Fuzzy socks!

So now that it is starting to get cold....I am reminded of my winter coping mechanisms. Long fuzzy socks.

These are my favorite:
Forever21 socks!

I own 5 pairs I think. They are perfect for long boots. I refuse to wear any other type of shoes in the winter. I see a lot of girls in flats and heels on way to work, and I wonder how their feet are still functioning. I also try to avoid wearing uggs to work because then I may as well be wearing a snuggie.

atuts highly recommends these, and at $5, it's an affordable luxury :)

I know I am very late to discovering this...but pinkberry is super tasty. They opened a new store right on Newbury by my office, and I have had the opportunity to indulge several times. The mango flavor was great, for some reason the fruit there tastes better than anywhere I've had recently! Not to mention unlimited toppings. The best part, its only a semi-guilty snack. Yoghurt chips aren't bad for you...right? Anyways, this is a small thing I am grateful for, and I hope it doesn't turn into a full blown obsession. I don't need anymore bad habits!


I always wonder- what did I ever do without Pandora. I think it might be my absolute favorite discovery. I used to stream my Lady Gaga station (the week Fame Monster came out) for literally the entire work day. After a while, I started to get intense ear-aches and had to limit my consumption to 4 hours of Pandora a day. When I first got the iPhone- and discovered Pandora was an app- probably the happiest iPhone-related moment of my life. It has saved me from thousounds of bored hours on the T, and through many of my mediocre work-out sessions.

Why am I doing this?

Recently I have experienced what I consider as a string of very bad luck.  I have become overwhelmed with all these unfortunate events, and have lost track of what  I have that I still like.

Right now, I know that I am thankful for my fantastic friends that literally pick me up off the ground and remind me that not all is lost.
