Helena from A DIARY OF LOVELY was sweet enough to feature me on her blog!  It is a weekly series she has called “My Stuff”. It’s really just the inside scoop on everything I love! I thought i’d post the feature here on my blog as well. Thanks again Helena! You’re blog is inspiring!

    I could watch 500 days of Summer over and over as well. I dream of California, sixties clothing and angsty love. Unfortunately, I live in Montreal, am in love with my gothic inspired clothes and am not angsty because I love my hubby and daughters. Love your blog Kelli and you are an inspiration yourself.
