Five midterms, five days. I spent my Thanksgiving weekend locked up in my room pencil in one hand, calculator in the other. If I wasn't madly punched away at my calculator, I was madly typing away on my laptop hoping for my code to compile. This past Saturday afternoon at 4:30PM, I closed my last midterm exam booklet and felt immediate relief. Sunday afternoon, I ventured out to the mall and decided to treat myself to a couple new things I had had my eyes on for some time.
A couple weeks back I was browsing the Aritzia online shop because hey, I get distracted sometimes. I came across the Sunday Best Blume Skirt in this gorgeous inky floral print and immediately fell in love with it. Across the website I found this skirt paired with a variety of tops making it an incredibly versatile piece. It can easily be dressed up with a nice collared shirt or dressed down with a plain tee. There were so many ideas of what I could wear it with from what already existed in my wardrobe that I just had to get it. It's the only skirt I own at the moment and it's enough. I can't wait to wear it in the autumn and winter with tights, and the spring and summer with bare legs.
Then of course when I spotted the Sephora a couple shops down with a gift card in hand, I couldn't resist popping in to finally pick up the limited edition Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Palette. How gorgeous is this!? I was hesitant to purchase it prior to seeing it in person as I already own the shade Luminous Flush separately but as soon as I saw it in person, I couldn't walk away without it. I'm too addicted to blushes and this particularly palette was too good to give up. I cannot wait to use it after properly photographing. #bloggerproblems, am I right?
I spent the rest of my Sunday relaxing at home catching up with blog posts, watching YouTube videos and Modern Family, painting my nails, and talking to the boyfriend I neglected throughout the week. I'm still feeling so incredibly excited to have these new additions to my collection!
