Lately, I have been a bit jewelry obsessed, and the fact that many of the jewelry boxes over at Anthropologie that I had my eye on are now on sale, has not helped matters at all. The problem is I made a vow that I would not purchase anything for myself until AFTER christmas. I have been in giving mode for weeks now, but it isn’t breaking the rules if I LOOK is it?? (My boyfriend would insert a quote here –using his 6 year old niece’s now infamous line, “I am JUST LOOOKING!!!!) The problem is I am obviously a shop-a-holic, so it is hard to resist making purchases, luckily, the long holiday lines have kept me away from the check out counter!!! I have not yet violated my vow, and if you need further evidence i will whip out my sad face ipod. Last time my ipod died (probably of battery failure) I ran out the next day and bought the newest model. I couldn’t bear the thought of going a day without it, so I didn’t even bother sending it in for repairs. My ipod has been acting up for about a month, and after constantly reseting it it gave me a sad face! I’ve been told my only option is to send it to a far away land to be repaired. It has been 3 days without my ipod and everyday I am sooo unbelievedly close to bitch slapping someone on the subway for being loud or obnoxious!!! I am hoping to receive a new ipod for christmas so I am hoping that I won’t have to worry about my sad face situation any longer. I have instead turned my focus to creating a jewelry wishlist as you can see below:

    OMG, I love everything on your list!! I can’t begin to pick the ones I like more than the other! I’m jewelry obsessed too. That’s pretty much what I requested for Christmas

    P.S. Love your blog! It’s fabulous. Can we exchange links? I’ve linked you at mine, http://ma-petite-chou.blogpost.com 😀

    Oh, I hope your ipod has a speedy recovery. (Though I’m glad you’re able to entertain yourself with jewelry in the interim!)
