It’s the Great Pumpkin!


We stopped by the pumpkin patch to pick some pumpkins for Halloween!

Happy Halloween, everybody!


Worth It


J’adore this makeup at Target!

It’s Elf and I love it because it’s easy and inexpensive. I especially like the eyeshadows, lipgloss, and blush. : )

Soo many cute, colorful eyeshadows to try out, for $1.00?! Yes, please!

And the lipgloss is so great – it looks good, smells good, and feels good. A win-win-win situation. Plus! It’s SPF 15, perfect for some easy sun protection.

Have you tried out any Elf makeup?  What did you think?

Midterm season is finally finishing up at Emory.

During all the crazy hours spent rereading notes at Starbucks or studying in the library, I wanted to stay dressed comfortably!

So! My midterm season uniform was mainly my Target pink wrap-around sweater (2009), white tunic-shirt from H&M, black leggings, and Toms.

I think I’ll start doing these “outfit snapshot” posts regularly – what do you think? : )

The Big Draw, Emory Edition


Emory participated in the international Big Draw as part of one of our Wonderful Wednesdays – there was impromptu art happening all over campus!

‘Scuse these photos… I only had my phone camera on me, again! (I’ll hopefully definitely get better about charging my camera battery.)

Reams of paper were even stretched over the ground alongside chalk – for everyone to jump in!

I love art, and I loved seeing everyone join in for the fun. : )

Sustainable Food Fair

Each fall, Emory throws a Sustainable Food Fair, featuring tons of locally grown fresh food, restaurants that serve sustainable foods, local sustainable food nonprofits, AND! free samples! There’s always a great turn out, loud music (last year they had banjo players!), and a bunch of cool food to try out or buy.

(‘Scuse these photos – I only had my phone camera on me! Oops!)

The fair promotes all these locally grown, sustainable efforts – but it also aims to inform people about the issue of sustainability. There are info signs around, and the nonprofit representatives are there to answer any questions.

There’s a huge variety of food stands – breads, pie, tea, honey, ice cream, vegetables, pastries, cheeses, yogurt….

And all the vendors are super-passionate about their work and eager to talk to you.

Fresh food, nice people, outdoor music – what’s not to love?

Hello, fall temps in Georgia!

Around October, it starts getting cold in the mornings. Real cold. But it’s still Georgia-hot in the afternoon!

To balance between these chilly and sweaty parts of the day, we layer our clothing. : )

Today I wore a magenta tunic paired with black leggings from New York & Company. And to keep warm, I pulled out my vintage Gap jean jacket, plus a scarf.

So bring in on, Georgia weather! We can take it!
