Merry Christmas.

Merry Christmas, dolls! I hope ya'll are having a fab day with your loved ones.

Here are some links to make you smile...

Christmas photos from all over the world.

Adorable letters to Santa.

Mariah's "All I Want For Christmas" is the most played Christmas song. Not surprising, considering I played this at least fifty times in the month of December...

These would be perfect NYE shoes, no?

Sh!t Girls Say.

Ugh, everything about this is true. Haha, "loves it!"

Stacked Bracelets.

I'm all about the layered jewelry these days.

More is more!

Winged Eyeliner.

My goal this winter is to master this look.

Bling, Bling.

Hot pink ruby with 18k gold - stunning.

This is just to die, huh?

I am really feeling these simple rings from Catbird.
They're so delicate and pretty and also come in letters.

Sometimes you just need a little sparkle in your life.

Mexico Recap.

I just got back from a week in Cancun and boy, it was gorgeous.

Sunshine for days and days.

Enjoying pool side margaritas.
And men in Speedos, apparently.

The pools were spectacular.

I was all smiles.

Enjoying the sunset.

Ocean view from the hotel room.

The water was crystal clear.

Enjoying another sunset.

Andrew wading in the ocean.

We went caving, rafting, and zip lining.

We took a boat out on the ocean and went snorkeling.

The most insane club I have ever been to; Coco Bongo.
I highly recommend you check this place out if you visit Cancun.

The moon light was so bright each night.

Back to reality maƱana!


I was a bad girl on vacation.
The shopping proved to be too tempting.

I'm Back!

Well, hot damn it's been awhile! It's been a million years (give or take) since I've posted and it's about time I start again.

A lot of things have come and gone since I've posted including moving into my fab new place, my birthday and Halloween. In fact, I've been living (kinda-sorta) sans internet since I've moved in, with the exception of Andrew's wireless card that he uses for work. We are, in fact, going to set up internet but this internet break has actually been kind of nice.

I'll be back soon with more updates, but until I do...

Kimmie K getting a divorce after 72 whole days. Here's one journalists thoughts. I couldn't agree more! PS: Do they return the gifts?...

I'll be going on a vaca soon and cannot wait to experience THIS!

My apartment is about 99% decorated but I have a few blank walls that need a little attention. Perhaps some visually interesting art for cheap?

The breakup notifier. This is just harsh, man.

Layered Bracelets.

I really love the layered bracelet look that's going on right
now. I'm a 'more is more' kind of girl, so this suits me well.
A nice link bracelet is always in style too.

Simple and chic bracelets by Marc Jacobs.
What color do you like best? I can't decide!

Home Decor Lusting.

Currently lusting over this painting that I found at a random antique
store. Fingers crossed it's still there when I go back for it on Saturday.

I have been searching high and low for a cute bar tray. My plan
is to not fill it with candles, but shiny, beautiful bar-ware for
cocktails. This clear tray from CB2 is simple and chic.

I'm currently obsessed with Ikat dyed pillows. All of them. Yep.

Oh, West Elm mirrored side table... I love you.
Why must West Elm be so expensive?

So, as you see this has been my life now. I am moving in just
over a week and couldn't be more busy - and excited!

Decorating Madness.

I am moving into a beautiful condo in a little over a month
and I've got decorating on my mind. I purchased this
couch today at Macy's after weeks of intense couch shopping
both online and in person. It's got that sleek, modern vibe that I dig.

Bedspread a la Target.

Luckily for me, I have quite a few pieces of furniture that will be
coming with me, such as a set of two Pier 1 Imports lamps.

Ikea chair that is coming with me.

I am so intro the retro vibe of 'sheep skin' rugs.

I just picked up this Ikea Tobias chair from Craigslist for
less than half the price. It will be my new desk chair.

Other things I have been eying... CB2 nesting tables,
bar tray, and fun vibrant prints.

Run the World.

Check out this blogger's reaction to Beyonce's "Run the World" song and video. I love Beyonce just as much as the next pop lover, but this is pretty interesting. Thoughts?

The Voice.

Is anybody else watching The Voice? Um, I was so not into it and then watched one episode and now I am sucked in. My favorite is Dia Frampton. Her voice is so outrageously unique. And how amazing is her Kanye West cover? Ugh, I love her.

PS: You can watch live version here. YouTube stinks sometimes, ya know?

PPS: How obvious is it that the judges just hate, hate, hate Christina?! Awk-ward.

Mama's Woes.

I am by no means a mother but this blog post (which I found through
Cup of Jo) made me, quite literally, laugh out loud. Moms really deserve
an award or something. Check it out here for a good laugh.

The Muppets.

After seeing Jason Segel's hilarious puppet antics in Forgetting Sarah Marshall I knew it was not the last time we'd see his puppetry. I cannot wait to see this new Muppets movie, particularly because Jason Segel is a part of the project. That and I am totally obsessed with Miss Piggy. She is really working that Chanel suit jacket.

Man Down.

Have you seen Rihanna's new video for "Man Down?" I love it. Some people are raising eyebrows over this video and calling it overly violent. Call me crazy, but the video is about shooting a man. And yes, there is a man shot in the video. If you watch the video in its entirety you will see the video is about rape and frankly, I'm glad somebody is talking about it.

"Rape is, unfortunately, happening all over the world and in our own homes and we continue to cover it up and pretend it doesn't happen," Rihanna said.

It's very Bob Marley "I Shot the Sheriff" esque. I hope Rihanna continues making music from her Caribbean roots and speaking up about important topics. I'm diggin' it.

Weekend Wrap Up.

I spent my long weekend in Ocean City, Maryland.
I was lucky enough to stay right on the beach.

We drank white wine spritzers and beer on the balcony.

We soaked up the sun at every given moment.

And we certainly did not count calories (eek)
while at Bayside Skillet and elsewhere.

Pork Chops with Pineapple Salsa.

As mentioned, I've been cooking a lot recently. I made a bangin' dish the other day that's perfect for the summer time; pork chops with pineapple salsa. The inspiration for this recipe is from Weight Watchers.

1. One can of diced pineapple
2. Half a red onion, diced
3. One jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped
4. One lime
5. Cilantro
6. Salt, pepper, allspice, red pepper
7. Pork chops

Combine the pineapple, red onion, jalapeno pepper, cilantro, lime juice, lime zest, salt, pepper, allspice and red pepper together for the salsa. The longer you let the flavors meld the more vibrant the flavors will be.

Use the pineapple juice from the can of pineapple to marinate the pork chops. Salt, pepper and season your pork chops to your liking and grill. Serve with pineapple salsa and rice for a colorful and extremely delicious dinner. You could easily use chicken instead of pork chops, if necessary. I also used some pineapple juice and cilantro in the rice also for a little somethin' somethin'.

Gold Cup.

Andrew and I went to Gold Cup this
year. We, naturally, rocked hats.

The bigger the hat the better!

Dinner Time.

In an effort to eat healthier, I have been cooking more and eating out less. I made this (if I don't say so myself) de-lish dinner tonight (and the other night too, eep!) and I wanted to share the recipe.

It's originally a Weight Watchers recipe so I can't take credit for it, but I did alter it quite a bit. I'm not really a 'follow the recipe' kind of girl, but here's an outline:


1. Veggies; such as red bell peppers, onions, shredded cabbage, mushrooms (whatever you like and have on hand)
2. Garlic (fresh or ground garlic)
3. Ginger (again, fresh or ground ginger)
4. Fresh basil
5. Coconut milk (light coconut milk, if you can find it)
6. Thai curry paste, red
7. Soy sauce
8. Chicken breasts

To start, saute the chicken with garlic and ginger. While that is cooking, mix half a can of coconut milk with a tablespoon of red curry paste and a tablespoon of soy sauce. Add more or less curry paste depending on how spicy you like your food. When the chicken is nearly done, add the veggies to the saute pan with the chicken. Add the fresh basil towards the end. Pour the coconut milk mixture over the chicken and veggies and let simmer for about ten minutes. Serve with rice, cous cous or whatever you fancy.

De-lish and extremely simple!

Online shopping at midnight got me again! Check
out my new shoes! I cannot say enough good things the
brand; Sofft Shoes. They're like walking on pillows, people!

Next splurge? Ca-ute.
I have a problem, I know...

Cheesin' in my new specs. Ya like?

Sunday, March 20, 2011


I don't know about you but my vacations are sacred to me. I really value my personal time away from work and like to make the most of it.

I was fortunate enough to travel to the Dominican Republic recently (on my company's dime, none the less) and it only wet my appetite for another trip!

It's been a few years since I've been to Europe so I think that might be the next destination.

Where are you dying to travel to?

Oh La La.

I've got new jewelry from a far away land! It reminds me of the
House of Harlow jewelry collection, which is full of geometric shapes.

This gift comes at a great time because I have really been on a jewelry
kick recently. I have been eying the vintage collection pieces from Erstwhile
Jewelry Co
. Their collection is so ornate and beautiful. And I am still completely
obsessed with this ring. It just might be my next big purchase...

Birthday Boy.

Happy Birthday, Andrew!

Let the birthday dancing begin!

Is This Your Jam?

I don't mean to be a major B but is Kim Kardashian's new song not one of the worst things you have ever heard? Look, I (not so) secretly love the Kardashian Klan (you see how I did that? Clan/Klan. I crack myself up!) but wow, this song is really bad.

Kim has always said Jennifer Lopez was her idol. Sounds like she is trying to follow in J Lo's footsteps with a clothing line, perfume, and now a song. What is next?

There are a lot of bad pop songs that I think are catchy and fun, but this is not one of them.

Even Paris Hilton's song was better. Check Kim's song out here.

What'd ya think? Are you going to jam out to this song on the way to work? Don't lie!
