Currently Craving: Constellation Cuff

I am loving this constellation cuff by Winifred Grace featuring Pegasus. It's simple yet gorgeous, and it would make a great conversation piece (you could always challenge your friends to a game of "name-that-celestial-body"). I normally don't wear gold jewlery, but the simplicity of this piece would fit right into my style. Gorgeous!

Currently Listening

I don't know how many people have discovered Songza yet, but this site is amazing! Although similar to Pandora and 8tracks, Songza features a unique "music conceirge" that finds the perfect playlist for you based on the time of day, what you're doing, your mood, and your genre preference. Plus, no audio ads!

Nothing gets me through the work morning like familiar and laid-back tunes I can hum along to; cue the Female Indie Pop Singers playlist. It features some of my favorites like Kate Nash, Marina and the Diamonds, and Florence and the Machine, but it has plenty of new stuff I haven't heard yet to spice things up. Perfect!

If you haven't already you should definitely check out this site. They even have awesome workout playlists that you can bring with you via their smart phone app. I'm personally a fan of the Mambo workout selections :) Hope you enjoy!

Currently Craving: Mint

Right now I'm daydreaming of ditching my dark winter wear and filling my wardrobe with bright pieces once more. Spring cannot come soon enough for this girl! In hopes of putting me a sunshine state of mind, I've collected some of my current favorites in my all time favorite pastel: mint!

Must Haves: Beach!

I know, this isn't fair, it’s 30 degrees out and I’m taunting you with thoughts of sunshine and frozen margaritas Well it’s about to get worse, in 16 days I’ll be hopping on a plane and saying so long to the cold and hello to a week long vacation in the Dominican Republic! I decided to take this opportunity to update my beach essentials and thought I would give you a peek at what I’m currently craving, enjoy!

1 I love a good tote, and I especially love this crocheted straw tote. It would be perfect for beach trip or just a trip to the market! // 2 I realize this is a little vain, but my skin is criminally pale even on the best of days, let alone in the middle of winter. I like to add a couple drops of liquid bronzer to my sunscreen to give myself a nice glow, without exposing my ginger skin. // 3 I've been on the hunt for a maxi dress since last summer, and I think my search may finally be over. The simple shape mixed with the fun details make me think this dress would go well from day to night, and it won't even break the bank, score! // 4 Speaking of fair skin, a big floppy hat is absolutely essential for the beach. I have a major crush on this navy option. // 5 I bought a pair of these J. Crew Chino shorts on sale last year and ended up going back for three more pairs! I love the lightweight feel of them and there are so many fun colors to choose from. // 6 BOOKS, no beach trip would be complete without them. I'm always reading more than one book at a time, so I like to mix up the genres. I plan on bringing How to Be a Woman by the hilarious Caitlin Moran and Moloka'i by Alan Brennert. // 7  I'm loving this simple and colorful cover-up. I think this might be just the thing to break me of my bad habit of just wearing soccer shorts and pinnie over my suit, so lady like. // 8 And finally, this beautiful, retro-inspired bikini. I mean there are flamingos on it, what's not to love?!

I’m really trying to stop myself from buying everything I've found right this instant; that maxi dress may or may not have been hanging out in my shopping cart for the past week…who am I kidding, It’s time to take that bad boy to check-out!
