southern hospitality

I just got back from a perfect southern weekend in Charleston, South
Carolina. And if you have never been... you need to go immediately.
Not to be dramatic but IT IS THE BEST TOWN IN AMERICA.
I am completely obsessed with the culture and the food... oh my gosh, 
the food will change your life completely. From fried green tomatoes to
shrimp and grits- it is soooo good. 

I got to witness bridge run 2k10 across the cooper river bridge, 
drive through old downtown and stare "wide eyed" at the most 
amazing porches that I have ever seen. Houses are pink and blue 
and yellow and just plain happy. The beach is also a lovely 15 minutes 
away- do you see why this is the best place ever??  I will just show 
you what I mean... and there are also candy stores everywhere.

headed to charleston...

Getting on a plane in the morning for the most charming 
city in America. I cannot wait to see this place...
Heres to oversized front porches, sweet iced tea, spring
gardens, and lots of southern charm. Amen.

chanel lipstick.

A few weeks ago KB introduced me to lipstick. Apparently it is the staple of the working girl {cough cough, I think I need a job to be a "working girl" but at least I am ready if that comes along.}  I was also tired of looking unbelievably washed out in every single picture of myself, the joys of winter and fair skin. So I began the perfect shade of lipstick hunt... and then I saw this ad.* I love it. She looks flawlessly beautiful, fair skin and all. I bought the new Chanel Rouge Allure lipstick in Comedia. And, I have to tell you that I am now a fan of lipstick. {Sandra Bullock at the Oscars also convinced me... She was wearing the new Chanel Rouge lipstick too.} And thanks to KB, I am now a believer in lipstick and a belieber too.

 *Disclaimer: I am a marketing major so I really appreciate a good ad and packaging and anything that is basically aesthetically pretty.  

anthropologie visuals

I am in the process of interviewing at Anthropologie right now {with hopes and dreams of being in the visual department... crossing my fingers behind my back and praying a lot.} Just look at these displays... they are incredible, inspiring, and I am blown away by all of them. I would go as far to say that I kind of want to live inside of an Anthropologie, specifically the one at Rockefeller Center. It's a magical experience inside that store. I could at one time probably spend up to 3 hours just looking at the visuals.

::grey walls::

via domino files & decorpad

I officially moved into my new home on Saturday. Its a perfect little house with girly little touches everywhere... its only downfall- the current color of my bedroom. Its pale yellow, or actually it might be white mixed with yellow- yuck. I am dying for some light grey walls people.  Grey walls have become my bedroom go to color and I have had them in my past three rooms.  I told myself that I wasn't going to paint but I might have to change my mind on that one :)

spring break withdrawal

dont you miss spring break? 
this is the first time in four years that i 
have not been on the beaches of florida with 
all of my best friends... sad day.

new york for dinner

I spent this past monday and tuesday in the air with JetBlue Airways and if you have never flown JetBlue... you should. It is the best airline: endless snacks, roomie seats, and personal television the ENTIRE flight. It was flying bliss, which was such a treat since I was in the air on Monday and Tuesday. I flew to close the doors on nyc and enjoy dinner with youngk. We had a total 14 hours together which included 7 hours of sleep = crazy trip for me. I returned with two packed suitcases, closure on the empire state, and my mac back :) I have missed this computer and so has my blog.

I love her. and will miss her so much.

anthropologie + weddings

That's right people! My wildest dreams are coming true- anthropologie is starting their own wedding line to be previewed in Spring 2011. The line is starting out as an online endeavor and then moving into select stores.  And dont you worry, its going to have products that cover the entire spectrum... gowns, invitations, shoes, accessories, bridesmaids, etc.  I am seriously so excited about this... and thankful that someone is revamping the bridesmaid's dress market. I am still baffled that people think that mid calf is an attractive length for a dress?

welcome to the big D

I have to tell you that this week has been quite an interesting one back in the lone star state... highlight of my week would have to be the "donny dallas" event last night at Neimans. I have never seen so many blazers, tiny dogs in shoulder bags or light blue button downs in my life. Thank goodness they were serving champagne by the bottle (kidding). And we got to sort of see Nicole Richie from a distance and feel like Dallas socialites minus the money and botox and tiny dogs in designer sweaters... And after seeing Nicole last night I want to say that yes, she is the smallest person I have ever seen. How has she had two children??

so i leave you with TID: this is dallas.  and welcome to my new life.
