HAPPY MONDAY: IKEA RUN

Monday, September 17



It was supposed to be a 20minute trip. But that never happens. Especially not when I have company in the form of my cousin Tina. Next thing we know we've killed a good few hours. I stop by Ikea enough to pretty much know what they have to offer.  However, they recently released their 2013 catalogue and so there were actually a few new things in store. Even more reason to walk slowly, sit on every chair, touch every pillow, rethink some storage solutions. My cuz actually had more reason to be there, she was actually shopping. I was pretty much taggin along, that is until I started grabbing stuff off the shelf, all the while refusing suggestions that maybe I should get a bag or a cart. See, I wasn't really shopping and a bag or cart would imply otherwise and I didn't want that.








Wanted this lamp bad. New addition, its on my list.


After finally dragging ourselves away from there, had to stop by Baked in Brooklyn. One of my fav stops for cupcakes, especially their carrot and red velvet. Too bad for me they were out of carrot, so I tried pistachio instead. Not bad at all. I've mentioned here before how dairy products make me break out. Well, I'm in the I don't care place right now. Can't seem to stop eating cake and ice-cream, my poor face is having to pay for my mouth.
FYI: If you're loving her hair, like I do, she's got a youtube channel, you should check out.

Best part of the day though, was bumping into Rue Ru. She reads the blog and I was so pleased (and shy, and nervous, its a funny thing being recognized). Rue Ru, if you're reading, I hope 2 things...First, that I spelled your name right. (found out there's no 'e') Second..where did you get those glasses? She was super sweet, had only the nicest things to say...really made my day. Did I also mention that she's super pretty and quite the fab chic herself. Anyways, it was a positive day, positive people, positive energy. A good way to kill a Sunday.


Now, on to the the weekly Grind. Shouldn't be too bad, right folks?
