Yes, I know.
It looks like I'm doing a jig in the photo above. Now that we have that out of the way...

I crossed something off my list of 2014 resolutions and it's not even February yet! Last night, I bought an armchair. That's right. It's been 24 hours and it's already taken the place in my heart reserved for "The Love of my Life". I came across it at the Salvation army for only $30 and it was exactly what I was looking for. It was already worn in, it was big enough to nap in, and had the perfect nooks toward the top for my head to rest in. And can we talk about the fact that I had budgeted $400 for the perfect one (I know, I know...I was really going all out for this armchair)? SO YOU GUYS...if I don't want to hang out with you because I have a date with my armchair, I apologize. But I don't...because I have no shame in being in love with a piece of furniture.

On a less strange note, I got a new phone case that I'm actually head over heels in love with. For a few months I decided I liked the look of my phone without a case, which lead to me cracking both the back and the front screen. Then the Born Pretty team reached out about a review and I gave in and opted for a case in one of my favorite colors, mustard (if you couldn't tell how much I loved it from my blog design). But I'm actually starting to love having a case more. For one thing, it's such a bold color that it makes it easy to spot when my room is covered in clothes and food. And second of all, just look at that design on the back! It's covered in little houses and buildings that actually stick out to create a fun texture. A winner? INDEED. I wish the edges came out a little bit more to give my front screen a little bit more protection, but so far no further damage has come to my phone. Victory!


  1. You look like you are having such fun ( I do like this outfit). So excited for you and the armchair too!

  2. Love that dress and sweater combo and those BOOTS!!! I just recently took my ginormous rubber bear case off my phone and have already dropped it, so I'll be looking for a new pretty case soon too!
