Happy Friday! I’m super excited for this weekend because my friend Laura is coming to town and I haven’t seen her since my trip in September! I’ve missed her so much since she moved two years ago. She and I were roommates before we became friends, and every time she comes back to visit it feels like our house is complete again ☺ Keep reading for this week’s favorites!

Last weekend, I was invited to my friend Katie’s baby shower. As usual, I was late, but better late than never, right? ☺ Katie’s mom, Joni, hosted the shower, and she went ALL OUT. Both she and Katie are very crafty (like mother, like daughter), and she made almost all of the decor. Of course, I had to take photos of everything. After a delicious brunch (including a few mimosas!), Katie sat down to open […]

So….I have a crush. {image via} Don’t worry, Conrad! It’s a girl-crush. And, I’m not the only one! The fashion world is totally mad for this Parisian belle, and, with her signature plum lips, big brown eyes, and unique fashion-sense, it’s not hard to see why. Meet Jeanne Damas, French blogger, model, and all-around It girl (God I hate that phrase). Yes, this is a totally superficial love, but we’re all allowed those once in a […]

Confession: This post was supposed to go up yesterday, but Mondays suck time got the best of me and I didn’t get to it, so here it is today! It’s a pretty good one so hopefully you’ll forgive me ☺ In winter, soup is my ultimate comfort food. Paired with a piece of crusty bread and a sprinkling of goat cheese, there’s nothing that warms me up better! Plus, soups are incredibly easy to put together and they […]

Hello and HAPPY FRIDAY! This week’s been a busy one. My mom was here until yesterday morning, and I tried to spend as much time with her as possible before she begins her next job contract in the Central African Republic (CAR). I might have mentioned it before, but if not, she is a public health doctor and humanitarian superstar who facilitates and evaluates nutrition programs in developing countries. Currently, the CAR is in the […]

What is it about late January? The beginning of January is so exciting and full of promise – new year’s resolutions, fresh starts, bounds of energy, etc., – but come January 20th, all I want to do is take a big nap and wake up some time in mid May. Even getting dressed is boring. Me! Bored by clothes! Frickin’ winter. Luckily, I have this time-consuming handy blog, so I do have some motivation to make a bit of […]

An actual recipe post? Can it be? Last weekend, we were invited to a potluck and, on a whim, I decided to make and bring a homemade key lime pie. With it’s fresh lime flavor, key lime pie just screams ‘spring’ to me and once I got the idea in my head, I couldn’t get it out! Of course, I turned to Martha for the best recipe out there. Ingredients (adapted from Martha Stewart):1 1/2 […]
