A bit ago, I was lucky enough to receive a HurrBand! Based in Lousiana, this Etsy business sells really cute patterned headbands. The owner is enrolled in school now, but will be coming back December 17! Take a look below and their Instagram to get your order ready!
I think the HurrBand could be great for group events like a sorority volunteer day-it's an easy and cute way to get everyone to match.
How has your week been? Let me know and I will you how mine went...
Yesterday, I tried this recipe for stuffing egg cups. I love stuffing at Thanksgiving, so I was all over trying this. Basically, you mix together 6 eggs, 2 tablespoons cheese (I used Trader Joe's fake moz because I'm allergic), little bit of pepper, and a box of stuffing. Put in muffin tin for 40 minutes at 325. I love all breakfast foods, but this is amazing!
A few months ago, a topic about non-family female role models came up on one of the message boards I read. I was super pumped to read the hundreds of comments, hoping to find tons of powerful women.
Unfortunately, many of the comments were about fictional women TV characters: Jess from New Girl, Olivia Pope on Scandal, and Claire from House of Cards kept coming up.
For weeks after, I've been thinking about that post. Today, I have a real role model to share and inspire. Sophia Amoruso: A #GirlBoss who went from being fired to CEO of a company of 200 employees in only 7 years.
Today, I got the second installment of Jeff Goin's newsletter and one section in particular stood out to me:
"Writer. The word just felt so intimidating to me. But then one day a friend asked me what my dream was. When I told him it was to be a writer, he said, "You don't have to want to be a writer. You are a writer; you just need to write."'
I have been thinking about this concept a lot: You don't need anyone's permission.
One of the great things about watches is that it's an easy way to change up your look. If taken care of properly, watches can also last a long time. If you buy a quality watch, you won't need to trash it and replace it every few years. Better for the environment and your wallet! Whenever I pick out a watch, I think of what situations I would want to wear it in. Here are my top picks for affordable women's watches under $150!! (Click the arrow to see all the watches)
Casual Day Running Errands:
I love the Swatch, Betsey Johnson, and Wewood watches to add something unique to a plain outfit. Be prepared for a ton of compliments as you go about your Saturday errands!
The iWatch is super cool, but also really expensive for what's probably going to be a buggy product. Do you remember the first generation of the ipod? Exactly. The sporty watch from Nixon can become your mainstay instead.
As promised, I am so excited for this indie makeup giveaway for 5 Shiro Miyazaki Cosmetic Lip Balms!
Shiro Cosmetics is a great indie makeup company that has some of the most pigmented eyeshadows around. I particularly love the Seven Kingdoms (Game of Thrones-inspired) Collection! I have ordered twice from Shiro, and been impressed with the speed (only a few weeks, compared to other indie companies) and quality.
I bought these items myself to spread the indie makeup love! Thanks for your support and have a great day!
