Eye Spy


Now that it is spring and I am focusing on updating my wardrobe I find myself drawn to statement pieces (that I must find a way to fit into my wardrobe). While I am obviously drawn to clothing pieces, I am currently on the lookout for an alternative pair of sunglasses to my classic Steve McQueen Persols (and how to achieve the above eye makeup).

Brooks Brothers: Black Fleece


I love Brooks Brothers - all of their clothes have been a closet staple ever since I could fit into them. I don't know about everyone else, but I love the Black Fleece line. I always walk past the store and finally took the time to pop in. It is definitely more fashion forward and geared towards a younger crowd. I would wear the pink dress in the window...

Happy Birthday Lila!!!


Happy Birthday to my fabulous friend, Lila!

Blogs I Follow



As much as I adore my magazines (hello magazine project - did not forget you!), they tend to build up and have a lot of the same information, just presented differently. This is actually one of the reasons I started blogging (among other reasons). There are a lot of wonderful blogs that I don't know about and I am always looking for new, fun reads. I figured why not share some of my favs for you to read!

Great for: Daily Inspiration

Great For: Daily Fitness Motivation

Great For: Home Decor Ideas

SMYTHE


While browsing the other day for blazers, I was reminded about how much I love Smythe blazers. I think my favorite is the black and white striped one, but I wouldn't complain if I got any of them...

Hostess Gifts


"The hostess must be like the duck — calm and unruffled on the surface, and paddling like hell underneath." Anonymous

I'm always trying to come up with hostess gifts which professional hostess Elsa Maxwell would approve of. Lucky for me I have books and magazine to go to for inspiration! Some favorites to give out include:

Perfect For: Cocktail Parties
Perfect For: Housewarming Parties
Perfect For: Game Night

Perfect for: Afternoon Catch Up Sessions

Tick Tock


Is it Easter yet? As much as I am enjoying my ever expanding food horizons, I could go for some yummy mac and cheese (okay, and a quesadilla...and a cheese burger....). I also could go for some competitive Easter Egg hunts and chocolate bunnies!

MondayMondayMonday


To avoid "a case of the Mondays" as my coworkers call it, I picked up some fresh flowers yesterday and put them in the (adorable) perfect flower train from Ben's Garden my dad got me for Valentine's day - these could not be more perfect!

Cafe Du Monde


After catching up with GCM this past weekend, I developed a craving for Cafe Du Monde.

Open 24/7 (literally the only day they are closed is on Christmas Day and obviously when there is a hurricane), this favorite NOLA coffee spot is known for having some of the best beignets in town. Such a fun spot to meet up over coffee and the perfect treat!





Can someone send me some beignets STAT or (even better) send me to get some!?

I always get so excited for the April Vogue issue - fashion and fitness, what's not to love? It's been confirmed that Jennifer Lopez is going to be on the (much) anticipated cover this year! I can't wait to see what this year has to offer...
