I am obsessed with this shirt from Vineyard Vines. It has a nice quality thickness, great cut, and I love the green and white stripes. I just got it in last week, and have already worn it a couple times. No pictures of me in it because I'm getting over the fly, but the photos … Continue reading Obsessed with this shirt
Literally, the 3 easiest ways to wear a scarf
I love scarves and I love estate sales. What do those two things have in common? You can almost always find beautiful scarves at an estate sale! I found my favorite Laura Ashley scarf at an estate sale down the street. I think it was $1, may have been less because they are always available … Continue reading Literally, the 3 easiest ways to wear a scarf
What if… (Vampire Diaries addition)
There was another group of students in the high school that was also becoming vampires/ werewolves and they're out there not knowing they are basically paralleling this other group. AND THEN, they randomly meet up doing some vampire crap and are like "oh, you're a..." "and you are, too?" "Whaaaaaat?" I'd watch it. Yes, that … Continue reading What if… (Vampire Diaries addition)
OMG, am I boooooring?
I was driving home from a work meeting at Fall Creek Falls State Park yesterday and was thinking, "man, I am boring. When did that happen?"

Better than mimosas
What can be better than a mimosa you may ask? Why, a peach bellini! I was wandering around the local liquor store looking for some Veuve (they have a crap champagne selection and nothing is organized well), and I walked past this Stirrings Simple Peach Bellini mix. The packaging got me, it looked so good! … Continue reading Better than mimosas
No spend August – Update
