All's Fair in Love & Wardrobe a must read



A seriously can't put it down... witty and lovely read!  The illustrations are just darling and things I want to tear out and frame!  Stephanie and her rules are amazing!  Best dating advice ever.  Two things I love combined... love & wardrobe....yes please!  Total perfection!

I love and relate to almost every rule in the book but these below are especially familiar... so I've decided to share some of my favs!

Pretty sure I went on a date with this guy just last week!  Tall, handsome, successful, emotionally available (or so I thought), who basically planned out our life together (red flag right), and our next 5 vacations, and made himself my wedding date to a wedding 2,000 miles away without me inviting him.  Even flew into Atlanta to take me out.  Well bubble skirt... busted.  Rule 11.  I own you.



*give me some of this NOW!!!





So this happened to me.... too.  Should I just be checking all these "dont's" off my list as lessoned learned.  Rule 16.  Been there.  Done that.  

I highly highly recommend keeping a journal or even saving his name in your phone as "guy always in a funk" and jotting down notes on why you moved on in the comment section because mark my words guys WILL COME BACK....FULL CIRCLE.  And you'll conveniently get glamnesia.  I couldn't agree more with Rule 18.  Slow clap for Stephanie for this nice little reminder.
 

Ah the smell of desperation and a hard sell.  This is uncomfortable and awkward and will definitely ruin any chance of you ever seeing him ever again either way you go because he only has one intention.  I mean sell, beg, plead, demand, it's all very unflattering so why do it?

Rule 6, 40, 101 and everything above... they are all my favorites!  I could have read this forever!  I want more!  I want more!  Laugh out loud funny and familiar rules you'll love but with a stylish twist!  It's a super easy read that you can finish in one sitting (I mean if I did it you can do it) and I definitely recommend reading it!  Like NOW!  Go on.  Grab a glass of wine and a little Love and Wardrobe... Hurry up!

Thanks Steph for Love & Wardrobe!  Hope y'all love it as much as I did.  

You can find All's Fair in Love and Wardrobe here and Stephanie's Love and Wardrobe twitter here so go say hi!

#WHATTHEHEALY a bach party

#WeddingSeason is here in full force in the South.  I think I'm up to number 8 so far this year... whew.  Came home on a red eye from NYC and jetted right back out the next morning for Miami.  Luckily I had packed two suitcases and had them ready to go because I knew I'd be too tired to deal with it when I got in from NYC.  

I read somewhere that it's okay to overpack... because suitcases have wheels now.  Wrong. Unless you have a friend to close it while you sit on top... you're doomed.  I had to duck tap (I know I know... so classy) my suitcase... and not for safety and security but so it wouldn't bust open and break a zipper.

Now when I go carry on style, I go full professional and keep it black on black on black... but when I check a bag I'm all like what's the most obnoxious suit case I can take so I recognize it!  And lucky for me too because of our 3 flight delays my suitcase got home before I did and it went to the airport babysitter, basically where luggage goes to die, and I don't think I ever would have seen her again if it weren't for the one and only houndstooth and hot pink print! Thank you suit case travel gods above!


So back on track... after my Miami and Ft.Lauderdale meetings I was able to join the weekend Bach festivities!  My little college roomie is getting hitched so we got to celebrate in Las Olas.  We rented a house with a pool close to the bars and beach which was fun.  Especially the college like reunion having all the old roomies together again.

Needless to say traveling, working, and partying.... I'm exhausted but the bags under my eyes are Chanel.

FLASHTATS my new obsession

These little metallic gems are my new summer obsession! Could they be any cuter!  Flash Tat and Mr.Kate Beautymarks are just a few but I'm sure there are so many more now!  

I went out in Miami and Ft.Lauderdale and literally a dozen people stopped me to ask about them!  I'm obsessed!

I'm having an affair with New York...

Hey babes!  So I've been werk werk werk werkin on my flight status lately... earning them points!  I had a crazy week but I'm back!  ATL > NYC > MIA > FT.LAUDY > ATL whew!  Packing is NOT easy.... it required two separate suit cases and a cold beer.  2 Closet nightmare below.


And off I went to NYC!





First stop, and only because I couldn't resist... my most favoritest thing ever... {squeal} and I didn't even have to pull a hammy running after the delightful sound because in NYC they park! Whoop Whoop! #happydays RAINBOW SPRINKLES PLEASE!!! 


YUM! nom nom nom!  I thought my coworkers were going to lunge at my delicious treat!  Hello Madison Avenue.. moving on up... to the East Side... to a way bigger office in the skyyyyyyy #ilovemyjob

love NYC character 

#bosslady taxi style off to a NYC Happy Hour because NYC never sleeps and work never ends

Yummy little bodega negra cafe at the bottom of Dream Downtown!  Such an awesome feel because the bar seat faces the street.  Super cool!  The waiter was absolutely charming... asked me out... and told me to watch out because New York would sweep me off my feet!  Apparently that #BOSSLADY t-shirt really gets a lot of attention and followers!  In case you're not following me ... shameless plug @adyrol on instagram and twitter!

 who said advertising was boring... 

 great views

 Dream Downtown Rooftop


 


One of my favorite things about NYC... PIZZA!!!!  






Last stop at Beecher's The Cellar downstairs for some amazing cheese plates, mac and cheese, and wine! Girls.  Best.  Friend.  I mean white girls dream right? Cheese and wine. Sign me up!


Finally headed back to the airport where they have iPads everywhere now and nifty water bottle refill stations... so "in" NYC! You go girl!  



Until next time NYC!
