{budget/shopping update}
Right now I am unemployed (I prefer FUNemployed) so I'm not really shopping… some things did accidentally come home with me from the J.Crew sale, but I think I might have blacked out during the incident. Any ways, I didn't want to dedicate a whole post to this, so here's the summary:

In January I donated all my plain tank tops & replaced them with 3 white + 3 charcoal gray "Ryan" Everlane tanks, picked up this J.Crew sheath dress for $30 (worn here) & the J.Crew camo scarf for $20. And that amount of restraint literally took all the will power I had.

  2. Have a great weekend and enjoy your FUNemployed

  3. Yay, thanks for sharing these great links!!

  8. The Pinterest article is awesome...I need some major help with my followers on Pinterest. That is one of my main focuses this year...the traffic it drives to my blog is in my top 3 referring sites...I just don't know how to get there.
