The Monday Rundown

Jennifer Fisher Double Skull Cuff: I’m not usually into the whole skull thing but I really, really love this rose gold bracelet.

NYX Cosmetics The Curve: It’s really just so smart.  I hate putting on liquid eyeliner and the “grip zone” on this liner provides just the right hold to make it super easy to apply.

Grilled corn summer salad: I had corn on the cobb yesterday for the first time this summer this summer…which is shocking considering that it’s one of my most favorite foods ever.  This summer salad is perfect in every way.

Anthropologie Chained Vase: I love this Anthro vase but I mean, come on, $200? I don’t think so.  This is a fairly easy DIY project that I will be doing in the upcoming weeks.



The Monday Rundown: Beginning of Summer Edition


Summer is finally here!  For me, summer often brings a new sense of self and I get really, really inspired to do all the things that I’ve been putting off for months (e.g. those pesky new years resolutions, etc.).  This week I’ll be obsessing about the above:

AE Relaxed Boyfit Denim Shortie: I’m so not a shorts girl so this is kind of major for me.  Even though my legs are pretty toned, they’re on the thicker side (thank you dance) and I’ve always been super self-conscious about wearing shorts and, up until recently, even wearing shorter dresses.  I like these, in particular, because even though “boyfriend jeans” usually look atrocious on me, when it comes to shorts, the boy cut makes sense.  They hang lower on the hips and don’t ride up in the thigh area, which is usually all too familiar for me (though I still recommend going one size up).

Anthropologie Vertices Drink Dispenser: There’s something so spa-like about drinking your water from a fancy glass dispenser.  I’ll be cutting up fresh cucumber and soaking them in this container for an extra fancy bonus.

AVEDA Nourish-Mint Smoothing Lip Color: I love, lovvvve this gorgeous red lip color.  I saw it on a friend a few weeks ago and honestly, it’s a show-stopper.

Truffle Kale Macaroni and Cheese: The food genius, otherwise known as Felicia Sullivan, re-created this recipe on her blog and I nearly died.  This recipe combines three of my favorite things: kale, truffle (anything) and macaroni and cheese.  Now if only I could cook…

The Monday Rundown

BCBG Generation Asymmetrical Shoulder Pleat Dress: I’ve been looking a fun birthday dress and came across this super cute leopard version.  I’m excited to wear it while celebrating my 29th!

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil: My friend Andrea let me borrow one of hers awhile back and I was really impressed with how long it lasted, especially given the fact that most eyeliner runs down my face five minutes afer application most of the time.  This eye pencil also has three fun, new colors- Demolition, Perversion (my new fave!) and Woodstock, all of which are fabulous.

Anthropologie Brassica Butter Dish: I have absolutely no use for a butter dish.  However, I LOVE this.  I would probably fill it with jewelry and leave it in my bedroom somewhere.  That is all.

Blackberry Frozen Yogurt recipe: Ok, so it’s not quite summer, yet, but I came across this super simple recipe to make blackberry frozen yogurt and had to do it.  Yum.
