An Unconventional Blend…

You know when you hear that two have done a collaboration and you just think to yourself – what?!  Really??  But then you hear it and it may the most brilliant combination of voices ever.  Yup – that is pretty much what you have here with The National and St. Vincent as they come together on the Crooked Fingers cover, Sleep All Summer.  It is beautiful.  I cannot get enough – they have me falling back in love over and over again.

What is one of your favorite collaborations? 

Much love,

Speak Dear…

In honor of today being the day we celebrate Leap Year, I had to share this adorable ring that is perfect for today.   Who doesn’t love another excuse to keep celebrating some love this fine February?!  Or at least take an excuse to do something fun – whether that is go out with some friends, or at least get some BOGO at Caribou – go enjoy the extra day.  And for the lovers, may you live by this lovely quote from Leap Year

Are you doing anything fun today in honor of the extra day? Don’t waste it – it only comes once every four years (eep – this is my last Leap Year in my 20’s…means I better celebrate)!

Much love,

B

Minty Fresh…

With spring so close around the corner, colors are everywhere.  Specifically, the lighter pastels are breaking out.  The one seeming to take the lead and make a little early of an appearance – mint green.  It is everywhere and I am not complaining.  It is fun, flirty, and yet still has a fashion forward chic to it.  Cold and snow melt away, the mint will keep us as cool as we need from here on, thank you…

How do you feel about the mint green?  Do you embrace the pastel shade of the (favored…long story) secondary color?

Much love,

And the Award Goes To…

I love the Oscars so much.  I meant, really, I love award shows.  It is a fabulous time to honor the best of the best from the year – but it is also an excuse for ladies to wear some of the finest pieces of art.  The gowns are stunning – especially on the red carpet of The Academy Awards.  So many women looked gorgeous last night – though there were a few I did not love, we will focus on the ones I did love…

I am not sure who I would give thee best dressed to, but it may have to be Rooney Mara.  I loved her whole look.  The clean-cut bangs, the bright red lips, and such a beautiful silhouette for her dress – such a stunning lady.  Probably also helps that I loved her in The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.  Did you watch the awards?  Who was you favorite?  Or who were your few favorites of the night?

Much love,

We’re Not Writing about Unicorns…

Call me a font snob if you must – but I am just saying, Comic Sans is never acceptable in the workplace.  Sad part is, I have had to change multiple documents at work to no longer be in this awful font.  So, I had to share this as we wrap up the end of our work week.

Have a fabulous weekend, loves!  Any fun plans?  Anyone else hate Comic Sans?

Much love,

B

Five Loves…

Walking down the street with one of your best girlfriends and being totally caught up in the moment, and you both are laughing and saying “Seriously?!!”  Those are some of the best moments.

SImple little tattoos.  I love them.  And am greatly craving another.  I think the time is coming soon…

Fun’s new album Some Nights came out Tuesday and it is amazing.  I love it so much.  Cannot wait until April 13th to see them in concert again live.

Bright neon nails.  Loving the neon craze and would love to have this stunning polish on my nails – at least for a day or two.

I pretty much love everything Olivia Palermo wears – but I am especially loving the royal blue pumps.  I am on the hunt for a pair of my own.

Are you still feeling the love even though Vday has come and gone?  What are you loving?

Much love,

B

Winter White…

Winter is alive and well in Minnesota – have no fear, it has not forgotten us this year.  Though, I do not think the snow will last long because it is already warming up a bit and getting slushy.  The fresh snow is inspiring the winter whites to come out to play though – I almost forgot how much I loved them.  It just would not be a complete winter without some lovely winter whites.

Has winter recently showed up on your doorstep?  Are you a lover of winter white for your style?

Much love,

B

Alone…

This is the first single, Alone, off of Trampled by Turtles new album, which will be released April of this year.  I love them so much – and this song adds to my love.  The lyrics are beautiful and let’s be honest, I am always a sucker for a good banjo and violin combo.  They make me proud to say I am from Duluth.

Are there any albums you are excited to have released soon?

Much love,

B
