147. tonic tuesday.

Here's another new weekly feature on the blog, where I pick a few different items from vintage Etsy shops that I would LOVE to own/wear/buy if I had expendable income. Sometimes there will be a theme, but for the most part, it's just things that I'm diggin'. Let me know whatcha think!

146. music monday: The Decemberists - "Angel, Won't You Call Me?"

Welcome to my first Music Monday post. Every Monday, I'll post a video of a song that I'm into at the time. Sometimes I'll accompany the video with some thoughts, sometimes I won't. Feel free to comment and download the songs if you like them! :)

I love driving to work listening to this really sweet song by The Decemberists.

145. birthday birthday birthday!

Tomorrow (or today, depending on when I get around to posting this), September 15th, I turn 24 years old - hooray! I'll be celebrating at work all day! D:

But after work, I'll be having a Thai feast with my family, boyfriend, and best friend! After that, we're going to a bar in New Brunswick that gives you a free bottle of champagne on your birthday. Awesome, huh?

Read on for some birthday-related photos and info about a sweet birthday sale!

I wish this was my cake when I was six, because it would've been SO fitting.

Bears and dinos gotta party, too!

And to celebrate my birthday, I'll be having a sale in my shop! 50% off all items from now until midnight on Wednesday (9/15) evening. Just say "Happy Birthday, Lauren!" in the note to seller!

143. reading rainbow.

Although I have a pretty sweet book shelf in my room (invisible shelves-what whaaat!)...

I can't help but swoon over this rainbow color-coordinated bookshelf display. I'm not even a big "book" person, but I'm in love with this setup. Color me jealous (no pun intended)!

142. lookin' messy, runnin' errands.

I wore this while working around the house this past weekend. I've got a tough-yet-housewifey vibe going on. Sorta Rosie the Riveter-esque? I don't know; maybe the heat is getting to me. I'm wearing a vintage t-shirt from my Grandma, Gap 1969 jeans, thrifted shoes, and a vintage scarf that may or may not end up in the shop.

Speaking of the shop, don't forget about the current sale:

139. mason jar lamps and party inspiration.

My birthday party is next weekend, and obviously I've already started preparing. I think I definitely NEED some mason jar lamps. How charming are these? Seriously.
