Hello. Last week I got in a new Everlane cashmere sweater and have been living in it since its arrival. I sized up for a super loose fit. It’s soft and warm and comforting. The color is a perfect burgundy shade that melded instantly into my closet of black, gray, and navy.
Here’s an Everlane Invitation link for anyone who wants to check them out. https://www.everlane.com/n/1nu2l6
I also finally ordered one of their $15 U-neck tees. So happy I did. I got it to wear with thick sweater coats and my leather jacket and the fit is more flattering than I could have hoped for. I think for me the U-neck is more flattering than their original ryan tees even. I might order another in black eventually.
This weekend was pretty great actually. I felt really productive. Around this time of year I tend to want a change and either cut or color my hair or both. But so far I’ve been more into rearranging the furniture and home decor of my house. Just room to room. Switching out lamps or moving a piece of furniture. I hadn’t done it in so long. And the small changes make coming home from work feel less routine.
I kept starting and stopping writing a new blog post all week. Nothing in particular stopping me. I would just feel really motivated but then some little thing would bum me out and I wouldn’t feel like finishing. I think that best describes my entire October. Full of ups and downs. Little joys followed by little bummers. I’m mostly feeling bummer’fied thanks to being sick or having a constant toothache. Being in physical discomfort has its way of wearing on you emotionally of course. Hopefully by the holidays I’ll be done with the toothache aspect.
This week I received a care package from a friend. It was full of Halloween themed & colored sweet stuff. Pumpkin Tart cookies from Country Ma’am, Lavender Tea Latte from Maxim, and Pumpkin Pudding Kit-Kats.
The cookies are a mix bag of vanilla chocolate chip and the pumpkin tart. Country Ma’am cookies are one of my all time favorite cookie brands. The vanilla is one of their staples but this was the first time I got to try the pumpkin. Quite good. Extra sweet and a bit rich. I heated them up for a few seconds so they seemed especially creamy.
The pumpkin pudding kit-kats were good as well. More mild in taste than the Country Ma’am pumpkin tart. These had a light sweet flavor.
I haven’t tried the lavender tea latte stick yet. It’s supposed to have a lavender and bergamot taste. I like a lot of bergamot flavored things so I have high hopes here!
