Happy Weekend! It's been a long but quick week, if that makes sense. The days flew by, but I kept thinking it was Friday as soon as I woke up on Wednesday -- not a good thing. Starbucks seemed to be the only thing that would get me through the week -- that and a weekend in Wilmington with my family and some of my best friends. P.S. how do you cure a Starbucks addiction? I need help.

How gorgeous is this picture? He who has seen Paris and not Cassis has seen nothing," was spoken by writer Frédéric Mistral of this stretch of the French Riviera. I've yet to see Paris, but I can tell you that Cassis is now on my wanderlust list. The colors, the view, everything - it is perfection.

I drink a breakfast smoothie almost every morning, but I tend to throw in the same old things. I'll be switching it up next week this delicious smoothie recipe + a scoop of my protein powder.

look to love
This look is perfect for this time of year. We've had warmer temperatures that in the 70s followed by gorgeous 50s and 60s that call for a sweater, and this look from Hello Fashion is my inspiration for this early spring weather.

I'm really working on curbing my sweet tooth in terms of cookies and ice cream and replacing those things with sweet treats like a yummy fruit salad. I have gotten in a terrible habit of grabbing a bowl of ice cream before bed or a doughnut at the office, and it's starting to catch up with me. I've felt incredibly unhealthy and it also makes for those mid-day slumps after a sugar crash. So I'm working on opting for yogurt or fruit as my "treat," but don't get me wrong, I will never give up the occasional splurge. Any fun and healthy sweet treat suggestions are welcomed!

little black dress
I mentioned that I'm going to Wilmington this weekend, and I wanted a fun casual dress to wear. I had in my mind what I wanted but couldn't find it anywhere, until I found it online at ASOS. I ordered it Tuesday night and it's already been delivered thanks to $12 2-day shipping -- which is a great deal if you ask me. I can't wait to share what I picked {coming to the blog next week}, but now I'm wishing I'd add this LBD to my shopping cart as well. Don't be surprised if it shows up here soon.

Cheers to the weekend!



  1. Sounds like I definitely need to go to Cassis! I've been to Paris before and it's pretty but that looks amazing! And love that spring outfit! It's skipped right over spring and gone straight to summer here but those jeans and that sweater are perfect. Happy Friday!

  12. That breakfast shake sounds amazing! Love Cassis, too! And that outfit is amazing. xo

  13. If you find it hard to immediately drop all sweets, start off slow! Try chocolate dipped strawberries or another fruit. Another thing I like to do to replace normal ice cream is make brazen banana ice cream! Just blend a banana and stick in the freezer. Add some nuts on top & voila!
