"I just like to smile. Smiling's my favorite"-- Elf

One of my favorite celebs to follow for the last six or so years is the one, the only LC from Laguna Beach and The Hills. Always classy and innovative, the Orange County gal has maintained a down to earth, honest personality despite being thrust into the spotlight and becoming one of the most admired stars of her generation. Of all the role models for young girls and grown women to have Lauren Conrad flies high above the other contenders.

Recently launching two sites, one being Lauren's personal website completely redone and refabulized, http://www.laurenconrad.com/ and the second entitled http://thebeautydepartment.com/ which is co-authored with her hair and makeup stylists, you can expect both sites to be fun, informative, and just helpful on everything from hair to decor to inspiration. The stylists, Kristin Ess and Amy Nadine, provide nothing short of amazing advice in their given areas of expertise. On Lauren's specific site she has been doing a list of favorite things weekly, typically on Fridays. What an awesome way to reflect on happy thoughts and to be sure you're taking time out of busy schedules to think of the things providing sanity amidst the chaos.

I don't mind this idea one bit. It's absolutely fantaz! Without further ado, onward with my weekly favo's:

*Fave snack: grapefruit
*Fave quote: What other people think of you is none of your business
*Fave old habit back with a vengeance: Coffee!!
*Fave accessory: Multi gem cocktail ring, fave fave favorite!
*Fave website: http://thebeautydepartment.com/ ; http://www.laurenconrad.com/
*Fave literature: People Style Watch June 2011
*Fave fashion trend to try: Peach lipstick
*Fave moment: Accompanying my sis-in-law( :) ) to her doc appt where we found out another little gent will be joining our lives (EEEKKK!!! Yay for matching sweater vest pictures at every holiday of both handsome little devils)

A man is not very tired. He is exhausted

I know. This is days after the initial blow of learning that this wonderful human being's life ended. What in the world. Talk about a cherished existence. The man my parents still rave about because of his stand up comedy, the man who forever changed the way I say "Hellloooooo" in an older British woman's voice, this great giant. How sad. I feel for the fact that Robin hit a level from which he could not rise. Depression, anxiety, stress are awful beasts.

I do not believe in the mentality, that someone who takes their life is selfish. Sure, it's not the kindest thing to leave behind for loved ones to cope with, but if something has it's grasp on a person, well, choices are made. It is devastating that there is still so much stigma for diseases like depression and anxiety. What?! Get the hell out of here with that mess. I would not wish it upon the biggest naysayer even to prove a point. So, to that, I say screw the assholes saying derogatory …

My dear, If at first you don't succeed, throw on another accessory & try, try again

Off to try, try again!


Til we meet again,

Anything is possible with sunshine and a little pink -Lilly Pulitzer

Today is a good day, my friends. Today means at the 6 o'clock hour I shall enter a four day weekend. Full of what, you ask? So far on the agenda is:

-trying out a very new and deliciously enticing restaurant known as Cooper's Hawk and Winery;
-finishing the rest of season 5 and all of season 6 for Sons of Anarchy-which is phenom BTW;
-and enjoying the beautiful weather we are projected to experience, with extra SPF of course.

I like to call this agenda a little something known as living the American dream indeed.

Oh and I'll be toting around my newly obtained Kate Spades. Surprise 75% off sale, what? I CANNOT wait for the tote! I'll give you a hint until I can show the new ol'gal off #baconeggandcheeseplease :):)

Any how, I have to go shopping now ( Love a good Pretty Woman reference) get to finishing my day so the fun can begin. Hope everyone has a safe, fun, relaxing good time. Or go wild and have to retrace events to determine how good it really was. Ju…
