how is January already over? huh. anyway, happy Wishlist Wednesday!

1. If you haven't listened to Tegan and Sara's new album Heartthrob, do it now. It's fantastic.
2. I'm loving this lightweight infinity scarf from J.Crew. Bonus points for being OKC colors. Thunder up!
3. It's a mimosa-scented diptyque candle, so.. yeah, I want it.
4. So, now that I'm back from Paris I'm obsessed and want to buy Paris things. But really, this illustration from The Paris Print Shop is so darling.
5. These XOXO stickies are perfect for writing a quick love note for your sweetie pie (yuck).

here it is. my Paris recap. Seriously one of the greatest experiences of my life thus far. I'm so thankful to be able to travel to amazing locations as a part of my job, and I loved every minute of this trip.

I could go on for hours about the architecture, the food, the art, the language, etc, etc, but I won't, because that would be boring. Again, I'm so grateful to have gotten to see any of these beautiful things, and I can't wait to go back.


wishlist wednesday | january 23

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

Happy Wednesday! I'm back from Paris which was a-mah-zing, and I will have a recap up ASAP, but for now I have a wishlist on this lovely Wednesday.

1. Deborah Lippmann has created a line of nail polish inspired by one of my favorite shows, GIRLS, and I couldn't be more obsessed. There's a different color for each character, and I'm loving all of them.
2. This brand new Peter Pan merino striped sweater from J.Crew is at the top of my spring arrival favorites list.
3. I've been looking for a pair of foo dogs to put on my bookcase, and I'm loving these two emerald guys.
4. Elizabeth Mayville has so many great prints, but I especially like this pretty yellow braid print.
5. The bright ball trim on this lovely aqua floral pillow is such a fun, quirky accent - perfect for brightening up a chair or sofa.


travel essentials

Friday, January 11, 2013

Since I'll be enjoying a couple of 10-hour flights in the next week, I thought I would share a few of my travel essentials. When I'm traveling, I, and I'm sure many of you do to, have a specific group of things that I need for a long flight or 3-hour layover. I think the most important thing when traveling is to only carry the essentials, and to carry them in an organized way. Also, by essentials I obviously mean passport, money, and every fashion magazine that is at the newsstand.

1 / 2
so.... I'm going to Paris for work in a few days... it's whatever. JK I CAN'T WAIT. I will be attending the Maison et Objet tradeshow in Paris next week and I could not be more excited. Not only is this my first trip to Europe, but this is my first international trip ever. I'll be there for 6 days, and I can't wait to share photos and stories when I get back. I'll be back here tomorrow with a few of my travel essentials and then I'll be out on Monday!


wishlist wednesday | january 9

Wednesday, January 9, 2013

happy wednesday! here's my first wishlist of the year!

1. I could not be more excited for this new Kate Spade book, Things We Love, to make its way onto my coffee table.
2. Sarah Tolzmann of Note to Self has finally opened a society6 print shop, and it's just as lovely as you would expect it to be. This "Chicago is always a good idea" print is number one on my list.
3. I'm obsessing over the lines of this dylan bench from CB2.
4. What's better than a cozy plaid button up in the middle of winter? One that's lined with polka dots, that's what.
5. These Rifle Paper Co. Global Greeting Note Cards are just the perfect way to catch up on your correspondence.


liberal arts

Sunday, January 6, 2013


This weekend I rented a new(ish) independent film on iTunes called Liberal Arts, and it's definitely one of my new favorites. It was written, directed, and starred in by Josh Radnor (Ted from How I Met Your Mother) about a 30-something who goes back to his alma mater and meets a current student that he builds a relationship with. It's adorable, insightful, so sweet, and so fun to watch. I highly recommend checking it out asap. Watch the trailer below and rent on iTunes here.
