    Good focus point before heading to a tough (#crossfit) workout in a couple of hours — today the meaning of this quote for me is to surround myself with workout/health buffs that will challenge me to reach my fitness goals!

    Lately my boyfriend and I have been barreling our way through old Mad Men episodes and just finished season 4 last night. I’m sad that we’ve finally caught up to the current season, but have been too obsessed to stop watching!

    All of the recent swimming and California pool scenes have me wishing for summer days spent poolside…how perfect then is this Kate Spade clutch that channels both 60s ladylike style and features a pool reflection print, complete with a ladder-into-the-pool clasp?!

    It’s the little things that make Mondays brighter - a delicious desert for breakfast with tea, a refreshing walk with the puppies and….a J.Crew sale :). I’ve been keeping an eye on the above J.Crew jean jacket after Emily of Cupcakes and Cashmere wore it (picture2). With 30% off the sale price it was an easy decision! Hope your Monday is going great!

    Spring linens! Nothing says spring/summer like lovely lightweight linen clothing. This little Gibson blazer looks perfect for those slightly cooler days that you still want to look pulled together and season appropriate for - and at $88 this one is a steal (great reviews and feedback in store). I can’t wait to wear mine (I got white)! It’s such a classic piece, that will look great with fun accents (like this Stella vintage necklace)! What are you looking forward to wearing this spring/summer?

    Happy Friday! I want to share the easiest recipe ever — perfect for making last minute, or for beautiful spring/summer nights that you don’t want to spend in the kitchen. I saw the instructions on Pinterest originally, but it was called ‘lemon bars' — mine just ended up looking more like a cake :)
This took me less than 3 minutes from start to placing in the oven. 2 things - box of angel food cake mix and 1 large (or 2 small) cans of lemon pie filling. Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 9” x 13” baking dish. In a large bowl, mix the cake mix and the lemon pie filling well. Pour into baking dish and bake for 25 minutes or until the top is slightly brown. Cool on a wire rack. I left mine plain, but this would be great with fresh berries, powdered sugar or a light lemon glaze. Fresh, delicious and easy!
