leia beila jewelry

jeans and tank: american eagle, flats: dsw, kimono: francesca's,
necklace: leia beila

i had the pleasure of meeting the adorable aimee, 
designer and creator of leia beila jewelry, last summer.
i was fascinated by her jewelry line and desperate to take 
home one of her pieces. 
after lusting over numerous rings and necklaces, 
i chose the above crystal necklace to purchase;
i could not be happier! 

aimee started her company in 2010 after graduating from 
cornish college of the arts. 
each piece is handmade in seattle, using the highest quality, vintage
and repurposed materials.
to see more of aimee's collection, you can visit her website here.

below are a few items currently on my wish list!

aimee, leia beila truly is a work of art!
thank you for letting me share it on this little blog.

cherry blossoms & happy hour(s)

dress: forever 21, leggings: american apparel, sweater: urban outfitters, 
boots: thrifted

when did these pretty cherry blossoms start to sprout?
though cold, it seems that spring is starting to take root in this city.
i could not be happier! 
while i love my boots, scarves, and flannel, 
i think i am a spring and summer girl at heart.

willie and i often go through phases when it comes to our eating habits.
we will cook, grocery shop regularly, and strive to
create healthy meals (aside from my daily dose of oreos),
for weeks at a time. 
and then something will change; we will start 
eating out again, and again, and again.
our new favorite routine is to enjoy the regular happy hour.
we have been trying to visit a variety of locations, sample
the happy hour menus and select our favorite!
last weekend, we visited black bottle.
i could not get enough of the broccoli and chicken, cherry flatbread.
both items were delicious! 
black bottle, we will definitely be back.

happy friday, everyone! i hope you have a wonderful weekend,
and thank you for visiting this little blog.

clothes before bros

tee: target, metallic skirt: lucy and lyla, flats: nordstrom rack,
bracelet: h&m

a girlfriend of mine sent me a picture of this tee from target;
upon seeing it, i said 'i have to get this!'
though silly, i love the message.
silly shirt + shiny, metallic skirt = the perfect outfit combination. 
happy almost friday, everyone!
