Look for Less: Jimmy Choo for Hunter Rain Boots

I've blogged before about my love of these Jimmy Choo for Hunter boots..what I do not love, is the idea of spending 425.00 on rain boots..now, I'm not a practical person sometimes, but that is just a little intense..even for me

Well, ladies..enter project runway Christian Siriano's line for payless

These puppies are already on their way to my house, for 49.99..much better

This week has been brutal..a mid week migraine really put an unexpected curve in being able to get everything I needed accomplished..this weekend will be filled catching up, relaxing, and then enjoying a pizza party at my parents home this Sunday..they have a pizza oven in their backyard, and there are no words for how delightful it is!

What is on your agenda for this final August weekend?!

Glitter in the Air and other songs I am playing on repeat

Here are some songs that are currently being played on repeat in my Condo, much to my neighbors dismay..

For being such a badass, pink is hauntingly beautiful sometimes


such a sweet song

Football season is just around the corner, this song gets me in the mood

A Gatsy Inspired Wedding

By now, you probably have noticed I like to post about random people's weddings. Is that creepy? I hope not...

I am totally smitten by this Gatsby inspired wedding in Northern California.
The bride wore a custom gown inspired by Michelle Williams yellow Vera Wang Gown in a gorgeous shade of gray

See the rest of the pictures here

Back To School

Back to School was always my favorite time of year. The shopping, getting ready for classes, organizing. Every year at this time, I actively start researching MBA schools in anticipation I may actually go back one day...(which I would do, if I had the guts to retake my GMATs after getting killed once before)

August In the Bag: Starfish & Sundresses

I am so excited to have the fabulous Lindsey of Starfish and Sundresses over to play for this month's in the bag...seriously, this series is not helping my handbag obsession..at all!

Hi Sweet Nothings readers! Danielle was brave enough to ask me to share the contents of my purse with you all. Hope you don't mind the mess!
Lets start with the bag. I'm currently carrying a Foley+Corinna Mid City bag. I love all the zippered compartments, they're great for the little extras I always seem to be lugging around!
Clockwise from the left:
  • Kate Spade agenda--love the Bella Foster artwork this year!
  • Stray pair of vintage crystal clip on earrings-- a bargain $2 find
  • Car keys/house+office keys
  • Kate Spade card case-- a Christmas gift from my sister
  • Blackberry aka my lifeline ha!
  • Tomato red Kate Spade wallet--are you noticing a pattern here?
  • NARS blush/bronzer duo in Orgasm/Laguna
  • Stila lip glaze-- Love these! I ask for a set every Christmas
  • Hair tie
  • Essie nailpolish
  • Nook--birthday present from the fam and the newest edition to my bag

Hope you enjoyed a little peek into my life. Thanks so much to Danielle for inviting me to participate!

Eat, Pray,Love{My Way}

I read Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert a few years ago, and when life gets a little tough, I often just dream of getting up and going on a year journey of self discovery.

However, I would change up the locations a bit..

Here is where I would spend my time
EAT(and a little pray):ITALY
This part of the journey would stay the same. I would eat bowls of pasta. Learn to make my own wine. Visit the small Southern Italian town my family is from and learn every specialty I could

I don't talk too much about my faith here, but I am a practicing Catholic, and have been trying to get to the Holy Land for years and am really hoping to make it happen by 2012.

Because I feel with their sexy accents, the entire county is a bunch of this guy running around :)

Where would you ladies go if you could spend a year" finding yourself?"

The newest issue of Lonny is live, and though it is not my favorite, I instantly fell in love with these recovered book on Etsy

So chic, so affordable, so necessary to add to my library

Not Beyonce's Single Ladies

I think Sara Bareilles is one super talented lady..I also think Beyonce's Single Ladies is a great dance song...but I have to say, Sara's live version puts a whole new spin on this classic

For the Fellas

I was shopping for some work pants at the Gap this weekend, and wished I had a boy to buy this Hooded Cardigan for. It is so adorbs, perfect for fall, and reminds me of something I'd find in J.Crew.

Scoop it up for your hunnie bunnies ladies..
