Guilty Pleasures & Chicness

One of my favorite guilty pleasures is scrolling through Pinterest swooning over street fashion.  (*sidenote  The Sartorialist is a must see blog for street trends) 

Are you on the ever addicting Pinterest? 
As much as I adore pinning my days away there are still those
days when I miss holding the glossy pages of a mag in my hand.
You know, back when you "pinned" your faves by folding down the top corner of the page!

Wishing you all a great weekend full of unforgettable memories!

Happy Lil' Friday

What better way to celebrate and welcome the first Little Friday of Fall
then with yummy cocktails?!

Last night as I began to round up cocktails to share with all of you, I stopped by my go-to blog when party planning, Hostess with the Mostess.  While browsing a few different bevs, I stumbled upon what I believe to be an amaze balls round up of Autumn tasties! 
Why mess with perfection?

Thank you HWTM for helping us all kick the fall season off!

For The Love Of Cooking

Fresh Fig and Flat-bread

I discovered this recipe over at Running with Tweezers and immediately could relate to Tami (voice behind the blog) on how she came to love the fruit.  Just like Tami, growing up all I knew figs to be were Fig Newtons which I thought were completely GROSS!
It wasn't until a year or so ago that I gave fresh and dried figs a try.  
Who knew a fig could be so tasty?!  
Immediately when I stumbled upon this recipe, I knew I had to share with you all! 
I will eat just about any kind of cheese but, blue cheese is OUT!  So for me, I would most likely top this perfect app with Gorgonzola or goat cheese.  Maybe even feta!

Stop by Running with Tweezers for the complete recipe!

Y'all know I'm all for suggestions, tips and tricks when it comes to the kitchen so feel free to share how you would switch up this recipe to make your own?

I Spy: Fall 2012 Trend

Navy paired with Black took the spotlight on the Fall 2012 runways back in February of this year.
Just about every collection seemed to at least have one piece that incorporated the rich blue shade.

I tend to wear navy more in the summer (as I'm sure we all do) since it always seems perfect when beachside...classic nautical vibe.

BUT sound the alarm and wait a tick before packing up the color and 
dragging out your fall threads.  Navy is Tres Chic this season and 100% a must! 

I love how navy paired with black gives off the most mod and mysterious vibe...

Are you a fan of navy?  
I think it is such a versatile color and perfect for any skin tone!

Am I dying to try this sure to be tasty dish for fall...YES
Do I have the patients for the 1-2hour prep time it requires...NO WAY
Will I be a taste tester for anyone who feels extra spunky in the crisp fall air and
gives this recipe a whirl...Absolutely!!

How would you simplify this recipe to cut down on time? 
Is there an easier way to make the pasta noodles?
Please forgive my lack of knowledge in the kitchen but, I am the girl that has a sign over her stove that says "I kiss better than I cook" sad but true! 
I give it my best shot when it comes to cooking however, at 30 years old
I STILL have a lot to learn!

I Spy: Spring 2013

As we start to welcome another season of change and embrace all the warm and rich colors of fall, the fashion world says it's time to turn our sights to a mix of cheerful brights and tranquil neutrals that is Spring 2013.

Last week during NY Fashion Week, Pantone announced the colour palette for next spring and I for one am tickled over the upcoming hues! 
I love that there are pops of bright colors and not just your typical softer tones of spring.  There is even a great mix of basic tones to incorporate with several different looks!

So, what do you think?  Are you diggin??

I will be posting spring inspiration later this week so stop back by!

I Spy: Fall Chic

It's inevitable, fall is on the way!  It never fails, I always sing the blues when summer comes to a close but, honestly I'm not sure why??  I mean hello there's the obvious, packing up bikinis, putting frozen concoctions on hold, and saying song long to hot beach days...who wouldn't be bummed! 
BUT, there are a lot of things I simply adore about fall and quite frankly SWOON over.

The smell of burning leaves (ranking top on the list), mums, pumpkin spice lattes, boots to kill for, and let's not forget football!!!  I love my house most in the fall, I go all out with decorating to give that autumn vibe and the outrageous goodness of warm and cozy Scentsey fragrances (my gf introduced me to the flameless burners and it seriously has rocked my socks off) to captivate the room!

I took some time to browse Pinterest for a little extra inspiration to get me over the transition.

Happy Fall Yall!!
