Man Eater

This came in the mail today. There better be a fireman on call because DAYUM this dress is HOT. As soon as I zipped it up Nelly Furtado's Maneater popped into my head, the fit is just right (just a tiny bit of gaping in the back if I pull my shoulders back) I can't wait to trot this number out. It's also totally work appropriate, the right length and everything. I just need to wear a cardigan so as not to cause heart attacks.


Cheap Thrills

I'm obsessed with lush, there I said it. I blame Nechama, she led me down this path of smelling good. My small splurge of the week other than my usual moisturizer and massage bar purchases was a solid perfume by the name of Vanillary, from the new Vanilla line lush just launched. From the lush website;
Pleasure in a little pot. A tiny tin of Vanillary is sustaining us through the dark dull days and it’ll be even better in the long, light days too. It’s not just vanilla, although the scent of cake shops and trays of toffee do spring to mind as soon as you smell it. There is a strand of sensual jasmine woven into the sweeter notes. Carry it around for an instant uplift.

It's like a warm vanilla blanket, it's definitely helped brighten my days.



The problem with watching 3.75 seasons of How I met your Mother in two weeks is that, while hilariously funny and my NPH crush has grown, it makes me look at my wardrobe with sad puppy dog eyes. TV shows set up an unrealistic expectation that we will have something new and interesting to wear everyday. TV shows also make me think I should wear dresses everyday, and oh how much better and more fun my life would be with a plethora of fun cute summer dresses in my closet! Which leads me to do stupid things like order this from shopbop;

On the plus side it's totally work appropriate (with a cardigan or blazer) but I did fall off my 'no new items in the closet until you graduate' plan.



So even though I managed not to see any of the Oscar nominated movies I have been to a couple in the last few days. On Sunday, it was the Hilarious I love you, Man with Jason Segal and Paul Rudd. Possibly one of the best comedies I've seen in a while, it wasn't ground breaking, it wasn't anything we hadn't seen before but it was funny. The only thing that kind of threw me off was the entire time Jason Segal was on screen I kept going MARSHAAAAAAAAAAAALL <3 Because well, Marshall from HIMYM is the best.
Last night I went and saw Sunshine Cleaning. Now I love Amy Adams and Emily Blunt and it looked funny from the previews. It was not so funny and much much darker. It had it's moments, but I felt like it had no closure, and was kind of depressing the whole way through. Not the uplifting I thought it would be. Still good, but go when you don't need a comedy boost.
