Weekly What I'm Into!

1. 13 Cooking Hacks. These are such simple and amazing ideas. I want to do them all. Especially the salt shaker idea. Why had I not thought of that earlier?!

2. Katy Perry's tour started this week and it looks A-MAZ-ING. These 9 outfit changes are incredible, and I'm so jealous that I don't get to play dress up like that every night. I might start parading around the house in major neon sequins from now on.  

3. One Eyed Cats of Instagram. We just took in a stray kitten, with a wonky left eye, so when this gem popped up on Buzzfeed I felt overly attached to the content. How cute are they?!

4. We all know I am Alex Preston OBSESSED. I really think he is going to take the crown. I don't care what the judges say. He is the real deal. When he performed Yellow  on wednesday, I about changed my first dance song. Be still my heart.

5. Last but 100000% not least. Diane Keaton was on Dr. Oz this week and I just happened to have the TV on in the house. Thank Goodness I did because I think this quote of her defining what beauty is to her, is life changing. I will be buying her book when I am in the states next week. I typed the quote out for you, but skip to 5 minutes into this video and watch her say it yourself.  In fact, the entire interview is the most beautiful and honest interview I have seen in a long time. You won't regret it. It gives me chills every time."I think beauty is honestly, it’s a feeling to me. I hate the fact that people put beauty on a pedestal and try to remove it from the ordinary experience of life. But that’s all it is, it’s moment to moment. It’s like me looking at your eyes. It’s like be open to change, and when I say being open to change I really mean that. Because like if you say ‘I only like yellow flowers and that’s it.’ You’re kind of finished with beauty. It’s so much, it’s more all encompassing. It’s not a face in the mirror all the time. Don't you think? I mean what do you think beauty is?”- Diane Keaton

Weekly What I'm Into!

   

1. The Every Girl's interview with Seventeen Magazine's Ann Shoket. I love this interview so much. Especially when she is asked "Best advice you have ever received?" This is her answer: "My favorite interview ever was when I sat down with Barbara Walters. I asked her, what do you know now that you wish you knew when you were a teen. She said, “Don’t imagine that your life now is the way it’s always going to be. You have no idea how interesting your life can become.” That’s an amazing message for women of any age. There are endless possibilities out there for you. You just have to be open to them!"

2. This VIDEO of a dad having a conversation with his 14 month old through a sliding glass door will make you giggle for sure! I imagine J will be a lot like this. Make sure you turn the volume up so you can hear the dad talking through a sliding glass window, saying gems likes: "She's a slave driver, it's good you know this now." 

3. Ed Sheeran's cover of Drunk in Love is pretty amazing! That's all.

4. Finally picked our florist! And it's the amazing and unparalleled Anthology. I can not even describe how excited I am about this! I can't wait! The wedding less than 4 months away!!

5. Last but obviously not least, I was watching Bethenny,as I always do, and she mentioned that she is releasing a SkinnyGirl Hummus nation wide. I literally jumped for joy, since I love me some hummus and anything my girl Bethenny does. Now, I couldn't find ANYTHING about it online, but I found her recipe for how to make your own at home. So, we will start with that... Here is it!

Another week, a ton more fun things!

1. Beyonce Nail Decals. Obviously I ordered these. They were necessary. 

2. Jake Bugg. You and Me. Jake performed on American Idol a few weeks back and I can;t get this song out of my head. He reminds me of Bob Dylan and I love every second of it.

3. Alex. Alex. Alex. Alex Preston on American Idol is everything. His rendition of Don't Speak was EVERYTHING.

4. Champagne Basics. Cupcakes & Cashmere is a HUGE inspiration for me. And I am very into champagne right now. So this is basically amazing for me.

Fall Inspiration!

A few things from Pinterest that I am LOVING for Fall:

1) Sneakers and Dunks with your Fall look. Especially with these shiny leggings! This particular look is from Emerson Fry. 2) Glitter in my cup. This link has the DIY to get your Starbucks cup into the holiday spirit. 3) Monogramed everything. I love this necklace from BaubleBar. It’s on my Christmas/Birthday wish list for sure! 4) These two! Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez are just as cute as they come. I’m loving Taylor’s red lips with her striped sweater. And Selena’s flannel looks cozy enough for any drizzly night out.

Friday Friend Focus… Lonna Marie

I’m truly blessed to have grown up witnessing such talented and determined people and this girl is one of the best. While we were never super–dee-duper close in high school, I have always respected her talents and her vibe. She is who she is and that isn’t always easy to do. Through the magic of social networking, we have become co-supportors and even friends on Twitter and Facebook , and while we may not be BFF, I’m so grateful to have her somewhere in my life. Her music and her drive inspires the shit out of me. She’s unique and heartfelt. Creative and raw. Loving and living. She isn’t “in it” for the glamour or the fame. She’s just one of those people that needs to share the music that is inside of her. And what is better than that? Nothing.

She posts mash-ups and acoustic performances on youtube all the time, but here is my favorite song of hers… an original… “Don’t Forget”. I have a feeling you won’t forget her.

We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together

Screen-Shot-2012-08-14-at-1.14.55-PM

Holy Beejezus! Taylor Swift is coming out with a new album, RED, on October 22nd! Which mean,s it’ll be check in time to make inevitable concert tickets number 2 on my Christmas list, right under laser hair removal. Let’s be real.

It’s a perfect and complete break-up anthem and, even though I am madly in love with my boyfriend, I sing it like I hate him. Sometimes he sings along.

Here’s her first single:

WE ARE NEVER EVER GETTING BACK TOGETHER.
