maine sunrise.

Oh, hello. Once again, I've let this little blog fall by the wayside--I haven't been up to anything too exciting, which is probably why I've neglected to post. That said, time is flying: I can't believe it's already November and the sun is now setting at 4:30. I've been so tired lately (partly due to early morning workouts and traveling to an office) and the lack of daylight is not going to be good for my overall functioning. I'm notorious for quasi-hibernation in the winter months.

Aside from my seasonal complaints, I had a great long weekend in Maine a couple of weeks ago--I'm trying to figure out how I can relocate there full-time, because it's seriously my happiest place.

While at Stonewall Kitchen headquarters in York, I picked up their Roasted Apple Grille Sauce and made what might be the most delicious pasta sauce ever--stayed tuned for the recipe and a giveaway this week--I seriously loved it that much.

Thanks to a heads up from my mom, I bought these boots in grey and I'm obsessed--they are so incredibly comfortable and I also love that they come up to my kneecaps which is no small feat. While they aren't a total copycat of  50/50s, at $39.99 you can't beat the price.

On my way home from work, I've been listening to the My Favorite Murder podcast--at first I wasn't sure I liked it (I started at the beginning) but it's so weird and disturbing and it has totally grown on me.

Another thing I'm loving is a new nail polish discovery: I've been self-performing my manicures and pedicures as of late, and after reading this article I decided to try Sally Hansen's Miracle Gel. So far, it's great--super shiny and I love the thicker brush. I'll be sure to update with my thoughts after I've had it on for a while, but so far, it totally looks like a salon manicure.

One thing I wasn't so enamored with: When in French. I know I had said before that I liked it, but I definitely jumped the gun--I was expecting more of a memoir and it ended up being super heavy on historical references of language which had me like "meh". I forced myself to finish it, but it was definitely not my favorite.

That's all I've got--have a good week!

  1. I may need to check out those boots. I just bought a pair of booties from Calypso I have worn every single day. Not, 39.99, but I am getting a lot of use out of them!
