Princess Picks: Spring Edition

Can you feel it? The lighter, warmer, air blowing through town, the pitiful excuse for Wednesday’s Snowsquesterpocalypse? Spring is (finally) on its way to the District! I’m excited, and have been ready for it – are you? Lately, I’ve been inspired by spring related things to embrace more time outdoors, and less time bundled up:

Sparkling Champagne with Strawberries Jello Shots

This weekend I indulged in the infamous jello shots at Millie & Al’s – how can you resist when that lightbulb lights up? This is a more sophisticated version of the traditional orange and red plus vodka variety. I’d puree the strawberries and layer them at the bottom for faster consumption (priorities). Find the recipe here.

Art Deco Jewelry 

This art deco necklace has got me in the mood for all things Great Gatsby (the movie comes out in May).

Denim + Leopard Print + Gold + Black Leggings

Essentially my default weekend uniform for when I’m hungover and need to go to the P Street Whole Foods (for the Hot Bar, of course).

Lilly Pulitzer Acrylic Wine Glasses

Gorgeous colorful prints on (nearly) indestructible acrylic – I can almost feel the afternoon sun basking my face thinking about enjoying a drink from these. See all the great colors and prints at the LP website.

Adorably Chic DIY Cat Flats

I’ve not-so-secretly wanted the Marc Jacobs mouse flats for years – especially this jelly version. Upgrade yourself on the food chain, and save some many dollars in your wallet with these cute DIY cat flats found at KITTENHOOD.


Princess Picks

So as part of my New Years Resolution (people are still doing those in February, right?), I wanted to try to take more pictures. Even Princesses need goals and hobbies – I can’t just be lolly-gagging around the palace that is my rent-controlled apartment all the time.

Anyway – I went to the Columbia Heights Target, which is that odd place in the Universe that is planted firmly in both Heaven and Hell. My fellow DC subjects – you know what I’m talking about. We have the amazing Target items and discounts at our fingertips – even groceries! But how many times have I gone to Target for paper towels to find an entire isle of empty shelves – not a single roll of paper towels to be found.

I’m bottling the rest of this rant up until a friend brings up the issue again during Happy Hour (or mentions the P Street “Whorefoods”). Now to the photos:

Beautiful Springy decor with Tibi vibes. The two end tables would look beautiful pushed together as a single coffee table, and the poppy colored tray would be perfect way to transport morning coffee to the balcony/roofdeck. Find the rest of Target’s Modern Cottage collection here.

Great candle packaging (and price!). Capri Olive one was my favorite – it smelled earthy and complex.

Snagged these Adidas Supernova running shoes from DSW around the corner. They look like they may have come from Outerspace, but that’s part of the appeal.
