all the pretty colors


I love the new lookbook for Ruche. It is so pretty! 
I would really like to have all the outfits! (if only that were possible)

Hope everyone has a great week!

travel tuesday: san francisco


found on tumblr
San Francisco. I've been wanting to visit this place for quite awhile, and this summer I may finally get the chance. I'm super excited! Anyone know of things to do and restaurants I must go to in the area?

Don't you just love this outfit?! I really like the skirt and the flowers.

ps Don't forget, you can still shop on my mark. store and I will donate a percentage of the sales to emergency shelter and lifesaving supplies for Japan via Shelterbox.

I'm participating in the bloggers day of silence, which is happening tomorrow. I know I've been neglecting my blog just a bit but this is for a great cause. If you would like to donate or find out more go to For Japan With Love

Also, if anyone would like to purchase anything from my mark. store from now until March 24th, I will donate a percentage of the sales. 

Hope everyone has a great Friday!

strawberry cupcakes


The other day I made strawberry cupcakes with a marshmallow creme frosting. 
 These cupcakes, in my opinion, weren't that great and sooo sweet! I ate one and felt like I was going to go into a sugar coma. I loved the pretty baking cups I found at Michael's and the sprinkles though! 

I gave the rest of the cupcakes for my Dad to take to work, and apparently everyone loved them. 
I guess I don't have the same sweet tolerance that everyone else does.
Such cute shoes! Right??

recipe overload


I have so many recipes that I want to try! It is officially ridiculous how many recipes I have saved up on my computer and on Pinterest. Anyway, here are some of the recipes I've saved.

Three Cheese Orzo and Spinach. Recipe from How Sweet It Is

Bowtie Lasagna. Recipe found on Tasty Kitchen.

So here are three I found. Don't they look delicious?! 
If anyone decides to make any of these dishes, let me know how they are!

going places


This ^ is very true at the moment. Just got a part time job, which has made me infinitely busier then I have been in months. Also, I was waiting to hear back about a job but it didn't work out, so I'm job hunting again. Trying to find places to apply to is difficult. Hopefully I'll figure out what I actually want to do though. I'm thinking whatever place that gives me a job will be the direction I take, unless I really don't like it. :)
There were two of these birds, Chachalacas, in my backyard last week. They are a little weird and kept poking at the window like they wanted to come into the house. haha.

Hope everyone has a great week!

I love this video! It just makes me happy. So many people are in it too like Josh Groban, Adam Levine, and Ingrid Michaelson, to name a few. Watch it! It's great!
