Life Lately...Eat and Read

"It's a soft day,"as the Irish would call it. In my opinion, there's no better time to curl up with a good book and some comfort food!

Trendsetter: "Hello, World" Sneakers

The Sailor recently ordered some new kicks. Without consulting me first. And that's fine. Buuuut, when they arrived, I was a little surprised....

Hello mother, hello father. Greetings from camp...

Last week the Sailor came home with a 12-pack of Sierra Nevada. Regular occurrence. No big deal. But this 12-pack caught my attention.

February's Find: poshlocket

So friends, we've hit the beginning of February. Well, we're almost a week into February to be exact...

"Everything around is dead, the trees black and frozen so that the appearance of green shoots two months hence seems preposterous, the ground hard and cold, the snow dirty, the winter hateful, hanging on too long." -Anna Quindlen, One True Thing

Sorry. Not so uplifting, but it's accurate for the Northeast. I don't know about you, but I am ready for some of this cold, gray weather to disappear and bring in some of this pretty stuff:

Although I'd really prefer this:

We spring ahead in about a month, and the days thankfully will become longer and brighter. In the meantime, we have to things other than sunshine and ocean breezes to find joy. Today's sparkle comes courtesy of Lily Marek, the style maven behind Lily Says Go

Adorable right?! If anyone is allowed to complain about the cold weather, it's Wisconsin-based Lily! She's recently replaced her darling wardrobe pics with photos of Life's Little Luxuries including jewels from poshlocket

At $25-$50 each, poshlocket pieces are a steal! Here are a few of my favorites:

Alice Dreamland, no longer available

Organic Disc Ring, $28
Looks so similar to Alexis Bittar

Blair Pave Link Bracelet, $38

Delia Blue Crystal Ring, $20

There are still a few gems left in their End of Year Sale -- Even better bargains! Hit poshlocket for happiness!
