Love Story meets Viva La Vida


Have you had the chance to listen to this song? Jon Schmidt combined two recent hits into a piece that gives me non-stop goosebumps. Love love love.

Read more about the song here.

(Found through Naomi at The Rockstar Diaries. She’s another blog crush – have you checked out her Here’s to Happiness feature? Puts a smile on my face every time.)


And the winner is…



#27, Natalie!

I Think I’m in Love: Pudding and the Paper Bag Princess


Three things I love more than life itself:

1. J. Crew

2. People of the witty persuasion

3. J. Crew

If you feel the same way, you simply MUST check out Pudding and the Paper Bag Princess. Her J. Crew Math posts are the best things ever.

Here’s a recent one from her blog:



= Cascading petals sweater, $88.00 USD
( = a vampire-repelling hot mess, but I kinda likes it)


I think I’ve got a major blog crush. Seriously, look at this one and read the tag labels underneath. HILARIOUS.


Update – Kat


Remember Kat?

Kat already had beautiful hair, but wanted a little change. An overwhelming 91% of you voted for Kat to add some bangs to the mix and here’s the result!

Doesn’t she look great? She also followed the advice to stop highlighting and celebrate her beautiful rich brunette color. Kat says:

Your advice to go to one color – GENIUS. I love the all dark hair now. it’s much more glossy and looks healthier and totally easier to manage with no highlight appointments.

Looking gorgeous, Kat!
