What Have You Been Up To?

Luckily work was a bit slow (after several  chaotic weeks) so I decided to take a couple of vacation days to extend my July 4th holiday.

This is what I was up to this weekend:

First, hubby took me out for a lovely dinner to celebrate my birthday.
Aureole, NYC
btw- food was amazing!

Some birthday baubles for myself from J. Crew

A little red, white & blue inspiration from J.Crew

A cute little guy with a hydrangea afro

Loving these flowers- want to add them to my garden at the new house:

I NEED these chairs!

Our strolls around the beach town where we were staying were abound with cute cottages, hydrangeas galore, pretty wild flower gardens and white picket fences:


Here's to a great week!



  1. I hit up the JCrew sale. What is a girl to do with 4 new pencil skirts?

    1. Oh the J. Crew sale.. How I heart thee and can't stay away from thee. LOL.

  2. Belated Happy Birthday Ris. Hahaha @ Amber's comment. I did the same. Have the pencil skirt in pink, yellow & blue... Lol

    1. Thanks, Yasmin! I too am the proud owner of yellow and purple pencil skirts, 2 tops, a bracelet, a necklace...maybe more... The sale just kept going and I had to keep going back!!!!! Help!! LOL

  3. Oh Ris, I meant to include this link for your viewing pleasure. CWonder's got some nice Ikat dinnerware and pillows. www.cwonder.com/home-decor. Sorry for the entire URL, haven't quite figured out how to share a hotlink on here.

    1. Hi Yasmin-
      Love C. Wonder's ikat dinnerware. See my post about it here:

      I hadn't seen the ikat pillows, napkins, placemats, makeup pouches, bags, dresses, shirts and shorts also over there. It's an ikat party! Thanks for pointing me in the ikat direction!! :)
