Oh hey there camo..... again.
It's no secret that I'm kinna sorta obsessed with camo print. I should stop really, but I won't.

You know those pieces of clothing you get that you instantly fall in love with and want to wear all the time, everywhere? This jacket from Fevrie is one of those pieces. I had already liked it when I saw it online but the moment I pulled it out of the box and put in on, I fell in love. It's loose and lightweight, which is perfect for this sunny but chilly weather we have been having in UT. It's so comfy that I could sleep in it (which I shamelessly do).

I would highly suggest heading over to Fevrie and checking out their amazing collection of clothes and accessories! I'm obsessing over these ombre jeans from their shop right now--they're insanely cute and so unique! To help you out I've even got a discount code to share with you all! Just enter the code "auteurariel" at checkout and get15% off. Happy Shopping!

So I know my post title sounds very..... risque..... but I promise it's real meaning is far from that (hahahaha).

The other day, Connor and I took Samson to a park and for the first time we unleashed him and let him roam around at his own will. I know, I know this isn't a very big deal to most of you puppy parents but Samson has a track record of being naughty and sneaking away from us. Once or twice he has slipped out our door when our backs were turned for like 3 seconds and made his way down to the street--which by the way we live right next to one of the busiest streets in Provo. So naturally from those incidents and my near heart attacks of Samson possibly getting run over, we've been a lot more careful with him being leashed and contained.

It's not that Samson is disobedient. Because he knows his sits, stays, and high-fives like a boss.
Samson just loves people.
Like, REALLY loves people.
He wants to say hi and lick the hands of every person he comes across. And I mean EVERY person.

Anyway, since it had been a while since his last "incident" and he's getting older (he turns one in a month, whaaaaaaat???), we decided to trust little Samson and see how he does..... unleashed.

aaaaand he did great!
He chased us around, explored the trees and bushes, and obediently came running back when we called him. There was ONE time when he spotted a group of people having a little barbecue and joyfully crashed their picnic, but hey. I would have probably done the same thing too soooo I totally get it.

He also made friends with a little puppy named Pinto.
Like the bean. :)
They were too cute together for words.

Oh Samson, you charmer you.

Have a great Thursday friends!

Top: Madison and Sixth
Leggings: Madewell
Boots: c/o Khombu
Bag: old [similar]

First of all, THANK YOU for all your kind words last week on my "woe is me" post! Every one of your kind words helped so much and made me smile. It's so nice to be able to relate to people and know that you aren't alone on things. I'm definitely feeling a ton better this week and a big part of that is because of you folks! Seriously, I love you all.

Now on to this fabulous larger than life POM beanie! Cents of Style doesn't mess around when it comes to their poms, man. This Serena Over-Sized Beanie totally lives up to its name and is so much fun to wear! I've also made a goal to add more color to my wardrobe this Spring so I of course had to go with a bright blue for the color. ;) This beanie comes in six different colors so don't hesitate to get yourself one over at Cents of Style!

Did you guys catch The Oscars on Sunday?
Here are my top five favorite moments--in classic Ariel style--via GIFs:

5) NPH and Anna Kendrick getting trolled by Jack Black in the opening number.

4) The awesome possum.

3) Emma Stone getting a Lego Oscar (and her adorable reaction to it).

2) Awkward face-touching between Idina and John.

1) Lady Gaga's phenomenal performance being praised by Julie Andrews. #queenclarisse

Also, I discovered that there are such things as Seat Fillers at award shows. Who knew??
They are random people who come in and sit in the seats of celebrities who received an award or is about to present an award. Although I read up on it and found out that there are crazy strict rules/no pay if you become one, I still have officially made it one of my goals to become one someday. (:

 Steve Carell, the classiest seat filler of them all.

Hope you all have an amazing week! :)
