Prosciutto for breakfast and dinner

For breakfast: A few slices on bagel with cream cheese and on a spinach and mushroom frittata.

For dinner: Served crispy on the side of portobello risotto

Too bad I'm not that into meat these days! Eat up Rob.

Cheap Thrill Thursday: Organize for less

Here are a few things that have made my life easier or more bearable at least:

iphone/ipod headset wrap 5.99 for set of 5: Check
these out listed on Amazon. They keep your headset untangled and tidy in your pocket or purse for when you need them!

Pretty wall hooks 18.00: This can double as your spot check mirror and help you keep your jewelry organized. You can find some with several hooks to separate necklaces from bracelets. You can find these anywhere at any price range I just love this one from Anthropologie.

Ikea Bevera Clips 2.99 for 30: I love these clips! One giant step up from chip clips or rubber bands. The really seal any open bags up well. Keeps your food fresh (no spilled rice)!

Enjoy the rest of your Thursday!

Don't mess with chicks in Burberry Patterns

All this rain has got me craving a trench coat. Take a look at this neat site: Art of the Trench created by Burberry to showcase people stylin' in their trench coats.

Dear Anthropologie

I'm writing as an avid fan and a regular consumer of your vastly stocked stores and website. I thoroughly enjoy browsing your website and take delight in your  product names, (the rising vapor dress brings great imagery). I also enjoy perusing through your stores; the way the outfits are styled, the way the stores smell, you offer everything for the senses. 
I'm writing you because I sometimes just don't understand you. I know you set the bar high for yourself; you want to be fashionably coveted, quirky, and whimsical all at once. And I love you for that, but please view my evidence below of where it can go wrong.

Country Fair Dress: 198.00! I'm not sure who the intended consumer was for this dress. I always wanted a dress with scenes from a country fair that looked like it was made from my four year old brother's bed sheets. Yes, when I was 6 years old. Although I know I'm not the only one you need to please, I just had to vent. Thank you for your time. Keep up the good work and I forgive you, lets move on and improve.

Still a fan,

Cheap Thrill Thursday!

It's Thursday, the day before Friday. You need something to do. You browse for cheap stuff, for no reason.

Today we'll visit Victoria's Secret's clearance section. Sorry boys no lingerie will be mentioned in this post!

Strapless Dress: $78 19.99. Strapless berry perfection, wrapped with a velvet bow
Ruffled v-neck sweaterdress: $58 19.99. Great transitional piece for late winter/spring, great for the office and night (pile on the accessories).

500 Colors to inspire you

I came across this site through the Brightside Project and instantly my first thought was "I wish I could draw!" I am completely inspired by this. It's a total art meets functionality piece that I would love to own if I had better artistic abilities. It would be great to have a rainbow at my fingertips.

Citrus Ap'peel'

I love that it's citrus season right now. Right now my fridge is filled with several types of citrus. Lets start with the most striking, blood orange and move clockwise. Besides the beautiful color, it has a wonderful sweetness with a hint of raspberry. The Honey Tangerine is as sweet as its name suggests, I love that it's easy to peel!  The Cara Cara Navel used to be harder to find (I used to only see them at Whole Foods exclusively!), they have a great pink flesh and mild rosy flavor. Clementines (aka cuties) are easy to peel and super sweet. Last we have the exclusive Meyer Lemon, a hybrid between sweet orange and lemons. You really can't tell in my photo, but the lemon does have a slight orange tinge to it. These are the best baking lemons. I'm very lucky Rob's generous coworker has a tree!
