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,…

Who wants a shopping idea list of things that are local and handmade, just in time for the holidays? I DO, AND MAYBE YOU DO TOO. Gifts for Her Knitted lace shawl from Alma’s Knit Shop Raven bleach hoodie by The Whatnot Stand Jersey scarf…

New set of shades

New set of shades

Now that we’re getting towards the end of the year, I’m once again on the search for a new pair of glasses. My trek last year ended with me getting these bad boys, which I actually don’t wear on a regular basis: This year, I…

October Bluum Box

October Bluum Box

I first found out about Bluum boxes while wandering around watching mommy videos (yuck, I know, haha) on YouTube. I love getting my Birchbox every month; it’s like receiving a surprise Christmas present every month! Sometimes I even forget I’m signed up for it, until…

Garage sale haul!

Garage sale haul!

  This weekend was pretty righteous, as far as garage sale hauls go. I managed to swindle my way into getting a bunch of stuff that’s pretty awesome (and cute to boot!) for not very much money. Setting out with $40 and my pal Alicia…

OMG, SHOES (Pt. II)

OMG, SHOES (Pt. II)

Baby’s first pair of shoes! It’s probably a little premature, but come on! We found these at a garage sale today for 50¢, so basically we had to buy them. The same garage sale had baby Keens, but I figured we should stop at one…

November 2011 Birchbox

Hooray, my November Birchbox finally arrived! Actually, it arrived last week, I just didn’t have time to go through it until today. I signed up for Birchbox (referral link) last month, at probably the WORST POSSIBLE TIME, right after the 10th of the month, which…

Shoegasm

Shoegasm

Holy crap, you guys. Was I talking about shoes lately? I HAD NO IDEA ABOUT THE SHOES! Today I followed a post on SFGirlByBay, one that featured some deliciously witchy/pilgrim-y shoes, and I went temporarily blind. BLIND. BECAUSE OF THE SHOES. My blindness-causers, let me…

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…

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…
