dead week

i've already stated about a million times to everyone that this next two weeks are uber busy. with finals and my new job, i am completely overwhelmed but i have managed to come out with one tidbit of advice for dead week before finals.

a venti iced coffee and morning bun from starbucks have been my breakfast and will continue to be for the rest of the week. getting showered and dressed for the day first thing at 6:45 am will make you feel more productive. so far these two things have gotten me to feel somewhat accomplished with my day.

sadly, i will not be able to blog for the rest of the week, but am hoping to be back and running on may 20th. until then follow me on twitter. my status updates on facebook and my tweets will be live proof of how insanely busy i am.


p.s. dave matthews playlist on pandora is my life right now. strongly recommended :)

a royal party

i was honored to be invited to caren templet's "eat drink i do" party at lounge on 20 in sacramento. in celebration of the royal wedding and caren templet's new spring collection, there was more than enough to gush and swoon over. everyone there had great sense of fashion and it was so nice to chat with other young women who appreciate the beautiful pieces by caren templet. after being introduced to caren, i got to try some fabulous girly drinks and socialize with some hard working young women about great ideal pieces for spring. more than often than not, pastel colored blazers, as well as neutrals were the main topic of conversation. babydoll and empire waist inspired dresses were also on many of the girls' want lists. i'm bummed to announce that i had forgotten my camera at the house. luckily, i have an ever so sweet boyfriend that used his camera phone to capture some of the evening.

the wonderful and amazing caren templet.
