I am dreaming of this yellow and grey striped cashmere sweater. I love the pale yellow and grey combination, the sweet button detailing on the shoulders and the uber soft fabric isn't bad either! Today I would pair it with my favorite level 99 straight leg jeans (almost as soft as the sweater...almost) and some grey suede pumps (I love this pair from Urban Outfitters...comfortable and affordable). Throw in some pale pink nail polish, a funky silver cuff bracelet and one of fabric & handle's darling shopping totes (with adjustable leather straps) and you are ready to go! Here are the details...
We all know that Anthropologie has a wide selection of beautiful clothing. But they also offer unique and lovely items for your home. I am particularly fond of their kitchen items...here are my favorites!
I love simple fashion, and I try to fill my closet with pieces that can be worn many different ways. Dressed up or down depending on the occasion. I have had my eye on a few of the above items for a little while. I love the 70's style bell-bottoms, a-la-rachel-zoe, and I think that the vintage lace top is beautiful. Did I mention that I really love the color navy? Well, I really do! You can't go wrong with a navy blazer in your closet and a bottle of taupe nail polish is a must! Now, I do own one of the items pictured above and I may or may not have found it at my local Nordstrom Rack (at a great price)! Yes, the Rebecca Minkoff clutch is mine... lucky me, one out of ten is not bad!
I have seen several great photographs of "rainbow cakes" floating around the internet recently. They are all so fun, colorful and tasty looking that I had to try to make one myself! So, I made it my Sunday project, and it turned out to be lovely and delicious!
The Flaming Lips are widely known for their extravagant live shows and have been considered to be one of the "50 bands to see before you die." I saw them live at Red Rocks in 2009, and it was one of the best concerts I have ever seen. If you have the opportunity to see them live I highly recommend taking advantage of it. It promises to be a show to remember! Here are some photos I took at the 09 Red Rocks show...

This evening, after meeting my husband for happy hour, I decided to pop-in to Forever 21 (XXI Forever to be exact). I could wonder around this store for hours and continue to find items I have not yet seen (note: I choose not to do this...but I could). It is a bit like being on a treasure hunt...partially because there is so much to see and partially because once you find something, finding it again (or in another size/color) can be near impossible...sigh!
Here are a 5 of the treasures I discovered tonight...
It's almost friday! And, in honor of the "almost weekend" I wanted to share a yummy cocktail recipe with you all. The "blooming daisy" is a recreation of a delicious cocktail from one of my favorite restaurants!
*what you need*
vodka (of your choice)
Now for the good stuff...
1. put some ice and a bit of water in your martini glass and let it chill
2. throw a few raspberries (fresh or frozen) into your martini shaker
3. squeeze some lemon juice in there
4. muddle the raspberries and lemon juice together - yum!
5. pour 1 shot of grand marnier and add it in...
6. pour 1 shot of vodka and toss it in (this is getting good, right?)
7. repeat (yes, you heard me!)
8. top it all off with some ice in the shaker
9. put the lid on and give it a few really good shakes
10. pour the liquid goodness into your chilled martini glass
(garnish with an extra raspberry...if you so desire)
side note: this was delicious with the chick-fil-a sandwich I enjoyed for dinner ;)
