Same bed but it feels just a little bit bigger now

If this blouse looks familiar, it's because everyone has it! The print is fun and whimsical, and best of all, not too Valentine-sy, if you know what I mean. It definitely makes for a great punch of colour in a dreary winter season.

See this styled on Khatu and Cee.

I don't ever wanna leave this town 'cause after all, this city never sleeps

I got some great news at work last week, so I decided to treat myself to a little something special...

With PN's firm 'no to a new bag' in mind (as he pointed out, I DID just purchase the Rockie..), I texted a contact and asked what he knew about the YSL Arty Oval ring, and he confirmed what I had suspected: Holt Renfrew will no longer be carrying the line. I had done some research prior to asking, and all signs were pointing towards the fact that this style of ring was being discontinued! 

Luckily for me, he knew of someone who happened to be thinking of selling the same ring.. in my size! It was fate.

I am wearing a size 6 here, and it fits my middle finger perfectly and is passable on my ring finger. I normally would've never gone for this gem colour (called fushia pink), but beggars can't be choosers. All online options were around $100 more expensive when calculating taxes and customs.. as if this ring wasn't expensive enough! I was lucky to get mine at a pre-loved price, and I couldn't be any happier.

Other beautiful options: ivory, moss, and coral.

P.S., apologies for the poor photo quality.. forgetting the camera cord at PN's means making do with my iPhone!

I just spent 45 minutes digging my car out from knee-height snow, only to come back to a fresh blanket of snow on my previously shoveled back porch. Anyone living in warmer climates who say they 'miss the snow so much' can go suck it.
