cotton candy

woops! my post got timed incorrectly today! happy friday!

i love a good window seat. last weekend i flew out to florida to see my husband on tour. as we reached 30,000 feet in the air, i couldn't help but look out at the sun shining through the clouds. for some reason (probably because i woke up SUPER early), the clouds looked like cotton candy! here is my fun cotton candy inspiration for the day! happy weekend!

when is the last time you ate cotton candy?

style icon: marion cotillard

i've got a new girl crush- marion cotillard! she's in two of my recent favorite movies- inception and midnight in paris (if you haven't seen either of these- 1. you are crazy... and 2. what are you waiting for? rent them right now!). i love her french accent and her charming romanticism!

gorgeous photos!

public service announcement- don't smoke. it's bad for you. and really gross.
