Bracelet by Orange is the Sun at Etsy

Seriously, we all did them right? I used to bust out the coloured embroidery thread and work away making these bracelets. I had a book that taught me different designs. It was fun times.

Now we can see them popping up in all sorts of places. I like it. Nostalgic. It can be the pop of colour in your outfit.

Make your own! I really like this DIY by Honestly…wtf.

And remember GIMP cord??? ~yy

NO buying, but I’m still coveting.

So last month, my friend and I decided to do a 30-day purchasing diet inspired by others and tweaked to our needs. We basically failed by a shirt or 2. So this month, I begin my goal again and with determination. It’s a tempting world, what with online purchasing so easily within reach. I’m hoping to Pinterest all my covets as a way to appease my desires. Today, I want these shoes. What things do you have your eye on? ~yy

So it’s been forever since our last post. Lurgs is traveling so that’s her excuse. I don’t have one…except I’m really lacking in inspiration lately. Anyhow, just wanted to blog about this really tasty lobster joint called….Lobster Joint in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Every time I visit my sister, I have to have a lobster roll. Luckily my fish allergy does not extend to crustaceans and what would I do without lobster?! Sue brought me to this place last month and I can’t wait to go again! It’s the biz.

They’re not skimpy on the lobster meat and it’s not over-mayonaissed. Fries were good too but you can always opt for a salad instead which was yum as well. You can have your lobster in other ways too…soup, salad, or just the old-fashioned way…steamed. They also have other seafood on hand such as oysters and mussels.~yy
