{finale at DVF F/W 2014, glitter falling on the runway}

Usually on a Friday I'd say TGIF, but lately, Fridays don't feel like Fridays. Weekends don't feel like weekends. All of the days kind of blend together. Does anyone else feel like this week flew by? Maybe it's because I didn't leave my couch on Monday (except to eat waffles) and didn't leave my apartment whatsoever between Sunday evening and Tuesday morning. I'm getting over a bad cold and another bout of insomnia. I've been a terrible sleeper all my life but some weeks are worse than others, and this one was a doozy. I'm hoping to catch up over the weekend.

So... no TGIF. But, cheers to the little things. Like surprising your loved ones with cupcakes. And flowers from sweet sorority sisters. And witty cards from knowing friends. And pretty new sneaks. And waffles for dinner. (<--- forgot to take a photo.)

I read a great quote recently that really resonated with me. "Life is like photography. You need the negatives to develop."

Brilliant, no?

Cheers to the little things, to developing, and to all of you. Have a great weekend.

P.S. The above photo is from the one and only show I went to during NYFW, and it was incredible. I meant to do a full recap here, but things have just been so crazy. Luck was on my side that day, though. I got to sit two seats over from Lisa Love (senior west coast editor of Vogue/Lauren Conrad's boss on The Hills) and Amy Astley (Editor in Chief of Teen Vogue) and right behind Anna Wintour. I haven't been that close to her since I interned at Vogue 10 years ago and we shared a terrifying elevator ride. (You can see the back of her head/signature bob at the bottom left of my photo!)
