what I love: revamping!

More often than not in life, things need a bit of revamping. What is revamping you might ask? Revamping is reconstruction, re-thinking, re-working, re-loving! Great. Well how does it apply to me? For some, like Cher in Clueless, revamping means a new attitude, a new wardrobe and new friends.

Well for me, it was this here blog that needed a bit of revamping - and revamping we did! Along with a new design, we have given it a significantly more appropriate (and fabulous!) name, this, I love. After all this blog is all about those inspirations that we love - those inspirations us that move us and that make us excited to live and learn every day.

So welcome, my loves, to our new and revamped blog this, I love.

Take a look around.

What do you think? You love it?

what I love: macarons!

It is officially the holiday season now that Thanksgiving is over. I know. I got a little carried away last week when I already started posting about gifts, but how could I resist?! The fact of the matter is, though, now the Christmas music is on the radio, the trees are being sold on every street corner, and the lights have gone up. There's no denying it now. With Christmas, undoubtedly comes cookies. One of my favorites (and my love of this week): MACARONS!

Macarons simply scream "holidays" to me. Honestly. They're chewy goodness is undeniably amazing with every bite. What's even better? For all my DIY lovers out there, a fabulous recipe from Vanilla Bakery courtesy of SMP. Check it out here:
