The Weekender: Neon Wedges

This week I chose these tropical neon wedges from H&M. I have wandered in a few times, had them in my hand and panicked right before going up to the register because I could not figure out what to wear with them.  I think my favorite so for is this top one. Although, I’m partial to mini dresses and sassy legs. Tip: If you haven’t tried Benefit’s Bathina, you should! I bought my mom some in high school and ended up stealing it back. One swipe along your shin makes your legs look longer and leaner. It’s pretty much a summer staple.

The Weekender: Chambray Button Up Shirt

I have this amazing chambray button up I bought last summer and it has become a wardrobe staple. Since sunshine isn’t too far away, I can’t stop thinking about all the pairing possibilities. I do know, I am one click away from being the proud owner of those red Nicole Miller shorts.

So close, yet so far….

I have the summer itch.

It’s about that time. All I can think about it warm weather and cool ocean water. My summer seems to be pretty full already, but I know I can fit some good times in. All I need to hope for is some good weather in the city and I’ll be golden. Here is a small sampling of ideas I’m tossing around.

I don’t think you know how excited I am about Michonne finally joining the group in The Walking Dead!

She is such a badass


The Perfect Coffee Station

I posted last week about focusing my home and really asking myself what would make my life easier when it comes to organizing. So I asked myself a few questions about how I use my kitchen.

What function do I use my kitchen for? Easy. Coffee.

I cook, but not really. Coffee is the real focus in my house.

So, I decided to set myself up a little coffee station.

I stored both my caffeinated and decaffeinated beans in glass canisters, along with the coffee filters. The shorter one I got at Ikea years ago and the round canisters I got at Cost Plus, there is a similar one at Target but it doesn’t have the rubber seal thing that keeps the beans fresh. Now, everything is a lot easier to get to, which in the morning is important. I don’t have to fuss with drawers or cabinets, it’s all there and is always clean because there is no other option. I love it!

Second question.

What do I see as one of the biggest problems in my kitchen?

The clutter! Mostly due to the insane amount of coffee cups that pile up. I just counted, I have 23 coffee mugs, not a single one of them is clean. So I’m nixing all the mugs and buying a new set of six (and maybe keeping one or two mugs for sentimental reasons). That way I get rid of the clunky mis-matched look of the hand me down mugs and will have a limited amount to clutter.
