let us cry from the laughters

Friday, November 18th, 2011


The holidays are finally upon us…which means family, food and travelling. Since we last spoke, I’ve packed up and moved down to Austin, TX.  Which is the perfect excuse to find some new luggage.  I’m not sure if I want to go with a whole set, or simply get a carry-on and something a little larger. Decisions, decisions.  I have some ideas though:

Orla Kiely Large Car Cabin LuggageI totally dig the Orla Kiley car bags line.  I would really love to get the whole set, but I also need to purchase some Christmas presents for the family and it doesn’t all fit into the budget :)

Olympia Sapphire Luggage Set

I’ve also been eyeballing this set on ebags. Quite affordable and a cute print.  I’d love to recognize my luggage when it comes down the conveyor belt at baggage claim, and I think this would do the trick!


Even though I live in TX now, it still gets cold enough to need a coat.  This year, I’m excited about ruffle coats. They are the perfect mix of girly-ness and sophistication.  I also feel like I need one in all of the basic colors :) (DKNY, Garnet Hill and Tahiri)

A little while back a friend of mine created a video featuring sites in Austin and used a song from The Tallest Man on Earth as the soundtrack. Totally renewed my love for his songs and also made me love my city even more.  If you haven’t heard him, it’s kind of Bob Dylan-esque, and it’s just an awesome folky vibe to chill out to.  I definitely suggest checking out the video at the link about or listening to the song below.

piece of the puzzle, I’m your missing part

There was a good period of time when everyone ripped down their wallpaper…it was just “out”. I can’t wallpaper my place at this point, but I totally understand why wallpaper is making a come-back. I think the designs below explain it quite well. While I’m not sure I’d go as far as to plaster a whole room with wallpaper.. I would definitely use it for an accent wall, lining the inside of a desk area or vanity, or inside bookshelves/cabinets….so many designs to choose from…so many colors…so many ideas!


Today’s theme = dresses w/ jackets.  These are great combos from Alice & Olivia.


Really into She & Him this morning (and always, I guess!).  Let’s be honest, Zooey Deschanel is friggin’ adorable.  I’m really excited because the duo is coming to St Louis later this summer for LouFest.  Lots of other great bands too, but I’m extra excited for She & Him :)

She & Him - Sentimental Heart

O-o-old habits die hard when you got, when you got a sentimental heart
Piece of the puzzle, you’re my missing part
Oh what can you do with a sentimental heart?
