crying playlist

On one of my last nights in DC the other week, all of us girls in journalism crowded in a hotel room, got in bed and listened to my friend's infamous "Crying Playlist." I added some of my own songs that I love as well... Trust me, this shit will make you cry (pardon my french!)

santa's laundry day

My mom gets the Garnet Hill catalogue in the mail every once in a while. I was flipping through it the other day and fell in love with this bedding set!

If I was Mrs. Claus, I'd have fun doing the laundry for Santa! I get a kick out of his long underwear!

loving lulu's

I found out about the sweetest online boutique the other day! Lulu's began as a mother-daughter project in 1996, and has continued to grow by offering fun, fashionable pieces for affordable prices. They add stock every week, and sell everything from prom dresses to lace up loafers to quirky clutches. Their dress selection impresses me, for they offer absolutely lovely pieces, most which are under $60! Take a look at some of my favorites:

I'm obsessed with the sleeves and scoop neck - definitely an "It" Girl dress!
Dear Diary Dress, $37

Have you ever bought off of Lulu's?

iphone discoveries

Upon the arrival of my beautiful new 13 inch Macbook Pro, I plugged in my iphone to update it and such, and iphoto popped up, asking if I'd like to download all my phone photos onto my computer. I had fun looking back on them and remembering the past year or so and all the little things I did or saw that I forgot about until now. Here's a peek at some of my favorite shots with my handy cellular device!
