Yes . I . Would . Like . To

My mom has younger twin brothers. I don't see either very often, as they don't live anywhere near Michigan, and haven't since they were growing up. So I get updates from my Mom every now and then about what they're doing. I knew that my uncle R. purchased some property in Mexico awhile ago, I think in the hopes of one day retiring there.

When I was chatting with my mom earlier today, my uncle got mentioned, as he and his wife are moving cross-country. I asked if they still had the house in Mexico and after saying they did, she mentioned that they said we could stay there anytime we wanted.

Um, what? How is it that we just went through a whole three months of winter with NO mention of a courteous offer of a free place to stay in Mexico? Oceanfront. In. Mexico.

Christmas break = shoveling driveway? Or Christmas break = lying on the beach? Not much of a contest there.

My mom said my dad doesn't really want to go, so she probably won't either. LEAVE HIM BEHIND! Because if B. doesn't want to go with me, I'll just take lots of pictures and show them to him when I get home. From Mexico.

As much as I love this store, this post is mostly for my mom, as I think if she had a store that was her very own, it would look something like this:

DavidMetNicole is a crazy/amazing antique store in Sydney, Australia, and feels like just the place where you could stumble across the perfect treasure.

These McQueen shoes are still not my favorite, but they look amazing in this jungle shoot! Completely unexpected.

Shop . Update

I've gotten in a few small updates to Pretty Little World this weekend, and have just added some wonderfully lovely couture dresses from the 1950s-1960s. Le sigh... so many pretty dresses, so few places to wear them! ... I may need to invent some!

Lookbook . Inspiration . Time

I was feeling a smidge uninspired fashion-wise this morning, so I spent some time trolling through Lookbook. I think I could spend an entire day looking at all of the wonderful outfits people put together -- what I wouldn't give to raid some of these girls' closets!

Nearly . There

I know that technically it's spring, but until I feel as though I can safely wear sandals every day, at any time of the day, it doesn't seem quite here. However, the fact that little flowers are starting to pop up and we can go for regular bike rides, makes me feel optimistic!!

Cat . Eye + Spring . Fever

I completely LOVE this girl's makeup -- I so wish I could do a cat eye like this!

Sparkle . Sparkle

I feel like this much jewelry should look tacky, but this woman looks amazing!! I love how she's layered all of these necklaces + rings + big earrings!

The . Cheese . Stands . Alone

Dear My-Future-Stand-Alone-Bathtub:

I look forward to the day when you can come home with me and become the prettiest part of my bathroom. I do not have floor to ceiling windows, nor plantation shutters, but I think that you will be happy here.
