Summa Summa Summa Time!

What a great weekend! We got our new desk in (pics to come) and our living room is starting to look downright fly my friends. Very excited about it. We also made a trip to DISNEY with the Mr., his little sis and her friend which was a ton of fun. Nothing says family like hilarious, strategic posing on the Tower of Terror. Yes? Those pics will also be popping up here soon.

In the meantime, with the serious overdose (and serious sunburn from Sunday), I've got summer time on the brain which makes me think of ice cream. which makes me think of sprinkles. Right? Okay I may be along on that one.  I also think of the confetti cake that my college girlfriends used to make all the time. YUM!

How delish do all these look?

This Week in Photos

This last week was a total blur but what a great week it was. The Mr. and I got our wedding photos back and they are simply stunning. Here's a sneak peak:
 I also realized I like fruity bourbon drinks. Who knew?!

Have a wonderful weekend. :)

Pimp My Desk, Jonathan

What a crazy week it's been! I'm starting to remember what it was like keeping up a blog when I'm crazy busy, but I can already tell it's so worth it! The Mr. and I got our wedding photos back so I'll be posting some of those soon. Yay! Happy Thursday everyone.  

Speaking of being super busy, I can't help but think of making my workspace a little more exciting. Then I stumbled upon Jonathan Adler. Ugh. Jonathan. He can pimp out my desk anytime.

Arm Candy

And no I don't mean him.

I'm talkin' about bracelets, watches and bangles, oh my! Do you have a go-to set of bracelets or a go-to watch you slip on every morning? I tend to stick to my trusty Michael Kors watch. No joke, I considered even wearing it on my wedding day, that's how much I love it. Don't judge!

I've decided it's time for something new and I love the idea of stacking. Will it be something a little chunkier and fun like J. Crew's latest line?

Or a set of small, dainty bracelets like this one from Jess LC?

Do you have a preference? What's your go-to?

Psst I just heard my wedding photos are almost done! Can't wait to share!

Piperlime Fall Shoe Preview Event

Posting on the weekend?! I know. I couldn't help myself. When I received an email from Piperlime this morning I was reaching for my wallet faster than you can say sale! Yours truly has been perusing the bootie market lately (which I never thought I'd say) and I found some good finds in this sale!

This Week In Photos

Ahhh Friday. I've missed you. What a week it's been! If you're visiting my new blog from my old one. Welcome! I'm glad you're here.

Here are a few snapshots from this week.

The old coffee table :)

 The new coffee table + 
You deserve to have a good time after a hard days work.

Delicious home made pizza made by the Mr. and I. Yummm!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone.

Coffee Table Love

Well, well, well. What do we have here? I'm sorry, that's rude. You can't actually see what I'm looking at.

I'm looking at plenty of Crate and Barrel gift cards from our wedding and boy oh boy am I excited about using them for a new coffee table.

Why are we looking for a new coffee table? Well, because this is what happened at Thanksgiving last year.

 I mean, who wouldn't put a coffee table on the couch upside down to clean the floor and think it'd be okay?

This then resulted in me creating a very sad makeshift coffee table out of an Ikea ottoman and a mirror. Okay the makeshift coffee table isn't that bad but it's time for a new one!

So! What to choose..what to choose.

Thoughts? We're going for rustic..woodsy...modern..Yes? I'm so excited!

Now & Later

Have you seen these Now & Later articles popping up? Now that we're in mid-July, Fall is starting to rule our minds and obviously our potential summery wardrobe purchases. Fret not though! These articles help you take that Summery frock into Fall fashion in no time. So far I've seen this on Shopbop, LHJ, and InStyle and they're all genius. Here's what I mean.

Bananas, right? Are you starting to dream of Fall boots, jackets and jeans, too?

DIY :: Ikea Dresser

I love a good DIY and anything that has to do with sprucing up a cheap item and making it fabulous, I'm so in. Have you seen this phenomenal post from Sherri Cassara Designs? I die.

Can you say "inspiration?!" I'm running to my nearest Ikea this weekend to buy this:

and maybe a little bit of this

and a few of these.

Do you have any good furniture DIYs? Do tell and wish me luck this weekend!

Refreshing, Isn't It?

Lately I've been coveting my cucumber water. Sounds a little snobbish but seriously, don't knock it 'til you try it. It's so refreshing!


Grab a glass of water (or even a pitcher of water!) and throw a few cucumber slices in. Enjoy!

Mint, Please.

My love for mint green everything leaves me weak at the knees my friends. I'm serious. It's always on ma' mind. These photos have left me drooling yet feelin' so fresh and so clean (clean!) at the same time. Have you caught the mint bug?

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8

Yum. Yes?

PS I'm not a fan of mint and chocolate together and I've never met another mortal who feels the same. Am I alone on this?!
