Awesome Jewelry at Urban Outfitters: Part 1

Howdy friends! I love looking for original/quirky housewares at Urban Outfitters, but lately I've been lusting over lots of their jewelry. How happy my eyes/ears/wrist/neck were to spot a bunch of cute stuff on sale at Urban (and some not on sale but still decently priced.) While this jewelry isn't going to last forever, it's fun until you get sick of it and then can afford sportin' for something else.

Here are some of my favorite pieces.

Loving this Metal Bauble and Leather Necklace, $38

This Circa 78 Wildflower Necklace, $38 is Circa Awesome
This Camera Necklace, $28, keeps me smilin'

I'm obsessed with this Zipper Necklace, $49.99

Happy Shopping!

Have An Awesome Weekend!

Like, I said, we're back, and ready to party. (Sorta.) Since I have a random cold while it's 103 degress outside, this weekend might be spent mainly watching movies and catching up on bad tv. And since it’s too hot to really do anything anyway, head to the movies to see Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, My Sister’s Keeper, Away We Go, The Hangover, The Proposal, or Up. More on that in a bit. Anyhoo! Here's a roundup of just some of the stuff going on around town this weekend. As always, let me know if you have something to add.

And We're Back With More Awesome

Could I take ANY longer to feed you all with amazing bits of pointless info? NO!
Sorry for the delay. I've been buried! Anyhoo, today is Friday and the weekend is upon us. I'm so ready. Are you?

Working on the weekend guide now, and then we'll backtrack so you won't go a day (even though you already have) without something awesome.

In the meantime, my 100th post is coming up! To celebrate, I will be doing a giveaway on the blog! All you have to do is comment with your favorite number. I'll draw a number out of a hat, and boom! GIVEAWAY.

So much awesome, on its way.
