In 2011

Posted on: Saturday, December 31, 2011


2011 started off with a new addition to my life — Kitty. Early in the year, Geoff and I adopted a five month old kitten from a nearby shelter, causing my heart to be filled with an indescribable amount of love for this little furry creature.

ModCloth Spread the Cheer Event

Posted on: Friday, December 23, 2011


A few years ago I stumbled upon a little website called ModCloth. Of course, of course, I fell in love. I watched over a bit of time as they grew and had more exciting product and collaborations with bloggers. Fast forward to just a few short weeks ago when I discovered that the amazing Elizabeth of Delightfully Tacky had selected me to share ModCloth's Spread the Cheer Celebration with her and other wonderful bloggers. What is Spread the Cheer, you ask?

'Tis the Season

Around the holidays, I always see an explosion of festive projects popping up all around the internet. Oh, if only I had the time to make them all! And what better way to celebrate this year than to share some of my favorites with you?


My one proud crafty accomplishment this winter season has been these amazing Star Wars paper snowflakes! The instructions make them [almost] a cinch. Just grab your tiny scissors and cutting knife! See more after the jump.

I cannot even express how happy I am that the weekend is here! Retail during the holidays is so hectic and I spent nine hours on my feet (in these shoes!) today at work. Yikes! Some people may think I'm crazy, but there is a bit of charm in working retail during this time of year. While it's happening, it feels like borderline overload — but after the fact I always find myself romanticizing it!

Giveaway // Kate Sutton Write Every Day Planner

Posted on: Thursday, December 15, 2011


A couple weeks ago I posted an image on my Instagram of my planner and got tons of inquiries about what planner it was and where my readers could pick it up. Of course I love to share my Kate Sutton Write Every Day Planner — because, heck, it's the cutest planner ever!

A quick update this evening! I'm still somehow managing to be sick — that sore throat that developed right around my birthday is just not leaving. Yuck! I think my dry apartment is playing a big role in it sticking around. Now all I need is a humidifier!

Happy Tuesday, Minis! I don't have much to update on today, but wanted to share an outfit with you! It's pretty simple and basic, but the temperatures hit 40° today, so I figured that I would take advantage with some fancy tights. Oh, and of course I had to break in the other pair of Jeffrey Campbells that came in form yesterday!

Love and Death

I have been a bad blogger lately!

Between my now-full time job, getting enough sleep to function, and making runs to the post office, I feel like my time is super cramped. I dislike this feeling so much. Let's face it — taking my own outfit photos is tough. Sure, I have the tripod and remote, but I long for those days when Geoff and I would go on a walk to find a perfect location. Nowadays I'm just shooting against my living room wall. It's not bad, it's just not the same.

Today Geoff and I wandered down to the Pulaski Park Field House for the Renegade Craft Show Holiday Sale. It was wonderful regardless of the heavy crowds. Being there and seeing all of those awesome vendors made me miss doing craft shows! Maybe I can kick start that again soon...?

TGIF! Geoff and I started out the day by sleeping in — something I haven't done in a long, long time. Being a bit lazy was nice and relaxing. We all need those types of mornings, right?

For starters, from the bottom of my heart I must thank each and every one of you who sent me happy birthday wishes via Instagram, Facebook, Tumblr, and email. Yesterday was a really wonderful day and you all gave it that extra amazing push! Thank you!
