Wonderful Workspace ::: Kristen from Bliss at Home

I like to check out offices, snooping if you will. I love seeing workspaces and how people set them up and what works for them. 

Recently The Office Stylist had a tour of Bliss at Home's Kristin Cadwallader's AMAZING home office, and I was absolutely enamored.

Tech Time ::: iPhone 6 Rumor Mill

Have you been keeping up on the latest with the upcoming iPhone 6 and the soon to follow iPhone 6 "phablet?"  I'd dare call them both phablets, but I digress.

Totally Obsessed ::: Lo and Sons Catalina Weekender

All photos by {accordingtoame}

A few weeks back I mentioned I finally ordered my Lo&Sons Catalina. And then they put out the Indigo a little over two weeks ago now. And I had to have it because it is Navy. So now I do.

Tech Time ::: GOkey Fob

All images and video via GoKey Indiegogo

Remember how I said I have a problem regarding Kickstarter, and probably should avoid Indiegogo for the same reason? Well, I need to. I really do.  Because poking around on these sites is dangerous. Poking around on Indiegogo caused me to discover the GoKey.

Must Try ::: Athlete Eats

All photos by {accordingtoame} except where noted

In my (terribly flawed) attempts to eat healthier after realizing that I've gotten myself back to where the only pants that fit me are my "fat pants", I decided to head out and try the fare at a new local haunt called Athlete Eats.

Weekend Update ::: How to Be

Photo by my sister, please don't hork it.

This is a more heavy than usual Weekend Update.  

I totally baited you with that adorable and wildly unflattering photo of my nephew scaling me on Mother's Day in a failed effort to lick the ice cream cake we got for my mom.  But it's moments like that, that remind me why I need to be grateful.

Test Driven ::: Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelee

All photos by {accordingtoame}

These colorful little jars of awesome have been getting the full workout now for a couple of months, and I am pretty much in L-O-V-E.  

I am not typically a gel or cream blush kinda girl, but I was looking for perhaps a lighter feeling option besides my beloved powdered cheek stains for Summer. Perhaps, something that would stain my cheeks and tolerate sweating, but still feel super light on my skin, and help me scale down the layers I trowel on every morning for the heat and humidity we're already experiencing. Ok were experiencing. It's barely 50 degrees today...

Wednesday Wow ::: Julia & Shane's Striking Kansas City Wedding

 All photos by Meagan and Nate via StyleMePretty and the Meagan and Nate blog, 
and used with the permission of both the photographer and the couple.

Is that guestbook and J|S sign not completely incredible?!

Trolling around the net recently, my attention was jolted by the amazing stationery and decor from Julia and Shane's truly modern, and incredibly beautiful Kansas City wedding.

Tech Time ::: SNAP Connectors

 All images, gifs and video kindly provided by the SNAP! team
This is the desk/car mount

As you have picked up on by now, I am a total Kickstarter-slash-gadget dork, and the majority of things I end up backing are in some relation to my phone, either making using my phone more convenient, charge it easier, or using my phone to track something, or track itself...

Must See ::: Do you know about "Chalkboard Mag"?

Chalkboard online magazine was created by the founders of Pressed Juicery that is centered on health and holistic lifestyles, and it's friggin' amazing.  I surprisingly had never heard of it until I read the #GSD on its founder, Suzanne, on Meg Biram's blog a few weeks ago.

Top Secret ::: Sonia's Travels/

Since we're starting to get into prime travel and vacation season, I thought I would share a little secret of mine named SONIA GIL.  Well, I wouldn't call this a big secret, since this stunning woman has won the well-deserved Webby twice, having just won her second by a landslide.

Tech Time ::: Silicon Valley on HBO

All images via HBO and Silicon Valley HBO Tumblr

My husband and I have been totally obsessed with the show Silicon Valley on HBO since it started (well before that, when we saw previews...).  

We're both huge fans of TJ Miller, and the lead in music makes us miss his show Mash Up something awful...but when we saw Thomas Middleditch, TJ Miller and Kumail Nanjiani on @Midnight before the show started and knew we would be in for a great show. All three are hilarious.

Must Have ::: Tieks Ballet Flats

All photos by {accordingtoame} unless otherwise noted

In the vast array of shoes one has at their disposal, there are very few pairs that actually make the cut in this "comfort trumps all" world of mine.  Sure, many are beautiful, and many catch my eye. Some even get purchased, only to languish in a discarded pile in the corner. But, most days you'll find me in a pair of men's no-fray navy low-top slip-on Chuck Taylor's from the huge stockpile I have amassed.

Ok, probably every day.

Weekend Update ::: Rolled out the Blue Carpet

Yay it's finally the weekend again! And it will be a beautiful one, at that!  Can you even believe it is MAY already? I got an email today from my aunt reminding me about our annual family picnic being a month away already.  What happened to this year already....

Totally Obsessed ::: Ikea Raskog Cart

Screenshot from Ikea Catalog

My kitchen is tiny, and often looks like a bomb went off.  There's a reason I crop my food photos in SO CLOSE.  Who am I kidding, my entire house looks like a bomb went off all the time.
