gap goes bright

I am l-o-v-i-n-g Gap's spring campaign. The site is colorful, the girls are adorable, and the clothes are totally doable. Get me out of my winter black and into some of those bright pants, pronto!

tea time

I just finished thumbing through "The Ultimate Tea Diet" by Mark Ukra. Although some points were a little much (tea rub for meats?) you don't have to tell me twice that tea is tasty & good for you. It's tough for me to follow exact meal plans and strict regimes, so my main takeaway was drink tea--a lot, all day. Sounds good to me!

My picks for a perfect cuppa tea:

Yogi Green Tea Kombucha: a nice break from typical strong green teas, this Yogi flavor is a bit fruity and smells delicious. My Korean-tea-expert friend recommended it to me.. and she knows her stuff!

Twinings Gunpowder Green Tea
: this is actually swiped from my little bro after he lost interest in a supposed tea kick. It is a typical strong green tea, but is loose and in pellet form, so you need a special little accessory tea strainer

Tazo Passion Tea: no doubt, the prettiest of the bunch--a deep magenta! Passion tea is my go-to when I'm bored with water and tea, and want major flavor without the caloric punch in the gut.

I've admired the Kate Spade home items for a long, long time and can't imagine anything better than cozying up with one of these cups and a good book...or magazine :) I think I've been obsessed with the gold dot mug for years!  Left: Ticker Tape Mug, Right: Illustrated Salan Wall Cup and Saucer.

Does anyone have any favorite teas to share? I'm open to suggestions!

grammys best dressed?

These young starlets are so on-trend: neon, metallic, youthful, and fresh-faced. Nailed it!

a super weekend

Last weekend was definitely one for the books! A friend and I hit the road and headed to Indy to partake in the Super Bowl festivities. It. Was. Awesome.

A highlight of the weekend: 3rd row (for free!) at the CMT Crossroads concert starring Steven Tyler and Carrie Underwood.  I mean, we were so close I could see every sequin on Steven Tyler's (tight) pants.

And Carrie... an official girl crush. Gams of the century, without a doubt.
