So basically I went crazy in terms of shopping this month. Like, actually crazy. I think I hit up the outlet mall 3 of the last 4 weekends and then did some online shopping and picked up some other random things in the city as per usual. Which in turn means I’ll be going on a SPENDING FREEEEEEZE come June 1st. Seriously. No spending money on any clothes. 30 days of wearing what I already own. I’m not too worried, just really sad. But I know I’ll thank myself come July 1 and I still have money in the bank. I’ll keep you updated on the situation as it unfolds.
In other news, I want to introduce you to an awesome blog that I came across two or three months ago that I absolutely love. It’s called Underground New York City Library. I mean what a genius idea. Photos upon photos of people reading on the subway in NYC. Absolutely fascinating getting to see what sort of people are reading what sort of book. A woman named Ourit Ben-Haim started the blog and provides links to purchase or borrow the books in the photos. I love it. Unfortunately she hasn’t updated in about a month, but definitely take a few minutes to peruse through the archives. Here are a few of my favorites. (shots, not books, as I haven’t read ’em…yet)
I think someone should most definitely start this in Chicago. I also need to find some new reading material for the summer, any suggestions are more than welcome! I miss my kindle, totally time for that bad boy to come out of hiding.
PS – Go blackhawks! Eight more games ’til we’re drankin’ champagne out of the cup…again.
yesterday at the office a co-worker told me that I have the most colorful wardrobe of anyone that he knows. i could see that. I love brights and neons and color-blocking. but as we all know, monday was memorial day and you know what that means: summer! I’d just go ahead and say white but I don’t follow that rule. I basically wear white whenever I want basically because I think I can do whatever I want, and I guess technically I can, so it all works out. Anyway, if we’re following the fashion laws of yore, we’d all be jumping on the white bandwagon right about now. So I’ve rounded up some of my favorite white pieces to sport for the season.
just make sure that you make best friends with a brand new tide to-go pen!
studio apartment? NOT. literally as far from a studio you can get.
speaking of trainwrecks, this cannot be real. if you have enough money to launch a vodka line, maybe don’t hire what looks to be an 11 year old to do your package design?
let’s end this on a positive note though. summer’s basically here, so beach waves are essential and we don’t all live near the ocean, worry not.
