Shop update & just some fun stuff!

Heeeeeeey-lo my little blog friends!

I hope everyone had a safe and fun 4th of July. I dodged a bunch of fireworks- it was AWESOME (minus getting shot in the leg, ha- and yes, I'm like a 10 year old boy who's not being watched by his mother when it comes to fireworks).

So, it kind of blows (please excuse my language) because I barely get wi-fi signal OR phone reception in my apartment. I have an iPhone and well, it's my life. It's weird walking around my place without it attached to my hand, so I keep it against the window where I find the best signal. I JUST NOW found the best spot where my internet works- on the kitchen counter. I mean, it's fine but I have netflix and I REALLY JUST WANT TO WATCH it in my room. My previous post was typed up outside but Chicago has been scorching, disgusting hot outside and I honestly cant sit out there. I plan on getting a signal booster once I have a day to breathe from my new job.

Besides all that jazz... our 3rd roommate moved in. We had an amazing dinner party with a bunch of girls the other night where my friend Lindsey cooked her butt off. We had grilled steak that was marinated overnight, jalapenos stuffed with chorizo and cheese, jalapenos stuffed with goat cheese with basil on top... then the same thing but with bacon wrapped around it, pesto tortellini pasta, fresh salad with awesome smoked cheddar, mushroom caps with fresh mozzarella+tomato+basil, and then a strawberry rhubarb pie. It was
SO good. Here's a cellphone picture of it. I couldn't take any better pictures because I was too busy stuffing my face.

A few nights ago, me and some of my best gal friends went out to this place called Beauty Bar. It's a bar with a sparkly glittery dance floor but they also give you manicures for $10. My favorite thing about this place is that they have a photobooth!! We were all over that. I really do have some of the best girl friends a girl can ask for.

Last thing I wanna tell you guys about is.... drum rolls please...

shop update!
It's just a baby update. I put in a few wallets and I have some cup cozies to add this week too. I've been trying to sew as much as I can but working, maintaining my apartment, and entertaining myself has been difficult for me to juggle because I'm so excited about my new life! Anyway... here they are.

Four new wallets. Three being Matroyska wallets because everyone loves those...and the 2nd one in the picture is made from this fabulous cotton vintage fabric that Becky sent me. I've been meaning to use all the fabric she sent me a few months ago (and to send her something- don't worry Becky I haven't forgotten though it may seem I did).

Then I added two owl cup cozies because I was feeling owl-ish that day. ;)

Check them out here! They're in the appropriate sections in my shop.
And the last last things: For the rest of July, Bird Trouble is doing 10% off! We will refund you via your paypal. WOOP!
