procrastination. and a giveaway!


It's no secret that I'm a bit of a procrastinator.
It took me years to commit to a cell phone.
It took me decades to commit to a career path.
I think it's taken me even longer to commit to this blog.

So, you know, the fact that I've been a bit slow about hopping aboard the online shopping train should come as no surprise.
But hop on I have,
because it turns out
(wait for it...)
that you can actually find ANYTHING you could ever want online.

I mean, seriously.
You want helium balloons? You got it.
You want twenty-two year old bottles of brandy? Easy.
You want matching, cushy counter stools for your new home?

It's a whole new world.
And I'm kind of digging it.
Plus, it makes for fantastic procrastination.
(Need evidence? I've spent the past 47 minutes perusing this store and this store, instead of doing any resemblance of homework.)

So, to celebrate this new found love of online shopping,
as well as my avid procrastination,
I feel that a giveaway is in order.

You, my wonderfully kind readers, are ever deserving of a little something to brighten your day,
and the generous folks at have offered to provide just that.

in honor of my love of all things red
and all things coffee,
you have a chance to win this:

A stinkin' awesome
Bodum french press that would be absolutely perfect sitting on any kitchen counter. I adore it. And in fact, I'm insanely jealous of whoever wins this.
Red + french press?
I think my world was just rocked.

Good luck!

(And now, well, I'm off to have a cup of coffee...)

You're kidding, right? We're supposed to pick favorites?! Maybe that's why I haven't jumped on the bandwagon just yet--I'd want to buy everything and never get off of it!

keila said... is a really cool site. I have been shopping for a firepit for over a year now, but there are so many cool, different ones out there, I just can't decide which one to get for our patio. This site has several cool ones on there. I just need to make a decision so I can actually get one and start enjoying it! Thanks for the source.

I really need the mermaid fountain and a shed for the backyard, but my homeowner's association won't let me have one because our backyards are open and everyone can see (no fencing), so they forbid sheds.
The coffee press is gorgeous and chic!
