Blogger Crush: Julia of Gal Meets Glam

I am completely smitten with the style of Julia from Gal meets Glam. This college senior at University of the Pacific is always perfectly put together and has completely gorgeous hair. When I was a college senior if I made it to class, I was either in half of my outfit from the night before or in some form of juicy sweatpants. And always hungover. I miss college.

Anyways, here are a few of her adorable outfits and check out her entire blog here

Obsessed with: Ann Taylor Lina Wedges


I am having a little shoppers regret not scooping up these Lina Wedges from Ann Taylor on Saturday at 40% off..I justified that I need to wait for the 238.00 electric blue calf hair wedges to be a little cheaper since a-I'll probably wear them only a few times, b-they would make me about 6'4 and c-I will probably break my ankle if I am even slightly tipsy in them

But boy are they STUNNING. Way to step up your game Ann!

The Best 4.00 You'll Ever Spend

I'm always impulse buying when I hit up Trader Joes, so this weekend I picked up a Cinnamon broome to place in my living room for some fresh smell. I want to go back and get one for every room! The smell just goes throughout the entire house and I can easily hide it in the corner

Holiday Dressing



I know I should be thinking about what I want to wear on Thanksgiving(but lets be serious..it will most likely be a baggy tunic sweater and leggings) but I am just smitten with this DVF Savannah dress for Christmas Eve. Perfect for Christmas Eve Mass and then dinner, I hope hope hope I will find it on sale in the next month!

November my Favorite Find: Natalie of Mint Love Social Club

Happy Friday loves! Our last guest feature for My Favorite Find is Natalie of Mint Love Social Club


Natalie and her fiance live in an amazing loft in downtown and throw dinner parties, post fabulous recipies, and have an adorable Boston Terrier! All photos in this post were taken by her as well. I just love her find and know you ladies will too!my



"Hi Sweet Nothing readers! I'm Natalie from Mint Love Social Club and I am really happy to share with you my November favorite find! I can't take full credit for this find as it was a gift from one of my girlfriends for my 26th birthday this year. My favorite find a an absolutely beautiful book by Fleur Wood, an Australian fashion designer, called "Food Fashion Friends." The book truly encompasses everything I love in life and every single page is filled with inspiring imagery that you can just get lost in.


Food Fashion Friends outlines the concept, styling, menu and execution behind a bunch of different parties the author posted over a year or so. I absolutely love to spend time getting lost on pinterest, pinning amazing pictures of over the top dinner parties and weddings, but many times you see these photos and you have to stare at them for a little bit until you figure out exactly how that party was executed. Which is why I immediately fell in love with this book, you see these gorgeous party images and then Fleur Wood outlines every last detail including a music playlist and the entire menu with recipes!


I felt like this would be the perfect favorite find to share with all of you since Christmas is fast approaching and I know that absolutely no one waits til the last minute to buy their gifts. Right? This book would be the perfect gift for a lot of people on your gift shopping list; your foodie friends, your fashionable friends, friends that love to entertain or even just your friends that love insanely gorgeous imagery.

Thanks Danielle for having me!

Healthier Choices

So I've put on a few pounds recently..I haven't been making the healthiest choices and in my horrible old work funk I was just totally unmotivated. I need some new recipes with healthier food options! I think I have just maxed out on lean cuisine options and turkey sandos.

So, what are your favorite go to recipes and low cal snacks? Any blogs, workouts, what you do to stay motivated. I need to get in front of this before it is New Years Day and I am crying because my sequins from the night before wouldn't fit...

Big News!


I am so excited to report that-as of signing my offer letter yesterday-I will be starting a new position at One King's Lane in their Los Angeles office in Beverly Hills! I am so thrilled to be joining an amazing company. It also means I will be eventually packing up the condo and moving to the westside at some point in early 2012. I feel like big things are finally coming my way and I can't wait to share the journey with all of you

Are You Ready for Some Football


I'm off to San Francisco today for quality girl time, lots of cocktails, and most importantly, watching Eli Manning and the rest of my NY Giants take on the 7-1(whaaatttttttttt) SF 49ers. Last time they two met, we won(and I was there as well!)

Heres to a fun weekend of tailgating, shopping, and hopefully no rain on gameday

Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?


I cannot wait to scoop up Mindy's book at some point this week. I think she is hilarious and some of my favorite episodes of the Office are the ones she has written. Has anyone picked it up yet?

I just LOVE the description:

Mindy Kaling has lived many lives: the obedient child of immigrant professionals, a timid chubster afraid of her own bike, a Ben Affleck–impersonating Off-Broadway performer and playwright, and, finally, a comedy writer and actress prone to starting fights with her friends and coworkers with the sentence “Can I just say one last thing about this, and then I swear I’ll shut up about it?”

Perhaps you want to know what Mindy thinks makes a great best friend (someone who will fill your prescription in the middle of the night), or what makes a great guy (one who is aware of all elderly people in any room at any time and acts accordingly), or what is the perfect amount of fame (so famous you can never get convicted of murder in a court of law), or how to maintain a trim figure (you will not find that information in these pages). If so, you’ve come to the right book, mostly!

In Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?, Mindy invites readers on a tour of her life and her unscientific observations on romance, friendship, and Hollywood, with several conveniently placed stopping points for you to run errands and make phone calls. Mindy Kaling really is just a Girl Next Door—not so much literally anywhere in the continental United States, but definitely if you live in India or Sri Lanka.

Ideas for the home from pinterest

So after much hesitation I joined Pinterest, mostly because Sara told me it wasn't blocked at work. I have become obsessed. I also need to start following more of the workouts I pin rather than the fatty desserts and cocktails.

Here are some great home inspiration things I have pinned to my boards:




Fun nail polish organization


removable wallpaper


a mini dressing nook


fabulous acrylic shelves


an amazing campaign DIY


gold urchins on dark walls


and some fabulous striped storage containers that would be perfect for Georgie's toys

A litle wisdom from Friday Night Lights


Every man at some point in his life is going to lose a battle. He is going to fight and he is going to lose. But what makes him a man is that in the midst of that battle he does not lose himself~ Coach Taylor
