This is a super-mega Photo Roundup! I had a million and ten photos to post, and cut it down to only a million and three. And, that photo above there, where I’m wearing the totally awesome sunglasses I found on eBay for around $4 (because I almost spent $400 on the designer pair and then totally came to my senses)? I’m not as pissy as I might look, honest.

I had thought about doing one of those awesome Year in Review posts that are all over the place this month, but then I started drafting one up and it was sorta overwhelming. Our first year in New Orleans was pretty amazing, and I can only see it getting better. If you’re curious about my 2012, check out the archives here, or any of the older Photo Roundups!

4. I’m officially obsessed with Lush Bath Bombs.

Seriously, it glitters. The King Cake from Sucré is so delicious that I had one shipped to my mom in Brooklyn!

1. I can’t believe I didn’t buy that amazing purse when I saw it. I would have named him Emilio & he would have been my friend.
2. Perfect French Vanilla soy lattes at Velvet.
3. Prototypes for a fragrance from Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab for Haute Macabre!
4. I got so many holiday cards that I loved from friends, but Nixon’s really was by far the best (and the weirdest).

I’ve been making a smoothie almost every morning, having delicious saldas and juices, and keeping on track, but then, there was a praline ice cream sundae covered in salted caramel, whipped cream, and smoked bacon. Yeah … that happened. So did some burgers, pizza, beer, and some cheese plates. No guilt!

    Your life seems to benefit from a wide variety of interests and hobbies. I should leave my cave and try that for myself at some point.

  2. Francine

    That purse is wild. I think I would have named him Clarence.

  3. Samantha

    Francine, right! It was only $20 at an antique store. It was falling apart a bit, but I totally regret not getting it.

  4. jtrrrash

    love the gloomy and moody!
