Divided by Two Tuesday.

It’s Tuesday, Tuesday, gotta get down on Tuesday. Just kidding. I apologize for my Rebecca Black Friday reference and for all of you who were reminded about such an annoying, yet catchy song. Now that I have managed to pollute your brain for the rest of the day, let’s carry on with the intended post. It’s Tuesday and you know what that means! Ten Things Tuesday! However, instead of posting a list of ten things, I decided to cut it in half (divided by two) and include pictures and descriptions. But let’s be honest here, I’m just being quite lazy.

In case you haven’t noticed, I wear my watch virtually everyday with every outfit I have posted. Although I love the classic appearance of an analog watch, I must confess that as an individual that has grown up in the digital age, it does take me a good amount of time to give you the time.

The Daybook. I’m an avid reader of this smiling young lady. Although I don’t know her personally, I read her blog on a daily basis along with thousands of other online readers. Her fashion sense is impeccable and her newly born baby is probably the most adorable thing you will ever see on a fashion blog.

Of all the cupcakes in the world, my favorite would have to be the Red Velvet Cupcake. It is the perfect amount of sweetness without the sugar hangover afterwards. As a chocoholic, I might just prefer this cupcake a little bit more than your simple chocolate cupcake. And of course, it does look quite sophisticated when photographed.

My favorite store. Okay guys, I’m a college student and I’m basically broke compared to everyone else that shops at this store, but bear with me here. I’m an avid shopper of their sale section, especially during the holiday rush when there’s usually an additional percentage off the already reduced merchandise. Sometimes when I find myself running short in the financial department, I browse through their catalog for inspiration and put together my own cheaper version of their outfits with pieces I already own.

I’ve been obsessing over this set of Face Stockholm nail polish purchased via J.Crew. I bought it on sale for $6.99 + an additional 30% off. Great bargain for nail polish, right? The bright pink you see in the middle is the color my toes are sporting and the nude color on the right currently sits on my fingers. I haven’t figured out when I’ll transition to the burgundy merlot color yet, but I’ll get there when I get there.


Ten Things Tuesday – second edition.

With all the bustle of holidays and busy work weeks, I almost forgot today was Tuesday. And y’all know what that means: Ten Things Tuesday! In this second edition, I will reveal to you one of my guilty pleasures – dressing up for no apparent reason and documenting how proud I am about my outfit.

Exhibit A:

J.Crew skirt & shirt, Gap scarf, Express tights, Bandolino boots, Old Navy bag, Lucky Brand watch and a J.Crew plaid headband (not shown).

Anyways, back to the original intention of this post: the ten things that make me happy.

1. Sifting through magazines to find outfit inspiration
2. Buying the look for less/on sale
3. Dressing up for no reason
4. Pretty PJ bottoms
5. Simple, sophisticated and timeless accessories
6. Writing for fun
7. Making lists and checking it twice – You’re not the only one Santa
8. Conservative nail polish colors
9. Reading my favorite blogs
10. Pinterest

Have a nice day y’all!

Ten Things Tuesdays.

I keep telling myself I need to update my blog more often now that I actually have time to post updates. However, I haven’t been as consistent as I promised in a previous post. Tomorrow is my first day off from work in about a week and will finally get to bake some amazingly photogenic cupcakes. In order to keep all you wonderful readers amused until I post the fabulous pictures of the cupcakes I am going to bake tomorrow, I present to you: Ten Things Tuesday – chapter one, in which I inform y’all about ten things that make me happy.

1. Nutella sandwiches on whole grain wheat bread
2. Discovering new things about my Mac
3. Driving around in my car
4. Drinking coffee or tea on a rainy day
5. Staying in PJs on a lazy Sunday while watching my favorite shows
6. Proving people wrong when they believe I will fail

7. Stationary, planners and office supplies
8. Reading for fun
9. Tight hugs
10. Kisses on the forehead
