St. Valentine Style

striped shirt and solid perfume

Been wearing these 3 things lately because Valentine’s Day, February, and greaser inspiration. I picked up this faux leather coat at Zara’s on a huge sale a few months ago. It’s extremely comfortable + I sized up & up so I can wear it over thick sweaters.

Catbird’s Ghost Rose solid perfume is such a true rose smell. You can smell the sort of “green” parts of a rose in this perfume. It’s solid so it’s not very strong but it lingers on the skin. Good for applying to pressure points, you know, so when you start overheating it’ll actually smell nice ha!

I’ve noticed as I’m feeling better and better (from back pain) I didn’t really care about what I wore. Not to say I was sloppy. My closet was still whittled down and matched up enough that I looked fine. But I just didn’t care about shopping, or wearing what I “really” wanted when going out. Mostly because I didn’t go out unless I needed. I’m already starting to forget what that was like; being unable to enjoy going out. But now I have the luxury of putting thought to it. However I keep see-sawing between jeans and skirts. I’ll go on this kick of wanting only denim then suddenly I hate them and switch to skirts with fleece tights. But all-in-all I’m not really shopping much lately. I’m happy with everything I have and would only be interested in spring things now… and warmer weather to go along with it.

Though I did buy this wool coat from Madewell earlier in the month. Finally trading in my previous one of 8 years that I got from Forever 21. I had mended it so so so many times.

Hyacinth Bulbs and New Jewelry

hyacinth bulbs

I finally pulled out my Olympus Pen for the first time in 2015. I haven’t used it much lately but I missed its quality when blogging back in December.

They sell these hyacinth bulbs at supermarkets right now. They’re so easy to take care of and last longer than cut flowers. I think once they’re done I’ll use the glass vases for either new bulbs or try to get an avocado seed to sprout since they’ll survive in just water.

Below are photos of a few Christmas gifts I received. They’re things from catbird.

I realize all the free time I used to have, or better, the time I used to use for blogging has shifted dramatically this year. Usually I’d blog after work, but now that’s when I cook. Or I’d blog after dinner, but now there’s usually a hockey game on that I want to catch instead.

I just realized this blog is still in xmas colors! I’ll need to find time for that too :’)
