the past two weeks have been CRAZY.  its almost as if bailey knew that my life was going to take off and that i would be ok without him and he chose the perfect moment to move on.

my BIGGEST news is that i am moving!  i am not going very far just 5 doors down into a new apt and moving in with this guy:  (facebook)

which brings me to my

first obsession: MBP my new roommate, well house mate i guess.  we are bff’s and that is neat.

obsession 2: KOMBUCHAlike most things i refused to try this at first.  i looked into it a few years ago because bethany frankel was drinking it on her show.  then i saw the words fermented tea and i thought i would check myself.  i am currently in love with mystic mango and have tried cosmic cranberry which is a bit more vinegary and special than the mango.

OBSESSION 3: new sunglasses.  i have had the same sunglasses for about 2 years.  i left them at school on friday and had to drive ALL THE WAY TO SOUTH CAROLINA without them.  now i have to convince g-ma to take me to the mall (45 min away) to get some new ones.
thinking about getting these:seeing as i have to go to sunglass hut because the nearest nordstroms is back in charlotte and ill be DAMNED if i have to drive anywhere after the 9 hours it took me to get down here.

obsession 4: STRIPES

and yes i may just own all of these items (including the zebra) in the next few days

when i transferred to catholic school in third grade (because i could not read or spell from my public education, the same education i now give to unsuspecting children) i had to get penny loafers.  it was penny loafers, saddle shoes or buster browns.

FLASHBACK: i was a FAT child.  you can ask AJH, Lisa or any boy i dated in highschool that was ambused with the photos when they came to the house.  i was very large.  thats ok.  i’ve recovered with therapy.  like 100 lbs in 4th grade large.  anyway this only make my normally fat feet ever wider.  i really wanted the pink saddle shooes, they did not make them in EEE so i had to get black and white.  when i wanted penny loafers the only ones in my size where with a heal.  inappropriate for third grade so we settled on buster browns.

well now i want penny loafers, the ones without the heal.

any of these (all available from zappos) will do!  (HINT HINT BIRTHDAY HINT)

Patricia Green: Katherine

Cole Haan: Air Tali Keeper Moc

Cole Haan: Air Penny Tantivy Driver I would buy these right now if they had them in a darker color!

Lacoste: Concours

Frye: Otis Penny

a little trip over to the cole haan website brought me to this:

Air Penny Tantivy Driver

I MUST OWN THESE SHOES!  they are perfect for my birthday.  shiny and comfy, AND ON SALE.

Cole Haan: Air Penny Tantivy

all my will power is going into not buying these!

Today I am feeling great! We will call it the post hangover self loathing induced sudden onset anorexia.

Aka I was unable to really consume anything or do anything yesterday. Causing some serious dehydration. Thus I am looking nice and thin today.

Downside or UPSIDE looking at breakfast this morning made me want to crawl back into bed.

No picture but I have on my super cute pink j.crew skirt, black slightly sequined tank from target (it was $6!) and white sweater.

To make today EVEN better I was 15 minutes late, forgot my work and am still at school.

have you been wondering how to get your hands on an exclusive cole b. outerwear scarf?


for valentines day i am teaming up with nicole of cole b. outerwear to give away a red scarf and a caroline coffee hug backed in red!

here is the scarf you will get!and the lovely nicole, of cole b. outerwear modeling it!

here i am wearing my blue cole b. outerwear scarf:
i also have an ivory one that i was going to wear to school today but since it is a SNOW day!  i am still in my pjs and makeup free so no picture YET!

who is nicole of nicole b. outerwear?  she is the mother of a adorable 7 month old, a pr genius and an expert crocheter (is that how you spell it?) .  she was also one of the inspirations for me to start my own etsy shop!  she is the daughter of lil deb cakes, and a true friend to me.  she had to recently move with her husband from charlotte to louisville, ky.  to say it was a big change for her would be an understatement.  but she put on her big girl panties and has made the best of it!  she even sells her scarves at a local shop and has become a local gem!

this is your chance to get a highly coveted scarf for FREE!

while nicole does not have her own etsy shop you can e-mail her at colebouterwear(at)gmail[dot]com.  she has an amazing color palette.

hopefully i can get some more pictures of the exact scarf we are giving away but due to my recent loss, it had been hard.
