sweet home cedar rapids

Big props to Danielle for showing me this gem.

I never ever ever EVER thought I'd see the day they'd make a movie out of my terrible (excuse me, beautiful and Barbados-like) hometown. In fact, as I sit here enjoying the sickly sweet scent of Quaker Oats and stare out the window at 12+ inches of snow and poorly-dressed Iowans, I wonder what Fox was thinking.

But, then I remember that I don't really care. CEDAR RAPIDS!

christmas in...awesome?

despite the recent 10 hour client meetings, last minute cross-coast (cough-of missouri-cough) move and other various sources of stress — Kanye's first draft of Christmas in Harlem still manages to make me psyched for the holidays.

listen here

UPDATE: extended version featuring  Cam, Vado, Jimmy, Pusha, Big Sean (my love), Cyhi, Teyana Taylor and Musiq

ugly sweater minus the sweater (and the ugly)

cheat the system and avoid this season's inevitable holiday "itch."

(not that itch. gross. go to the doctor.)

not only do I thoroughly enjoy the concept of this shirt...but I think I'm also kind of in love with that boy.

in the navy

any excuse to continue my nautical theme, right?

normally, upon finding this product page I'd scream "WHY DOESN'T THIS COME IN BLACK?" However, navy is certainly an unexpected and delightful surprise.

anchors away

What better way to stay in touch with your friends?

 Or sisters?

Or in my case — THOSE sisters.

 (Back off sorority haters.)

Thanks Joanna.

seeing spots

Just had to pick up a pair of polka dot tights after stumbling upon these killer inspiration looks this weekend.

Check out even more sexy spots here.

Now...what to wear with my leopard tights?
