Thursday's Randoms

So much color! So much pretty, vibrant color! I could stare for days upon days.  Via

Mr. Gosling was in my dream last night.  We were friends and he was dating a girl I had been hanging out with.  I was all set to perform a song for a large crowd of people I knew from all the different stages of my life.  I had practiced, practiced, practiced.  I didn't have a dress to wear at the last minute, so I fashioned a maxi dress out of a yellow shower curtain I have.  Anyway, I went out on stage to perform the song but at the last minute "they" (I don't know if I ever knew who "they" were) changed the accompanying music to piano and the pianist played an entirely different song than what was planned.  I was humiliated in front of Ryan Gosling and everyone else I had ever met because I didn't know the song and I do believe I woke myself up with tears in my eyes!  No good!  Via

Can someone please do my manicure like this?  It's so amazing!  And kind of looks like candy - so of course I love it.

Isn't this so lovely? Los Angeles artist Myan captured this Los Olivos vineyard in the morning in just the right way.  I am captivated by the rich colors - I'm also naturally drawn to anything that has anything to do with vineyards.  Via

My friend Hadley introduced me to The Flourishing Foodie and I haven't been able to stop drooling ever since.  These carmelized apricots with goat cheese and pistachios sound like the perfect bite of heaven.  Not to mention, they're apparently classy - class x 10.  I love it!

Last...hello, gorgeous!  I've been eyeing this ring from Angela Monaco for awhile now.  It's just so pretty!  And fun!  And feminine, yet so tough.

What's inspiring you this week?

I love the look of that dog in the Ryan Gosling pic - sooo cute. Obviously I'm getting old when I want to cuddle to dog more. I'll blame it more on the fact I adore my husband. I'm also feeling inspired by grilling fruits, see it everywhere lately, don't know why I haven't tried it yet!

Cathy September 22, 2011 at 9:53 AM  

Love the all the bright colors! Especially since it's a little cloudy out. And the ring! I'll take it too.

Totally in love with vineyards also. Very romantic.

I absolutely love these things, with the exception of the stressful Gosling dream. I think the ring would fix it...

Apricots and goat cheese?! Yes, please!

Ryan Gosling in Crazy Stupid Love pretty much stole my heart. Total babe!!

I've had Ryan Gosling dreams before but they've never ended in tears.

I like that ring, and that manicure. They would look great TOGETHER. ;)

the ryan gosling dream is a nightmare. wash it away with 12 viewings of lars and the real girl.

swaddle yourself in those bright fabrics and eat the yummy treats while doing so. this should be a remedy.


Kristin September 22, 2011 at 2:52 PM  

That mani is crazy awesome! There definitely needs to be a DIY post on it!
