BEST OF THE BEST: OSCARS 2013

Who watched the Oscars last night? My roommates and I had a few friends over to eat Indian and judge the red carpet, of course! Next year I want to throw a pajamas and pearls party. Aside from the red carpet goodness, I adored the Les Mis number- Eddie Redmayne is so dreamy. My pick for best dressed of the night is Jessica Chastain. Who was your fave?

Painted Floors

I love the look of painted floors. I first fell in love with them when I saw Mary McDonalds work (yes, I’m obsessed with her). They add an extra dimension to a room and are such an interesting alternative to other floorcoverings.  What do you guys think? Patterns? Solids?

Click It While It’s Hot: 2.15.2013

There was too much good stuff on social media this week. My Instagram feed and Google Reader were out of control with beautiful pics from fashion week. Here are my favorite links of the week:cd041be80a348939bd73f428351f997b

Last Week in Instagram: 2.12.2013

This past week was a typical winter week- ice, snow, schoolwork, repeat. I broke up the monotony by making valentines, scheduling fun dinners with friends, and dreaming about the two warm-weather vacations I have planned with friends!

Biker Boot Roundup

It’s still quite chilly here in DC and I have been lusting after boots to keep me warm during my walks to class.  Biker boots are so comfortable and the perfect addition to any outfit.  Here are some of my favorites from J.Crew, Madewell, Ralph Lauren, Rag & Bone, and Zara.

Week(s) In Review

Charlotte posts about her week’s instagram pictures so I thought I’d get in on this and share some of mine–from the past couple of weeks.  I went to the inauguration, a glam ball, made some really cute name cards for a dinner with friends, and there was a dusting of snow.  Also, I finally went to Blue Duck Tavern with my parents this past weekend when they visited DC. Absolutely delicious.


Happy Hour: 2.7.2013

I love a good cocktail and pick one over a glass of wine 9 times out of 10. My liquor of choice is vodka (I always splurge and get Grey Goose as I find it far superior to any other brand). Vodka mixes well with almost anything, but my very favorite addition is St. Germain (elderflower liquer).

Mix equal parts vodka and St. Germain over ice. Top with either champagne (for a boozier kick) or club soda (simpler and calorie free), and squeeze in lots of lemon. Cheers!

 

Currently Coveting: Valentine’s Edition

I’m not a big fan of Valentine’s Day as it tends to make me feel a little lonely, but I do love Valentine’s cards and feminine little trinkets. I would be thrilled to receive any of the below items, particularly the jewelry or the candle (which I’m contemplating buying for myself)…
