Happy Friday! Here’s what I’m loving this week:


I bought this dress in black from H&M last month and I’ve worn it once a week since I got it.  It’s super comfy and best of all, it’s only $18.

This picture was not taken this week, but I came across a blog post of a collection of Bush 41’s socks, and whenever I see him with his crazy socks it makes me happy.

I loved this dress on Kim Kardashian this week.  Yes, it was a little too booby, but I am a sucker for a full-skirted dress.

This photo makes me nostalgic.  Time for a SATC marathon.

I ran across this post on Tumblr this week.  Does anyone else remember this book from childhood?  I remember it scaring the bejebus out of me.

The plethora or Leo Oscar posts still are making me smile.

The Real Housewives of New York City is back on. #TurtleTime

Last but not least, check out my latest post on The DC Ladies.  Have a good weekend!

Happy Friday!  I have been light on posting lately because my Office Design class has been consuming all of my free time.  I presented the design portion of it last night, now for the rest of the semester we are going to be doing the nitty gritty part building it and making construction documents, so that’s going to be all kinds of fun.  So here’s hoping I can get caught up on life before things get crazy again soon.

Here’s what I’m loving this week:

There is a petition to The White House to make MLB Opening Day an National Holiday.  Consider signing, friends.

This quote by Candice Bergen, and Making It Lovely in general.


Hipster Will & Kate. Ha. Love this.



Illy Issimo Latte Macchiatos.  These are currently my jam.  They are a great grab and go drink when I’m running late and don’t have time to stop at Starbucks.  (But what the heck is cellulose gum carrageen?)

US_lattemacchiatoThis Marianne Williamson quote.  “Your playing small does not serve the world.”

mariannewilliamson{I made this, please credit me if you would like to use it elsewhere.  Emphasis mine in the quote.}

And last but not least, this.

PPPS- Do you find the text hard to read with this new blog lay out?  Let me know if it’s too small or too light.

The Pinterest bug has bit me hard and I have discovered all kinds of fun things on it…. like egg white and lemon face masks (seriously, this works!), coconut oil as a moisturizer, the easiest ever way to peel garlic (again, seriously, try this)…. Besides all these goofy little things I’ve developed a new found love of Chanel from my frequent Pinterest browsing.  Her clothes, her style, and her quotes.  Here are a few, or a ton of my favorite quotes.

And lastly one of my favorites…

“I don’t understand how a woman can leave the house without fixing herself up a little, if only out of politeness.  And then, you never know, maybe that’s the day she has a date with destiny.  And it’s best to be as pretty as possible for destiny.”

-Coco Chanel

Pour Yourself A Drink


“Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick, and pull yourself together.” -Elizabeth Taylor

I’ve had a rough week, so this made me smile.  Hope this day/ month/ year is treating you all better than it is treating me.

To Be A Virginian


To be a Virginian either by birth, marriage, adoption, or even on one’s mother’s side, is an introduction to any state in the Union, a passport to any foreign country, and a benediction from Above. -Anonymous

Come With Me


“Come with me where chains will never bind you.  All your grief at last, at last behind you.” -Fantine, Les Misérables
