Happy Friday and Lovely Earrings!

Happy Friday! I'm so happy to see this week end... it's been a tough week at work! Tonight, I'm going out for a friend's birthday and tomorrow I'm free as a bird! My boyfriend and I have yet to decide what we will do, but I'm hoping the weather will be nice. I'm in desperate need of a tan so I hope we do something outdoors!

Anyway, I was perusing the internet today (in between looooong meetings and silly conference calls) and I came across these fabulous earrings from this Etsy shop:

Red and Aqua Chinoiserie Earrings by RebeccaWeis

I love the chinoiserie style! And a fabulous price too!

Have a wonderful weekend! xoxo

The Lilly fall collection is arriving in stores and everyone is blogging about their fave pieces. I don't want to be left out of the fun! Here are the two dresses I'm currently in love with and can't wait to get!
Love the turquoise color and the koi print on this Stephanie shift!

This Brinkley shirt dress is perfect for work!

What are your fave pieces from the Fall collection?
Hope you're having a great week! xoxo

FUN Desk Accesories and Office Supplies!

I recently moved to a new office and have a brand new big desk. It's nice and modern looking, but very minimalistic... I need some fun office supplies!

Like this adorable Lilly Pulitzer desktop calendar...

And some Lilly Pulitzer picture frames to put pictures of my nearest and dearest in...

Of course no desk is complete without a fun and colorful mouse pad from Caspari (right now I have a plain boring one with my company's logo)...

Some lovely Lilly pens will make taking notes in meeting a little more fun...

I adore this lucite note paper box from Caspari...

And I can put my Lilly pens in this pretty pen/pencil holder from The Container Store!

What office supplies do you use to brighten up your desk at work?
Hope you all had a great weekend!

Various Things

Hi! I hope everyone is having a good week so far! My company moved offices last week so yesterday was my first day at my new office - it's been crazy, but so far I like the new space! Everything is glass and very modern. Now if only my JOB were different! :)

I have an update on my giveaway, which I will be drawing tomorrow! I made a tiny boo-boo and did not realize that the Lilly magnets aren't available to ship till August. I feel so bad about that and ensure the lucky winner will receive them as soon as they are available. BUT, I know how hard it is to wait for things (especially LILLY!) so I will be sending the winner a special surprise Lilly gift to tide them over until the adorable magnets can ship!!

On another note, DC GOP Girl was kind enough to give me the Sugar Doll Blogger award! Thank you! If you haven't checked out her blog, be sure to do so. It is adorable!

The rules of the award say to list ten things that people may not know about me and pass it along to 10 new bloggers that I have recently discovered. Here I go!

1.) I basically have cable so that I can watch the Food Network and Bravo. I seriously could watch those channels all day!

2.) I have a degree in Creative Writing and work in one of the least creative writing fields possible. I'm working on changing that!

3.) I have over 25 pairs of jeans and only wear about 3 of them on a regular basis.

4.) Iced tea with lemon is my favorite drink!

5.) I went to an all-girls high school.

6.) I am a teeny bit OCD. I wash my hands EVERYTIME I get back to my apartment from being outside.

7.) I like cooking in theory, but in practice I could eat out for every meal and not mind one bit.

8.) I used to get so mad at my mom when I was a kid for making me wear a dress to all my friend's birthday parties! I wanted to wear jeans! Now I love dressing up and am so glad she showed me how important it is.

9.) I took French class for a number of years, but now I only remember how to order food. Guess it shows where my priorities are. :)

10.) I just started watching Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami and it's my guilty pleasure!

Now I pass this along to...

Weekend Relaxation and More Pretty Things!

Hurray for the weekend! I had a long and frankly horrible week at work and am savouring every moment of relaxation this weekend. I slept late, took a long shower, watched the Food Network, and enjoyed my bagel with strawberry cream cheese. I'm going to do some housecleaning (I currently have piles of laundry "decorating" my living room) and then maybe walk over to In the Pink (my local Lilly via shop) and Sephora. Then I'm going to meet my boyfriend at the airport - he's been in South Carolina for work this week and I've missed him so much!! From the airport, we'll head to the North End for some Italian food!!

Anyway, enough about me! On to some pretty online shopping finds:

Audrey Earrings in Celadon and Coral by Meg Carter Designs

Pearlized Patent Leather McKim Sandals by Lilly Pulitzer
(love the Shorely Blue color!!)
Elephant Earrings by Fornash
Bondi Beach Bag in Amanda Blue by Roberta Roller Rabbit

Violet Hill Ruffle Dress by Ruche

Ping Pong Set by Henri Bendel

Have a great weekend! Don't forget to enter my Lilly giveaway!

My First Giveaway!

Happy Hump Day!
I signed onto Blogger today and noticed that I have 50 followers!

I did a little happy dance in my head!

Blogging is so much fun for me. I may not have a chance to write consistently, but even so writing once a week makes me super happy. It feels really nice to think that 50 people like hearing what I have to say!

Anyway, I want to host a giveaway since it's so much fun when other bloggers do so. I've had really good luck lately and won a couple of great things. Also, with the week I've had a work, I could certainly use some good karma. :)

And what's more fun to give away than Lilly?!
I'm giving away these adorably Lilly Pulitzer Dress magnets.

If you would like a chance to win these adorable magnets, just do one or all of the following:

1 entry - Leave me a comment and tell me what your current favorite Lilly dress is!
2 entries - Become a follower (or already be one!)
3 entries - Post about the giveaway on your blog and link it back to me.

Be sure to tell me which of these you do! I'll draw a winner on Wednesday, July 21!

Thanks for reading! :)

Lilly Pulitzer Seeing Things Tote that I got for my birthday.
