Weekend Roundup

After reading Glossy Blonde's post on her 2-year blogiversary (congrats, Niki!) I realized that my blog celebrated its 1st blogiversary this week, too! WOW! I'm proud of my blog growth so far and can't wait to see where this blog goes in the next year. I hope you'll all stick around for awhile :)

I wasn't planning on posting today but I'm home alone on a Friday night with not much else to do. So tonight, I'm getting a head start on the weekend with a few can't miss posts from the week:

The delicious looking (and lightened up!) Ice Cream Cake with Circus Animal Crust from above

Planning an Easter brunch? Offer a DIY Bellini bar

When buying sunglasses, I usually just try on a ton of pairs and get what I think looks good. Did you know there are certain types that flatter certain face shapes? Find yours most flattering sunglasses for your face shape!

My buddy Chelsea Rhane rounds up a few of her favorite charcoal-based facial products. Yes, I said charcoal... check it out!

My favorite part of Easter has to be the deviled eggs. Here's a twist on the traditional party eggs 

Speaking of eggs, here's a super easy and cute DIY for polka dot Easter eggs

Don't miss out on this week's Easter Four Favorites! If you're a blogger, join this fun linkup each week.

I promise I'm not an alcoholic, but I can't resist sharing this yummy sounding recipe for a Lemon Ginger Cocktail

Enjoy your Easter weekend!

#NoChella: Shorts + Oxfords in Palm Springs

Shorts: Hart Denim | Oxfords: Madden Girl | Tee: Forever21 | Bikini Top: Voda Swim | Fedora: mark.girl (similar) | Sunglasses: LC Lauren Conrad for Kohls | California Necklace: Nashelle 

This past weekend, Steve and I took a little road trip out to Palm Springs for the day. We stopped by Ace Hotel to attend a blogger lounge from Two Point Oh! LA where we caught a couple of performances by The Pierces and Joel Taylor and even got to Sharpie-design an Aryn K. clutch... which Steve promptly took over! 

We took a drive through a couple of neighborhoods looking for good photo shops and drove by a few amazing mid-century modern homes-- so cool! The style is such a throwback to the 60's-- think the Brady Bunch home. Speaking of super cool-- I won the adorable crotchet-detailed Hart Denim shorts I'm wearing from a giveaway on Love & Ace. Love Kat's blog (go check it out NOW) and LOVE these shorts!

Four Favorites: Easter

While we don't so much to celebrate Easter (although to be honest, I wouldn't mind an Easter basket filled with chocolates and goodies!), it's great to spend the day with family and of course, having the obligatory Easter egg or two... or usually for me, deviled eggs. This week, I'm rounding up my Easter Four Favorites:

1. Decorating Easter eggs: I love the pretty watercolor designs on these! Different and simple.

2. Whenever I think of Easter, the Peter Cottontail song starts playing in my mind, "Here comes Peter Cottontail... Hopping down the bunny trail..." Oh, now it's stuck in your head? You're welcome.

3. Yummy and cute Krispy Easter Eggs! What's not to love about rice krispy treats and pretty sprinkles?!?

4. I fell extremely short this year in this department but I love springy, cute Easter decorations. I'll be better next year about this, promise!

What do you love most about Easter?

Good HUES-Day: Spring Brights

Flats: Anna Baiguera | Watch: Kate Spade New York | Blazer: Target | Layering Cami: Victoria's Secret | Bag: Kate Spade New York | Skinny Jeans: 7 For All Mankind | Skater Skirt, LE3NO| Shorts: Madewell | Shoes: Vans

While I'm all about spring pastels and florals prints, there's just something about splashy, bold colors that brighten up everyday outfits. Mix and match colors together for a bold look or incorporate a statement piece into a simple outfit.

Do you wear bold, bright colors in the spring?
