You guys - we adopted a kitty!
Boo and I have been trying add a little fur ball to our family for months now, but the stars just didn’t align… until this weekend. We headed to the shelter on a gorgeous saturday, after laying out in the sun and enjoying the city, not really expecting anything. We knew how crazy the shelter can be on kitty day - lines out the door, people fighting over the poor kittens. But we got in there, laid our eyes on this little guy, and were told we could take him home that day.
His name is Henry. And he is pitch black. He’s a cuddler, but also a little maniac. And we love him.
You’re sure to see him around here quite a bit. And if you follow me on Instagram, you will definitely be seeing a lot of him. I’ma cat lady now.
Last Thursday, I was invited to co-host the LOFT grand re-opening event at Prudential Center. Alongside Emily, Amy, and Alana, we mingled with customers, offered styling advice, and took way too many Instagram photos (in true blogger fashion). Oh, and there were music and delicious cocktails. So.Fun.
The store looked impeccable, and the clothes were the cutest. Seriously, I’m not just saying that. I spent some time before the event trying on a bunch of different outfits, and I wanted them all. In fact, I think I might be going back for a few more items (shhhh, don’t tell Boo).
Thanks to the LOFT and Blog Better Boston girls for such a lovely evening!
P.S - I didn’t get any proper outfit photos (seeing as I picked it out just before the event started). But trust me - I will definitely be repeating this outfit.
Here’s what I wore:
» It seems I find a new swimsuit every week that I think I need (can you tell I’m ready for summer?). This week, it is this one.
» I’m still at a lose for words for what happened here in Boston monday. I’ve been loving all the little bits of love for the city - little handwritten notes left in random spots, and my hockey team, the Buffalo Sabres, saluting the Boston fans alongside the Bruins after wednesday’s game. And that national anthem? Ugh, so good. UPDATE: THINGS HAVE GOTTEN CRAZY. IF YOU LIVE IN THE AREA, STAY INSIDE AND STAY SAFE. I’m not going anywhere today.
