Wed Nov 25th - Pre Turkey Day

Sometimes it just gets really difficult to remember what your spending limits should be. In my case, I realize that I do have spending limits, but seem to forget about them in a moment of retail lust. For example, lately I've been on a binge for accessories and just nice little ways to play up my many many dresses. This includes, but are not limited to: gloves, tights, jewelry, headbands, books, videogames, and amazing macaron snacks.


blackcurrant macarons and fresh black nail polish

green tea and strawberry macarons - my favourites!


With the Christmas season creeping up right after the glorious Tryptophan day tomorrow, I realize that expenses are just going to go apes with all the Christmas shopping happening.

But I'm sure some of you girls know what I mean when I say that there are just some things that are too good to pass up. This dress was a steal at H&M for only $15, and the gloves were an amazing ebay find for $8!



Dress - H&M ($15)
Sweater - Forever21 ($28)
Belt - H&M ($10)
Gloves - Ebay ($8)
Flats - Dean & Ozzy for Urban Outfitters ($10)

Oh I'm terrible too! I have no money until I get paid next, so I raided my saving just so I could buy a cute (CUTE!) pair of black victorian shoe boots and a cream lace top. I felt so guilty, but they came this morning and now i totally don't regret it lol.

Have a nice thanksgiving! I would hate if we had a holiday as big as thanksgiving so close to christmas, I can barely afford presents for one holiday let alone 2!
