where i've been, what i've worn, who i've seen, etc.

How I've missed you, lovely blog readers! I have been all over the place the past few weeks, just crazy busy with work and visitors (my beautiful aunts - Mom's sisters - were here for a week). I managed to squeeze in time to film a few more craptastic videos for Youtube (I ordered a Gorillapod, which will hopefully make filming LOADS easier!) but I just couldn't find time or energy to work on my poor neglected blog. I'm uploading my February Favorites video as I'm writing this post (going to take 3 hours to upload - thanks, HD!). Yay!

Anyways, I just wanted to do a "random mish-mash of photos" type post, because I just have WAY too much to catch you guys up on! haha This is also a favorite blog post style for lazy girls who are sleepy (a.k.a. me). ;)

w/my aunt (who bought an initial pendant @ Tiffany's and was super-excited about it!)

Cows behind my apartment...

...and the Sammiest of snuggles in my bed.

Yes, that was a crapload of pictures. I hope I didn't crash your browser. Anyways, now I'm caught up with one thing, at least! Next up, what else? A HAUL. Gee, how surprising! God, Jess, do you really need anymore lipsticks? Always!! ;) 

Anyways, I hope you can forgive my absence. I won't be having any more visitors for quite a while, so it should be back to the usual routine, which means MORE BLOGGING! Yay! :D

And a reminder: if you like amateur beauty videos, you can find me on Youtube now, username: jemorjerrica. Here are my most recent badly-filmed endeavors:

As always, thank you SO MUCH for reading! You guys make my life. <3

  1. You take all the best pictures...seriously. You have a talent for documenting your life/what you're up to in such an authentic and inherently interesting way. Aren't I DEEP. Lmao, but seriously, I love your damn blog so damn much :D <333 xxx

    1. Your comments make me all warm and fuzzy (or maybe it's the kitty in my lap). Now make a damn video. My subscription box is too light on badassness at the moment.

  2. love all the pictures , you look really pretty


  3. that greek pizza looks yummy!! Looks like you had an awesome week and great vlogs!xx

    1. Thanks! And as for that pizza.. oh, it WAS. I'd like another soon please! ;D

  4. I sooo love your snuggly kitty pics. They always make me go and snuggle up to my two little babies!

    1. So do I! Sometimes I feel like it's lazy, but at the same time, I love reading others' photo-diary type posts, so why not? :)

  6. I LOVE that Gap dress! Can you please put in a link to it, or let me know the SKU - I can't find it online. Thanks!!

    1. Hi Nina! I'm pretty sure it's only available in-store. If you get a chance, I would definitely try to visit a Gap to try it on! It was 69.95 @ full-price, so I'd recommend scouring the 'net for coupons beforehand, too. :D

    1. Gap really has some cute clothes in right now - I spotted some more covetable striped tees (I can never have enough, apparently) there today, but somehow managed to resist! *phew*

  8. I do believe in the background of the final photo I see a purse that I just happened to order myself too. Well, if it is from Aldo, if not then it's still very similar! :) Looks like you had a wonderful time! Family...and shopping is always a great time! :)

    1. Good eye, my friend - indeed it is! Can you believe I bought TWO Aldo bags in the past month? AND A WALLET! I'm a crazy cat lady AND a crazy bag lady now. >_< But seriously, it's such a beautiful bag. Aldo really makes the best affordable handbags and accessories, if you ask me! <3

  9. LOVE those hot pink flats! and everytime I see Sammy snuggling with you, I wanna run out and get another kitten lol

    1. Do it do it! Crazy Cat Lady is contagious. :D

  10. I fell in love with the dress, it is SOOOOOO pretty with this kind of pleated skirt!Awesome!!!

    P.S. have to mention that you have the most adorable kitties i've ever seen. The photos when they sleep are so sweet/cute :-)


  11. Beautiful dress! Unfortunately both Gap stores near me don't have it :( do you know the style number?

  12. Great post! Looks like you and your aunts had a fun time shopping. I love that you have cows right in your back yard! :) The kitties are looking adorable. I have a giant Maine Coon kitty, she has a bit of "cattitude" but is a sweetie at heart. The LBD from the Gap is so pretty!

  13. Amazing blog! You look absolutely stunning! I´m officially hooked.
