Friday Favourites

1. Hazelnut lattes
are my favorite fancy coffee drink since college. I used to take turns with vanilla, almond, hazelnut, etc., but no longer. Hazelnut is it for me.

2. gaps between front teeth

3. trains

4. Tarte cheek stain
I used to think that blush was for old ladies. Then one day I realized I wasn't really rocking the whole pale face look as much as impersonating a vampire. A little color isn't such a bad thing, and this cheek stain by Tarte is the best way to get that gorgeous flush.

5. belts over cardies

Allow me to introduce my gorgeous friend Kendi.

You may already follow her hilarious and fabulous style blog, Kendi Everyday. We've been friends with Kendi's husband, Bryan, for about ten years. They're also photographers, and Bryan is second-shooting a wedding with Nathan this weekend. Can't wait to see them, celebrate Bryan's birthday and catch up! (in that order)

Two months late on news THIS big?

Girls, brace yourself. Anthro is launching a bridal line in the spring of 2011! It was announced two months ago, and apparently I missed the news. As a Anthro-card-carrying loyalist, I feel like I'm falling down on the job.

The not-yet named bridal line will feature heirloom wedding gowns (does that mean designer? vintage? Pardon me while I consult Google), bridesmaid dresses, accessories and gifts in the Anthro-style, sure to make every red-blooded American girl weak in the knees. Wedding gowns will retail between $750 - $5000. Don't let the price tag get you down, because I saved the best for last. In addition to a wedding site, Anthro will open a few bridal stores in select cities. Actual stores...

What will the gowns look like? That's the big question here.

This is purely conjecture, but I predict...

and maybe...

In addition to Anthro's signature dreamy boho-chic, maybe they'll even offer some more classically tailored dresses, like something worn by the gorgeous Jackie O.

OK. This summer, Nathan and I will celebrate our tenth anniversary(!), so I'm not in the market. But for all you girls who are, I hope that you find the absolute perfect dress. Maybe you'll even find it at Anthropologie!

So sorry that I've been out the last few days, lovely friends.

But I have a really, really good excuse.
I helped Nathan second shoot this weekend in Iowa, and everything came off without a hitch*. I'd describe this feeling as a happiness hangover.

Going back to work tomorrow isn't even that bad, because it's the last day of school before summer break.

What are you up to this summer?

I intend to:
1. work on my writing

(This isn't me. My hair is shorter, I use my Macbook Pro instead of writing by hand, and in summer, I normally sit inside in the air conditioning at coffeeshops when I write. But cute dress, huh?)

2. work out every day**

3. turn off our cable***

4. take a photography class

5. go see old movies at the Paramount

*other than one small episode that included taking some detail shots inside a tent where the air was rather humid, causing the Nikon 17-55 lens to fog up, when time the groom's brother-in-law suggested (ever so brilliantly) that we put said fogged-up lens into a hot car to bake out the moisture. It totally worked, and he totally saved the day.

** or as often as I can (excluding sick days or days I'm too busy writing, a.k.a. writing more than four hours a day)

*** not to worry, because we already have our TV hooked up to our internet, which means we can keep up with most shows we care about and in the meantime, watch lots of great things on iTunes and Netflix Watch Instantly. Goodbye, Cable! No hard feelings.
