Why not kick off this MAYJAH blog ketchup with CATS IN SWEATERS?! This is sure to work perfectly with my "What to wear this fall" post coming soon. Adorbs! Thanks Pablo for the link. I hand-washed my hats and scarves this weekend while it was 106, dreaming of days of 96 degrees, which seem to be on the horizon. Woot!
I swear. I was on vacay and before that, ya know, preparing for vacay. I will be back with a post for EVERY DAY that I missed as well as announcing the AWESOME contribution winners for the big AAAD 500th post! It will be worth waiting for...starting tomorrow.
Hellooooo 490th post! Ahem, I have only ONE submission to my Send Me Your Awesomes contest and let's just say my mom already told me that she can't win or "it will look fixed." You have about a week or so to enter and win a PRIZE. No the prize is not a cat.
I knew I had a long day ahead and needed all the power I could find within at 6 am when I was waking up after another night of notalotasleep. So, natch, it was time to bust out the amazing pretty kitty striped tank I got over the weekend and rock the kitty princess power for my 9am meeting. I'm pairing it with black straight-leg jeans, black heels, this crazy necklace, and a bejeweled cardigan. My work partner told me I look sparkly. PURRFECT!
I guess I will have to wait until next week to debut my new Bowtie Cats Tank. I found this AMAZING jersey knit blazer at another teen store I hit the jackpot at, Charlotte Russe, last week which will pair with it perfectly. This is definitely my go-to warmup for fall and will be perfect over these awkward racerback tees. Only $30! A total must-have. But must I stand like the model? She's like so whatever.
Are you looking for some Cat Power? No not that Cat Power. Then why don't you snag the Royal Kitty Tank and see what kinda royalty prowess it brings you?
Feeling a little private about your cat power needs? Okay, fine, then just start your day behind this Cat Crest Shower Curtain and start there.
Greetings! Yesterday I LOL'd at this Facebook update by Swedish Chef:
Which natch, led me to search Swedish Chef on Etsy, where I found these must-have-for-my-newly-decorated-office paintings by Slugworth. These will align perfectly above some closet doors that needed some color and fit easily and affordably in some square Ribba frames from IKEA.
Don't see your state? She makes custom orders! And now in August, 10% of August Etsy shop profit will be donated to the National Wildlife Federation - Oil Spill Crisis. Love your state, help another. Win-win.
This is the order of states in which I have lived. Weeeee! Pia The Pig
For those of us who could use a little more notice than Facebook might provide in order to get our presents to the birthday gal or guy on time, this free birthday calendar download is just the ticket. viaaviedesigns
Allison and friends came over last night to witness the hot mess that is The Bachelorette. Let's just say I am very stoked for Bachelor Pad because that will be even hotter and even messier. YES.
Allison made these delicious lemon-lime bars that were delightfully refreshing. I found a few other recipes online that would pair nicely with them, dontcha think?
This peach grilled cheeseviaMacheesmo looks awesome even though I'm apathetic towards cheese. But, I do have some peaches that are ripening on my kitchen counter, I love arugula, and well, this just looks too interesting not to try.
That would go so well with these Lays chips which are awesome.
Also, if you haven't had the amazeballs that are pretzel M&M's, you need to try them. And then you need to make these. Fine, I'll make them. I was just telling my parents how I can't eat frozen yogurt or really anything chocolaty without having a pretzely dessert after that. Dessert after dessert? Yep.
Ok, so not everyone can have the sweet videographer who captures my Bat Mitzvah in April '94. I GET IT. But apparently the new trend is not a two or three or four hour video, but a 2-4 minute one. Gawd, we really have no attention spans anymore, huh? Well, I found two wedding videos posted this week. One, I love. One I find trying so incredibly hard that is makes me hateful. Tell me, what do you think? I won't tell you which one is which regarding my feeeeelings.
All I will say, is that the swing featured in the second video and much much more AWESOMENESS is made by my newest obsession, Ashley Meaders, who is also the genius behind this popsicle wedding I previously wrote about. SWOON!
