April Showers

30 Mar

I’m off to NYC for a (long overdue) weekend visit to see my bff!

Despite the forecast of rain, rain and a little more rain, I’m positive we will have an amazing time.

If it was a little bit warmer out, you might find me dancing in the rain in something like this:

Super Random Post

29 Mar

This past weekend I turned the big 2-4. For my birthday my parents gave me two incredibly nice gifts.

Adobe Creative Suite with Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator and This David Yurman ring.

One of these things I’m struggling with. Can ya guess which?

Hint: I know how to put a ring on.

If you guessed the creative suite, you win! I learned how to use these programs in highschool and kinda, sorta assumed it would all come rushing back to me.

Like riding a bike.

Welp. I was wrong. So very wrong.

Does anyone know of any good tutorial websites, vlogs, etc?

I’m thinking I may need to sign up for a refresher course, know any good ones?

Any help would be much appreciated!

Anywho…

Tomorrow I leave to go here:

One of my besties lives in NYC and I have yet to visit her. She is my oldest friend and I consider her more of a sister.

We decided not to make solid plans and just go with the flow. I plan on eating lots of yummy food, drinking lots of yummy drinks and exploring new areas.

Gossip Girl has been filming recently near her apartment so if I end up finding a new boyfriend, that wouldn’t be so bad either:

And that’s my super random Thursday post.

A Perfect Sweater

28 Mar

I need this.

It might be the most perfect sweater I have ever seen.

The stripes, the colors and the baggy boyfriend cut.

Perfection.

My birthday in pictures

27 Mar

Apparently all I did during my birthday celebration this past weekend was eat.

Thursday:

My bff who lives in NYC sent mini cupcakes to my office. Such a sweet (literally) and unexpected surprise!

These amazing beauties were sent from Baked by Melissa. A perfect non-guilty snack size treat. (I may have eaten five at once, oops)

Friday:

My co-workers took me out to the new Yard House near Fenway. It was 85 degrees and we chose to sit on the uncovered patio. Let’s just say I now have some funky tan lines (which I love).

Blue Moon and sun. Is there anything better?

Friday:

My little from my sorority sent me these beautiful flowers. Again, unexpected and so nice of her. Love, love, love her.

Sunday:

My actual birthday, my parents came into the city to take me and a few friends out to dinner. We went to Max Brenners, a restaurant centered around chocolate, need I say more?

Monday:

The day after my birthday.

Last night one of my roomies surprised me with these belated tasters from the recently opened Crumbs!

Well now that I can actually see how much I ate, I guess I shouldn’t eat again until my next birthday.

I feel so grateful and lucky to have the friends and family that I do. They gave me the best birthday a girl could ask for.

Birthday Weekend

23 Mar

This weekend is my birthday.

I’m not sure how abnormal I am but I hate, despise and detest my birthday each and every year.

I think it started when I was 13 and officially became a teenager. I’m also sure it has something to do with the fact that I don’t ever want to grow up..ever.

Anywhoo..despite the fact that I always dread this day, it always turns out amazing.

It also seems to remind me just how much I love my family and friends. It’s always hard for me to ask for gifts because all I ever really want is for my friends and family to be with me.

This sappiness being said..I still love a good party. Girls gotta her her dance on. Ya know? If I had unlimited funds to look bangin’ on my birthday, I would wear the following.

Linking with {av} for today’s Friday Fancy

Skirt / Blouse / Necklace / Wedges

I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!

Good night, good morning

21 Mar

┬áSometimes it’s easy to overlook the small details but it is usually those details that make the biggest impact. One easy change to spruce up your bedroom while spring cleaning is to give your nightstand a make over. Add some flowers. Dust it. Change up the books. Declutter.

Waking up to simplicity is calming and I wouldn’t mind waking up next to any of these crisp and clean night stands.

Gold Link Bracelet

19 Mar

I’ve been lusting over big, gold bracelets recently. I keep placing them in both virtual and real-life shopping carts but never following through and making the purchase. My birthday is coming up and I think it could be the perfect excuse to add one of these to my wardrobe.

Marc by Marc Jacobs – Katie Turnlock Bracelet: $128

J. Crew – Classic pave link bracelet – $118

Kenneth Jay Lane – Gold Link Bracelet: $100

Which one should I choose?
