How amazing are these boat shoes! I love this look on girls and I think it is super sexy in the summer with the right look. Found these on Madwell... my new obsession. This site is amazing.

It's Overrated

Oui Paris!

How fabulous is this Paris print? It brings me back! I left exactly one year ago today and boarded a plane to the city of lights and my life has not been the same since! Photo courtesy of ffffound.

Fashion: Put It All On Me

Ok, so I am absolutely loving SJP in this bright yellow Valentino Couture. I love the silhouette and I think the color looks absolutely radiant on her! Perfect for summer. Here are some other bright yellow items that I am crushing on for this summer.

Michael Kors acrylic watch. This would look great by the pool or for everyday wear.
A Longchamp Le Pliage bag in citrine. For the record I have three, yes three of these Pliage bags because they are addicting! Luckily they are very chic and practical! Do I need four? For the citrine I would make an exception.
Paloma Sugar Stacks ring from Tiffany in yellow quartz.

Fashion: Put It All On Me

So I am really feeling the new clog trend. I love love love these asos clogs. They are perfect when you need to look tall and slim but can't get away with wearing a heel for fear of being too dressy or trying to hard. They bring me back to the days of my Steve Madden clogs that I was obsessed with in 4th grade. This time though, I would pair these with cuffed boyfriend jeans; Limited Too bell bottoms? Not so much!

Thanks Sophie for the awesome shout out! Check out her blog. The Littlest Things = SweetPea approved. Check her out and blog on!

Sunday Yumday

I encourage you all to try this amazingly delicious amazingly simple crostini recipe. They were a huge hit when I served them. It has goat cheese and ricotta and is all sorts of delicious. Perfect for memorial day. Enjoy!

I really think she is one of the smartest ladies out there...

Hello readers! I am so sorry for the long delay in posting. This is the first day since Monday that I have been able to even sit up and be at my computer. I got a nasty viral stomach flu that lasted the ENTIRE week and medicine would do absolutely nothing. Now that it's over I have some catching up to do! First I would like to share these amazing crayon rings. They bring me back to my childhood as I sort of remember having something similar in my craft box. However I distinctly remember them to be animal crayons, like a purple hippopotamus crayon but each animal stuck on the end of your finger like a finger puppet. And while we're on the subject, why are cartoon hippopotamus's always purple? Happy Weekend!

P.S. What would you draw with some crayon rings?

I have been lusting for an Hermes twilly scarf and even made it my personal mission to buy one before leaving Paris. I did make it to the Hermes store but alas they didn't have the particularly twilly I wanted. Today I came across this beautiful picture of Grace Kelly donning the legendary scarf. Love it.

Sunday Yumday

I hope everyone had a lovely weekend! The party was a huge, huge success. I cannot wait to post pictures. The party lasted in to wee hours of the morning so I had did not have the energy to cook something sinful this morning so a breakfast burrito from the cafe next door had to suffice. Since Sundays mean no diet and yumminess, these red velvet pancakes would have done the trick. Maybe next Sunday. Enjoy and have a relaxing day!

Oui Paris!

How neat are these French cahiers? They are blank inside perfect for a journal or sketchbook. I love the school cahier and the multiplication table is on the back of each one. Available at Cafe Americaine. P.S. They are Cheap! Only $3.95!


Getting ready for my party today! Eric and I successfully hung all of the carnival lights over the patio and I am so excited to see them lit! Pictures to follow soon! Happy Friday!

Fashion Friday

It's Friday so here is a recap of the latest news in fashion this week. Bon Weekend!

These are interesting.....

Can you imagine keeping 10 million dollars worth of clothes!?!?

Check out the red carpet in Cannes. P.S. The water there has actual glitter in it.

Bob Dylan's leather jacket for sale.

Claudia Schiffer's AMAZING baby bump on the cover of German Vogue.

A fashion disaster.. literally


I know these have made their rounds but I love them so much I can't help but post. They are porcelain take-out dishes. These would immediately transform a take-out meal, perfect if you have friends over and want to do take-out instead of cooking but still want to look chic.


This is probably one of the coolest things I have come across in awhile. This is a website that allows you to design your own pillows! they give you a template choice, all of which are super cool and modern and you pick the colors, design, etc. Perfect for that room or couch that you cannot seem to match. Enjoy! Check out my creations above!

The Demise of Greatness

Does anyone else miss Domino or Blueprint magazine? I seriously do. And is there anything out there comparable besides Elle Decor? If you know of any publications please share! I miss the awesome inspiration!


Don't you just love rainy days when you really have nothing pressing to attend to? I do! I am making the menu for my party if anyone knows any delicious and fun appetizer recipes please share! Oh and here is a lovely picture of a lovely rainy day like today. Photo courtesy of Flickr.

Fashion: Put It All On Me

I was on the hunt last weekend for chic shorts that weren't too short/casual. I came across these at the Limited of all places and I was in love! The pattern is super cute in person. I am thinking these will look great with a canary yellow top. If only it would get warm enough to wear them.

This delicious red velvet cake is from my photo essay of Route 66. If you are ever in Litchfield, Illinois be sure to stop by the Ariston. The most delicious desert South of I 88.

Fashion: Put It All On Me

Normally I am not in love with Express jewelry but I am dying over this ring. I love the colors and the gold. I don't wear many cocktail rings but this is very fun.


Check out these awesome looking flower pancakes over at Not Martha. Perfect for Mother's Day or any weekend since weekends mean pancakes :). Happy Weekend!

I am totally crushing on these striped Converse! They are super feminine and perfect for summer.


I am totally in love with this bag from J.Crew. Love the color and the nifty front pockets. Perfect size for my cameras.

In light of Cinqo De Mayo I created a Mexico wish-list! Now if only I was packing these items and going on a trip to mexico..... All items courtesy of Polyvore.

I love these bracelets I found on Etsy. They're half metal and half leather. The colors are subtle but fun. These would look great stacked or even one would be chic and elegant.


I am obsessed with the show Lost and I came across these posters yesterday by Mattson Creative. I love the simplicity and vintage style for such a modern show. Any Losties out there?
