weekend forecast

Hey, remember when I used to do these Weekend Forecasts every week? Those were good times. But hey, it’s back for today – and we should really be living in the now, not wondering what the hell I’ve been doing with my Fridays for the last two months. Right? Right. So, here’s what I’m up to this weekend:

  • Fostering quite possibly the cutest dog alive (not counting my Daisy, of course, who is above all comparison), and doing my best to find him a home before my hubs falls in love with him. I’m telling you, friends: rescue dogs are where it’s at. 
  • Reallyreally wanting this necklace from Alexis Russell’s new collection, which somehow manages to be dainty, edgy and original all at once. I love the oxidized silver against the rose gold chain, and the way she’s strung the chain up above the diamond bar.
  • Developing a new music obsession with Fitz and the Tantrums – it began when I heard the band name, which is maybe the second-best band name of all time (a Tom Petty cover band called “Petty Theft” gets the #1 spot), but then I heard the album, and yeah. It’s pretty well impossible to be in a bad mood while this thing’s playing, which means it’s on a lot at my house.
  • Being slightly less annoyed by all things Miley Cyrus after seeing her cover of “Jolene”. (BTW, did you know Dolly Parton is her godmother? Just full of random trivia, I am.)
  • (Im)patiently waiting for my shipment from Abe’s Market to arrive – the girls at Of A Kind convinced me I had to try these cocoa-dusted almonds, and I’m on pins and needles.
  • Falling even more in hetero-girl-crush love with Kim France after reading her article about taking a bad experience and finding the nuggets of good in it. I too have had that awful fired-from-my-dream-job-in-dramatic-fashion moment, and I too thought my world would cave in. Perspective, it’s what’s for dinner.

And if that’s not enough, I’m scouting V-Day gift ideas for next week’s gift guide – which will, as usual, be mostly about things you should buy yourself on Valentine’s Day.

What’s on tap for your weekend, friends?

celeb style: miley cyrus in rosena sammi jewelry

miley2      picture-41

we’re making a rare foray into the world of celeb style today, but i just couldn’t resist.  miley cyrus isn’t exactly on my list of stars to watch, but i do happen to love the necklace she’s sporting in these photos.  turns out it’s called the goa necklace, designed by rosena sammi.  from the photo on sammi’s website, i would never have given this one a second glance, so i’m thrilled to have a closer look.  turns out that, in silver, and with a “live model” to show off the long length, i’m suddenly a huge fan of this piece.  i love the chunky square beads mixed with the oversized chain – it’s a fantastic combination.

best of all, it’s a perfect investment for spring – $189 is definitely within the realm of reasonable for a fabulous statement piece like this.  and you’ll be able to make this work with a boho style (as miley is aptly demonstrating), or something much dressier.  if you’re looking for an accessory to invest in for spring, this is a great candidate….i know it’s high on my wish list!  pick it up from sammi’s website, before the celeb stalkers clean them out entirely!
