A Love for Color

J Crew’s 2011 Spring Collection is right on par with the color trends for 2011.  The mix of tomato red and blush may be my favorite combination. I am also so ecstatic that sequins are still in for Spring.. that green sequin skirt may be the next addition to my closet.

Football Mania

  

I have to admit I am sort of an appetizer junkie.  With Super Bowl Sunday coming up, I figured it would be a great way to make my boyfriend happy and enjoy some great finger foods! Maybe even make some football themed cupcakes :)   Pictures of the party to come…

Books, Books, and More

   

 

How great are these bookshelf and coffee table books from Domino Magazine.  Such great inspiration for my apartment! I am loving the peach, coral and pink hues in these rooms.  So chic!

Wake Up And Smell the Daisies

   

 

Happy Day back to work! I am just in love with my new Marc Jacobs Daisy perfume I got for Christmas.  Maybe because of how cute the bottle is or the sweet smell.  Either way I want to collect all four! Possible Valentine’s Day idea anyone??

Best Dressed

These four movie stars always look so chic but at last years Golden Globes they won the award for Best Dressed in my book. I cannot wait for the red carpet tonight. Awards season is one of my favorite times of the year!

Illustrator Extraordinaire

 

 

 

 

Jenny Bowers, Illustrator Extraordinaire! I love her use of bright colors that allow her illustrations to just pop off the page. And especially the elegant and girly subject matter. She is the one behind the new Kate Spade stationary and 2011 planner.  These illustrations would look great in my new office!

I am definitely in a Party Arty State of Mind.  The Nelson-Atkins Museum, Young Friends of Art is hosting the 3rd annual Party Arty.  This is my first year as an ambassador and I am just so ecstatic! It is going to be the event of the year with live music, catering from Kansas City area restaurants and dancing all night!
