Five things I want to buy right now

1. This book by Damien Echols. I enjoy reading memoirs and the less they are like my own life, the better.

2. A Bazinga lunchbox for my Big Bang Theory-loving Dad. Not sure what he’d do with it but still! 3. These Stuart Weitzman boots. I’d kick so much a$$ wearing them.
