Friday Fab Four

How cute are these oversized Christmas ornaments? One day I really want to step up my Christmas decor game, but it seems pointless with a toddler — also known as Princess Destructor. I am a sucker for soft pretzels, but I’ve never tried making my own. These look like a good recipe to start with. I wonder if they’ll taste exactly like Auntie Anne’s. I’ve been lucky because I have had great roommates in my life. However, I had one bad roommate and it completely changed my outlook on living. These roommate rules by The New Yorker are too funny […]

The Books I Read in October

But first, here is a photo of H in her adorable Halloween costume! She is holding her incredibly well-crafted candy bag. What can I say? I’m a crafting genius. I think I am in a reading rut! I know how to fix it, though. I have got to stop reading Kindle Unlimited books. There is a time and a place to be cheap, and books are not one of them *sigh*. Okay, here are the books I read in October. Eileen: I read this book because David Sedaris (my favorite person/author in the world) told me to read it. Eileen was also […]

How to Dress Up Flannel

Fall and flannel are like peas and carrots (except peas and carrots are gross, flannel and fall are delightful). Anyway, you probably want to wear your fall flannel as much as possible, but flannel can be hard to dress up. Therefore, our cozy flannel tops are usually delegated to weekend lounge wear. It doesn’t have to be this way! Flannel can be dressy if you style it right. The key is to have fancy details. I chose this gold belt as my focal point and went from there. Skirt: Express (old, but love this) | Shirt: Humble Chic c/o | Bag: Rebecca […]

Friday Fab Four

I got Hannah her first apple cider the other day (which was also her first taste of juice! Double milestones!). Her drinking apple cider made me wonder what the difference between apple cider and apple juice is. Basically, apple cider is ‘raw’ apple juice. The more you knoooowwwww! This might be sacrilege to some, so prepare yourself. My husband bought Oreos the other day and they were not as delicious as I remembered. They tasted like chocolate and chemicals. I soon realized that the chemical taste was the filling. The filling was ruining everything! So I scraped the filling out and replaced […]

Friday Fab Four

You guys, I am all about getting beauty treatments that may seem excessive and moderately vain. What can I say, I love a good before/after moment. But an eyelash perm is taking things too far. Mostly because it appears to be a lot of work for a minimal before/after moment. Watch this video. You’ll see what I mean. I never get tired of people doing the TZ anthem JuJu on that Beat dance. I could watch videos of people doing the dance for days. This week, my favorite JuJu on that Beat video is this one. Have you ever heard of pancake […]

A few important things to take note of this fall

A tall Pumpkin Spice Latte has 11 grams of fat and 39 grams of sugar. It also has 11 grams of protein and 40% of your recommended daily calcium intake. So your basic-ness is sort of healthy if you look at it a certain way. As the weather gets cooler, it’s very important to dress appropriately for the weather. Layers are your friends. You know what isn’t cute? The flu. Here are twenty-five ways to tie a scarf. Leggings will never be pants — but leggings make create tights replacements. Especially the lovely, cheap leggings from Forever 21. They are so […]

Don’t just ‘Put A Blazer On It’

Dressing for a corporate setting can be incredibly difficult. Especially if your work is really conservative and you feel limited to suits *shudder*. I feel lucky because even when I worked in a corporate setting it was never so stuffy that I had to completely compromise my personal style. However, I did fall into fashion ruts a lot. My solution was to wear a black dress with a blazer and heels. That got boring and repetitive really quickly. It also felt like I wasn’t wearing a lot of my clothes — and I have a pretty strict policy about not letting […]
