The College Prepster

Anyone else heard of the College Prepster? Well please, meet Carly. I started following her blog a little over a year ago, about the same time I started getting into all of this blogging business myself. She’s quite adorable and describes herself aptly as a Type A, workaholic. What’s not to like?

She lives in New York in a little apartment on her own and it sounds like this twenty-something is living the dream. Hard working, making it in the Big Apple, and not ashamed to tout her love of J Crew and Kate Spade. I did have to laugh at one of her posts where she mentioned she loved the look of Lululemon, but could simply not swallow the price of workout wear. I felt the same way when I wandered into the official Kate Spade store on our trip overseas, and realized the satchel I was eyeing up was on the high end of the three hundred range. I confess, I did pay that for a pair of jeans once (William Rast)…but that was a long time ago. Priorities, ladies. We all have them.

I’ve been tucked in at home sick the last few days, compliments of some bug Frank picked up last week. He kicked it in 24 hours…I’ve been taking lengthy naps since Monday trying to catch up. We have a big weekend ahead of us and company coming in droves starting tomorrow. I need to get back on my A-game. Good thing I have my trusty Lulu leggings to keep me comfy while I plod around the house, alternately sneezing, painting and napping.
