 lace in teal dress: c/o Stitched + Adorned / cardi: f21 / ivory tights: c/o We Love Colors / shoes: TJMaxx 
scarf: H+M / custom made sunglasses: c/o 39dollarsglasses

this weekend was just what i needed.
a vacation from the vacation.
slept in all possible mornings.
caught up with a girlfriend over at my fave mexican restaurant (ate my weight in salsa and chips).
spent too much time on pinterest.
went on a 20-mile bike ride with daddy (oh, the legs are burning now). 
finalized my list of 2012 goals (will share soon!).
obnoxiously tweeted and watched the Golden Globes red carpet with my mom.
smashbooked holiday instax pics.
doodled with my new sharpie markers.
oh, and remembered that i owe you people a couple hair tutorials and a book reading list (it's a new year, so anything is possible).

and speaking of books, add Cinder and Clockwork Prince (read Clockwork Angel first) to whatever reading list you have. pin it. good read it. download it on yo kindle, peeps 'cause i read those back to back over break and...oh, my goodness, talk about dying over books. (to be honest, i'm just trying to find a distraction until March 23rd. i'm sure i'll be dying over that movie, but that's a whole other story.)

much love.
[happy tuesday, friend.]
