there’s something about spring that makes me want to clock out early, hit up a patio and enjoy some sips and snacks in the sunshine. (which reminds me, i need to stock that bar cart…) here are some sips i’m definitely craving this season…
how gorgeous are these cocktails via there comes a yes? i want to try them all (responsibly and slowly, of course)…
this st. germain margarita recipe via freutcake looks absolutely amazing!
this mango jalapeño margarita via how sweet eats is calling my name.
this blood orange sorbet gin float via cupcakes and cutlery looks incredible.
this lillet rose spring cocktail recipe via martha stewart only takes about ten minutes to make!
what’s your favorite spring cocktail?
this sounds so silly, but i’ve always taken pride in my print handwriting. my cursive… now that’s another story. i’ve always wanted to learn a little more about calligraphy and decided that this will be the year i attempt it! i mean, how can you not be inspired by these gorgeous letters?
are you interested in calligraphy? would you ever take a class?
now that spring is officially here, i’m shedding those warm bulky layers and switching out my winter products for lightweight, brighter colors and shimmers. here’s a bit of what i’m wishlisting this season…

maybe it’s just me entering spring cleaning mode (or it’s just the return of mad men), but i’ve been seriously itching to finally stock our bar cart! here’s a bit of what i have in mind…
shop the items:

pierremont place two-piece bar set, kate spade
the drunken botanist, anthropologie
black and white striped straws, layer cake shop

april has been a busy month so far! between birthdays, opening day and still getting used to a much shorter haircut, here’s a bit of what i’ve been up to…
i always have to stop and check out the flowers…
these ban.do goodies made for a great birthday! mark knows me too well…
baseball season is here! we couldn’t believe how difficult it was to find an open bar that was showing the game! c’mon, dallas! it’s the rangers!
and it may not look like it, but i took about 7 1/2 inches off of my hair. i’ve been growing it out for years, and while i kind of had a breakdown on the way home, it felt nice to get rid of it.
birthday mambo taxi, anyone?

i don’t know about you, but i love browsing etsy, looking for fun unique pieces to add to my closet. here are a few pieces that are perfect for spring…
this polka dot pouch by scout & catalogue is absolutely adorable.
i definitely have a soft spot for hearts, so this canvas tote from bodomint is right up my alley. it’d be a perfect tote to carry to the market or just to the coffee shop to get some work done.
i’m loving the bright red on this foldover colorblocked clutch from byMART. this poppy red is the stuff of dreams.
this roses pouch from leah goren is so gorgeous. i love the faces pouch, too!
which bag is your favorite?
i found out that i needed glasses when i was in first grade. i remember my mother and i attending a parent-teacher conference, and my teacher explaining to my mother that i was having problems reading. i remember feeling so stupid and embarrassed, especially because i could read just fine at home. continue reading
i must confess, i wasn’t too impressed when i first saw kate spade’s april collection. while the pieces were beautiful, none of them really seemed like pieces that i would actually wear. now that the pieces are in-store, i’m changing my tune a little.
here are some pieces that i’m currently lusting after:
riviera garden graduated statement necklace

while i love a good print or pop of color in the home, i love landscape photos. dallas isn’t too scenic, so if i’m able to be transported to the coast or the mountains in my own living room, i’m going for it. here are a few of my favorites…
