Can't Always Get What You Want

So during my Thursday morning online shopping spree, I stumbled across a brand that I am dying for. The collection is named Roxy Heart and it is affiliated with Roxy. I usually never shop at Roxy but I did buy some sandals from them that Cynthia Rowley designed. Anyways, I flipped through the lookbook and was literally ready to buy every piece in the collection. As I got ready to pull out my credit card I realized that it is only available in Europe. I can't stop looking at the website and literally can't stop thinking about this dress. I'm still depressed that I am not studying abroad in Italy. Seriously, Europe has better food, and sites. Zara and Mango are insanely better there, and now they have this to rub in my face. So if anyone wants to send me that dress, I would love you forever.

Out with the Cold and In with the New

Growing up in the Midwest means you get the best of all seasons....NOT! I honestly spend Fall and Winter dreaming of Spring and Summer. Now that warm weather has finally reached Chicago, I spent my Sunday night clearing all my winter clothes out of my closet. Once, I got everything organized I realized that I had one semi not stuffed to the max drawer. So of course, this got me thinking that I need to get some new things to spice up my wardrobe. Here is a few things I have been eyeing.

These shoes can instantly bring a pop of color to anything you are wearing.

Elizabeth and James Pleated Shorts
I have always been a huge fan of shorts. These can be worn casually or you can dress them up a bit.

Chloe Tilia Sunglasses
I saw these on Hilary Duff in People Style Watch and knew that I had to have them.

Still Single...

On Friday night my friends and I celebrated my sorority sister's 24th birthday. After getting some drinks at a swanky restaurant, we then headed on over to one of our favorite bars. After tossing back a few drinks (Blueberry Stoli, Water w/ a lemon) we started dancing. Now, I am known for always being the single friend. I'm not saying that I don't have a certain guy at different times but I haven't been "very" serious with anyone for years. Anyways, with that being said my one friend decided to channel her inner Patti Stanger (Millionare Matchmaker). At first, my friend and I were honestly going to kill her. I am pretty sure that she approached a married man, and every guy that was standing with their girlfriend. When I finally ditched her, I then headed to the bathroom and met the cutest guy ever :)
Anyways, this got me thinking what do I look for in a guy? (Calling Bradley Cooper)

1. Has his own life (I dislike clingy and dislike a guy who doesn't have his own friends or hobbies)
2. Loves laughing/making me laugh and most importantly being social (I like the guy who loves the center attention, although I know that most would find that obnoxious)
3. Ambitious in all aspects of life
4. Someone who is able to plan things and actually have an opinion
5. Over 5'8" (Yes, I know this is shallow but I am 5'8" and love heels)
What are you looking for?? Or what have you found?

Couldn't Pay Me

For the past couple years I have been loving the revival of the headband (Thank You Gossip Girl) but when Marc Jacobs for LV went all rabbit on us, I was appalled. He had models like Jessica Stam prancing down the runway wearing Bunny Ears. I wasn't sure if these Bunny Ears would ever become mainstream and become the new "Must Have" item. All I know is that you couldn't pay me to wear them out. I'm all for trying bows, feathers but morphing into a rabbit just isn't my thing. I did a little research to see if I can purchase my own pair for the fraction of the Louis Vuitton price tag. I found that Top Shop offers a Bunny Ear Headband for $39.99.

30 Birthday Candles

I can't believe that tonight I am going out to celebrate my brothers birthday. With him turning 30 it really got me thinking of all the things that I would like to accomplish before I turn the big 3-0. As I started making a list, I remembered an article that a friend emailed me a few months ago. The article was written in 1997 for Glamour Magazine and stated all the things you should have and should know by the time you are 30.

After rereading the article I decided that I would leave some of her "To Do's" on my list but I would also omit and add some others.

When I'm 30, I should have...

1. A decent savings account that allows me to splurge from time to time. (My Splurge)

2. A boyfriend that loves my friends, my family, my flaws, and allows me to be myself. Also, a boyfriend that loves to clean and cook would be an extra perk.

3. The ability to be able to throw a dinner party on my own. This meaning that I actually am cooking the entire thing, no takeout.

4. How to quit a job, break up with a man, and confront a friend without ruining a friendship. This one is stolen from the Glamour article but just thinking about confrontation gets me uncomfortable.

5. To own my own place. I hope that in the next seven years I don't continue to throw money away on rent but instead am able to build equity and buy my own place.

6. I hope the last time that I really traveled wasn't my Junior year of college.

Check out the article and let me know your thoughts.

On the Rocks and Hold the Salt

It is a little bit after 11 pm and I decided that tonight I am finally going to start my own blog. This is something that I have been thinking about doing for quite sometime. Ok, I Lie.

Actually the idea came to me when I was having a few margarita's with my girlfriends. We all hadn't seen each other for a couple of months, so when you get us all together and then add tequila into the mix the stories get even better and blurrier. Anyways, the idea was brought up when I was telling some story and at the end my friends said that I should think about writing a blog. They said the would love to hear my stories and thoughts daily. So after the hangover from the margs wore off I decided to finally start writing one...about 2 months later.

I can honestly say that I read just about anyone and every ones blogs and I find myself getting sucked in their world. My goal for this blog is to have a little bit of something for every individual. I hope that my blog feels accessible to all and is a fun environment.
