As perfect Emily told Brad at the beginning of this season's Bachelor, "It's better to be home alone than home wishing you were alone." Amen sister. I get to watch whatever trash TV I want when I want, I can eat cereal for dinner and polish off a bottle of wine with absolutely no (OK, maybe a little) shame. I don't have to forgo Desperate Housewives or Brothers and Sisters when the NFL takes over every man's Sunday night (been there, no thanks). I mean, don't get me wrong, relationships can be fabulous, but so can being single. Yes, I'll throw myself a pity party from time to time, but I've learned to embrace the single life. This is the last time in my life I don't have to worry about anyone else's needs but my own, and I plan on enjoying every second of it. I refuse to waste my twenties living in the future worrying about what is going to happen down the road. My life is what is happening now, not worrying about when I am going to get married, buy a house, have kids, etc. Ya heard???
Wow. I don't know where all that came from, but I'm glad that's off my chest. Now to the topic at hand.
So you may remember I had a La Plate on my Christmas wish list, and guess what? Santa (aka my Grandma) came through! My bedroom is chocolate brown, light green, some bronze and a little bit of white. So I decided on brown on brown. You likey?
|Isn't she a beaut?|
And a closer look:
Notice my Lafco House and Home Collection candle? This candle was featured as one of Oprah's Ultimate Fave Things this season. I haven't really disclosed this yet, but I'm obsessed with her. Every night I watch her show that I DVR during the day and now, I also DVR almost every single show on her OWN network. Is she trying to ruin me? I don't have any more room in my TV line-up. UGH!
And for inquiring minds, that is Aldi's Lacura - Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Night Cream and it's only $3.99, smells heavenly and I lather it around my eyes every night. Just check out the rave reviews of it on Make-Up Alley. It's now a staple in my skin care routine.
