Some mind gems to end the week.

  1. You know how everyone has those songs that just make you happy every time you hear them? Mine apparently point to me being a little bit of a pervert/cougar. Example: #1 feel good song: What Makes You Beautiful - One Direction (always and forever #1), #2 feel good song: Baby by Justin Bieber (pre-shithead stage, naturally). #3 feel good song: Diana - One Direction (...yeah, they get two..) Should I be kind of ashamed? Completely. Am I? Ha, nope.

  2. This article made me very happy for a few reasons: 1, that quote is SO f-cking stupid. I don't actually think it was Marilyn Monroe who said it, but I hate that quote, and the author of this hits the nail right on the head why. 2, I know Marilyn didn't actually say it (probably), but I think we should maybe stop putting the drama-loving homewrecking actress who died in her early 30's as a result of a severe drug addiction up on a pedestal? Maybe?

  3. Why is it that when you decide to diet, pizza has never looked so damn good? I want to run, I "like" running on the treadmill but I mean go outside, enjoy mother nature and torture myself because I actually hate running. Well, every night I go to sleep with the intention of going for a lovely morning jog, and I wake up and it's snowing, like even Mother Nature is saying to me "Not today girl, maybe next month." And, well I can't argue with Mother Nature. girl-thing-63

  4. On that note, I'm really ready to  switch up complaining about the snow to the heat. I have many plans on my list and none of them include snow, slush, or anything under 20 degrees. So Spring, hurry it up please & thanks.

  5. Friday Night Lights. Do you have Netflix? Waaatch it, and try not to begin the binge watching by the 4th episode, just try it I dare you. When I grow up, I want my future marriage to be Tami & Coach Taylor's, y'all.

  6. I am patiently awaiting on this from Stella & Dot to arrive, mostly so I can organize all of the goodies (read: 20 different lipglosses) I insist on keeping in my bag (you never know what color you will need, even though I consistently only use 2...), and also because I giggle every time I call it by it's name: pouf. he he he1781988_691115454242661_1423152190_n

  7. I get irrationally angry when companies don't ship to Canada. It's 2014, get with the program here! Talking to you, Converse.

Addicted to the Denim.

Well let's face it, there could be worse things to have a penchant for, amIright? Confession: I friggin' love jeans. Any type of jeans, black, skinny, distressed, colored, you name it  - except floral print, because sorry but they do not flatter anyone. If I actually took the time to count how many pairs I had, we'd for sure be in the double digits, but I'm not giving an actual number for fear of the judgement I'd incur. I'm currently on the absolute hunt to replace my favorite pair that I recently wore out. They were the perfect amount of distression (? is that a word? Making it one.), and the right balance of slouch while still being in skinny territory and not venturing into boyfriend jeans. But, sigh, I wore a hole right beside the bum and from that you can't come back, no matter how many times you iron on those denim patches in vain (thanks for nothing, Wal-Mart.). So until they can be replaced, I've been day-dreaming up outfits that will include my new babies when I finally find them, as well as some favorites I wear on the daily. For real, my current job has its perks for sure, but the main one is I can wear jeans every single day. My current favorite are courtesy of GAP: here, here and here.  c600x533 c600x600

What I Wore.

A day late, but who actually does anything productive on New Years Day? I certainly did not, unless you call marathon'ing Breaking Bad and napping productive. HAPPY 2014! I have a pretty good feeling this year is going to be fantastic, I'm already a day and a half in and it's prett-ay nifty. Anywhoodles, here's the mix from the last little while, enjoy. IMG_5491 ~"Just think that when you wear this sweater, it's like me giving you a hug." My mamabear knit me this insanely beautiful blue swing sweater for Christmas, and it is fabulousIMG_5492Leopard print leggings, I've loved you for so long and now you're finally mine. The collection of leopard print anything I have is getting quite impressive.
