i said goodbye to northeast minneapolis and made the move to uptown earlier this week. i'm living on top of a hill in a house which requires everyone to climb the exhausting staircase to the front door (my legs are still burning from going up and down the stairs while i was moving). my favorite room in this house, by far, is the sun room. it's very relaxing and soothing to be in.

these black wedge booties came in at h&m about two weeks ago. at $49.95, i think they're a pretty good alternative to the jeffrey campbell version. but i have to be honest: don't wear these for a 9 hour work shift. my feet are crying.
