Seasons greetings mah people! Sorry for the lack of updates, I am currently vacationing in Ohio and forgot my camera cord in Titletown. I wanted to wait so that I could use my pictures along with my posts but I am impatient (go figure) and just want to post NOW! (Hence the shoddy picture quality from the iPhone even though I have the newer one with the better camera...it's still crap.)
It has been beautiful and snowing here almost every day! I haven't seen snow in about two years! My life post-finals has consisted of the following things that I am SO LOVING. (In case you are wondering the photo at the top is from my last day of Accounting class. To celebrate my friend Andrew dressed up as Santa and I obvi had to get a pic. Please disregard my random elf ear peeking out of my hair, not sure what that is.)
So Loving it Right Now.........
1. Mad Men on DVD
This show is hands-down the best non-comedy show on television. I have been watching the DVD's starting at Season One over break and I am hooked. If you are otherwise sitting on your rear watching "The 400 lb. Virgin" or "Jersey Shore" there is no reason why you should not expose yourself to this piece of small screen magic. January Jones and Jon Hamm are equally gorgeous and the layers of each character is truly mesmerizing. (Sorry Snookie and The Situation, please don't take it personally, I unfortunately love your show even though you single handedly deface the Italian culture one poof, blowout, and roid rage sesh at a time.)
2. "Cardy" Ugg Boots
I just got these ADORABLE boots from my bf as an early Christmas present because he knew I could use them in Alaska Ohio. The are SO comfortable and go with everything! I have been a fan of the older knit Ugg boot that came out about a year ago and I like this new "Cardy" style even better than the older one! I have discovered a million different ways to wear these guys (besides the above, traditional way) and I am sure I will come up with more as I have been wearing them every day! Here are some ways I have figured out so far. (Again, sorry for the crapola pictures, it was late afternoon.)
Top half fold! (Could also fold all the way!)
Unbuttoned and folded! (Probably my favorite!)
3. Gator Snuggies
Although I do not yet have one of my own I have been schlepping around in my bf's Gator Snuggie that my mom gave him for his birthday. Make fun of these things all you want, the second you put your arms into "the blanket with sleeves" you will understand. (And if you get a collegiate Snuggie you will not only understand but you will look like an enthusiastic, sports-loving monk. And what could be better than that?)
4. Crush It
I recently won this book off of Twitter from one of my favorite entrepreneur/social media dude/wine connoisseur Gary Vaynerchuk. (Follow him @garyvee) This dude is a high energy, in your face, no crap kind of business man and I LOVE watching all of his videos about building your business and using technology to your advantage. Gary grew his family's discount liquor store into a 70 MILLION dollar business all through hard work, sweat, and something that he likes to call CARING. This book is an easy read and will give you the kick in the you-know-what you need to start doing something about your passions and dreams. Oh, and did I mention he sells wine for a living? Where do I sign up?
5. Nordstrom Rack
I always find the BEST deals when I come to Ohio and visit Nordstom Rack. Last visit I found Burberry rain boots for UNDER $100! Well, I must have good Nordstrom Rack Burberry karma because this trip I found Burberry gold quilted flats for......$4o! Can you believe it?! Point, me. Thank you come again. I can not wait to wear these with an all-black outfit and minimal gold jewelry. Poss black tights, black turtle neck under a black tank dress, thin gold bangle, and gold chandelier earrings? Okay don't mind if I do!
Hope everyone is SO LOVING their holiday!
