Hello November: October Faves & Raves

Fall has changed me for the better this year and I am hoping that as the new year approaches I can learn more about myself and improve in the coming months. Some things may stay the same but, many things … Continue reading

Summer Essentials 2014

Happy Monday, all! As I’ve hinted at in other posts, these last few months especially, I have been very emotional and not really prone to blogging as much as I’d like. With the move to a new house (yes, we … Continue reading

Lippie Splurge

My husband recently gave a speech and highlighted within it that most people tend to buy things when they’re anxious. I’m even like that, to an extent. Sometimes more than others.

It seems like, to me, that, every month, the week before Aunt Flo comes to visit, I have a psychotic (probably unreasonably real) pregnancy scare. You know, the whole, “Oh my gah, I might be pregnant!” feeling, right? Most women have had it. During that time, I tend to buy things (mostly makeup) in hopes of…well, I don’t exactly know. It’s not like the prettier I make myself the less pregnant I would be but, nevertheless, it’s a legitimate concern I’d say; especially, since I am currently unable to take any form of hormonal birth control.

Anyway, I was in Target on Thursday getting some baby needs (diapers, teething crackers…etc) for our 7 month old and ended up with not only my necessity items but, 4 different lip colors I felt like I couldn’t live without. Plus, the words “new” and “sale” in the same aisle is a dangerous duo for any female.

Below, I’ve linked, labeled, and swatched (hand & lips) the purchases I made. Enjoy 🙂

OOTD: Flight of Fashion

Caught our flight to NYC this morning and… WE MADE IT! Such a nice feeling to be back in this city! ❤️ There is something so artistic and independent about the spirit of this place…

Wanted to share with you guys my outfit of the day. I think I made a good choice…

The cell phone photo isn’t the best and airport lighting is unflattering but, I am comfortable– especially for the rainy weather we encountered upon arrival.

Sweater- Target, $22
Jeans- Gap, $40
Scarf- Charlotte Russe, $5 (on sale)
Suede Boots- Delia*s, (old)

Hope you all are having a fantastic Monday!

#plaidurday, the boyfriend way

Here we go… another crazy traditon. Plaidurday. I had not heard about this until I was on instagram and noticed the #plaidurday hashtag. Of course, I immediately looked it up and it led me to the official plaidurday website, where … Continue reading
