The Littlest Things

Now that I’m in the last stretch of my education I’ve been flooded with assignments and responsibilities. With that said I’ve resorted to finding joy in the littlest things.

These Reese cupcakes were so good. So good. Yes this is product placement, but did I mention how good they were? The perfect little pick me up treat for my hectic week.

My man friend got these for me. Why you may ask? Because I made him a graduation card and got him Mini Eggs. The card was made online and printed at school and the Mini Eggs was reduced Easter candy at work. My thing cost less than $3 and by looking at this amazing arrangement, his cost a bit more.  This is the first time I’ve ever gotten flowers for no real reason from a guy I was seeing. Hell it was the first time a guy has ever gotten me flowers and while to him it was nothing it is the sweetest thing someone’s done for me in a long time.

The different textures of some of my new purchases. Obviously getting something new is exciting, but these aren’t designs and textures I normally have in my closet so I’m excited to start test driving these dresses and experimenting with how to wear the green laser cut skirt, (which looks very cute with a white blouse and grey blazer).

Goodbye Ruby Tuesday

Tired. So tired. I’ve been planning and prepping for my programs award night since September and been trying to haul ass since January.

Now that it’s three days away I am beyond stressed/tired/hungry/scrambled/excited and a hundred other emotions I’m to busy to think of.

Yesterday I got to school around 8 a.m. and had to leave at 10 p.m. only because my building had to close. The only time I left was to treat myself to a very expensive vanilla latte from Starbucks. By the time I got home it was 11 and I was up until 3 a.m. only to wake back up at 7 a.m.

Tired is an understatement and I’m very much looking forward to the comfy night in that my bed and I are going to have watching old episodes of The Twilight Zone. 

So when forcing myself to get out of bed I threw together the easiest combo I could think of and threw my hair in a messy bun using the new Goody Spin Pins I love them beyond words and the metal headband is from Urban Outfitters and was on clearance for $3. I quite liked the messy chic look I chose for today.  My top half is H&M (blazer, blouse, necklace) and without question I am wearing my TOMS which have been a savior with all the running montages my life has been filled with.

The Sweater Song

Oh spring. It hasn’t really peeked through just yet and today’s weather was odd to say the least. It flip flopped between windy, rainy, hail, cold and a bit of sun.

Today I broke out one of my favourite spring/summer sweaters. I got this last year around this time from Boathouse. I’m pretty sure it is the comfiest throw on item I own. For the past two weeks my bottom half has been jeans and my cream coloured TOMS. I’m planning an awards night for my program and being stressed to the max I refuse to wear heels with all the running around I’ve been doing.

In this awkward in between season time I have the hardest time not resorting to just jeans, but it’s my staple piece. I figure I’m a few weeks away from going on the wonderful career job hunt I might as well enjoy it.

Keeping up the laid back vibe of this gorgeous boho sweater I left my hair au natural, braided myself a headband and I added a loose light purple RW&CO shirt. My Tiffany’s necklace I got from Christmas from my grandparents is an easy way to keep it pretty. I’m positive I could wear a paper bag and still feel like a queen in my Tiffany’s key.

I’m looking forward to being able to start wearing all my dresses but for now I’m perfectly happy in my blue jeans and a sweet top.
