Days of Coach and Roses

Ever since right around 7th grade (2004, eleven years old) when some of my friends were lucky enough to be given Coach wallets and small purses, I have had a penchant for the brand. All the Coach bags I can remember back then were canvas with colored Cs on them, much like this wallet: Back then, a wallet like that or a small purse went for around $100, if memory serves. Every year for Chanukah, my dad’s parents used to send me $60 in a card, which was a huge amount of money to me back then. That combined withContinue reading

My Favorite Perfume: YSL Parisienne

Before I begin, I should clarify this is NOT a sponsored post. I mean, if YSL wanted me to blog for them, I’d be down, but I’m not that cool or nearly girly enough. This summer, I’m trying my very best to spend as little money as possible. I pay rent, some utilities, food and other bills, but I’m saving the rest to use when I move far away after I finish university. There are many things I want to buy: clothes, video games, a new purse and wallet, and I’ll be honest here, I’ll probably buy some of thoseContinue reading

There’s a bird’s nest on my head

I have some time to kill before my next class starts in just over an hour. Nope, I don’t get this lovely little break usually; I’m skipping Italian. :X I guess with the semester almost ending, I’m really losing my motivation. I have to keep pushing though… I still have two papers and two exams left in my “Evaluating Information” class. You would think with only a month left of school they would have planned that a little better, eh? I decided to put my hair up in a cool little mock bun with a slightly teased top and aContinue reading

Footwear for Kings

I need a new pair of slippers. My fuzzy pair (my only pair) is dying. 🙁 Or rather, has died. The fuzzy lining has been rubbed completely off the heel and toes, and the sole has separated so much from the bottom of the right slipper that I actually trip over it quite often. I know some people like to spend a hundred dollars on slippers and get a nice Ugg pair. I think they’re supposed to be really warm and comfortable, yes? But like, mine were too until they died, and I only paid $10 for mine. Also, mineContinue reading

Time

Whenever I get something new, I’m always really enthusiastic to use it… right away. New book? Can I read it now, please? New shirt? Let’s put it on. I do hate those “wash before wearing” instructions. The shirt my mom got me for my birthday finally came in the mail on Sunday, and since it was grey instead of some dark, heavily dyed color like red or black, I figured it would be okay to wear it without washing it first, especially since it didn’t say I had to. The point of washing a new piece of clothing before wearingContinue reading
