weekend snaps

June 24, 2013

i really can’t express to you how much i love summer. even though sunday was gray and rainy, it was warm enough that we walked without coats to the drugstore and back, not minding the occasional fat drops of rain landing on us willy-nilly. and really, saturday was so hot, sunny and gorgeous that even i found all those rain clouds a little relieving as i caught up on chores and errands without any guilt felt for missing out on spectacular weather.

the better the weather though, the more inspired i am to photo-document everything i do. going through my photos from friday and saturday i was surprised to note a pink theme. i don’t know about you but i love finding themes in otherwise unrelated pics. i arrange my facebook albums by season and i often notice at the close of each season that one color seems to dominate. spring 2013 was decidedly bright green and this summer looks to be taking on a pink hue judging by what i’ve snapped so far.

the pink party continues

March 6, 2012

i’m a little worried at how much i am liking pink lately- soft pink, to be exact. i definitely blame yelle.

i’m obsessed with mixing pale pinks- sheer pale pink being my favorite choice- with cuffed dark wash jeans and flats with bright blue patent leather cap toes or with modern, earthy pyrite jewelry and dark brown oxfords. they’re the only combinations i can dream of donning currently. too bad i own no pink clothing, not really.

this is my spring lust list currently–

i am also very excited to be posting my first ever super snazzy blog style photo layout! ta da! ok, yes, it needs quite a bit of tweaking. i will definitely get to that soon enough but … ! i am so happy that a luddite such as myself is finally stepping into the late 90’s. mega thanks to my wonderful friend, allison (no relation!) for showing me how to get started!

pink party

December 14, 2011

remember when i got all crazy excited over the new yelle video the other week? well, i’m still obsessed!



as a general rule, i am not a very big fan of the color pink but i seem to be finding all sorts of things in lovely pale rose / blush shades that the pre-CUE (that’s short for ‘comme un enfant’!) me would have ignored. crazily, i am imagining myself decked out in a party of pink! see here–
