Mountain Chic

Reflections and observations on culture, food, style and travel

My friends.  While stylish and beautiful living is my passion and the subject of this blog, let’s not forget that the absolute definition of chic is to be an interesting person.  It’s cool to look good, but it’s even better when you can hold a stimulating conversation.  With that in mind, check this space on Fridays for some of the week’s most fabulous features from around the Web.  Use what you learn here to be witty and well-informed as you head off to weekend soirees.  Or, just take a TGIF moment to enjoy some of the articles and pics you may have missed.  Thanks so much for reading!  Have a great weekend.

1.  #IfIOnlyHad24HoursIWould: This hashtag was trending on Twitter this week.  My favorite? “#IfIOnlyHad24HoursIWould spend it with my in laws because it would be the longest 24 hours ever” (@JasonXtron).  Hilarious!

3.  This Sheryl Sandberg quote provided me with inspiration this week!

4.  Mmmmm…  The best burgers in the US

5.  Emily Schuman, creator of one of my favorite blogs, Cupcakes and Cashmere, released her first totally fab, totally wearable clothing line on Shopbop and Nordstrom.

6.  I found Same B.M.I., Very Different Beach Body fascinating.
