LINKS … and an announcement

I am now on instagram, my name is novarella in case you’re interested in spying on my day to day.

Here’s what you can expect if you follow me on instagram: cats, dogs, weird things I see, self portraits, tattoo shop stuff and food. Here are some very exciting examples, most notably the sweatpants with a zipper at the ankle. This is my exciting life. Also? My bag matches my hip.

And now for some links!

And now for the announcement. 

I’m taking a break from blogging for a bit and I may or may not come back. I’ve been feeling like it’s a hollow endeavor that’s taking up too much of my time and I am just so bored of it right now.

For now you can find me on instagram, twitter, and maybe tumblr (I might delete that stupid thing too). Links to them are in my sidebar to your left.
And if I don’t come back to this place thank you every single person who invested your time into reading this blog, it really was fun! Keep in touch in all those other ways.
Your pal, nova “rella”.
