I know I’ve been MIA for a few weeks in the blog-land, but I actually have a really good excuse. I started a new job! I started a few weeks ago for a company called SpinMedia – it’s a publishing company in the music and entertainment business. I am absolutely loving it so far! I have some pretty great coworkers that have made my transition a little bit easier. Plus, just being in the music and entertainment business is lots of fun.
Last week I got to travel to Los Angeles for training. Their headquarters is out there, and it was so much fun visiting a new city. The photo above was taken outside our hotel – the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood. I loved this hotel (as seen here and here, too). It used to be the “hot place” to go a few years back or so we heard. I guess it was even a location filmed for The Hills a few times. I think I might do a full post about my trip out there.
We get our new frenchie puppy (Chloe) in TWO WEEKS. I cannot tell you how excited I am! Just look how cute she is.
I just discovered this week that the Phillip Lim for Target line comes out on September 15th. I’ve already got my eye on at least two bags (yay, I can actually afford these ones), but I’m sure I’ll stockpile a ton of other things too. I know I’m going to love everything! You can check out a sneak peak of his line here.
I am getting my hair colored and cut next weekend, but I’m having a hard time deciding what exactly I want to do with it. I’ve debated doing a short-ish bob (like everyone else), because I really want to get rid of the layers in my hair. However, I am already rocking the ómbré look so maybe I should just do one trend at a time. What do you think?
The Chicago Air & Water Show is this weekend, and I’m pumped. I got my camera last year the day before the show so I can’t wait to take more pictures to see how much my photography has improved (probably not much since I have yet to take a class, ha). You can see pictures of last year’s show here.
I made cookie dough brownies for Evan’s very belated birthday treat. The only thing he asked me for were brownies for his birthday, and I failed. However, I think I made up for it, because they were absolutely amazing.
I am so excited that The Animal Print Shop finally decided to add a baby elephant to their collection. I just bought a new elephant painting (seen here) so I’ve got to figure out a place where I could put the elephant print before I buy it. I need a whole house to decorate otherwise I’m going to end up with 100 elephants in one room.
Big news! Evan and I have been searching for a french bulldog breeder the past couple days. I think we’ve finally found one we like and are just waiting for their next litter to be born in early July. I can’t wait for Crosby to have a little sister to play with soon! I already have a name picked out too (yes, I’m that girl).
My arms are still shaking from this at home workout. Seriously, those upper body circuits are a killer. However, pair it with a super cute Nike top and you’re golden. Cute workout clothes always make me work harder.
Is anyone addicted to Nashville as much as I am? Finally, finally, finally – Rayna and Deacon are together (well, kind of).
I should never be allowed in Ulta ever again. It just sucks me in and makes me buy everything. And those coupons. Ugh. I need to stop pretending those are free money.
How cute is this Kate Spade crossbody (the black/ivory)? I want. I need. I. must. have. it.
This is the last weekend we have to enjoy before our wedding season starts. We have a few big plans like celebrating Evan’s birthday a little early. Sake bombing here we come!
Last weekend I bought these jeans in my goal size! Working out and eating healthy seems to finally be paying off – woohoo. (I’m also going to pretend that these don’t run large and that I’m actually the size I bought.)
Absolutely loving my new iPhone 5. The camera is just so. much. better. I bought a really cheap bumper for the time being until I can decide what case I really want. I think I’m leaning towards this one. – it’s just so fun!
One of my best friends from high school is moving to Chicago today. I am so so so excited. She will be working about a block away from me. I see many lunch dates in our near future (and a smaller bank account since she is a stylist at Nordstrom).
I really need to make some StickyGram magnets asap. We have a short supply of magnets on our fridge and these are perfect.
