life lately mainly via food photos

Life lately has consisted of lots of food, as you are about to see.
It is not that I eat sushi as much as it appears, rather that this is a compilation of sushi trips over the last month or so, with some pizza, pine tree ice cream from Bent Spoon in Princeton, and fiancé-made breakfast.

Also while Christmas shopping I came across this HILARIOUS iPhone case & needed to share:

& my new car is back from the doctors after a certain iPhone charger didn't work 
{which was the whole reason I got a 2012 and not a 2013...}
his & hers
reunited & it feels so good!

faves for friday: gifted

The holidays mean lots of traveling for us,
& lots of traveling means lots of trees!

& decorations!

I must have been a good girl this year,
lots of fab clothing {even wearing some already!}

What I Wore: glasses- c/o firmoo, cardigan- TJMaxx, top- Forever 21 {gift from mother in law}, glitter belt- JCrew {gift from mom}, shoes- JCrew {gift from mother in law}

funny story about these shoes, I now own two pairs.

I had to special order them from the AC JCrew Outlet when I saw them on instagram.
They are on their way,
in the mean time. I got them from my mother-in-law for Christmas.
But will have to return a pair, no need for two!

Now on to my loot!

from school:

plenty o' patterns from my family:

A skull clutch from my Nonna:

Love this glitter polish from my mom:
perfect for New Years!

My mother-in-law got me the Marc Jacobs clutch from the Target/Neiman Marcus collection!
Now my collection of that collection is complete!

Other presents from my fiancé's family,
lots of studs & metallics
my idea of neutrals!

Gifts from the fiancé:
the ily couture bracelet I have been wearing non-stop, a new Sigg Hello Kitty waterbottle, and flowers for my new car & office!
He also got me a trip to a B&B in Vermont!
SOOOO excited!

Barry had fun playing in daddy's new brewing pot:
pug stew anyone?!

Maggie & Barry loved their monstrous bone from Aunt Bianca,
