These cute animal office organizers will certainly make even the most humdrum of tasks seem...well, slightly less humdrum. The day that I get an office (which will also be the day I get a beautiful house, see below), I will purchase these, assuming they are still in stock, and suddenly *bam*: I will be the master of all dull tasks, the champion of avoiding work-time boredom. Though, hopefully I'll have a job that I love, and these animals will be of no use but a place for me to store my equally colorful erasers and binder clips. Both available at www.momastore.org.
I have recently been very into sweat pants chic (what is this like Walmart chic? gross. hold tight, hold tight.). Comfy, warm, and let's be honest, quite classy when worn right.This outfit is inspired by Alexander Wang's collections. Sweatpants, Blazer, and Striped Tank by H&M. Necklace by Forever Twenty-One. Shoes by Franco Sarto. Additional photos courtesy of www.alexanderwang.com.
No, this is not where I talk about my love for Sean Combs (should I have titled this post P. Diddy? Is that more appropriate? I guess I'll deal with copyright issues later...), but instead where I talk about my undying love (yes, it's that bad) for this H&M cardigan. It is not a new purchase, but instead one I have owned for about three years. It can really spice up any jeans-and-a-white-t shirt combo. Plus, it's a nice textural flashback to the bold shouldered look. (And comfy, did I mention comfy?).
Cardigan, jeans, t-shirt, and scarf by H&M. (Dude I could totally be in their next ad campaign). Shoes by some shitty unknown company I bought at some shitty unknown store in Belgium. Good luck finding them. (But they were only 20 euros!)

It is times like this when I really feel I need to get away. Slush, wind, and ice (ice under slush? kill me now). While I'm sure January still exists in NYC or Paris (if you read that with a French accent, the two cities rhyme), a little vacation never did anyone any harm. Plus, there would be less tourists. It's that ugly time of year between the winter holidays and Easter. But alas, I cannot afford to jet half-way around the country, or half-way around the world, so I'm stuck with these wooden guys (plus the screen saver of Hong Kong on my laptop...). Wooden Statue of Liberty stamp and Paris wooden block toys (which is perfect for a desk decoration or any YUPy babies you know), both from http://www.muji.us.
