Happy (almost) Thanksgiving! I seriously can’t believe how quickly this year has gone by. Winter break is fast approaching, I’ve had my Christmas decorations up in my apartment for almost two weeks (don’t judge me) and I’m currently packing for Thanksgiving break. I’m really excited to enter the holiday season – as evidenced by my putting up Christmas decor more than a month in advance – but I know the holidays can also be super hectic. I, for one, am going to be traveling between at least two different houses this Thanksgiving and what I’m going to wear is the last thing on my mind. So, I thought I’d put together a couple of outfits that will work for any kind of Thanksgiving dinner, whether you’ll be spending it with family or friends.
Glossier has been name-dropped by my friends and fellow makeup-lovers for a while now. I always loved the beautiful pale pink and white packaging (that’s pretty much my aesthetic, no?) but I never quite got the hype. Well, I was recently given the opportunity to test out some of Glossier’s most popular products and I have to say, I’m very impressed. Read on for my thoughts on some of Glossier’s makeup and skincare! (P.S. you can get 20% off your first order and free shipping on any order $30+ when you shop through my link)
Fall is, without a doubt, my favorite of all the seasons. I live for cozy nights in illuminated by firelight (which I sorely miss at my chimney-less apartment). But what my home lacks in fireplaces, it makes up for in having a fully-functioning kitchen! I hated not having access to a stove or oven my first two years at school; I’m a cook and a baker, through and through. So now that I finally have a kitchen to call my own, I’ve been making ample use of it. (Sorry to my roommates for making tons of baked goods that I force you to eat!). And now that it’s finally starting to feel like fall in Chicago, I’ve been whipping up all the autumnal goodies. Read on for my favorite fall recipes! Read More »
