day thirty four.

Today was a simple day, full of lounging and wedding planning.  Let’s just call it like it is, I was kind of a bum today and forgot to take a picture.  But I can’t let you down, so here’s photo of my sweet puppy and some homemade chai tea.  Took it on instagram this morning, and figured it was worthy enough to be on my 100 days project.  Have a great night, all!


day twenty eight.

It was one of those cozy fall days where all I wanted to do was cuddle up in my bed with a good book and a thick sweatshirt.  Well, I’m not cuddled up in bed but I did read for a bit and I’m wearing the perfect sweatshirt.  Late nights and not as much sleep as I’d prefer are the prices I have to pay for having a busy life lately..

Since today seemed so cozy, I decided to share the comfort with you all, just in case you aren’t feeling the fall fuzzies yet.  Below are a few things that make me feel like dropping everything I’m doing just to sit down and relax for once.

1.  Candles.  I love the smell; how you can close your eyes and instantly feel like plopping down on the couch with a big blanket with the smell of ‘pumpkin harvest’ or ‘winter evergreen.’

2. Slippers.  If you don’t have a pair, go this instant and buy some.  Your life will never feel more relaxed, I promise.

3. Unmade beds.  (unless you don’t know whose bed it is..that’s just weird. And slobby)  I know beds with the covers pulled up nice and pillows placed in perfect order are fantastic as a welcoming factor, but when a bed is unmade, it’s just calling for you to lay down, take a nap, and forget about the daily stress.

4. Sweaters.  Does this need an explanation?  Sweaters are pure heaven.

5. A few good reads.  Really, books are great for any season.  I could read all day long.

6. Fireplace.  (preferably with the fire.) We actually have a fire in our fireplace right now, and I was going to take a picture, but I would much rather finish up this post and go snuggle up by the real fire than edit a picture of one, thank you very much.


So there.  Go feel cozy, friends. :)

day sixteen.

I am a bargain shopping dominator.





All of this, for a grand total of $23.  I’m telling you, if you’ve never shopped at a thrift store, you are missing out COMPLETELY.  I went to Forever21 to find some cute fall/engagement outfits and couldn’t find a single sweater for under $15 each..which isn’t terrible.. but then I decided, hey, why not go to a thrift store?

So I did, of course.

I got the coat for $10, all the tops for $4 each, and the shoes for $3.  If you’re weird about buying other people’s clothes, just remember: there’s this thing called a washing actually cleans other people’s clothes, as well as your own!  However, I don’t usually suggest buying shoes from a thrift store, you don’t know what people’s feet have been into.  I just happened to buy a pair today because, well I really couldn’t pass up these shoes.  I mean..$3, and they’re in pretty good condition….I’ll risk it to have some fashionista feet.
