Weekend by Instagram

It's Monday! 
Which means another link up party over at a {little} dash of ash.
Pop on over to check out all the other Instagram posts.

My weekend was relaxing and a little crazy all at the same time; a good mix of sleep, working out, good food, a little shopping and a special birthday celebration:


1. New perfume from H&M {2 other scents available!} sitting pretty on my vanity tray. 
2. My obsession: my Jonathan Adler Starbucks Card, couldn't live without!
3. A chilly night snuggled up at my parents under the best blanket ever ... made by grandma pattison.
4. Only the best ice cream EVER ~ Graeter's Mocha Chocolate Chip, seriously amazing.
5. The gorgeous Brent Spence Bridge on a beautiful Saturday morning in Cincinnati.
6. A much needed mani {My Private Jet by OPI} and a new ring from Banana Republic.
7. Fell in love with this fun and pretty clutch at DSW ..... I think it needs to be mine.
8. Banana Republic's belt display.
9 and 10. SPARKLE by Steve Madden at DSW {nine came home with me!}
11. Anna Julianne and myself at The Wine Guy to celebrate Julianne's birthday.
12. Claire Taylor and Lauren ... gorgeous friends on the other half of the table.
13. Fire roasted tomato bisque with a sour cream drizzle and croutons to top it off.
14. Sweet glazed salmon over top a bed of au gratin potatoes and topped with a pepper and corn salsa.
15. and 16. The gorgeous and super delicious cake that was paired with champagne.


  1. lovely pics!
    Have a nice day!

    ...and maybe we can follow each others!?

  2. Looks like a pretty awesome weekend! Thanks for visiting my blog :)

  3. Love your new ring!!
    ps..i had to reread it like 3 times to understand that the #9 came home with you and not 9 pairs of sparkly heels!! lol although, what a magnificent arrangement that would be! ;)

  4. Love this! Have you ever had cinnamon Graeter's? It's seasonal... I forget if it is Nov and Dec or Oct and Nov... but you should try it - it is SO DELICIOUS! I am also looking forward to peppermint next month :) Those sparkly heels are absurd/awesome. I might need to pick up a pair.

  5. Lauren ~ I had NO idea about the cinnamon!!! I MUST see if it's still available. I try to stay away or I'd have graeters every night!
    And yes the sparkle shoes .... Uh-mazing! And a steal at $60! I got them at Rookwood.

  6. Those black sparkly shoes are so cute. I have silver ones, but I think black ones would be much more versatile.

  7. love the ring! thanks for linking up! hope to see you back on Monday! xxoo
