Birthday "Rap"- Up

24 years young (with the help of anti-aging cream)

This weekend was nothing short of a success.  I ate more than any human should...

laughed a lot, spent much needed time with my sweet family, 

and received lots of bday love including this doozie...

Hopefully the video works but if not, let me explain.  In college, for each others bday we would all gather around and sing the birthday rap no matter where we were.  Thankfully this year was no different, and I was pleasantly surprised when I saw this little number appear on my facebook wall.  Nicki Minaj, step aside...

Now its back to reality...

Happy Hump Day!

Day 3 of Kanukkah and half a work week down... now there is something to celebrate!  More favorite products/items...

I use this now and am obsessed. Its amazing how much better my hair feels after.  For anyone who over processes, overheats, and under appreciates their hair...this is for you.

Along with the beloved bar cart, this is another item i am desperately attempting to find

And last but not least....this amazing outfit

...minus the dog because Finn hasn't been fixed and due to his recent behavior I am trying to avoid the "you're a grandma" call from our neighbors

OH, and spell check is trying to tell me Kanukkah isnt a real word. They have some nerve...

Missoni for Target

I am going to apologize in advance for the amount of pictures but I am obsessed!  After being so disappointed with the Calypso St. Barth's line at Target I have to say that they have outdone themselves with this collection.  Anyone else going to be standing out front of Target when they open on September 13th??

Art I Can Handle

While I pretend I am many things, an artist is not one of them.  This however looks like something I could definitely do....

Don't get me wrong, I have and always will be a summer person.  Even growing up in Ohio and choosing to go to school in the mountains of North Carolina, I have never wavered on my love for sunshine and heat....except for this summer.  Between my hair and sweat glands, the almost 100 degree temperatures have been a little much.  My anticipating for fall weather is increasing....
