friday finds

lusts for the week …. ….. 

I'm finally get more excited for fall clothing 
after spending way too long browsing the online sales this week late-night-web-surfing.


love the idea of cute sweatshirts and sweaters over dresses 
sweater shown with 




I have a black leather and black knit flare skirt that need a shorter sweater to pair on top.
This one is slightly cropped, comes in black and white, and is a great price point. 


great dress for wedding or special occasion

the easiest go to's for a night out are jeans and a top.
this tank is simple but fancier, and would be perfect with heels and the blazer everyone already has hanging in their closet. 
more splurge worthy and love them :: french connection tank // parker nassau tank  

the cutest simple pumps

under $100 

yet another scarf obsession…..
my friend and I have been e-mailing different scarves back and forth daily on the hunt

the cutest rain boots EVER. I was thinking this year would be the year I'd get a pair of solid plain Hunter rain boots since I only have the burberry boots, but I love these so much more. 

have a great weekend! 
tonight I will veg with with some vino and deep thoughts


are you watching marry me??? i love her. 
and we have our final wedding of the year tomorrow.
it is supposed to be GORGEOUS weather tomorrow, so now I must rethink me cold-weather-wedding-ensemble that I have pondered for weeks…….

coffee talk

discuss amongst ya-selves……. 

DWTS kicked ass on Monday.
I know probably 5% of you watch Dancing With The Stars but until The Bachelor is back, thats my only real Monday night gig // slash // that's my excuse for being sadly obsessed with it.  
not only was it shirtless monday
and pitbull performed and guest judged
AND leah remini filled in for erin andrews.
  she reminded us all what sincerity, timing, comedy (and the contestants actually liking you and being happy to be with you) is all about.
a media frenzy started on twitter about giving erin the boot. 
everyone agreed leah (or ANYONE) would be a better host.
PAH-REACH.

plus, I had flashbacks to King of Queens the whole night and I kept waiting for Kevin James to appear at her side.
king of queens is still so damn good.…. 
{I had a 6 line dialogue here about king of queens…. clearly it was so crazy that even I had to delete it.  you're welcome for not putting you through what I just re-read.  I seriously make no sense.  and yet i am posting about what I deleted.
lord help me…… }
but back to Leah Remini.

UM Leah and Tom for DWTS 2015.  It was the best episode of the season. 

People have been stealing trucks in Orlando
most recently, 44,000 pounds of miller high life was jacked.
{high five}

other thefts include semi trucks of hershey's chocolate and slim fast.
the cops should just let it be….. 
what else is there to do in orlando but drink copious amounts of beer while stuffing your face with cholocate, then wake up with a moral hangover and reach for a slim fast for your "diet starts monday" mentality.
(sorry for the orlando joke…. maybe…. no…..) 

renee.
ohhhhh renee……..
what did kenny do to you? 
I appreciate her "go me" response to the public commentary though. 

blake lively is just the dream pregnant lady. 
I could stare at her all day.


this gif montage of her that I found while googling a photo of her for the post had me mesmerized.
 I didn't realize how much I miss gossip girl but now I'm jonesing for a netflix marathon. 

soooo I am amazing at recalling things that don't need to be remembered 
and recognizing and placing faces that don't need to be placed.
as I'm writing this, we are watching Modern Family because its one of our few "mutual" shows.  
a prospective couple is looking at the neighbors house on the show, the actress has been on the screen for two seconds, and I'm like
KIP! THAT'S THE GIRL THAT WAS JUST ON HGTV A FEW WEEKS AGO! ON HOUSE HUNTERS! REMEMBER? HER AND HER HUSBAND? SHE WAS AN ACTRESS? REMEMBER! IT'S HER!
rewind
LOOK!!!!! 
kip internally: 

(me internally : SO PLEASED WITH MYSELF for my incredible memory.
night is made.)

two songs I can't get out of my head:

Hozier :: take me to church 
I started to link the video but the video looked creepy and I didn't want it to ruin the song :) 
and the song from the Vanderpump Rules commercial
 

saw this on instagram and loved it : 
orange is the new PROSTITUTION WHORE


as always, ignore my own blatant grammatical errors whilst I make fun of others poor grammar during coffee talk on a weekly basis.  
#hypocrite  #sorryimnotsorry
I write these posts late at night while simultaneously watching Bravo, taking snapchats of my snoring husband, and making to do lists of everything I was supposed to do and didn't do that day and likely won't do the next day either.  or the day after that.

fiddle me this

    
after almost a month, we are finally settling into our new home.
which cleaaarrrrly is not the photo above. in case you slipped something in your coffee to get through your workday and needed clarification. 
I'm shocked at how "homey" it already feels, and how I haven't thought about our old apartment I called home for 5+ years at all too much.  If you know me, you would expect to see me standing outside the apartment staring at it crying, probably with a boom box overhead, but for the apartment not a person :) 
but I'm a big-ass-married-lady-grown-up now, so that means I magically handle change SO well. 
(I have, however, drafted a blog posted with the top reasons why I do NOT miss our old apartment….. if I had a therapist I think they would be very impressed with my self-soothing….. 
note to self :find therapist who makes me think I'm sane).

anyways, I'll be posting pictures of the pad in all its glory soon. 
this weekend when I was getting a stud finder at the local hardware store 
(listen to me, I might as well move to the suburbs, put on my mom jeans, and start painting tiny furniture for doll houses)  
I stumbled across this little beauty.
after years of loving and wanting one, I got us a fiddle fig. 
isn't she lovely??? (break into lionel richie) 

now, 
fiddle me this…
see what I did there? eh!? eh!? slaps thigh. 
when you google instructions for how to care for it - it never tells you an actual amount of water.
it just says on EVERY site to water so that the top inch is dry BUT the soil underneath is moist.
um. monogrammed planter. yes. now. 

so like…… how much water do I start with the first time I water it for that to happen? because it's like DO NOT OVERWATER. OVERWATERING IS HELL.  so I'm sitting here with my little monogrammed pottery barn pitcher pouring tablespoons of water out and then sticking my finger in the damn pot and asking kip what to do. I'm like it's dry but its wet but its dry? 
(kip internally : are you going to be this dumb as a parent.
me internally : oh, puh-lease……. yes.) 

so tell me all about your fiddle figgery and special tips :) 
also, tell me how you can't keep any plants alive like me and make me feel better. 

PS. WHERE DO I FIND A CUTE PLANTER TO PUT IT IN BEFORE IT DIES??!

scarf season

when the weather turns cool and closets switch from my beloved summer dresses to boots and sweaters,    
preppy scarves become my favorite accessory every year. 
I spent the better part of yesterday afternoon scouring the internet for a new addition.  
from upper left: 
one // two // three // four // five // six // seven 
*update : I don't know why my link is taking you to a japanese ll bean website for the first scarf, but it's LL Bean Irish Lambswool Scarf

and this scarf isn't your traditional plaid, 
but the simple check is perfect and the price point makes it a must. 
and if price point wasn't a factor……..

coffee talk


discuss amongst ya-selves…… 
       
let's just get the bad out of the way first.
Warning…. there's an angry fit up ahead. 
I am peeeyyyyyaasssssssed 
(thats exaggerated dramatic annoying "pissed" for this of you who don't follow).

I'm so upset with The People's Couch I could cry.
out of every show, this one ranks top of my list and I couldn't wait for it to come back on.
well, it's back, and the first two episodes have been awful.

first of all, what are they doing playing practically full episodes of shows and recapping them?
I don't need summaries of television shows…..and call me crazy, but I'm guessing the people who are watching a TV show about people watching TV are probably like me and are definitely WATCHING TV.  
seriously. what is this!?
There's like, 5% witty commentary and 95% crap!?
 What's happening?!
The shows they have been choosing the last two weeks are horrible.
They need to take a note from Season 1:  

BRING BACK THE CRAP AND TRASH!

Last week, they recapped American Horror Story for 10 minutes.

What the Hell people!!???
Why are you picking these shows?  

Perfect example : 
this week, they watch Homeland.
Now, I love Homeland. I'm all caught up on my Carrie Crazy.
but, um…….. No.
Homeland?!?

Yeah…...because thats why I'm watching Peoples Couch…..
for an anxiety ridden, horrifying blood bath to unfold right before my eyes while you TELL ME EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENS.  It was 10:30 Tuesday night and they capped off People's Couch with HOMELAND.  
Ugh. 
If you were planning on watching seasons 1-3, don't watch the Peoples Couch, because they will TELL YOU WHAT HAPPENS. 
I don't need an hour of recaps of Scandal and How To Get Away with Murder.
I either A. already watched it and know what the hell happened so why are you discussing plot lines JUST SAY FUNNY STUFF ABOUT RANDOM SHOWS WITH RIDICULOUS PEOPLE ALREADY or B. haven't watched the episode yet and THEY TOTALLY JUST TOLD YOU EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENED AND RUINED YOUR NIGHT.

Alright I'm done. 
Last week I got a little coo-coo with Joe and Teresa, and this week it's another rant.
sorry I'm not sorry
I just had to get it off my chest. My favorite show is crumbling right before my eyes.

In great, happy news,
Chrisley Knows Best is back and it is just as amazing as ever.
{speaking of, Chrisley would be a great person to call my boyfriend Andy Cohen and tell him to get with the program!}
USA. Tuesday nights.  Get on it. 

I KNOW you heard the biggest news of the week:
Friends is coming to Netflix.

This is great yet equally horrible news.
Let's take my 15% 5% productivity level and take it down to a 5% 0. 
I'm screwed. 

I'm off to write a heated e-mail to my boyfriend Andy Cohen.

PAH-REACH.
