The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Heads to London

The angels were excited this morning as they made the announcement that next year’s annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show would be heading to London!

They broke the news during a press conference inside Victoria’s Secret’s Bond Street store in London Tuesday. “We’re pretty excited to be here today because we have this great announcement to make,” Lima said. “The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is the biggest fashion event in the world, for sure, and we’re very proud and honored to announce that we are headed to London this year. Yes!”

“I’d like to invite Prince Harry, if he would like to come,” Lima told reporters. The 32-year-old Brazilian beauty promised he’d get the VIP treatment, of course. “He definitely has a front row seat!” she said.

Previous shows have been held in Los Angeles, New York City, Cannes, and Miami. I remember seeing looks on the runway featuring the Union Jack in previous shows, but I’m so curious as to what the themes will be this year. And as for performers? We hope it will be better than Fall Out Boy and Taylor Swift. My vote is for Sam Smith and Jessie Ware.

Capitol Hill Block Party 2014 Partial Lineup

cbhp2014

When I learned that the partial lineup would be released this morning, I had my laptop in… lap at 8:55 AM ready to go and not willing to miss a thing. The partial lineup isn’t the entirety, but it’s enough to hold us over and give us a tease of what’s to come. By the looks of it, if these are the names they are releasing now, then the rest of the lineup will surely not disappoint. I saw both Chromeo and Matt and Kim at the former Street Scene San Diego Festival years ago and have been itching to catch a performance of theirs ever since. I also was able to catch Beat Connection at Bumbershoot this year as a last minute filler to their lineup and am so excited about all of their new material.

Not bad Capitol Hill… but don’t make us wait too much longer for the rest. We’ll be waiting.

Oh Joy! for Target

I have never felt more behind in blogging than I do right now. However, I just did a very adult thing that is due on April 15th every year so in some way, I feel like I’m on a roll.

Since I heard about Oh Joy!’s collection for Target, I have been dying to blog about it. By now, I’m sure most of you have seen some of the images. Seeing them in person at the store was just as great too. Here are some of my favorite picks below. I wish I had a party to throw soon so that these purchases would be worth it!

These adorable two-toned vases are holding paint brushes, but could they potentially hold my makeup brushes too?

The Weekend: 5 Things

I just realized that the past two posts in the series have been 5 Things: The Weekend. I’m not sure if it really works both ways so we’re taking it back to the original. This year’s birthday celebration was similar to years prior in that I prefer to stretch it out. After celebrating with my friends the weekend before my birthday, I decided that the weekend after I would travel to sunny San Diego to visit my BFF Ash!

It was an incredible weekend full of shopping, seafood, and pampering.

My weekend actually got started on a Thursday since I was flying out Friday morning. On Thursday evening, I drove up to the city (what?! In the middle of the work week!) to catch London Grammar at The Independent. I had listened to a few songs before randomly, but never consistently. They were amazing live and with a packed house, it was pretty apparent that nearly everyone in the room was a hardcore fan. I didn’t feel worthy enough to be there, but I did feel pretty lucky since I heard it was a sold out show. Hannah was phenomenal. Her boys are pretty dreamy too.

During our shopping trip at Fashion Valley, we stopped by “Typo” – a division of Cotton On that sells cute desk accessories, trinkets, and home goods. How cute are these straws? They’d be perfect for any summer soiree.

Pacific Beach was perfection and so are my new favorite sandals by Dolce Vita. More on that later.

Whoooo!! This girl is my best friend. Since we’ve been friends, we’ve never spent a summer apart and this year, we won’t have to because we’ll both be in the Bay Area while she is interning at Stanford. Summer 2014 – the summer of Ash and Katie.

We found the Oh Joy! collection at Target and we fell in love. Definitely more on this later.

Proud Owner:

We didn’t make a mention of it at the start of the month, but as some of you know, it is my birthday month! This isn’t my first time celebrating it in the Bay Area, but it will be the first time I’m celebrating it as a resident. My friend Spencer and I are just two days apart so we’re having a little bit of a celebrating this year and decided to purchase a pinata.

I’ve always wanted to have one for my adult birthday – and let’s be real, there will probably be one present at my future wedding too. They’re just so cute! We’re excited for little Ralph to arrive to us soon!

Oscars 2014 Red Carpet

Lupita Nyong’o, in Prada

The red carpet was packed with actors and actresses meant for the best dressed list. We’ve reached the end of the Award Show season (I think) and this was probably the best way to close it out. Lupita has pretty much hit it out of the park for every award show. That alone, should earn her an award.
