Cooler Weather Uniform - 10/24/14

When the weather gets cooler, I pretty much live in my black turtlenecks, which is a bit ironic considering I used to give my mom so much crap for her drawer o'turtlenecks.  At least I don't wear seasonally themed ones with cutesy patterns on them. :)


I think I need to buy a tablet now...

...because this is the coolest thing ever.  I am a child of the 80s/90s, and trapper keepers were a big deal.  Big deal.  And they're back!  For your tablet that is, not your notepad.

 

Unfortunately, I went with a much more expensive fancy laptop that can pretend to be a tablet, and it's too big to fit, but I'm tempted to get a tablet now. :)  Or maybe I'll just buy one of these for John's tablet, and that way at least one of us in the family can relive our childhood.  Or maybe I'll just find a real trapper keeper, and go all retro.

Adding in something new

I've decided it's too annoying to keep two blogs up and running, so I'm going to add in some other topics to this blog.  I love trying new things and samples, so maybe a year and a half ago I subscribed to Birch Box, which if you haven't heard of it is a monthly service where you pay $10 and then send you a box every month with random goodies in the health and beauty category.  I did that for a year or so, but it got a bit repetitive, and I mostly just liked the boxes the things came in.  I decided to switch it up and try a different service, since there are several now.  I'm using Ipsy, which is basically the same thing, but I find their website confusing.  Instead of a box though, the monthly samples come in a different zipper pouch every month, and we all know how I feel about bags (I love them, in case you didn't know).


I haven't tried out much from this month's bag (I'm always behind), but I did take this nice little hand cream into work today, and I love it.  Mostly because it's an adorable tube and it makes me happy to look at it, but it also works really well.  It's a little watery, but soaks in immediately and doesn't have a strong smell (important if you want to be a considerate work colleague).  Be forewarned though, it's not cheap.  I received the full size version in my bag, but it's small, and it's $7.

Pulling out a sweater dress 10/23/14

Dresses are easy.  Sweater dresses are easy and comfy, my favorite way to get dressed in the morning.

Pink! - 10/22/14

I figured that since I wanted to be more polished and dressed up, I should probably wear dressier clothes. :)

Tan - 10/21/14

My first outfit choice this morning didn't work out, so this is outfit #2, thrown together a bit.  I'm trying desperately to like this sweater, as it is super comfortable, but I just don't know that I can get behind how over-sized it is.  I do like it better with a collared shirt under it as opposed to a tank or tee though.

 

Resurfacing - 10/20/14

Sorry for the extended absence, but I am finally getting over being sick, and have enough energy to do a blog post. :)  I eased back into real life with a simple, comfortable outfit.
