Happy Valentine’s Day weekend, friends! Hope you’re all staying toasty out there with the ones you love! What’re your plans for the weekend? Ours will likely involve a whole lotta flannel, because it is freezing out there! We may both attempt to go sledding, depending on the weather, because there is ANOTHER potential blizzard heading our way… I just don’t even know what to say any more.

Have a fantastic weekend! PS I want that thumb ring.

rkv // this little list on how to make some mulla on Ebay is so great! I think I may actually give it a go!

cct // baha nail color names are pretty ridiculous

rkv // I found this post on Valentine’s Day from a dude’s perspective to be pretty cute — go figure they all involve being low-key and just spending time with another. Sounds about right, considering my guy and I will be enjoying a wonderful pizza dinner for two 🙂

cct // Well this sounds delicious! Fried lemons, who knew?!

rkv // Om nom nom homemade chia seed jam

cct // I see a fun typography project this spring, anyone have a blank wall?

rkv // The best way to reheat a slice of pizza. Man, I talk about pizza a lot, huh?

cct // I’m all ears on help in the landing-a-great-job department, and these tips are very insightful! I can’t wait to see what else she’s got to share!

Happy Friday

rkv // Helpful little read for fellow bloggers

Sweet Beats // February ’14

In honor of St. Valentine, I bring you a fresh new playlist about love, being coupled, and all the great things that come along with that. For you singles out there – don’t worry, there’s one coming up soon that embraces doing your own sweet thang. Now, before I present you with this playlist I feel I should warn you that yes, I did indeed put the Ramones and Miley Cyrus on the same mix. It just felt so right.

Casual vs Glam // Valentine’s Day

gm_ValentinesOutfit_CasualGlam

Valentine’s Day can cover so many different scenarios…dating someone, sort of dating someone, not dating someone…but don’t let any of those stop you from dressing cute for whatever your situation. Whether it’s a date night, a night at home, drinks with girl friends, or a date with your couch, Valentine’s Day/Night is only as good as you make it! We’ve sort of stopped giving into the idea of what you’re “supposed” to do or wear on this holiday, and have embraced the idea of feeling comfortable and confident while you celebrate the love in your life (even if that love is yourself!).

{Casual Look} H&M blouse // H&M skinnies // Jcrew Factory Bracelet // H&M earrings // Essie nail color in Poor li’l Rich Girl // Old Navy flats

{Glam Look} Echo scarf // Forever 21 sweater // Asos clutch // Zara skirt // Bauble Bar bracelet // Target tights // Seychelles heels
