1. Keira Knightly explains why one should wear a flowerpot on ones head … if one wants. And I agree.
2. Take the conversations of two elderly sisters and have them performed verbatim by two young shlubby guys and you have sweet comic genius.
3. After a year of experimenting, Jenni of GnomeLover has discovered the BEST mascara on the market. Thank you, Jenni!
4. An avocado a day keeps the doctor away.
5. Everyone is buying Marie Kondo’s best selling book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing, but I’m afraid to. What if it makes me want to chuck everything I own and live in a tiny house? I don’t think that’s possible with four cats who hate each other.
6. I’m buying these edgy ballet flats tomorrow so I can pretend to be a cool ballerina.
7. Henri Le Chat Noir meets a dog. Le Horror.
8. Spring skirt
Spring pants! Spring Spring Spring! Yay!
9. Ohhhhh…. the Mad Men series finale trailer is delicious. And so are the clothes!

I have seen so many articles about the Marie Kondo method lately. I have not read the book but from what I have read I don't think it will work for me. I had off yesterday due to the weather so I decided to go through some clothing items and purge. If I am going by what sparks joy I should keep the super cute Anthro tank that I never wear because I need a strapless bra with it and I hate wearing them. It is bright and cheery and makes me happy but I know I will never reach for it. On the other hand I have a bunch of J Crew painter tees that don't spark joy but are comfortable and versatile. I don't know maybe I am missing something as I have not read the book.
Oh my gosh – those are the same reasons that I have not bought the book yet! I loooove to declutter – but like you – I have a lot of things that don't spark joy but that are necessary. The last thing we need is a closet full of sparkly tops that need strapless bras that we won't wear and none of the basics. (Ugh. I cannot stand strapless bras either.)
Also, I heard about how she gives socks emotions and I am not sure I am ready for that.
I do need help with decluttering the paper around the house. How it stacks up the way it does drives me bonkers. I am going to get the book and will let you know if it's worth it!
Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting, Jess!!
Another great list! I don't understand why someone would need to buy a book about decluttering, just throw stuff out and don't accumulate more. I'm pretty sure that book will end up being more clutter in every purchasers already cluttered house. Do I sound like Marcy?
yes. good work.
Thank you for the new Henri!! That was great!!
fyi that's my boyfriend.
You are tres, tres lucky Marcy! You and he seem to share the same cattitude.
He doesn't know yet that he's Marcy's boyfriend. Shhhh… we won't tell her just yet. 😉
I love avocados. Nice pick, Marcy!
And, yay! Mad Men is almost done. Which means I can start watching the series soon. I hate having to wait for new episodes and would rather just binge through an entire series.
OMG! Have you not seen any of them? That is so awesome and I am envious! I hate waiting too. We did that with Breaking Bad.
I checked the book out from the library, it's an easy and entertaining read. So far, it inspired me to get rid of some old papers, ugh I'm with you, I hate paper clutter. She wants you to declutter clothes first because she thinks they are the easiest. (I don't). Yes, she does anthropomorphise, but hey, who am I to say anything …as I respond on a blog that is partially written by cats! No offense, M &P 🙂
Oh my gosh I cannot stop laughing at your last comment! But surely socks are different than cats? Bahahahahaha…. right?!
I'm with you – clothes are much more difficult to get rid of than paper. I mean, I might NEED that ratty tank top I bought at Old Navy eight years ago. It's very useful as an under layer for a sweater I wear once a year. 😉
socks are people too.
Yes, yes, yes! So much to love in this post!
First off – I adored the piece on Keira Knightley. I've always liked her, but this made me adore her that much more. I'm also guilty of the red lipstick trick. For me, it's usually a party dress or a really fancy statement necklace. If I feel like crap, these brighten my day right up. Nail polish, too. I hate applying it, so if I'm wearing it, it's a sign that I needed to do a little something different to occupy my mind.
Also, I get so overwhelmed by our clutter. I really do love most of it, and we've certainly pared down going from a 1600 square foot house to a 550 square foot apartment. But still, does every surface need to be covered? Do I really need so much stuff? I've certainly gotten better, but I know I need to take additional steps. I'm just not sure how. So now I'm wishlisting this book. I need help! lol
Those ballet flats? Why don't you ship me a pair when you order yours? lol They are perfection. Like a perfect ballet slipper, just more substantial. So adorable. And that green lace skirt? Sigh. It's grassy green. It's lace. It's a slinky little sheath. I loooooove. It will not look fabulous on me. I know you will rock it, though! You and your long, long legs and lean, elegant frame! I hope I wasn't tempting you with all of my recent green purchases!
Oh my gosh – green is my favorite. And I love it when spring rolls around and it is everywhere. Although I do remember some years when you could not buy green anywhere. It was the late '90's if I remember correctly.
And yes – you were totally tempting me with all of your green! Especially because the color looks so good on you! My sister is a redhead and she looks great in green too!
I love to get rid of clutter. I get a kind of high off of throwing stuff away. Freddy is the opposite so I need to be respectful of that. I am afraid if I get the book I won't have anything left!
Oh, I can't wait to check out the two guys imitating the elderly sisters and I haven't checked out Henri the cat in a while!
I'm looking forward to Mad Men but the book you mentioned is not for me. I admire people who declutter but I love collecting things too much.
Thanks for sharing all of this good stuff,
I can't wait to hear your thoughts on the Kloons. I think they are hysterical but others aren't as enthralled as I am.
