target is practically giving away these cynthia vincent for target sandals... although the website says they're $17.48, i snagged mine for a paltry $6.oo. sure, they're faux leather, but they're a fun little flip-flopper to scoot around in for the rest of the summer.
the aspect of wedding planning i've been looking forward to the most: cake tasting! somehow, i finagled our bakery in napa into overnighting a cake tasting . friday, my fiance and i will feast on a delicious assortment of cakes... roasted banana with vanilla scented cream cheese frosting? yes, please.
summer fridays are the best days for multiple reasons...
1. my office graciously shuts down at 1:00- need i say more?
2. a beautiful bounty of fresh, organic vegetables is delivered to my doorstep
this is the first year i've participated in a csa, and i couldn't be happier! i highly recommend the stonefield farms csa to anyone in central ohio... they provide a wonderful assortment of vegetables and they offer single shares for... singles. so far, i've received a variety of lettuces, the largest cucumbers and squashes i've ever seen, broccoli, blackberries, cabbage, sugar snap peas, green beans, and (my current favorite) beets! i used to rely on trader joe's roasted beets, but after tasting a freshly roasted beet, i will never touch the vacuum-packed variety again. stonefield farm's beets have an earthy sweetness that can't be found in cardboard box.
i love a scarf. i have a propensity to feel chilled and i like the way a vibrant scarf can jeuge-up a lackluster outfit.
i was in vail, colorado a couple weeks ago and i stumbled upon a boutique that carried the most beautiful scarves. the brand is epice, and unfortunately, their internet availability is pretty limited.
the scarves are produced by danish textile designers bess neilsen and jan machenhauer in collaboration with weavers in india. in the boutique, the scarves were cotton/silk blends in bright stripes of varying widths.
