After 10% of my company was let go this week, I’ve been just a bit stressed to say the least. Here are some of the things that are getting me through these tough times (and putting a smile on my face).
-In college, there was a girl who would leave horrendously angry comments on the fridge addressed to those who ate her food. She totally should have bought these (via Layers of Meaning).
-If you’ve ever been through a break-up, the lyrics to this song will make you melt.
-Who needs chocolates and flowers when you can have these?
-After spending an inexcusable amount of time here, I’ve officially sworn off buying popcorn at the movies and drinking Jack in the Box’s Oreo shakes on a regular basis.
-Isn’t this just about the sleekest menswear watch you’ve seen?
-This makes me think that perhaps less isn’t always more.
-I’m embarrassed that this made me laugh out loud.
I hope you all have lovely weekends!

Ever since I read about how to dress like a French woman on Joanna’s blog, I’ve been accumulating striped shirts like it’s nobody’s business. The nautical vibe of stripes transports me to a warmer frame of mind instantaneously, which is perfect since it’s supposed to rain for the next four days straight. I’m already envisioning lots of movies, board games and take-out this weekend.

Well, that and the bucket loads of candy I typically consume in February. But in colors like ‘Milkshake Pink’ and ‘Party Pink,’ how can you not find a shade that’s perfect for you?

How sweet are these photographs by Rodney Smith? With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I couldn’t help but swoon over these darling images of vintage clothes, cute cars and unbelievably romantic boys.
