midweek menagerie

A collection of thoughts and things-

After an epic almost-wipeout on my bike my lower back has been killing me the past few days..I think I pulled something, not fun. We spent our day off hanging at home and catching up on True Blood and Breaking Bad, the heating pad was my friend. My back finally started feeling a little better yesterday so we went out for a bit to grab dinner at our favorite Thai place and rented a few movies. I want to get back to my walk/runs, hopefully I'll feel 100% soon! I guess I didn't gage that curb very well..haha

I'm loving my detachable crochet collar from Asos

Zooey Deschanel's Rimmel ad- I just spotted this in my magazine..photoshop fail! She's so quirky, pretty, and normal..why would they mess with her gorgeous face?!


I can't wait for my hair to get a little longer..I love her full/messy milkmaid braids!

This photo of Zooey is one of my retro bang inspirations! It reminded me that I need to trim mine but I don't want to cut em too short!

Some tastiness from the week-

grilled peaches!

mini peach bundt cakes using my vintage good, and cute!

I'm dying to see this movie..Drive-Ryan Gosling and Carey Mulligan, two of my favorite people!

I hope everyone is having a great week so far!

There are so many things to love in this post that I hardly know where to begin! You look beautiful in that floral dress, and the collar adds just the right amount of cute-quirkiness. All the food looks super-crazy-yummy. (Tomato/basil/mozzarella sandwiches have been my meal of choice lately.) And I am definitely going to watch that trailer just as soon as I post this comment! Ryan Gosling and Carey Mulligan together in a movie?? Recipe for success. :)

i have been going back and forth about getting an asos collar and i think you've pushed me over the edge. you look absolutely lovely, as always. and you're SO right! wtf with that rimmel ad?? i hadn't seen it but she looks like a totally different person. they are fools.

i've been out of town and just generally slacking but i promise a package to you is in the forefront of my mind, and i'll put it together for you this week.
