I think that Sam and Suzy's lovestory is akin to my own: ridiculous but endearing, punctuated by bouts of madness (insanity AND frustration). I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world. My husband and I like so many similar things but are so completely different that most of the time, our stock response to each other is: "I love you, but you don't know what you're talking about." It's so true.

I'm in a bit of a spot. eShakti is having a huge sale, some items up to 40% off, and I can't choose which of these lovelies to get.

They have some of the cutest fabrics, and I am simply in love with their retro-inspired pieces! Check out how I wore this lovely eShakti cape here and here.
Anyway, I can't decide whether or not I want a top or a dress. What do you think? Which item should I get?

Today is the last day of my 5-day weekend, and I'm feeling very refreshed. Not ready to go back to work at all tomorrow, but I had a great break. I got a whole lot of crafting done, and I even started a crafting blog where I share my stories about making stuff.
On Sunday, my bestie surprised me by driving down from Chicago, on a whim, to watch The Dark Knight Rises with my husband and me. It was a long, long movie, but well worth it. I wasn't a huge Christopher Nolan-Batman fan until this movie. I thought Batman Begins was boring, The Dark Knight was unnecessarily long (but with amazing performances), and TDKR was just superb. Don't get me wrong: there were flaws, but the movie was just sooooo good. Tom Hardy was a beast, and Anne Hathaway? She was inspiring. I'd say she's the best Catwoman of all the Catwomen, Eartha Kitt included.
If you follow me on twitter, you'll know that I got these awesome Express cowboy booties on super clearance a couple of weeks ago. Since then, I've been "practice-wearing" them when I ran errands or for quick trips to the library or the grocers. I've always wanted a pair of cowboy boots, but alas, I inherited my dad's thick calves, so finding a pair that isn't gigantic on my feet just so I can slip them up my legs deterred me from ever owning some.
Enter the bootie. Booties have definitely saved me from pulling my hair out over not being able to wear certain boot styles. And when you add Cowboy to Bootie? It's like my dream just manifested itself on earth.
Sometimes, I find it hard to believe that I don't drink as much caffeine as I used to. During my college years, I would guzzle pots and pots of coffee just to be able to keep up with studying. I ultimately bought an espresso maker that broke within a couple weeks. Yes, I may have overworked it.
But ever since I graduated, I haven't felt the need to imbibe. I don't even miss its flavor or aroma. Every once in a while, I'll indulge in a Spanish latte to treat myself to an early morning perk-me-up, but I have to be extremely exhausted or unmotivated to even consider getting one. Are you a caffeine fiend?
I still have a couple of outfits backlogged from before I got my haircut/color. So you'll be seeing my all-black hair for just a little bit more :) Hope you have a beautiful weekend!
