The Challenge: A Week of Camo {Day 2- camo blue}

Day 2: Camo Blue



We have made it to finals week! 
I still have lots to share from fashion school this semester, 
like this knitting demo:



This circle knitting machine was so cool! 


We also got to see huge knitting machines, 
and some that can knit full garments! 

These tiny needles preform in such a synchronized way:


& make this white fabric, which is being spun into a bolt of fabric below:


Honestly, I live for these demos. 
Fashion school is so awesome.

The Challenge: A Week of Camo {Day 1}

When I saw this "Challenge" posted on JCrew's blog I immediately thought, 
"Yeah I could definitely do that, I own A TON of camo!"

Seriously. 
A ton of camo.
Which looks a little scary under my target from my **first** time shooting a handgun,

yup, didn't miss one shot 😏

So let's do it. 
A Week of Camo: Day 1




What I Wore: glasses- Firmoo, lips- Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Lip Shine "Soft Blush", necklace- Baublebar, top- Forever 21, pants- H&M, flats- Target 




I absolutely love giggling at these camo memes:

Speaking of someone trying to blend in, 
this bird visited me twice in the sunroom...
I took 20 mins to get him out the first time and when I finally did, 
he showed right back up! 
Finally got him out of the sunroom, still have no idea how he got in, 
no windows were open...

Challenge accepted, bring this blog lots of camo this week!

if you need me... I will be searching for these knitted glasses.


I will be in oversized sweaters, 
looking for these knitted glasses on Pinterest from Trendhunter.com
I need them in my life. 
Why have I not found these for sale, why can't I have them with my lenses, 
 and why are they not on my face?!?!
{source: top- Trendhunter.com | bottom- cluttermagazine.com}

Then I found these:

& these!! 
{source: Pinterest}

Okay, they don't have to be actually knitted or crochet, 
how about a print or an acetate pattern? 
COME ON EYEGLASS WORLD! 

#maybeIshoulddesignmyownglasses

We had our first snow fall yesterday, 
it is so pretty! 

Happy I get to relax and enjoy this snow day with my hubby and fur babies today!
{while attempting to study for finals...}

This kitty is too cute! 
He loves the heater

& this little pug muffin melts my heart! 
He is so squishy! 

+ some homemade pancakes, & Kriek "Mariage Parfait" via Boon Brewery!

Perfect snowy Sunday! 
If only I had those knitted glasses to complete this Spectacular Sunday...

I'm not really a WAITRESS


I love Sara Bareilles and I love Jason Mraz,
I saw both of them (at separate times) in college,
so when I heard he was going to be in Waitress on Broadway I wanted to see it even more! 
It has been on my wishlist since it opened,
when my friend Holly said she had an extra ticket to go see Waitress
I knew I had to take the opportunity to see it for $50, 
even if I have to see it all by myself...
I mean that is the definition of #TreatYoSelf
PS. My mani is OPI "I'm Not Really A Waitress" one of my all time favorites, 
I know I know, I am such a fan girl!




Such a great show,
every one was so good! 

The Brooks Atkinson Theatre was so nice too, 
I loved the ornate feather details on the ceiling:

On the way back to the train I saw these horse cops riding around Times Square!
I did not know this was a thing, 
I mean I have seen them in Central Park but not in the actual city! 
These horses are HUGE, I stood next to one and I only came up to his knee cap.
It was so awesome to see:

Of course,
 I have been non-stop listening to "What's Inside: Songs From Waitress" by Sara Bareilles,
seriously have become addicted. 
These are my favorites:
{especially "Bad Idea" & "I Didn't Plan It"}

I also had to get "The Negative" from the Broadway album:

I really wish the song "It Only Takes A Taste" was on the Sara Bareilles' album, 
I love it with Jason Mraz!


& I added my faves to my 2017 Spotify Playlist, of course! 

& I had to get myself this little pie necklace from the show, 
it was too cute! 

Had to wear some leopard and vintage leather for a date-night-out-with-myself:



What I Wore: glasses- c/o Lafont, necklace- Waitress the Musical on Broadway, jacket & top- vintage, pants- Anthopologie, boots- Walmart, bag- vintage Dooney & Bourke 






My friend Holly from fashion school talked about Waitress,
 and she said when she saw it she couldn't stop thinking about the coffee mug 
during the whole show, but only got herself the magnet, 
I knew I had to get her the coffee mug, 
especially since she got me the ticket and made my Waitress dreams come true! 

Not going to lie, 
I have been singing this soundtrack in my head while working at the Vault
making being a waitress much more pleasant...
