Spotted

November 14, 2011 · 29 comments

My friends joke that my life is a little a la Gossip Girl. Therefore, you get a GG-style post today.

Spotted: Alyssa breaking it down on the dance floor and promptly called out by reader, Chrissy. At least she had nice things to say.

Was it so easy to spot me because I was doing Alyssa-like things in my natural habitat, Chrissy?

Or maybe she saw the Electronic Media Specialist/multitasker syncing blackberries at the back of the bar.

Don’t comment on the length of my talon fingers. I’ll kill you with them.

Spotted: Chelsey‘s pumpkin protein muffin in a non-vegan form in the LOB kitchen.

I’m not a snooty non-vegan. I just didn’t have any flax on hand, so subbed her flax egg for an egg white. Gotta use what I have on-hand. That’s what interests me in recipes – when I have it all on hand, I’m down to try it.

Chels is a genius, and you need to try this ASAP.

And if you’re a glutton like me, add some light maple syrup to it. It’s like a pumpkin pancake muffin. :-D

Spotted: Some real “neat” clothes by JLo at Kohls. I figured I’d take advantage of their pre-Thanksgiving sale yesterday, and I found some real …winners.

Dear J.Lo, why the bag shirt?

I wish I captured this with my arms outstretched. These are bell sleeves. It’s a great big bag with holes.

I did manage to snag a few items by LC Lauren Conrad.

That would be the Boyfriend Blazer. And apparently, I’m really feelin’ the lazy braid these days.

Spotted: Lowie Turkish Colourful Socks on my doorstep.

This British company makes the cutest winterwear (I’ve got my eye on the mohair lacy knee socks), and they sent me some cute, comfy, cozy (had to do it) socks just in time for the approaching chilly temperatures.

How pretty are all of these colors? The pink has some gold sparkle in it. Me likey.

I’m envisioning some nice Lowie sock snuggling in front of a fireplace. So… who has one they want to lend me to complete this scene since I’m not allowed to use mine?

One of my favorite parts of these babies? They’re nice and tight up top, so they don’t fall down my calves.

Check out Lowie’s website, Facebook, or Twitter for more information. I’m thinking these babies would make pretty cute unique Christmas gifts.

And, of course, to close my Gossip Girl post, I need to end with an…

xoxo, Alyssa

…Now somebody transplant me to the cast of GG and put me in all those clothes.

…Actually, no. Just give me Blake Lively’s life. I’ll just be her instead.

Seriously, I’d take Blake Lively’s GG life! I’m on a pumpkin kick right now so I’m definitely gonna have to try that muffin (with maple syrup of course)! Thanks for the post!

I love the side braid. I think I wear it more days than I acutally wash my hair. (Shhh. I’m secretly a dirtball.)
And I’m not allowed to use my fireplace either! Well we can if we want, we own it but there’s some issue that our house could potentially catch on fire if we use more than one of those starter logs…so there’s that.

Ouch, that shirt is terrible. What is JLo thinking?!
Love that blazer though. They make anyone look instantly professional!

Thanks for your comments on my blog, dawg. And by “last two posts” I hope you were including the rowboat because I really wanted you to read that :) Sometimes I picture your reaction…um, in a non creepy way. haha.

I LOVE HOLIDAY SOCKS.

I onced dated a guy who carried his beer cup around in his mouth like that – aaand I may or may not have knocked it out on purpose just for fun a few times. I’m mean.

Glad you liked the protein muffin! It’s my favorite thing ever at night!

Aaaand I love the Lauren Conrad line!!

Love this post! The side braid is totally where it’s at. And I adore those socks. I need some to help me survive the cold Chicago winter…Or just look cute while slumming around the house. ;)

I’ll be Blair!… then I’d dump the prince and get back with the Bass. Swoon.
…can I still swoon over GG’s bad boy even though I’m married with a kid?
(if the answer is no, keep it to yourself!) ;)
