BLOG LOVE // SOME RECOMMENDATIONS ON A MONDAY

3

Monday, October 24, 2011


Sometimes I feel blogging can become a tad bit self obsessive. It usually feels fun and creative to share your life with the good people of the interweb, but occasionally when I'm about to post I just get that enough about me already! feeling. Do you ever? In the good spirit of others, I'd love shed a little light on  some of my favorite blogs that I've been reading these days to spread a little o' that Internet love. Enjoy!

1. Live & Enliven
2. a day with kate

4. I ART U
5. a note on design

MUSIC MONDAY // LANA DEL RAY

1

Monday, October 17, 2011




















Lana Del Ray is a hybrid between Nancy Sinatra and Lauren Bacall. A friend passed on her Video Games video to me a few months ago and I was enchanted by her so-cal 60's raspy voice.  Lana is a New York native who created her own music video and uploaded it to youtube. Almost over night she had over 2 million views. Now that's what I call gumption! This gal now has a record label and an album due out in early 2012. Check out her song below and if you dig it, go here for the remix that I just can't stop listening to. Happy Monday!

SKIP DAY

Tuesday, October 11, 2011

i'm having one of those weeks where everything is just-plain-and-simple going wrong. and not to be all complainy-complainerson, because obviously their are people out there with real problems but sometimes life can be a bit overwhelming and one just wants to curl up in bed with episodes upon episodes of breaking bad and a batch of whole wheat belgian waffles and just wallow. days when the gym seems just too far away and those veggies sitting in your fridge aren't at all even remotely appetizing. so, i'm taking today off, officially, and will resume being a working part of society tomorrow.

also, any magical mood lifting tricks you've got in your bag, i'd love to hear em'!

CONFESSION

5

Thursday, October 6, 2011


i've been holding onto this photo for months figuring out a post i could write around it. and then i just thought, "enough excuses, just do it!" so, here's the thing, sparkles, aka glitter. aka confetti. aka any pile of shiny bits of color piled on top of each other are a teeny-tiny obsession of mine. my nickname in high school was sparkles22 and i was known to sport many a t-shirt in college with a splash of shimmery goodness. nowadays my sparkle craving is a bit more under control; but my favorite clothing pieces consist of a blue shimmery skirt and a 60s flapper dress with beads and, you guessed it, sparkles. anyway, the cat's out of the bag. forgive me. i thought i should come clean and admit it. i'm only human.

p.s. just to be clear, i don't do tiara's. or sparkly flip flops. or chunky glitter eyeshadow. i stick to vintage sparkle and flare; a homemade paper crown with craft shop glitter, confetti on the the make-shift dance floor in my living room, glitter pine cones at christmas and shiny bike streamers. you feel me. are we still friends?

ADELE VS. MADONNA

Wednesday, October 5, 2011



I was at a wedding reception last weekend and Madonna's Holiday came on. And then 3 seconds later Adele's Rolling in the Deep came on. TOGETHER. My ears flipped out! This is, I have to say, the best remix I've ever heard. Sit back. Relax. And Enjoy!

THE WEEKEND

Monday, October 3, 2011


barefoot contessa's rosemary potatoes | birthday bouquet from this amazing lady | a gifted bike from my dad! | scout's new favorite toy | streamers & sun

The weekend was a fairly uneventful one. I'm on a 30-day no sugar diet (AHHH HELP ME!) and so I try to avoid any place and anyone that may have sweets hidden in their pockets. I did take a cruise on my new bicycle, checked out 50/50 (love that Joseph Gordon Levitt!), did a lot of hiking with the little pup and watched the season premiere of my favorite show, Dexter (anyone else a fan?) I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend!

p.s. check out a little guest post I did about fall here!
