Blueberries are on of my favorites fruits for snacking and baking. I love the sweet tartness and how well it pairs with a variety of flavors. Recently I've been baking up new treats for snacking during class with my friends. Last week when I had blueberries and chocolate on hand, I decided to combine the two to make blueberry chocolate chip cookies. The result was divine. The sweetness of the chocolate paired with the bright pop of tart flavor of the blueberries was delicious. I used this recipe from to make these yummy treats!

It's no secret that I adore pretty stationery. One of my favorite print shops, SS Print Shop, launched a new line called the Paris Pocketbook and it's très chic. I love how pretty every piece looks and am in love with the photos and video from the photo shoot. Who wouldn't want to munch on French macarons and pastries and write on pretty stationery all day?
My favorite piece from the collection are these pretty little gold foil journals filled with 32 lines pages.

I'd love to visit this sweet little cafe one day!

Last Thursday, fashion week took off in the Big Apple and now 8 days later, NYFW has come to a glamorous end. I followed along on the newly edited Vogue.com and loved seeing each collection day after day. Here are my favorite collections from Day 1 through day 8.
On day 1, BCBG stood out! I loved the light ethereal styles in an abundance of happy spring hues.
Jason Wu's collection was my favorite on day 2. I loved the majestic fabrics, jewel tones and beautiful draping.
On day 3, Altuzarra's patterns and prints were everything.
Hands down, DVF was my favorite collection on day 4. There's something so practiced about DVF's collections each season. They're always beautiful, modern and feminine.
When I think about Carolina Herrera, I see beautiful prints and lovely gowns. On day 5, this collection showcased just that.
Year after year, I love seeing Oscar de la Renta's new collections. On day 6, his collection was presented and showcased beautiful pastel numbers and an abundance of flowers and lace.
The Michael Kors collection was my favorite on the day 7 of fashion week. I loved the flawy full skirts and mix of patterns and prints.
The Ralph Lauren collection beautifully closed the 8th and final day of NYFW. With a stream of bright bold colors and beautiful jewels, this collection was surely one of my favorites.

I recently joined JustFab and it's probably the worst thing ever...for my wallet. After hearing about it for a while, I finally browsed the online boutique to see if I actually liked any of the styles. Sure a few designs were not my taste, but quite a few were. And then I saw a pair of brilliant blue pumps for $10 and I've been wanting a pair of brilliant blue pumps. So naturally, I added the pair in my size to my cart and checked out. Within the week I received the pumps and instantly fell in love. Honestly speaking, aren't they très lovely? By buying the pumps, I officially became a member and am going to see how it goes. They send emails frequently showcasing new collections. Each month, members can select a pair of shiny ponies for $40 or skip the month if nothing is appealing or funds are tight. Unfortunately I've scoured the recent collections I found a pair of leather booties that may find a way into my home. Here are the other beauties I'm ogling.
