I could see myself pedaling through Amsterdam on these. Preferably, with a basket full of bread and flowers!

Can't Put Down...

Read: The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. It is everything a thriller should be. Stieg Larsson, author of the book links powerful connections between narratives leaving the reader with a thick, juicy mystery. What should have been a two day read, actually took me much longer (which I hate to admit), so no matter how much time you have or don't have, it's worth sitting down for this one.

The first chance I get next week, I am running to see the movie.

Great article on the film: The New Yorker

Perfect Lingerie

Natural Beauty

I don't think there is anything more beautiful than natural beauty and model/entrepreneur Josie Maran is doing her best to encourage women to go natural when it comes to cosmetics. Maran's new spring collection launched the "I am" campaign, encouraging women to finish the statement: "I am..." on her website
Josie Maran cosmetics is cruelty-free, comes in recyclable packaging and uses organic aragan oil and eco-friendly ingredients.
Products can be found at Sephora.

One of my best girlfriends just got engaged last weekend!
She is the first one of my really great friends to get married, so this is very exciting!

If you're engaged there are some great wedding ideas on Southern Weddings and Martha Stewart Weddings.

I loved Sienna Miller's choice of dress at this year's Met Gala.

Crave Cupcakes

I have now had the pleasure of indulging in Crave Cupcakes twice since moving to Houston. I'm not even a huge lover of cupcakes and never in my life did I imagine any place could top all the cupcake bakeries New York has to offer.

But Crave in Houston takes the cake. Their homemade desserts are free of preservatives and hydrogenated oils. They come in a variety of flavors with my favorites being strawberry and coconut.
