I’ve had an exhausting week so far and it seems as if there simply have not been enough hours in the day to get it all done.  Although it’s only Wednesday, I’m totally looking forward to some serious R & R this coming weekend. In the meantime, check out a few things making me happy.

It seems as though I’ve decided to give myself a little hiatus from my blog entries lately. The truth is, the weather in NY has been sort of drab and it’s bringing everyone down (especially because we got spoiled with some super nice weather a few weeks back). I think everyone thought that Spring was in full bloom so it’s been a little disheartening pulling out the cold weather clothes that may have gotten packed away a bit too soon…. However, here are a few things making me happy.

This week has gotten off to a busy (and exhausting) start for me. As much as I am in total need of some serious downtime, I’m definitely looking forward to dinner plans with an old friend later this week and my dear friend’s engagement party. In the mean time, these are just a few things that are keeping me motivated…

~my favorite chilly evening treat- hot cocoa with a shot of peppermint schnapps~

~ sparkly clutch that I currently can’t live without~

~old shoe last display at All Saints in Soho~

I hope you are all having a great week so far. The weather in NY has been nothing less than spectacular and the entire city is buzzing with Spring Fever.  Here are a few things adding a little sunshine to my week:

~Beautiful tree in my neighborhoood filled with these flowers in full bloom~

~Super cute bow tie display~

~Japanese Treats at Minamoto Kitchoan- the fish shaped cookie is traditionally served at the happiest events for good fortune~

~ Venus and Jupiter shining bright outside of our apartment~

I’ve been pretty busy lately (hence, the missed blog entry yesterday), but in all the craziness, I’ve been trying my best to take at least a little “me” time to stay sane. In the mean time, here are a few things that have made my week a little brighter so far…

~ Fresh baked chocolate chip cookies at my favorite coffee shop~

~ Our goldfish, Jack- who was clearly not cooperating for his photo shoot~

~ I know it’s a bit early, but I’m loving these colorful chocolate Easter eggs~

Finding time to appreciate the little things is so important. That’s why I’ve decided to make this subject a recurring one on my blog. This week, these are a few of the things that are adding a little fun to my otherwise jam packed and busy days…

~  My favorite finds- creamer and sugar bowl from Anthropologie~

~ Chanel all in one- eye shadow, lip gloss and blush~

~Decadent desserts from Le Pain Quotidien~
