After wearing a serenity blue blouse this weekend (see this post) I was inspired by Pantone’s colors of the year. Last year, the color was Marsala, a beautiful wine red. This year, Pantone chose two colors, which is out of the ordinary. The colors are Rose Quartz (a light pink) and Serenity (a periwinkle blue). The choice of the colors… View Post
Happy Monday and MLK day! I hope everyone had a nice and relaxing weekend. If you have today off, cheers! I hope you’re planning to do something fun and extend your relaxation. On Saturday Dan and I put on our walking shoes and headed to the Washington Memorial to have a little weekend picnic. We decided that since we live… View Post
In line with my New Year’s resolutions (check out the post here) I have made a goal to read 25 books this year. It is kind of daunting for me (that’s one book every two weeks give or take).

It is January 11, and we are still trying to stick to our resolutions. One that we all make or renew each year is to exercise more. But if you are like me, exercising is not just a hassle because of the actual workout. It is the after-workout routine (showering, blow drying, styling) that takes a long time. What if… View Post
Cold and gloomy weather makes me want to wear all black, every day. I’ve been working on my D.C. bar application for about a month now, and I finally compiled everything I need to submit it. I mean- they need to know every place you ever worked, lived, sneezed (jk about that last one) and it takes awhile to dig… View Post
