Kittens, Mittens, and More

A coworker is staying with my roommate and I until she moves into her new apartment. Her adorable pup is named Miton. It means mitten in Spanish, which fits this classy young animal as he has white socks on a black body. I have enjoyed having a third housemate (and third four footed beast), even if it is temporary. Miton is a shy young thing and runs from both me and the camera, although I don’t think of myself as scary. I’m hoping to photograph him later this week because he is a beautiful creature.

My best friend Alli recently got a cat from a shelter and on Monday I met him. Mack is 6 years old and has a sparkling personality. Although he is still settling into his new home, I was still able to give him a tummy rub while he joined us on the couch.

This was the photo from the shelter:

Mack the Cat

Alli gave me the inside scoop and apparently he is in love with this soft fuzzy blanket, and loves to spend hours curled up in this chair.

I think he has the cutest face. It looks like he got into paint or something! Do you have any pets? Have you ever thought about adopting a pet from a shelter?



Reunited at last!

For the past three months, one of my friends has been living in Cambridge, Massachusetts. She flew home yesterday and we grabbed lunch and gabbed like little birds. We got our nails done and did a bit of boutique jewelry shopping. I picked up a new bangle by Stella and Dot. It’s made by the same company that also makes J. Crew’s bangles, a little tidbit the cashier at Therapy mentioned when I purchased it.

There is something so polished about having your nails done. I’m not sure exactly how, but my outfits feel that much more pulled together when I have cute nails. Illogical, I know. But it’s every little bit true.

I also had fun wearing my new J. Crew flats that I bought a few weeks back. Aren’t they adorable?

I have the gold capped ones and they fit so perfectly!

I had been wanting to bust them out on a fun occasional but nothing had really fit the bill. So, I wore them the whole day and they didn’t give me any blisters, which was surprising since my other J.Crew wedges gave me insane ones earlier this summer.

These are the ones that gave me blisters, but in Navy!


Anyway, happy Tuesday!
