Old & New

// Old & New sunnies that I’m loving //

// A new purse that is of utmost fashion & function //

// The new magazines & old lotion that I’m currently obsessed with //

// New reading glasses + reading material //

// Old sketches I found in a sketchbook in the basement //

There’s something great about getting new things and knowing they are yours, but there’s something magical about finding old things and mementos that remind us of past memories. Mixing the two is a great way to simultaneously recall the past and embrace the future.

Here’s a quote that got me thinking, I hope it does the same for you:
“You can’t liter negativity everywhere and then wonder why you’ve got a trashy life.” -Anonymous

There’s no better way to celebrate 2013 and ring in the new year than to go shopping! I have always loved to shop, and the Fashion Square Mall in Arizona is one of the best places to shop in the country. They have every store you could possibly imagine (including Michael Kors & Anthropology, two of my all-time faves), so it’s never to hard to find something you like. I spent a decent amount of time in Anthro today, and can we just take a moment and appreciate the decor of the store? I love, love, love the atmosphere in there–it makes everything so appealing. I found a dress for my birthday, and I also found a dress with cheetas/lions/tigers on it, and cmon– that’s just plain awesome. Have a happy New Year!
