Currently Loving...

It was a quick week for me since I had to take a day off from work due to the massive snow storm that hit the 518 on Wednesday. Despite my mid-week day off, I am still excited that it's the weekend. I'll be going out tonight to celebrate a friends birthday and then hopefully spending the rest of the weekend relaxing. 

Here is what I am loving this week:
In my mind, C Wonder can do no wrong. It kills me that there are no stores located near me, but it doesn't stop me from (constantly) shopping online. I'm really loving their new spring collection and I'm counting down the days until they release all those adorable new flats. In the meantime, I'm coveting this silk gingham blouse! 

It's no secret that I am obsessed with Olivia Wilde, not only is she stunningly beautiful she is also brilliant and hilarious. She wrote another great article for Glamour Magazine where she imagines what will happen in the world during the next 75 years (including discussing our future president, Blue Ivy Carter). It's both funny and eye opening, definitely worth a read.

I always love having candles burning, there is something so relaxing about watching them. But candles can be pricey and certain brands can burn quickly causing me to buy more. My friend Christina recommended Circle E Candles and now I'm hooked. They have so many amazing flavors including Buttery French Vanilla and Cappuccino Delight, plus you can buy a 40oz candle that will burn for over 220 hours for only $25!
All I want is warm weather and a tan.

My New Nike Sneakers
I really needed a pair of light weight sneakers for Costa Rica outside of my Asic running sneakers. Lucky for me I found this fabulous navy Nike's while in Syracuse for dirt cheap. I love the mixture of colors and they weigh next to nothing so they will be perfect for trekking through the rainforest.

What are you loving this week?
