Well guess what? We are back at it and off again. This time we are jetting off to Kansas City for the Plaza Art Fair Weekend.  It is my favorite event in Kansas City and I knew I would not miss it this year just because I moved away.  For many of you who have never been to Kansas City or even the midwest, the Art Fair is the best weekend of the year! Not only are there 15 blocks full of local and national artists booths, but some of the best food and drinks you will ever have. Lets talk about a highlight from last year, a free Chocolate Bag from McCormick and Schmicks, thanks to a little sweet talk with one of my girlfriends. This is the first time I am headed back to Kansas City after the big move and I could not be more excited to see all my girlies. I am sure there is going to be too much fun (nah… there is no such thing as too much fun) to be had. 

The weather is supposed to be absolutely beautiful for the weekend, so I am going to enjoy wearing a few of my new fall favorites. Since we will be out and about all day/night- I am going to bring my new leather jacket and these heels to dress up my daytime look.  I decided to stick with neutrals when I made my packing list because really you can never go wrong with some good black and white.  Oh, and I am sure I will be doing lots of shopping, since I have been on a freeze for the last 2 months.

What a weekend! I feel like I can finally take a deep breath and head into the possibly crazy work week with a clear head. I did everything and more of what I had planned for the weekend (minus, really cleaning the house). A couple girlfriends and I stopped by the Prairie Village Art Fair and had a few spiked fresh lemonades, crepes, and of course I found an amazing artist that I loved but naturally was way out of my price range. So I moved back slowly and parted ways with her beautiful paintings.

Lately, I have been living in my new Sam Edelman sandals. You can tell they are already slightly worn in and I have had them for less than a month..oops! Even Miss Molly loves them as much as I do (please disregard how shaggy she is, she gets her summer cut tomorrow morning).

One of my favorite things about the warmer weather is my craving for fresh fruit, I have been munching on blueberries and raspberries non- stop.

What may have been the best part of my weekend was the purchase of my new Clarisonic Mia 2. I have been doing so much research and I finally pulled the trigger on this beloved beauty product. It is still on the charger, but tomorrow morning will be my first time to try it out. I will be sure to report back! But in the meantime, if any of you have any advice, I would love to hear. I bought a new bottle of Purity face cleanser too, I seriously have a love for all Philosophy products (and it could have something to do with the label design).

The Fairest of them All


My favorite weekend of the year is finally here.  If you were wondering what it was… it’s the Plaza Art Fair this weekend in Kansas City.  There will be 240 artists from all over the US showing their work this in my neck of the woods.  I am not gonna lie, it is not all about the art this weekend, about 30 restaurants from the Plaza will have pop up tents with awesome food and drinks and 3 stages with live music each night.  Let’s just say it is the best weekend of the year and to make it better, the weather is going to be amazing. I am on the hunt for a large scale painting for my dining room, so wish me luck!
