calling all shoes & handbags

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10

Fresh off of a closet cleanup and just in time for spring, lately I've been on the hunt for those couple pairs of shoes and that nice new handbag to update my wardrobe. Of course I've found more than enough to satisfy my February wish list! With warm weather around the corner, I'm looking forward to buying colorful and bright accessories this season!

decorating. organizing. thinking. changing

Hi readers & fellow bloggers:

Yes, I am alive and well, and no, I have not taken another hiatus from blogging. My excuses for this long overdue post range from taking time to grow my book collection, decorate and organize my apartment, and downright laziness. You would think the "snow day" we received about a week ago (no joke, snow in New Orleans) would have allowed me some time within the four walls of my apartment to blog non stop, but really the unbearably cold weather only glued me to my couch with remote in hand. 
But in all seriousness, these last couple weeks have in other ways been very productive. While we are only one month into 2014, I already feel like this year will be a life changer. I have recently been spending quite a bit of time with new friends, exploring new places, and doing new things. And of course my love affair with New Orleans only continues to grow! I'm also in the very early stages of a project that seems to combine everything I love. That's all I can really say about it at the moment, but I'm hoping to be able to share more with you as it continues to grow and evolve. I couldn't be more excited about it though! Things are moving and changing very quickly and it sometimes feels like I barely have time to do laundry these days. And while change is change and it can sometimes but scary, I know it can only be good!

On Day 19 of no shopping....I shopped

Hello Readers! I hope you guys had a fabulous Monday. Today I recovered from a weekend well spent. Yes, you heard it S.P.E.N.T. And that's just what I did, spend money. I really do wish I could have felt the joy and pride behind being able to say I went a whole month without shopping. However, I'm not sure the feeling would compare to coming home with some new purchases. My sister visited New Orleans this weekend and what better way to bond than by visiting H&M, Urban Outfitters,  and Anthropologie in the French Quarter? Neither one of us was a very good influence on the other. But it happened, it's done, and I've accepted it. There's always February.....or March. On a positive note, it's back to showing you guys my amazing new finds. Here are just a few of the items I've snagged recently. Enjoy!

Camouflage Jacket: BCBGeneration
Black tank: H&M
Gold necklace: H&M
Beanie: Urban Outfitters
