siri with the fringe on top





Lately I am all about fringe and I am loving my new me&d bag that is fringy and fabulous.
me&d are local designers based in Sacramento, CA and they have amazing leather bags.  AMAZING!!! I own too many already but can't help myself.  They also have skirts, dresses and tops that are made of super soft cotton that you never want to take off.  me&d is definitely a casual cool line and I am so excited to share them with you.

Here's the long hobo bag that is super soft leather but also seriously durable. 

Here's the black fringe bag that I have a version of from me&d and use all the time. 

If you want to snag yourself one of these beauties check out their Etsy page, you won't be disappointed peeps.

I have been wanting to post on this lil old blog of mine for awhile now so I am happy to be back.
I am sure most of you heard today's much anticipated announcement of the Fifty Shades of Grey cast!!
I have had countless discussions, dare I say debates, with my girlfriends as to whom would be the best Christian Grey.  And while the list was long with my besties, my original hottie wasn't picked.  Boo hoo me not because this Charlie Hunnan is starting to grow on me.
So without further adieu, meet the cast of the sexiest book around, the cast of Fifty Shades of Grey.

Charlie Hunnan as Christian Grey


Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele


Did you read this series of books?  What do you think of actors cast?  Do you even care?
The movie doesn't come out until August but I cannot wait!

Chicago in bits

 Driving past the city en route to Lincoln Park, my sissy's hood. 

 At Taverna 750 for dinner.  iphone pic hence the fuzzy quality. 

and drinks

My sissy's hood in Lincoln Park.  I love the tree lined streets. 

 The hanging flower plants are so charming. 

 Square by Gibsons Restaurant and my sissy.

 At Gibsons for more yummy food.

Couldn't miss the Toby Keith concert. 

Drinking Bud Light in the stands. 

My constant accessory, my Kate Spade sunnies which have nada to do with Chicago. Ha.


Two weeks ago I took an impromptu trip to Chicago to visit my sissy.  Okay impromptu for me is about two weeks of planning.  Being a single mom can be tough and I needed a break and some good fun. Luckily my sis and her beau are always welcoming.  
Most of the trip was spent working out; I love Exhale as well as running along Lake Michigan.  We also shopped a bit and ate a lot.  Chicago has such a great nightlife and I always enjoy it with my sissy, her beau and friends.  
There is just something about the Midwest that makes me feel at home.

::the series::


Please join me in celebrating my new series on A Spoonful of Dish


There are few things I love more than leopard thus it seemed 
appropriate to create a series around it.   


The sweater above paired with the yellow skirt and rad necklace is perfection. 



This wallpaper is amazing especially with the gold styled shelves. 



Sequins + Leopard = love



This chair is incredibly chic as is the space. 



These shoes are platform perfection.



I adore this sweet + stylish look. 

I hope you enjoyed my premiere post on my new series.  
Please let me know if there is anything you'd like to see.
