Plan for the weekend. Test drive the new Ford Edge. It's a divided feeling of excitement (because I've never had the opportunity to test drive a vehicle) and anxiety because the people that work at dealerships are...scary to say the least. Well, I hope you all have a great weekend. VROOM-VROOM!

I bet when you read the title of this post your mind was imagining something a wee bit more...well...peace, love, and granola. Well, I'm still in the gem kinda-mood, so I created this necklace using gorgeous moonstones, faceted yellow citrine, and raw transparent quartz. I needed something more wispy and light with the oncoming transition to spring and I'm really excited with how it came together.

I'm on the road again and this time I'm hitting up Dallas, Texas. To be honest, I won't have much "touristy" time, so I packed my bags in preparation for some serious reading. With my bag bulging at the seams from the weight of my books (I couldn't decide on just one) and my laptop, I experienced my first time hankering for some form of media like the iPad. Thinking...still thinking about it. I'm a bit nostalgic when it comes to reading. I love the ritual of going to Portland's Powell books and seeking out my new read. I love the christening crease made with the first page turn. I love putting my book down for the evening and taking a peek at my bookmark location/page progress. No matter what people say, I know I will miss that. However, I will not miss lugging around hefty novels. What are your thoughts on the new forms of reading media?

Splashes of purple and champagne peppered the red carpet at the Oscars this year. I was dazzled by, oooohhhh, just a few frocks. Take a peek at a few of my selected favs. Which is your favorite?
Mandy Moore looked dazzling in this Monique Lhuillier number
Michelle Williams is one my favorites, she looks so chic in her Chanel gown
Hailee Steinfeld in Marchesa... so smart, so perfect
Natalie Portman in Rodarte was vibrant
Mila Kunis, in Elie Saab, sexy and sultry
Scarlett Johansson, my total style icon, wearing a Dolce & Gabbana. Va va voom with a bit of fun
Cate Blanchett in Givenchy was absolutely beautiful and super unique
But the winner is...da da daaaa...Gwyneth Paltrow in Calvin Klein. I just loved her radiant, sleek ensemble

This past weekend we loaded the car with tons of ski gear, picked up our dear friends Eli and Kelly, and headed over to Mt. Bachelor. Once a year a group of friends gather in Sister's Oregon to celebrate our friend, Steven's, birthday. It's always a lot of fun and the weather and snow conditions couldn't be any more perfect. It's safe to say we found the snow and had an amazing time.
