A Pinning + Shopping Story


So let's begin the story here. Because she's pretty and is dressed enviably. I saw this picture and quickly put myself to the task of hunting down a similar belt.


I found this brass belt. Bingo.


UPDATE: Thanks to Gaby I found this brass belt on ASOS and bought it. I mean for $26 might as well try...



Then I saw this picture.


And immediately went out and bought more lipstick. Because you can never have too many bright ass lipsticks. I guess some would disagree. But not me. My latest lipstick obsession? Urban Decay's Super - Saturated Hi Gloss Lip Colors. OMG. They are bomb. My two new colors are Punch Drunk and Crush. The girl who rang me up said she can't get enough of Crush, and also loves FBomb. The name is enough for me. I might order it too.

Upon seeing this next picture I decided to start on one of my resolutions, and invited friends over for meatball subs over the weekend. I used this recipe for the sauce and this alfredo recipe (to pour over the top of course). I totally just used frozen meatballs because I don't have that much time on my hands. It was delicious and a grand time was had by all. 


Later I spied this rug and immediately clicked over to eSaleRugs and made a purchase taking advantage of their 50% off sale. Unfortunately this rug was already sold.


  But I snagged this one :)


Lastly, I saw this embroidered closet by Allison Watkins and am smitten smitten. I now dream of her making one for me.


Whew. I'm exhausted :) Happy Monday, Everyone.

Did you order the brass belt? How did it work out? I'm still on the fence about ordering...

Hey Biz I got the Asos one and it's just so so. Cheap enough that I'm keeping though.
