A Week in Review

Good morning and happy Thursday. I hope my posts brighten your day a bit and maybe even inspire you. I love going through Instagram or my blog feed and reading what other people are saying. It usually gives me that extra skip in my step to get my day going. Everyone needs something to groove to!

panera_breadThe last week has been relaxing and I’ve truly enjoyed it. Just sitting around and not doing much of anything is a luxury in life and I don’t take it for granted. Starting Saturday my life is going to get busy really fast. Not to mention Thanksgiving is next Thursday and I for one am looking forward to it.

Sunday I spent the day with a friend and we went to Panera Bread. I got tomato soup and a turkey and cranberry flatbread sandwich. It was a nice combo and just enough to satisfy me. I hate feeling overstuffed! You can just look at your stomach and see how it has expanded in the last hour. Getting on a treadmill seems like a great idea until you realize that the food hasn’t quite digested yet.

I also spent a little time shopping around town. I live in typical faux_fur_headbandsuburbia the only difference is that we don’t have many good places to shop. The nearest mall is 45 minutes away. The nearest nice mall is about 90 minutes away. So when I say I’m shopping what I actually mean is going to Target and maybe Marshalls. Anyway, I found the cutest little head band at Target and it’s made to look like fur. It’s on my Christmas list now.

keep_calm_and_eat_cupcakesThe rest of the week has been filled with a lot of sitting around and drinking hot beverages while updating the blog and sending out my resume. Did I mention it’s hard to find a job right now? I’m graduating in 3 weeks and the job market seems to hate me at the moment. I’m getting a tad nervous! It’s times like these when I wish I could jump up and marry a rich man so I wouldn’t have to worry. I think this elevates me to gold digger status though. Oops.

I’ve also been going through my closet and seeing what dresses and little_black_dressprofessional clothing needs dry cleaning or tailoring. I tried on this lacy, black Express dress and am debating on whether I love it anymore. It has become my go-to dress for events but I’m not sure if it still flatters my figure. Opinions please!

  1. Good luck with your job hunt, stay relaxed – think positive thoughts so the universe throws positive energy back at you!

    Your dress pic is a little blurry, but it looks absolutely lovely on you! If I may…Most of us women tend to go toward black dresses as we think it makes us look thinner, taller..etc (i think yours is black) black goes completely flat in photos… The wrong fit, even in black is not flattering and we can end up looking how we wished not to look..I come across this when shopping with my clients, they always b-line for black… I just make sure it fits to a T or talk them into another color. One shoulder dresses usually look amazing on most figures too, so fantastic choice!



  2. Great post! I love your Keep Calm mug. Where did you purchase? What are you majoring in? Good luck on the job hunt.

    P.s. The dress looks great on you. You should keep.



  3. Sounds like you have had a nice relaxing week! Something will come up on the job front soon, it is difficult out there for graduates at the moment!
    I like the dress, I think it is a bit different because of the asymmetric neckline and it looks very nice on you. 🙂
    Enjoy the rest of your chilled out week!
