iCovet Fridays, v.3

Here’s what I’m coveting this week:

90′s Music

I blame this on Something Borrowed, which features a scene with a great 90′s cover band playing some of my absolute favorite childhood songs. Since seeing the movie (and listening to Hey Jealousy and Hows it Going to Be on repeat), I’ve spent way too much of my free time (read: the few minutes between when I finish work and pass out) googling “top songs of the 90′s” and taking trips down memory lane.

Dates with the Girls

[Yeslan, Margaret (aka Maggie) and myself]

We don’t really have the chance to do it often enough because of what I like to call “growing pains” but dates with the girls make my life feel fuller. There’s nothing like Margaret’s work stories (oh hey Maggie!), Yeslan’s to-the-point questions, Laura’s budgets, Larissa’s side eyes, and Allie’s vino. Side note for my girls: we need to do better at group pictures. #Wompwomp.



Entirely obsessed. Entirely. Pinterest is a “virtual pinboard” and community where people collect images across the web that are inspiring, amusing, or just a little weird. If you can’t tell by the ruffles and flowers, my collections tend to be on the girly side. Looking to join? Leave a comment with your email for an invite!

Whats on you coveting this week?

iCovet Fridays // v.2

Here’s what I’m loving this week:

Cocktails with Belle

I had the opportunity to attend Cocktails with Belle this week and it was such a treat! Being surrounded by beautiful black women all aspiring to do huge things was just my idea of a great Monday night!

ink48 – A Kimpton Hotel

Cocktails with Belle was held at ink48‘s Press Lounge on the 16th Floor. With a super sexy interior, stunning views of the city, the most delicious Peach Cosmopolitan I’ve ever tasted, it took the edge off a rough Monday in the office. My girl, AllieVino and I made a vow to come back immediately. See you soon, Press Lounge!


I found out about about.me by Julia Allison, who was working closely with the brand when they first launched. It’s a great little website that allows you to make a completely free splash page about you. I recommend it to everyone wanting to buy a domain for themselves but can’t quite get up the courage. With lovely backgrounds and a super easy to follow set up process, it’s a great little tool for building yourself as a brand.


for the record, i hate this song. but it’s friday…. 
also, i’m positive those kids aren’t old enough to drive, let alone in a convertible.

I don’t know about you, but for me the month of May has been full of overtime, no sleep, yelling clients, and LONG conference calls. It’s Friday afternoon and I’m counting down the minutes until my weekend. I hope you are too!
