Spring jacket lust

Spring jacket lust

I hate shopping for clothes for myself. Especially if they’re expensive clothes, regardless of whether they’ll last me forever or not. The last time I bought a new coat was from Target two springs ago, seen below: This coat is cute, and it still works, […]

May 2012 Birchbox

May 2012 Birchbox

I’m still into makeup and taking better care of my skin/body, even though I haven’t posted about it in forevers. I’m gestating, not dead! Of course, between being tired/distracted and that whole “nursing school” thing, I’ve been quietly receiving my Birchboxes every month and not […]

I want some boots

I want some boots

Something chunky, clunky, maybe with buckles? Something I can tuck jeans into, if I’m feeling saucy. Definitely something cute. Not knee-high, since my calves are too fat for that. Maybe about mid-calf? Grey, if possible! Out of these, I’m kind of leaning toward the Nine […]

OMG, shoes

OMG, shoes

These, my friends, are my shoes. Do you see how the tennis shoes (almost entirely skate shoes) outnumber the cute ones? This needs to be remedied, posthaste. But first, I really needed to organize my goddamned front closet. I know I need to get rid […]

Makeup bonanza

Makeup bonanza

So, this happened last night after work: I asked my friend Amanda to do a makeup intervention on me, since I’ve never actually learned how to buy, put on, or wear makeup, and she’s a bit of a girly-girl. She suggested that we go to […]

Cleanse Me

Cleanse Me

So, I’m thinking of doing a cleanse. I know. I KNOW. I know what you’re going to say, just hear me out. Basically, I need a mile-marker. I’ve stop-started this whole “change my eating habits” thing so many times, the lines between healthy eating and […]

32 Before Thirty-Two

32 Before Thirty-Two

So far in my life, I’ve made two attempts at broad “life lists”: the 101 things in 1001 days list, and the 30 Before 30 list that I put here. Both had pretty sad, pathetic results. So I should obviously try again, RIGHT? Right. I’m […]

Food Angst

Food Angst

I had a mini angst-fest on Twitter yesterday about my relationship with food, which I think is something I really need to work out for myself. Here are some of the things I wrote: I should be able to drop weight simply by controlling my […]

ASOS Sale!

ASOS Sale!

The stuff in the clearance section of the ASOS site might be my savior for cute dresses at low prices. Freeeee shippppinnggggggg, too! What do you think? These ones are fairly adaptable to different looks, so it wouldn’t be weird if I wore them more […]

No Pants November?

No Pants November?

I’m wearing a skirt for the second day in a row! Can you believe it? (Skirts are actually really comfortable. Why haven’t I figured this out before?) So, as a way to force my hand in transitioning over into being more fancy, I’m thinking about […]
