People how can you not love this creepy face? I’m pretending here that it’s actually warm enough to be outside without a jacket… yea I’m warm… sure. This top my mom bought for herself from J. Jill. When I saw her wearing it I made her get it for me asap (yes if we wanted to wear it on the same day we’d be twins). I love the color and had been searching for the perfect velvet item, I found it in J. Jill. It’s amazing what you can find in the strangest places. I also have another black velvet shirt from them as well, it was a velvet gold mine. 

It’s funny that I have so many shoes, yet I wear the same four or five on repeat… lol. Oh well, they make nice apartment decorations!

My Free People necklace was a gift from my mom for Christmas (or my birthday?) several years ago. I love it! It’s such a unique piece, and spices up any outfit. Mom, if you’re reading this, the necklace was definitely a successful purchase bravo, I’m proud of you. 

I made balsamic asparagus with roasted cherry tomatoes and goat cheese. To sum it up in one word, yum. I’m obsessed with goat cheese it makes every and anything good. 

On a different note, when I was little I used to LOVE old movies. I just couldn’t get enough. Everyone thought I was bizarre, instead of watching Sponge Bob I was watching Some Like it Hot. There’s something about the acting back then, and the sets, that’s just so classic and beautiful. Elizabeth Taylor was a wonderful actress, I was saddened today when I read she passed away. When I talked to my dad about it he said, “She lived a good life”. I think that’s definitely the best way to think about it.
