Just go ahead and tweet that with the tag #shitgirlssay but I don’t even care. It is going to be AWESOME! Update for Raleigh people: It is a Groupon for English Garden. Check it out!
Weekend in photos
What a fun, beautiful weekend! Not gonna lie, it started out rough on Friday after two botched Craigslist furniture deals and driving to the wrong Wal-Mart to pick up a vacuum (note to self: wait the five days to have it delivered to the house to avoid Wal-Mart at all costs), but things started to turn around on Saturday.

Hunger Games comes out in a week!
I don’t think I’ve been this excited since Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire came out. May the odds be ever in your favor.
Current Etsy crushes
So, I have this weird obsession with Etsy. So much so that I’ve been invited to participate on various “teams” (embarrassing and no, I didn’t accept the invitations) and my favorites list is steadily growing to an unmanageable amount. I relied on Etsy for a ton of things for my wedding and I find it a fabulous resource for vintage, unique items that I don’t have the...
Treat Yourself Tuesday
With all of this rainy weather we’ve been having, I think a really chic raincoat would make it much easier getting out of the door in the morning when it’s pouring. Right now, I’d love to treat myself to this linen raincoat from JCREW: What is your favorite rainy day gear?
Vegas: We came. We saw. We got blisters in our...
For any of you out there planning a future bachelorette party, just go ahead and scrap any other ideas. Vegas is THE place to celebrate a pal’s impending nuptials- whether you are planning for the groom or the bride. This was my first trip to Sin City and I can honestly say that The Hangover’s plotline isn’t that quite outrageous once you’ve been to Vegas. We stayed at...
Tax return treats
Loafers and I are being really responsible and putting essentially all of our tax return money (which was a shockingly large amount for some reason this year- yay marriage) into a savings account that cannot be accessed. Or at least that’s what he’s been telling me. I do, however, get to keep a few bucks and I already know the two things that I want to buy with the extra cash....
I’m off to a most amazing bachelorette weekend. Plan on doing a lot of this: And definitely this: See you next week with pictures and a report on all of our fun adventures in Sin City.
Accessible, excellent art
I’m getting a little depressed looking at our sad and neglected walls, but honestly feel really intimidated to start hanging stuff on them. I also don’t have a budget that will allow for the purchase of a Sally King Benedict original piece of artwork. Luckily, there is a ton of accessible art available via Etsy. Two of my friends introduced me to Leigh Viner, who sells prints in her...
New favorite blog (aka lots of sarcasm and... →
My friend E told me about this blog on Friday afternoon. Needless to say, I spent the better part of the day reading all of the posts and cry-laughing. Some of it sounds like it was written by a younger writer, but a lot of it is really spot-on. Just expect a lot more animated gifs from me from now on. Enjoy!
madewell coming to the triangle [!!!] →
luciwithani: The Streets at Southpoint is adding Madewell, a retailer of women’s apparel, shoes and accessories, to its lineup of new stores opening this summer. It will also be Madewell’s entry into the Triangle retail market. Yes yes YES. A lot of their items make me go “meh” but they come through with great shoes and jeans.
Treat Yourself Tuesday: A two-fer
Welcome to this week’s edition of Treat Yourself Tuesday…with a twist. The other day, I stumbled upon these beautiful and fun cork Kate Spade flats. They were actually calling my name, over the Internet, telling me how much I needed them for the summer: Kinda perfect, right? Yeah. But their price is not so perfect. Well imagine my surprise when I was browsing Ann Taylor’s site...
The Real Housewives of Disney (SNL short) →
I don’t know if anyone of you caught SNL this weekend with Lindsay Lohan hosting, but there were a few pretty hilarious skits. The clear favorite of mine was the spoof, “The Real Housewives of Disney.” When Jasmine said “I slept with Iago…” I almost died. Check it out if you haven’t seen it already.
