Weekend Snapshots (aka instagrams)

June 20, 2011

Filed Under : MY LIFE

My new camera battery charger is en route from China so I’m still camera-less and it’s all very depressing.  Until it arrives, I will (of course) still be using my instagram app heavily.  I mean, why not?  It probably takes better photos than my regular camera anyways!

So I hope everyone had a great weekend.  I celebrated Father’s Day with my father, ate at True Food Kitchen (will show you pictures soon), did a lot of shopping, watched amazingly cheesy TV shows with my friends, and spent lots of time with my family.  Here are a few snapshots:

[french pressing is my favorite part of the weekend, especially with nostalgic Vancouver mugs]


[the peonies at Trader Joe’s right now are so beautiful, it’s out of control]

[we picked up this industrial stool at CB2‘s floor sample sale on Friday]

[this is my favorite face in the whole world]

Something Orange

Kate Spade essex small scout

I love the idea of pairing a super simple outfit, like a striped shirt and flared jeans, with an unexpected twist, like a bright orange handbag.  A little pop of color can completely change an outfit’s level of excitement.  And let me tell you, an orange Kate Spade cross-body = lots o’ excitement.

Besides it’s bright/exciting factor, this Kate Spade also has a classic shape and style.  You know what that means?  I’m putting it in my shopping cart.  The rule is: you’re allowed to buy any and all items that are considered classic and timeless with a unique twist.  Right?  Or am I making that rule up to make myself feel better?  Whoopsies.
