A little bit of this, a little bit of that

I’ve got some randomness coming your way today, since nothing is really going on.

Enter the Crafty Swap!!! I have a bunch of great bloggers signed up, and we’d love to have more!!  The deadline to sign up is extended until tomorrow, Sept 12.

Crafty Swap 09

– My 2 year Blogoversary is on Sunday!!  Stay tuned for an awesome giveaway, featuring a bunch of lovely Etsy shops!

– Dave’s school gave him an iPod Touch because they felt that all the music teachers needed one.  It’s supposed to be used as an educational tool.  Umm, can I become a teacher now? 

– I leave for Chicago Tuesday night, and am there for over a week.  Sheesh.  I am definitely going to set out and explore this time, since last year when I went, I barely got to see the city! 

– Revlon contacted me and sent me a bunch of new fake nails that they came out with.  I’m supposed to try them out, but I don’t know if I could seriously walk around wearing fake nails.  We’ll see.  Maybe I’ll get bored this weekend.  ๐Ÿ™‚

– I’m kind of obsessed with the (500) Days of Summer soundtrack.  Especially “Us” by Regina Spektor (who I went to sleepaway camp with!) and “You Make My Dreams” by Hall and Oates hahaha.  (Gotta love that J.G.L. dance number!)

– It’s feeling like Fall here in NY, so that must mean it’s Scarf Swap Time!  I did one last year and got a great purple scarf that I LOVE.  Katie at Loves of Life is hosting one now, and you still have time to sign up!

Join the fun

– I got a CUTE pair of Christian Siriano flats from Payless today! A bunch of designers are doing limited edition lines for them, and these were less than $25!

– I’m also hopping over to Ann Taylor Loft after work to hopefully get this dress and these shoes (in black). They’d be perfect for my events, and to be honest, I haven’t really purchased new “work” clothes since my last job, because my every day work environment is so casual.

– I’m getting my hair cut tomorrow, which I desperately need. I’m one of those people that isn’t good about my hair, and only get it cut like 2-3 times a year. BAD. My hairdresser will yell at me and then chop off a few more inches than I’d like, to get rid of the dead ends.

– Since the weather is so crappy today I’m wearing my rainboots, but the sole insert thing keeps riding up and making my foot uncomfortable. Gotta remind myself to glue those things in when I get home.

Have a good weekend!!


  1. yayyy hair cut! Isn't it fabulous going to Chicago maybe meet lots of bloggy friends and sight seeing with fresh hair cut? I would be if I were you ๐Ÿ™‚

    And free ipod touch, totally made me wanna be a music teacher. But then I remember i have no patience. ๐Ÿ˜›

  2. oooo you went to camp with her… i love her!!! Im going to check out that soundtrack… good weekend gorgeous!! xxooo

  3. The Northerner says

    I got the fake nails in the mail too. I put on one last night and freaked out because the glue was allll over my thumb and it felt so weird. You could use the glue from the nail kits to fix your sole…it is that strong.

    I never get my hair cut either and then hate when I have to cut off way more than I want! Why do we do this???

    Enjoy your trip!

  4. Cute shoes – I was just looking at those flats the other day. Let us know if they're comfy and thanks for the link about the scarf giveaway – I'm definitely participating!

  5. ooh yay for chicago! have so much fun, that'll be a blast. and an ipod touch? yes sign me up for teacherness too please, haha.

  6. I love those shoes!

    Oh, and I was in Loft tonight after work. I saw that dress! It's adorable, but I don't think I could pull it off, booo!

  7. Sign me up for being a teacher and getting free electonic equipment. Wait. I am a teacher. And we NEVER get anything like that! Cute shoes, the picture makes me want them a lot!

  8. We went to camp with Regina Spektor?
