Love, Actually

November 28, 2011

Its Monday, and the first day back to work after the Thanksgiving holiday.  I don’t know why, but I always have the hardest time transitioning from being home and visiting my family to coming back to a quiet apartment and a room of my own.  Call me crazy but I love the chaos that is being home.  Maybe I like lounging on the couch with three other people and our Cavalier, Henry.  Or watching a Disney Channel Original Movie in my mamas bed with Molly and our 11 year old sister.  Sharing a bedroom and bathroom – no problem there…

Its Monday, and the first day back to work after the Thanksgiving holiday.  I don’t know why, but I always have the hardest time transitioning from being home and visiting my family to coming back to a quiet apartment and a room of my own.  Call me crazy but I love the chaos that is being home.  Maybe I like lounging on the couch with three other people and our Cavalier, Henry.  Or watching a Disney Channel Original Movie in my mamas bed with Molly and our 11 year old sister.  Sharing a bedroom and bathroom – no problem there either.  Sometimes the craziness that comes with being home is a great change and one that I love to welcome into my world.   

While we were home we watched some of the best holiday movies.  Including The Family Stone, Home Alone, and Love Actually.  No matter how many times I hear the above quote in Love Actually, I fall in love with it all over again.  So, on this transitional Monday morning, I’m counting down the days til the Christmas holiday at home (too soon?) and loving this totally true Love Actually quote.

Guest Bloggin’ – Bellissimo

November 28, 2011

For me, the fall and winter seasons always bring on a huge surge of lust for gorgeous clothes.  When Megan of Bellissimo blog asked me to do a guest post for her I knew exactly what I wanted to gush about… Right now I can’t get enough of Leifsdottir – the higher-end clothing line created by parent company Urban Outfitters and sold only through Anthropologie.  There are so (so, so, so) many things I am obsessed with by the label and I think that each piece has a little something extra that makes it stand out from other things in…

There are so (so, so, so) many things I am obsessed with by the label and I think that each piece has a little something extra that makes it stand out from other things in my closet.  Hope you hop over to Megan’s blog to read my rant and check out some of the things I don’t think I can live without from Leifsdottir!

If you haven’t already heard, Rachel Bilson is launching ShoeMint – similar to JewelMint and StyleMint but this time with shoes.  Doesn’t get much better than that.  Bilson is one of my most favorite stars to follow as far as fashion goes.  She always looks amazing so I have no doubt that her shoes will be equally as wonderful as she is.  The site will officially launch this Friday, but all this week they are offering rewards for people who sign up.  Make sure you sign up here.

Molly, the luckiest sister/person in the world, just found out today that she won FREE shoes from ShoeMint for an entire year.  Yes, year.  She gets in town to Kansas City tonight and I am going to rub her tummy like a buddha tonight for some good luck in hopes that I can win too:)  There’s gotta be some type of luck running through our veins right?!  If she was able to win, that means just about anyone can win, so its totes worth it to sign up!

In other news, Happy Happy Thanksgiving Eve to all of our precious readers.  Have a perfectly perfect Turkey day stuffing your faces with friends and family.  Might just be the greatest day of the year in our books:)
