80’s Baby

Oh my God, you’re such an 80’s baby…

This is what my co-worker tells me every time I unroll a Fruit Roll-Up, or shake a box of strawberry Nerds into my hand.

Am I an 80’s baby, or just a really unhealthy, sugar freak?

Either way, I was doing some old-school candy research for our upcoming National Sales Conference (don’t ask) on, and I came across the below:

Seriously, a dream come true.  It’s like this was made specifically for me!

All this case of dreams is missing is a box of Nerds and a packet of Fun Dip.

Nobody should ever say that I’m difficult to shop for, ever again.  Of course, I’m sure my dentist won’t be happy with me come Monday morning.

Just got my annual flu shot!  Easy and painless.  Doesn’t hurt that I didn’t have to leave the floor of my office building to get it, either.

Hoping for a flu-less season for a change…

Finally saw the much-buzzed-about “Bridesmaids” this past weekend…

Absolutely hilarious, and I am already going to start requesting that one of my friends hand out the same “bridal shower” favors as they do in the movie… yellow lab puppies!!

Alexa Chung for Madewell

As much as I love J. Crew, I’ve never been a big fan of Madewelluntil now, that is.

Let me start off by saying that Alexa Chung’s collection for Madewell has definitely swayed my opinion (similar to my opinions on Mulberry and my much-loved Mulberry “Alexa” bag).

So long as there’s lace and scalloped hems, I’m sold.

In other words, I basically wish I could have this entire collection.

Lucky Strike

I haven’t been bowling since I was fifteen (unless you count a work outing I had back in April, but that’s the extent of it), but let me tell you something, bowling is just like riding a bike…

Well, not exactly- but needless to say, I wasn’t half as bad as I was 10 years ago.  In fact, I only had approximately 3 gutter balls (and one strike and 3 spares, thank you very much).  Of course, I received the lowest score in our foursome, but I must admit that bowling is kind of a good time.

I guess it also didn’t hurt that we had unlimited well-drinks for an hour, and the food wasn’t half bad either… Who knew that bowling alleys were so upscale and swanky these days?  I’d definitely go back.

As always, Luca Luca never ceases to please.

Off-Catwalk Fashions

Tommy Ton, otherwise known as “everyone’s favorite photo blogger” from, is a complete photo genius.

While editors and stars are scampering from show to show, Tommy Ton is attending one massive show of his own… all the while photographing some of the world’s most fashionable in their natural habitat (well, I wouldn’t exactly say natural).

My friend Alana sent the twin Celine photograph to me, and the subject-line was “must be nice“.

Yes, it must…
