My Week

This week was a much needed one off of work. I had the time to catch up on school work, do a big cleaning around our apartment and head home for the Jewish New Year. I thought things couldn’t get any better until my adorable boyfriend surprised me with the sweetest anniversary gift of all time: a full baking corner! It was all filled with vintage treasures that really made my heart melt: jars, silverware, a clipboard for my recipes, a nob to hang my apron, a chalkboard and all! He specifically said he wanted me to ‘add my flavor’ to it and decorate it as I please… it will make cooking even more pleasurable than it already is. I’m sure this weekend I will be spending a lot of my time in the kitchen! Hope you all have a wonderful one, too!

60’s Frills

I’ve always been intrigued by the 1960’s (hence the dresses I’ve been wearing all this week) and this one is definitely the icing on the cake. When I saw it hanging in the vintage shop I knew it had to be mine, even though I wasn’t entirely sure it would fit me. Luck must have been on my side because it fit like a glove; I felt like a little girl going to a birthday party (what could be better than that)?! Because it’s the Jewish New Year I thought it was only appropriate to wear it to our family dinner at home to start the New Year off right!

Fall Transitioning + JewelMint

To transition myself into Fall I was finally able to get my hair done after a long couple of months and couldn’t be more pleased. I’m a big fan of mixing things up and definitely think that this hue suits my skin tone better. Aside from my hair being the perfect shade, I’ve been infatuated by my outfit’s color combo. I love the brown and mustard paired with pink, it’s a nice (and easy) transition into the Fall season.
