Dear Europe

I can't wait to meet you. Still almost 9 months away but in my head, my bags are already packed. XOXO LJ


The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate. A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step. Do not worry about the future for it has not yet come. Live each day in the present and make it beautiful. Go confidently in the direction of your dreams.

Live the life you've imagined.The purpose of life, after all, is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experiences. Celebrate the happiness that friends are always giving, make every day a holiday and celebrate just living. We are cups, constantly and quietly being filled. The trick is, knowing how to tip ourselves over and let the beautiful stuff out.

BCBG Spring 2010 rtw.

Monday eye candy

All I want to do is paint everything white lately. The walls, the floors, the stairs, the railings...there is just something so clean and pure about all these looks. I cannot wait for the day I can paint my whole house white, and then paint a wall navy blue. Yes, the husband thinks I am certifiably insane.

Clearly I am a bit late

Apparently Lily Aldridge, my current girl obsession, walked in the VS Fashion Show back in November. How I missed this is completely beyond me but look at her! I have a serious girl crush!

Hey [Big] Spender

Two of my newest pairs of shoes. Did a little shopping on and let me tell you, these badboys are actually pretty decent for the $20 price tag. The first pair have a scary high heel- its gotta be about 5 1/2 inches, but they are actually comfortable. Second pair are a really cool grey/taupe color with about 4 inch heels. Loving my purchases!

Beer Me

This past weekend I headed up to Boston to hit the Beer Summit with some college friends. It was, to say the least, an interesting experience. Starting to drink at 11am was never a good idea, not in college, and definitely not when you are 28.

Part of the crew. I dont know why this photo is SO bright

Lovely ladies. Mariah, Jan, Kate, Jenn and myself
These two. Where to start. First, I cant even tell you where this photo was taken. I think we shocked every person that was outside the beer summit by being semi drunk after 30 minutes of being there. These two yelled at me for not blogging about them, for not posting about them, and then for taking too long to take this picture. I swear, you just cant win. So, here are Jan and Mariah. Two of the funnest and funniest people I know. They look a little shell shocked, but maybe that was just the smell from the port-a-potties around the corner! Happy girls?


Totally digging the Aje summer 2010 looks. Sort of makes me want to get tattoos all over my body. Sort of. That leather mini with pretty pink blazer is to.die.for. Fa' Empel is looking gorgeous as usual. Cant quite figure out what it is about her that I love so much, maybe the fact that she is completely f'ing unique looking and rocks these clothes!

Possibly the sexiest woman on the Earth- Amber Valletta

Dream trippin

The New Anthropologie catalog for spring is breathtaking. I want all of these outfits for Europe! And how gorg is the mode? Her hair is ridiculously cute.

The Saints Go Marching In...

Obsessed doesnt even come close to the amount of lust I have for these boots. I dont need them, but OMG do I want them. They are just so pretty to look at...all motorcycle and tassle and shiny leather and cool little strap under the perfect heighted heel. I swear I will eat Ramen Noodles and Pasta for the next two months just to save the money to buy these. The boots, and all other eye candy below, can be found Here. There stuff is so military yet girly. I am currently stalking the site to find out the exact location of the store in Berlin so I can visit it during our Europe trip mentioned here. I cant stop looking at those boots. Who ever said they dont believe in love at first site should probably skip on over to the website and take the plunge themselves.

J to the P

For months now my best friend Jenn has been saying things to me like "do a post about me" and "Im your best friend and I get no blog love". Well Jenny P, it looks like today is your lucky day. Not only did you start your new amazing job, but you are being featured on my lovely little blog. Finding photos that captured Jenn and all her energy was tough- maybe because I know her too well, or maybe because I was scared that no matter what I put on here, she would have something to say about. So, without further adieu, here is my ode to you fidget!

Hunters. Yea, maybe this makes no sense because I dont think she owns these, but they remind me of her because rain boots are for little kids, and I can totally picture jenn jumping into puddles all over the Bean.

This is the dog you will have one day. He is cute and looks skeptical.

If anyone can host a killer backyard BBQ, its Jenn. Perfect setting for some food, cocktails and friends to enjoy eachother.

Black and white all over. Reminds me of Jenns old bedroom in her crazy apartment in Cambridge. This photo reminds me of her and all the out of control nights we had while she lived there. They wont ever be forgotten.

Yes, okay I may be getting ahead of myself but this whimsical little dress is exactly what I picture Jenn in one day. Maybe I am way off, but it would be so cute!

I could've put some other pics up here, perhaps of friends laughing together, growing together and empty wine bottles...but I have all of those memories from the past 10 years in my head. Good luck at your new job, I know you will absolutely kill it, and keep giving them hell! XOXO
