So long and short its hot here in Philly, today while I was driving the temperature in my car read 104 degrees I could feel myself slowly melting while waiting at the stop light that seemed to be taking an eternity. This is my first full summer in my house and not in an apartment complex with a pool as an amenity. While I was in Florida for college there were pools on every corner and while I was home for the summer in Charlotte with my family there was a swimming pool at my house, soo this summer, especially with this extreme heat, feels torturous without a pool to dip into. To torture myself even further while sitting at my desk I decided to browse through Elle's beautiful feature of celebrity pools..and then I broke into tears or was that just sweat???

It seems like we can't catch a break here in the Northeast all winter we get pounded with snow storms and so far this summer we have had two heat waves and its only June. Some mornings at 830 while I am walking the dogs and it is already 85 degress out , the though of putting a outfit together that is cute AND that will help me stay cool is too much. It seems like Kourtney Kardashian isn't having that dilemma in the Miami heat, she looks cute as a button daily..

Hi my name is Jen and I have a new obsession : Ikat, which is all the rage right now. I am trying to find ways to incorporate it into my house right now, I am thinking about getting some pieces of fabric and framing it for one of my hallways not sure yet but I NEED this pattern in my life, don't you love it ?!!!

Life has been full of ups and downs for me this past week, it made me realize i really do not have much control of what's going on around me! It's so easy to get caught up in the rat race of trying to portray a perfect life but you know what it is completely EXHAUSTING! How much more refreshing is it to embrace the fact that you aren't perfect, you don't have the perfect shoes for the dress all the time, you spill the milk, you skip the gym for an entire week, you forget to pay a bill on time, you argue with your significant other ( a lot ), you spend an entire Saturday in bed watching reality TV eating ice cream...I bow out gracefully, Im done the rat race because life is too much fun to try to be perfect all the time..
