Around Here

Monday, March 26, 2012

Things have been busy as usual. Had a few shoots for The Everygirl, did some minor redecorating, and Alaina & I photographed each other for Jess LC . Yes. You read that correctly. More on that next week. Met a friend for dinner and drinks at Japonais, I'm halfway through book 2 of The Hunger Games, worked out, relaxed, and joined Alaina, Lauren, and Jess for dinner and drinks & enjoyed the return of Mad Men. 

If you aren't following us on instagram, here's a look at what's been going on.You can follow me on instagram, too.

Photo shoot with Alaina and her mom.

I wore my Ali Ro anorak all weekend.

Went for a run on Sunday morning. Tulips are blooming! Feels like spring.

Lots of stripes.

I took the train all by myself. I never take the train. I'm practically from Chicago now.

We stopped by Jayson Home & Garden to pick up a few things for two upcoming shoots. I need this chair.

Took the covers off a few of my books to reveal black, white, & gold. Lovely.
Brilliant suggestion, Alaina! Thank you! 

The gold Athena tray (which should be back in stock at the end of April) has a new home.

The coffee table has been restyled.

Bedside table, too.

Flowering branches. It feels like spring.

My new Jess LC necklace & bracelet. I'm in love.

Join us for a little Coffee Talk on The Everygirl!
