Finds Under $40! Get The Look! Kate Bosworth!!

Hey babes! I am so ready for Friday, are y'all? Welcome to this week's Finds Under $40! Kate Bosworth's look edition! I'll be honest and say that when I first saw Kate Bosworth in Blue Crush I would have never expected to see her as a top fashionista. Over the years she has really carved a name for herself in the fashion world! Kate wore this to the opening of TopShop in LA. I really love the look; while simple, it still gives her an air of being cool and sexy.

I Want To Live Not Just Survive...

Hey loves!! I hope y'alls week has been going splendidly. I've been procrastinating on packing, of course, and getting back into my music. Don't you just love when a song hits you and it's all you can think about? That's how I've been this week. It's not even a new song---but, it's just sooo good. Seriously have had the acoustic version on major repeat and have been trying to learn it on guitar, damn B-Minor chord!

Style Watch: Colored Tights!

Hey babes!! This edition of Style Watch is all about colored tights! They are all over the runway from the fabulous Kate Spade to Noon by Noor.  A great way to transition into Spring pieces is to wear them with tights. What better way than with a splash of color?! I'm partial to the navy pair as worn by Atlantic-Pacific or a great ombre grey pair! Gotta get some of these babies into my wardrobe!

Who were y'alls faves?

Take It And Run

Hey babes! I totally spent my day, while working, obsessively watching the live stream of the IFB Conference! I've definitely gleaned some golden nuggets of wisdom from the amazing panelists! Gotta take them in stride and incorporate them into my blog routine. I jumped on the Vine bandwagon (it was mentioned 100 times in 2 minutes--so I definitely had to check it out!) Make sure to add me under my twitter handle!! ;)

Saying I am obsessed with leopard lately---is a major understatement! We've been having a steamy love affair---and I cannot get enough! I already have major plans for these pants! Soo many possibilities! I also scored this Asos coat on major sale yesterday! Cannot wait for it to arrive!!

Midnight Musings

"Treat others the way you want to be treated." The old adage has been running through my head a great deal as of late. All of us have heard this quote, time and again, from our parents and teachers--mostly as a warning not to be "ugly" to our friends and other students. However, I think it's something that should definitely be held onto into adulthood.

Why build bonds with people if they cannot count on you, and vice versa. I've always been one to expect the same considerations--I give, from friends and colleagues; but that is not always the case. MOST of the time. And to me, that is sad. It's too much a waste of my time to get angry. I realize how people are and then just move on. But, I always ask myself. Then why is this person my friend?

Everyone has friends for different walks of life. The friend you vent to, the friend that won't judge you no matter what you tell them, your work wife/husband, the friend you get drunk with, the friend you make go to awkward family outings with you, etc. But, I would hope that these friends would treat you the way you treat them.

With our crazy lives it's hard enough to maintain a real relationship with someone. We get caught up in the everyday hustle. But we all hope to be able to count on our friends when we need them. And ladies and gentlemen, that is not necessary always the outcome.

I'm not saying go out of your way to do things for people. Or be extra nice if that's not your personality. But, next time someone asks something of you, or you're in a situation where you can help. Definitely, take a second to think about it. Perhaps it really won't "put you out". Consider the reaction you would want/expect if you were the one asking. How would you want the person to respond to your request?

Has this happened to your recently? What did you do in order to fix it? Did you say anything? Reconsider the friendship?
