happy weekend

happy weekend y’all! i think this weekend calls for much cooking & baking! i made my first pie last weekend, and so i’m going to attempt another one. any ideas? i think i’ll head to the farmer’s market tomorrow and see what yummy fresh fruit i can find! also, i found a recipe for homemade dog bones & delicious looking pancakes! feast your eyes…

doesn’t this look amazing?

and how fun are these dog treats? i think fin & kaia would love these.

i got both of these recipes from sweet paul’s blog. check out his magazine – i love the layout! happy weekend!


is it really friday again? thank goodness – i love the weekend. but who doesn’t? today i thought i would give a little etsy love. i can spend all day surfing around etsy – it’s one of my most favorite things to do!! who are your favorite etsy artists?

how fun is this yellow dress? i would love to wear this on a beautiful saturday afternoon looking for antiques!

yeah! it’s friday!! i am so excited because my first moleskine journal just came in the mail yesterday!! yes, funny name, serious notebook! it is so cute and so petite and i can’t wait to start doodling in it. oh the possibilities of design…

  • in the hunt for a daily planner? check this one out
  • i think i need this one to store inspirations in
  • going on a vacation? how cool is this? or this one?

to say i’m obsessed with these journals is a complete understatement. they make my heart so happy! heres’s a bit of history of the moleskin:

For two centuries now Moleskine® (mol-a-skeen’-a) has been the legendary notebook of artists, writers, intellectuals and travelers. From gifted artists Henri Matisse (1869–1954) and Vincent van Gogh (1853–1890), to poet and leader of the surrealist movement André Breton (1896-1966) to Ernest Hemingway (1899-1961) considered the most influential writer of the last century, to famous travel writer Bruce Chatwin (1940-1989). These notebooks have proven they can withstand the trials of travel and abuses that ensues from normal use. This is the one true trusted travel journal.

today i thought i would post about one of my new obsessions – liberty of london! and what’s great is they just opened an inexpensive line at TARGET on march 14, and i of course went on sunday and bought a super cute tunic!

here are some of their fancier items:

love this pink speckle print fitted dress

how fun would this print be in an entry way

this is interesting. has anyone heard of this before?

and here are their items sold at target:

i would for sure garden in these gloves

wear this fun floral scarf on a gorgeous spring day

these journals are so fun – and they come in a nice set of 3! keep one for yourself & give away 2 for friends!

have your morning coffee or tea out of this green print mug

happy shopping!

today, i thought it would be fun to do a post on “things in my purse.” i absolutely love my coach bag and do not go anywhere without it. acutally most of the things in my purse are from coach (forgive me, i’m a bit of a coachaholic). here’s my audrey…

adore: i JUST bought this adorable banana yellow leather clutch (i rationalized this purchase because coach had sent me a 25% off coupon – yup, they love me!)

next up, my planner. i would be forever lost without this planner. i’ve had it for a few years now and it has never let me down. is it weird that i have 3 planners? all in different locations? this one is the prettiest though…

i also have a coach wallet, but am on the hunt for a new one! any ideas?

and my last coach item, i promise, is my cute makeup bag. love this color! if i didn’t have this, my lipsticks and bobby pins would be flying all around the bottom of my bag.

i simply cannot go anywhere without my burt’s bees chapstick (especially living in colorado now), bobby pins (plain and my patterned anthropologie ones), hand lotion (skin is so dry right now), mini brush (my pet peeve is tangled hair), stila lip glaze (in fruit punch), mac lipstick, cuticle cutters (yup, a girl must always have clean cuticles), or my pilot g-2 05 black pen.

other odds and ends: my cute pink swiss army knife (which reminds me, i must take out before boarding the plan today), hand sanitizer (do not want to catch swine flu), business cards + holder (i have a really cute holder, but can’t take a picture, because it’s mirrored), gum and mints!

what’s in your purse?
