Boudoir

by Emily Petkus


I've suddenly become consumed with actually participating in the free online courses I signed up for on Coursera - maybe because I fear working in the entertainment industry has had detrimental effects on my lovely neocortex. It's about time I sharpened up my neural circuits anyway.

And yes, I have also been consumed with my kittehs as well, which brings about an unfortunate and petty First World dilemma for a cat lady like myself: There is not enough memory available on my antediluvian iPhone to store both my cat photos and outfit selfies. We all know what takes priority...meow.

Since we are on the topic of cats, here are a few pictures Atticus forced me to snap (he's a camera whore) of him gracefully sleeping away in the updated boudoir. He is very pleased with the final grey and yellow palette, as it complements his lustrous silver-frosted fur. 

 

Loloi White Shag Rug from Gilt.com (originally  $100, got it for $55).

Yellow headboard decal from Blik (Use promo code "shareblik" for 10% off your order).

Yellow throw from JC Penny (it was on sale for $30 when I bought it mwahaha).  

Curtains from Ikea, curtain ties from Bed Bath & Beyond

Brandy Melville

by Emily Petkus


In a valiant effort to not have my only weekly post consist of shoddy selfies taken in the mirror each morning, I'm going to try out this new series I'd like to call "Emily's  latest shopping squandering displayed in a seemingly nonchalant arrangement on her kitty-littered hardwood floor." (I cannot Swiffer enough. The kitty litter is eternal.)

As I mentioned in a previous post, I did indeed end up in a Brandy Melville during the great heatwave of 2013. I joked with the cashier I was there to reap the benefits of their skimpy clothes to cope with said weather, but alas, the joke went right over her pretty little glucose-deprived (I mean really, she was a very well dressed skeleton) head. Anyway, here's what I bought. And here's what happens when you attempt to accomplish anything aesthetically pleasing when you do not live in the sterile, catless, bubble of  annoying perfection so many other bloggers seem to inhabit.

From the top going clockwise: Abrielle tankJacqueline tank, Giselle topAarika pantsMylie tank. I also bought this dress in white, but gravity and Murphey's law were all like "Fuck you Emily, you cannot possess a white dress and expect it to go unscatched," and willed my concealer to topple down the front of the dress, forever staining it. So yeah, I'm not upset about that or anything. I didn't need that money anyways, universe.

Outfit Roundup

by Emily Petkus


Dressing oneself becomes a very complex and exhausting process when one is running on the minimum hours of sleep required to sustain basic motor functions (as demonstrated by the blurriness in some of these photos, even capturing a simple selfie was as daunting a task as winning the Hunger Games). Thank you peripheral nervous system for inspiring this collection of Man Repeller, lazy chic, oh-my-gawd-this-will-transition-so-easily-into-pajamas-when-I-come-home-and-collapse-in-a-fit-of-fatigue outfits.

Inigo Meowtoya

by Emily Petkus


Atticus, Steven and I have welcomed a lovely new addition to the family: a carnivorous ball of allergy-inducing fluff we have dubbed Inigo Meowtoya. (If you don't understand that pop culture reference, you are no longer of consequence to me.)

This rambunctious little creature was found inhabiting a dinky shed. Luckily, he will now live out his nine lives surrounded by my luxurious collection of Jeffrey Campbell shoes and Whole Foods turkey.

Unfortunately for me, he is only about six weeks old, and thus wakes me up about every 2-3 hours to shovel kitten formula down his throat (gently, of course). But who needs sleep when you have a goddamn kitten? This also begs the question, how on earth do people do this with human babies? Alright, I'll halt this insomnia-induced tangent before it begins. Happy Shoesday. Go adopt an animal ya jerks.
