These looks so good.
{Brownies are so rad}


Lovely Weekend

 Love the autumn wind that is in the air. This picture reminds me of that certain wind. I can't wait until the leaves start changing color. Did you know that I haven't seen autumn for three years?! Nope. It's just been summer summer summer. So I am a little excited. And here are some other things I was a little excited about.

I always lose my sunglasses... wouldn't mind these to replace them.

A lovely cuddle mattress.

I am such a fan of freckles. Love these ones.

Trying to find the perfect sweater... is it found?

Looking forward to this show.

I love this print and the back of this dress.

I'm pretty sure I need this shoe. It's not a want. It's a need.  I always love Seychelles style. They make some really darling shoes.


Head Scarf

Love this tutorial. It makes me want to go buy more scarfs and wear them all the time. 
{Especially because I hate washing my hair.}

After many requests, I finally made a tutorial on how to tie a simple head scarf. It's really, really easy. I did this without looking in the mirror, so that should tell you how easy it is. Let's get started!

Start with a large, square scarf. I like my vintage silk scarves because they're soft and not bulky.

Fold one corner to the other to form a triangle.

Fold the corner down to about the middle, and then fold over again (but not all the way to the edge, because you want it to be a little thicker).

Put the scarf around your head with the ends in the front, making sure the wrong side of the scarf (the part where you can see the folds) is against your head.

Tie it in a loose knot at the front. I like to keep the whole scarf a little on the loose side (it will stay in place).

Tuck the ends behind/underneath the scarf.



Lovely Weekend

This weekend is going to be super busy for us! We have so many plans- the school is putting on a concert, our state is having a fair and my grandparents invited us to see Mary Poppins on Broadway. I am really excited about all of them. Plus I start another job on Monday! Yay!! 

These are just a few things I have enjoyed this weekend.

I am absolutely in love with Cary Grant and North by Northwest is my favorite movie- so of course I loved this "living-in" North by Northwest.  I might make a few purchases this weekend.

Love this little hut. Especially because it played a part in Roald Dahl's inspiration. I am pretty sure I would want to preserve it. Did you know that I actually met someone who doesn't like his work? Imagine! 

I need a new camera bag. My backpack is starting to really cramp my style. I would love one of these.  Early Christmas present?

I would love to turn my books into art! The only problem is that I am always in the middle of 3 books at a time. I don't think 3 of these would fit on my dresser.

This polka-dot skirt is gorgeous. Too bad the price isn't so pretty. Oh Kate Spade! Why must you be so gorgeous and expensive?!

And this blog. It's my new favorite. Maybe because we have the same glasses?



I have a thing for nail polish. Like a huge tub thing. The boy thinks that it's just a tub of 500 of the same color. But I know that each shade really is different. And I wouldn't mind adding these colors to that tub. Love them. 


Have you heard how crazy Target has been with the new Missoni collection? Even the website was on hold!! Trust me- I know. 


I saw this wall here and even though they don't talk about the clipboard wall art {it was about the acorns} I fell in love with it. Matthew and I are always clipping magazines and then we just have a bunch of clippings and ideas and no way to utilize them. THIS IS PERFECT!! I can't wait to get started.



Remembering 9/11 and all the emotions it brought... Even 10 years later. 
NYMag has a wonderful layout of 9/11. Check it out here.

Also check out these instagram memories of 9/11. Touching. 


I'm in need of extra color and brightness in my house. I think some flowers and a lovely vase would do the trick. These pretty ones have been on my mind lately. Now it's just picking the right one and the right color...


Little Lessons

Love this little prints. {Except when life gives me lemons I think I would rather make brownies instead of bacon} 



There are so many times I wish cords were longer {or that my house had more electrical sockets}. Maybe this would solve my problems? It seems like a grand idea.

It's nice because its only an extension cord when you need it- and just a regular socket when you don't. {so there isn't a huge long cord hanging out all the time}
I like this little demonstration.


House Plants

Moving from Hawaii, I have been dying to increase the green around my life {and to prepare for the snowy winter where green vanishes}. The sad part is I know absolutely nothing about plants {and I am not a huge fan of fake greens}. Luckily someone out there does know about house plants and they have made it easy for me to understand... now I have to decide which ones...

No soil required! They thrive in direct sunlight with a once a week misting.

A rabbit's foot fern is one of the easiest ferns to keep inside. They need indirect light and twice weekly waterings.

Pretty plant -- it also sends out the most darling little baby plants! Likes medium to bright light and the top of the soil should dry out slightly between waterings, so keep an eye on it.

This tried-and-true houseplant sometimes gets maligned as boring. I love the huge ones, though; if you cut off an extra leaf, it'll keep in a vase for a month! They like indirect light and once a week waterings.

With really pretty patterned foliage, a prayer plant does well with indirect sunlight and twice a week watering.

They take a little more care and dedication, but they're so gorgeous you have to try. They thrive in indirect light and the top of the soil should dry out slightly between waterings. (Repeated overwaterings is just as bad as underwaterings with these guys.)

The Dr. Seuss of houseplants, Ponytail Palms are virtually indestructible. Happiest in a sunny spot with once a week watering.

Low maintenance, if you have a very sunny spot inside. Water once a week and ignore.


Lovely Weekend

Now that Harry Potter is over... do you think the love will go away? I remember waiting for the books to come out one by one and then waiting again for the movies. It was such fun to be apart of that generation. I think that this print is gorgeous too. I wouldn't mind it hanging in a library or my future kids room.

I wouldn't of minded this roommate... well before I got married.

Dying to do this to my hair... but do you think it would be harder to find a job?

Wanting to buy one of these... wish list updated.

Love this cape... fall wishlist? 

Her glasses and her wedding. Lovely. 


Thinking of...

 Fall is almost here {I really don't feel it but the calendar says it's close}. I love fall colors- well what I think are Fall colors which are rich and vibrant. Here are just a few {very few} of the things that are on my Fall wish list. Sadly none of them are in my budget. But a girl can dream!!
