Beach Paintings & Glowing Lipstick

My 4th of July weekend was pure magic. I have to rate it my number 1 weekend of Summer 2013. Yes, that is right. Numero Uno. Being back home in Albany was a dream all by itself. The weather was PERFECT. The quiet was phenomenal. The air was breathable. And on top of a picturesque location, I basically saw my entire family. My parents, my brother, his girlfriend Gia, and the love of my life, Dylan, were all in attendance at the major fun points. We spent the 4th at the Lake with my dad's entire side of the family plus tons of family friends. The boating, jet skiing & fireworks were so needed in my life I cannot even begin to think of adequate words. Throughout the weekend I tanned, read (!!!!) and come Sunday had seen some of my favorite people :) Ahhh. Feeling totally and utterly refreshed. 

I think these Beach Paintings are stunning. Recently I've been trying to expose myself to more modern art. After taking Cultural Foundations second semester, and studying 16th and 17th century art, I have found a new passion! The painting below is called Inner Tube Blues by Teil Duncan. 

Dylan has been attempting to convince me that going out to clubs and fist pumping is the best time on earth. So my response to that is finding this super cool 'glowing' lipstick from Stila that apparently is neon under UV lights. Sounds perfect for fist pumping at clubs. 

Here are some healthy barbecue fixes for all those summer parties! I'm sure I'll be doing some grilling this weekend when I go home to Albany! I cannot wait to see my brother and his girlfriend, go swimming, drive a car & read by the lake. Simple pleasures in life. 

I bought my first pair of Joe's Jeans today! They are the SOFTEST most comfortable jeans I've ever had. I am in love. I guess they are considered 'boyfriend' jeans which is funny because they will be the one pair that my boyfriend will disapprove of. Their slouchy/comfy persona just isn't as attractive as skinny/can't breath jeans. Too bad. 

Must make this Chocolate Pie. I feel as if I've been searching for this recipe my entire life, and have only now just realized it. 

Oh, what's up basically diamond headphones? Can I have you? 

I am super digging this new site I found called Eva Solo. It's a dream for people who like kitcheny things that make life easier and prettier. 

If I haven't yet mentioned to you my obsession and utter love for Disney Princesses, you will now know because of how BADLY I want this iPhone case. It is amazing. I think my fav Disney Princess is either Mulan or Belle. 

In yet another attempt to stay organized and feign effortlessness (word?) I think this jewelry roll from Morelle & Co. is adorable.

Have a great rest of your Wednesday! Mike and Nicola come to visit tomorrow and I cannot wait!! We are going to have the most incredible weekend :)
