I’m in love with Tina Fey’s new Netflix show “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.” For those of you who haven’t seen or heard of the show, here is a super brief synopsis provided by Google:
Rescued after 15 years in a cult, Kimmy Schmidt decides to reclaim her life by venturing to New York, where she experiences everyday life with wide-eyed enthusiasm.
If you’ve watched it yourself, you know that there’s so much more to “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” than just this. The show is hysterical, the characters are quirky and lovable, and you really just need to go watch it right now. The most lovable of all the characters is leading lady Ellie Kemper’s Kimmy Schmidt. She is my spirit animal. Aside from her chipper personality, I became enthralled with (and incredibly jealous of) her amazing fashion sense. Because she was kidnapped in 8th grade and kept underground in a bunker for 15 years (!), all of her vibrant clothing choices are unapologetically youthful and with a hint of a throwback.
You probably noticed that I’ve been redesigning my blog daily over the past week or so. It was time for a visual upgrade. I’m still playing around with it and am not 100% satisfied with the current look (and probably will never be), so bear with me through The Cheerful Times’ identity crisis! In the meantime, please enjoy the festive animated snowfall that WordPress.com has cutely granted my blog until early January.
It’s with my critical eye that I present to you my new series: Pretty Picks!
There’s something so calming, pleasing and fulfilling about looking at good design. It makes me want to be a better person. “Good design” of course is completely relative — that’s why there are so many different styles out there!
I want to catalog some of my favorites, from a variety of categories, into digestible little posts.
So today I’m kicking off the series with my 5 Kitchen Crushes!
