Lipstick stains on rooftops

I know-I know, the same suede Topshop boots keep manifesting in various posts… but there was an inadequate amount space for stockpiling platforms while packing, so I blame the DVF luggage exclusively. Special thanks to the always-lovely Ediot for designing this amazing shirt. I absolutely adore it, and it’s become such an adaptable wardrobe piece that I’ve been virtually living in it!

And I couldn’t believe the news when I walked out to the mailbox, and there it was… a certificate awarding my manuscript, A Grove without Wings, Honorable Mentions in the 78th Annual Writer’s Digest Writing Competition. In the face of such a well-regarded competition, it’s a truly remarkable achievement for my writing career. Needless to say, I’ve far surpassed the initial “Oh my God!” and catapulted straight into a state of euphoria, so many thanks to everyone who sent such thoughtful twitter warm wishes!

(Hot Topic skirt, Eyeshadow cardigan, Ediot shirt, Oscar de la Renta socks, Forever 21 necklace, Topshop boots)


Ohh how cute you look, love the whole outfit!

Hope you're ok dear, long time since I last heard from you!

Ever since I saw that post of u wearing those alice + olivia madison biker boots, I've searched for them everywhere, and they're completely sold out. Some thieves are selling them for double d price on ebay but i think i'll pass on that. lol
Now I really wish I had picked them up when I ran into them at NYC. :-(

Less than a year ago, I became a homeowner of a beautiful, old Victorian built in 1870. A dream come true but recently a nightmare. This was a milestone in my life... and yet now something I'm asking anyone that can, to please help save it from repeated flooding and water damage. Unaware this was a past issue, I'm faced with devastating restoration costs in order to maintain the preservation and integrity of my home's internal and external structure. 
This past week, we received significant amounts of rainfall and the NWS issued flash flooding in this area. Because of untreated damage over the years before I lived here, rainfall continues to pour down/through parts of the roof and pipes as ground water surges in, flooding the inside of my home with 18-24 inches of water.
