Shoppapalooza Sunday

So my good ol' overtime paycheck just came in, and besides finally purchasing the tortoise ASOS watch and grey croc print ASOS over-sized bag in my last post, here's the rest of my much needed purchases from over this weekend:
purple flowy one shoulder dress (via ASOS)
geometric baby doll dress (via F21)
leopard print burnout top (via F21)
khaki simple woven skirt (via F21 - which i bought to pair with the leopard top above)
tri-colored sequined skirt (via F21 & on a fab sale, i do love me some sequin)

Beyond these items i bought a bunch more staple wardrobe pieces like simple jersey dresses that I won't bore you with, buuuuutt! I am highly debating snagging up these babies as my last big purchase with this paycheck:
Gucci black leather flats

How much do you think they're worth? I really need to debate on whether or not these flats are worth what they are selling for, because I honestly destroy all my flats in a few months tops. real leather may help in this case, but i digress... need help/opinions please!

Any of you fine folks buy any fancy digs this weekend? Do share ;)

online shopping after hours

winter weekends = staying at home, cooking up a million baked goods to make the apt warm & absolutely delicious smelling, and cozying on the couch with the boyf & our giant microfleece blanket. oh, and the especially addicting favorite pastime of online shopping in the wee hours of mindnight - 4am. what's a girl to do?! well, after searching high and low through an abundance of cute items, i found a handful of key accessories that i'm almost positive i want. BUT, before i click the "complete purchase" button, i figured i'd like some additional feedback. so here we go, honest opinions time everyone!
Tortoise Shell Boyfriend Style Watch (via ASOS)
Square Face Boyfriend Style Metal Watch (via ASOS)
Faux Croc Bar Day Bag in grey (via ASOS)

And then of course, to follow up with my last post on finding some notable apartment accessories, i have below the following items that were definitely in my quirky taste, though not in my top "buy it now" list. have a looksie:
Walrus Ice Cream Scooper (via Modcloth)

And there you have it! Any good finds for you guys over the weekend? Do share :)

a whole lotta welcomes [back]!

hey gurls hey!

ok, so i've once again gone MIA on you guys but just know that i've been working my little tush off at the new job & have been overall just having a blast in my newly created "adult life," but i most certainly/sincerely have missed all of you and your posts that so brighten up my day.

tbh, i'm starting this blog up again because #1) it's been a super sloooow week for once, and #2) one of my best friends in real life has just started her own, wonderfully fabulous blog (welcome my betch: MoreThanJazz!)

now, to keep this on the shorter side i'm just going to pretend that i haven't been gone at all and just pick right back up with posts as soon as i have time. here we go, update numero uno!

i've been doing a lot of online shopping for bright/decorative new desk supplies now that the agency i work for has moved to our shiny new Boston office, and these are my most recent quirky favorite finds:

Hipper than Hippo Desktop Organizer
hippo pen holder (via Modcloth)
fat, lime green hippo. how can you not love this?

Bunny Paper Clips
bunny paperclips (via Modcloth)
so unnecessary, but my love for bunnies will never die

Come Bear-ing Coasters Set
bear skin coasters (via Modcloth)
let's face it, i am a clumsy mess of a fool and these will keep me from spilling all over my desktop...hopefully

Hidden Animal Teacups
hidden animal teacups (as seen on Luuux)
something to place on my bear coasters! obvi i need my daily morning coffee/tea, but i can't just have any boring old cup

i've also picked out a handful of deliciously decorative & colorful items for my apartment, but that shall come at a later post. after hastily traveling one place to another (client biz tripz), is there anything better than coming home to a well organized yet sprucefully fun home/office environment? not for me! anything beats drab stationary...that's for sure.

have a wonderful weekend, loves!
