How Was Your Weekend?

January 21st, 2013 | Posted in Beauty, Fashion, Home, Personal by Meli

Mine was eventful. And not in the way I would have liked. My hubby went away on a friends trip to New York City (I hate how studying continually gets in the way of me enjoying life – ugh), and I had big plans. Mainly involving studying and getting some items checked off my to-do list. Unfortunately, the universe had another idea.

I ended up fracturing my foot after playing with my dog (you notice that there are never good reasons for injuries?) late night Friday, and had to be put in a cast and crutches, which are not coming off for another month. It was very exciting. But since I always try to focus on the positive, here were some highlights;

We got a new chevron rug for our living room from Urban Outfitters on mega sale! I love it so much & it gives our space some new personality. Gwen also approves of it and told me she can’t wait to pee on it in the very near future (her new favorite past time). // The series finale of Fringe was amazing, was it not? I’m glad I watched it alone because I was sobbing like a fool. Favorite moment? You are my favorite thing. Heart strings = pulled.

My big, swollen foot unable to fit in my flippy floppies and killing my Miami Winter outfit. // Colorblocking manicure with Essie’s Cute As A Button & Pansy to brighten my limpy status.

Little things make me happier than brand new agendas. I’m still a dinosaur & don’t believe in using my phone to manage my schedule – I think it’s due to my paper goods obsession. // Speaking of paper goods, I found a great website where you can get really adorable drawer liners. I ordered a sample for our kitchen drawers & I absolutely love it!

My busted up foot in its cast. Basically what my life will look like for the next month.
2013, be better please.

Lovable Friday!

1. Smashing Pumpkins Announce Intimate US tour

I honestly cannot control my insane happiness over the news that my favorite band in the world, The Smashing Pumpkins, will be playing an extremely intimate series of shows during the month of July. As if that wasn’t cool enough, one of their few stops is in Fort Lauderdale, specifically, at Revolution Live (one of my favorite venues)! Are you kidding me???? I’m pretty sure I just fangirled myself. Mr. Corgan is also hinting that special VIP access may be granted to some special fans including a private soundcheck! Unfortunately, the band has not released ticket prices or onsale dates, which has me extremely anxious. Must.have.tickets.now.
