Good Morning

If you ask me, the best part of a three-day weekend is a four-day work week. That having been said, I was perfectly fine with rising and shining this morning. Catching up on the things I set aside in favor of lounging and dining this weekend, goes much smoother with a view and some fresh morning air.

These photos were taken at The Westgate Hotel in downtown San Diego a couple of weeks ago. I worked a bit, I relaxed, I watched a little television, I took a bubble bath (yes, bubble bath is one of the toiletries provided in the rooms). Frankly, I was genuinely sad to check out of this lovely, spacious, unique space.

Done and Done

If you were anywhere near a rounder in the back, far left corner of the Nordstrom Rack in Denver Colorado yesterday- you may very likely have been witness to a crazy girl jumping wildly in place while simultaneously trying to muffle a roar of cheers and laughter!! A huge part of what makes this score so spectacular is that unlike some of my other epic finds, I've never actually made an effort to track these down at a discount.

I've admired the J Brand Houlihan for months, from afar- in every fashion publication and celebrity lifestyle magazine. Having always been a fan of cargos, the skinny low-rise cut, combined with the detailed placement of the stitching and the extra long ankle zipper, made these the Holy Grail of all cargos for me. An audible gasp, followed by a mass text to those who could empathize with my euphoric moment and I was deliriously racing to the register. Unexpected Retail Mission Accomplished!!

Ladies, a trip to your local NR would be worth the gas if you've had your eye on these. Amazing fit and a great find at 60% off Rack tag- $35 total, out the door (Original Retal $230)

Hit And Run

I'm off the booze
Emergen-C packets are my best friend these days
Gonna see my Gods next weekend
Got some new ink last weekend (Photos to follow, once healed)
Got enough Marriott Reward Points for a week somewhere
Got enough Rapid Reward Points to get me there

I can't stop listening to these tunes:

Cold War Kids: Sermons
Blonde Redhead: Love or Prison
Adele: Rolling in the Deep
Silversun Pickups: Three Seed
The Smiths: Bigmouth Strikes Again
Feist: The Intuition
Bloc Party: Talons
Metric: Empty
Florence and the Machine: Howl
Interpol: Rest My Chemistry
Santogold: Creator

On my way to Boulder, CO for some kayaking this weekend. Best!!
