These new Nine West pumps Jill and I just got at TJmaxx!!  So perfect for the holidays! I think we should wear them next year for our Christmas card pic, paired with this giant red bow - GG much?

This etsy shop TooSis Jewelry design.  She is an architect who lives in Turkey and makes some of the coolest, yet simple jewelry.  Here are a few of my favorites:

Wish List...

To add on the ongoing wish list of things I love...

This beautiful Vera Wang necklace of crystals and tulle.  It reminds me of a sugar plum fairy tutu.  I've been on the look out for a fabric-y/sparkly necklace, but there are tons of more affordable ones out there!
A soft wrap sweater - this wool one from Anthropologie looks warm but soft and I loveee the color.  I'd throw this on for layers and sneak it into ballet class : )
A fun wonderful tea set!  Just because...
Another ring on sale at Jcrew!  I love the combination of pearls, crystals and gold; this would go with everything and dress things up a bit!
Sheer black dot tights!  I've been on the look out for some like this & haven't found any.  I may just have to order these off Urban Outfitters.  They also come in pink!

A few more fun things...
Fun necklace, great price!
A few of my favorite Blair looks...
Cute gift idea!
My roommate, Jill and I!
Jill's wonderful wedding post!
Perfect puff shoes...and the bargain version!
Pretty esty rings.
Lovely pearl drop earrings.

Finals almost over, ready to get home! Yay!

blair blair blair

Well, I wish I could dress like Blair on a daily basis as well as live her lifestyle so I could actually have places to wear the clothes to.  But for now I'll just have to settle with the fact that I love this coat and it reminds me of the ones Jill and I just got at Old Navy!  If only I could master Blair's perfect curls...

The Joys of Fall

I'm so glad it's finally getting cooler and staying that way!  I now have chance to drink pumpkin spice coffee out of my new favorite mug: my halloween TJMaxx find!  I love the tiny kitty perched on the handle : )  Although I should be studying for my Greek Culture test I have this afternoon I am instead posing with a ceramic cat mug and applying my new Apple Spice lipstick I got in my free gift!  I'm ready for the weekend & Charleston and to see my sister & mom! Happy Friday! 

LOVE these photographs of dancers! Click on "Newest." Thanks Shan!

I Wish I Had

A cat. To take clever pictures with (via Lovelorn Unicorn).

Or at least a hamster to throw a birthday party for (via TVOBT).

But for now I guess I'll just have to settle for these animal-inspired finds:

Cute kitty cups! I want these for my apartment. 

A fun owl tea set! How cute!
I want to snuggle up to this kitty pillow!

I feel like watching Breakfast at Tiffany's today, maybe I will one day this week.  This picture makes me want this orange jacket

I've been wanting some hot pink heels and I found these Kate Spade heels that I think are perfect-minus the fact that they are $300.  Wishful thinking though!  I should have gotten the $20 Forever21 version when I had the chance!  

-I hope someday to be as clever and creative as Jenny from the Little Green Notebook, I love her office makeover post (via COJ)!  
-Such an adorable photo album.
-I wish my halloween cards were this cute!
-Lovely black coat!
-Pumped about next week's Gossip Girl!

Reasons to be Excited About Colder Weather

I can drink hot chocolate all the time.

It's Nutcracker season! Hope to go see 1 or 2 this year!

I can begin looking at cute Christmas cards.

I can wish I could afford this adorable cashmere sweater.

I can wear my new nail polish.

I will have an excuse to bundle up and watch fun movies online.

I get to wear my new boots.
I can't wait!  : )

ps. cutest thing i've ever seen (via PPP).

Fun Earrings, Mugs, and an Online Magazine

These earrings from Anthropologie are so light and delicate. I want them.

Fun bauble ring on sale at!

I am convinced I NEED this mug, as well as the squirrel and chipmunk version.  Adding them to the birthday list.  Thanks Caroline!

I was so disappointed when I found out that my favorite interior magazine, Domino was being discontinued RIGHT after I got a subscription for Christmas.  However, I was so excited today to stumble upon this article about a new online magazine that the editors from Domino have come together to create.  Lonny links the items to their website! How fun!

Decorating a room in all white. (via this is glamorous)

Simple light pink & gold jewelry like this ring.

Happy Weekend!

Tuesday, September 8, 2009


First of all the CW needs to stop coming out with more and more shows that I want to watch.  Second, vampire stories keep popping up everywhere including the new series on the CW:

I suppose it's hard to come up with creative story-lines so once again there's male vampire after mortal girl...will it be as captivating as the Twilight saga?  Hope so!  

-Vampires have a weird history.
-Apparently some people still believe in them.

Sunday, September 6, 2009


I decided to come home for the weekend & I'm so glad I did. I unpacked and hung up my fall/winter wardrobe in anticipation of cooler weather, painted a chair for my new room, sewed my ballet shoes, bought some Halloween & Thanksgiving cards, and will be cooking dinner for my dad's birthday tonight! Some tidbits from today:

-Truthful article.
-I want these earrings.
-Oranizing ideas.
-Pretty home.
-Kitty key covers.
-I wish I was this beautiful & chic.
-Audrey as a ballerina.
-Asian ballet tricks.
-I wish I was sitting in this.
-New from JCrew.
-alice + olivia for Payless.
-Olsens in Fortune Magazine.
-Great deal on pretty necklace!
Happy Labor Day!

Pops of Color

She is adorable.  Jill has been looking for a black trench coat, I think this one is cute!  Especially with her bright red shoes! 

Cute Tea Cup Display!

I love this idea to display teacups!  I love the assortment of mismatched cups & saucers, so cute! 


Now that it costs 44 cents to send a letter, I'd rather spend my almost-half-a-dollar elsewhere and save by using postcards!  To send a regular sized postcard is only 28 cents! What a steal!  I think now I will start collecting them instead of notecards & stationary.  I found these cute ones on etsy:

Cute little animals!
Peacock Love.
Kitty art, of course.

New Series on the CW!

The Beautiful Life: TBL premiers September 16 at 9!  Can't wait to see how it is!

Rainy Day

Today was quite dreary but was fitting for my hangover.  Jill & I hit up Big Lots which revealed some fun trinkets, ate hummus in bed, and watched The Wizards of Waverly place movie.  Selena Gomez was adorable, of course.  Doing laundry would have been much more fun with a cute bird hamper like this one from Urban Outfitters:

This blog always amuses me. (via Cup of Jo).

Today is my first day at my new job being a vet assistant!  I only work the days when kitties are around  : )

Magazines on a Budget

My BFF/roommate Jill & I love to read magazines for fun ideas and inspiration.  Unfortunately we have too many favorites so we found an easy solution for multiple subscriptions - Coke points!   This is the third year we have done this and we currently have subscriptions to Lucky, Teen Vogue, Marie Claire, Fitness, Self, Cosmopolitan, Bon Cuisine, Ready Made, House Beautiful, Martha Stewart Weddings, and there are many other options!  It's much easier to accumulate points than you'd think!  


This lemon pie looks so yummy!  And sounds pretty easy to make

Ashley in Marie Claire

Ashley has always been my favorite and I love the new shoot for Marie Claire! Her clothes, hair, the set is so soft and pretty.

I'm kind of obsessed with cats, but I just can't help it. has the most fun trinkets and things that I love! Here are some of my kitty finds I want:

Cutest postcards ever.

Kitty lamp!

Bake your own cat treats!

There is also a "Crazy Cat Lady" game and action figure, but I refuse to support that because I will not turn out like that.
