i've posted about my current favorites in the past, but i'm thinking of revamping this kind of post to go beyond just beauty and fashion (think: recent book(s) i read, recipes i tried, things that made me laugh, what i'm looking forward to... you get the gist of it!).
so let's see how this goes! i'm still trying to figure out what i want to post here. i don't want to do too many product collage posts, mostly because i don't enjoy doing them very much (plus, there are so many bloggers out there that create beautiful collages!). hopefully the ideas will start flowing soon and i'll be able to come up with a schedule!
i don't think i would make it through the winter without these boots and this coat. no other boots keep my feet as warm as these do (my feet FREEZE whenever i wear my bean boots). i was also in need of a new puffy winter coat. i scooped this one up after christmas on sale and i love it. it's not too bulky and it's seriously warm!
i'm doing my best to pack a lunch for work 4 days a week. i'm trying to be a bit more conscious of how i spend my money; plus, it makes fridays all the more special! i prepare my lunches on sunday so i don't even have to think about it during the week. last week, i made rice bowls (that were pretty fantastic if i do say so myself). i covered the rice in a cilantro vinaigrette (AMAZING), made some seasoned sweet potatoes, and topped it off with lettuce, tomato, peppers, black beans, and corn.
estée lalonde is one of my favorite youtubers and i just finished her book that she published last fall. i really love her style and the products she recommends. i always feel instantly relaxed whenever i watch one of her videos. the setup, music selection, editing–it's a really soothing and enjoyable experience! i'd say her book is a perfect extension of her videos and blog.
shape of you by ed sheeran. love it. but i hope it doesn't turn into closer by the chainsmokers where every radio station plays it non-stop and you can't escape it 🙈
i've been all about elizabeth and james' nirvana black perfume this month. it's woodsy and sweet, making it the perfect winter scent.
something that made me laugh
literally every photo of george w. bush struggling with his poncho at the inauguration.
something to look forward to
spring! wearing sweaters every day is great in october, november, and december. however, it's redundant and dull in january, february, and march. am i right, or am i right?
