"I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles."

Hey there purple legs

Hello lovers! Happy groundhog day! One of the things you probably didn't know about me is that I love just about any and every holiday, particularly ones dedicated to furry little guys telling me that warmer weather is fast approaching! That little stinker better be right because even though I love my legs clad in purple, they are yearning to feel the sun! And I'm not sure I can stand my ghostly pale skin much longer! Although, as I'm sure my real-life friends would out me on here, I'm pale all year round. But I think it is a little better in the summer. Maybe...

I went for a pretty corporate look today with a billowy blouse and my favorite pencil skirt. But, not to worry, I glammed it up with these awesome tights and my ever trusty certain to add some edge Steve Madden lace up booties.
So what do you think of my your first peek into my apartment?? Can you tell how very excited I am to have my very own apartment. Everything about it is thrilling. Even writing that hefty rent check was thrilling, although that was more of  a I-am-now-totally-poor- and-should-never-shop-again-kind-of-thrill.
If you haven't guessed after yesterday's post and today's I am going to try and show you close ups of each component of my 30 for 30 items. We will see how that goes. If it isn't a format you like, don't hesitate to tell me in comments! I love feedback :)
It is so hard to tell in these photos but this MK beauty has a lovely little criss cross front, which is what instantly attracted me to the piece in the first place. Michael Kors sure does know how to pay attention to the details!
So remixers, how is it going so far? I know, it's only day 2 but I always like to hear your thoughts! Does anyone else feel like all the good sales have just suddenly appeared, or is that just little old shopping addict me? Oh ok, I guess I'll suck it up now and suffer in silence...

P.S. Did I mention that my title is inspired by an oh so lovely gentleman I encountered on my way to work this morning who thought that creepily saying this line to me while licking his chops would somehow make me swoon? Yep, how is that for a fine start to the day!
