Finding Beyoncé

It’s 2017 and by now, the children that are growing up probably have no idea what “Where’s Waldo” is. The people behind Sugoi Books are bringing this little part of our childhood book back and this time with “Finding Beyoncé” In a new 40-page illustrated book, children must pick out their Beyoncé in chaotic events that typically might surround the R&B singer.

“We’ve put together a glorious illustrated tribute to Queen B where you get to swim through the pages and find out where’s she’s hidden on the page,” the publisher wrote on the product page. “Think Where’s Waldo but with way more sass.”

The Closet: February 2017

Free People Come Around Cami – $38

Can you tell we’re having a little bit of a shoe moment right now? I usually refrain from buying new pairs until the summer when the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale rolls around, but we’ve already got these on the brain. Now, if only they’d get hit with a massive sale… 😉

And it looks like once again, we’re obsessed with the black and rose gold combination. They just look so great together!

Aziz Ansari’s Modern Romance

photo cred | Garance Dore

You guys, I finally did IT! It may have taken me 6 months, but this was the first book that I have finished in years. I constantly get made fun of by my coworkers because in the past couple of years, I have acquired several books, (Lean In and Blog Inc) that I have always wanted to finish, but never quite got there, unfortunately. After being adapted to blogs for so long, it was hard for me to continue to keep my attention span on an entire book so the only way we could get this done was through airplane rides.

I bought this for myself over Christmas time after Sam had told me she had just gotten it and found myself hooked quickly. Dating in 2016? Sounds exactly like what all my friends and I are talking about any chance we get. Besides loving Aziz, I loved his take on dating culture around the world, but also by different generations. This is something that my parents and I don’t always see eye to eye on, but it’s nice to know that there’s lots of people that don’t quite agree with their parents on it as well. I would recommend this to you because it’s a good and quick read (if you’re enjoying it) but who am I to give a recommendation – it took me 6 months after all. Here’s hoping that you finish this quicker than I do!

Also – this is a big deal because this satisfies one of my New Year’s resolutions – finishing something that we start! We hope that we can continue this with everything that we start, but we’re just fine checking the box off one for now.

A Collection Part 45

Interestingly enough, we don’t have a lot of thoughts to share about this A Collection Part post. The last 3 months have been a blur, but a good one. I think we’ll have some thoughts that we can share tomorrow that we’re building up, but for now let’s just enjoy these.

Home for the Holidays

Processed with VSCOcam with hb1 preset

There’s nothing worse than being sick during your vacation and of course the holidays! In the month of December, my company gives us a generous amount of time off so that we can get away from work, unwind and actually relax, and spend time with friends and families. A lot of my coworkers actually go on elaborate trips during this time and I always get so jealous, but it’s also the perfect time for me to just return home to Seattle too. The first day of break, I came down with the flu. Hard. And it was absolutely miserable – so bad that I didn’t even get to go visit all of my favorite places and eat at all of my favorite restaurants! Despite the flu though, I’m surprised at how many photos we were able to capture from the trip. Above is a snapshot of Oddfellows’ outdoor holiday decorations that I took when I met up with Max, Veronica, and her boyfriend Alex over brunch.

52 Lists Project

I wanted to take some time today to share with you all a really great present for the special people in your life. If this book looks familiar, it’s because you may have noticed that I featured it in my Christmas Wish List for 2015. While I didn’t receive it as a present this year, I did gift it to my mother who I thought would enjoy documenting her 2016 in lists and what’s important to her so that she can look back on it someday.

We’re so happy to be promoting 52 Lists Project because not only is it sold out in stores nationwide and backordered on Amazon because it’s selling like hotcakes, but it was also written by Moorea Seal who is the owner of one of my favorite boutiques back home in Seattle. Anyone remember this post from the summer when I stopped by her shop for the first time and fell in looooove?!

The journal is beautiful. I can’t get over all of the pictures I’ve seen on Instagram in which it has been featured. I also can’t wait until I can snag one for myself (if I’m ever going to be able to get one!) Heads up – all my girlfriends can look forward to getting this as a present this year for their birthdays.

Christmas Wish List 2015

Jimmy Choo – Lilyth 120 – $665

Being 25 has changed me. I know so because this year I asked Kevin for very practical gifts that I actually need including luggage with wheels for my travels and a new laptop sleeve because I’ve spilt too many liquids on my old one. I also need a pair of earbuds to replace my old ones. Next year, I’ll be asking for a new vacuum, cushions, sheets, and aromatherapy sticks. Who are we kidding? We’ll take those now! Actually this year’s Christmas wish list is probably the most diverse that I’ve created so let’s just enjoy this alright?

Via IMBOYCRAZY

By no means do I ever feel like I’m going to reach a point in my life where I feel like I know everything. Sure, I’ve had my fair share of experiences, but I love seeking advice from my girlfriends and vice versa, I love to dish out my own advice too (if they ask!) Sometimes these pieces of advice come in various funny forms. I was having brunch with Neel (who was visiting from Boston for the weekend) and Spencer on Saturday when all of a sudden Neel hopped up from the table and said to me, “Katie, I have something for you! It’s from Yelly!” YELLY?! She is our mutual friend as well, but she hadn’t been at brunch with us so I was very confused as to what was happening. He came from his car with…
