The Best Stocking Stuffers for 2014


The stocking is the first thing we go through on Christmas morning while mom is making breakfast. Usually, its filled with candy and little hygiene goodies, nothing too crazy. Above are little luxury items (but easy on the wallet) that are sure to make your stocking extra special! 


Little thumb update: I started OT today and finally got a much more manageable thumb spica, so excited! I have much more hand function and tops are no longer limited to flannels :)

Last minute gift guide {under 50$}


Only a week and a day left for shopping until Christmas! I really can't believe it's next week. Between finals and surgery I have barely made a dent in my list. For this gift guide I had my friends in mind, all who have their own style but I think a lot of these items would work for them all! Plus, everything is under 50$, because this graduate student is a baller on a budget. Be sure to use the arrow to scroll to the second page.

Tonight I'm getting out for the first time in a week to my moms art gallery for a Mick Fleetwood photography exhibit they're hosting. Should be a fun night!

Where Have I Been??

{via}

Why hello there, it's been a while since I've been able to post! I apologize for the silent treatment. I'm typing this with one hand because I have a beautiful cast on my thumb after a minor ligament repair surgery. Remember that weekend I played flag football? Well lets just say that was the last time I'll be participating in school intramurals... I ended up tearing the UCL of my thumb and needed surgery to keep my thumb for flapping around (sorry for the visual). Hey, at least the feeling is back in my teeth after a head to head collision- it was a lot less "FLAG" football than expected. 

Anyway, I'm going to be laying low over Christmas break because getting ready with your non-dominant hand is no fun. I'm pretty limited in the amount of tops that can fit over the cast, plus a sling isn't my favorite accessory. I'm hoping my new cast next week will be a lot less bulky, this one goes just below my elbow. I'll have a few fashion post thanks to the holidays (and my birthday next month!), but it will definitely be less than I originally planned. 

On a positive note, I am participating in my very first Loop giveaway on Instagram (follow me here). Stay tuned tomorrow at 8p.m with the details! It's only running for 48 hours.

Also, I've updated my SHOP tab above and my winter faves in the sidebar, so check it out if you're looking for some gift ideas!
