Cuddle Birds

Bombshell Makeup

The fastest way to look hot: cat eyeliner and pale pink lips.


Ah, summer...

Bring on the straw hats and aviators.

Color Pallette for Home Design


I know this is a fashion photograph, but when I look at it all I can see is a couch in that grey color with coral throw pillows and dark turquoise/silver lamp.

Great Outfit

Switch out those glasses for some Wayfarers or Aviators and I'm sold.

Dear blank, Sincerely blank

Ah, love these. More here.

thirteen ounces or less

Did you know that standard postage rates apply to ANYTHING that weighs 13 ounces or less?

Did you know that if you stick enough postage and an address on a random object, the US Postal System will deliver it like a normal letter?

Do you want to run out right now and start mailing silly putty to everyone?


AmberLee over at Giverslog has been conducting experiments to test this very principle. Check out some of her successes here!

Loft Bedroom

Totally want one of these.

Great Colors

She dreams of Italy

Don't we all?

Ooooo, I want one.

The dress of course...

Rachael & Nolan!

Today my dear friends Rachael and Nolan are getting married!

(ps. They've planned a Gatsby-esque vintage-y wedding, can't wait to see how it turns out!)

Rachael has been my dearest friend here in California since I moved back from New York. Nolan and I grew up together - hassling each other mercilessly, but lovingly, since the age of 10.

I arranged their first real date and take full credit for their relationship.

Congratulations dear friends! Husband and I wish you all the best.

Buckle Shoes

For Husband.

Dream Hair

My dream hair is some combination of these:

A perfect napping room




I have a fascination with the art of henna. I'd like to learn more about it.

One of my co-workers and dear friends from New York was from India and she attended a few weddings while we worked together. She would come back to work with the most interesting designs on her hands.

Beautiful Wedding Dress

Another one for Chelsea.

(Ps. Chelsea is my adorable and talented cousin who just got engaged. Congrats Chels! All of a sudden I'm into weddings again.)

Don't hide, but don't show off either.


the knife in the key

Because I love miniature knives hidden in normal/awkward looking objects.

(Image is from here, but I have not yet figured out how to obtain this little gem of an invention.)

Watercolor Bird

A house in the country

A stop and stare wedding dress

I think this wedding dress is stunning beyond description.

Ooo. Chelsea, if you're reading this, that dress would look awesome on you.

Things in jars

Because I'll post almost any picture of a Ball Mason Jar.

Husband's Favorite Breakfast Shake

I am more of a berries and vanilla kind of girl, but Husband is all about the variations on a chocolate theme.

Right now we only have chocolate proteing powder in the house, so Husband wins. (I don't mind, he lets me win most of the time.) Therefore, this breakfast shake has been featuring prominently at our place this week... And its got me thinking... Berries?... What berries?

It is super delicious, keeps me full all morning, healthy (I heart sneeky vegetables), and a single serving comes in at about 220 calories. OH, and it has 5 ingredients.

Husband's Favorite Breakfast Shake (serves 2)

1 cup skim milk
1 banana, large
1 c. pumpkin puree (we have this separated into little baggies in the freezer from last fall when I attempted to make my own pumpkin puree)
1 Tbs peanut butter
1 scoop chocolate whey protein
ice cubes to taste (I like 3-4 just to make it chilled)

1. Toss ingredients into a blender.

2. Blend.
