OOTD: Highland Fling

Affilier DSC_2171 I know that I haven’t really featured any lifestyle/life in NY posts lately. I guess that’s what happens when you get a job. With terrible hours. That’s not in Manhattan. I really haven’t done anything or gone anywhere. I didn’t even think that the area was a good place to photography my outfits, till someone told me that grungy industrial provides a good backdrop for “fashion.”

You tell me!

February 2014 Birchbox Unboxing

No, you didn’t misread that. Yes, it says February 2014 Birchbox. I had canceled my Birchbox

(In case you’re not familiar with it, Birchbox is a monthly subscription service where, for just $10 a month, you receive a box full of deluxe-sized and travel-sized samples. You receive Birchbox points for every purchase you make and every review your write, which can be redeemed in their store. Get your own here.)

But then I saw that this month’s box was a collaboration with US Weekly. I keep seeing on the Birchbox UK and Birchbox France blogs that the often have collaboration boxes that look so cute and fun, so I thought I’d better make sure not to miss this one.

I should have listened to my original instinct.

January 2014 Birchbox Unboxing

New month, new January 2014 Birchbox. I finally got mine, days later than some. My post office is literally the worst.

So, I followed through on my threat to stop making videos. (Actually, if I’m honest, that was decided by my oversleeping by an hour yesterday morning.) I’m sure you’re devastated not to watch my hack productions. (This will give me more time to hone my craft for next month?)

If you’ve read my previous unboxing posts and/or watched my videos, you know that I’ve been finding Birchbox disappointing for a while. Every month I’m THISCLOSE to canceling, and just never pull the trigger. I am not an optimist, but I guess I just WANT it to get better since I love getting my Birchbox (in theory).

Well, this month’s has not gone far to staying my hands. Especially considering one of the main things was tea. (Fine, it was a “lifestyle extra,” but still!) I got a couple of things that were, hmm, okay, cool. But only one thing that I’m like, “Yayyyyyy!!” about. Maybe my expectations are too high?

Anyway, on to the rundown!

Music Monday #16 – More Than A Feeling by Boston

Saturday night saw me in a bar populated with NYU students (and I’m far from a college student, let me tell you). When a familiar song, that I hadn’t heard in ages, came on: “More Than A Feeling” by Boston. And amusingly, one that so many of the younguns there wouldn’t even know.

But it seems fitting since I’ll be heading up to Boston on Thursday evening. So let’s take back the 80s!

I dare you not to tap your hands and feet along. 😉
