Last year I participated in an awesome A to Z challenge, and as far as I remember, I never completed it. I want to try it again this year, and my theme is going to be 30 days of outfits. I am going to share a new outfit a day, there won’t be any particular theme, but the outfits are going to somehow start with the letters of the alphabet and go in that order for the whole month of April! I am also going to post outfit photos on Instagram for those 30 days with a special hashtag #30daysofoutfits. I am pretty sure I have enough pairs of shoes to last me through the 30 days, but if I don’t, shoes are the only items that will be repeated. I am hoping to revive some of the forgotten pieces from my closet, and bring up my style game!

Monday Wants though, skirts! And lace! And can’t forget about bright summer shoes (the snowy Minnesota weather outside my window is mocking me silently!)

MW – Breath of Spring

ORI

Mondays are hard, and after having spent all weekend at work and babysitting, I decided to add a new section to my blog that will focus on wish lists and my Monday Wants. Today some of my wants are:

1. Warmer weather.

2. Spring come sooner.

3. Fun and flirty dresses.

4. For my cold to go away.

5. Raw Oregon Hazelnuts from Trader Joe’s.

How is your Monday going?

Marc Jacobs, Aveda and an Awesome Saturday overall!

News #1: It’s finally spring weather in Minneapolis, it was a beautiful day, 65 degrees, yeah, I couldn’t ask for more!

News #2: I splurged and got that Marc Jacobs watch! Here is my new baby:

News #3: I got Brooked! Again! And you can get too! Plus if you tell her that you were referred by me, your $25 haircut will turn into $15! How awesome is that!

Here is Brooke’s info you guys! She is absolutely wonderful!

Hope your Saturday was as good as mine!

Doodles,

Studs where?

Thank you Ke$ha, I will never look at the studs the same way again. I am pretty sure you are brainless, otherwise this would’ve never happened. At least you went for golden ones, not platinum or diamond… hehe

On the other note, it’s this time of year when I go in for a hair cut. And this time it’s going to be banging! Yes, my friends, I am getting bangs, next Friday! So mark your calendars and don’t forget to check up on me ๐Ÿ˜‰

How is working at Clinique? – Wonderful, the most exciting job I’ve ever had (probably until gift with purchase comes around – LOL – but mark your calendars for that, because it’s a pretty neat gift )

And unless the weather app is lying to me, it’ll be in the 50s here in Minneapolis next week! Buh-bye snow and hello spring!

Doodles,

Z

Something Inspirational

I noticed a lot of bloggers were talking about Spring, and needless to say today is when “We spring forward”! My favorite place in the world to watch the coming of spring is New York City (The Reservoir, The Conservatory Gardens)

I also kind of felt like the past several posts have been pretty depressing. And not wanting to be a complete Debbie Downer, I decided to share something that is inspirational to me. And in spite of the fact that I do love spring, I love summer more. And the first thing that comes to mind when I think summer is…

Zooey Deschanel!

You can also read a great article about some fun summer activities if you follow the link below. Because summer is coming after all!

And don’t forget that it’s all about love after all! <3 <3 <3 (Took me forever to figure those out!)

 

 

 

 

 

I once met a woman during some afternoon wine, who looked a lot like Zooey. I didn’t hesitate to tell her that, and she considered that to be the highest compliment. Turned out Zooey is the number one “girl-crush” out there! Yes, girls have crushes too!

I’ve been to her concert at Terminal 5, and she was more than amazing! Unfortunately my camera died, so there are no videos, but here is one of my fav songs by her!
