currently coveting: J.Crew

Jenna Lyons! You have done it again.
Per usual, J.Crew is on my radar this season with a pretty epic collection. I am loving the simple pieces, gold accents, graphic touches and most importantly elephants. Almost every item is drool worth and I really want to rack up that credit card bill I just paid off with all of it.Unfortunately, I seem to have found some sort of rational behavior recently, so that just won't do. Le sigh. Instead, I want to share my favorites items with you guys and live vicariously through those who can in fact splurge on themselves at the moment.

Wednesday's can be a drag. Mid-week with the weekend seeming so far away and work seems to always pile up and never end. Lucky for you, I have my fool-proof Wednesday playlist to share. These 10 songs are my go-to's to get work done and stay in the best of moods.

one// Thunder Clatter by Wild Cub

two// You Are The Best Thing by Ray LaMontagne

three// Paris by Magic Man

four//Doses & Mimosas by Cherub

five//The Mother We Share by CHVRCHES

six//Global Concepts by Robert DeLong

seven//Chocolate by The 1975

eight//Somebody Loves You by Betty Who

nine//Supersoaker by Kings of Leon

ten//Steal My Kisses by Ben Harper

Do you guys have any songs that keep you going on a tough day?

carry on essentials

I tend to be a really terrible over-packer. Some may use the term 'chronic over-packer'. But once that bag is more than likely checked, the carry-on is the most important traveling accessory. One wrong move wit the carry-on and your whole flight can be ruined. Believe it or not, I like to keep my carry-on simple and organized. Just the essentials to avoid digging around for boarding passes or chapstick.

First things first, the entertainment. A good iPad/tablet case is great for not only protecting your electronics, but to stash boarding passes and other important papers. In addition to the electronics, I always tote around a few magazines. They are the perfect distraction to help pass the time. Throw in a good pair of headphones and a juice pack for your phone/tablet and all of the entertainment needs are covered.

The bag is pretty important as well. Large enough to comfortably fit all of your belongings and lots of pockets are a must. I always carry cuticle cream to keep my hands soft, chapstick for my lips and a big scarf to keep warm. Lastly, there is nothing worse than that yucky and dirty feeling I have once I get off the plane. I like to bring make-up wipes for a quick refresh.  

What are your carry-on essentials?
