Heat Chic

The Miami Heat are in the NBA Finals and hate as you might but I for one am excited! Incase you find yourself invited to watch the trifecta kick some booty here's some outfit inspiration. All items except for the t-shirt are from net-a-porter, t-shirt is from NBAstore. Please forgive me for not saving the original links. This is my first time doing this, I'm stillllll learning and working out kinks. 

Is anyone else rooting for the Heat or maybe the Mavs? Nothing like a little friendly competition! Or maybe you've created outfits for sporting events in the past, do share, i'd love to hear all about it!

Memories for Memorial Day

     Besides officially being able to wear white, we have so much to be thankful for this wonderful weekend. Thank your red white and blue stars that we live where we live! May this weekend bring you all rest and relaxation.  I plan on taking a trip to a local state garden with the pup for some fresh air and a leisurely stroll. What are you all planning and preparing for? Here's hoping for great weather and even greater memories with those we love!

...and now for your viewing pleasure an artfully curated collection of red, white, and blue.

Burn, Baby, Burn

I've contemplated at great length whether I agree or disagree with this sentiment, 

     Today the verdicts in and I've decided to whole heartedly embrace it. May the bridges I burn light the way. And, so it goes. May I continually keep my little feet moving towards happiness. It's not ignoring the past but acknowledging that it did not work. There's a lesson to be learned here I just haven't fully wrapped my head around it yet. Other than to say the past is the past and with any luck it'll help deliver you to your future. 

     On a lighter note, here's another image I've had saved for a while. I had head lice as a child and after sitting through hours upon hours of searching for lice I vowed to never brush my hair again. Of course this hasn't exactly worked out, but,  it is a rare occasion that I pick up a hair brush. For years my mom referred to it as the dumpster diver look, a la Mary Kate and Ashley with their huuuuge bags, 2 sizes to large clothes, and, well, messy hair. 
I happen to like it, it makes life easier. So there mom, take that!

Pretty Pencils

     Alright ladies and gentlemen time to get rid of all those unsightly plastic (read, not earth friendly) mechanical pencils. Today I found an answer to all our written word needs. Drum roll pleaseeeee, welcome the wonderful company that is Paper Pastries. They have a fabulous etsy shop, where I ordered my babies from and an even more fabulous  blog featuring a larger selection of all their products. So what am I eagerly awaiting to show up in my mailbox you ask? These babies,
      How ridiculously fun are these pencils?! Maybe it's the geek in me but I really am super excited about these.  I've got one more semester left at school and I plan to use them ALOT! Here are a few other fun options. Planning ahead for Valentines Day 2012? Got a friend that's a pro in the kitchen? These will be just what you've been looking for. 
Did anyone out there already know about this super fun/creative company? Hope I'm not the last to find out! P.S looks like recently their kitchen themed pencil set has been featured in House Beautiful and a few other large scale magazines. How exciting for them! Are there more small businesses out there like this I'm missing out on? Please share.
