...is to be so busy doing what you like all of the time that there is no time left to think about whether you are happy.
I've been a busy girl. Work has been a whirlwind of late nights and working weekends. But today. TODAY I am on vacation. In fact I have this ready to be sent, and if I'm lucky, I'll hanging out at the airport when this is posted. (If I'm unlucky I'll miss my flight, like I did on the way to Coachella! Eeks!) I hope to fill my little vacation to the North East United States with food, fun, drinks, shopping, dancing, walking, and pastries. All the things that make me happy!
I'm totally in lust with graphic grey bedding at the moment. It started when I fell in love with the Jonathan Adler set above. At $225 US, however, it was out of my price range. The West Elm has been the one to more recently catch my eye. I love how unisex it is, but also how current. I want!
Love the character of this lodge, and how they have incorporated all the wood to compliment to original building. Fantastic. I wish I could tell you more about the building, but their website is in Polish. Still. Without words, I know I like what I see!
Love these bar cart options. I mean, in theory you don't have to put pretty bottles of wine and liquour on them, they could be useful for a multitude of purposes... but, let's be honest. That's not what I am going to be using them for!
Alright folks, off to the West again for work. Back in a week, and I even have some posts to keep you entertained while I'm working away.
I'm currently looking for a few office pieces. Even though I've been working almost 3 years (as a full time employee... I've been working since I was 16!) I feel my office weardrobe is somewhat lacking. Love this shirt. It's easy and romantic, and also would work well into the fall.
Have you checked out Ruche? They have a cute new feature called Daily Dose which shows you how you can mix and match their clothing into outfits! I wanted to buy the poppy dress and the poetic jacket listed above, but they are out of my size. Still, it's a great way to show you how to be creative with different pieces. Nicely done Ruche!
Happy Mother's Day! My mom is the bestest mom in the whole wide world, and I'm not just saying that because she invites me over for Sunday dinner and feeds me good food! She also encouraged me to go to school for whatever I wanted (a real luxury in some families), paid for me to do competitive rhythmic gymnastics, and then let me quit, raised me on healthy food, and she loves me lots! (This is a shortened list of wonderful mommy things of course.) So tonight I'm going to make her a yummy dinner. It's not quite a fair trade, but hopefully I will have lots and lots of Mother's Days to show her how much I love her!
The first thing you should know is that if you love Starbucks they have half priced frappuccinos from 3-5pm from today until the 15th of May. Do it. I've already had my first! (They do soy frapps now!)
Now that we have that out of the way... I hope you all have a great weekend, and that you get to spend some time with your lovely mothers! My weekend will include a haircut (!), suit shopping for the boy, a birthday party, a hot tub soak, and making a Mother's Day feast of course! And possibly some cake. I can't say any more about that though, don't want to ruin any surprises for the mommy!
I've been wanting a pair of wedges. Even though my tastes definitely run more towards a more ladylike thin heel rather than chunkier shoes, something about this feels sort of "right" this season. Am considering this pair at the moment. If their wedges are as comfy as their flats, it might be worth the investment! Thoughts?
*Edit* - I tried these on in the Geox store near Union Square in NYC last weekend, and they fit like a dream. They were $163 with tax though, and I wasn't feeling able to spend that much cash so I didn't get them. I'm regretting it now as I went to see if they had them in Toronto, and the woman at the Eaton's Centre informed me that they don't sell this style in Canada! Egads! Time for another trip back to the US??
Ok, this is what I want to point out about this wedding. The bridesmaids got their dresses at H&M. I'm SO down with that. I have 7 besties, so I'm hoping to be bridesmaid at least... twice. And I'll buy a dress of your picking for your wedding. But if it's more than I spend on a dress of my picking, I mayyy grumble a little. I'll do it, because you're a bestie, but I'm just saying. These girls look great! If you're only going to wear a dress once might as well get it for under $50, you know?
Also this wedding was catered by Chipotle. Which I just discovered when I was in Florida. And I love.
