Weekend Merriment


I'm ending a busy week on a little bit of a slower note and looking forward to a relaxing weekend. These are a few things I saw around the web/a book I just started as part of my 101 in 1001 days, that I thought I'd share. Happy Friday - enjoy your weekend!

1. This is sad but also incredibly beautiful. 

2. A real life Central Perk from Friends just opened in NYC this week.

3. Just started reading this book and loving it.

4. I'm on Bloglovin' now so follow along!

5. I would love to see this exhibit.

6.  This lip dub was pretty epic.

7. A cool dotting technique for makeup highlighting.

8. How cute are my birthday studs?

9. Snapchat's Fashion Week feature. 

10. A guide to Champagne flutes.

I love Braids

I have always loved braiding my hair, but I was never able to grow it past my shoulders and have it looking good. So I've settled for shorter hair and smaller braids, but how fun are these braids from Fall 2014 Fashion Week (spring 2015)? It's making me a little envious!

Getting in Shape...



I'll be the first one to admit that I'm the worst exerciser. Since I've never had to worry about my weight or being on a diet, working out wasn't the need-to-do priority in my life. Though I know how important exercise is to my health and I want to stay fit (and a little more muscle definition would be nice too).

And even though I walk almost everywhere, I know that's not enough! I'm not really a gym person and can't seem to find an exercise routine that works for me. I think I've finally come to the conclusion that I either need to take a Zumba class twice a week or play a game of Tennis. I love the idea of being active in a game or activity then sitting home and doing planks, yoga or sit ups.

That being said, I'm challenging myself to one month of Blogilates. I hope this will get me out of my forever workout funk and help me keep a consistent schedule to stay healthy.

Start: Wednesday September 17
End: Friday October 17

Do you have trouble working out? If so, what are your secrets?! I'd love to know!

Fall Fill Up That Cart



The transition from summer into fall is definitely my favorite time of the year. I love when the air is cool and not humid. So I'm hoping that this New England fall call last a little long this time, I am so not ready to be driving in the snow! Btw - how cute is this whole outfit, I could seriously add it all to my cart and buy it right now! #notevenkidding 

But I already have #5 - the Stylemint sweater in the green and it's become my every day go-to. It goes from day to night seamlessly, is super soft (hello cashmere) and is currently on sale. 

That Jo Malone body scrub smells delicious in the shower and on my skin afterwards. I have use quite a few samples and really need to get it, but I'm struggling with the price tag. But it would be worth it? Help!
