Photo Diary // Early Days

Sometimes, it's nice to sit back, look back, and remember a time when all we really worried about was sharing our Barbies and how to get out of the daily dreaded afternoon nap. I know I always wanted to grow up (and still do), but there's something to be said about being carefree. It may be less gratifying, but sometimes it's hard not to envious of my former little self.

All of that being said, I'm definitely a bit envious of these little gals! I can only wish I was this fashionable growing up. Unfortunately, the 90's gifted me a few too many striped turtleneck and leggings sets, complete with jumpers matching my little sister's. On second thought, maybe I am glad to be older.

Photo Diary // Girlfriends

There are few things sweeter than genuine friendship. The thrill of having true camaraderie and a confidant- whether in trying times or out on the town- is invaluable. I am so blessed to have a wonderful group of beautiful, fashionable, fun and encouraging friends. What joys are there, after all, if one is always alone?

So, to all of my friends out there (you know who you are!), this is for you.

Weekly Favorites

I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend! I spent yesterday celebrating and doing some shopping for my birthday in Dallas and had the most delicious lunch at Mariposa in Neiman Marcus. Before lunch they brought out hot popovers and consumme- such a nice and old fashioned birthday surprise. My favorite thing of all though was the huge sale at J. Crew. If you haven't heard, they're having 30% off all sale items (using code MUSTHAVE online), and I picked up a pair of Cafe Capris and a few No. 2 Pencil skirts for dirt cheap. A happy birthday indeed!

Here are my favorite things that happened in the online world this week. 

-If you've been following along with The Corner Apartment these past few weeks you'll know that I am really into homemade popsicles right now. The Everygirl (a daily must-read if you've never heard of it) did a few more elaborate recipes for summer pops that I can't wait to try with my new Zoku Ice Pop Maker (more on this later!).

-If you're a regular Matchbook Mag reader like me then you'll recognize these ever-so-chic illustrations from EmmaKisstina. Julie from Julie Leah featured some of her celeb-inspired prints and is hosting a giveaway next week!

-A peak into the colorful world of Jonathan Adler (loving this) over at MadeByGirl has me wishing he could style my new apartment.

-An interview with Sarah Brown, the beauty director at Vogue from Into the Gloss. If you're remotely interested in beauty, magazines, or journalism, this is a really entertaining read.

-A fun take on food, illustration and simplicity over at Paper Fashion.

-Atlantic-Pacific always combines colors and patterns perfectly. This little number is no exception!

I hope everyone relaxes with what remains of the weekend- and try to stay out of the heat!

Always Summer

I am back from a most beautiful and relaxing trip in the mountains of Colorado! I would like to first apologize for my lack of inspiring content- family time and other activities (hiking, train to Pike's Peak, shopping, white water rafting, eating, photo session with wolves, pool lounging, more shopping & more eating) took up much more of my time than expected and left me rather exhausted by the end of the day. Second, everyone must stay at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs at some point in their life. It is a luxurious and beautiful place situated in the mountains, a combination I highly agree with. Third, it's officially the first day of summer! I hope you've been living it up and attempting to keep cool!

I'm spending a long weekend in Colorado, and while the time change was only an hour back, it is really throwing me off, especially since we had to wake up extra early today to go white water rafting. All I can say about that is: I need a coffee. Immediately.
