home, but not homely

I'm home in Philadelphia for a week of Spring Break -- kind of sad, right? While almost all of my friends are toasting in Miami, I'm saving money (for Prague) and chilling at home. So far, I've been devouring guacamole and watching movies like it's my job -- chips and Roman Holiday, anyone? But I really want this week to be about maintenance, about edifying the body and mind. So, I made a few goals for the next few days, including completing my list of impressive (and not so impressive) reading, getting some new trousers tailored, getting a trim, working out, etc.

Yet Spring Break will inevitably be about pleasure too. And it should be! I love indulging in the little things that make me feel good, like taking bubble baths (with the best playlist ever: classical and dance-pop) and purchasing (at 30% off!) this gorgeous pair of Nine West wedges I've been obsessing over for awhile. Early birthday present? I'm excited to wear these sandals when the weather is warmer (or just pair it with some black tights for a winter-chic look).

My friends, what do you love to do in your downtime? Have you indulged in some retail therapy lately?

  1. I don't know why but I really don't like wedges.

    If those were heals though...I would probably get them. :D

    You missed the DSW sale!!!!

  2. For some reason, I don't really like DSW... but gosh, I'm sad I didn't get to check out a sale!

    20% off at Piperlime today, if you're interested:

  4. HAHA. retail therapy = story of my life!

    I go to the nearest shopping strip the moment I feel the blues. Stress, frustration, even fatigue, all cured through retail therapy.

    and I LOVE DSW. all my favorites shoes are from there. They have amazing discounts on Franco Sartos!
