wish list : fringe/plaid/accessories. + why i love jenni


this week's wish list was inspired by the above boot that i just fell in love with at work. If i owned these pretty fringed MacAlisters, this is the outfit i would put together (it's all about the details right?)


from the top: twiggy plaid mini dress from BLEUBIRD VINTAGE, small shoulder bag in wooden brown from dot24, sunshine hairpin from pinnedup, gin label statement necklace from tawniwold's, typewriter mug from crafty folk (cos i'm always drinking coffee & love cute designed/vintage mugs).


wish list wednesday is inspired by danielle of dinosaur toes.


i know that starting my new job has really drained me when it comes to blogging and most of all i feel terrible being away from your blogs because i truly am missing what's going on in your lives! i promise to catch up once everything settles down. So don't give up on me yet!

today was especially long. So imagine my absolute joy when i got an unexpected package from my blog girlfriend Jenni!

i had won her awesome $20 gift card to Whole Foods giveaway but this was an added surprise. Jenni asked everyone who entered to pledge something they wanted to better themselves on. The giftcard was the giveaway win and yet this girl from Detroit who's already stolen my heart with her love of sports and hilarious blog posts surprised me with a box full of healthy goodies!


and check out my water bottle! everything is PERFECT to take to my new job. When i was a kid i loved fruit roll-ups so i can't wait to try the all natural fruit strips. Jenni, i can't believe you did this for me. THANK-YOU!!! your card was darling.

lovies, i have the best blog friends ever! if you haven't ventured to absent minded, you really ought to do yourself a favor!

(speaking of giveaways, my "i adore you all" giveaway ends tomorrow. last day to sign up! xo)

first off, those fruit strips are SOOOOO delicious! i get the grape ones at target and i'm in love!

second, i was just looking at shoes similar to that and i fell in love with then (and the plaid dress that the model was wearing)! we must have esp or something.

i hope things are going okay at your new job, and even though i know it's hard getting used to it, i'm sure it'll all be fine!
