Fall Trend: Metallic Polish

Any time Chanel comes out with a new nail polish, it is destined to be the next big thing in nail polish colors.  And this season (Fall 2011), it's graphite.  A beautiful metallic sparkly polish that glitters in the light.  It's beautiful!  Look at this:

Isn't it beautiful?

Under The Apple Tree: White Denim Cut-offs

I love the way white shorts makes you look.  It definitely ups the class factor a notch or two, but the laid back cool of the frayed denim keeps this look unfussy.  I paired my cut-offs with a grey tank, and white gladiator sandals to keep it easy.

What do you pair with your white cut-offs?

Bar Exam--Done!!!

Ugh!  I just took the Indiana Bar Exam & I am worn out!  I took it at the Indy Convention Center. It is a 2 day exam: the first day is 7 hours of writing, and the second day is 6 hours of multiple choice.  Talk about Exhausting!!!  It's pretty much a top secret ordeal and electronics of any kind are not allowed in the testing facility.  But, here are some pictures of the other parts of my day, the room (taken a couple weeks before), and pictures from after the exam finished--all outside the testing facility:

Testing Room; about 600 applicants sit here to take the exam.

 How do you like the pictures?  Do you know anyone who "survived"? hahaha

Indy Weekender: Smokehouse On Shelby

This weekend I went to the Smokehouse on Shelby in the Fountain Square district of Indianapolis.  It was so cute inside & it had the best pulled pork ever!!! (Which is saying a lot since I've even eaten at Slow's BBQ in Detroit, MI)  I ordered the pulled pork sandwich which was served "correctly" with sauce on the side (aka.--slow cooked without sauce). Here are my pictures:

Looks good, huh?!...Have you been here?

Recipe: Broccoli Co-slaw

I know veggies are important, so, I try to find new & fun ways to get more into my diet.  I love the broccoli co-slaw at my local grocer's deli, but it's so expensive. So, here is a delicious recipe I created to fix my cravings on a much cheaper budget:

Broccoli Co-Slaw Consistency

1 head broccoli (chopped into little pieces) (you can use the stalk hearts, too, if you like)
1 red onion (chopped)
1/4c peanuts
1/4c raisins
2T fat free plain yogurt
2T light mayo
Juice from 1/4 of a lemon (Strained)
1-2T honey
3 slices bacon (crumbled)
Salt & pepper to taste

Throw all ingredients into a bowl and stir until everything is well incorperated. Serve as a side or eat for a snack.  Serves about 4....or 2 hungry bloggers.

Broad Ripple Night Life

Broad Ripple is on the north side of Indianapolis and is always packed with people.  I love going out and people watching there in the summer.  Here is a picture of how packed the streets get:

I love it!  So much fun.  Have you ever seen a place so full of people like this at night?

Summer 2011 Trend: Flat-form Shoes

A great trend this summer is flat-form shoes.  I luv this trend because it is comfortable but still adds length to legs. Here's my take on this trend:

Lavender Tank - Old Navy
White Shorts - Forever 21
White Flat-form Shoes - Jacobson's
Brown Leather Clutch - Michael Kors
Brown Sunglasses - Target
Wooden Bracelet - Vintage 

Would you wear this trend?

Indy Weekender: The Canal

Last weekend I took a walk on the Indianapolis Canal.  At the end was a little brown cottage-like building, a restaurant called Creation Cafe.  At the cafe I grabbed a beer, watched the gondola's with Parisian-esque workers go by, and enjoyed the beautiful view of the Indianapolis skyline. Here are my pictures from the walk:
