Contemplate it

Pantone announces 2 color forecasts for 2016: Rose Quartz and Serenity. I'm not convinced these pastel hues are flattering for me. 
Not quite right:

Wrist wares

Boho holiday win:

$9.86 Czech crystals and San Sitara / sandstone gemstone mystic bead bracelet from Turkey. This is my first piece of mail sent to the new address.

I feel like my life hasn't quite gotten back on schedule after coming home from visiting Tibetan villages. Traveling in my thirties takes more of a toll than traveling in my twenties.

Furry friend #Review

Our apartment complex is overrun with tame feline house pets. It didn't take long for the animal lover in me to take to becoming a cat person!
Meghan of SillyKittyCreations Etsy store sent along this $15CAD charming blue and green burp cloths trio.
Each 100% cotton flannelette front is a different yet cohesively coordinating pattern: playful kitties, alphabet fonts and gingham. 
For the back, minky textile is soft with textured raised polka dots which provide a bit of grip to stay on your shoulder and is completely comfortable. 

If sweet pastels aren't your cup of tea, this Sci-Fi burp cloth pack is a whole lot of wacky fun for a little boy!

Okay, here's the legal part where I have to say that while I was given this product compliments of the sponsor, my opinions are unbiased and free of coercion.
