i had a wonderful sunday dinner with two of my closest friends at narcissa in the east village last sunday night.  this is actually my 5th time at the restaurant in the last year (i love it that much), but i keep forgetting to bring my camera.  thanks to my lovely friend sari for these pictures!

also, for all you vegetarians out there (i am one too), i highly recommend narcissa.  the menu is so creative, and i never feel like i am missing out.  oh, and the carrots wellington is outstanding.

just in: lonely cyd longline bra

remember when i said i only owned 5 bras?  yea…the combination of my dear friend becca and journelle has increased that number a bit.  oops.  this is turning out to be an unhealthy addiction.

lonely cyd longlinelonely cyd longline bra and brief.

the navy blue lace is so soft and stretchy.  even though there is an underwire, i barely feel like i am wearing anything.  i picked this set up at beloved intimates, a charming store in nashville with a great selection, and lovely owner.


summer makeup

the increasing temperature has caused me to simplify my makeup routine.  although i am normally not a big makeup person anyways, i have managed to pare down the contents of my medicine cabinet to these products.  they are all light enough so i don’t feel like i am wearing much makeup, but still look polished.

spring makeup{clockwise from top: 1) laura mercier oil free tinted moisturizer; 2) chanel loose powder; 3) ysl lip gloss; 4) lorac front of the line eyeliner; 5) ysl babydoll mascara; 6) giorgio armani eyeliner (i smudge this on my eyelids and use in place of shadow)}


spain purchases

in spain, all i brought with me was a small carry-on, so i had to be very careful about what i purchased.  in madrid, i knew i wanted to get a pair of espadrilles from castaner.  this brand is hard to find in the states, which is a shame because it has such a great history.  these shoes are so well-made, and are extremely comfortable.


i also got a pair of flat, sparkly sandals and underwear from oysho.  because i, of all people, didn’t pack enough underwear.

spain highlights

i was luckily enough to spend an incredible 10 days in early july in spain with a good friend.  the main purpose of the trip was to go to the running of the bulls in pamplona, but we also made it to madrid, san sebastian, bilbao, and barcelona.  here are a few of the highlights:
