Some things I like right now... Target Edition

Here's a Target edition of "Some things I like" because this first item got me excited.
Orla Kiely for Method products due to hit Target this Fall (photo via Elle). Custom scents include vanilla chai, pear ginger, primrose, and bay leaf. I will probably buy my favorite one and refill it for the rest of eternity.

Room Essentials printed tumblers in chevron (left), $1.79,  and floral (right), $1.99.

Room Essentials pom pom pillows in teal and gray, $14.99 each.

Privet House at Target® rope poufs in neutral and lemon, $79.99 each.

I am admittedly not a big fan of Rachael Ray, however I love her line of cook and bakeware. I originally bought one of these orange stoneware pieces from Target, and ended up also buying a couple of non-stick pans (less expensive at Home Goods). Not only are they all great, but all the pieces come in all my favorite colors.

I've got a new job and I'm loving it. I am actually super busy at this new job. Things were slowing down quite a bit at my last job and I was feeling unchallenged and bored, so I am extremely happy with this new situation. A lot of days I come home and don't really feel like working on the computer anymore (except for the occasional Pinterest, of course), so I just watch TV in bed, or read a magazine, or play Words With Friends or all of the above. Which explains the sporadic posting. It's sporadic for good reasons :)

We went to go watch roller derby again. Part of me wants to join. but the other part of me is a big pansy. 

Mama and Zoey matching jammies.

I got a steam burn on my fingers and the pain was unbearable. I was told to put a pickle on it. Then someone else said mustard. And while my fingers would have been delicious on a ciabatta bun, they still hurt like hell. I read online that putting aluminum foil on a burn helps. I can now vouch for this method!

Limited edition Gooble plush doll! My friend Paul got me one at Comic Con. And by "me" I mean Zoey, even though I totally want to steal it from her.

Some things I like right now... wearables

Dahlia Forties Floral Skater Dress, $107.71, ASOS.
Reminds me of Lauren Moffatt.
Promise Sakova Jade Green Mary Jane Ballet Flats, $21.00, Lulu's.

Leipzig hoodie in navy, $63.99, ModCloth
I've talked about my love of the fancy hoodie before. 

Wish Upon A Star dress, $46.99,  Ruche.

This is a cape by American Apparel, as seen on ASOS, and I can't decide how I feel about this. I like capes because... well, it's a damn cape and you get to say you're wearing a cape. And I just like the way this looks. I like this one in particular because it's lightweight like a hoodie, so it's great for living in California, where you don't often need heavy outwear. On the American Apparel site, the cape does not look that good. See for yourself here. I fear that ASOS may be trying to trick me into thinking this cape is cute because it looks good on svelte hottie model.

Pet Sounds... Revisited

Mojo put out a CD with a bunch of bands covering songs from The Beach Boys' "Pet Sounds." What do you think, too weird? Not to me. I love anything atmospheric/distorted/spacey, and especially when done by the Flaming Lips.
