Everything Has A Meaning

One of my favorite jewelry brands (I have a lot, don't judge) is Dogeared. Dogeared has been around for awhile-I remember seeing them at Nordstrom when I was in 8th grade and was allowed to go to the mall by myself with friends-but I never really took the time to actually appreciate the meaning behind each necklace, bracelet, or set of earrings. Working at the magazine has allowed me to really look into Dogeared though and see the beauty behind each delicate and dainty piece. I've decided that the Karma necklace featured below is one of my favorites, not only because of the meaning-which i believe in whole heartedly-but because of its simplicity. Take time to read each of these cute?

All that Glitters

This seems a bit premature, buuuuutttt I can't wait to show you some of my favorite dresses from the new frock! by Tracy Reese Holiday 2011 collection. I went to the press preview yesterday, got to meet the lovely Tracy Reese, and saw some of the cutest party dresses for the holiday season. I never thought I'd wish summer away this quickly, but seriously, how many more days until Hanukkah/Christmas/New Years? I think my favorite is the black lace A-line dress. That'll be on my wish list.

Flower Power: Peonies

Ask any girl to name one of her favorite things and I bet you 9 out 10 would say fresh cut flowers. There's something to be said about a vase of beautiful flowers, no matter what kind. Peonies are one of my favorites and I lust after them every time I walk by a market that sells fresh flowers on the streets of NYC. I'm thinking I should pick some up soon...

Friday Happiness

-taken from here-

It's the weekend! Are you all ready for a few days without work? I know I definitely am. Things have been so crazy in the office, but hopefully now it'll calm down a bit. Looking forward to a few boring days here at Fitness. I'm also really looking forward to my jam packed weekend. Tonight I am headed to a local outdoor theater to see Annie (as long as the weather holds up)-when was the last time you watched that movie?! Tomorrow is my boy's grad school graduation party (fiesta themed, mustachios, sombreros, tequila and all!). And then Sunday is a very exciting day, not only do I get to reunite with my college roomies who I haven't seen since February, but I get to see them while seeing Taylor Swift in concert in Boston. Pretty freaking excited. Then I'm playing hooky from work on Monday so I can spend some time up in Massachusetts. Hope you all have a fab weekend! See you on the other side! xx

Take Me Back to First Grade

I woke up this morning, did my daily "get ready for work" routine, went downstairs to get my lunch packed up, and saw a little yellow envelope sitting on my kitchen counter. Normally my mail consists of credit card bills, letters asking me to sign up for this magazine or that credit cards, and magazines. I very rarely get some good old snail mail. This morning, however, was different.

I saw the return address was from CS, my best friend who recently moved to Newport, RI (lucky little girl she is), and was thrilled. She sent me a little note that let me know she was thinking of me and it was full of hugs. I miss her dearly and can't wait to send her a little note in return. We'll be like old school pen-pals. I kind of like it.

Since I am now in the letter writing mood, I decided to look into one of my favorite designer's stationary collection. I hope you all fall in love with Kate Spade's adorable collection too...which should I get??

It's been a while! So sorry for my lack of posts these days! Between work insanity, being away, and then more work insanity, I haven't had time to get new posts up. Hopefully that will all change now, for a little while anyway.

I got back from vacation last week and I have to be honest, I wish I never had to come back. Between lounging on the beach every morning, splashing in the pool every afternoon, and eating delicious meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner!), I'm pretty sure I lived the life for the few days that I was away. We all got a little burnt (okay, a lot), but besides that and my boyfriends fear of flying (he literally gripped the seat the entire way down to Punta Cana), we had an amazing time.

Here are some pics of the fun we all had!

Jet Setting: Punta Cana

So I have been totally MIA this week and I apologize to all of my loyal readers! Things have been super crazy at work (photo shoots, late nights, chaos beyond belief), and I really haven't had time to get some new posts up. I will be heading out of town on a MUCH NEEDED vacation tomorrow to Punta Cana with my boy and some of our friends. Hopefully lots of fun pics to post when I get back. For now here are some pics of where I will be ready to get J.E.A.L.O.U.S. (if I were you, I totally would be right now :P).

Hope you all had a lovely week...have a great weekend all <3
