Love this dandelion blouse.

Alternate opening to SATC. Miss her.

Favorite Women’s Looks from Victoria x Target

I am a huge Victoria Beckham fan and a huge Target fan, so them coming together makes my fashion heart explode. Just a little. Victoria Beckham’s classy, but edgy style with Target prices? Is this not a win-win??

The line is available starting on April 9th. It is full of jacquard, twill, and all other good Spring things…

8 Beautiful Wallpapers for Le Bathroom

I’ve really been into that decor trend where you only wallpaper one wall of a room. I love that it adds color and personality without it being “too much” or taking up any space. AND, since it’s only one wall, you can be a little more daring with the patterns and colors. Fun fun.

The smallest space in my apartment is my bathroom. Because of its small space, there isn’t much I can fit in there. SO, I figured, wallpapering would be the perfect solution to give it some spice. Here are some beauties I’ve found to beautify le bathroom…(p.s. how amazing are removable wallpapers?!)…

Things to Love This Weekend

Happy Friday! The weather is warming up, April is coming, and wedding season is here. Anyone else going to a million weddings, bachelorette parties, and bridal showers? I love “love”, I love celebrating love, and I love my friends, but it can be overwhelming. “One step at a time” is what I keep telling myself. Anyway, to take you guys into YOUR next step, which is the weekend, here are some interesting, yummy, funny, lovely things…

Hip hop fans, you need this shirt.

I love hotels, but I do worry about how wasteful they can be. That’s why I LOVE this.

I want to do this! I probably won’t run a marathon, but I’ll probably be more productive.

Tips for a great breakfast.

Hmm…interesting, important piece. “The world will not be destroyed by those who do evil, but by those who watch them without doing anything.”

Love these spring sandals. 

Can’t wait for this. I support you EPA.

A list of demands for his wife. Giggle.

Favorite Vegan Recipe Sites

Hello. My name is Greta and I’m a vegan. Well, almost. I don’t talk about my diet much because I break too many rules to be called a “vegan”, but I still have too many rules to not be labeled as something (vegetarian, pescaterian, macrobiotic, etc.). Must we label everything?

For me, diet is really personal. One person’s diet may not have the same results for another person. Playing around with what foods work for you shouldn’t be something that we need permission for. The more we experiment the more we know about ourselves and what’s available in this industry.

With that said, for anyone who is thinking of delving into veganism, or adding more vegan dishes to their diet, I’ve found these sites to be the easiest and yummiest…

A Must-Watch: The White Helmets

You may have heard of this documentary already because it won this little award called an Oscar (Osss-qure?). I had heard about it, but it took me months to finally sit down and watch it. Don’t make my mistake. If you have 30 minutes sometime this week, have a watch. It is not only well-directed and well-edited, it is also incredibly relevant and moving.

The White Helmets is about a group of civilian volunteers called the Syria Defense Forces aka The White Helmets. The group comprises of civilians from all walks of life (former blacksmiths, teachers, accountants, etc.), who have come together because of the need for first responders in the midst of the Syrian civil war. They risk their lives daily to save other people because to them “your brother is our brother”. To them, they are in this together.

Apartment Hunt: Stylish Rocking Chairs

I live in a 500 square feet apartment so every piece of furniture matters and adds enormously to the vibe of the space. Since I don’t have a ton of space, I’m constantly looking for furniture that’s not only functional, but stylish.

This is why I’ve really been into rocking chairs recently. They add style, ambiance, and a bit of fun to a room. And, based on these designs, we can definitely see that they are no longer just patio furniture or for nurseries…
