart phones die SO quickly. I had my phone off the entire event every day and only turned it on to send/ receive messages...yet it still died EVERY time. So lame!

The second day of the event was kinda bust. There was a huge windstorm, and everyone got evacuated to the grandstands! It was sort of scary at first, but I don't think anyone got hurt so it's alright. The wind was seriously so strong though--there was garbage flying everywhere! I saw a  girl get decked in the face with a take-out container, haha.

We went to a pool party on the roof of the Cosmopolitan! 

We don't sell alcoholic ice cream in Oregon, so we decided to try it! Also, my alien head tequila shot container is so awesome!

At the world's largest gift shop...Josh turns into a sea monster!


Nevada skylines are so pretty!


Other than resizing, this photo is 100% unedited. So pretty!

No idea what this thing is, but it's cool!

I am amused! Matt is not?! Haha

Bye bye Nevada, hello Oregon!

All the goodies I bought! Not very many, but I was trying not to overspend for once, haha. (The small cloth thing is a coaster, and the thing on top of it is a crystal thing I bought for Josh!) The dolphin keychain is awesome and makes a squeaky noise and its eyes light up all red and weird!

Our trip was really fun overall, and I can't wait to go back next year!!
Have you guys taken any trips or are about to recently??

xoxo, lovelies

Chicwish & Shop Lately!

Today I want to share with you some lovely items I received from Chicwish & Shop Lately! All the clothing is from Chicwish, and all the jewelry is from Shop Lately!!

Wore this top in a look already, I can't wait to post it!

I love unicorns! I wish they were real, haha.

Can't wait to coordinate this one--there's so many options!

I've worn this one so many times since receiving it. I really like bracelets like this. What do you guys think of them??

I love this little guy! Been wanting a starfish ring forever, and my wish finally  came true!!

Our new kitten, BOUNTY! June is national ADOPT A CAT month!!

If you've been wondering why I have barely posted to Faltering Bird the past two weeks, there's two reasons! One, because of our week long trip to Las Vegas, (Stay tuned for pics of our trip!!) and two, because just a few days ago we adopted a new kitten into our family. Her name is Bounty! (Named after the iamamiwhoami series of music videos on Youtube)

Initially we were afraid that our small dog, Kibo, wouldn't take to her well. But, he's a very friendly dog, so we went ahead and got the kitten. Turns out...he's OBSESSED with her! He follows her around where ever she goes, licks her face, and whines outside the door of whatever room she's in because he misses her! She seems fairly indifferent to him, but I suppose that's the way it goes with cats. At least she puts up with his barking and licking!

Gahh her little paw is so cute!

She has dopey grey eyes, I love her!

Also have a random picture of Josh & I in a tree from yesterday, because summer is awesome and you should all  go out and climb a tree sometimes!

I've always had cats my whole life, since the day I was born, and it's only been recent that I didn't have any. Having a cat in the house again is really wonderful! We went though a LOT of trouble to get this kitten (With all the feral and homeless animals out there, you'd be surprised how fucking hard it was to find a kitten! That and Craigslist is full of a lot of rude people.) But when it comes down to it, there are a lot of irresponsible people in the world, and because of this, there are a lot of uncared for animals.

Please remember, June is national ADOPT A CAT month! End Petlessness--there's a pet for every man, woman, and child. Adopt one today!

There are many ways you can adopt an animal, including from a shelter or organization, from a friend, from a breeder, or simply coming upon one. There's a big breeder/shelter argument out there, but in the long run, by just obtaining a fuzzy friend, you're making a difference.

Just make sure you have the money to get your animal spayed/neutered before acquiring one, as not having that done is the same irresponsible behavior that creates uncared for animals!

I hope you like my kitty, and I hope if you have room in your life and home for a pet, you'll adopt one this month!!

xoxo, lovelies
