Lauren Conrad has impeccable taste, as we all know, and she just shared her top ten
pumpkin decorating ideas and they. are. adorable. I love the flower one shown above and the
gilded ones are also incredible.
Have you listened to Taylor's new album yet? Thoughts?? I'm gonna pick it up today and
figure out all the codes and hyper-analyze every little lyric. (It's the only way)
I've been excited about this collarboation for quite some time! Gap Kids and Kate Spade/Jack Spade
have teamed up and the collection is available at Gap starting October 30th!!
It's only in stores for two weeks though so hurry! Check it out here!
Have you seen this yet? I can't wait till Into the Woods comes out! Fun fact: my sister and I
were in a kids version of the musical when we were both in elementary school! That's when I
decided the stage was definitely not for me. I'd rather appreciate it than be a part of it!!
Do you have anything you've been loving and I should be aware of??
I saw this cookbook on Anthropologie's website and immedietly wanted to create
a mood board around it. Lately I have been fascinated by stone and marble and how intricate
and beautiful they are. There is no definite pattern in marble and yet it always turns out
stunning. You can add some extra sparkle and glamor to an office space or your home
in general by adding some marble or stone touches. How beautiful would that stone paperweight
be in a bookshelf? If that cookbook was mine, I would place it somewhere the eye catches
so it's more of a statement piece. I think I'm going to have a house full of cookbooks
someday but never actually cook out of them, just stare at them! haha
One thing I would love for my 22nd birthday (I know, I know, it's only October and my birthday is in January! Blame the spending freeze!) is a classic and well-made tote bag. I thought
putting together a little collage would be a fun way to shop around and also
day dream about which one I want. ;) I love the Michael Kors totes because they come in
so many colors but the Gigi one is also great! And don't even get me started on that Bien tote!
I don't think it would be totally appropriate for grad school but I love it regardless.
Do you have a favorite place for tote bags?
I would love any and all suggestions!
I saw this on Michaela's blog this morning and really wanted to join along, so yes, there are
two posts today! Yay Friday!
Making: Lots of flashcards and edits to my grad school applications. I have two big tests next week and a paper due plus the apps so staying organized is key!
Drinking: Obscene amounts of coffee and English Breakfast tea. Helllooo caffeine!
Wanting: A new tote bag for school! I have a post coming up next week with some of my favorites. :) But for now, the spending freeze continues!
Eating: I'm eating way too much Mexican food lately. I go on these weird food obsession kicks every once in a while and right now it's Mexican food from my favorite place. I have to get all the good Mexican while I'm still in the southwest!
Smelling: My holiday candles. One is vanilla and the other is pine. I know Halloween hasn't even happened yet but they soothe me.
Wishing: I'm wishing for my tests to go well next week and also that I get my letters of recommendation packets put together by the end of next week!
Enjoying: I've been loving the cooler mornings and evenings here. It still gets into the high 80's in the afternoons but it doesn't matter when it at least cools down. I'm also just enjoying Tucson and my final months here.
Loving: I'm loving everything from Anthropologie right now. I also love the book, Calm My Anxious Heart. I don't think there could possibly be a better book for me haha!
Hoping: That the weather drops down into the 70's soon! I really want some cooler weather so I can start wearing sleeves and maybe a light jacket?
Needing: To get moving! I have to get my day going! (#procrastination)
Feeling: I am feeling very hopeful. I am content with my major, the grad schools I'm applying to, and I'm excited for the future!
Wearing: I'm currently wearing more professional clothes because I have some research testing to do this morning!
Bookmarking: I've been bookmarking all of the Christmas gift ideas I have for friends and family!!
Noticing: How much I miss Italy. I have a good friend (Hi, Valeria!!) who is in Orvieto right now and I am having some major envy! My sister is also going to be studying abroad in Italy next semester so I am bound to be jealous of the two of them for a while longer. Italy will always be a piece of home to me.
