Big Shiny Things


Sweater: Gap
Jeans: Old. My best guess would be Target. Also worn here.
Shoes: Ann Taylor  here.
Necklace: Nordstrom Rack
Jacket:  Photographer’s not mine

Everybody just be cool. I know it’s the last week of January and Mercury is reportedly in retrograde but just remain calm folks.  Everything is going to be fine. Breathe in deeply, exhale slowly and repeat after me- Today will be what it is. I will be who I am, and there will be beauty in both. I don’t know who came up with that phrase. If you do please give them a big cyber hug for me because that was good stuff.

Speaking of good stuff I am writing this post from my brand spanking new laptop. Every time I turned on my old laptop this very nice lady kept asking me If I wanted to play. I kept saying no but she kept popping up and winking at me. It was starting to get really weird.

I went back and forth about what type of laptop to get. I considered the forbidden fruit company, especially since I love my Ipad but in the end I just couldn’t bring myself to fork out that kind of dough for something I have to plug in.  Twenty-five dollars for nail polish, sixty-five dollars for a candle and I probably will not bat an eye. I’m not going to ask you to buy it for me either so relax.  However, once we get into the four figure range I want a complimentary eye mask and socks.

So I got a Toshiba. What’s that you say? You don’t know anyone with a Toshiba laptop Well now you do.  And yes, I’m sharing this with you so that when if one day I cave and get a Mac you can use this post to mock me ☺.

I’ll show you a pic of Toshi next time. Have a great week!

    You are so hilarious Comely. You totally cracked me up with this post especially the part where you were contemplating getting the "forbidden fruit" computer or a Toshiba…:-). It does not matter what the brand is so long as it works and you keep on posting these great blog posts.Beautiful sweater and shoes and the statement necklace is also just fabulous. Have a great week.

    I am over the moon! So happy you got a TOSHIBA! Nothing gets through that sucker. My husband got me the Satellite P755D for my birthday three years ago. I spilled sweet tea on it. My son dropped it straight from my desk. It still works like the first time I used it. I love the outfit. You look gorgeous. And I love, love the shoes.

    Your hair looks good like that. And those jeans look so comfy. As for your new computer, good for you. I dont think brand matters as much, as long as it does what you need it to do.

    Funky sweater and great show game 🙂 Lol you heard about retrograde too – pretty deflating stuff for anyone planning a new change – that's what I gathered from other source. I'm not too big on that stuff but I find it interesting – hopefully this year will be a great one ! 🙂

    Thank you 🙂 I'm not big on astrology either but I did hear about it and thought it was an interesting read.
