back to the lookbook though...can i just sayyyyy....i think it's awesome they didn't use a professional model for this shoot but rather used photographers. the Kidds work on most of the Ruche lookbooks and i've admired their work for so long i'm so glad they're being featured in the Ruche summer lookbook. they're the freakin cutest and kristin has the best smile! anywayyyy, i have so many favorite items from this lookbook i know my paycheck is going to sufferrrrrr. my top faves are in the first image, but believe me, it was ridiculously hard trying to narrow that down. you should see my wishlist right now, it's a hot mess. sigh.

*if you're new here...yes, i work for Ruche, Inc. No, my posts are not sponsored by Ruche, Inc. I do love Ruche (obvi or else i wouldn't work there silly!) so any time i post any items from Ruche, Inc it's because i truly love the items!

ein hund

am i writing in two days in a row!? don't get used to it! haha. jasssss keeeedin. yesterday was cool, Jenn, Ein & i went to the chili cook-off in tustin but......we left. lol. it was not as cool as we had anticipated, although everything sure did smell amazing! i mean, i don't really know exactly w h a t  we were expecting. the booth to buy the chili tickets was ridiculously hard to find, people were hanging out in the center of the walkway making it difficult to get by and did i mention there were lots of people? i dont regret leaving at all. but i do wish i had eaten a pulled pork sandwich they were selling because damn did it look good!

anyway, we left after ten minutes and then went to get brunch at my fave local place. i promised little Ein a sprinkles cupcake, but we got side tracked by the bunny park. we had a lot of fun running and terrorizing little children. you guys, i've been bitten by the doggy bug, i really really really R E A L L Y  want a doggie. T____T. D wants to get a cardigan corgi, but they're so hard to find. all the ones we have found are all in faraway states and we both feel kind of weird about getting a doggy shipped to us. it just doesn't seem right. annnnnd i really want to adopt a doggy, but D wants a cardigan corgi puppy. i have a feeling once he gets his puppy i'll have the green light to adopt a dog. besides two doggies are better than one! :)

okay back to my monday schedule....of saturday dreamin' ;).

this should be our next easter photo hehe

love that little Ein-bear!

Burger grrrl lives!

oh, haaaaaaaaiiiii. happy june! :) haha sorry for the absence again, i definitely lost track of time in the crazy that was the last two weeks. i had an awesome memorial day weekend that was basically a five day weekend! i'm not even kidding. i probably should have taken advantage of that and gone somewhere, but i'm boring and i had a ridiculously good time doing absolutely nothing. i did a quick update on sunday but that was about all the internet-ing i did so i definitely have a lot of blog reading left to do!

although i didnt go anywhere for my break, i did get a lot of cleaning done! my cleaning project right now is to go through all the piles and piles of magazines and sort through them. i'm only keeping the magazines that cost me $12+ and all the generic vogues, details, gq's, travel and leisture, etc. im setting aside for recycling. but first i'm going through them and taking out all the interesting pages. for example, i'm taking out all the work out pages and recipes from the women's health magazines i've managed to collect. since i worked at the bookstore i would get a discount on magazines and sometimes magazine subscriptions and i just went crazy signing up for all the things. also, i did cash out true blue miles for magazines since they were about to expire and i wasn't going anywhere. and that's part one of how i became a hoarder.  

now, let's take some time for this outfit. i really enjoy when bloggers post their lazy day outfits because let's be real guys, half the time we're not as cute/cool/well dressed as we make ourselves to be. i make it a point to never dress for the blog, but rather dress for my moods. and odds are if i'm wearing a cute outfit, i probably took photos at work. i can't necessarily show up looking like a slob (although i seriously don't think anyone would mind!). so if i can grab someone who has time to spare, i'll have them snap some shots. the point i'm trying to make is that even though sometimes we portray ourselves on the internet as these really cool people who can dress well, some times we just spend our days in pants and tees. it can't just be me right? and that just makes me feel better about bloggers, like hey you're actually human, cool! i think i like you more now ;). ya feel?

anyway, this is definitely a lazy day outfit. and let's be real, that's what weekends were made for right? Pants, a comfy tee, boots and light jacket. i'm all about it. 

this tee was on my wishlist foreverrrrrrr! i just couldn't give in to paying for shipping for just a shirt so it just sat in my wishlist. but then i got lucky and won a gc to UrbanOG on instagram and finally got this shirt! yay! even better when it's free ^___^. it's ridiculously soft too! a perfect burger shirt for burger girl! i ALMOST wore it with my burger necklace but D said it was overkill lol.

brown and black together? idgaf.

also, i think it's time we discuss these modern vice boots. my newest addition (and should be my final for at least a few months) to my shoe collection! they are freaking beautiful. they made a huge dent in my wallet...but i just couldnt say no. Threadsence had a killer memorial day weekend sale and i got these babies for 40 percent off! still a high number but let's be real, that's the cheapest i will ever see these babies go for. thus, financial irresponsibility brain went on. sigh. i almost was going to return them because they were just a little too pointy toed for my taste, but after sitting on it for a few days i decided they were too rock and roll to not keep them. 

all right. i hope ya'll have a cool week! i'm not going to promise any updates, since i always break those promises because i suck. haha. until next time!
