the classics

i love this. 3.08 carat yellow sapphire engagement ring in white gold from, it's just engagement perfection.

just say NO to Fado!

Do not do it looks inviting, it looks fun, it's definitely crowded but it just stinks.....literally smelly. last night i spent one hour too many at Fado in center city and ewww ewww ewww. if you ever want to go somewhere where you are the oldest person there, not ordering SoCo shots and wearing "slogan" tee-shirts, this is the perfect place for you. as for me. i'm now an official bar snot, no more pubs for this lady.

Who would've thought an indulgent sunday trip to my local cheese steak eatery would result in a celebrity spotting? ha. not this gal. 2 sundays ago i was casually paging through the new west elm catalogue, drooling over bedding with a gf, waiting in the seemly never-ending line at jim's steaks when low and behold....a swarm of teenage girls appeared! and who were they swarming you ask? luke wilson, in the flesh, in front of me. OMG. and i never noticed until the teenagers arrived.

he was taller then i envisioned, and not as well dressed as i hoped. in fact he looked just like us, like he rolled out of bed, found a sweater, and headed out for a cheese steak.

i must say he signed autographs, took pictures, and did not cut the line.

however, the plot thickens.....last friday evening during my evening juant out on the town, i began my journey towards rittenhouse iso sangria....i got an encounter with a full-out movie set on 16th and spruce, and was quickly escorted through the set to the next street.

the question is, is luke wilson living in my neighborhood?

god i hope so....

here's to bumping into luke at my local coffee shop!

dear internet....

Like most people, my inbox is continously full of shopping related offers; free ship this, 20% off is one supposed to help themselves? well i can attest it takes some seriously will power to say no to all those final sale reductions and free shipping incentives....the question is, "what is the lesser of the two evils; labelling all offers as spam and receiving no shopping offers OR viewing these incentives and having to fight the urge to purchase?" im just not sure...

gay straight taken bi-curious, bi or whatever.......

in the world of singles, the line between gay and straight has become significantly blurred. as each weekend passes i find myself more and more confused about who is what? and seriously i think the majority of people, particularly men don't even realize how not straight they really are....i mean who are they fooling. thus, im labelling this new trends towards mass- spread sexual confusion as G/S....i label these undetectable orientation nonapparent enigmas as the gay/straighs...the G/S...they're a little bit of both, so stay away unless you're up for the challenge.

mellow yellow

For awhile now, I've been on the hunt for new bedding. I'm a bit of a neutrals girl, but I really want to introduce a color into my bedroom. The popularity of yellow this season has really appealed to me, so I've decided to choose bedding in shades of yellow, white, and gray; primarily pattern on pattern! Below are some of the linen/ pillow choices I'm considering, none of which are over $40. Pieces from Ikea, cb2, and West Elm...

red is the color of all desire

kate spade new canaan red bag.....i cannot resist a red bag, or for that matter, a white one either....

simply understated

some of this season's trends are large and in-your-face colorful; however, for me i prefer understated accents in lieu of this seasons bold trends. this quartz necklace from BR is a perfect example of a chic yet simplistic accessory. available at for $45.
