Sweden: I Like the Nightlife Baby.

Last Friday in Sweden Cassie and I...
made dinner for the house
played drinking games
wore matching hipster glasses and lipstick
and ended the evening dancing
before wearing matching nightgowns
and laughing while snuggling into the wee hours.

I love her and miss her already.

home made Mexican food YES.

On Fire For You.

Ok loves, more Sweden and Copenhagen pictures tomorrow...but for now this lady is tired from a day of traveling and needs to prepare to go back to her real job tomorrow. So I will leave you with these gorgeous red heads that have been inspring me for a few weeks, all via Mr. Newton and the Sartorialist.
LOVE these ladies.

This is dedicated to my ginger that I miss terribly back home too. Look how hot you are!

Oh, Grace Kelly

Thank you Huffington Post for reminding me to add "Grace Kelly" to my list of names for a future child in hopes that she will turn out even a little bit as lovely as this beaut.

Pretty Things: Stanley Chow

Oh Stanley, your prints are AHmazing AND cheap...I Died.

Work It.

Amongst another freak out regarding "What the hell am I going to do when I move back to Socal?!" I decided to start getting this little blog of mine more loved by the world if possible. I mean, this is like my other part time job...and I LOVE it, so what if it really WAS my part time job? Yeah, I know! So exciting!

So I started writing for Hub Pages as a way to try and get me and Black and Lashes out there more, I just put up my first article! Aren't we proud?

If you have any more ideas of how to become a "professional blogger" please send them my way. 

It really is all for you.

And now I really should get back to lesson planning for my "real" job...aren't we supposed to be on vacation though?

Sweden Day 4

I worked from home today because it was a high of 23 degrees out (yeah, too cold for me) and then this evening when Cassie got home we went shopping together, got pizza for dinner, and now we're home catching up on Glee and snuggling.

From Sweden with love,


cookie jars

ahaha we made Cassies boyfriend pose too

Ended up buying this on a post card because I just loved it so

 Cassie bought me this PRECIOUS elephant for my collection from around the world. 


New Spring H&M Line...

Images from the new spring H&M line can be found here although I am pretty sure a lot of it has already hit the stores here in Europe since it all looks rather familiar. Here are a few of my favorites, but overall I still haven't decided if its my style or not. The color scheme and shapes scream 70's hippy...which just isn't really me.

Please note everyone will be wearing these with socks. I know, odd but true. See ANYTHING regarding the recent fashion weeks. Socks and chunky sandals are happening. 

I would like to LIVE in this.

And then dance in this.



Love in Slow Motion

Perhaps the most beautiful Love at First Sight video I have ever seen.


Nuit Blanche from Spy Films on Vimeo.

PS I like to think this is me and PAG...just replace the romantic Parisian street with...a postal annex.

Sweden Day 3: Design Overload.

Oh Sweden, your endless patterns and design SLAY me.

Yesterday after another lovely vegetarian lunch with Cassies work friends, I ventured to a cute cafe with wifi that we went to the other day where you can make your own tea and they give you blankets inside. On the way anywhere here in Sweden, I quickly will start to not be able to feel my face and pop into stores on the way to my destination to escape the cold. THIS ONE BLEW MY MIND.

It was like Fred Flare home meets the Urban Outfitters home section meets Ikea and I died in the process.

I looked like a crazy person walking around taking the few pictures I did at this random store, but I am trying to embrace the tourist and blogger that I am and kept telling myself it was all for you.

be inspired.

From Sweden with love,



Tea serving tray.

Coolest toilet paper of your life.
