Lay like broccoli

Sorry I've been missing in action for so very long! I've been stuck in bed feeling completely crumby with a nasty case of bronchitis. Apparently a little known symptom of bronchitis causes you to shun computers for extended periods of time. This evening I've been catching up on blog reading, writing and some not as fun bill-paying. Hope you've all been well! I've got some great plans for the upcoming weekend that I'll reveal with pictures that will most definitely make many of you oh-so-jealous. See you then!

I do love thee, Emerson

So instead of Rosetta Stone (holy expensive Batman!), I used my income tax cash to buy this gorgeous-ness from EmersonMade (all time fave). I've been eagerly awaiting it's arrival ever since I hit the "submit" button on my computer. If you have been living under a rock and don't know about Emerson, (?!) her beautiful clothes, accessories, home goods, and every other gorgeous thing she makes, please be sure to stop by her shop (and be prepared to swoon).

i Heart Tart

I sent these yummy treats to my girls (mom, g-ma and little sis) in Miami for Mother's Day and they were absolutely flabbergasted by the oh-so-delicious-ness. I'd definitely recommend them if you're looking to send someone a sweet something! My little sis said that the packaging was just as nice as the surprise inside. Two thumbs up for the folks at Tart Bakery!

Free & Pretty

I love this woodsy number set. Download them for free on Amy's lovely blog and be sure to check out the DIY instructions on how to use them for pretty table numbers.


My future home

I love, love, love this guesthouse in the Bahamas. I wish I had the financial resources to decorate my own little nest like this. I'll definitely be using it for inspiration though and possibly planning a future getaway. So gorgeous!

Oh, Audrey

Today is Audrey Hepburn's birthday. She is just the most beautiful, graceful woman ever, in my book anyway. I may have to watch Breakfast at Tiffany's tonight in her honour.
