Dreaming of Sunshine

Today we celebrate the end of the week, the last Friday of March, and the continuation of spring.  Spring is probably my favorite month, but I’m not such a fan of the whole “April showers deal.”  Although, it does bring May flowers along with my birthday, so I can’t complain too much 😉

Oh what I would give to be running along these waves and soaking up the sunshine.  I think my hair could really use a good bought of sun and maybe some lemon or sun-in.  I’ve never dyed my hair but with all the time I’ve spent in the office and not to mention NYC winter, it’s been getting a bit dark at the roots.  Not that I’m vain or anything, I just love my blonde hair and would like to keep it that way (but without spending huge amounts) Not too difficult to ask.

IMG_5945This wonderful friend of mine has become a pretty close pen-pal and we enjoy sending one another goodies through snail mail.  Usually I send some of my latest and greatest baked goods and she sends me some fabulous treats from Hawaii where she goes to school.  When I arrived home from work and the gym last night I had a box sitting on our doorstep with all of this fabulousness.

I’ve always had a love for anything and everything Hawaiian.  My family used to joke that I would just uproot myself and move there but the cost of living and the fact that I’m an ocean away from any family sort of deterred me.  Of course that’s essentially me in NY except 2,000+ miles of land in between me and any family.  Well, I guess I have a cousin on the east coast but we still haven’t met up.

It was brought to my attention that two weeks from this Sunday I will be running my next half marathon.  Um, excuse me?  That crept up on me.  But, no matter because I am beyond excited for my best friends to arrive and spend the weekend exploring my favorite spots and show them my town. 🙂  We may not break any records, but we are going to have a blast and enjoy every moment of our girl’s weekend.

Any Frozen fans out there?  Found this on Pinterest and was in love.  But really.

Lastly, I’ve been in the market for a pair of sunglasses.  It must be all that summer dreaming and it can’t hurt to start looking early, especially because I’m so picky about how the frames look on my face.  Been blessed with cheekbones and some chipmunk cheeks, which aren’t the best to carry off some of the popular frames (at least in my picky point of view).  I’ve heard of various frames – Ray Ban, Hobie, Kate Spade, etc.  and more recently heard about Warby Parker.

Spectrum Sun

From what I have researched and seen from some of my coworker’s frames, they are classy, crisp, and fresh. This perfectly fits my style, or what I think is my style.  As a matter of fact, they recently launched a new collection called the “Spectrum Sun Collection” just in time for the sunshine months.

I’m thinking these would be perfect for lounging on the beach somewhere, no? It exudes spring and summer with flowers, and freshly cut grass (if that exists in the city), and iced coffee.

These are just a couple examples from Warby Parker because to me, that’s the epitome of spring.  I’m a personal fan of everything Tortoise related, so I’ll be on the hunt to find a store in order to test them out.  What are some of your favorites?
