GO GREEN: First, if you're not already drinking your H2O out of a reusable bottle (sans BHP), then you need to jump on that bandwagon pronto! I have several varieties, but squealed with delight when City Girl blogged about Cafe Press's AWESOME customized SIGG bottles! Go here to design your own - you can even preview your SIGG in action ;) Check out City Girl's below!
PLANNER PAD FUN: Have you jumped on the Planner Pad bandwagon yet? I'll be the first to admit they're not much to look at, but they are AMAZING as far as planners are concerned. Not convinced? Check out Kimberly's fabulous planner pad podcast (featuring the lovely Julia!). Scroll down to podcast #143 - these ladies are planner pad fanatics!! I received a question from a dear reader about how to make these suckers more aesthetically pleasing. For moi, the easiest thing to use is scrapbook paper (if you can find the adhesive kind, even better!), glue, ribbons, and stickers. Below see (crappy) pics of my current PP covered in Amy Butler scrapbook paper and embellished with fun monogram stickers. I tie pink ribbons to the top of the spiral to use as bookmarks (you can see them peeking out the bottom of the 2nd pic). Sooooo easy!
Oooh bop, FASHION! No FUN post would be complete with some fashionable eye candy, n'est ce pas? Well since it's already been brutally hot in Austin (upper 90's a couple weeks ago - ick), i've decided summer is officially here to stay, despite the fact that it's still May. So, i've rounded up some of my fave swimwear for your viewing pleasure :)
One of these days i'm determined to get myself into a flattering bandeau top. In the meantime, i'll just dream about sporting this adorable one from J. Crew in this fabulous minty seafoam green. (P.S. Comes in TONS of colors!)
I LOVE striped suits (altho they're prob not v. flattering, huh?), and the retro chic style of this sweet two-piece from Anthropologie is calling my name... (of course i'd never respond until i looked like the model - ha!)
I'm beyond thrilled that one pieces have made such a fierce comeback! They're not just for old momma's anymore, girls. There are some adorable options out there that cover all manner of sins (and i'm not talking about the crazy sh*t Paris Hilton wears, ok?). I was immediately drawn to the sugary sweet pastels and ruffle mania of this Anthropologie number. If it weren't so darn expensive, i'd buy it in a heartbeat!
For more affordable options, always check out your local Tajay or Old Navy - they have great selection of bikinis for next to nothing. Also, Victoria's Secret is having a big sale on their swimwear as well, and if i remember correctly, they tend to get heavily marked down towards the end of the summer.
That's all for now... have a wonderful Thursday!!
