I love the feather hair extension trend right now but I'll have to wait until summer to try and pull it off.
If you're up for the trend now, the Feather Junkie will be putting in extensions for $20 at Flirt Boutique in Dallas tomorrow. There's also a great selection of feather hair extensions from several sellers on Etsy.
As a child of the 80s, I was extremely fascinated by the blonde twins of Sweet Valley High, Elizabeth and Jessica Wakefield. With their sparkling blue eyes, California tans, and "perfect size six" figures, I was hooked on reading this mind candy once I had graduated from The Baby-Sitters Club.
The Sweet Valley High series by Francine Pascal is back again with a sequel, Sweet Valley Confidential: Ten Years Later. The twins are now in their late-20s and are apparently at odds with each other. Sweet and smart Elizabeth versus cool and scandalous Jessica? Sounds like perfect poolside summer reading to me!
Did you read the Sweet Valley High series? Do you think you'll read Sweet Valley Confidential?
I went to the Dallas Flea this morning and left with my first pair of cowgirl boots! After four years of living in Texas, it's about time I got an authentic pair. For $50 and already broken-in, I just had to nab them from Cowgirl Cuties.
Dunkin' Donuts has revealed plans for a "Royal Wedding Donut", a heart-shaped donut filled with red jelly and drizzled with chocolate. This royal treat will be available the week of April 24-29. Make sure pick them up for your late-night royal wedding watch party.
I've only been to a couple of flea markets before but I've always have so much fun at them. If this flier by Southern Fried Paper is any indication of the flea's cuteness, then I'm sure it will be a winner.
Red Velvet is my absolute favorite cupcake from Sprinkles! The fact that 100% of the proceeds from this cupcake is going to a good cause will make it even sweeter. This isn't the first time Sprinkles has stepped up in their giving to charity. Since opening, Sprinkles has donated more than $2 million in cash and cupcakes to their communities!
My friend Katy of Floor To Ceiling recently purchased a vintage typewriter that I'm totally swooning over. I have always had a special place in my heart for typewriters since I had my first typing experiences on them.
I really enjoy having fresh flowers at home but it be pricey to maintain. My latest DIY project is to create a faux flower arrangement made up of dried flowers. Of course the flower that strikes my fancy is uncommon and I'm having a tough time finding them.
March Madness is here and there aren't many things I like more than my Kansas Jayhawks.
In our goodie baskets for our out-of-town wedding guests, we included a Jayhawk cookie from Aunt T's Sweet Creations in Topeka, Kansas. They were a great deal at less than $1 each. I would highly recommend Aunt T's if you're looking for a KU-themed sweet treat!
It's such a small thing, but I'm participating in the Bloggers Day of Silence tomorrow to raise awareness about disaster relief in Japan. For Japan With Love is a grassroots effort from my blogging community to raise money for Shelter Box, one of the first aid agencies to help in the aftermath of the earthquake in Japan and Pacific tsunami. If you haven't donated already, consider donating to the cause.
March Madness is here! Have you filled in your brackets?
Although you can fill in most brackets online these days, I still carry around a hard copy with my picks filled in on it throughout March. Lauren of Rhythm and Daisies spotted this lovely NCAA Tournament Bracket on Vanity Fair. Even if your bracket gets busted, at least it will look pretty!
It's hard to believe that it's been a year since I worked with Stamped Paper Co. in designing our wedding invitations. At that time, I was constantly sending them ideas and inspiration from the many designs I swooned over.
One of my favorite resources for inspiration came from Minted. They recently released some new lovely new invitation from indie designers. Head over to 100 Layer Cake who is sponsoring a $250 Minted giveaway!
Not that I have any right to complain about winter (afterall, I do live in Dallas), but it is nice to see these relatively cold months come to an end. By my Texas version of "cold", I really mean 50 degrees. In defense of that statement, we did receive a record low of 13 degrees during our record high four school snow days in a row!
