Week in iPhone pics: Chloe bag and sparkly nails!

Another week, another round of iPhone photos!
iphonepics
1. I painted my nails and then noticed it was a perfect match to my glitter Louboutins!  I used Zoya Gilda and then Zoya Astra for the glitter tips.
2. The new Chloe Marcie Crossbody is on the top of my wishlist.  SO pretty... (I'm at Nordstrom in Bellevue Square if you are wondering.)
3. I lurve our new Kartell "Take" Lamp. We love practically everything Kartell (and yes we do own their most famous piece, the Ghost Chair) so when I saw this lamp I knew I had to have it on my desk. I think our next purchase will be the Bourgie Lamp. ADORE!
4. I was at Rite-Aid and spotted a random container of bracelets so started to rummage through them and found this hilarious bracelet.  I had to get it because I say "I'm over it!" all the time.  My husband makes fun of me for the amount that I say it so when I showed him the bracelet he thought it was the funniest thing.  The brand of the bracelets is Me Bands. They have a ton of other sayings too!

5. Grilled cheese sandwich with french onion soup and Caffe Vita french press from Anita's Crepes.  The perfect lunch!  One of our favorite french restaurants - if you are in Ballard you must try it!  The french onion soup is SO good.  And if you are in Seattle you must go to Caffe Vita for their coffee/espresso.  One of my favorites, we love restaurants that carry Caffe Vita.  Do you know that I never go to Starbucks?  Way too many good coffee shops around here that Starbucks is the last place that I'd go to get coffee.
6. I've been obsessed with making baked goods with brown sugar lately.  I made these brown sugar chocolate chip scones and they were AMAZING!  So yummy.
7. I'm still having fun with my Kitchenaid Mixer but didn't want to bake another thing for me to get fat on so I made doggy treats! (I made a variation of this recipe and I rolled them instead of cutting into shapes)  My dogs go nuts over these!  Made with mainly just whole wheat flour and peanut butter, they are better for them than the treats we buy at the store.

9. No snow in Seattle (thank goodness!) but I'm still doing a bit of traveling for work so I tend to end up in a snowy city.  I can't stand snow but at least I got a pretty picture out of it!
10. Wedding season is coming up...  We met one of our bride and grooms whose reception will be held at the Space Needle to scope out the space and grabbed this picture before we headed up.

So that's my past week and a half summed up into pictures, how was your week?

Pictures were all taken on my iPhone 4 and post processing and layouts done in Photoshop.

  7. O-M-G are those hot pink glitter ron ron's??? you are SO lucky.. i was desperately trying to get my hands on them.. but they were all sold out in my size all over the country :(

  8. i'm from seattle & now live in the bay area and it makes me SO SAD that there aren't 10 million tiny coffee shops around! i think i miss that the most about home. i usually drink peet's coffee but if i'm in a bind i'll buy starbucks. not my favorite but it'll do!

    as for baking & not getting fat, i have the same problem! i love to bake but don't want to eat all of the treats so i started looking for alternatives. did you know you can use dates in lieu of sugar? i made these amazing carrot muffins last night & they have zero sugar & a ton of delicious things in them!

    thanks for sharing your pictures! your blog is the first one i go to everyday :)

  16. Hey Tiffany!

    The Chloe looks amazing on you :)

    How did you make those doggy treats. Did you only use wheat flour and peanut butter?

  17. Is the Bellevue Nordstrom better than the downtown one? I'm heading down to Seattle for a couple of days in March-my boyfriend and I are debating making a trip to Bellevue to check out or the shopping or now, since most of the stores seem to be the same as downtown.

  18. @curls-and-pearls yes, they were last season. I think (or hope) that he will come out with more glittery shoes!

    ReplyDelete
  19. @PetiteAsianGirl oh yes, the prada booties get lots of action. haha! Yes, it's the same Marcie style, I love all of her Chloe bags!

  20. @House of Hemingway Thank you SO much again, I really love it!! I'm blogging about it tomorrow and will post about your giveaway too!

    Oh and the Celine Boston is GORGEOUS! I <3 it too.

  21. @carodaily I know! Baking is like a stress relieve for me but then I don't want to get chubby because of it! Good thing I have lots of friends and family that like baked goods too :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. @Laura J Oh yes, it was the perfect cheesy combo and I really don't even like cheese that much! I just made an exception that day and it was yummers!

    I bet your doggie will love the treaats as much as mine do!

    ReplyDelete
  23. @lisa Yes! The glitter Ron Ron's! I died the moment I slipped them on my feet. :)

    I <3 the Chloe Paraty as well, it is such a gorgeous bag!

    ReplyDelete
  24. @suzanne for a coffee lover, Seattle really is the best place to live :) BUT I do adore the bay area as well!

    Thank you SO much for that recipe. I never knew that, I'm going to try it out!

    ReplyDelete
  25. @Lys ~ Cooking In Stilettos Yeah, that was my worry and even though we had been buying organic whole grain treats, we were paying a whole lot for them so making my own was a great way to keep them healthy and save money!

    ReplyDelete
  26. @kileen I know, I bake *too* much. Such a stress relieve these days! But hubs and dogs get the benefit of that! :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. @A.Co haha, I wore the bracelet again the other day and every time I wanted to say it to my hubs, I just pointed to the bracelet.

  28. @Richelle Hi Richelle! I have the recipe linked up there but it's fairly easy, just 4 ingredients that you mix together and then bake it. Here's the link to the recipe...http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Birthday-Bones/Detail.aspx

  29. @Megan Both are pretty much the same. We usually stick to Downtown because we are closest to it. Bellevue is good though because you don't have to pay for parking and the mall has plenty of good stores and then you can go down the street to The Bravern to hit up Neiman Marcus and all the luxury shops down there.
