I’ve been in a dreamy state lately… as usual, lots of stuff to stress out about. But I decided, “screw it! i’m gonna be ZEN for a change!” and have just tried my best not to let things bother me.
It worked… for awhile.
Now, I just want to try some retail therapy!
There are just a few little things I want. Please… just humor me. ;)
Grand Holiday Dress - Anthropologie
Light On Water Halter - Anthropologie
Scoop Back Chair in Yellow - West Elm (my bedroom is like, all gray; i want this yellow chair so it just POPS!)
Tess Skimmer by Frye - Zappos
Phew. There. I seriously doubt I’ll buy any of it…. except…. well, maybe the chair. But window shopping is always helpful!
So, I’m back in business.
Clearly you know you’re running on empty when you have to take time off from your computer.
I’m so in the wrong business! Retail management is not for me… I’ve worn myself down between all the long hours and the stress and the being sick and not giving myself enough time to get over it… and so on. SO not a big deal, but it’s high time I just take it down a notch, so I don’t get the darn flu next time.
This is a website I started watching and joined not long ago— Trend Hunter. It’s just interesting, it depends on 20,000+ members to feed it new trends, things that are captivating people’s interests… maybe you already know this! I am always the last to catch on. :P
So, I saw this on the front page just a bit ago and it grabbed my attention, because anyone who knows me can tell ya, my number one dream would be to have pink hair. I think it comes from watching ‘Jem’ as a kid.
So. Cool. Love it!
Do I ever leave the store? Seriously, I feel like I wake up and go to sleep in the furnishings department.
One bonus is that inventory is over. We “hired” outside help… by “hired” I mean posted an ad on Craigslist and had a slew of college kids show up for a few hours of work at a measly hourly rate. But it got it done and I didn’t have to stay at the store later than midnight more than once.
So, I’m kicking back on my day off…. idly playing on websites, half-heartedly planning on baking cookies or going to Ikea.
Am I the last person to know about this site, Sea of Shoes? It’s this teenage-looking girl posting photos of shoes. She’s a little fashion maven. It’s simultaneously envy-inspiring and just gross. Some of that stuff costs more than a month’s rent in my apartment.
I could neeeever wear those. Louboutins, for crying out loud! Do they really exist outside of the world in ‘Sex in the City’? People wear them?
All the same, it’s a fun blog. I do like looking at fashion photos even if I get jealous or annoyed by the pricetag that accompanies materialism…
See? Fun to look at. Mostly because the pants are LOL worthy, but hey, fun.
