Street Style

September 20, 2011

I ran across this blog post today and was pleasantly surprised by the fashion sense of these handsome fellas.  Of course, I had to search around on my own to find a few more well dressed misters out there.  I love it when a man has just as much fun as the ladies when it comes to fashion and expressing himself.  Here were some of my favorites:

Aren’t these great?  Looks like I’ll be adding men street style blogs to my google reader from now on.

Beg Bicycles

June 24, 2011

Am I just super late to the Beg Bicycle party or what?  I ran across this website and I’m in awe of the pretty bikes and accessories!! Now, I realize biking is totally the ‘in thing’ right now and let me be the first one pushing that bandwagon.  Wait, do you push a bandwagon?  How exactly does that even work?  Whatever.  Of course, these pretty pieces come from Europe.  You just had to, didn’t ya?  Check them out and fall in love with bicycles….


I’ll take one of everything, please.  Like…now.  Bring it to me.  Check out the Beg Bicycle blog.  It’s sooooo cute.

Home Sweet Home

May 19, 2011

I’m home, I’m home!  The vacation was one of the most beautiful experiences in my 29 years of existence.  We spent the past two weeks running, biking, taking trains, taxis, walking, dancing and wide-eyed exploring all over Scotland and Ireland.  Yes, I’m already planning my next trip.  I cannot get enough of Europe. 

I’ll write some in-depth posts later but I’m spending the rest of day watching Across the Universe, doing laundry and eating white chocolate peanut butter.  The vacation was everything I dreamed of and more.  I love when that happens.

The weather was perfect tonight, so after work I went on a bike ride. I started off by myself and then decided the ride would be much more fun with a friend. I invited Chrissy along and, just like I knew it would be, the night got even better.

We rode to a park. Played on the swing sets. Then we continued on to Starbucks and sat on the patio, sipping lattes as the sun went down.

I’m learning more and more how much lovelier life experiences are if you have good people around to share them with. We’re created for community although we fight against it. Sometimes it’s nice to give in and enjoy one another.

Ah, springtime.

{Kate Spade} Bike Love

April 14, 2011

So, I’m not a huge label/brand kind of girl but this Kate Spade bike is SO CUTE I can barely stand it. 

And just when you think you can’t take any more they come out with this adorable video.  Smitten kitten.  It’s time for a bike ride.

A huge thanks to Molly for sharing the info about this little beauty.

Support Handmade/Local Art

April 7, 2011

Somehow, I’ve been put in the path of some very talented and creative souls.  It’s a joy to see what they’ll come up with next.  Because of this, I try to support some of my favorite artists as much as possible.  I know a lot of you feel the same.  I think it’s a blogging thing.  *smile

This week, I purchased a few handmade things that I’m pretty excited about.

This necklace from Elsie’s shop.  She’s one of the reasons I started blogging (almost a year ago) so I’ll always show mad love to her and the Red Velvet girls.

Next on the list….my dear friend Carli makes the most beautiful stationery.  I ordered a few of my favorites and cannot wait to send some pretty letters out into the world.  You should check out her etsy shop!!  Knowing how much love Carli puts into each piece makes it that much better.  Plus, she’s one of my best friends in the world.

Letters of Love Stationery //Bike// Set of 8

Alright, I’m off to Austin, TX for another crazy weekend.  Think brunch, kayaks, coffee dates with Carli, vintage shopping, live music and sleeping late.
