Golden Quills

I have been in love with this jacket for two years and a fews weeks ago I finally took the plunge and bought it.

My Mom always told me "In the winter, coats are a very important staple. It's the first that people see you in. You want to make an impression." This has really stuck with me throughout the years. 

My Mom was full of fashion philosophy.

Monday Mornings

Happy Monday, world! I hope everyone had a good weekend and feels happy and recharged for the coming week! 

My weekend was a little crazy. Having some downtime to see friends for the past few weekends has been amazing, but getting back in the school saddle has not been. Why do homework when I can just go through my photos from last weekend one more time? When am I seeing all my hometown friends again? Yeah, it's hard to return to projects and homework after having a good time off from it, even for a few days. The important thing is to live in the moment, I'll see my friends again soon. This is one challenge that I have experienced this semester at school. It has been very difficult for me to focus on my classes at times. I have to keep reminding myself that school is just a temporary part of my life, but it is something that I have to do.

I hope this little elephant mug made you smile a little.

Eggplant Fries For Days

If anyone were ever to want to stalk me, the best place to find me is in Refuge Cafe in Allston Village. I go there a lot to do homework and sip iced coffee. I could also sit there and eat their eggplant fries for days...

King Richard's Faire

If there is one fall tradition that I love, it's my annual trip to King Richard's Faire! What other fall activity allows you to dress up in medieval garb and wander around with a sword? I mean I guess…Halloween, but whatever. 

I've got to admit, this was my first time going to the faire since high school, but it honestly felt like I had never been away. The people and characters were still as friendly as they had been three years ago. 

We couldn't have asked for better weather either. We had originally planned on going to the faire couple weeks back, but were unable to due the rain. With the bright autumn sun shinning bright overhead, we walked through the fairgrounds, sipping hot apple cider and eating our giant turkey legs (not me…#vegetarianprobz) What better way to spend a sunny Sunday?

Club 21

This Columbus Day weekend I got to spend some time with one of my best friends. Lexii turned 21 on Saturday so naturally we had to share a birthday drink together! Her family took us all out for dinner at Grazie. I hadn't been back since working there last summer so it was great to be back! The food was just as good as I remembered and the drinks…well it feels good to finally be old enough to order them!

Welcome to club 21, Lex, so glad that I could be there to celebrate with you!
