Stars, Stripes, and Watermelon…

So the original plan was to fly and visit my parents for the Fourth of July… Mom’s hydrangeas in full bloom, feeding carrots to the horses down the road, early morning plane rides with Dad over the tributaries of the Potomac… all wonderful, lovely, relaxing country things.

And it started off fine, I was able to leave work early and arrive at LaGuardia in plenty of time thanks to the new Q70. I looked at the departure list and it was very ominous… most flights were cancelled with the exception of mine and about four others. I held on to hope that Hurricane Arthur would not keep me from my wonderful three-day countryside escape but alas, two hours later my flight was cancelled along with everyone else’s.

So I’m back in my rainy Manhattan, but it’s not going to stop me from enjoying our Fourth! The hubby is making his amazing pesto with pasta we brought back from Italy and I’m going to try my hand at an Apple Pear Crisp, courtesy of Ina Garten. I watched her make it this morning and she always makes me feel like I can get better in the kitchen (and somehow she never makes such a mess!) =)

Here’s hoping if you celebrate, that you got where you were going and that you have a happy 4th of July! And to cheer us all up on this rainy holiday… some wearable stars, stripes, and very yummy watermelon!

Blogger Inspired…

Since I’m slowly starting to get back into the swing of things, I’ve been looking to my favorite blogs for inspiration. I’ve been following Jessica of Bows & Sequins for probably over a year now. She has a great sense of style and exudes excitement for fashion and girly-girl fun through her blog. Plus, she’s super hilarious and types how she thinks which makes me literally laugh out loud.

A blogger inspired post was just the thing to get me back into my little window studio. (Will share pics later of my new space once it’s completely set up!) I love a great fashion find for a bargain and Jessica narrates the story of her super steal on this beautiful Valentino dress. Be sure to head on over to her blog and read this post. Thanks, Jessica for being an inspiration!

Blogger Inspired…

When I’m feeling uninspired, I can always count on a healthy dose of blogger inspiration to get me drawing again. Meet Jennifer of Red Soles & Red Wine. Not only is she super fashion savvy, she’s an entrepreneur and has her own jewelry business, T & J Designs. How cool is that? I have to say, I do love my mint necklace =) Thanks Jennifer for being an inspiration!

p.s. If I didn’t love this outfit so much, I’d be crazy jealous of her giant red Celine shopper!!
