Spring Wishlist

The temperature is rising, and with the emergence of the snow drops in my front yard and the azaleas in the back, it really seems like spring is here or at the very least on it’s way. This time of year always leads to a general lightening of life for me, everything from clothing, to hair color, to mood. Heck, I even wear less make up: some tinted moisturizer (with SPF of course), a swipe of highlighter, and a natural lip color, and I am good to go, which, in hindsight, is probably good considering Florida’s weather is notoriously fickle and at least once a week I’ll find myself stuck somewhere without an umbrella because of unexpected rain. I love it though, it’s such a brief season here, and it leaves me lamenting my hours spent at the office instead of enjoying the rare glorious weather. When I lived on campus while I was in college, I’d load up my tote bag with books and water and then spend the afternoon stretched out on the green in front of the library.

My mom is here visiting for a couple of weeks so I am hoping that she and I will get a chance to do some spring-ish type activities. Things like walking around some of the local parks, eating lunch outside, and maybe even doing a little gardening. What are you looking forward to this spring?


Fit for a Princess

Instagram can be a dangerous place. One moment you’re catching up with the 20 different cats you follow and commenting on your friend’s baby pictures, and then BAM! There is an add for beautiful sparkle things. How is a girl supposed to defend herself? I am very susceptible to beautiful merchandise, especially when it’s well photographed and already tagged with the line “pretty things”. This weekend saddled me with another tab in my “bookmarks”, Erica Elizabeth Designs.

 Now, technically these items are billed as “wedding accessories” but I think there are plenty of non-matrimonially related reasons to want a tiara. You know, something important like a Tuesday or going to brunch. 
It was difficult for me to decide which photos to share with you guys, everything on the site is stunning, but I found myself gravitating towards the floral pieces that reminded me of spring, with a few celestial inspired items thrown in there for variety. Actually, If I were pressed to pick a favorite, I think for once the flowers would lose. That piece with crescents and the stars? It’s giving me some wonderful art nouveau flashbacks, and I have visions of wearing it with inky indigo gowns and some silver shimmer dusted on my cheekbones…..

Which one is your favorite?
