Houseplants, dogs, and Kate Spade

My parents splurged $50 on a houseplant (from IKEA), and you know what they said in their defence? They compared it to me wanting a dog.Β How does that even work?! We don’t even own a dog. That argument only works if we had a dog, but we don’t… Wait, does this mean they’re OK with me getting a dog now?!

Also, I bought a $250+ Kate Spade bag a couple months ago, I’ve only brought it out three times, and there’s already a horrendous blue jean dye transfer stain on it. I’ve thrown the Kate Spade leather cleaner on it, and it has done nothing. Shall I just never use this bag with jeans ever again or something?! I can’t believe I would have spent $250+ on a bag and not be able to wear jeans with it. Or maybe this just means I need to invest in properly expensive Armani Exchange jeans, ugh.

It seems like I’m a big fan of the “?!” exclamation marks today. I shall justify this by sharing this relevant tweet by Chris Evans.

Did you know that the Google Pixel camera has a facial retouch feature built in right in its app?! Amazing. Cover up my blackheads please. #Fivehead

  • Went to the @britishlibrary's Harry Potter exhibit today! Super cool to see some of the original manuscripts written by J. K. Rowling. πŸ“– Did you know that "Fudge" was originally written as a Muggle, and he was to appear in the very first chapter of the entire series? Or that in the second book, Harry and Ron were supposed to crash into the lake and then be rescued by English-speaking merpeople? The coolest thing though, was seeing the full handwritten plan of "Order of the Phoenix" all laid out in four sheets of paper, detailing how each chapter would contribute to the overall prophecy, and how minor characters would show up in the book (e.g. Ginny, Cho, Hagrid, the Order, and Dumbledore's Army). This plan was written way before the first book was even published! J. K. Rowling is a genius! 😍 #BLHarryPotter
