Reunited and it Feels so Good

I left one of my favorite pieces at home in Illinois. Finally, we are reunited.

I look sad because I’m having some issues with my contacts. What I really need is to save up some money to get myself a pair of glasses!!! I never thought I would want a pair so bad…

Road Trip to the Tundra

I’ve been reading up on Man Repeller’s blog lately and I’ve recently been inspired by her mantra and tips. I’ve just begun to delve into it, but today’s look is inspired by Man Repeller.

What do you think of my Man Repelling look? Novice right? No worries I’m working on it.. haha!

At about 5:30pm today I will be setting out to drive back to the midwest! I will arrive in Chicago Wednesday and I am so excited to go home for Christmas! I miss my family and friends so much. I’m especially excited to see my friends because I didn’t get to see a single one of them over Thanksgiving, I had the stomach flu! I’m hoping this won’t happen again… wish me luck on the drive home!

I’m off to the Windy City today!

I am so sure I will be shocked by how cold it will be back home since I have been completely spoiled by this Washington DC weather!

Hope everyone has safe travels getting home!

Today’s foodie friday food porn post comes from Tam popo restaurant in Chicago on Lincoln Ave.  They have some serious Korean food, but the best thing in my opinion was their Sashimi. We had some sushi rolls too, but the sashimi just stole the show.

If you follow me on twitter, you know that last week, I attended a very sweet concert in Chicago’s very own Millennium Park featuring She and Him. The band comprised of Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward. I had no idea that everyone in Chicago ALSO loved She and Him, but then again, I should have known since I am completely and unabashedly in love with Zooey Deschanel and listen to She and Him constantly.
