What I am Loving This Week

So listen...I am totally digging an unorganized forum today, obviously. It is the freaking weekend, praise the lord. I deserve it. Do you all deserve it? I am certain that you do. I need to clue you all in to what has been on my mind this week. A lot of interiors. A lot of neckwear fashion. A lot of cuisine (which I did not make).  Sigh. Let's do it. 

This image has been on repeat in my head all week long. Like a broken record. For starters, where in the hell is that rug from? I adore it. And contrast piping on furniture? No brainer. So glam. 
Another glamazon space for your eyes. I am not afraid of red in the home, like some. This space is so warm and glamorous at the same time for me.  Going to need that red wreath for the holidays. I am certain of it. 
Miles Redd and the Backstreet Boys needs to quit playing games with my heart. That art installation is enough to stroke over. Does anyone else notice the fringed couch? I die. I have many times considered fringe being incorporated into our house, and I have many times talked myself out of it due to Stella's piss and vinegar nature. 
Spotted this image yesterday and about ran out to the store immediately to buy 100 yards of emerald green velvet fabric. I mean for serious. What a perfect addition to a rustic and sophisticated space.
On to my neckwear obsessions this week. Diamonds and leopard. Need I say more?
I do not care if this piece somewhat resembles a baby's mobile above their crib. It does have all of the elements. Little mirrors, dangling items. I wonder if it makes noise? If it does I am purchasing one immediately, if not sooner. 
Tassels on crack. Leave it to Tory to take a tassel that I already love and adore and multiply the impact and magnitude ten fold. I am obsessed with every image of Tory's 2013 Spring Collection that I have seen this week. It has taken the fun out of Fall for me. 
Laaaawwwwddd have mercy. Mercy. This trench is one in a million. The neck adornment is so killer. 
So on to what I have been craving this week. You know this girl loves quinoa. This quinoa fried rice looks absolutely incredible and WILL be made in the near future. Thinking of adding shrimp. 
These soba noodles look so amazing. I am really loving the brown rice noodles as of lately, so I might substitute those in for the soba's. We will see. Things might get super crazy up in here. 
Admittedly, I am not a huge sandwich person but I am willing to make an exception for this open faced beauty. I mean what is not to love? We have been watching Sopranos again and proscuitto has to be the most common word in every episode. Pesto, proscuitto, avocado, tomatoes and onions? I cannot think of something I would want more. 
These crunchy black bean tacos look super simple and incredibly nom. Nom nom nom. 
So there you have it. My brain dump for this week. I hope you all have fabulous weekends. Any big plans? Miss me? I miss you already! XOXO
