Hey, Hipster! There's 10 days until Christmas.

Sorry for the late post today! I actually ran a red light this morning and screamed "Aye Chi Wah Wah" on the way to the office, so needless to say I've been a little busy/distracted/going totally insane the past few days. Lots of new exciting things happening here on LTBL, including some new sponsorship opportunities starting next week! Over the weekend I still have some great giveaways planned for you guys, so stay tuned!

The winner of yesterday's necklace set and clutch is......

CONGRATS TO LAUREN WILLIAMS!! please email me and we'll chat. We can meet up for a coffee and I'll give you your prize, or I can give it to ya at church Sunday! So exciting!!!

Something that I honestly haven't thought about before is the gift of art. There are some seriously talented folks out there that deserve some love! If you can, pick up a piece of art from one of your local galleries this Christmas and share it with a loved one---like I am with you today! Remember, all hipsters love art!

Today's find is your choice of two lovely prints from S. Gregg Gallery here in Cape Girardeau. Unfortunately, S. Gregg Gallery is closing at the end of this month. This, in my opinion, is a huge loss for the City of Cape Girardeau! If you can, please stop by and give S. Gregg Gallery some love before they close. Also check out some of their frame work and remaining prints that are all marked down 40%.

There are two pieces to choose from, one is this print of the downtown area in Cape Girardeau in 1871. LOVE this print. It symbolizes the beginnings of our humble town--a time that needs to be remembered. I actually picked up an extra one of these for our home. I plan to hang it in a hallway or in the front entryway.

Here's a little close up of the print.

The other is this HUGE Alice and Wonderland poster promoting the author, Lewis Carrol's centennial anniversary of the book. This mystical print came out in 1990, so it's getting pretty old! I personally think this would look lovely framed in either a walk in closet or a guest bathroom. If I had a daughter I think it would make great nursery room art too!

I thought that local friends would probably love the Cape Girardeau print, and friends from far away might get a kick out of Alice, but it's your choice which you would prefer! Each print is worth $20 each! To win, simply comment below which print you would like! Contest closes at midnight and I'll announce the winner tomorrow.

Today's look is for all you hipsters out there. When I think hipster, I think laid back, free spirited college kid.

Fur Vest: AE. Striped Hoodie: Target. Navy Tee: Gap. Straight Leg Jeans: Big Star via The Buckle. Mocs: Old, bought in Colorado.
 I'm comfy today and ready for a busy weekend!

This is my last weekend to shop before Christmas....eeeeek I'm so behind! We have a fancy dinner party this Saturday night and I'm teaching in the two year old class Sunday morning at Church....phew busy weekend! I still have more giveaways in store so stay tuned!


  1. Leslie! Just found your blog (via comment) and I love it! I love that you’re a freelancer for your local paper- I’m a journalism school grad! And a new mom, it melted my heart that you said your son is your best buddy! Just started following you. Stop by and check out my holiday giving guide and follow back if you feel compelled☺ XO

    Real budget, real busy, real body fashion:

  2. Hey. I like the cape print but I also like the Alice in wonderland print cause it brings back memories of my days in his community theater days. Both ae lovely.


  3. While I see merit for hanging both prints, I am going to pick the Alice in Wonderland print simply because it has color.
