the power of persuasion.

I am a such sucker for good advertising. And not so good advertising. basically any kind of advertising. And when I say advertising I of course mean food advertising. (That should go without say by now shouldn't it?) If I so much as see a remotely delicious looking advertisement, my mind starts shouting "GET IN MY BELLY".

Which is why last night I came home with a bag of "hearty delicious" hamburger buns and a box of donuts holes, that I neither planned, or needed, and then proceeded to Cafe Rio for a delicious sweet pork burrito.

Goal for next week: avoid food advertisements of any kind. My husband and wallet will be very grateful.


This top & jeans are both "challenge pieces" for me. I hadn't worn the top since purchase, because it was too big, but I actually love it belted and worn casually with these jeans! So are they "keepers" or should I "take out the trash?"

Haha I'm such a sucker for ads too- anything in a pretty box ends up in my shopping cart. Whoops!
Love the colour on you, it's so pretty! Definitely a belted keeper! xx

The jeans look great, and the colour of the top is fantastic! Keep, keep, keep.

I like the top a lot. Is the embellishment at the neck one of those things that turns into a wreck after you wash it? All wrinkly and horrifying? I often shy away from items I find otherwise lovely for such a reason.

I like this top! You look good in these items...I say keep! You can also try wearing this top tucked into a pencil skirt. I think it would look cute too! And you rock the red lipstick! It suits you so well! You remind me of those 50s beauties :)

The jeans are cute, look like they fit well. I'm not in love with the top though. You have so many cute things, I don't think your closet would miss it.
