Music Monday: Two Door Cinema Club

Yesterday I was at work (yes, on a Sunday) for an event. The DJ played this song by Two Door Cinema Club which I had not heard yet. "Something Good Can Work" is such a great tune that I went home and immediately downloaded it. I love how catchy Two Door Cinema Club's music is, it's fun and you can tell that these guys are very talented because there is meaningful liveliness to all their tunes. I hope you enjoy it!!

Thursday Threads: Statements

I'm always looking at necklaces. I love them! They can make the most plain outfit, POP! Here are some beautiful pieces I came across this week. I'd happily add all of them to my collection!
The J.Crew Water Lily Necklace is incredible. Dress up and down, it's classic and can make such an impact on a simple dress or paired with a wild pattern. It can be yours for $138.
This is Stella & Dot's latest and greatest, the Juniper Necklace. It's so pretty in it's spring time shades of blue and green. I would love to add this to my collection. It can be yours for $118.

C.Wonder is wonderful! Classic looks at a rock bottom price. This stunner comes in white, blue and yellow. I love the blue best. It can be yours for $88!

Do you have any must have statement necklaces? 

Happy Shopping!

Music Monday: Kangaroo Court

All I can say is THANK GOODNESS for XM, or who knows if I would stumble upon musical treasures like this one, Kangaroo Court by Capital Cities is GREAT! This belongs on everyone's running mix, if this song doesn't get you moving, then I don't know what will. I hope this song helps you wrap up your Monday.

Thursday Threads: A Special Look

So next week I am doing something exciting, I just can't tell you what. Regardless of what it is, I have to look GREAT! Fortunately for me the J.Crew Factory is having a sale and these are some pieces I looked at. To take a look and take advantage of the sale click here and enter the promo code MOREPLEASE at the check-out! Maybe you will find treasures...

This beautiful staement necklace can be worn alone or as a great base later. At "big J.Crew" they have a VERY similar version for an additional $30. At the Factory it is only $49.50! Click here to see.
This beautiful dress comes in this stunning blue, a pretty pink and a spring time yellow. The blue was my favorite of the choices. It's absolutely perfect for the spring and summer season. Wear this classic to work, a date, a cocktail party or a wedding! It's only $69.50...and did I mention on SALE?

Finally there are these simple pleasures. Pair them with the dress above, or jeans and a white t-shirt---they are the epitamy of a statement flat. They are $98 online at the Factory as well.

There you have it! Happy Shopping!

Music Monday: Postal Service

There are some musicians who make magic with every project, every song... Benjamin Gibbard is that kind of a musician. After some solo work, he's back to The Postal Service, and their first single, "Tattered Line of String" is another great example of their work. I hope this tune makes your Monday upbeat!
