spring obsessions.

The weather has been absolutely gorgeous here lately, and it's been a perfect kickoff for spring. The winter boots and scarves are officially stored. Hello sunshine, pastels and, of course, March Madness.

best holiday o' the year.

In honor of my favorite country, culture and day of the year - and yes, I am biased
as an Irish gal myself - I decided to celebrate the holiday early with the following treat. It made me nostalgic of our last visit to the Emerald Isle, pictures below. 

Happy St. Patty's - Slรกinte!

white chocolate raspberry scones.

One of the best things to bake on a lazy weekend is scones. They're perfect for mixing interesting flavors - and a great excuse for having dessert for breakfast. Here is one of my 
favorite discoveries of late.

vintage specs.

In my search for a new pair of glasses, I really wanted a vintage-inspired style but didn't want to steal from grandpa. Luckily a friend told me about Warby Parker, and I must say, I'm obsessed.

Ordering glasses online may seem a bit risky - but luckily they let you rent 5 pairs of them to try before you decide on a pair. I decided on the Thatcher in black, picture below.
