Five for Friday: Decor, Food and Fashion

Did you ever return from a vacation feeling more in need of a vacation than ever before??? Between logistical issues with travel and having one eye on things back on the home front, I just didn't get the ideal down time to mentally check-out and recharge. It was super fabulous to be somewhere that the sun was shining and I didn't have to layer up like this...

The first day back from vacation, I tripled layered Patagonia fleece and down. This weather back home has been unbearable! Please come soon spring!

Beach Bound

Just over a month ago, I finally convinced the Sailor that we need a tropical escape. When I was younger, my mom used to repeatedly remind me of the difference between "needs" and "wants." This tropical escape, my friends, is a NEED.

Like everyone else, I am SO over the snow, ice and cold weather. Yes, we do live in the Northeast, so it's to be expected. And it is very pretty the first few times it snows-- I get excited like a little kid all over again. But this. is. too. much. I would relocate to Texas or the Carolinas in a heartbeat if my love would agree to it. Anyway, just about a month ago, we booked a last minute getaway to the BVI's and departure day is nearly here! I couldn't be more excited!

Wednesday Wish List

Loving these Alice high heels from Boden. They also come in black/pewter-- more practical but not nearly as much fun!

Interior Design Inspiration

You guys... Periodically I make myself the promise that I'm going to blog on a regular and consistent basis. And it just doesn't happen. I envy the bloggers that have the time and discipline to do it every day! Anyway, it's not for lack of inspiration (most days at least!) I've been pinning and crafting and  cooking, making my own adaptations of ideas from around the blogosphere and Pinterest. And let's talk design--There's so much "pretty stuff" out there in the design world that I've wanted to share, so now is the time!

I think I could find the time to blog if my "office" looked like this!

Loving Lately: Tea, Theory and Fabletics

Happy Tuesday! So much for #blizzardof2015. Hmph! I was expecting to wake up to a foot of the white fluffy stuff here in upstate NY. And...nothing! We barely got a dusting. The kid in me is completely disappointed!
