{No. 163}

1.Scored this skirt on sale and with a discount coupon. It looks sooo much better in person and on then in this picture. I really love that it has pockets. FYI - it's a much brighter pink. Can't wait to pair it with a fitted v neck tee, a necklace that pops with color and some cute flats or even a wedge.

2.It's been a long while since I've really loved a ring...until this one. I love it.

3.One of the things I picked up a few weeks ago were these mini versions of my favorite latte bowls. I love them and they have been used and loved many times already. Every time I open my cupboard and see them they make me smile.

4.The color and lace of this skirt has put this on my birthday wish list. Asos is really making it hard not to buy stuff like crazy for me!

5.I don't care if people say birds are over and used too much now. I have always loved birds and will continue to love them. This shirt is no exception.

6.You know I love a good wedge!

7.A favorite Christmas gift I picked up at Soel Boutique is my gold initial necklace. I love sporting a simple "B" around my neck (B = Bret).

8.I've been using The Body Shop's body butter for years. During the dry Winter months it eliminates itching and cracking. In the Summer I like to use the Mango or the Coconut...the smell is subtle enough but still makes you think you're on an island somewhere.

NOW...on to what I really wanted to share.

Have you read this article? I loved it and had to share it! I found myself proclaiming outloud "Here! HERE!" and "YES!!" multiple times while reading it.

The whole thing is well written and thought provoking. Here are a few of the lines that I liked:

"Hotness is a consumable. A consumable that consumes as it is consumed but brings no warmth."

"It is ironic that 40 years of women’s liberation has succeeded only in turning women into a commodity. Something to be used up and thrown out."

"Most men prefer pretty over hot."

Please women everywhere...let's bring pretty back and not let it die!!

I bought that pink skirt too, but in grey- I know I'm boring.
I love those shoes.
I loved that article too- and always hated the "hot" Olivia Newton John.

sofie- Thanks! I will probably never post outfits that I wear. One, though I enjoy some fashion blogs that shows what the blogger wears each day (kendi everyday, the day book, etc.) I am not going to ask my husband AKA mr. shaky hand to take my picture for me and I'm not a fan of taking self portraits in a mirror. Also...not a fan of pictures of me, I prefer to be BEHIND the camera :)

Okay, I love the mini latte bowls and want to get some, but I just can't think of things I would use them for!?

What do you guys do with them?

I have one, and it's like my ring dish while I wash dishes and whatnot, but I want more...just need some ideas! ha.

I'd love some of those mini latte bowls...wish we had an anthropologie around here! I think they'd be perfect for snacks & such, and it would help my problems with portion control. ;)
