the week in photos.

the weekend is upon us.

there’s wine. relaxation. and a lot of reading ahead of me. and while I’m reading, I’m going to pretend I’m laying on a beach, with a strawberry daiquiri in hand. much like the life [J] is living this weekend. why didn’t I sneak into his suitcase?

the week in photos.

  1. every time you turn on the news, all you hear about is the flu. so I made sure [J] was stocked up on {airborne} before boarding the plane. [free samples comin’ in handy].
  2. my “style” can be pretty plain jane. but that just makes it easier for me to accessorize. love this chunky, gold chain from {charming charlie}.
  3. I’m a fan. of kind bars.
  4. my fave part of [J] & I’s {TwoCoins Etsy Shop} is the not-so-dainty stemware collection. & it’s now on {facebook}. woot woot!
  5. while I was at Trader Joe’s satisfying my wine craving, I found this gem of pasta salad: noodles, chickpeas, lemon oregano dressing, & feta cheese. I recommend.
  6. I sure did eat a giraffe cookie.
  7. last week {} liked one of my photos on instagram. as soon as I saw it, I screamed. pretty cool, right? well today .. Lauren Conrad herself [her personal instagram] liked a different photo. DAY MADE!! it’s the little things in life. thanks LC ;)

have the absolute best, most relaxing weekend.


music festival prep.

there is only one day standing in between me and my first music festival.



this will be me friday, saturday, & sunday.

I downloaded the official lollapalooza app for android + iPhone. [I’ll have my personalized schedule at my finger tips + a map, so the likelihood of me getting lost decreases].

besides the bands playing, what am I most excited about you ask?

people watching + fashion, duh.

I found two sites who spotlight lollapalooza’s 2011 fashion

the good {via marie claire}


the not-so-good, but so much more entertaining {via NBC Chicago}

if you’re only going to click one, click the latter. & be jealous of what I’ll be seeing this weekend. [grrreat people watching material].

thank you lauren conrad: 6 essential festival accessories.

I will be taking your advice. [+ sunscreen].


this will be [J] & I enjoying lolla … :)


can you tell I’m a bit excited for the weekend?

on top of it being my first music festival.. many, many of my friends are traveling long distances to attend. so great music and even better company.

c’mon weekend …

happppppppy wednesday.
