Motorcycle Boots

We went to the movies tonight (Warm Bodies, I loved it!) and one of the characters had a pair of cute, lace up, motorcycle boots. Then, as we were leaving, I noticed a girl with another cute pair. I've been eyeing moto boots for a while now, but I'm officially obsessed.

I want a really casual, slightly rugged pair. Leather, of course, and something that laces up and preferably can be folded down.
Originally I was thinking black, but now I'm kind of torn between black, cognac, and a light tan. Maybe one of each...
I think those last 2 pairs are my favorite. Now that I've got that figured out, who is going to buy me them?

Fashion Friday: A week of pink and red

Yup, I dressed up for Valentine's Day all. week. long.

I'm a sucker for themed outfits. I didn't blog about it (I should've), but I did 12 Days of Christmas outfits prior to Christmas. It was a blast!
Anyways, I made a point of wearing all red and pink this week to go with my Valentine's nails. I'm pretty sure no one noticed, but I really enjoyed being festive all week.

I know, there's two of today's outfit, I just cant help but laugh at my face in the 2nd one. Oh and here's my pretty flowers from my Dad.

Happy Valentine's Day!

I hope you all had a very sweet Valentine's. I started my morning with a pink chocolate-strawberry smoothi, received a gorgeous bouquet from my amazing Dad, and watched hockey and ate take out with my valentine, T. We didn't exchange any gifts as we treated ourselves to a  NHL hockey game and ice skating last weekend.
However, if I were to make a wish list, it would look like this...
A trip to San Francisco

Happy Valentine's!

Wedding Wednesdays: Be Mine

Believe it or not, I looked long and hard for a Valentine's Day wedding that I loved (heck, even liked), and I found nothing! This one is pretty darn close. It's safe to say I love it.

First, how sweet are these red heart Valentine invitations? They even used an Ampersand!

Next, this reception venue is absolutely amazing. I would kill to have my reception dinner over looking New York City. Not only that, but I love the little heart garlands strung over all the chairs.

It looks like the Bride and Groom took an impromptu trip to the Shake Shack for a little treat, made for some fun photos.
There definitely doesn't appear to be a shortage of sweet treats at the reception either.
I really had a hard time narrowing down my favorites out of all of Carla Ten Eyck's incredible photos, here's my remaining favorites. 
Aren't the Groom's red socks rad?

Valentine cookies

Growing up, every year my mom and I would bake Valentine sandwich cookies. I wish I could find a picture...
This year I decided to attempt them with the almond flour and coconut oil my parents sent me. I used this recipe which was super easy and pretty tasty.

They're no where near as pretty as the usual ones mom and I would make, but they're a lot better for you. Something about the almond flour makes them turn out dark, as I can assure you they are not actually burnt. 

I also used the oven method for making some hard boiled eggs and had an excuse to use my pretty egg holder.
