brave & roar

2 songs that are currently on repeat ... 

Brave: If I had moves like these guys, I'd be dancing all day long. Love Sarah Barielles, love this. 

Roar: I can't deny it ... I love my pop tunes!

And letmejustsay, in a world where twerking, tongues, and teddy bears are all the rage, it's pretty refreshing to see some good clean fun ... and dancing emojis.

The devil herself made her instagram debut this week, kicking off @voguemagazine's #septemberissue #voguestagram campaign. It doesn't get much better than Anna on instagram ... unless, of course, it's Anna and friends on instagram. 

You know, friends like ... 

and Oscar

kappa kappa utah 2013

I don't really participate in #throwbackthursday that often (because most of the photos of me looking super cute as a toddler blondie are at my parent's house) but I had to instagram a souvenir this past week: a photo strip with two of my best girls from our trip to Utah this summer. 

Which leads me to a long overdue recap of Kappa Kappa Utah 2013: Midge and I visiting Meg and her husband Jordan. We fit tons of laughs and adventures into our long weekend in Provo!

In a nutshell ... 
  • Hiking the "Y" above BYU ... and taking "Y" pictures at every possible opportunity after that
  • Exploring downtown Salt Lake City 
  • Pizza for dinner and dessert (Nutella ...) at Settebello in SLC
  • Listening to country legends from the Bluebird Cafe strum and story-tell at the Sundance Resort (SO good!)
  • Zip-lining and hiking in Provo Canyon
  • Bowling and comedy clubbing in Provo (in the 2 games we played, I went from best loser to best bowler ...??)
  • Alpine sliding in Park City (complete with a chair life ride!)
  • Stumbling upon a craft and food market in Park City

... basically, we had a blast. Until next time, Utah!

an east hampton getaway, powered by soulcycle

These days, you can't browse a blog, see a tweet or open a magazine without reading about SoulCycle. It has taken the Big Apple by storm! Now, it's no surprise that co-founder Elizabeth Cutler is fit and adorable, but it also appears she's also reaping the SoulCycle benefits in the form of East Hampton-perfection.  

Domaine Home took a tour of the Cutler family home (of Elizabeth, hubby and daughters Lucy & Nina) and it is pretty stunning. It's a perfect getaway home, with a beachy color palette, a comfortable (without being boring) vibe, and a backyard fit for lazy days by the pool. 

Love the coordinating green pom-pom trim on the curtains! And the wallpaper is a risk that definitely paid off.

loving // blurred lines with jimmy fallon

"Blurred Lines" just might be my favorite song of the summer: I cannot not car-dance when this comes on on the radio! And let's face it - Jimmy Fallon, the Roots, and a rainbow xylophone can make any hit a little cooler.

#ODLRfall13 debuts on instagram

Not many people scoop Anna Wintour and the Voguettes, but Oscar de la Renta pulled it off with flying (albeit moody) colors. Last week, the social media savvy got the first look at Oscar de la Renta's fall 2013 ad campaign via @OscarPRGirl on instagram. The innovative launch is really not surprising coming from the super creative ODLR team, led by OscarPRGirl's Erika and George & Ruby's Marissa. (Don't forget - these are the same folks who paired punk hair with elegant Oscar for the Spring 2013 collection!)

So pretty!

But .... 

... I'm a little on the fence about it. I tend to lean towards instagramming only "in the moment" photos. Don't get me wrong - change can happen. I've come around to #latergrams and #throwbackthursdays after all! But there's just something about instagramming professional photos that I'm just not a fan of ... but I suppose I can reconsider for special circumstances like these.

Oh social media ... you fickle, fickle friend of mine.
