This past week I had midterm exams, and it basically had my head spinning from Monday to Friday. Finally after a Saturday spent relaxing and doing a little bit of roommate-bonding-slash-retail-therapy, I'm fully repaired and ready to tackle next week. Well, maybe.
Friday night I went out with a few friends planning to hit up Ted's Bulletin for dinner, but since they were on an hour wait, we decided just to get a few poptarts and head to Chipotle instead. Ted's poptarts are way worth the trip though. I seriously can't explain to you how good they are. I got a strawberry one. Just look at those sprinkles!
Now that I've survived midterms I have a little time to sit down with a good book and some wine. I tried Jam Jar wine for the first time this week and it was really good. It's affordable and not to dry or too sweet, which is always a plus. The company even liked my instagram pic, which I thought was really cool. I've also started reading White Teeth by Zadie Smith, which I hear is a modern classic. I'm only about twenty pages in, but so far I'm really enjoying it. More in-depth review to come.
Yesterday I bought the best candle of the season. Seriously, if you haven't experienced Marshmallow Fireside you need to get your life together. It's my favorite of their fall scents. Go to your nearest B&BW and smell them all immediately. Tell them I sent you. They'll have no idea who I am but tell them anyway, just for fun.
Speaking of other scents, I've been really into Yankee Candle's Autumn in the Park as it smells like fresh apples and fall air. So good.
I also got my hands on Too Faced Melted Velvet, which is kind of the prettiest red ever. Taylor Swift would approve. I didn't bother with makeup too often (like, at all) during midterms, but since I had a Sephora gift card and needed a new cruelty free red lipstick, I was all about this. It was a nice pick-me-up during the otherwise bleak and stormy exam days.
I finished reading The Boston Girl by Anita Diamant, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Though it was a bit slow at parts, I thought it was a really good picture of what lie must have been like in the early 1900s. I would recommend this to anyone who likes realistic and/or historical fiction.
In the midst of my studying and trying-to-remain-sane during midterms, I got a few quiet moments to do some crafting. One of my favorite pieces was this little canvas. Such an inspiring message, don't you think?
Now that all of this is over, I'm gonna lay back and watch some Friends on Netflix.
How did your week go?
