Saving Steals

Oh my goodness y'all! What a crazy week! I got super sick on Sunday night and have been coughing up a lung for close to a week. I think I'm actually dying. JK. But really.

On a positive note, with all this major sickness, I got some excellent Netflix/online shopping/sleep/catch-up homework time. While all I wanted to do was workout, I couldn't. So, instead, I spent my week in bed, watching The Carrie Diaries (soooo good) while online shopping. My friend Corrie (such a sweet person, honestly love her) mentioned these websites to me earlier before I got super sick, so I had time to search through them.

I. Am. In. Love. They are boutique items for steals. Like it took restraint to not buy everything in sight.

Where do y'all get your deals?

4 "Go-To" Inspirational Songs

1) "Roar" - Katy Perry
One, who doesn't feel empowered by this song? Katy is such a powerhouse and she's honestly such an inspiration through her music. After listening to this song, you feel like you have the power to change the world by being a stronger version of yourself. Plus, the video of the kids at the Dartmouth Children's Hospital made this song absolutely adorable (Children's Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock performs Katy Perry's Roar)

2) "Firework" - Katy Perry
Seriously, this song is an anthem for anyone who's ever felt out of place, felt like they're alone in this world, or are questioning who they are. And I know, what a cliche song, but it really is a beautiful testament to how short life is and how you have to live every single second of it comfortable in your own skin. We've all felt like there is something wrong with us as some point in our lives, and this song just gives hope that you are never alone. Plus, it's Katy Perry. She's awesome.

3) "Begin Again" - Taylor Swift 
Don't laugh, but I really like this song. It's not like the first two in that it is about finding your own voice, but rather it gives hope that something good always comes after the storm. Everyone knows that when relationships end (especially the ones that felt like they were forever), there is this bottomless pit stuck inside your stomach and you feel like nothing will ever be the same. Knowing, eventually, there will be someone better to come sweep you off your feet is kinda comforting in a sappy, romantic way.

4) "Wake Me Up" - Avicii
This is literally my go to song of the year. It is a pump up song, a stress reliever and just an awesome song to spastically dance/jump to. There's just something relieving about having lyrical proof of life's unwinding journey and that through all the messes and complications, there is hope. Maybe I'm reading into this song too deeply. I don't know. But there's just something inspirational about knowing the journey that lies ahead of you is one unknown, but one that must be traveled.

What are y'alls "go-to" songs?

Winter Scarves

Hey y'all! It's starting to get kind of chilly here in Dallas, so people are breaking out the scarves. I (being from the freezing tundra that is Michigan) am a huge fan of scarves! They can add such a cute aspect to an outfit, not to mention they're monogrammable which is always a plus! Since it's getting close to the holidays, I adore everything plaid, especially scarves. What people don't realize is that there are so so so many types of plaid – colors, styles, fabrics – so the term "plaid" is super vague. I listed above the 4 most popular types of plaid I see around. 

Tartan:  "woolen or worsted cloth woven with stripes of different colorsand widths crossing at right angles, worn chiefly by the Scottish Highlanders, each clan having its own distinctive plaid." Can come is all kinds of colors, ranging from the classic green and red Christmas tartan to green/teal/cream colors.

Camel: "a color ranging from yellowish tan to yellowish brown" Made famous by Burberry. Very British classic and a winter staple. Can be found monogrammed on Marley Lilly.

Buffalo: "a plaid with large blocks formed by the intersection of two different-color yarns, typically red and black" Known as lumberjack plaid. Usually made for flannels. 

Houndstooth: "a woven fabric design of continuous broken checks or four-pointed stars, also called four-and-four check" Resembles the jagged teeth of a hound (dog). Is the official pattern worn by the Crimson Tide.

What types of scarves do y'all wear?
