Happy Valentine's Day! - Mouse Slippers + Curry Chicken Broccoli

I was very happily surprised when A gave me these Marc by Marc Jacobs Sleeping Mouse Slippers for Valentine's Day because I've been wanting them but couldn't justify spending so much on a pair of slippers. I'm very touched and love how cute they are. They're also super warm and comfy of course. He also crossed a few more things off my wish list - cute fox ring holders and a handy key stand for my iPhone that also has an app that lets you take photos with the clap of your hands. :)
