...cookie dough truffles

Dear Bakerella,

You are a GENIUS. Thanks for all you do.

...two ways to wear a maxiskirt

So I'm obsessed with maxi skirts this summer. (Secret: a couple weeks ago I got tragically sunburned on the back of my legs and had to hide them for a week, my maxi skirt came in handy.) Here are two cute ways to wear one!

...a navy interior

I just bought a condo! (ah!). I'm moving in a month and am completely obsessed with decorating it! I love the idea of every room being a nice light gray, but a navy bathroom...thoughts?

Here's a little inspiration.

...these simple wedding invitations

Semi-obsessed with these lovely invites.

...this madewell bag

for summer!

(I also love her pink shorts! - I have these and wore them all last summer.)

...a great summer look

East and breezy. I love the contradiction of a long, baggy shirt with short shorts! Throw on a chunky necklace and you're golden.

Just a simple little logo by Scout's Honor Co. that goes with my theme of traveling for the week. Check out their blog, I LOVE their work.

...packing for a European vacay

Stressed me out. To be honest. How sad is that? I thought about it for weeks before. I ended up bring leggings, jeans and jean shorts as my bottom options and a lot of striped tops and cozy, oversized shirts and sweaters as my top options. Chucks, Toms, and black patent Torys as my shoe options. I was excited to finally break out my wellies but its not going to rain. In London! (I shouldn't be sad but I am a little bit.) I was inspired by these two looksies.

...London! and Paris!

As a graduation present for my adorable little brother, my parents are taking us to London for a few days, the my brother and dad are escaping to Scotland to play a couple hundred rounds of golf while my mom and I go to Paris for about 36 hours. It's going to be a whirlwind but it's going to be AWESOME. I am pumped.

See you next week little babies!

May 19, 2012 grown up brother

Did you know I have the most awesome little brother in the world?


Well, let me tell you about how he is graduating from college this weekend. And how he has a job lined up in NYC this summer (thank goodness I have more excused to go there). And how he's this hilarious sarcastic boy. And how lucky I am he's my little brother. And how awesome it is that he's one of my best friends and I'm so happy for him and his awesome life and accomplishments.

That was sappy. I'm not sorry about it though.

...slowly learning news things

I'm slowly learning that I can't do it all. I really really wish I could. But keeping up with the blog, freelance, a full time job, running, and having a life outside of all this was wearing me down. That's why I've been a little distant lately my wonderful readers! But I'm taking a vacation next week (to London and Paris!! - I'm going to do a post on what I'm packing, I might have googled Paris and London fashion last week...) and hopefully that will help reset me. I'll have posts all week for you while I'm gone so enjoy!

...the fabulous Carol Lindsay

HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my favorite Momma! (obviously happy mother's day as well, but birthday trumps mother's day) It has been so wonderful to grow into a friendship with my mom as I get older and it is so cool that I can call her one of my best friends. (or besties as I like to say)

Love you!

...the weekend

I think I'm back my little kiddles...this weekend I am escaping to Baltimore and not bringing my computer, a weekend without work in a looong time!

Hopefully it restores me to full blogging capacity, I have some great things to share next week, including this girl's guide to Lilly Pulitzer for the spring/summer!

I have been slacking on the Life Changer's series and am looking for interested contributors! Please email me at if you're interested - I love finding out about new products and what makes peoples' lives better!

HAPPY WEEKEND - see you Sunday for a birthday/mother's day post for my favorite little mommy.

Guys. It is May. When did that happen. This week I failed at blogging and I am so sorry, and I most likely have to ask your forgiveness in advance because the next couple weeks don't seem to be slowing down. For now here's what I've been up to-seen through instagram's eyes:
