the last days of spring

Is today really the last day of April? So long birthday month, hello summer. Today I am longing for the weekend. Four days down, one to go.

hors de prix

Have you seen this movie? You should. I would do anything to look like a sophisticated, sexy French woman. Audrey Tatou is perfect in this role. Her wardrobe is a dream. And the plot is cheeky and sweet. Lovely and Priceless.

I could live in this hotel. With the sights and the soundtrack and the tans and the french rolling off the tongue, the movie paints such a romantic picture of the South of France, with just a little bit of quirkiness thrown in.

Oh this hair and makeup. I am stealing this look, seriously. I would also love to raid her wardrobe. All her clothes fit her skinny little frame like a dream. Maybe there is something to that whole French Women phenomenon. At any rate, rent this one ASAP.

a very important date

My birthday is on Monday, so in order to properly honor it, we are celebrating tomorrow with an Alice In Wonderland/Mad Hatter Tea Party themed party. (Yes, I am 12. No, not really.) We are setting up and baking tonight and I cannot wait for tomorrow. Should be a blast! I hope you guys have a wonderful weekend. I will post pics next week!

A very merry unbirthday to you!

Along with that happy birthday, I would like to wish you all a Happy Earth Day! Isn't our planet wonderful?

oh happy day!

Happy birthday to the most beautiful, loving, kind, caring, intelligent, level-headed, sweet, wonderful woman I know-my mom! My mama is one of a kind. Tip of the top. Cream of the crop. And my hero. Good news for me is, people say I am her mini-me. I can't wait to celebrate with a margarita tonight. Love that little lady.

Cheers mom.

georgia on my mind

Has anyone ever been to Savannah, GA? We are thinking about heading to the deep south for C's birthday in May. I have this thing for Southern charm and a good Southern drawl and quaint little towns. And sweet tea and comfort food aren't too shabby either. Seems like Savannah would be idyllic. What do you lovelies think?

Oh my lovelies, how sorry I am! I know I have been absent from this little blog for far too long. Did you miss me? I certainly missed you. I promise I have lot of sweet little nuggets for you, including my pics from NYC, an Alice themed birthday party for grownups, ginger love and more. Let's pinky swear to visit each other more often. Now hug it out. There. That does it. See you tomorrow with some goodies. I PROMISE.

i will take one of each, please

Seriously, love. My birthday is coming up at the end of the month and I would gladly open one of each of the following:

Steven Alan Slit Pocket Short, $165. Lengthy, high-waisted, tan seersucker goodness. I saw these in a small S.A. boutique in Bklyn, and it was love at first sight. 

Shiny strawberry blonde hair, as seen on the cover of the current N.E.E.T. Mag. This one will probably have to be self-subsidized.

This lovely anemones print from etsy seller Kari Herer. Or any of her Paris market prints would do.

Banana Republic Glam Bib Necklace, $69. This would match everything I want to wear for spring and summer. Seriously, everything.

These Christian Siriano for Payless shoes (top left and bottom right), $25-$45. Ok, so they won't be released until Sept, but maybe an IOU?

Also, I wouldn't mind a beach cruiser bicycle, a classy helmet, a green rainfall showerhead, a white down comforter and a giftcard to Starbucks. Just a few hints for anyone who may need one. 

the jewels of ny

Joanna blogged today about the beautiful bedroom (above) of Diana from jewels of ny, just in time to coordinate with my obsession of all things NYC (only further elevated due to my recent vaca there). D*S posted more pics of Diana's apartment, as well as some of the apartment of her business partner, Lisel. I adore all of the soft colors, the vintage touches and the clean, almost empty space. Oh to be a hip New Yorker.

P.S. Pics from my NYC vaca to come tomorrow or this weekend. Have a happy Thursday!

and you only get one

Only Got One, Frou Frou

This song has been running through my mind lately. This is the only life I get. I am young and in my prime years for exploration and new experiences. Shouldn't I be making the most of it?
