The Choice Is Yours

Hello! I've had a semi-eventful couple of days. Yesterday I went to see Knocked Up for the second time because we couldn't get anyone to take us to SuperBad. It was amazing again. Today I worked all day and went to see Rich Meaty Taste + Taylor play their lovely music. It was fabulous and, as always, a good time.

So I guess you want the obsessions, eh? Well then.

Pretty Little Mistakes website
Remember choose your own destiny novels from elementary school? Well if you liked those as much as I did then this is the book for you. Heather McElhatton has created the ultimate choose your own destiny novel for adults. There are 150 endings and you can bet that I'll be re-reading this one until I get to each and every one of them. The book is quite realistic, with seemingly dramatic consequences that I suppose one might call reality. I will definitly be obsessed with this book for more than one day.

Cool Rings buy
My favorite accesory for fall is certainly an abundance of interesting and gorgeous rings. I'm not into spending a boatload of money on them because it's inevitable that I'll leave them or drop them somewhere never to be seen again, but stores like Forever 21 and Urban Outfitters really have great rings for pretty reasonable prices (especially Forever 21 in the price department). I love gold with black stones, but my absolute favorites are ones with intricate or interesting designs carved into them. I would also recommend wearing more than one [small] ring on one finger. It's my new favorite way to accesorize.

The Bloomsbury Loft website
I was in Powell yesterday with my mom just walking around and going into cute little stores (there are many of them there, I must say) but the Bloomsbury Loft definitly stood way way out. It reminds me exactly of Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette due to its mix of vintage and new finds. There are great fabrics, furniture, accessories, and all around knick knacks that I honestly think you wouldn't be able to find anywhere else. My personal favorite things were the abundance of vintage sewing patterns (I'll buy these and pretend I know how to sew my own clothes), board games and...stuff (vintage pool balls, clothes pins, postcards, etc). And I'm adding a one of a kind vintage chandelier to my Christmas Wishlist (yes, already).

I took her picture with me too!! It turned out fine, except my hair stylist cut it a bit long so most of the time I have it swept to one side :]
Great finds!
