The golden girls

I have been waiting for last night for awhile now. Not only was it the Golden Globes but it was also the season two premiere of GIRLS. 

:: side note :: If you haven’t watched GIRLS yet, you probably should take a sick day and catch up immediately. Lena Dunham is brilliant {hello writer, director and star at age 26} and so ridiculously spot on in her tales of living and surviving as a 20-something girl.
Okay, back to the Globes. Besides loving the hilarious girl hosting duo AND laughing my face off at Kristen and Will’s presentation, fashion is and always will be my favorite part of the award-winning-season. 
There were a lot of classic reds and winter whites out on the red carpet yesterday, but I couldn’t help but gasp when I saw these beautiful ladies- Jessica Alba {GORG!} and a close runner-up, Kerry Washington. They both looked absolutely stunning and won over my pick for the golden girl of the night.
Who are your golden girls of the globes? 

oatmeal is my favorite

Yep, you read that right. Oatmeal is my favorite breakfast food. Ever. Recently, I made the easiest and tastiest slow-cooker recipe and, for some reason, I feel like I really need to share it with you all. It’s the perfect breakfast for these cold, winter mornings and it takes about 10 minutest the night before.
{I promise}

:: Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal ::

2 apples (cored and peeled)
1 cup steel cut oats 
1.5 C water
1.5 C skim milk
2 TBSP brown sugar (or something to sweeten- agave, maple syrup, etc)
1 TBSP flax seeds
pinch of salt

Stir everything together in your crockpot and cook on LOW for about 7 hours.

In the morning, add whatever you want! I like to add berries and walnuts and a little bit of milk.


inspired entertaining :: baby shower love

This past fall, I had the pleasure to work on a dear friend’s baby shower. She left the gender of the baby a surprise which allowed me to have fun creating a new and playful theme. After a lot of brainstorming, we landed on “mustache or bow, no one knows”and it turned out awesome. The hostesses were ever so helpful and fabulous and together, we were able to create a very special day for a wonderful family. In fact, over the holidays, two awesome blogs picked it up and featured all the details!

Cheers to 2013

Happiest New Year everyone. I hope you had a joyous holiday season and a fabulous time ringing in the new year.

Over the last couple of months, I got overwhelmed. Life got busy and yes, the holidays snuck up surprised us, as they always do. I needed some time. I’ve been doing a lot {imagine me really exaggerating “a lot”} of thinking…Reflecting over the last year and trying to set my goals for this year. As excited as I am about a new year and beginnings, I also get very anxious. {is it just me?} Like most of us out there, I put a lot of pressure on myself. More than I’d ever give off. Having your own business is hard. It’s amazing and liberating but oh-so hard. I’m pretty sure I put more pressure on myself now than any boss ever did. No one wants to fail so {as your own boss} you are constantly getting down on yourself
…I could have worked harder. I should have made more money… 
You can easily get lost in these thoughts while your heart starts pounding, your hands start sweating and you shoot up out of bed in total panic. {totally hypothetical situation, of course}
Unfortunately, success doesn’t happen overnight. No matter the hours, money, tears and late nights, it still takes time. So stop for a minute. take a breath. regroup. and focus. Reflect on the success you have and look at your PROGRESS. Try, for one minute, to focus on the positive. Remind yourself where you started and look at how far you’ve come. It’s a new year with new goals and new chances. So take them and keep on keeping on :)

Okay, so now that I’ve given you a pep talk {okay- so it was really for me. I just needed to say it out loud}, I wanted to share this inspiration I found over on the atelier.

I hope you’ve found your inspiration for the new year. I’d love to hear from you, so give me a shout out and tell me about your goals, promises or just to say hi. Cheers!
