I’ve gone and dug my own grave this past holiday, I think. I played in the same chair I sit to work in, for like, ten whole days straight. We’re in a fresh new year on self-declared clean slate and all I can smell is 2013 wafting from the leather of the wheely desk chair because as we all know the entire year was peanut butter cookies and pizza, in a nutshell. Especially the last few days during which I successfully transformed my workstation into a food-smeared playstation. I got up early on the first working day of the year, got dressed, hosed down the chair with a febreeze and sat down, ready to do an honest day’s work and found myself clicking on the Call of Duty icon without thinking, then proceeded to tour Mother Russia in a tank to defeat the Nazis. Hooray for stupid. Well, to start with, it took several attempts to get dressed because I kept putting shoes on before any pants, and had to Youtube how to tie shoelaces. It’s like when you sit on your hand for too long and it goes so numb it forgets how to be a hand. Except I haven’t set a foot outside the house for the past two weeks and have forgotten how to human. Anyway, back to the grind, shoelaces flailing and all.

Speaking of cookies, I baked a whole new batch last night for some reason. Screw the new year, I’m staying in 2013 until they’re gone.

  3. Your posts are always so funny and witty! I really want your New Balances O.O but noticed they’re not available in women’s? did you get the kid size? Because I think that’s what I’m going to do…get them in the biggest kid size available. The men’s are too big for me :(

  4. Girl, perhaps you should select slip-ons or loafers your first week. :)

    Happy New Year!

  5. 10 days without going out, that´s kind of long! But you are still so stylish, even with the most simple outfit! Great photos!

  10. It’s so crazy to see new balance a thing now. In DC it’s so common to wear them, but women don’t style them this way. I have a few ideas to dress mine up though. My favorite color are the grey ones.
