Perhaps its that Valentine’s day is just around the corner and I’m in a mood for hearts? Or perhaps it’s the idea of mixing a drink off that bar cart that appeals to me? Either way, I’m feeling this little nook today. I love the bright red and pink hues and all of the bold pattern — it’s loud in the very best way.

My instagram addiction merged with my paper addiction after I found out about printstagram. The site makes mini prints of your instagram pictures that look like small Polaroids, and you can get a set of 48 for just $12. My mind is buzzing with ideas for what to do with them now that they’ve arrived!
It’s been a long time since I’ve posted some room pictures on this site; sometimes I forget that collecting interior inspiration was how my blog got its start. So I’m getting back to my roots today to share a gorgeous kitchen from Country Living. Open shelves styled with white dishware gets me every time — I love how functional this kitchen looks while still evoking such style. What do you think, are you into open shelving in the kitchen?

Can you tell the difference between these two shoes? The first pair is from Kate Spade, and I was obsessed with them last Summer — but couldn’t hit ‘add to cart’ because they were a little out of my budget, and then promptly sold out! The second pair? Those are from Old Navy and cost $22. All I can say is… ‘add to cart’.
There is nothing more satisfying to me than finding a cute piece of clothing for a major steal. And when I get a great score like this, I have to share! I found myself in Kohl’s this weekend, turning up my nose at that idea that I could find anything cute in there — but out of the corner of my eye I was drawn to polka dots and ended up snagging an adorable silky swing tank for just $20. I liked it so much I already wore it to brunch this morning. And, I’ll admit when I’m wrong — there are cute things at Kohl’s!

Over the holiday weekend one of my friends hosted a pasta-making get together. I’ve never made fresh pasta before — it seemed way too complicated for me — but I was happily surprised to see it wasn’t too difficult at all! I helped with the dough making process, but my expertise was really in the eating portion of the night. I could have had a dozen servings, it was so delicious!
I hinted to a little a surprise in my last post, and now I’m ready to share my big news! The week before Christmas my boyfriend and I took a quick getaway to Quebec City for some relaxing before the holidays. And on the first night we arrived he proposed in the snow in front of our hotel as we were walking to dinner! It was the perfect setting for an amazing surprise. The best part was that we’ve been able to spend the last week celebrating with friends and family. I’m already scheming away with color palettes and crafty ideas, so expect to see a little bit of wedding chatter on the blog in 2012!
