Geek Chic

     Oh, how I love Madewell.  Their 2011 Spring Lookbook is fabulous.  I love the “Geek Chic” look especially mixed with the nautical stripes.  That horizontal striped tank and that chambray shirt… yes please!

A Cup of Jo



The Roasterie is a local Kansas City cafe in Brookside with specialty flavors to fill the needs of any coffee lover.  They are passionate about giving back to the community and delivering the best coffee to its customers.  My favorite is the Air-Roasted Kansas City blend. Try it sometime!

Soup That Will Warm Your Heart





Since it is snowing outside, soup is the perfect comfort food to warm you from the inside out.  Martha Stewart has a whole list of winter soup recipies that are to die for.  Possibly tomato soup and grilled cheese for dinner?

Snow Day



 After trying to clear the snow off of my car in about 3 inches, I decided it is time to invest in some rain boots.  These Hunter Wellies are as chic as they come and with all of the color choices it is hard to go wrong!

Feeling Dizzy


I love this chevron pattern and especially Rubie Green.  Her fabrics are so dainty yet sophisticated. The chevron pattern gives such a modern touch to my traditional style. A possible option for accent pillows on our new white couch or maybe an upholstered bench in the entry way.

Goodmorning and Happy Friday! After staying up late painting our cute new apartment, I am in dire need of a cup of jo! The only problem is my darling monogram mug is all packed up and ready to move. Just keep reminding myself that it is Friday!  

Also, don’t these muffins look to die for? Treat day next Friday possibly?

A Pop of Color




So, since the holidays are over I am in need of a change from my festive Essie Lollipop nailpolish. I must have been dreaming of summer when looking at these colors. But at least they would brighten up my day, right?

Closet Envy



 I have been having issues trying to figure out how to organize all of my clothes, shoes and accessories in my new closet. I was soo spoiled in my last place with a walk- in. I am so envious of these beautiful closets, oh how I love organization…

dreaming of a new kitchen



All I can think about today is moving into my new condo on Saturday, so naturally I have been consumed by looking at kitchenware.  These measuring cups are about as cute as they come, especially next to this coffee table book, Food Fashion and Friends by Fleur Wood.  Too cute!
