8 Things I Loved & Learned Last Week

This past week has been an eventful one.  From a busy work week to a weekend in Miami, there was lots going on!

1.) Currently loving my new blog business cards.  The lovely Erika of Small Shop Studio designed the logo (and my blog).  Tiny Prints allowed me to upload the custom logo and even add a little leopard trim, and had them printed and sent to me within a week. Talk about customer service!  What do you think?

2.) I discovered I LOVE the song "Born to Die" by Lana del Ray.  Although I had heard great things about her voice, I hadn't taken the time to listen to very many of her songs.  But this song truly captivated me and I think I have probably listened to it 100 times in the last 7 days!

3.) I LOVED seeing burgundy pants featured on Amanda's blog- Lust Luxe Love.  Just like Amanda, I think they might be one of my fall "must haves."  Plus, they'd be perfect for cheering on my OU Sooners this football season!

4.) I loved the decor in Dal Toro, a Miami beach bistro we ate at on Friday. The bright kelly green tufted booths were so chic!

5.) I LOVED visiting the Taschen book store along South Beach.  I think I spent an hour drooling over the shelves of beautiful coffee table books.  I didn't even know such a store existed!

6.) After seeing the beautiful cover of Pucci in the Taschen store, I realized I LOVED it so much that I wanted to take a copy home. Taschen offers it in several different prints.  However, the price tag was a bit much for me.  Maybe I can find a cheaper copy on Amazon?! 

7.) I learned that there exists a place in this world where it is perfectly acceptable to wear a bath robe to a hotel dinner.  Where is that place?  The Standard Spa & Hotel in Miami.  Appropriately coined "an adult playground", Sam &  I stayed here this past weekend and enjoyed spa treatments, sangria and ceviche in our bath robes.  Talk about relaxation...

8.) But with that relaxing vacation we planned on (and enjoyed as much as possible) came Hurricane Isaac.  Unfortunately we did not see a wink of sunshine in Miami, and even worse- the water was turned off throughout the city for nearly a day.  I learned that if you love who you are with, even the worst circumstances can't get you down.  I'm thankful my laid back Australian guy manages to keep my type-A tendencies in check. Even when we have to leave a day early and nearly get caught in the hurricane!

How was your weekend, friends?
