I signed up for a free 30 day trial of Netflix, and subsequently have been watching a whole lot of Friday Night Lights. So naturally, this weeks Swoonsday post is all about Dillon Pather #33, Tim Riggins, aka Taylor Kitsch. On-screen he's a womanizer with a good heart who likes to have a good time, and off-screen he's a southern charmer by way of Canada, and is also besties with one of my celeb boyfriends, Chace Crawford :) 
Like they say: Clear eyes, full heart, can't lose... ;)

As my belated blog birthday shout out to Ms. Lady Gaga, I'm sharing the Country Road version of "Born This Way." While the original is amazing in all it's club-beat, dance pop goodness, this honky-tonk version is spot on. If Gaga wanted to do a country album, I'd be ok with it.

weddings on the brain

As I approach my mid-twenties[barf.], more and more people I know are getting married. And being a girl, I've got a lot of ideas floating in my head for what I'd like when the time arrives. Right now, I'm really into pinwheels and bunting banners and kitschy things like that, then I found this lovely image that put pinwheels right into the bouquets! I think I'd make them smaller and incorporate them into the bouquets, and then the boutonnieres would be a pinwheel with a few flowers tied on...

boyfrann application

Now taking applications for a boyfrann. Duties: to sit on my stoop and sip soda from glass bottles with me this summer. Must be super cute and semi-stylish, like music and lazy days. <3

Now that Bradley Cooper has ditched Renee Whatshername to focus on more important matters, ie. dating me, he can be featured on my swoonsday posts again. :) Om nom nom.

I heard this cover of Rihanna's "Please Don't Stop the Music" when I was at Trader Joe's a couple weeks ago, and almost didn't recognize it. But before I could Shazaam it on my phone, it reached the chorus and I instantly knew who it was. I wish Jamie Cullum would just put out a whole album of covers. If you like this one, check out his cover of Pharrell's "Frontin'."

officially spring

Happy first day of Spring! I'm all about florals- both prints and arrangements for the home, and sunny skies these days. Now if the weather would take the hint and stay warmer...

I'm feeling pretty nostalgic these days, and I decided, since I ride the 6 train just like J.Lo (although, I'm not living in the Bronx), why not feature her this Tunesday? :) Enjoy.

dark shadows

True Blood doesn't return to the television until June. But this spread from the March issue of Harper's Bazaar should help tide you over til then.
 (Clemence Posey+Karl Lagerfeld)+pops of red(photos - color) ÷ vampires =  Stunning photos. And the tagline on one of them couldn't be more perfect: Sometimes style simply runs in your blood.

Happy Weekend!

Swoonsday is back [finally] !! I can't believe it's already March, and this is only the FIRST swoonsday of 2011. So I made sure it was worth it. This hottie is going to be huge this year. Andrew Garfield steamed up the screen in 'The Social Network,' and will be swinging on the big screen as the new Spiderman. Plus, he has an accent, nom nom nom. The only way I can describe him, which, by the way, I feel is pretty accurate: Walking. Sex.
Happy Wednesday :)
