Currently Coveting


I'm sitting here on a Sunday afternoon, with most of my chores done. I've got a nice beef bourguignon going in the slow cooker. I was sorely disappointed that I didn't get out to see this horse yesterday as planned. For those of you that don't know, I haven't been riding actively the past 3 months (hence the lack of horsey photos lately) because Miss Fancy was sold. I was sad to see her go but it was imminent. On the bright side, I have started to slowly look for another horse and I am finally looking at something this week. I can't wait! Pics to come.

I've put together some things I'm obsessed with lately. I'd love to get my hands on the Knockout Matte nailpolishes (shown in highest picture, in Concrete and Pool). I've never been much of a hand polish wearer because of the horses, but for some reason, I think the matte finish might hold up better.

I'm also loving the leather Michael Kors gloves with the zippers, and this tweed dress from Shop Cuffs.



I'm seeing more girls sporting the Aigle rubber riding boots as an alternative to the Hunters wellies, and I think they are super cute. For town only though, as I would never give up real leather riding boots in the ring!

Hope you're all having a relaxing weekend. What did everyone get up to?

Teresa said...

yeah just read that the matte/sandpaper quality nail polish are in....the black or dark blue would be very cool. Is that girl from "Yeahs Yeahs Yeahs"?

wow I didn't know you were into horseback riding, that's very cool. I wanted to get into that when I was a kid but never did. Horses are beautiful creatures though, hope you find a new one soon! I'd love to see your horsey photos :)

great picks on the gloves and boots. I like the studs and I like how those boots look like riding boots, but they're rubber - def easier to keep clean haha

thanks for your comment btw! I appreciate the support and by that I mean, I NEED IT hahaha! have you reached a final decision re: chanel yet? because in about a week, I think I'm going to need you to vicariously buy it for me LOL

and re: survival tips, so far, stay away from shops if you know you have NO will power, otherwise, try to ask yourself "do I really need this"? and stick to buying only necessities like.. toothpaste or something hahaha, if I come up with any other tips, I will let you know!

@Teresa - yes that is Karen O from Yeah Yeah Yeahs. love them. yup i went out and got the matte red and concrete colours

@nicole - yup, just search horses on my blog and you'll see some of my horsey posts =D.

thanks for your comment! just remembered that you commented on a previous post about my eyelashes.. they're fake and I make custom lashes by cutting and gluing together pre-made false lashes until it looks the way I want them to. It is a lot of work so I am considering trying lash extensions, but so far my bizarre customized lash creations are what I wear to have that long lash look lol... yeah I'm just a little crazy.

ooh will def have to search up horses then! and yay, glad you finally decided on the Chanel of your choice, can't wait to see you blog about it! you deserve it ;)
