Things I'm Loving.

  1. This post on buzz feed of 21 Pictures That Will Restore Your Faith in Humanity. My brother posted this on Facebook and it truly is worth five minutes of your time. I wish acts of kindness made the news as often as acts of inhumanity. Warms my little heart.  :) 
  2. Looking for new spaces! I'm simultaneously looking for both office space and possibly a new apartment. Yes, moving is a beatdown and moving both areas of my life sounds like a massive amount of upheaval, but I LOVE looking at real estate of any kind. Plotting out new furniture layouts, shopping for quirky accessories... I could do it aaaall day long!
  3. The fact that I have a date (with myself) tomorrow at Bliss right after work and then a date with The Boy to see Roger Creager afterwards. Which means there is the added little bonus of being able to dig my cowboy boots out of the back of the closet. Not too shabby of a Friday night! 
  4. Speaking of footwear- I just bought these from Target and I love them so much that I find myself trying to plan all my outfits around them. They are TALL, but the platform makes them surprisingly comfy. I ordered them online and then saw the exact same shoes somewhere else online for twice as much. Apparently they are a knockoff, but I'll take my cheapie target shoes any day. 
  5. Still on a Fun. kick lately. We Are Young is still on my workout playlist, but the radio has almost killed that one for me.  Here is my new favorite:

Surprised House Sitter

Aren't parents the greatest? I am dog sitting for my parents while they are on vacation and I when I first got to the house I found this "thank you" goody bag from Sephora waiting for me:

As I've talked about here before, my newest hair obsession is hot rollers. Old lady-ish? You betcha. Totally effective for this lazy girl? Absolutely!

I've been using the cheapy $20 Conair set that I bought at the grocery store for the last six months because I wanted to try it out first to see if I liked it before investing in anything professional-grade. Seeing as how my flat iron hasn't seen the light of day since winter, I've been tossing around the idea of upgrading them for a little while.

Well, toss no more- The Dot upgraded for me!  I tried them out for the first time and I love them!
Big, loose, shiny curls!

She got the T3 rollers that you can find at Nordstrom, Sephora, or pretty much anywhere online. The only issue for me is that there are only 8 rollers. Maybe that would work for some gals but that's a joke for my head of hair. Luckily, I logged onto my old faithful, Amazon, and they sell additional T3 rollers in sets of two.

My favorite part is that they come in this soft sided pouch thingie as opposed to a hard plastic case. This makes them so much easier to pack. I threw them in my gym bag this morning and it probably took up half the space as the old ones. Love it!

I always tease my parents that I'd be happy to house sit for them, but that they just shouldn't expect to come back to as much wine as they had when they left.  So I had to laugh because my first thought regarding the "thank you for house sitting" gift was that it was an attempt to guilt me into staying out of the wine room while they were gone.

Thanks mom and dad!  I'll happily dog sit for you guys ANYTIME!!
