What She Pinnin’?

What She Pinnin
Welcome to another segment where I show you my top pins for the week! And the pinobsession gets deeper….

1. I have WAAAAAY too many good DIY’s to try like this embroidered picture courtesy of A Beautiful Mess. 2. I’m a new fan of this Finnish label Samuji. This skirt is swoon worthy, but really, so is their entire website. So simple, whimsical, and colorful. 3. This is probably the best banana bread recipe I have ever tried. I made this twice now and me and the mister almost ate the whole pan! 4. This bright neon yellow is probably one of my favorite nail colors. A huge contrast from my usual pastel tips, but such a fun and easy way to make your day a little brighter.

The Lobby Boy.

As soon as I heard it hit the west side of the states, I ran to the Kabuki Theater to watch The Grand Budapest Hotel.

This is, without a trace of doubt, my favorite film of 2014.grand-budapest-hotel GHB_6852 20130121.CR2 www.indiewire

As always, the film was brilliantly entertaining and gorgeous. It got me thinking I need to spring for this Lobby Boy cap courtesy of Wes Anderson Etsy Shopil_570xN.577908411_hg36

If you haven’e seen it yet, drop everything you’re doing and GO!

Resolution #3

My third resolution: put love into everything I do.

What the work really needs is more love and less paperwork.  — Pearl Bailey

When you love your work, it shows. Filling that product or service with your heart and soul builds stronger and better relationships from the consumer to the CEO.

Loving where you work, your career, and living a passionate life is possible. I never would have thought I could make a living writing and shopping, but yet here I am! Since landing my dream job, my confidence has soared, my productivity has sky rocketed, and my work ethic has greatly improved. Having a love affair with my work builds trust and respect not just with my customers, but within my work place as well.

This is by no means a lucky streak. I worked my butt off before I found the right fit. This year, resolute to do what you love and love what you do. Work hard, hit the pavement, and see your efforts pay off too.

Can you keep a secret?

This month, The Method Makers want to let you in on a little secret: their first ever Secret Show! If you want to check out some amazing work produced by talented bay area artists, sign up to reserve your spot ASAP! Space is limited, so take a couple of seconds to get connected with The Method Makers. The location and time will not be released until the day of the show, so sign up to stay in the loop!

So, assuming you’re in San Francisco and you’re psyched about this show, you’re probably wondering what the heck you should wear! Guess what? I did all the work for you! I go to quite a few shows every month what with being the arm candy to one pretty amazing artsy fella. When we go to galleries, I like to keep my look clean and mod with a little edge. Rocking basics with a little something extra makes you look like a work of art! Check out these very open gallery pieces for under $100.

Peepin’ the Street

finally got to catch up on all of my favorite blogs! Realizing I hadn’t posted a PtS in quite some time, I decided to show you a few of my favorite looks from Stockholm Street Style. I’m loving the Manoush dress with those gold heels!318034 317844 316551 316470 316468 315562Images courtesy of Carolines Mode.
