Studded Sweatshirt

Thursday, August 28, 2014

I was actually tempted to spend 250 dollars on a sweatshirt - I'm a sucker for anything studded. Thankfully, I remembered that Forever 21 makes imitation pieces like nobody's business. I did a quick "studded sweatshirt" search on Forever and I made a 30 dollar purchase - 220 dollars cheaper than my original impulse.

That's a great save.

Thank you Forever 21 for sparing my bank account from a massive withdrawal.

 One of my best friends is getting married! It's hard to believe that someone I played tennis with as a 12 year old is getting hitched. 

As a bridesmaid (so honored) we were tasked with pinning different ideas to some wedding pinterest boards. My natural instinct was to pin anything Harry Potter related. Well, not surprisingly, my friend chose to have a Harry Potter themed engagement party! I say not surprisingly because several years ago the two of us took a special trip to Harry Potter World for the DVD release of the last movie. Needless to say, she is as obsessed with Harry Potter as I am - well, maybe not as obsessed. 

This gathering was truly spectacular. Her family, and the groom's family, put together the most beautiful party. The event was chock-full of little Harry Potter details - sorting hat caramels and butterbeer cupcakes to name a few examples. 

It was a magical night.

I am a huge fan of Bobby Flay - Bar Americain is one of my favorite restaurants. When my mom told me about his newest venture, Gato, I immediately bumped it to the top of our 
restaurants-to-try list. 

I'm sorry Bobby, I wasn't impressed. 

Our entrees, pasta and a kale paella, didn't hit the mark. The paella in particular was incredibly bland. The appetizer was good but the portions were off - a lot of dip with hardly any pita . The highlight of the meal was my bread pudding dessert, however, it had so much sugar dusting that I inhaled it and had a coughing fit

I think for any future Bobby Flay meals I'll stick with Bar Americain.

The Tunic

Monday, August 18, 2014

I have been in a tunic type of mood this summer and each time I buy a new one it's from J. Crew
J. Crew has really outdone themselves with the fun quirky pieces. I envision wearing this tunic in the winter under a cozy cardigan and bringing it on many warm weathered vacations when it's snowing out.

But the real question remains - what is better than chambray and neon embroidery?
