I love you B, but I refuse to believe this headline: Beyonce Does Her Own Makeup-And Cuts Her Own Hair Otherwise, what chance do us NORMAL PEOPLE have?!
Treat Yourself Tuesday: Sorbet stripes
I’m loving this Alice + Olivia blouse I saw on a blog last week. The front looks like your typical preppy top, but the back has a fun little ruffle to add a flirty kick to your outfit. Looks like they are sold out for now, for good reason!
Weekend in review
We spent a glorious weekend down at Holden Beach, which included stops in Southport, lots of punch in styrofoam cups and sunburned noses. Summer feels so close! New beach bag at Target. Love it! A pair of ceramic pugs. Still kicking myself for not pulling the trigger on these. However, people may stop coming to my home if I continue to amass ceramic animals at the pace I’m keeping. ...
Blog friends, I’d like to introduce my mother. These were her two texts sent in distress Friday afternoon after my father (the aforementioned “Captain Keds” for his habits and surname) took a tumble in one of of his beloved boats this weekend. Apparently the one-hour-long wait in the ER was a bit too much for Francie, so she sought solace and stitches in a nearby urgent...
Pouf there it is
Now that our patio is no longer an urban jungle, I’m looking for new items to make it a cozy place to enjoy a glass of wine, eat al fresco or have coffee in the morning. I love these little woven poufs from Target- you can use them as ottomans or side tables to hold your drink. I’m also kind of feeling the funky colors mixed in with some traditional elements.

Treat yourself Tuesday: Here comes the sun
I’m looking forward to a long weekend spent at a sleepy beach in N.C. with the husband to celebrate the close of law school. Given my upcoming plans, I chose two items that I’d love to have with me while I’m at the beach: Crocheted straw hat from JCREW. I’m a freak about covering up my face from the sun and I love how a hat stylishly prevents sunburns. I actually got...
Don't be tardy for the wedding
Real Housewife of Atlanta Kim and Kroy (yes, you read that right. Not Kory [which is terrible enough with the “K”] but KROY…yech) are tying the knot and Bravo is there to document all of it. Thank God. This is coming right on time as the husband prepares to finish exams and study for the bar. Set your DVRs for tonight at 10 p.m. people!
Birthday wish list
I’m making the sad, sad transition from mid-twenties to late-twenties in a mere matter of weeks. To help combat the pain, I’m hoping those out there who know and love me will shower me with gifts. I mean, I know I’m planning on treating myself for the occasion. Here are a few pretties that I’m eyeing to ring in 27 (click images for sources): The Edie bag from JCREW in...
Bless their hearts...
Looks like the Giudice girls have inherited Joe’s eyebrows and broad shoulders. Except the third one who looks like her mom is a petite Norwegian and not a tanned female beast who smells like coconut oil and regret. New season premiered last night and it only cemented what I had feared since Gia was just a four year old. Fahbulous! N
Treat Yourself Tuesday: Bag swag
This Treat Yourself Tuesday ushers in the summer season with a beautiful Rebecca Minkoff straw-inspired handbag. I love the edge that the tassels give and the classic touch of the gold chainlink straps. I think this bag would transition well from day to night for practically any summer occasion!
Loafers celebrates a birthday
After celebrating Jen’s nuptials, it was time for another celebration- it was Loafers’ birthday on Sunday! Because he’s currently busy studying for some horrible sounding law exam called Secure Transactions, he wanted to do something low-key. I hosted his parents and sister for dinner. Here’s the table before dinner: The napkins are from Furbish, the glassware is from an...
