I Love LuLus

I spent my evening at LuLus in search for pretty dresses. There are so many delicious treats, it was hard to choose. This is my order...

Intuition Dress in Black

I was thinking it would be fun and very useful (for me) if you could let me know how you would accessorize, what shoes and how you would wear your hair/make - up if these lovelies were in your closet! Thank you my BBFs! You are loved.

On that note, I am off to dream about Edward Cullen biting me. ;) Hahaha. Good night my lovely love love loves!

D & G for Fall

I know it's drought season and most of you are basking in that delicious summer heat. I am assuming the last thing on your mind is fall fashion because you are sporting your maxi dress, sunnies, flippy flops and ultra tan skin. But for me it's a little different. Sure there has been a couple days where it has gotten up to the 90's and it was hot as hell. That I don't like. I am sort of a temperature snob and need a constant 77 degrees to be my best, most beautiful self (ok, ok, there is a fluctuation of a few degrees and I stay happy ;0)).

Today is another one of those sweatshirt wearin' mid July days and it feels like I should be cuddled up under a blanket sipping hot cocoa by the crackling fire. Or I should be slow cooking a roast and sipping on red wine just to warm up the crisp air. Those are things I enjoy in the fall/winter months.

Instead I am day dreaming. Get a load of D & G's Fall Fashion Line. I kid you not, I started drooling when I saw this add from Neiman Marcus in my inbox. Now, on a bankers salary I unfortunately won't be able to go all shopaholic style and indulge. Sad face. However, this is definitely part of my fall fashion inspiration board!

Cherry Crumb Cake & 2 D-LISH Giveaways!

I had no idea how much I loved cherry season until I moved to this area. Look at what I did today, I am so stoked on this because I am many things but a baker I am not... or maybe I am now...



6 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
3/4 cup sour cream
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup coarsely chopped pitted fresh cherries, tossed with 2 tablespoons flour


6 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
Heat oven to 350°. Grease and flour a 9-inch round cake pan.
With an electric mixer, cream 6 tablespoons of butter and 3/4 cup granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Slowly beat in the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in the vanilla extract, almond extract, and sour cream until blended.

In another bowl, combine 1 1/2 cups flour, baking powder, soda, 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Slowly beat the flour mixture into the batter just until blended. Fold in cherries. Spoon into the prepared baking pan.

Combine 6 tablespoons of butter with 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup granulated sugar, 3/4 cup flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, 1/8 teaspoon salt, and pecans. Mix well. With fingers, crumble the streusel mixture evenly over the cake batter.

Bake the cake for 45 to 50 minutes, or until a toothpick or cake tester inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.

Serves 8 to 10. Enjoy!

Now down to business. There are a couple fab giveaways I am excited to let you in on...
  • Robin over at Threadbear Thoughts has this sweet pinapple necklace she brought back from Charleston just for the giveway! Go. Enter. ASAP!
  • Alya at Pomegranate and Patchouli is giving away some jeans, umm hello... do I even need to tell you to Go. Enter. ASAP?!?!

But before you do... leave me some blog lovin' because it brightens my day! I hope your Sunday Funday was full of laughter & happiness!

just a little bitch

Summer just isn't the same in Oregon. I am in need of a SoCal beach day/week/month/forever ever.

Kisses & misses to all you dolls! Life isn't as rough as I make it seem, I have been doing my share of summer fun. But those beach days were fantasical.

I've missed you!

I have been horrible with the bloggin' these days, my apologies to you all. Here is my vow to be better, I am not going to commit to a certain amount of blogging per week because that would take the joy out of being inspired and just doing it! If I feel like I HAVE to do something my procrastinator inside me kicks in and I don't wanna.

This is a random post with a few of the things that have me intrigued. Chanel guitar, uh hello my pretty. This makes me want to be all Joan Jett and rock out with my c*ck out!!! I am going to start getting back into playing guitar because of this little gem! Ooooh la

These Studded sandals from Pixi Market are just makin' me wish I was more rocker. KeeKee like.

4th of July is coming fast and furious, how excited are you?!?!? My bestie is coming from Idaho to The Hood, this will be fun, fun, fun! Our plans will include but not be limited too... drinking, bbq'n, parade watchin', fireworks at the Marina, live music and of course laughing 'til we cry! What are your plans?

And last but not def. not least. NEW JEANS! Last weekend I splurged on some Citizen of Humanity Kelly Stretch jeans, they are perfect. I am not at all hestitant to say they make me look bootylicious! However, I could not find a picture of them to share but as I was searching I found these COH Dita Petite in Dark Paris and now I am lusting. Found at Pink Mascara. Am loving the flats she is wearing too.

Hope all is well in blogland! I miss you all and hope to be on here more in the future. Remember to always be safe and always have fun. Misses & kisses <3>

PS Blogger is such a DICK! Sorry just had to get that out.
