The Weekend Awaits.

I am sooooooooooooo ready for this weekend. How ready? Soooooo ready. I have oodles to do to get my headbands ready for listing, need to get my car washed (will it stay sunny??), need to catch up on sleep and time with friends. These are things I've fallen in LOVE with this week!!!
CB2's Keep Calm and Carry On Rug! I have a print in my bedroom I got a while back because I love the history behind this phrase. CB2 writes a blurb on it in the description.
For obvious reasons (ahem, obsession with dandelions), the dandelion dinnerware at CB2 continues to be stalked by moi.
Spotted on my friend Sara's tweet, the hidden wedge Eliotte boot.
Off of DailyCandy this week, this delicious raglan tee from T Los Angeles!

And just in time for Spring, Chanel's polish in softer shades. This might make me take a step away from the vamp polish I usually wear!

What's in a song..

Oh, let's get rich and buy our parents homes in the South of France
let's get rich and buy everybody nice sweaters
and teach them how to dance
let's get rich and build our house on a mountain
making everybody look like ants
from way up there, you and I, you and I.

Sigh, I love Ingrid Michaelson. This would be a good week to escape to a house on a mountain top..

Cute girl.

Bah! So cute! I stopped and gasped and immediately decided I wanted to be this girl's friend. And now I miss having that short cropped haircut.

How Tuesday: How to rebrand yourself.

So, my cousin Julie and I have been pouring over my branding, trying to get it just right-the font, the colors, the images, etc. We were branding my etsy shop for February launch and just not getting it RIGHT. Then the light bulb flicked on. I was perusing an etsy shop for labels for my headbands and found one with a dandelion on it. It hit me! Hel-lo! Make it all cohesive!

Here are the steps:

1. Seek help of a professional---that would be my cousin.

2. Pick your colors & theme---my favorite inspiration color boards come from Snippet and Ink and I just happen to be obsessed with the bottle glass & black board:

3. Pick an image. As you may have noticed from my header, my favorite image is the dandelion. It's been almost a mantra symbol for me for years and I chose it when re-vamping my blog so that it left the playing field open for me to blog about anything! We thought..wait...why not use it for my etsy shop too???

4. Pull it all together. We are crazy obsessive with cohesiveness (is that a word??) so everything had to change. My blog header changed, my etsy header changed, the colors were matched to the inspiration board, etc etc etc..we've come up with the etsy header as well, which I'll only allow you to see a SNEAK peak of it! Can't give away ALL my secrets!!

5. Pray everyone likes it! So, do you?? I am so freaking excited to have this problem solved and to have it feel right and make sense! Hurray!!!

psssst-confession- I was going to do a how Tuesday about something entirely different but when I woke up this morning I completely forgot what that idea was...please forgive me and hope I remember by next week :)

Three lovelies.

They look fantastic in their apricot and forest green. It's kind of ridiculous how perfect their accent pieces are...
