Our carbon monoxide alarm went off at 4 am on Monday morning. ¬†This was the first time the alarm had gone off (we’ve had the CO units for about 2 years), and our digital readout was showing ~250 ppm (bad!). ¬†Fortunately,¬†the alarm did it’s job & we quickly left the house (although not before opening most of the doors and windows – which, in retrospect, we shouldn’t have spent time doing). ¬†The local fire department came to investigate & a few hours later we were allowed back inside. ¬†Our wood stove was the likely source of the carbon monoxide & we have negative house pressure issues that are not helping the situation. ¬†An HVAC tech is coming by today to look at the problems & hopefully propose a solution. ¬†Even though this ended well for us, I can’t stress the importance of a CO alarm. ¬†¬†If we did not have a functioning alarm, we all would have continued to sleep through the rising CO levels (very dangerous!).


Fall {Faux} Fur

When a representative from Ricki’s asked me if I would like to test drive¬†a few pieces from their fall collection, I quickly jumped at the opportunity to pick out a new autumn¬†look. ¬†After a full-store (and website!) browse, along with¬†helpful recommendations from the sales staff, I decided on a¬†vest/tunic/leggings ¬†look.¬†¬†This is a slight departure from my everyday style because at the moment, my leggings tend to be reserved for work-out and lounge attire (this is a ridiculous¬†mental block as I have no problem wearing slim-fit pants, which are essentially just thicker leggings…).

Vest: ¬†c/o Ricki’s¬†¬†{I have actually been wanting a nice faux fur vest for a few seasons now, but I was unable to find something at a decent price point that didn’t look inherently cheap. ¬†This vest is incredibly soft¬†and is of much better quality than the other options I considered in the past}
Blouse: ¬†c/o Ricki’s
Leggings: ¬†c/o Ricki’s¬† {they keep their shape quite well!}
Necklace: ¬†c/o Ricki’s
Bracelets: ¬†both¬†c/o Ricki’s (here and here)
Purse:  Le Chateau {old}
Boots:  Enzo Angiolini {simliar}
Sunglasses:  Aldo

PS: I’m giving away a $50 gift card to Ricki’s – check back early next week for details!
