Birthday Bragging

Well, the title kind of says it all. It's been exactly one week since my birthday partying and the last of my gifts have arrived. I must say, my family and friends know me so, so, well. Birds, owls, yellow, grey, vintage magazines. They just get me. So here, enjoy my photo brags :)

 1960's Vogues
Paper cutting my amazing, talented friend did
 Baseball game
 Harry Potter in 3-D at the Imax

 T is kind of a creeper!
 Wonderful owl print and the owl I've named Herring (for his fabulous herring bone fabric)

Fashion Friday: Emma Watson

Thank you Harry Potter for making this gorgeous girl famous. I'm a fan of Harry Potter but even more so, Emma Watson. The girl is gorgeous and she has impeccable taste in clothes. She looks stunning with her hair log and full or more recently, chopped off in a cute Twiggy-esque 60's pixie cut. Oh, and she pulls off red lips so perfectly.

I found all the images via an image search but most are from Vogue, Teen Vogue and Vogue Italia

Wedding Wednesday: Escort cards

I didn't forget you last night! My computer just decided it longer wanted to work? I tried restarting and that didn't work. However, it's doing alright today.

When it comes to receptions I'm a huge fan of assigned seating. I understand people's reasoning for not but personally, I prefer it. Here's just a few cute escort cards I've seen.
My favorite is the map one!

Sorry I'm lacking links, I've saved them before I started citing sources. I'm quite certain they're all from The Knot though.

Happy Birthday to me! It's been such a wonderful Birthday weekend but I'm too tired to actually post so, goodnight!

Birthday weekend!

Yup, I'm going to brag. Tomorrow (wait, technically today, the 17th) is my birthday! I kicked off the Bday celebration with a Diamondback/ Dodgers game yesterday. T got us some great seats at a great price and I was able to enjoy some beer, a hot dog and pretzel with cheese. Our team lost but it was still a good time. Today we went and saw Harry Potter in 3-d on the Imax, quite the experience! I rather loved it. Then we had dinner at one of my local favorites, Chelseas Kitchen   followed by some drinks at our local, favorite pub where I got serenaded by the singer. He was quite the riot. So far, awesome birthday! Can't wait to see what tomorrow has in store for me. Pictures tomorrow!

Sorry this is so dear diary-ish :P

Fashion Friday: Top Knot love.

Yes, it's Saturday, Saturday night to be exact. I've been a slacker but I really wanted to post this so here it is. Top knots are getting increasingly popular and I'm really loving them. Now, I never (ever) wear my hair up in public (it makes me feel self conscious) but I do wear my hair up around the house and the top knot has been my go to lately. Firstly, me rocking the top knot then a whole bunch of perfect inspiration!
