Happy w/e to you all....it is crazy nice in Luzern and is making me a little over the top excited about summer and finally getting to swim in the lake!! I walked over to the farmers market today and still looking forward to running in shorts, bbq'ing, sitting along the river with drinks..and maintaining my denial that i'll have to return to work on monday. i can't believe i even said that! I need to start playing the lottery...

What are you up to?

Random Post of the year

So fun when friendos send me things that make them think of me (it's what happens when you're a crazy obsessive person over a SHAPE i guess) but I thought these were cool and should be shared. Thanks Tiffany!

And maybe another love I have lately is all things metallic/goldish and I nearly lost my mind over these shoes and they were SUPPOSED to be on amazon but they are NOT the same ones and I'm tired of unrequited love.

This is on the verge of making me annoyed with Fashion crazes/fads...it's a half untucked shirt...I don't know...cute fad or just another way to wear a shirt?


And now for the weirdest thing I've read in awhile...there is this article called Working Out and Addiction - The Scary Connection on Refinery 29 which basically states that those of us who work out are more susceptible to addiction because when a study was done with coke addicts, one way to break their habit was introducing them to exercise. But it was hopeless if they already did it. WHAT?! So we should stop exercising RIGHT NOW in case someday we decide to become addicted to coke. I thought this should be a special alert.
Ok, have good days!
I love these rare photos of the Titanic. I hope you guys all had a good w/e...I played bartender at my favorite pub on Friday night (you might see a lot of pics of me on that page! like it!) - it was BUSY. Then ran some errands around lovely Luzern Saturday morning...then got SICK as a dog. Another flu, wth! I'm home sick today but on the mend thankfully.

OHHH and I've booked tickets to visit the US! I'm so excited. I am needing to recharge with old friends and family, I can't wait to be surrounded by so much loooooove, be taken care of by my grandparents, sister trip to FL to visit my momma (and the beaches), spend some quality times with my soulmate friends in IA and MI that I miss so much. I. can't. wait.

Here are some links for your exciting work days ;)

+ I love these Brazilian mats
+ While this iPhone friendly watch sounds cool...I'm thinking it's too much
+ cubby coat hooks, ba.
+ Meme Alert: remember ridiculously photogenic guy? Here is Ridiculously Photogenic Puppy
+ And finally, a great article about social networks (esp. Pinterest) contributing to people/moms feeling like they aren't enough. It's a must read, even if you're not a mom, it makes you feel a little more grounded.

I ain't saying I'm a gold digger...

Wednesday, April 11, 2012



I'm sure you can tell from my blog that I'm a gold person. Are you? It's always catching my eye - you could probably coat a plunger in gold and I'd be pinning it!

1. I ordered this from Uncovet
2. From Zara home.
3. Pretty hair cuff
4. Industrial type for the flat (under $10)

I pinned these photos awhile ago, I looove her photograpahy. (are we friends on Pinterest?)

And happy easter weekend to you! We get a 4 day weekend here in Switz and instead of traveling somewhere we are using it as an opportunity to enjoy our couch, cook some good food, do some exercising, hang out with the brown dog, etc...it's been rainy too which adds to the awesomeness of staying in the apartment!! We did go to ikea..does anyone else come back with the same things everytime? I always come back with candles, plants and picture frames..always.
Anyway, Happy Easter to all of you!!
