Random Things on Thursday

R.T.O.T 6.3.2015

Happy Thursday! This week is full of errands and packing, as I’m off to London next week!  Followed by a week of teaching the new-hires in Orlando.  I’ll still be posting throughout my trips, but be sure to following along on Instagram to see more!

1. Rose water – Both my flights to and from London this weekend are overnight – this rose water is going to be my new best friend, along with lots and lots of actual water and hopefully some sleep! *Not-so-glamorous side note, last time I took an overnight flight {Chicago to Rome} my feet were so swollen when we landed that my shoes didn’t fit. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate.

2. NARS, cruising – My new go-to lip color

3. Is J.Crew slipping? – This is an interesting reading from last week’s Wall Street Journal about the lack of quality and poor fit at J.Crew these past few seasons.  I’m a big fan of J.Crew and have been for years, so maybe it’s just me, but this data surprised me.  I do agree the clothes are getting a bit pricey, but I’ve never had an issue with quality.  And with the frequency of their “30% off everything” emails they’ve basically trained us to wait until an item goes on sale. Are you still on the J.Crew bandwagon? *I linked to the Facebook version of the article to hopefully surpass the subscription wall for you.

4. The Australian blog by two best friends, They All Hate Us, has been one of my favorites for years, but this month they are especially killing it. *Elle’s sister hand-makes the rings I’m always gushing over – Baby Anything

5. All the things – I relate to Jess’ post so, so much.  I want to do all the things and I want to live in multiple places all at once.  I love Chicago and all of my friends, but I miss my family and the little ones growing up at home.  However, I wouldn’t mind living in a completely new place and the adventures that experience would hold.  Is it too much to ask to live in all the places?

101 things in 1001 days completed // Purchased and started taking the vitamins my doctor told me about 3 months ago, Learned how to set on a button thanks to sewing lessons from my mama, sent my second of five “for no reason” gifts, started my 1 month of no shopping {sigh}, tried 1 of 10 new recipes {seriously, the quinoa enchilada recipe I mentioned in the last RTOT was delicious and so so easy}.
