food trip

February 29, 2012 § Leave a comment

I’ve never been to Canada, but I’ve always wanted to visit. That’s one of the great things about living over here in the Burgh, is that I can drive there in a fairly reasonable amount of time.

One of my favorite food bloggers, Marysol of She Eats Bears, opened a cafe called Edgar in Quebec and it’s kind of been a dream of mine to go there and eat her food. Since I have too much time on my hands, I googled how long it would take to drive to Edgar from my house and it’s only a mere nine hours! That’s like a trip to San Francisco from San Diego. Weekend trip anyone?

a tale of two cities

February 29, 2012 § 3 Comments

I say this a lot, but I MUST have these prints. I saw the Pittsburgh one on Pinterest, but the shop Lucius Art makes them for a bunch of cities including my beloved San Diego! I would love to have both hanging together for both of my cities. Seeing this little Pittsburgh print makes me like my new city even more.

to sleeve or not to sleeve

February 28, 2012 § 2 Comments

Lately I’ve been loving the look of a sleeveless denim jacket paired with a sweet dress or girly skirt. Rather than buy a new one, I think it would be so cheap and easy to just buy an old denim jacket from the thrift store and seam rip the sleeves off! I think I might head over the thrift store tomorrow and see what I can find … for now I will just find inspiration from these vests.

DIY around your neck

I keep thinking about making this DIY I saw on Pinterest. Just take a strip from an old T-shirt and sew in a piece of lace and voila! adorable handmade scarf.

soap and a prayer

I’m in love with the packaging for these soaps by Herbivore Botanicals. I remember when I worked at Sephora, we had this essential oil by Decleor (which is a great brand by the way) that was made with ylang ylang. It smelled so good and I bet this soap does too!

foodie awards

February 27, 2012 § Leave a comment

Did you watch the Oscars last night? We did! And had a little party at my sister’s house. I thought the show was kind of lame – Hugo won everything and I didn’t really care because I haven’t seen it – but my sister made amazing, best picture nominee-themed appetizers like yummy seasoned carrots and brussel sprouts for Warhorse, Hawaiian bread sliders for The Descendants and we brought a chocolate pie for The Help (you know why …) And we all dressed up, of course!

What did you do this weekend? Did you see the Oscars? What do you think of the winners?

a “well” made outfit

I have decided that I need to own these items and wear this outfit. Did I mention I’m so excited too because a new Madewell store is opening near me this summer! I can’t wait.

diy catcher

February 23, 2012 § 3 Comments

Today I made this little dream catcher necklace while watching an episode of Gilmore Girls. I saw a DIY on Pinterest from this blog (mine’s a bit smaller). Have to say, I’m really digging it!

Love my RetroCam app that I used to take these photos!

eye for style

Usually I don’t like cat-eye glasses or sunglasses on myself. But, I have to say I’m really digging these retro glasses from Back Thennish Vintage. That kind of pale colored, translucent plastic frames are really growing on me too!

How amazing is this living room hammock? Wouldn’t it be the coolest addition to a super chic home? Love it.
