Wishing I Were Home

For Thanksgiving I had quite a difficult time getting home. Apparently Christmas is going to be no different. 




It's Christmas eve and I'm currently stranded at the airport. On Thanksgiving I was flying out the Wednesday evening before and my flight got cancelled. I ended up getting to Atlanta at 3am, sleeping at the airport, and catching another flight at 8am. It was pretty horrendous, to be honest. 

This time there is another plane malfunction (seriously???) so my flight's been delayed for a few hours. So. Here I am writing a blog post! I normally don't have this much trouble with flights but for some reason this holiday season has not been on my side! Normally, my travel stories end with a happy ending that I get a lot of free airline miles or something but no such luck recently. 


I took some photos inside yesterday because I felt like getting some blog content done but it was raining. I am excited to visit some of my old blog photo locations from when I started this blog. I'm excited for a lot of things in the upcoming week. No work, lots of running, good food, family and friends I haven't seen in a long time! It should be really relaxing. 

Sweater: Vintage 
Shirt, Skirt, and Shoes: Thrifted 
Tights: Forever 21

What's your worst travel story? 
Happy holidays!

Winter Blues

You've probably noticed things have been quiet over here for a while. I've been really sick the past month or so. First I was having some really bad chronic nausea (which seems to have subsided thankfully!) and then I got hit with a terrible cold. I was planning on shooting some new blog content this weekend but that just didn't happen. the last thing I wanted to do was wake up early and go shoot when I was feeling so crummy. So, I thought I'd share some of my favorite outfits from last winter until I go home this weekend and can shoot some more. 

I also might do a roundup of my favorite outfits from this year (not just winter) but that won't be until early January. 





I've been feeling a bit disconnected from the blogging world lately. Since I decided to take things slow on this blog, I've had trouble writing down my thoughts. I haven't even been thrifting in a really long time (maybe a month?)! It's not that I've lost interest in blogging or thrifting but I've got some other things on my mind. I want to get back out and shoot so hopefully some time away from work will be just what I need to get back on track with this. 

It's so strange to look back at these photos, honestly. This year feels like it's gone by really quickly. It's been a difficult but also really rewarding year. I've moved to an entirely new city, found a job, found a love for running again, and so much more! I also burned myself out from this blog and working full-time (and trying to build a social life, applying to school, etc etc etc). But I took some time away and I'm ready to get back into things. I know I keep saying that lately but I do mean it. 





Can you believe the year is almost over?

Sephora Play - November!

It's been a while since I've done a beauty post! To clarify from my last post - I will be posting on this blog but just not on instagram. I'm still trying to figure out a schedule that will work because I'm not sure I can commit to three posts per week but we'll see!

I recently started subscribing to the Sephora PLAY box. I've never gotten a beauty subscription box but a friend of mine recommended this one and it's only $10! I was pretty pleased with my first box so I thought I'd show you what I got! And I might have subscribed because of the blog content....








November's theme was "Best in Glow" so it featured a myriad of products to help either give you a natural glow or give you a little help with it! 

The first product is the Glam Glow Hydrating Thirstymud Treatment, which I was really excited to try out. It's a really nice mask for clearing up my skin BUT very drying. I definitely wouldn't pay $70 for a full size. 

The next product is the Caudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet. This is a really nice moisturizer. It didn't irritate my skin (like most) and left it fairly hydrated. But again, I don't know if I would pay $40 for it. 




One product I haven't tried yet is the Cover FX Illuminating Primer. I haven't been wearing much face makeup lately but when I do, I'll definitely be giving this a try! 

Probably my favorite thing from this box is the Laura Mercier Cavier Stick Eye Color. I've been wearing it everyday since I got it! It lasts all day and is the perfect champagne color for this time of year. I'm obsessed. 


One product I honestly didn't even try is the Sephora Ultra Shine Lip Gloss. It's a hot pink color and I really hate lip glosses so I didn't even bother. 

The box also comes with a perfume sample each time, which is fun but I normally stick to the same perfume (a-hem cologne) everyday. 

Would you get the Sephora Play box?
