Hi, friends! It’s been a nutty week full of ups, downs and hilarity. Here are some things I’ve been digging this week throughout it all.

This week’s…

Take Care, Drake (every day, every week)

Xanadu, Original Broadway Cast (kind of hysterical)

Boys & Girls, Alabama Shakes 

Prada Candy

Capri Blue Jar Candle Citrine

C. Booth Ginger and Coriander Energy Body Cream

Black coffee (always)

Bolthouse Farms Green Goodness

Absolut Grapevine (Source)

Honey Nut Chex

Uncle Eddie’s Vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chobani and sliced banana

New Girl season finale (ended exactly the way I hoped it would! TOO good!)

SatC Season 2

Diane Kruger in Prada at the 2012 Met Ball 

That’s all loves!

Ciao for now,


Question: What are some of your favorite sounds, scents, sips, snacks and sights this week?

so happy to hear of a fellow alabama shakes lover!!! i had to write an album review of them for a class and i couldn’t get enough. i bet they would be so great in concert, too!

Sounds: birds chirping. Means its really getting close to summer! Also, anything Pitbull.

Sights: the mountains from my house. Absolutely gorgeous. Runner up is my dog rolling in very yard we pass on our walks.

Scents: my neutrogena overnight rapid wrinkle repair-weird, but I love it. Also, coconut body butter and my dogs feet. Christ, I’m sounding weirder by the second.

Sips: water. Fresh squeezed orange juice. Just about any microbrew.

Snacks: nuts. Quaker oatmeal squares. MANGO.

Two things: I haven’t been able to drink flavored vodka since high school… but the sound of your last sip (and the pretty bottle) may make me re-think my ways. I agree, Diane Kruger stuns on the Red Carpet. Always, always.

Oh, and a bonus third thing: Thanks for not spoiling the New Girl finale for me :) I cannot wait to watch it!

ahhh that absolute grapevine looks like such a deliciously good idea…which could lead to bad decisions :) And the picture looks like there is passionfruit in it??? Oh goodness….

Totally copying your idea and posting about this :)

F’yeah Alabama Shakes!!! Seriously, you are in my head always.

Also…every week is different. It’s really freaking amazing the way that happens. You know what I mean. Love you.

I have to agree with the New Girl finale. Love the show, loved the finale. Also loved Mad Men and Game of Thrones this week—some of my favorite episodes thus far!

Sounds: I’ve been listening to oldies all week. Makes me smile. :)

Sights: View from my office. SF is gorgeous when the weather is warm.

Scents: Anything I’m cooking. Can’t. Stop. Eating.

Sips: Green Smoothies. 1+ times daily.

Snacks: ANYTHING I can get my hands on.

P.S. I included you in my Kentucky Derby post!

Sounds: Uh, love me some Alabama Shakes! They are amazing in concert. SO GOOD LIVE. I’m also listening to a lot of St. Vincent. My sister just saw them in concert in Columbus and said she’s amazing. And…old school…..but INXS.

Sights: Ah, New Orleans. I’ve also been looking at a lot of MET ball pictures, mostly on

Scents: Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau so fresh

Sips: Cans of beer with cozies (everyone had these in New Orleans?!), water, green tea, coffee, and Diet Coke (dammit).

Snacks: Apple Cinnamon Chobani yogurt, whole grain Gold Fish, and gorp.

I’m obsessed with that Drake song. Obsessssssed. And I need to try that vodka! It sounds like it’s right up my alley!


11 Emily @ I'd Rather Walk May 10, 2012 at 11:30 am

Wicked Games by The Weeknd, Dr. Bronner’s peppermint bar soap, water with lemon, pomegranate seeds, the Hudson river from the 33rd floor

LOOOVED the New Girl finale!! #MEEPMEEP! Hilarious! The Absolute Grapevine vodka looks positively scrumptious!


13 Tamar May 11, 2012 at 12:26 am

I love this! My favorite sight: the last 12 dvr’ed episodes of Grey’s Anatomy that I haven’t had time to watch, and sip: la croix coconut seltzer, which has become my lifeline since giving up diet soda 2 months ago.


14 Lisa May 11, 2012 at 4:27 pm

I love Drake’s music. And New Girl season finale was awesome! I actually cried at the end, I’m such a wuss. I wish I had seen that vodka flavour last night, I just bought boring plain vodka, definitely not as fun. And I have been truly obsessed with coconut butter. It is pure bliss.


15 Sara K May 11, 2012 at 5:01 pm

Ahh I am in love with Prada Candy! That’s exactly what I am getting after my (now discontinued) YSL Parisienne runs out.
Sounds of the week: Where have you been- Rihanna (mainstream…I know)
Scents of the week: St Ives Triple Butter body wash
Snacks: Greek yoghurt with nutella and cookies.


16 Maddy May 13, 2012 at 6:34 pm

New rule: New Girl needs to never end. Ever.


17 Kelly @ Femme Fitale May 14, 2012 at 11:45 am

Love Bolthouse Farms. Which one is Green Goodness? I’m obsessed with the 100% Carrot!
