Take me away {Maldives}

Craving sunshine, warmth & golden skin. Daydreaming of walking along these planks to relax on this little island with a good book in hand.  Where would you like to vacation?

Emerald {spring color}

Loving vibrant colors for spring {now if the weather would warm up we could wear our spring gear}!  If you are looking for a bold color statement this dress is perfect. Want something a bit smaller but will still provide you with a great pop of color then these earrings will do just that. I am anxious to start wearing bright beautiful colorful spring outfits.

Havaianas x Missoni

Havaianas have been a long time favorite flip flop of mine. They last forever, give the perfect amount of comfort for strolling the sand or running errands, and they come in a plethora of colors. Mine have many beaches around the world & have lasted for over 10 years... the older they get the more comfortable they are {in my opinion}. When I learned about this collab I was so excited! The colors are beautiful. They will be available this summer at havaianas.

It has been raining non-stop. I love lounging around the cozy warm house listening to the rain fall on the rooftop. Today I am venturing out into the wet. Trying to enjoy the rain {hopefully it is the last of it} before spring is here.

Leather Beauty {Pencey}

Pretty sure this beautiful punched leather jacket needs to be a part of my wardrobe. I can only imagine how smooth this jacket must feel & how adorable it would be with all my vintage maxi skirts.

Cruisin around {Republic Bike}

How fun are these bikes? I knew hubby & I each needed one when I saw the email from CB2. The vibrant yellow tires, the clean lines, the deep red stitched grips, the red bell & the basket {perfect for Thor to chill in}... I can already picture us cruising around the park & peddling to yogurtland on warm summer evenings. Now if I only I was not unemployed & saving money for our adoption & could spend an extra $1000 to cruise around town in style.

Spotted this cute tee over at Tory Burch. Support the cause for Japan for $29.00. The Tory Burch site states...
We ♥ Japan. 100% of the net proceeds of every Japan Relief T-shirt sold through September 15, 2011, will go to the American Red Cross to benefit the Japan earthquake and Pacific tsunami relief efforts.

Education {our adoption}

I am so thrilled our adoption agency has asked us to be the education coordinators for the Orange County division of the agency. This will give us the opportunity to plan all the meetings {in order to adopt through the agency each couple needs to reach a designated amount of hours through education, books, movies, etc.} we will be in charge of all the topics to be discussed. I am super excited they have asked us to do this! There are so many questions I have {and everyone I talk to about adoption asks so many questions too} I will now be more informed so I can educate myself & others on the topic.

Sailor Stripes {shorts}

These shorts are the perfect match {in a mix-matched way} to my new suits I picked up in NYC. I would wear them to the beach & around town. My personal fav is the little gold buttons... adorable. Now if only my legs looked that sexy & slim.

SUGAR Lips {fresh}

This little tube is one of my favorite lip products. Unlike most lip products it does not have a strong flavor, its subtle & smooth {not overly creamy or sticky}. It always leaves my lips feeling refreshed! It also has SPF 15 to help keep your lips from burning up. You can find it at Sephora or fresh.

Prayers {for Japan}

{image via me}

I lounged in bed in disbelief last night as I watched the absolute devastation overcome Japan. I was so worried for all my friends & co-workers who live in Japan {thankfully they have emailed me & are safe}. I am terrified for the day the big quake hits California I am not prepared. I feel extremely fortunate to believe in God and understand he has a plan for me {and each of us} with out this knowledge I would not be able to get through each day. Japan is in my prayers.
I took this image on the tram from the airport to the little port where I caught a ferry. You can see how pretty the land is and how much water surrounds the island.

Pardon my absence since my return from NYC{post to come soon about the trip}. I have been busy adjusting to my new life and LOVING every moment of freedom. The weather has been incredible all week {82 degrees} so I have been spending lots of time in the sun in my new suits I picked up in NYC. Hope you are all enjoying this lovely weather too.

The END {of my sneaker career}

I have so many thoughts & emotions pulsating through me today. I still can not believe I actually resigned. I am so eager to see what the future holds for me & what will transpire… change is good & it keeps my life fresh. This photo was taken on my 1st day of work 3 years ago (well one month shy of 3 years) I should have known that day when I was walked over to my desk & saw piles and piles, boxes and boxes and shoes galore from floor to 6 feet high in my new working space to run!!! But being the optimist that I am I tried, persevered, gave my energy, talent, creativity, ideas & passion to the brand. After much thought & hours of stress and deliberation I came to realization I needed to move forward in my personal life. So here I am today ready for the future & all the joy, stress, challenge, and unknowns that lay ahead…
