allow me to reintroduce myself


I haven't updated this blog in nearly six whole months and have missed doing so the entire time. My only serious resolution for 2013 is to give this petite corner of the internet some attention on a regular basis, starting with some gems from my holiday season. Our New Year's Eve window display at work was my favorite ever and involved a lot of spilled glitter which was consequently traipsed around the entire store.


My mom has given me an ornament for the tree every year since I was born, but this one is so amazing I plan on keeping it on my bookshelf year round. Not pictured: the other 4678572 feline decorations that adorn my new abode.


I've also amassed a small collection of feline prose, including this astounding piece of literature which was given to me by a friend. The backdrop is an amazing dress which cost $20 and makes me smile every time I look at it.


For Christmas Eve I wore my black dress from Top Shop which manages to incorporate glitter, velvet, and polka dots in one garment and is therefore among my favorite pieces of clothing ever. The hot pink faux fur coat was one of my favorite presents this year and will be elaborated upon in the near future.


This was our sixth Christmas since the death of my dad, who is missed even more than usual at this time of year. He'd given this tiny ceramic thimble to his aunt as a gift when he was a boy and she gave it to me this Christmas. As much as I love my gorgeous new jacket, this was obviously the most amazing gift to receive.

Such wonderful photos and memories Sarah :) I especially love the story about the thimble and can imagine how amazing that must have been to receive. My dad also passed away (12 years ago but it still feels like 2) so I can relate to holidays being a bit difficult at times. I look forward to your posting in 2013 and hope you have a happy new year! x
