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!
