But it’s not Friday, it’s Thursday… And I’m not one for intros, so let’s get to it. Thank you Amanda for letting me be as inarticulate, scatterbrained, and random as I want : )
I was in desperate need of a winter coat. And when I say desperate, I mean I have one. Or two. But the fact is they are both kinda ugly. Warm as can be, but maybe not the cutest thing to wear out… especially my Mountain Hard Gear jacket which in college dubbed me as the Michelin Man. So when I just HAPPENED to be at the mall this past weekend I spied with my little eye this coat. Which one of my best friends already has. So I tried it on. And I looked like an adorable eskimo. Which then led me to one of the hardest decisions of all time… red… or grey?
After going back and forth, texting, emailing, SnapChatting the world, I decided on grey. I loved the red, but I suppose it could get old. And grey matches everything. And it’s professional, like me ..so with grey I went.
One of the reasons I love J.Crew so much, and truly 90% of why I actually just bought the coat with my own money instead of begging my mom, is because all outerwear was 40% off. And while shamelessly using my student ID, I got an additionally 15% off. Therefore I saved a grand total of 51%. And if you know anything about shopping and math, that actually means I saved money instead of spending $200.
I have no idea why, or how I found this really, but it is amazing. Not only does the person “assumes” this is a pet (how could you tell – maybe the leash?) or that they clearly have never seen, read, or heard about a ferret before, but the pure fact that they say it “smells weird”, is incredible. I saved this on my phone because it brings me great joy. Also, the ferret’s face just screams”wtf”.
And because this is a health and fitness blog of sorts… I want to mention the ketogenic diet I discussed before. Ellie brought to my attention some of the negative benefits this diet has on women, hormone’s, etc. I am definitely going to do a bit more investigating before committing to this type of eating, and I do plan on composing a post as to what a ketogenic diet actually is. Keep an eye out next week..ish.
This week has seemed to drag on and on, but when I really think about it, I feel like it was just August. I can’t believe the holiday season is upon us… a week from today I will be trotting (of the turkey sort) and feasting on all things sweet potato and green bean.
I hope you all have a fabulous Thursday, it is almost the weekend! Catch y’all on Monday. xo
What the most creative gift you’ve given your significant other… I’m totally stuck on what to get Will this year.. (sorry babe xo)
Would you have gotten the red or the grey coat?
Faux fur – yay or nay?
Am I also the only 27 (almost 28 year old) who still makes Christmas lists?
