Pretty Inspiration

My weekend wasn't nearly as pretty and glamorous as this image, but I am loving this color palette and inspiration for Monday morning.

• On Friday, we went to see American Hustle.
It was good. But, am I the first to say Jennifer Lawrence's role may not have been suitable for her? Eek! On a nicer note, I thought Amy Adams and Christian Bale were amazing!

• I hope my kitchen cabinets look like this one day!

• After going home over Christmas, I started using coconut oil in a whole new way!
Dublin is always humid, so the climate change made my lips beyond chapped. Here's a list of other great uses for it.

Have a great week! Xo

I have been dying to see American Hustle!! I love J Lawrence, so I hope she doesn't disappoint me.
I'm obsessed with coconut oil, especially under my eyes when my skin gets dry. My under eye area is the first to show fatigue, dry skin, etc. and coconut oil always helps. :-)

Not going to lie, I didn't love American Hustle. Maybe it had been talked up so much that my expectations were too high? The acting was brilliant, but I was definitely getting antsy to leave the theatre during the last 30 minutes or so :)

Mree said...

Those cabinets are fantastic!!
I haven't seen American Hustle but want to since it was filmed near my office.

Best, Mree

Jane said...

i was just going to look into coconut oil more. thanks for the link!

Ally {Life as I know it} said...

I haven't seen American Hustle yet but that's interesting you didn't care for Jennifer Lawrence's role. I'm not as crazy about her as everyone else is.

Shelby {Recent Somethings} said...

Loving this image. I just want to toss the sequins everywhere and ditch work with that clutch!

Amanda said...

I had similar feeling on American Hustle! Jennifer was funny but something seemed, off?

Those kitchen cabinets are beautiful. I use coconut oil for my hair per the advice of my aunt and mom, and it is amazing! It makes it so soft!

Wishing you a beautiful day!

Nicole Cors said...

Great picture. I love blush+gold, what a fab combo! I am a big fan of J Law- she was funny in the role, but do agreesomething was off.

Have a great week!

Is that a bowl of confetti on the desk? Is it me or is that a disaster waiting to happen. OH MY!?! It's pretty, but man....

Meanwhile... Amy Adams absolutely and completely made American Hustle for me. She was dazzling to watch. And so different than her character in Her. What an actress that girl is!

M.E said...

Going to see american hustle is on my to do list! Love the first inspiration picture :)

Jessica said...

I never thought of using coconut oil as a lip balm, but I love the idea. The harsh air is doing a number on my skin.

Laura said...

I saw American Hustle on Sunday and completely agree about Jennifer Lawrence! I couldn't warm to the character at all. Amy Adams was amazing, I loved her...and her fabulous hair! :)

emily | shell chicd said...

Bahhh oh no I'm sad to hear that about Jennifer Lawrence- love her! We opted for Her this weekend, but American Hustle is next on my list! And oh how I wish my desk was that sweet.

Darcy said...

I have actually been hearing a lot of people say they didnt think American Hustle was all they were expecting. Im waiting for it on redbox because of the mixed reviews!

i want my office to look like your pic!

Emma Henderson said...

Sounds like a lovely weekend! I have to make a concerted effort to track down some coconut oil...

apartment-wife.com said...

such a cliff-hanger- are you using the coconut oil as a hair mask? i keep hearing good things about that.. :)

Christa at Forever Young said...

I felt the same about American Hustle. Actually, I didn't even really care for the film, although I think I may be one of the few.
