At any other time, I would have just thrown this out and bought a new one. But I think JP's attitude about money has been rubbing off on me lately, so I thought of a way to make this look cleaner and maybe, a little bit newer without spending a lot.

This is my jewelry box. The inside is made of felt, and it's gotten dirty over the years. I tried to use a damp cloth with soap to clean it a couple of months ago, and I think it just made the thing look dirtier. There's even some residue.

I think a lot of brides have this problem, but don't really talk about it openly. Unless you're one of those crafty/creative women filling Pinterest with DIY ideas. If you're one of them, I hate you. Haha. Kidding.
You see, it's been nine months, and I still haven't figured out what to do with some leftover stuff from the wedding. I've been scouring the 'net for how to reuse these extras. Read on, and let me know if you have more suggestions.

One of the things JP and I constantly talk about these days is where we're going to settle down and when we plan to go about getting there. A couple of weeks ago, I literally cried (like, you know, with tears and snot and all) out of frustration because I was bugging JP to "give me a place, and give me a date", and he couldn't (in hindsight, I should have expected it, because, really, who can think clearly with a bawling woman in front of him? hehe). I think the outburst was a culmination of emotions running amok after a recent situation we had, where I felt that I wasn't in control of things. So maybe by getting JP to answer my questions, I really was trying to get back some semblance of control over my(our) life.

How'd your Valentine's weekend go? I hope it was all sweet and romantic. Today's collage is all about the colours of love. You know I love pink, but red? Hmm, not so much. This weekend, while I was browsing, I saw Taylor Swift in this pretty dress, and thought, ok, let's look at more pink and red combos. Not so bad, huh?
I think the softer pink tames the boldness of the red. The combination is a definite standout, but still so feminine, right?
Happy Monday! Hope you have a good week ahead!

Just in time for Valentine's week, I finally finished my first book for this year. I've mentioned previously that I was struggling to start my Reading Challenge last month. And after so many nights of plodding through 400+ pages, I'm done with Nicholas Sparks' latest novel.
Here's my review (plus my Valentines gift to you)
