My phone contract was up this month so I was able to upgrade my phone because we all know I can’t afford to buy one without the cost spread across the contract duration.

When I get a new upgrade, the kids get a “new” upgrade aka My oldest gets my old phone and my youngest gets her old phone.

Long story short, it came with the regular three free months of AppleTV which I usually don’t subscribe to but will for a free trial, and I just watched Slow Horses and it was fantastic.

Two new purchases this week, one is the shirt dress I bought from COS the other day when I tried some of the sale stuff on, which I also wore today and you can see here.

I like it better as a shirt, plus it has pockets.

The other item was the shirt that I included in yesterday’s Boho Chic capsule wardrobe (it’s not available in the US yet). It wasn’t in the store so I had to order it online, which unfortunately means I might have to pay duties and that sucks.

I probably should have waited to see if it came in because while I was in they were merchandising the front area and the theme of the new stock looked like it would fit with the shirt.

But patience isn’t something that I am good at.
