Cupid, Can You Hand me The Merlot? Or Leave. Either Way.

that day is around the corner. I’m less than pleased, every year it rolls around, I re-decide that I’m the grouchy singleton. I’d like to think this year will be different though. I’m really happy where I am in my life, and with my friends. This year we’re going to a nice restaurant in Lansing called Troppo. Their food is amazing and I’ve heard their wine is even better. If I don’t have a looming exam I’ve already decided I’m dragging my butt with whoever wants to come with me to see the new movie “This Means War” with Reese Witherspoon, Chelsea Handler, Chris Pine, and Tom Hardy (If you don’t remember, he was in Inception).

Then, we shall come home and I’m going to take a relaxing bath with a bath bomb, from Level Naturals, my new favorite brand for bath bombs and soaps, I should point out. And read a book. Always with a book in hand.

Level Naturals “Forest” Bath Bomb 6-Pack – $15

 

If I could, I’d be shopping too. For these lovely items I’ve been crushing on (get it, V-day joke?)

Eagle Talon Necklace in White Bronze – $50 from mdr74 (Moon Raven Designs)

Three Tone Pleated Skirt – $30 from Mikkat Market

Midler Platform Pumps from Jeffery Campbell – $165 at ShopNastyGal

 

No matter what you do, I hope your V-day is great, whether it be bonding with friends and a good book, or your man.

Do Dating Rules Apply to Shopping Too?

Okay, obviously not all of them. I was thinking specifically of that one where supposedly (I’ve never tried it myself) if you hold off on sex for a few months, it’s even better when you do have it. I’m a fairly poor college student… My dad has informed me I get to go to Chicago, (oh the magical windy city, I love you) for my spring break. I’m going to not do ANY shopping until I go. I just decided this a few days ago, and to be totally honest, I’m dying inside already. So does shopping after an extended hiatus make it better? I’d like to think it will haha 🙂

Hi, my name is Lisa and I am a shopaholic.

I plan on going all over the city when I’m there: to Akira in Bucktown, to Topshop, and basically the whole miracle mile… My bank account is going to take a major hit, even if I pay off my credit card now, and my dad gives me a little helping out money. I’m mentally preparing. And I already am missing it.

So if you happen to know any way to sooth my shopping deprived soul, or any good places to go to in Chicago *wink wink* I’d really appreciate it.
