Joy and Shades of Pink

Rainy days call for “JOY” French “Diva-nilla” coffee. Haha. Love this cheerful polka dot coffee and polka dot, “You have filled my heart with greater joy,” Dayspring mug (check out their Good Things- Teacup and Tote Gift Set). So much extra cheerfulness for the day!
It was raining all day, so I didn’t get to take outfit pictures of this outfit “on”. But I was crushing hard on the color combo, so I wanted to be sure to share it. 

Ballet Pink cardi + Hot Pink scarf + Latte tee
Add cheetah ballet flats, jeans, lavender nail polish and hair band, and citrine earrings.

I think this color combination is just wonderful! It feels sophisticated, yet youthful.  What do you think? 

Rainy Day Movie Pairings

Oh rain, rain. It seems to have become a trend here in New England to rain all week, and become sunny on the weekends. While I certainly won’t complain, lest it reverse its tactics, rain does make a workweek a little tough to get through. So tonight I’m sharing some of my favorite movie & snack pairings! These are the favorites I reach for on a rainy night…
A Vacation of a Film:
Roman Holiday
with Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck
Snack Choice: Gelato or chocolate ice cream while snuggled up in a warm blanket on the couch (fire optional), so you can pretend it’s a warm summer day in Rome.
An Always-Inspiring Classic:

The Sound of Music
with Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer
Snack Choice: Wiener schnitzel and apple studel would be top choices. Barring that, grab a box of Pepperidge Farm frozen apple turnovers (I loved these before I was GF). A nice rich hot chocolate topped with whipped cream is a nice treat, too. Or try the pink lemonade that so bemused Max and the Captain!
A Laughable, Adorable Favorite:
That Darn Cat
with Hayley Mills
Snack Choice: This is a good movie for some good old-fashioned buttery popcorn! Grab some Newman’s’s my current favorite.
A Go-Getter Movie for the Rest of the Week:
Legally Blonde
with Reese Witherspoon
Snack Choice: Anything pink, sweet, and sugary! 
Snuggle up and enjoy!
