this & that


A much needed catch up session over coffee turned into a little afternoon siesta with cheese and wine. The heart wants what the heart wants, right?

I originally bought these Stella McCartney heels on The Real Real a few months back, with every intention of wearing them out for Christmas parties. They didn't make it out for Christmas though -- so I'm still waiting for the right occasion to debut them. In the meantime, I'm pretty smitten with how they look perched on my antique jewelry box. 

A few cheeky sweaters that I'll be bundling myself up in this week (hello Fashion Week and freezing temps!). I already took the leather sleeve beauty for a test drive last week here.

Our spread for the Super Bowl -- cheese plate and a few new, favorite beers. (I'll admit, I may have picked them out for their labels alone -- but they certainly did not disappoint!)

These gold-dipped mugs were a total impulse buy at Starbucks. I walked in wanting a grande iced skinny vanilla latte and walked out with about four of these in hand, which baffled my boyfriend when I met him outside. Oddly enough, he likes them way more than I thought he would, which gives me hope for our "no gold accents in the new apartment debate."

  8. LOL! "No gold accents in the new apartment debate"! That made me laugh so much. I bought one of those mugs for my bestie for Christmas, and they're so cute. I think buying four of them is completely justified.

  16. Those heels are pretty major! I'm a big fan of making decor choices in our home by just doing it, and waiting to see if my husband even notices. Half the time, he'll see that I changed something, but as long as it didn't involve throwing out the Playstation, he's fine with it. So keep things subtle, and I'm sure it'll be fine. :-)

  32. I love those mugs. Hopefully the man friend will change his mind on the color palette fro the new place. I'm trying to convince my husband of my decor vision for our living room. I feel your pain but hopefully he'll give in eventually. Or when the rug shows up at the house. :-)
