Sorry guys. I kind of went missing last week. It started off with three hours of sleep going in to Monday morning, and I mean, let’s be real- it was Monday. It’s not like it needed those minimal three hours to make it awful. The week proceeded to be full of a lot of new things, some good, some not, some of which I can’t wait to share with you. In time, we’ll get there.
Ah, this is the product of 1:27 AM. Such a great thing, learning and creating. I have been playing with brushes and pencils and all kinds of ditties in photoshop this week. Until then, enjoy these little bits of lovely that I have been keeping an eye on.
This has been a long time coming, guys. I made this in January last year, and have been making it for my “nanny family” ever since. It is a pretty big hit too, because there is never any left for me to blog about. I got ahead of the game this time, though. Made a second batch at one in the afternoon for a certain munchkin, who coincidentally, was not as stoked as her parents about this Greek awesomeness. Her loss. As far as she’s concerned, PB&J is killing it until the end of time. I respect that.

June is my favorite month. Something about it is new and bright and full of flowers and summer beginnings. I feel like it is the most feminine month, which may have to do with the fact that more weddings are held in June then any other month. Or, maybe it is that peonies are in season during May and June. Basically, June is my jam.
I woke up this morning and half expected to see tire marks on my face from the truck that I got hit by. I mean, shoot, today is hard. You know those days? The ones where you walk around with a bubble of pressure and weight and the moment you sit down you want to pass out? Yea, it’s one of those. It is a price I have to pay, however. Having a full time job and trying to start another doesn’t leave for much free time. But if we are being real honest, I don’t hate one second that I sit in front of that 27 inch beauty. I am a happy lady.
All of these recipes are pretty standard, the key is adding honey and cinnamon. After that, adding any fresh fruit or nuts is bonus! A helping of this and some kale salad keep me and my insides happy. :) TMI?
I feel so behind. Browsing design blogs and websites makes me feel like I have so much to learn and catch up on! Why am I only now falling in love with this? Why couldn’t I have gotten it together when I was at Penn State, which coincidentally, has one of the best graphic design programs around. No joke. Ah, live and learn.
The weekend is here! My roommate and I have been eagerly awaiting its arrival- we are going to Boston Calling, a music festival downtown. The first one in a while here in Beantown. Unfortunately, this weekend is calling for rain, every day. Ugh. C’est la vie! I guess I will have to go buy a rain coat. Sorry I’m not sorry.
We will still be loving life….hopefully. Enjoy your Memorial Day weekend! Make some burgers and spend time with people. Basically, be an American.
Finding out my taste, likes, dislikes, etc, has taken me quite a while. This year, and last, has proven to be an important time of discovery. In that, my bedroom has taken on many personalities, but we are finally reaching common ground on the subject.
Neutral, vintage, minimal, feminine, natural light. These are the things that make sense to me stylistically. So, I have been on the hunt for those particular pieces that resonate with me, and that I feel I can stand for a while. Decorating comes at a cost, friends. Why is life a giant checkbook flying away?
So in pure Lady & Like fashion, I have made a mood board that captures what I want to feel when I am in my room. Many thanks to Anthropologie for the goodies and Pinterest for the inspiration.
If there was ever a post that summed me up in pictures, at least when we are talking style, this is pretty much it. Casual, classy, simple, with a smidgen of sass. Can the panama hat count as sass? Making the executive decision and saying yes. This is my blog, so naturally it is a dictatorship. (My high school chemistry teacher used to tell us that. I didn’t do very well. )
Some friends and I have declared this Saturday to be “Common Hangout Day”, which basically means we are going to post up on a blanket in the Boston Common all day. This is what I found myself wearing, sitting on a tribal blanket reading a book and drinking San Pellegrino. Neutrals never die, and neither do dresses. Or Keds. So, this is pretty much the standard. Like, always.
