Shopping

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, […]

Local and Handmade 2012!

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 […]

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 […]
