floridays, part i

i worked really hard to figure out the best way to depress INSPIRE you this monday morning.  these beach photos from last week oughta do it.  i sent the second picture (the sunrise on valentine's day!) to a friend that morning and she replied, "why don't you want to live there again?"  still haven't given her an answer.  

more florida snaps over the next few days!

coffee & tv

my fabulous florida vacation is over and this photo does nothing to convey its illustriousness, but you're stuck looking at it anyway.  (although, if we want to get technical, i did score that anthro sweater at a vulgar markdown while there, and i'm way into the ten-days-with-my-man glow i've got going on.  just indulge me.)  have you spent any time in south florida?  sunshine and warm weather are constant, there's more leopard print on the elderly community than in your local hipster dive bar, and the bagels.  THE BAGELS.  i ate about three times my weight in carbs on that trip, and when i overheard a couple retirees gab about living half the year in new york and half the year down there, i realized how very brilliant that is.  i spent hours staring at the ocean, and watching the sky as the sun rose and set above it.  and seriously you guys, the food.  that sundae was worth the line we stood in for a table, and i feel it's important you know that i experienced tempura-fried pickles and am forever changed.  i've decided i'm a gastrotourist, you know.  (albeit a vegetarian one, so anthony bordain'll want nothing to do with me.)  and now i'm back home, eating watery canned soups and celery, feeling happy and in love with the memories of the past week and a half, but sort of deflated too.  (the canned soup.)  and downton is over?!  though bethenny swooped in to take its place on my DVR, i feel a little less classy without the 'masterpiece' bit.  and the two pairs of leopard print jeans i was obliged to buy in sofla definitely aren't helping.

sneaking in a quick hello from my trip to tell you that it's been the BEST kind of week; another fantastic one for 2012's record books.  and sitting here on sunday morning knowing the coming week will be even better?  i've never felt luckier!  only slightly bummed to miss this weekend's snowstorm up north, but i do get to go strawberry picking in sunny south florida this afternoon, so i think i'll manage a smile.  :)

soul plane

at this very moment i'm flying south to eat the world's best veggie burger (or three), show my saltwaters a good time, and tend to some very valentine-y business.  i'm excited!  seemed fitting to show you my new favorite etsy find while i'm 30,000 feet in the air.  how precious is this custom long-distance love pillow from diffraction fiber?  (infinitely less creepy than this one!)  hope your holiday (if you believe it's one) is lovely; eat lots of candy and wear your cutest red shoes.  xo!

miss manners

how many of your dates look like this?  in the last four years all of my mother's rigorous lessons in table manners have been blown out of the water by the iphone.  oh, but i used to be so good!  only pulling my trusty palm magician out to settle "what movie was she in?" debates, or to shazaam a catchy tune from the privacy of a gap fitting room.  then things happened.  like, my boyfriend started looking extra cute every time we sat down to lunch.  and then i'd bat my eyelashes and ask him to check movie times, so i could sneak a photo to remember his cuteness always.  this of course led to instagramming his unreasonably handsome iphone glance, and next thing you know?  i'm rude.  a really rude date who can't seem to put her phone away.  i tried to earn his forgiveness by choosing a few favorite instagrammed-for-posterity moments we've shared, and turning them into magnets for valentine's day.  i've already given them to him though, because in addition to being rude, i'm also impatient.  
i've made so many fanciful stickygrams that they sent me my own special discount code to give to YOU, so you can get $2 off your order and apologize to your date too!  use code stylebook456 at checkout, now til february 18th!  it's the polite thing to do.
