Picture Perfect

This past week has been pretty fantastic as I look back at it via my Instagram photos. Here's some of my happiness...

Today I need a post with happy pictures because this week is already off to a rough start. My work office moved and while I love the location (we're now on Hollywood Blvd.) I hate my seat. I've been at my company for three years and longer than anyone else in my department, yet
I now have THE WORST seat in the office.I should have a window seat but I don't. And what's worse? EVERYONE can see my screen. That means it's gonna be a whole lot harder to blog at work :(

{Blog Swap - Wear that Room}

Happy Friday everyone! It's Lindsay from {lastyearoftwentysomething} and I'm so excited to share my Friday's Fancies with you! I have been dying over everything black and gold on {pinterest} recently...This includes decor and fashion...So, what better way to express my love for the color combo then to do a "Wear that Space" post?!

Here are some of the decor images I have been swooning over...




The colors are so classic and give off a vibe of elegance together...it reminds me of a designer that is classic and timeless...

Happy Weekend! :)

From Beautiful Ben to Beegee Brother

I love me some Ben Affleck. I even like him with Jen and think the girls are super cute. Anyone else hoping baby #3 is a boy? Anyways...look at this face - that's one attractive man.

The above picture is how I'm sure we'd all like to think of our main man. Not so much as of late. Despite my love for Ben, I gotta say that I cannot get on board with his new 'do. I get that it's for a movie. It's just hair and it'll (hopefully) be tamer soon enough. But in the meantime, it's killin' his looks. Am I right?

Let's look at the current state of Mr. Affleck, taking an evolutionary journey of hair over the past few months:

OK it's gray. Bound to happen. Maybe he'll turn into a stone fox?

Wait, what?! Your name is B-E-N, not Justin.

You're married to Jennifer, not her gay stylist!

This is full-blown Beegee hair.

That nasty excuse for hair has bred and is not taking over his face as well.

I miss hot Ben. The one that captivated the world with his handsome boyish Boston looks! He turns 40 this year, that's not that old. 

On a side note, tomorrow i am exchanging blogs with Lindsay from Last Year of Twenty Something...! Be sure to stop by and check out her post and visit her blog to see mine.

Time to Make a Decision

Pun intended ;)

Last week I got a lot of positive feedback on my watch post. You all loved the watch/chunky bracelet look and encouraged me to replicate it. Now I need your help - I have narrowed it down to two Michael Kors watches and I want to know which one I should select.

The styles are the same, except one is tortoise and the other silver. I think I like the tortoise better, BUT the silver is more timeless.

Please let me know which one you like better! It'll help me make my decision.

Outfit Inspiration

Today's theme, courtesy of Friday's Fancies is outfit inspiration. Here are some amazingly stylish images I found on Pinterest!

Who isn't obsessed with Pinterest? I think we can all admit that we've spent countless hours pinning recipes, home decor, and fashion finds. I have made crafts and meals thanks to some of my pins, but I have yet to replicate an outfit I've found. Have you recreate any Pinterest looks?

Watch It

I love the trend of a bulky wrist. Putting on a watch and piling up bracelets around it. It's busy, but it works. A bunch of my Instragram friends have been rockin' this trend and documenting it via the photo sharing site and it makes me want to give it a go. For some reason once I stack up the arm candy on my wrist I feel awkward. Like it's too much. Maybe I just need to get used to it. Here is some inspiration to help me get my fashion courage...

Are you into this trend?
