The briefcase is rarely thought of as a fashion statement, but more so as the business man’s (for lack of a better word)… purse. However, I have come to view the briefcase as a more sophisticated and professional version of its much younger college-esque counterpart, the backpack.
My day-to-day purse has grown far too heavy to tote on my shoulder. The constant accumulation of papers and work necessities seem to be over running the small tote that accompanies my now behemoth purse. All in all the issue of space and weight are of utmost concern and the solution seems to be the overlooked yet very chic briefcase. Such a briefcase can be held by the handle or in many cases by means of the cross body strap therefore equally distributing the weight, presto! Problem(s) solved.

There is something about January first that feels brand new every single year no matter what. While life continues to go on, it still feels something akin to starting over. This clean blank slate full of promise, potential, and lots and lots of hope for good things to come.
Welcome 2011! We’re so glad you’re here!
Happy New Year friends!
While the holidays are a fashionista’s haven of party outfits to plan and lots of pretty presents to give, this time of year also brings about yummy sweets a plenty. In between braving treks to the mall and endlessly searching for that perfect gift we somehow find time to make things. I’m not talking a batch or two of sugar cookies but rather hundreds and hundreds of sugary decorated morsels.
Funny little cookie cutters…perfect stocking stuffer!
A whirlwind of flour and frosting takes over the kitchen for the better part of 24 hours as we bake our way into sweet happiness. Here are some of my favorite cookie recipes I want to share with you…
Pastelitos de Boda
Oatmeal Raspberry-Jam Bars
Chocolate Hazelnut Sandwiches
Gingerbread men (and women)
When I was in college one of my favorite songs was Dream Big by Ryan Shupe and the Rubberband Band. Not only for the melody but because the lyrics were so truly inspirational, the chorus being “When you dream, dream big.” How profound.
I always find Friday’s to be especially inspirational as I build big plans in my head of what I can accomplish in the coming weekend. It seems that the bigger you dream, the more likely it is that your dreams just might come true. Let’s be honest, dreaming is fun but reality is so much better.
Here are some inspirational “Dream Big” things from around the web today…enjoy!
