pretty peonies


It's been one stressful day! I could use a spa day, how about you??
So let's look at some pretty peonies and hope our stress level goes down a bit. 

I heart peonies! I don't think I've ever actually bought a bouquet of them, until now. 
It will certainly not be the last though.

ps I know I take tonsss of photos of flowers! 
I hope you guys aren't too tired of them yet.

double rainbow

Today wasn't a great day. I had to work for 9 hours on a holiday and I was late because I didn't remember that public transit would most likely be on a different schedule (because of the holiday). Anyway, it was just a long day. But sometimes life gives you something amazing, like a double rainbow.

This didn't happen today. There was a pretty good storm that came through last week and this is what happened. It was pretty spectacular.

Hope you had a wonderful weekend!

memorial day

This coming Monday is Memorial Day and with it summer, supposedly. 
Here in Oregon it's been rainy and in the 50s this week, which I find amazing and kind of weird. 
If it were to be a sunny, nice day, I would love to be wearing something like this outfit. 
I'm kind of loving the bag, it's so interesting. 

Hope all of you have a fabulous weekend and Memorial Day!

a beach day


Last week I had a beach day! Two of my friends and I drove on over to Cannon Beach. It turned out to be a lovely day, with almost perfect weather. 

We didn't end up getting chai tea latte's. My fave coffee shop was finally open, but not on Wednesdays. It was just our luck. haha. Next time though, definitely next time.

Hope all of you are having a good week!

chambray season

This truly is the season for chambray. It's everywhere! I don't mind it though.  
A chambray top, colored jeans, and bright sandals are a winner in my book. 
Do you have a chambray top? How do you wear it?

coconut & color blocking


Sorry for the blog silence guys! It wasn't really intentional, but it's been tiresome these past few days. 
I'm now on my three day weekend!
I have plans of enjoying the nice weather outside and possibly getting a shade darker than being an extra from Twilight. Also, I will be going to the movies with friends and going out to Cannon Beach for a day.  I'm pretty excited about it, especially since my fave coffee shop, Insomnia, opened up a store at Cannon Beach. A magical chai tea latte and the beach sounds pretty perfect, don't ya think?
Anyway, here's some pics of what I've been loving lately.
 Vanilla steamer on my lunch break.

 My new favorite scarf. Color blocking love from the Gap.

The most amazing smelling lotion. Smells like summer, seriously. 
I'm about to go back and buy myself a bigger bottle. 

Now I'm off to try and clean my apartment, maybe.  
Hope all of you are having a great week!
