Brevity Is the Word of the Day: Book Reviews

Love it so far, a bit cumbersome with all the names and separate accounts.

Slightly overrated, but provides excellent conversation material.

Love the idea, hated the projects. Uninspired and unimpressed unfortunately.

As a 26 year-old I probably should not admit the extent to which I loved it and that I am now obsessed.

I was doing so well

...posting so often! Oh well, I've got loads of thrifty finds to share I just need to haul out the camera, but between oral surgery, work, and homework lately I've little time to do so...not to mention the dearth of actual daylight to take good pics. Will update soon!!

Ebay Look #2 Inspiration: 3.1 Phillip Lim

I really love the look of a minimal, monochrome look with a big statement piece. Once again I looked to eBay for vintage finds. While the sweater is F21, it's at least budget-friendly, however this style and color sweater is basic enough that it could just as easily be an investment piece if one wanted to splurge.

So Fresh 'n So Clean

Happy 2009!

A year in which I will hope for the following:

.::the ability to let stuff go, stop dwelling on things already!::.

.::increased sewing/crocheting/knitting skills::.

.::motivation/desire to go to the gym again::.

.::a vet-free year::.

.::successful completion of an accounting class::.

.::(cliche disclaimer) to recognize the times where I should just be living in the moment::.

I hope for health and happiness for me and my loved ones, and for you and yours!
