Jeggings and Top 2 Tuesday!

Good Tuesday mornin' to ya! I'll just get right into it...

Yesterday I bought Jeggings at the Targ (which is where I always turn for fashion trends I'm not totally sold on yet). Jeggings are stretchy/cottony leggings made to look like denim. It sounds really bizarre, I'm aware.

I had been considering the pros and cons for weeks. (Honestly, I've thought way too much about this.) I love my stretchy fat pants, but hate looking like a slob.  I like a tailored-looking pant, but hate the discomfort of my muffing top pouring out of it. These are all problems. Seemingly, the Jegging is the perfect solution, but lets just be honest: the thought of a super stretchy jeans is sort of Jenny-from-the-Block-ish:

I'm not denying my obvious street cred, but this just isn't my look.

So, to satisfy my curiosity, I settled on these:

Buy these HERE
The photos don't really do them justice. They're black and look like skinny jeans (including button, fly, and pockets) but feel like comfy, sweet, cozy leggings. So far I'm on comfy-pant cloud 9. You better believe I'm feeling extra cozy on this chilly morning. I'm not completely committed because I'm worried these are a gateway to all fat pants all the time, but so far, they're totally fab. Highly recommend.

Now for Top 2 Tuesday. I haven't done this one in a while, but I like the topic today:

Top 2 Cleaning and Organization Tips!

1. Lists
This is my office to-do list from yesterday. Not only do lists help you remember and prioritize things, the sense of accomplishment when you get to cross something off is second to none. I love crossing things off....maybe a little too much. I keep lists for groceries, weekend errands, Christmas shopping, general life goals...everything. I learned this trick from my mother, she knows all the good stuff.

2. Swiffer
Admittedly, I rarely use the Swiffer cloths for their intended purpose: cleaning the floor. These little cloth babies are great for cleaning EVERYTHING. For some reason dust accumulates in my apartment like it's a freaking antique store. I have no idea why. I find myself dusting alot. The cloths are great for shelves, knick knacks, picture frames, the top of door frames, tv/computer screens and even the fan blades! I recently cleaned the top of the ceiling fan blades and it was completely atrocious up there. I have no idea why they were so disgusting, but it grosses me out even more when I consider that the thing was slinging it's accumulation on me all night while I sleep under it. Sick. No worries, Swiffer cloth to the rescue! These things are awesome.

I'm not an extremely clean person per se, but there are a few things I do believe in. Swiffer dusting is definitely one of them.

Happy Tuesday friends!
