It’s true, I have moved to a different location. Please follow me at my new home here. It’s a new design and I’m lovin’ it!
Happy Friday indeed! Now, for most people it’s the end of your week, your saving grace that you’re able to rest for a couple days, have some BBQs and enjoy sleeping in. However, for me, my weekend is Mon/Tues, so I’m just now getting in the groove of my week and headed in for a busy weekend at that at the bridal store. But here’s to you and “Happy Friday!”
My favorite pin of the week! Make sure you check out my pinterest, because I’m probably pinning about 4/5 times a day. I do it while I walk my dog, blog, eating breakfast, and when I’m trying to find inspiration for just about anything. I’m a pinning feign.
New book club read and it’s an easy read at that. If you liked The Other Boleyn Girl, you’ll definitely like it. I just started but so far so good!
Speaking of book club, the three of us girls in my own book club had our first outing together and we went to see The Great Gatsby. First of all, I was a fan of Leo before, but now, whew! Those eyes (sigh) and all of his choices and expressions were awesome and I enjoyed it more than I thought I would. I was a little nervous about it, since I was really annoyed by Daisy’s character in the book, but surprisingly the movie left me feeling exactly like I think it should have. There’s so much hope and fun in the beginning and then in the end…well I don’t want to ruin it if you haven’t seen it or read the book. Read the book, go see the movie.
Again, Happy Friday!
It’s all about the braids and bows this week. Can’t get enough of them and I can say with absolute confidence that they aren’t going anywhere. The “trend” is not a trend, it’s classic. Braids will be what I wear tomorrow and I’m excited to try some new tutorials I’ve found on pinterest. (Perhaps do a tutorial on here? Hmmm.)
Bows have been in the hair for my manager and I all this week, usually paired with something a little more masculine, like a flannel shirt and boots. I love it both ways, but I’m very excited to try the scarf bow for my hair. I have a brown polka dot one that I am eager to use, and we all know how I feel about polka dots!
Have a great weekend! And don’t forget to wish your mama a Happy Mother’s Day!
Mother’s Day, as I’m hoping you know, is right around the corner. This coming Sunday in fact. Don’t forget the woman who gave you life!!! My own mom, is wonderful, and is definitely amazing at just about everything. DIYs, finding the coolest vintage items to repurpose and make her home look like a magazine, always there when you need her, fashionable, and great caretaker. Loving and considerate, compassionate, and strong. She’s pretty much awesome.
Now for a little explanation on the above. If I could get my mom a pool, I would, but seeing as this sort of “item” is not easily mailable from California, might have to hold off. But like I said, if I could, I would!
Mom has a lot of necklaces, and seriously, she wears each one for different outfits. Love that. She most definitely has more than I do, but you know a necklace is always a great gift for her.
Candle sticks are something I would say both her and I are addicted to. Anytime we see really cool candle sticks we grab at the chance. Just really easy, really pretty additions to any room. The decorator in us is obsessed!
One of Mom and I’s favorite things to do when I’m visiting home, is sit on the couch together and look through decor magazines. We’ll have our coffee in the morning and just chat about ideas we have or just silly stories. Getting her a magazine subscription to one of them may be hard, because she probably already has them all, but I should be able to find at least one she doesn’t have. …right?
I know it’s a little early perhaps, but since Mother’s Day falls on Sunday, wanted to go ahead and say…Happy Mother’s Day!!! I love you!
Happy Friday!! Woot Woot! Time to enjoy that gorgeous Spring weather, maybe hit the beach for some sun, and catch up on some classic readings. Hope everyone’s week was exhausting so that we enjoy the weekend that much more! As this upcoming Monday marks when taxes are due, I am super thrilled that I have already turned mine in and NOT doing my usual procrastination.
I am in LOVE with this house! I see it every morning on Emma and I’s morning walk to the park. Just so cute, if I could hug this house, I would.
Ah, the bridal store. Styling is my thing. In Bridal. Woot. Woot. I assure you though, I thoroughly enjoy it and it is very rewarding to be a part of my bride’s special day even that little bit.
Filmed PERCEPTION this week and had a fabulous time. Excited to do IT’S ALWAYS SUNNY IN PHILADELPHIA in a couple weeks!
Have a great weekend guys! You deserve it!
Excuse me, but who wouldn’t? As Hollywood’s “Jay Gatsby,” or any other role of his for that matter, yes. Yes, Leo, I will kiss you. 😉 For your pure enjoyment.
These beauties are now in a few vases here and there in my apartment. They definitely go with our shabby chic decor, and the soft pastel blue is very calming. Emma and I have been taking long walks in the morning which is very soothing, and the hydrangeas just bring the outside in. I think a must have for adding a little color and de-stress from your busy life!
Speaking of de-stressing, spring cleaning may give you some anxiety at first, but let me tell you, you will feel SO MUCH BETTER when it’s over. This site here has a fantastic check off list to make sure you are good for another year.
And last but not least, it was my roomie’s bday Monday, and Tay and I completely surprised her!! We covered her room with balloons and streamers and they outlined her bed, so it looked like a canopy. It was awesome! This was her card/poster and you’d think this wouldn’t take us very long, but we had to plan it out, get the candy, and don’t be fooled, we totally used a pencil first. Had a great time though and I’m going to try and upload the video of her seeing it when she got off work. Tay? We did good girl, well done! 🙂
Have a great weekend y’all!
Sarah Janks Trunk Show was at the store this past weekend, and Tay and I absolutely LOVE her! Her gowns are exquisite! And they feel AMAZING! And hey, a girl can dream about the Oscars. If it happens, (I mean that’s the plan), I’ll be set in this oyster colored silk charmeuse gown. If you ever get a chance to try her dresses, or perhaps you are getting married soon, let me know girl, I got yah covered. Have a great weekend guys! I’ll be in New York next week shooting a webseries for my dear friend from college. Going to be a definite weather change from here in LA. Eek!
As a gift, I’ve been given three months of Birchbox. It’s possibly one of the best gifts you can give a girl, especially a blogger girl. Birchbox sends you 4-5 samples of new products in a small little box once a month. Sometimes I get a hot new nail polish or others the most amazing lip balm that makes my lips feel perfect as soon as it’s on. Try it for yourself. It doesn’t cost an arm and a leg at all! 10$/month! Sounds like a win, and for me, it most certainly is.
After my last post on Friday, Devin and I had a double date night with some friends and ended the night with some hard core games of Rumikub. Never played it? or even worse, never even heard of it??? It’s an instant obsession. Better get your game face on!
Birthday Girl, Liz, decided Korean BBQ and karaoke was what she wanted to celebrate with, and I can honestly say there was some stumbling and some really bad singing going on. The best part of the night was definitely when all the boys got together for the perfect boy band show down and sang some Backstreet Boys “Everybody.” ….uhh, yah.
Oh gosh, go ahead and say it, I’m completely domesticated. I know, I know. But let me say that being part of a girl’s night book club has been one of the best things of this new year. We agreed to read Hope, A Tragedy, which was great. Comedic and interesting, an easy read, but some say pretty controversial. I think, read it for yourself and you can say what you like. It was great getting to know the girls more, and everyone’s contributions to the menu were fantastic. Fruit plate, veggie plate (not pictured), kale salad, and a lemon tart topped with raspberries for dessert was totally on par. We had a wonderful time sharing our thoughts on the reading material and can’t wait for the next on April Fool’s Day! We are scheduled to read The Great Gatsby, (uh, already started and can’t put it down. WHY haven’t I read this before!), and The Story of Edgar Sawtelle, a heartwarming story about a mute boy and his dog companion. Lookin’ forward to it ladies!
I think it was about time for some new glasses. I ran out of contacts about a month or so ago and have been wearing my glasses since. I like my glasses but I feel pretty dorky sometimes when I constantly have to push them back up on my nose. However, found this wonderful little place close to home, and not only were they THE sweetest people alive, the doc told me my eyes have not only changed prescription, but they have actually gotten better! Woot Woot! Go eyes! Not that there was a dramatic change, but enough to make me feel good about it considering family history. 🙂 And while waiting to check out, I found a few eye glasses that struck my fancy. I love glasses. There’s something so smart about them. A little sophistication if you will. And I will! I found some Vera Wang’s that I love! I pick them up tomorrow! 🙂 I feel smarter already. I mean more smart. 😉
Oh how silly we are indeed. A great and very busy weekend with full appointments all days. We definitely love our job, but at the end of the day, we are craving that glass of wine. Nice little way to end the day. But hey, I do get to work with my best friend and I’d say that’s pretty awesome. The wine is just the cherry on top! 😉
Tay was my “Dark Vixen” on Saturday. Selling three gowns that day, she rocked it and looked very stylish doing it.
Can’t tell you how comfortable I was in this! And I guess it’s an early start to spring, but I am having a very fruitful time as I’m realizing how many coral pieces I actually do have . …hehe.
Hope all had a wonderful 3day weekend! Book Club was last night, so I do have updates for you for My Many Musings on Friday. Also a great picture from a karaoke bar of all the boys gettin’ down and jiggy with it for Liz’s birthday! Priceless 🙂
