Real*Love (CityBlis Edition!)

I was recently asked to join a fashion website, which made me laugh a little because I'm not exactly super fashionable.  But, since it's been a long time since I've done a Real*Love post, I figured I'd check out their site and show you my favorites.  Here we go!

Black Asymmetric LeMuse Blouse with Buttons  $85- I love the ruched sleeves on this and the fact that it looks pretty hip (do people still even say "hip"? Seriously, I'm stunned these people asked me to join their group.) while not being constricting or uncomfortable looking.  I like how the buttons on the back give it a little extra sparkle, too:

Ashley dress in gray $180- I really wish flapper-style dresses would come back in...well, style. I drool over what the ladies are wearing in Boardwalk Empire and Downton Abbey! I especially like the Peter Pan collar on this one.

This is my second pick from the brand LeMuse, so it's probably safe to say they're worth checking out. This one has cute back buttons too, sort of like the black one, and I'm liking the black-and-beige color scheme these days.  Something very European about it.

That's all I have for now, but I'll be taking a look at CityBlis now and again and hopefully posting more Real*Love soon!

29 tomorrow, yikes.

So tomorrow I turn 29 which is 365 days away from 30, which is a little scary.

My boss and coworkers took me out to the Cheesecake Factory today to celebrate, which was fun.
I also got some pretty flowers. :)

I've come a long way in the past few years: finding a good relationship, a good job, graduating college. (Practically) finishing my novel.

I just need to make a list now of the 30 things to do before I turn 30.  Anyone have any good ones?

Day One.

Today was my first day back at the gym after a long absence.  I think it's been six months since I was last seriously "checking out" gyms, and this time I just ran right in, paid up, and spent the next 3 hours working out.  The girl at the counter laughed at me for having my gym bag with me.  

"I'm determined."  I told her.

And I am.
