Week Wrap Up: Spring Always Springs.

 

Apologies for the scant #shoplocal outfit phots! There is always plenty of #shoplocal jewelry, accessories, + outfits for all occasions. …Just not a ton of documenting this week.

Nonetheless!

Allow me to atone with my wisdom. Or rather, the wisdom of Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young.

No matter how long and tumultuous and unpredictable and unrelenting our winters are here in Rochester, NY – Spring Always Springs. No matter what. Even if it doesn’t feel like Spring right on the day that marks our vernal equinox, Spring Springs. That’s the natural cycle of life. No matter how long and tumultuous and unpredictable and unrelenting life seems now, if we trust ourselves and act kind to ourselves and to others–if we care for our surroundings wholly–spring will spring to us as well. We will find–and find again–that we are strong enough to weather any storm that every season brings.

Always know this as truth.

Shop Local. B is for Birthdays. B is for BarbaraEllen. B is for 28th Birthday Weekend.

Brought to you by The Nicole Jaclyn.
Look at these jewels.
This post is more for me than it is for you. Only because I love making lists, & I feel overwhelmingly compelled to recap/relive/record this 28th Birthday Weekend. Also, everyone should be sick by now of hearing about my Birthday Weekend. Ergo, one final 28th Birthday Gift to me: my own blog post on my own blog. Class.

 

LocalVore Birthday.
Term coined by my mama in a preparatory email she sent to plan these grand shenanigans. Her pitch: Eat Local. Shop Local. Roc-It-Up. Here are the highlights:

FRIDAY
March 8, 2013 – Day of my Birth.

Homemade Tiramisu.
Thanks  Momsly!





Homemade Cookie Cake.
The Rooms. Best I have ever.

















First thing I opened.
Last thing I took off.































28 feels extra special. Something about becoming more adult & still being in my 20’s.

Vanessa Virginia blouse from Anthropologie. Showers of office wishes & Facebook feeds. Pedis with my Mama {I am embarrassingly ticklish}. Homemade Italian din with the fam. Amazingly thoughtful gifts from the girls. Cheshire cocktails & Lux love with the friends.

SATURDAY
March 9, 2013 – 28 & 2 days old.

Geometric Flats.
Shop Peppermint. Also 15% off on Birthdays!!
ShopPeppermint.
Left

Right: Black Lace & Tea.







Thread.
Front & Back. Time for Spring.
















OPI Moneypenny Magnetic Mani.

Big Spoon.
Little Spoon.























Saturdays are meant to be celebrated. LocalVore theme made it #Roc.
Yoga at Tru. Shopping at ShopPeppermint & Thread. Lunch on Park Ave. The Little Bleu Cheese Shop in the South Wedge. Selfie Manis. Cuddling with the Pups. Freakishly exhausted because I am now 28.

SUNDAY
March 10, 2013 – Sundays in the Sun.

Clockwise from Left: Alex and Ani initials bangles.
Alex and Ani Philosophy {eco-friendly, positive energy}.
Homemade hand lettering card {Nicole} & Chakras {Shan}.
















Just drinking some Limeade on Park Ave.
(Ignore the snow. It was warm.)

























Truly, Sundays are a day of rest. 
Absurd breakfast {Tiramisu, herb-butter grilled cheese & tomato on rye–thank you Da’ Moe!–grape leaf, Coca-Cola, potato chips}. Indulgent facial, Scott Miller. Fabulous, most fabulous, day with my Lady Loves {Anj, Nicole, Shannon} which includes, but is not limited to, loitering on steps, lil’ bit a bridal, stalking an actor, Alex and Ani’s {most positive store everrr}, Sushi, & some seriously large laughs.

Goodnight.
Best
Birthday
Weekend
Ever.
