Here’s a fun fact. The building behind me is the tomb of Ulysses S. Grant, American Civil War General and 18th President of the United States. Who’da thunk ole Grant would be buried in a gigantic tomb in Harlem? Well he was, and the building is very beautiful. I highly recommend that you visit it if you are ever in town.
In other news, it was raining during these photos so my hair isn’t looking it’s best. Sorry, not sorry.

I feel like flower crowns are having a bit of a moment. I have seen them crop up on some of my favorite e-retailers, and I’ve spotted a few girls wearing them on the street. Flower crowns are undeniably fun, so I was so thrilled when Monique Martin of Harvested by Monique offered to make me one of her custom flower crowns. Monique only makes custom flower crowns which is great because you get exactly what you want. Wanna know the best part? Most of her crowns are under $20. This is a no brainer. Get yoself one! Email Monique at: firstname.lastname@example.org.

I have a love-hate relationship with animal prints. Sometimes I love them, but other times I think they are basically the worst. This usually makes for fun “blog self-reflection days” which happen when I look back on my blog to see what I can get away with re-wearing. Sometimes, if an animal print outfit catches me on the wrong day, I will be all like, “ewww what is that outfit?! I look like a polyester cat” (because animal print stuff is almost always made from polyester). Then I am all like, I am never wearing that top/skirt/shoes/belt/bracelet/etc. again!
But by the time I make it to my closet to dispose of the offending item, I like animal print again. Thus the cycle repeats.
Good story, right?

Well, BloomNation sent me the flowers above last week and basically made my life. BloomNation has partnerships with some of the top florists in the country to get you fresh flowers fast.
I think my favorite part about BloomNation is that you can see the actual arrangements the florist designed as opposed to seeing stock images and having NO IDEA what you’re actually sending someone. What you see in the photo is what gets delivered. Yay!
Okay, now get to ordering. I have a special coupon code for you and everything! Get 20% off your Mother’s Day flowers using the code: Bloom20.
Dear Critter Sweaters,
Thank you. You have carried me through Fall and Winter beautifully (and fashionably). But the weather is getting warmer and now I must retire you for the season. But don’t fret, I will hang you on cedar hangers and bring you back out again in November.
Okay, see you soon, critter sweater friends!
