Happy Valentine’s Day – or Not!

Image via Pinterest

I know there are those who love Valentine’s Day (pink! hearts! true love! date night! romance!) and those who hate it (too sappy! too commercialized! singles power!). I can confidently say I LIKE Valentine’s Day. It’s not my favorite holiday, but any excuse to buy/receive flowers and chocolates is okay in my book. So instead of a long-winded post about the virtues vs. the deficiencies of the holiday, I’m just going to do a link love instead. Sound good? Here goes:

Happy Friday! I’m keeping it simple today with some black and white inspiration (above) and a few links (below). What are you up to this weekend? I’ve got a lot of work and school work to do unfortunately, but Troy and I are going back to the General Muir and I can’t wait!

• Kate Mid is in Scotland this week (has she stopped by your flat for tea, Lar?) and naturally she wore a plaid coat.

• Life is Gouda – such a cute desktop wallpaper. Oh, and here’s another awesome wallpaper.

Maddie was in Decatur this week! I wish I had gotten to see her in person.

• The perfect summer sandal.

• Have you heard about this? I can’t even imagine Lar and I being separated at birth.

• Love Audrey Hepburn’s ping pong style.

Lar will be spending her weekend shivering in Munich while I shiver in Atlanta (where is spring?!). What are your plans for the weekend? I hope a nice warm trip to the beach – at least that’s what I’ll be yearning for, plus a few of the items I have linked below.

• If only this Doo.Ri skirt was $1,250 cheaper.

• Reading this post on boyfriend jeans makes me want buy these.

• I fell in love with this leather, laser cut Club Monaco skirt when I saw Jessica wearing it on her blog, then I found this vegan version. So tempted to get it!

• I’m currently watching this on Netflix. Lar and I are huge fans of the show, because we’re giant, anglophile nerds.

• Thanks to Miso Izakaya’s amazing seasonal salad, I’m now on a kale salad kick. I’m going to try making this salad on Saturday – I just got back from the farmer’s market with kale and swiss chard, nom.

• Dogs who just can’t handle it – #19 is my favorite. Thanks for the laugh, Katie!

• H&M has Beyonce and sustainability in the bag.

Follow me on, if you’d like.

Have a wonderful weekend!

• Can’t wait for your first glass of rosé as the weather warms? Turns out it’s good year ’round. (Psst, I did the illustration for this article).

• What are we going to do without Google Reader *sob*? Maybe become legit bloggers by finally getting on Bloglovin (hence our link at the bottom of this post!). Also, here are 6 alternatives.

• The easiest kale salad recipe ever.

• This is something we can get behind: The 10-Year Hoodie. It’s made to last a lifetime.

TGIF Friday Link Love: My Spring Wish List

Happy Friday and International Women’s Day! I’m mixing things up a bit and doing my spring wish list for this week’s link love. I tried to get Lar to create her own wish list, but her anti-consumerism got the best of her. Stay strong, Lar! 
Spring Wish List


1.) The perfect spring/summer dress.

2.) The summer version of the classic button-up chambray shirt.

3.) A beautiful ring for less than $150.

4.) There’s something so feminine and ballet-ic about this cami.

5.) Neon khakis seems oxymoronic, but also ingenius.

6.) The clutch that goes with everything.

7.) The perfect flats for work.

Audrey Hepburn in a new commercial? You can tell it’s an Audrey double and CGIed, but still amazing!

• Kate Spade Saturday: a sister (and cheaper? Fingers crossed!) line that’s uber cute.

• Uber delicious and uber healthy recipes.

• Time to get rid of your social media icons? Discuss.

• How to be more creative.

• You still have time to enter Cath’s Margarita give-away (contest closes at midnight tonight). Cheers, lovelies!

TGIF Link Love + Nail Polish!

AsianCajuns Double Mint nail polish


Happy Friday, lovelies! See those photos up there? See that nail polish? Yeah, that’s AsianCajuns nail polish!!! Actually the official color is called AsianCajuns Double Mint. Get it? Like it? I hope so!

This is all thanks to Coco Rae and Tastemaker Magazine. Coco Rae’s Spring/Summer line is inspired by Atlanta bloggers and we all celebrated with a sneak peek party last night at Fab’rik in Buckhead. I’ll let you all know when the polish is officially available.

In the meantime, check out the fabulous bloggers who also have a color in the collection: The Fashionista Next Door, The ATL Go To Girl, Lipgloss and Binky, Mattieologie, The Style Pundit.

And here’s a couple more links to take you into the weekend:

Happy Friday, Bloggerinos (that’s you)! We’re starting the weekend off with some goodies from our pinterest boards. It’s been a long week for me and I need some pinspiration to ease me out of a stressful week:

• You can follow AsianCajuns on Pinterest (and Cath here and Lar/me here) if you fancy some more pinspiration and puppies in swimming pools — awwwwww!

Guess who traveled almost a million miles in the past four years? Hint: her initials are H.C.

• A sparkly make-up tutorial from one of our favorite bloggers.

The necklace we get the most compliments on when we wear it (I say “we” cuz we share it)

• A SuperBowl make-up tutorial. Yes, you read that right.

• Your inspirational reading for the weekend.

• One of our guilty pleasures is following Kate Middleton’s style choices. We aren’t the only ones. In the latest British Vogue they chronicle everything from the size of her curls to the preferred angle of her fascinators in a six-page spread called Katepedia.
