Study Humor.

Alert: This post is going to be full of nerd-humor... but more than just your average nerd humor.  I'm saying the humor of this post is absolutely relative to (a) the subject matter (Sales); and (b) to how absolutely fried my brain is from a month of studying.  So, be warned... you may not find this funny AT ALL.

That said, these are the following hilarious things that Emanuel Law flash cards are teaching me about Sales (UCC Article 2)... yes, that parenthetical is contained on the outside of the box... for those of you not familiar with  "law lingo" that's akin to putting a sticker on a banana that reads, "fruit."  I knew these flash cards were going to be entertaining upon opening the box.

1. Mnemonic for Acceptance between Merchants: MALE LOOn (Material Alterations; Expressly Limited; Offeror Objects).

2. "The Frankenstein Candy Company writes to the Herman Munster Sweet Shop, stating: "Will have 1,000 gummy mummies..."

3. Sam Shyster is a sales manager at the Krullen Heartless Appliance Store...

4. Madame du Pompadour Bathroom Fixtures Company enters into a contract with the House of Whoopee Wholesale House...

5. Park & Tiquetts are makers of a populer game, Oligopoly

6. Mnemonic for four principle types of warranties under the UCC? MET FloPPy (Merchantability; Express; Title; Fitness for a Particular Purpose.)

I'm going bananas...


My sister, Maggie, is pretty much the coolest person I know.  
She may be 5 years younger than me, but we absolutely communicate with similar heart, wisdom, and independence.  She's creative, loving, and just down-right awesome.  I'd love to go through the millions of things that make maggie "totes awes," but unfortunately articles 2 and 2A of the Uniform Commercial Code are calling my name.  
I leave you all with a video my sister and I find absolutely hilarious...

Good Luck finishing up your last week of your sophomore year of college!  I can't wait to see you soon (well, not that soon... but you know...)

"Rate My Professor"

Dear Andrew Pollis,

I give you an A++ :)

Friends that Fill my Heart with Happy


H-Bomb, is like, awesome.  I've been told that I use that word maybe too much.  Perhaps I do.  But she's actually awesome.  Amazing.  Fabulous.  Absolutely fabulous, if you will.  I'd take the time to do a list here as I have with other great friends, but honestly, it's 8:25 PM and I'm only half-way through studying for my Criminal Procedure Course.

But, as I took time from studying to have a grab and go dinner with this girl, I have to take time out just to let you all know how fantastic she is.  H doesn't care that I have a gravy addiction.  H doesn't care that all I want to eat is bacon blue cheeseburgers.  She's a super feisty strong woman and I love her to bits.

That's all- gotta learn more about Grand Juries.  (I was going to do a real hilarious (that's a relative term) joke here about the jury being in on how awesome heather is... but then I decided not to... but then I decided that I would mask how dumb and silly I am by including it in a parenthetical hypothetical addition, so that it would seem that I was poking fun at myself when really I just wanted you to read my lame joke)... Yup, brain's fried again- I'm taking a test in 12 hours.  This is going to be great (again, relative).


Satire at Its Best

Happy Study Break Number 1.  I'm far into Criminal Procedure II studies at this moment, (the last flash-card written stated, 'to Prosecute or not to Prosecute') but took a little facebook/youtube break because I'm convinced that if I didn't, the world would stop spinning... Well, my social world, at least.

My fabulous friend posted this on his facebook wall and I couldn't help but click and watch.  The clip is a  little political/social humor; and a lot of a really good message.  I'm sick and tired of all sorts of people being treated differently because of their background, religion, sexual orientation, race, socio-economic standing, what-have-you.  I hate the ironic stance that so many politicos take on the topic of gay marriage.  I think that the kid in the clip points out some of those ironies in a very eloquent, albeit amateur way.

P.S. Closing Arguments in Perry v. Schwarzenegger are set for June 16th of this year.  This is likely to be a landmark cases addressing Prop 8, same-sex marriage, and the laws that ban it.  Read (and think) about the case here or here.

Why I Shop Online...

...because then I can't feel the leather next to my foot and see the cuteness and know for sure that they will fit and be the most absolutely perfect addition to my closet.

After picking up my dress for Barrister's ball today (pics and stories to follow) I ran into Nordstrom's real fast because I was completely out of perfume.  Does the running out of perfume seem to sneak up on anyone else as completely out of the blue as it does me?  As I was there, I decided that I had already put off studying Criminal Procedure II for a few hours, so what was a few more minutes perusing through the shoes...

I'm an idiot.  Because I fell in love with these:

and these: 

and then these: 

There were of course others, but finally, and with much inner-dialogue, I was able to pull myself away from the shoe department and eventually departed with just my perfume.  I'm exhausted from restraining myself.  Time to start studying Criminal Procedure...

I Miss 2008.

Totally forgot about this gem from the 2008 presidential election.
"we can't have that..."

 Given the events of the past year and-a-half, thank goodness things turned out the way they did.  I don't necessarily agree with all of Obama's decisions and I especially don't agree with most of his fiscal policies, BUT I am definitely glad that he is my President.

P.S. I think Sarah Palin has become even crazier:,2933,591654,00.html

Smells in the Library

The Following Conversation just took place in the Case Law Libs. I lol-ed:

(S and Aa start sniffing the air, S gets a smile on her face, A takes off her headphones and joins the sniffing) 

A: what is that?

S: I don't know, but it smells good
A: hmm...
S: (quietly) I hope it's not pee
A: What? What did you say?
S: I said, "I hope it's not pee..." because that would be gross if I thought pee smelled good.

Our brains are officially turning to mush... NBC's The More You Know scare-mercials had it wrong: The picture below is not your brain on drugs-
This is your brain on law school.

Graduation Gifts.

I realize that it may be presumptuous to ask my friends and family for more graduation gifts.  As Kendal reminded me yesterday, this is like, the 3rd time we've done the whole "graduation" thing for me.

However, I have found something that I absolutely need.  Not only to celebrate my graduation, but more importantly to carry me through the dreaded, DREADED Texas bar exam that is soon about to take over my life.

I present to you the Handpresso:

Too Similar for Comfort.

(from CNN) -- Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer on Friday signed the state's immigration bill into law. It is considered to be among the toughest legislation in the nation. The bill requires police in her state to determine whether a person is in the United States legally, which critics say will foster racial profiling but supporters say will crack down on illegal immigration.The bill requires immigrants to carry their alien registration documents at all times and requires police to question people if there is reason to suspect that they're in the United States illegally. It also targets those who hire illegal immigrant day laborers or knowingly transport them.The Republican governor also issued an executive order that requires additional training for local officers on how to implement the law without engaging in racial profiling or discrimination."This training will include what does and does not constitute reasonable suspicion that a person is not legally present in the United States," Brewer said after signing the bill.Brewer also stated, "As committed as I am to protecting our state from crime associated with illegal immigration, I am equally committed to holding law enforcement accountable should this stature ever be misused to violate an individual's rights." She added that the law would probably be challenged in courts and that there are those outside Arizona who have an interest in seeing the state fail with the new measure."We cannot give them that chance. We must use this new tool wisely and fight for our safety with the honor Arizona deserves."What does the Arizona law do?Previously, officers could check someone's immigration status only if that person was suspected in another crime.Arizona's law orders immigrants to carry their alien registration documents at all times and requires police to question people if there's reason to suspect they're in the United States illegally.It also targets those who hire illegal immigrant laborers or knowingly transport them.

...Compare With...

The Reich Citizenship Law stripped persons not considered of German blood of their German citizenship and introduced a new distinction between "Reich citizens" and "nationals".
Hitler made a speech before the Reichstag in Nuremberg, introducing the laws and their alleged motivation, before the laws were formally read and proposed for adoption by Göring, the President of the Reichstag:
...Bitter complaints have come in from countless places citing the provocative behavior of Jews...a certain amount of [conspiratorial] planning was involved....[To prevent] vigorous defensive action by the [Aryan] people, we have no choice but to contain the problem through legislative may be possible, through a definitive secular solution, to create a basis on which the German people can have a tolerable relationship with the Jews.... This law is an attempt to find a legislative solution....if this attempts fails, it will be necessary to transfer [the Jewish problem] ... to the National Socialist Party for a final solution.
Legal discrimination against Jews had come into being before the Nuremberg Laws and steadily grew as time went on; however, for discrimination to be effective, it was essential to have a clear definition of who was or was not a Jew. This was one important function of the Nuremberg laws and the numerous supplementary decrees that were proclaimed to further them.  Their passports were required to have a large "J" stamped on them and could be used to leave Germany - but not to return.  They had to produce them upon request.
From September 1941 all Jewish people living within the Nazi empire, including Germany, were required to wear a yellow badge, which had been required in Poland (under German occupation) beginning in 1939.


I CANNOT WAIT for September.  Seriously, Cannot. Wait.  This morning, all the CNN anchors whined about Goldman Sachs and "Wall Street" and recession.  Cool It.  I cannot wait for Wall Street II - a little movie magic about this recession thing.  (Also, I watched An Education Last night, holy moses, new fave film- blog post on that later)

Live. Love. Laugh

Live. Love. Laugh.

I had a conversation today with someone.  And it stuck with me.  Perhaps it was because my throat was a bit sore from yelling.  Perhaps it was because of the words he used.  But, perhaps it was because the subject matter we spoke about got just a little too deep for comfort.

He told me that in the world of this law school, in the midst of our post-grad reality, two of my friends managed to become the epitome of "frat boys" and that somehow I had become their sorority girl follower.  He called our behavior and "immaturity" a feat for law school and scoffed that in my last months of "university-living," I would choose to spend my time even conversing with these two.  He said that he lost respect for me after I told him that I was having fun.

After we finished the "conversation" and after the letters, "G.K.Y." finally stopped flashing in my head, I calmed down and write the following now:

Yes. To most everyone in this world I am superficial.  Not in a bad way, but in the way where not many to see the real me.  Most only see the surface.  I am perfectly okay with that.  I am okay with my surface personality and I am VERY OKAY with who I am.

As I type this post, I am not baring my soul.  I am not telling you what I really feel about this situation.  I'm not taking down the wall.  I don't use this blog as an outlet for emotion, and I never will.  I will use it to show you shoes I like, things I love, things I hate, and to tell you about my hilarious friends.  I take pleasure in making people happy. I like to look pretty.  I like to make people laugh.  I like to hang out with all sorts of people for a few weeks/months/years and make memories to cherish.  I like living.  I never want to have to conform.  I never want to apologize for my choices.  I'm never going to.  I am who I am, and I'm not perfect, but I'm PERFECTLY HAPPY with me.

The point of this blog post is to just say this: If you're doing something that makes you incredibly happy, no matter how small or how big it may be, keep doing it.  Our lives are measured in moments and memories, and how dull our existence would be if we tried to fit them into some pre-supposed outline?  I almost let someone get me down today because he tried to convince me that his way of thinking, and his self-proclaimed "right" way of life, was the only way.  The superior way.  But it's not.  And this isn't to say that my way is the only way to live, either.

But I know this: living and loving and laughing has never led me astray.  

Study Break: I Break for Shoes.

I've moved on to Piperlime in my search for amazing shoes.  I need some good summer shoes, as my collection of shoes from living in Cleveland the past 3 years consists of boots, furry boots, and yarn boots (you are welcome for the purchases, Ugg).  As I plan for my move to Texas, I need some shoes (read: Sandals) to prepare for the 9-month-long summers.

Today, I'm in Love with these:

The best, BEST part about all the Sandals featured today is that they are MUCH more reasonably priced than other featured shoes on my blog.

Enjoy reading and GET those toes painted- It's gonna be a Looooong Summer!

"Rate My Professor"

Last week, I stopped into the Law Clinic to say hello, check my mailbox, and update my advisors on certain aspects of my cases.  While in Andrew's office, he asked if I ever went onto Rate My Professor (dot com).  I told him not that often, but I did know of the site.

[insert back story: Andrew had just gone on to rate my professor and had seen the comments about the one and only, Jonathan H. Adler, and asked if I had commented on him on there [insert further back story: I have MUCH admiration for this professor: both as a professor, and as a Libertarian]]
After I left Andrew's office, this conversation, and the topic of rating professors, stuck in my mind.  As I sat down to continue my studies in the Library, I reflected back on my law professors I've had at Case.

Without sounding too sentimental and over-dramatic, I can honestly say that EVERY law professor I've had over the past three years has been great.  A few have been phenomenal.  As I sit, only 3 weeks from graduation, I extend my greatest thanks to the following professors for making my Law School Career absolutely fabulous: Cassandra Robertson (Civil Procedure); Jonathan H. Adler (Constitutional Law, International Environmental Law, Administrative Law); George Dent (Business Associations); Mike Benza (Death Penalty Issues).

Additionally, this list would not be complete without the following two professors, who not only taught me the fundamentals of civil litigation during my Law School Career, but taught me how to be a great attorney.  SO many thanks to Yuri and Andrew!!!  I'm going to miss you greatly!

Study Break: I Break for Shoes.

Bankruptcy had gotten far too convoluted for 8:45 pm.  

Trying to appear as the consummate "Study Warrior," (props to Brent for coining the term "Study Warrior") I still sit at my computer in the library staring fiercely into my screen and ever-so-often glancing at a book to drive those around me into a frenzy of stress.  But what I'm really doing- Shoe-Shopping.

I admit it... I've been into some pretty weird shoes lately.  Forgive me.  I think fashion is art.  I think kooky is beautiful.  And I think creative should be worn.

First Up: Camilla Skovgaard Chain-embellished Leather Sandals: 
A Little Luxe, a little Hardcore, a lot Amazing: Can be Purchased Here. I really need these for upcoming Law Prom.  They would go so well with my Navy Gown.  Hmm... 

Next Up:  OH MY HEAVENS I WANT THESE NOW, Chloe Multi-Strap Leather and Canvas Sandals; So bad ass. So great for everyday.  Sighs...

Seriously, this time- I'm actually considering emptying my savings in order to buy these... 3 years of Law School debt can go into default.  I don't EVEN care... Get them here.

reading week. pt. II

Every Semester, it's always the same story.  I start out reading week just outlining from my notes and the book, and then FREAK OUT and rush to find an Examples and Explanations, Nutshell, or other hornbook.  Welp, here we are again: 4 days from my Bankruptcy final and I'm on a 2-hour leash to the library's copy of the Bankruptcy E&E.  I never learn.  How helpful this would have been, oh I don't know, 2 MONTHS ago.  Sigh...  Lament... Etc. Etc....

Cleveland- I'm gonna miss you, Pt. I

Joakim Noah's Earlier Cleveland Bashing: 

“I don’t know about Cleveland, man, there is nothing going on. It’s bad, man.”
After that quote, Noah was asked whether his dislike for the city could be used as motivation in the series: “What, that Cleveland really sucks?”

22 April 2010


Earlier this week, I dedicated a post to the ever-lovely, Kate Gibson.  In addition to Kate, one of my other, larger-than-life law school friends is Andy "Geronimo" Geronimo.  That's his real name.  No, really.  

Without further ado, and much, much admiration for this person, I give you the "Top 5 Reasons Geronimo is Totes Awes:"

5. Track Jackets:  Not just anyone can pull off a track jacket.  Especially if that person is over the age of 20 and NOT on a track team.  But this kid, THIS KID can pull it off.  And he does it daily. (See above picture)

4. His love of felines.  Geronimo's love of cats is adorable.  He has dedicated a album to the lovely Zoe Dupont and has countless hours of videos of his precious love-muffin.  Not every guy can pull off a love of cats, but you, kitten, you can.

3. The Name, Geronimo- "one who yawns"... I kid you not.  (see photo of 'Geronimo' to the right- the prominent Native American leader and medicine man of the Chiricahua Apache who fought against Mexico and the United States and their expansion into Apache tribal lands for several decades during the Apache Wars.)  Geronmio has no ties to this guy other than the name.  But it's a great name for a great person.

2. The Hair.

His Affinity for too-Small Ladies' outerwear:  
There are, admittedly, no words.  But thankfully, there are many, many photos.  (included below for your viewing pleasure)  Enjoy.

Seriously, I'm gonna miss you bonkers!  Keep the Cleve real.

Being Green: Happy Earth Day (40th Anniversary)

Happy Earth Day!  In times where everything green = good (not to be mistaken for "greed is good" from the ever-relevant film, Wall Street) Earth Day almost slipped my mind this year.  Sadly, had Gilt Group not run earth-day specific sales today, I may have glossed over the day completely.  The first Earth Day was in 1970.  A time when oil flowed like water, environmental issues were almost forgot as they silently simmered on the back-burner, and Silent Spring had yet to "silence" rampant use of harmful pesticides in the U.S.  

How things have changed.  It seems as though every store, every spokesperson, and every ad-campaign these days triumphs the use of "green" products, going organic, and reducing our carbon footprint.  It is undoubtedly admirable that so many are becoming so much more conscious of the impact we have on the planet.  But, by the same token, we are never done.  Awareness does not equal conservation.  Awareness is only the first step to realizing any change.  Change comes through action.  

The following links and media are only a drop in the bucket of conservation and change- but a start to change.  Have a wonderful Earth Day and let it inspire choices and actions throughout the year.  

Seventh Generation's tips for "Greener Living"

1. Use natural-formula cleaners made from ingredients like biodegradable plant-derived surfactants, non-toxic minerals, and other safe ingredients. These cleaners won't leave toxic chemical residues around the house or pollute indoor air. And they conserve resources, too: If every household in the U.S. replaced just one 100-oz. bottle of petroleum-based laundry detergent with detergent made from plant-derived sources, we'd save 370,000 barrels of oil—enough to heat and cool 21,200 homes for a year.
2. Open your windows! EPA research has found that the air inside the average home is typically two to five times more polluted than the surrounding air outside thanks to tight energy-efficient construction that over time concentrates the toxins entering our homes. Flushing out those hazards with fresh air now and then will do a lot to keep Planet Home healthier.
3. Place welcome mats around doors to help remove particles and pollutants carried inside on shoes―one of the key ways toxins enter our homes. Clean these mats regularly. And consider asking friends and family to remove their shoes when they visit. Remember: if it isn't tracked into your home, you won't have to clean it!
4. Wash laundry in cold water and hang it out to dry. Approximately 90% of the energy we consume on wash day is used to heat the water we need. Dryers take another 6%. Saving this energy conserves resources, prevents pollution, and fights climate change, three things that make our world—and Planet Home—healthier places to live.
5. Use microfiber cleaning cloths. Compared to rags and disposable options, their millions of tiny microscopic fibers do a much better job of trapping and removing household soils and dust, the final resting place for many of the toxins that enter our home. With microfiber, you won't kick that stuff back into the air, and you won't need as much cleaning product either!

Study Music. Pt. II

Mc Solaar- La Belle et le Bad Boy:

Yesterday, I studied to Lady Antebellum.  Today, it's Jay-Z and the above Gem, French Rapper Mc Solaar.  I first heard this song during the last season of Sex and the City (When Aleksandr Petrovsky leaves Carrie at the art gallery and she runs off to her book party that has already ended, and then Petrovsky slaps her and then Big rescues her... but, that's a post for another day).  I LOVE LOVE LOVE studying to music like this that has a great beat.  As ridiculous as it sounds, my fingers need some sort of rhythm to type to, and this provides the perfect tempo.  And as a plus, I can't understand any of the lyrics.  I also love the below song- I just incorporated "la vie est belle" into one of my paintings-in-progress.  Happy Studying to those in the midsts of reading weeks and final exams; Happy listening to those of you who are not!

25(ish) Days Until Graduation

I'm gonna miss you, Paninis

Thanks, Commencement Committee! 
They're gonna make beautiful children someday.

Study Music.

Mmmm, such sweet voices.  Phenomenal harmonies.  Very apropos lyrics.

reading week.

Reading week is upon us here at the Law School.  Although it started with fun "in-class beverages" and copious amounts of pitchers at Paninis, things are about to get real.

For the next week, this will be our reality:

1. Copious amounts of coffee from one National Retailer; and

2. The Judge Ben C. Green "lawlibs"- or some other slightly academic study locales.

Good Luck to all studying for exams!  If you're lucky maybe Kate Gibson will make an awkward entrance into your study location! :)

top 5 reasons kate gibson is totes awes:

5. She's the star of a youtube video and an internationally-recognized spokeswoman for the exciting International Law Program at the law school: (enjoy.)

4. She's an avid wearer of Cardigans from this Place:

3. She is the GREATEST flixt-er (flirting text) of ALL time: "it was lovely seeing you out again as well."  In addition, Kate knows when to text... but more importantly when not to text.  "I'm Alive" does not warrant a respond flixt.  And she knows that.

2.  She is undoubtedly the cutest, little pocket friend of all time who only passes mild judgment when an un-named person just wants to drink cider all night.

She ended her law school career just as it began, awkwardly.  Kate walked into a law school class that wasn't hers, and abruptly turned back around.

Kate, I'm gonna miss you lots!  Also, be checking the mailbox regularly at your summer residence with Mr. Minue and perhaps there will be some exciting Texas treats for you! xoxo

When Finals Near.

For the past 5 semesters, whenever finals have neared in law school, I always wish that I was back at the LSE at the Underground or the Three Tuns, or other local Covent Garden bar, sipping on Strongbow and enjoying London in the Spring.  It just felt academic and lovely, and happy.

Here's to those memories, those feelings and my dear, dear friends!

I miss you all- and you, too, London!

Yash, Me, and Anja
Ames, Me, and Yash---->

"By Seeing London, I have seen as much of life as the world can show"

"When a man is tired of London, he is tired of Life; for there is in London all that life can afford"

Christina Hendricks was recently named by Esquire as the "Best-Looking Woman in America."  I concur.

How nice it is to have a semi-normal looking, curvy, curly, pale-ish, beauty beating out the kinds of Megan Fox and friends.

Cheers to you, Christina Hendricks, and Cheers to Women!

Sunday Thoughts

From the 'Onion'

Supreme Court Rules Death Penalty Is 'Totally Badass'

This semester, I had the pleasure of having class with, and writing for, Professor Mike Benza.  Mike teaches criminal law and several classes relating to the death penalty and habeas litigation.  Even though he has a full schedule of classes, Mike still practices and represents death row inmates in state court and in federal habeas corpus litigation.  Last semester, he argued in front of the Supreme Court of the United States.

I write this post today for two reasons: one, to share the above video that my colleague, and good friend, found a few weeks ago.  I am a sucker for satire and dark humor, and this may be the funniest and darkest thing I've seen in a long while.

I also write to bring a bit more depth to this blog.  Although it is fun to look at shoes and fashion, I am soon to be a law school graduate and (hopefully) a practicing attorney.  Throughout this semester my views of the death penalty have changed dramatically, and although I won't go into the "nitty-gritty" now, I bring this video to you to perhaps start discussions.

Have a wonderful sunday- enjoy the last few hours of this weekend before we plow into another M-F.

I need these Shoes!!!

Lanvin's two-tone leather sandals.  The acrylic heel put me off at first, it seemed a little a la stripper.  But the patent black and the nude and the low heel and the ankle strap, sigh, pure perfection... I need these.

Inspired by Net-A-Porter's current online mag, here is a tribute to a truly beautiful and inspiring lady, Grace Kelly:

Great Television. (glee)

Glee returned Tonight!


1. Jessica Simpson dig- Not awesome.  I feel extremely connected to Ms. JSimp- perhaps because we're both from the Dallas area, but perhaps because she's just awesome... Not a great dig. Do better, writers. Dig on Britney, or someone who actually make life mistakes. Don't dig on the girl that's just trying to be awesome.

2. The Doors? Awesome. Good Job, Finn.

3. All-American Rejects. Rachel, I love you. I love this song.  FANTASTIC!!! I can't get enough! Anthem. WOW!!!!

4. A little Lionel Richie? hmm... still thinking on this one- New kid, I don't know what I think yet either.  Not a great harmony yet between Rachel and Mr. Vocal Adrenaline.

5. EEEEK! Mr. SHUE and the guidance counselor- what's her name? I LOVE it... ohmigosh! I love HER and that she's a virgin! Cutest, Most Sweetest Moment of TV

6. Vocal Adrenaline, boo: It's like watching beige paint dry.

7. OH HOLY IDINA MENZEL!!! all bow down.  MR. SHUE, BOW!

8. "most the show choir directors I make out with are gay"

9. Beatles? Win of a song. Not a great arrangement. I'm not extremely impressed.  I think Rachel's emotions are distracting from the whole of the song, instead of adding too.  I also think the bows are overkill on the girls' dresses.

10. Sue Sylvester's Vogue?!?!  Oh my goodness GRACIOUS!!! I'm IN love!  Best part of the episode that wasn't part of the episode.  Actually, best part of this whole episode.

11. Madonna! Tune in Next week, gleeks!

Enjoy good television.

Online Shopping.

I could spend forever online shopping.  New obsession: Net-a-Porter and Vivienne Westwood Suede Pirate Boots. Sigh...


mornings are not usually a place of abounding luxe. they are frantic, hectic, and filled with sounds of alarms, cnn, water running, and the pitter-patter of heels. however, even in the most rushed of mornings, luxe can abound:

Despite knowing I'd be 25 minutes late to Sales with THIS GUY,  I took time to grab a Venti Non-fat, Misto (more coffee than milk).

As I'm sitting in class right now, that 5 minute stop into Starbucks was perfect and necessary.

breathe for the moments that take your breath away.

AM Blog Reading

I am part of the internet generation. Instead of morning paper reading at the breakfast table, I partake in the reading of blogs in bed. A blog I've been addicted to for the past several years is Desire to Inspire- an amazing design website featuring many, many photos of amazing interior designers and architects around the world. Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy!
