All things yummy!

Some days I think about food a lot..... I miss cooking (current living situation slightly prohibits how much I cook), baking and just preparing food in general.  These yummy pics make me want to dive right in, in no particular order.  Sorry, there are no recipes to accompany these photos, this
deliciousness is only for your viewing pleasure.
Mmm.. grilled cheese and tomato soup
addicted to raspberries at the moment

Crushing on Kate Spade...

I love Fall, love the clothes, accessories-they are all so much better in my opinion.  Here are some of my current Kate Spade crushes...
Love the Essex Scout Cross Body handbag

Down on the Farm

Thank goodness for the weekend.... It's been one of those weeks, can't wait for some downtime.  It appears I will get just that!  Headed to the Farm with my boyfriend for the weekend.  I don't think I will ever be considered a "country gal" (think Carrie in the episode of SATC where she and Aidan go to his country house, she looks real cute, dresses the part, etc).  However, even though I like love to shop, doesn't mean I can't appreciate the serenity of nature and trees and relaxation.  :)  You can take the girl out of the glamour but you can't take the glamour out of the girl! 
Besides, I have even grown quite fond of fishing... got a cute black/pink fishing pole and everything.. and YES, I baited my own hook!  Actually kinda fun!

Chanel Limited Edition Polishes

I have always been a fan of Chanel nail polishes and still sport "Vamp" every Fall.  Upon learning of two new limited edition colors, I thought I should scoop these up before they sell out as Chanel polishes normally do.  Not to mention, with August being my Birthday month, how can I pass up Peridot!?

Leaving on a jet plane....

I have not taken a REAL vacation (more than 3 days and flying to get there) in awhile... today that changes.  I will be going out west to see a friend.  It will be nice to leave my normal everyday routine alone for a few days (minus time with my boyfriend as I will miss him like crazy).
A few fun photos as a hint for where I will be going...

Trend: Socks with Sandals

I will admit (even though it has been around for awhile now), I like the socks/sandals trend with skirts.  I don't know if I can go as far as to try it and it certainly would not be understood in my part of the world.  With the right combo though, it definitely works.  I prefer the muted tones more than the brights but brights are always fun!

I actually own these Jessica Simpson shoes, so I think this is super cute!

I love quotes... I love how you read one and it relates to exactly how you are feeling at that very moment.  Here are a few of my favorites!

With the sweltering heat (in Georgia) it is sometimes hard to manage a pool or lake day!  I spent March-June living at the pool and the beach and for good reason since the temperatures have been soaring!  I am enjoying it while it lasts though.  :)
