weekly roundup 13/52

Someone buy me these Wooden Heart Sunnies

This post on Buzzfeed is so perfect. I use my friend's but it's only fair since he uses my Netflix account. (I also use another friend's parent's Hulu account.....whooops)

 The Voice started up again this week and I couldn't be more excited! Two favorites so far: This guy (and this cover) and this girl. I also cannot complain about Usher and that smile of his.

Lollapalooza Rumors are taking over my life. I simply cannot wait until the official release on April 9th. ****

This video of an 88 year old grandma getting down will immediately make your day better. You MUST watch until the very end, though. 

Happy Easter, everyone!




how many swipes?

While browsing Birchbox this morning, I was immediately intrigued by THIS article. I mean... anyone who knows me knows I love my lipstick! People always say "Aw, just like your mom...", so maybe thats it? But really, I just love lipstick...

Anyway, back to the article, I never really thought about how many swipes are actually in a tube of lipstick. Luckily, there's the Birchbox team to help us answer that...

My guess was way off with an outrageous 600. According to them, it's actually 293, lasting about 3 months if you apply three times a day per day. Luckily, I switch off between colors so often that a tube lasts me well over a year. 

What would you have guessed?



happy birthday, aries!

Well, I'm a few days late on my happy birthday Aries post! You'd think being an Aries myself that I would have been all over this but I just couldn't seem to get inspired. I started a new job two weeks ago and have been busy cramming my brain with new facts and names.  Anyway, a very happy birthday to all my fellow Aries!

weekly roundup 10/52

Is this not the greatest thing ever? Clearly Elsie over at A Beautiful Mess has the best house, ever. 


Obsessing over this jacket worn by Jessie Artigue from Style and Pepper


Well, it's finally here:  The Hangover 3 Trailer


Chelsea Handler's statement about TSwift is probably very, very true. 



spring 2013 trend report: global prints

If you're go-to style is boho, why not spice things up with some global patterns? Don't be intimated by their loud prints and colors. It is very do-able! Just throw on that jacket with a pair of boyfriend jeans and a white tee and you will be the ultimate trend-setter. 


his style

After posting a recent wanted, lately post, a friend of mine asked if I could make a similar one for men. So, here is my first attempt. Fellow guy friends, where are some of your favorite places to shop? I need some fresh sites to check out for round two of his style

snow day

Another Tuesday, another snow day. Luckily I was able to spend the day indoors and curled up with some blankets. Here are a couple shots from my morning.

Just another cold winter day here in Minnesota. It's March and spring still seems so far away.
