Side By Side: Peach & Gold


 I adore colors that are calm and serene, sophisticated and lovely.  I try to keep fresh flowers in my house as much as possible because the scent is so lovely and colors inspire such creativity.  These gorgeous, sparkling earrings are a perfect reminder of that.

Side By Side: Jewels & Pastels

 
As of yesterday we are officially in the Autumn swing of things and personally, I love it.  Autumn reminds me of jewel tones and mixing colors and palettes.  The rich tones in these eyeshadow colors would be perfect for a Fall wedding, don't you think?

[Tuesday's Tunes]

It's no secret how much I adore Gwen Stefani.  I mean, if it could be possible, Gwen Stefani would be my spirit animal. I just think she's completely fabulous.

No Doubt played with Sting during the Super Bowl XXXVII Half-Time Show when they were still in their 'Rock Steady' phase.  I think Gwen is the epitome of old-meets-new glamour as shown in her outfit & hair.  She's just perfection!

Side By Side: Pistachi-oh!

 
I've never really liked pistachios.  I don't really know what it is about them that I don't like...I just...don't.  I love this dessert, though, and the draped panels on this dress show a remarkable likeness to a pistachio, don't you think?

[Tuesday's Tunes]

I was at a friend's house a month or so ago and her little boy was watching a movie called Hugo.  As we're watching this movie, I keep seeing pictures and designs that reminded me of Smashing Pumpkins video for 'Tonight, Tonight'.  It turns out, that wasn't a coincidence.  Both the film and the music video rely heavily on the life and works of Georges Méliès, an illusionist and filmmaker also known as a prolific innovator in the use of special effects.


So after that little history lesson, you've probably realized that today's song is 'Tonight, Tonight' by the Smashing Pumpkins - one of my all time favorite bands.

Side By Side: In The Navy


What is it about polka dots that makes me happy...and hungry?  Perhaps this dress would be perfect for a nice coffee & cupcake date?

Side By Side: Wood Grains



When you're outdoors, but still want to look good and have fun, I'd recommend this awesome speaker to play your tunes and this eyeshadow palette to keep you looking natural but chic.

The Sunday Currently

 
C  U  R  R  E  N  T  L  Y  .  .  .  
 
R E A D I N G a book called The White Princess by Philippa Gregory.  While we can't possibly know what exactly said during those times, we know the basic historical facts and these authors (Philippa Gregory, Alison Weir, etc.) use these known historical facts to create a lush story that makes you feel like you're in that time.  This book, The White Princess, is about the daughter of Edward IV and Elizabeth Woodville (The White Queen).  She was also the sister to the Princes In The Tower (among other siblings), niece to King Richard III, wife of Henry VII and mother to the infamous Henry VIII.
W R I T I N G blog posts for the week as I will be completely swamped with paperwork this entire week at work & won't really be able to be online a lot.
L I S T E N I N G to Live In Las Vegas by Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds.  I could listen to Dave Matthews all. day. long.
T H I N K I N G that I'm going to make little notes and place them in various parts of the house which will remind me to get up and exercise.  
S M E L L I N G my Fresh Bamboo Bath & Body Works Wallflower plug-in air freshener.  Love it.
W I S H I N G for a stress-less week.  Wishing that for my brother as well.
H O P I N G to implement a meal plan and stick to it. 
W E A R I N G yoga pants & my New Orleans Neighborhoods t-shirt.
L O V I  N G that I woke up this morning without a headache & in a good mood!  I better go knock on wood...
W A N T I N G a vanilla frosty waffle cone from Wendy's.  The craving haunts me!
N E E D I N G to get back to creating jewelry for the Etsy store I hope to open in the near future.
F E E L I N G surprisingly calm, generally in a good mood and like I have energy for once!
C L I C K I N G through YouTube trying to find the perfect song for Tuesday's Tunes.  Any suggestions?

[FAVORITES] Gwen Stefani

I am absolutely thrilled that Our Lady of Perpetual Perfection, Gwen Stefani, is expecting her third baby! 


My world just exploded with happiness.  As most of you know, Gwen is my life icon, my spirit animal, if you will.  I adore this woman.



I'll leave you with this gem:

Side By Side: Stars & Stripes


Memorial Day means family fun, cute clothes, BBQ's, sweet treats, swimming....and honoring our soldiers.  Be patriotic, not just today, but every day.  Every day is a great day to be thankful.
