a rare moment.

March 31st, 2011 — 7:04pm

february seems like a distant memory yet the memories are so vividly clear as it happened yesterday.  i usually don’t post personal events in my life; however, it was a very special month as my dear friend eileen got hitched to the love of her life and i celebrated my 32nd birthday.  as you know, my life never has a dull moment.  i spent two nights in the er with pneumonia before the wedding (i’m finally recovered and thank you to everyone for the well wishes).  but on february 26, we anxiously made our way to the church.  our stomachs were fluttering with butterflies and needless to say, we were all in tears as we saw cris and eileen begin their life as one.  i’ve never seen two more in love as they are.  it was a night filled with tears, laughs, and a life time of memories as we danced the night away…

{congratulations.}

in more ways than one.

don’t you just love it when you can wear your sweater in a thousand different ways?  okay, maybe not a thousand but you get the picture.  goddis recently launched their spring wrapable knitwear that will make your heart flutter with their flirty and feminine silhouettes.  gorgeous.  my heart skips a beat knowing that these will look fabulous with my old pair or jeans or with my maxi dresses.  the jena is my favorite piece from the collection as you can see why….

brite orange.

March 29th, 2011 — 10:47am

i decided to venture out of the usual black and red nail lacquer in preparation for spring.  a bit daring for myself because i’ve never been a fan of the color orange.  i splurged on some new deborah lippmann spring hues over the weekend and was captivated by “it’s delovely.”  it’s shocking and a tint of fluorescent but it goes oh so well with my new no-name ex-boyfriend tee…

i’m like a bird.

some of you noticed the feather strands in my hair.  i was feeling adventurous and decided to put them in a couple of weeks ago.  it’s definitely not something i would normally do, but i thought it would be fun to put some non-permanent color in my dark locks while keeping my hair healthy.  the feathers are made from elegant rooster plumes and dyed in a myriad of colors.  lucky for me, they don’t need much maintenance as i can wash, curl or flat iron them.

square one.

March 28th, 2011 — 2:10am

my sister and i started our day at square one to feed our insatiable appetite.  this quaint little restaurant will make you feel like you’re about to eat your mom’s home cooked meal.  even though i didn’t eat their famous brioche french toast, our brunch was nothing less than perfection.  my favorite was the salmon benedict served with wilted frisee on a shredded potato pancake with hollandaise….spectacular!  the potato pancake did it for me…the crunchiness and texture were a perfect combination.  so the next time you decide to cook salmon benedict, here’s rule of thumb:  skip the muffin and use shredded potatoes.

mixing colors

March 26th, 2011 — 10:51am

if you didn’t already know, jewelry can make or break your look.  finding the right jewelry can be overwhelming but just keep in mind that it’s all about personal style and what you feel most comfortable wearing.  my personal fave are the goddess bracelets by dogeared….i can’t get enough of them!  they can be your main attraction or you can use them as fillers.  i’m so in love with the new colors that have arrived….

there’s something about showing of the slightly bare shoulders that can make a girl feel sexy and feminine….
