blanket scarves are the new it item for the fashion blogger and practically anyone who wears clothes. But they seriously are a great accessory for the winter. I've never been a fan of thin, lightweight scarves, so I'm really happy to have these thicker, wrapped blanket scarf versions, especially the ones from American Eagle Outfitters.
Yes, Please! by Amy Poehler - As you might remember from this post last week, I've been "reading" the Amy Poehler book, Yes, Please! I say "reading" because I'm actually listening to the audiobook version during my commute. I'm really happen with it! I've never listened to an audiobook before, but it actually makes perfect sense to do so with a celebrity's book because you're already so used to their voice and them "talking" to you on TV. Plus, it's simply a great book with a lot of insightful information about her life, and she keeps it funny too.
My New Quote Tattoo - Back in a Musings of a Muse post in May I mentioned that I planned on getting a rib cage tattoo (and lose weight, which I totally did, btw). Although that was the initial plan, I decided to get this particular tattoo--Though she be but little, she is fierce--placed on my arm for a couple reasons: one--I wasn't sure I could handle the rib cage pain; two--I have a few tattoos already, but no one knows that because they're all hidden, so I wanted one that would be visible.
Kate Spade Handbags - I've never been one of those crazy Black Friday shoppers. Maybe it's because I'm into fashion, so I don't need one day to tell me it's time to shop. I do it all the time. But I got an email from Kate Spade to a link for items that were 75% off. 75% off, I said! And that's when I purchased this gorgeous Kate Spade Charlotte Street Sloan bag. The original price was about $500 but I scored it for under $200.
Peonies - Back in November I was loving orange roses, which was probably because of all the orange that comes around during that month. But now, I'm really into peonies. Every time I try to pick up some at the store they are always out. So it seems like I'm not the only one loving peonies this December.
