Thursday Blues

So apparently in addition to “no shop January” (OMG is it February yet?!) it’s “no make bed January” as well! Okay, well, it’s this getting up at 5am and driving 3 hours round trip to address car repairs. *sigh*

My outfit today:




Cardigan: Boden
Dress: Kate Spade
Belt: Kate Spade
Shoes: Christian Louboutin

I spent the majority of my afternoon tucked in with my pillows on my bed half asleep-half reading a book. The weather was SO amazing here today (low 70’s!!) the kids spent the afternoon outside!!

Highlight of my day? My service advisor replacing the battery in my key fob, no charge. Can I just say, taking the cars to the dealership is the BEST EVER?


It’s the little things y’all!

Until next time,



So today was a TOTAL slump day for me. Let’s just say my head is spinning, and we are prepping for tax season at the office. Combine that with a migraine I’ve had off/on since before Christmas (this happens from time to time), with whiplash (thank you oldest child!!), and well, yeah. This is the ONLY photos I took of my outfit:



Blouse: Thrifted (no tag, love the colour!) it was maybe $3?
Cardigan: Kate Spade, picked up at It’s a Wrap in Hollywood (I admit to stalking it for almost 6 months, waiting for the price to drop!!)
Pants: Banana Republic
Necklace: Kate Spade
Shoes: Christian Louboutin

And today my final purchase of 2014 arrived, well, my husband’s final purchase. He claims this is my anniversary present, but we shall see about THAT. So, meet Rajah:



Isn’t he adorable?! Out of all the Kate Spade clutches and coin purses I picked up last year, he is by FAR the best. For now he will sit on my dresser, not sure when he will go out for his first public debut. I’m just super excited to have him, as sometimes I have waited TOO long for a whimsical piece like this (as I did get him for less than half of retail) to go on sale and end up not getting it (hello Shanghai Take Out bag! I’m looking at you here!)

So now begins the most difficult part of #noshopjanuary as all my end of December purchases have arrived (I take that back, I have one more coming tomorrow, except it’s Christmas gifts for 2015. So the box will go straight in the garage), and that’s it for fun mail! That’s what I love most about shopping, the package waiting on my doorstep when I arrive home.

Yes, I am aware I have a problem. I relate with Becky Bloomwood of Shopaholic fame far too much!

Happy Wednesday!!

Until next time,
