too much?

this duvet? thoughts? I love the print....would I hate it in 6 months? too graphic? too cliche with the currently-ubiqitous peacock design? all the rage now...will it look neat and vintage someday or just cheesy? am I overthinking this? help, blogosphere!

Have you seen these? They're the newest craze amongst all the girls at my school. Rubber bands shaped like animals that conveniently stretch into bracelets. Nothing will ever be better than the slap bracelet.

denise huxtable.

Oh, Etsy. For you to take one of my favorite shows, although not my favorite character from the show (buuuud, anyone) and let me virtually and vicariously dress like her....

-this weekend the weather finally hit the 90s, with humidity - St. Louis summer is here
-supposed to be high 80s all week - air conditioner is officially on
-thank goodness I'm leaving for Michigan in 2 weeks
-not in the blogging mood lately....wait til summer
-last full week of school; I'm assessing all week. Next week = field day, half days and movies
-I desperately need to grocery shop; I ate out 3 nights this weekend
-this weekend I watched Valentine's Day and September Issue. Valentine's Day was fairly terrible, but I ended up getting it for free on demand because Charter was being weird. September Issue was really interesting.
-I've been eating mini Snickers in bed, after I've brushed my teeth. Shameful!

by this. 50 bucks. not entirely unreasonable, but still not justifiable for me.
if this had a shorter heel, it would be on the tempted list as well

baby bruddah

Happy Birthday, little stinker. Thanks for letting me vicariously relive high school through you, so that I don't feel so old.

one sweet find

One of my fave bloggers, Jackie at SPPN, has started an online shop with fun flea flea/market/thrift/antique store finds...Love the selection. I've been in quite the mood to antique/flea/garage sale lately, but just haven't had the time on weekends.

I could spend 30 bucks on good quality beads and whatnot and attempt to make something like this...
or I could just shell out 28 bucks for the anthro version. However I was considering investing in a real, epic turquoise necklace this summer....hmm.

I would like to make these homemade take 5 bars.....
