In My Dreams

I'm not typically a Coach kind of girl, but this coat has been taunting me from their storefront display for months. They occasionally change it up. A yellow handbag, then pink, then with a faux fur collar. Each revamp more delicious than the last. It makes me want to high five the person that designed it.

Mini Monday

I've been trying to build a solid "working girl" wardrobe and I most recently purchased Gap's camel mini skirt. I like the versatility it offers, both in color and shape, as well as the freedom to wear it casually on the weekend and formally during the week.

My Christmas List

I was a little hesitant about posting my Christmas list. It feels a little...(how do I say) not what Christmas is all about? So to preface, I love giving more than receiving. There's such a thrill in putting together the perfect gift for your best friend or loved one and no gift that I receive will ever top it. So, by posting my own I'm hoping to spark a gift idea for someone on your list this year. Enjoy :)

That Time I Made Something Amazing

You guys, I made the most amazing vanilla almond steamer Monday night. I know what you're thinking, steamers are as easy as it gets and you're right. That being said, you have no excuse not to make this delicious delight. It perfectly fulfills my holiday drink craving and keeps me from making excess runs to Starbucks. I think I might even try adding coffee, because a caffeine kick is the only thing missing.

I used this recipe here. Garnish with whipped cream, nutmeg and cinnamon.

P.S. Hoping to get in an outfit post soon!

I wanna be a Levo Leaguer

Do you follow The Levo League? If you don't, the modern feminist within me strongly suggest you start. I love when their Facebook updates appear in my feed. It's about the only thing in there I pay any attention to these days.

Something new

I had been looking for the right plaid scarf for some time and last week I finally scooped up this little guy.  Thank goodness I did, because my obsession was starting to even annoy me.


The source of my obsession began somewhere around here.

Potato Mountain

Confession: part of my irregular posting is due to frustration with my mediocre photos. I've been trying to utilize what I have, since a SLR isn't exactly in the picture. Given that I don't always remember to take my point and shoot with me, and when I do it's usually dead, I decided to give these recommended camera apps a try. Better than Bland is one of my favorite blogs and I so wish she would pick it up again.

These photos were taken on Sunday morning at Trotter's Cafe in St. Paul. I've eaten here many...many...many times (super nachos and/or Mediterranean pasta, anyone?), but I had never had their breakfast. Naturally, it was spectacular.
