Spring Jam Weekend

April 29, 2013

This weekend was pretty crazy! It was Spring Jam, which is our last hurrah before finals. There was so much going on, and the whole weekend was packed with fun :) Here are some pictures:

It got up to 79 degrees, maybe even warmer. After the last week we had, this felt HOT (not complaining!)

I went crazy with the grapefruit this weekend, I ate four of them.

 Went to Lake Harriet on Friday with good friends since the weather was ah-mazing. Tank top: J. Crew (old). Pants: Banana Republic. Sunnies: Target. Purse: Coach (old). Belt: Target. Shoes: Sperry.  Bracelet: J. Crew. Watch: Fossil. 

After walking around Lake Harriet, we headed over to Sebastian Joe's for some of their famous raspberry chocolate chip ice cream!

My roommate and I tried honey and avocado face masks...I learned that I am allergic to avocados...

Went with friends to the Holi festival for Spring Jam.

Went to the sculpture garden to take pictures for an outfit post (will be posted tomorrow!)

In addition to all of this craziness I went to the Mat Kearney concert for Spring Jam and had a blast! It was a great weekend--definitely had my last hurrah before finals. 

Happy Monday!

The Persona of Fashion: Diva

April 25, 2013

This new series has been in the works for a looong time. I've been dreaming and brainstorming for weeks and the first post is finally ready!

So here is the explanation of the new series: The Persona of Fashion. I don't know about you guys, but I have certain accessories or articles of clothing that make me feel a certain way--I take on a new persona, if you will. This first post is inspired by my cat-eye sunglasses that when I put them on, I feel like a diva. That's right, like I'm channeling Queen Bey and Posh Spice. I worked my outfit around the sunnies to reflect my inner diva that emerges when I rock these babies! Photos taken by Megan Johnston. Check it out:

The inspiration.

Shoes: Target. Leggings: (borrowed from a friend!) Sweater: (also borrowed from a friend!) Necklace: Charming Charlie. Watch: Fossil. Bracelets: J. Crew, Forever Love. Sunglasses: Target. Clutch: (borrowed from my sister!)

This shoot was so much fun, I can't wait for the next one!

Donut Excursion

April 22, 2013

If I had to sum up this past weekend in one word: food. My friend Malorie and I went on a donut excursion Saturday morning. About a week ago my mom sent me this article about the best donut shops in Minneapolis. Being that I have proclaimed donuts as my favorite food, I had to check some of these places out! Mal and I started our excursion bright and early (for us college students) at 8am. We first hit A Baker's Wife's Pastry Shop. Here are some pics:

They were still warm when we ate them!

Lots of options!

We then proceeded to Mel-O Glaze Bakery 

There we saw these beauties:

(I'd prefer this to a birthday cake any day).

And, we discovered the elusive Basilica donuts!
I've been going to church at the Basilica of Saint Mary for over a year now. Let me just tell you, they have the best donuts (sure keeps me coming back!) After trying these raised and glazed bad boys on Saturday, I'm 90% sure it's a match!

Happy Monday!

Introduction Please

April 19, 2013

Welcome to My Inner Fabulous, formerly known as Friends Fun Fashion Food. This is my new official life + style blog. Thanks to everyone who has stuck with me and who has helped along the way!

I figure since I have renamed by blog and declared myself primarily interested in fashion (as seen here) that I will reintroduce myself. My name is Catherine and this blog has become a much larger part of my life than I anticipated. Blogging has been a wonderful creative outlet for me and I am continually inspired. I am so excited about this relaunch, and I hope you guys are too! I am a current student chronicling my adventures...and my outfits! I have a love/hate relationship with Minneapolis (usually love). I have a passion for all things relating to dogs, romance, volleyball, shopping, pop culture, J. Crew, donuts and twinkle lights. I am so excited to start this journey on my new blog! 

Please follow My Inner Fabulous by email or feel free to keep up with me on Twitter or Pinterest or Instagram. For those of you who are previous followers, you should continue to get emails when I post. If that is not the case, please let me know so I can fix it! 

I hope you stick around a while! 

Loving Lately+News!

April 18, 2013

I've been working really hard lately to try and come up with ways to make my blog better. I have this vision and I won't stop until I get there! Among other things, learning photoshop is part of revamping. I'm still new and finding my way, so no judgement!

Here are a few things I have been...
1. Kate Spade passport cover. I realize that this is a completely unnecessary accessory, but it's so cute and travel is constantly on my mind. Less than a month until I'll be jetting off to London!
2. My Revlon lipstick collection.
3. My new Clinique face wash. It doesn't dry out my skin!
4, 5. I tried out this new combination of bananas and peanut butter (inspired by my roommate) as a healthier way to curb my ever-aching sweet tooth.
6. May's Cosmo featuring Rachel Bilson is keeping me entertained while I elliptical. 

Also...part of revamping my blog means a rename. I'm really excited about it, and I even bought a domain to match! I don't want to reveal the new name until I have a new...logo to go with it! Guys, you have no idea how excited I am. This blog has become so huge to me and I just want to make it the best possible. I really hope you all will stick with me through this transition because I am so excited about it. Thanks for reading!


April 17, 2013

I'm really struggling with what to wear these days. Especially because my heart (and my calendar) are saying it's spring, but the weather is saying it's still winter. Here's yesterday's preppy casual look:

Denim: Gap. Sweater: Gap (old). Gingham: Forever21 (old). Watch: Fossil. Shoes: Chooka (They're new and I am so in love! Perfect for spring days, whether it's raining, or puddles are melting)

The Lowry

April 16, 2013

Last night I checkout out the Lowry in Uptown with my lovely roommates. It was very cozy and the Food was great! Here's a few pictures:

 I was just in the mood for a good burger (like I am so often), and The Lowry did not disappoint! 

Happy Tuesday :)

The Weekend

April 15, 2013

Here are just a few snapshots from my very laid back weekend!

Went to Al's Breakfast in Dinkytown on Friday with my mom. It was quite the experience! I've been meaning to go for a while, it was definitely worth it. Love me some french toast, and twinkle lights!

My mom and I also visited a used bookstore in Dinkytown called Book House:

It was really cute!

Then we hit the Clinique makeup counter at Macy's on Friday. We even scored some SWAG ("stuff we all get" in the words of Michael Scott).

I had dinner at Loring Pasta Bar in Dinkytown on Saturday with my sister: 

Chicken ravioli, yum. 

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
