pretties.

Many changes have happened in the past 4-6 months. I lost my job, found a new part time one, and I’m working on going back to school and getting this whole life thing figured out.

The best thing out of the whole ordeal is that I’m no longer stressed or annoyed at work, and my part time job is at kate spade. I love all the girls I work with, and it’s so colorful and warm, and talk about all the pretties!!

kate spade has such wonderful imagery and design. It’s like the first time a brand ‘gets me’. Love of books and color, function, and whimsy. My favorite thing to do at work when there is some downtime, is to look at past collections. Check out these pretty ads from the past.

Sunday Afternoon Cuteness

Wow! What a productive Sunday so far. Every Sunday, Em and I attend free yoga at the Princeton Lulumon (purveyor of pricey but GOOD workout gear). We get our power vinyasa on for an hour, and this Sunday we decided to breakfast at Small World Coffee (steel-cut oats with bananas) and then catch the Central NJ Slow Food Winter Farmer’s Market over at Forrestral Village. Stocked up on some oyster and shiitake mushrooms, almond and mushroom pate, eggplant spread, salsa fresca, and sampled some delicious BBQ sauce from Funni Bonz. After that, there was a quick pit stop at Target for things (I broke my rule and bought bedsheets. My bad), spied on the awesome promotional stuff for Liberty of London for Target.

Did I tell you that we got some pinwheels too? Our buddy Meghan (aforementioned in the dress post), works for Kate Spade, and their Princeton store is covered with cute pinwheels in yellow, green, pink, and blue in time for spring. Adorable! Wish I had gotten a picture of it, but unfortunately did not. The best part? You can take them! I think people looked at us a little crazy, but I ended up taking two since the first one (had a speck of dirt on it) did not go back so easily into its holder, and in fear of setting off a store alarm, I ‘got one for Nick’.

Anyway, the rest of the day is filled with studying, laundry, and a trip to the movies later this evening. In between turing the pages of my GRE book, I will be catching up with My Milk Toof– the cutest thing on the Internet, possibly thus far. It is a series of adorable pictures featuring a long lost baby tooth (and his friend) and the adventures they get into. Check them out and be prepared to squeal from the cuteness.

mulling things over.

I didn’t make any legit New Year’s resolutions. Why? Most often I don’t follow through and in order to make me feel better about myself I make stupid ones like ‘Throw out more magazines’, so yeah. So my ‘resolutions’ include quitting smoking (I only smoke like 3-4 a week now that the stress of holidays is over), eating less meat/eating more vegetables, practice more yoga, save money, be less wasteful, etc.

And most importantly be grateful. For everything I have and who I have in my life. I think I tend to be a little materialistic and take for granted things I have. The tragedy in Haiti has made it to apparent how quick and easy life can change. My heart is breaking for all the families who are trying to contact their loved ones lost and whose whereabouts are unknown, the babies we’ve seen on the television with broken legs and wounds, and for all the people of Haiti. I’ve donated what I can, but it always seems like it isn’t enough. I just hope that aid will come to those who need it.
