Wrap Up | Week 15

Wrapping up the week with photos, inspiration and fun things from my own life and the web.


PHONE SNAPS

Lots of things we don't normally do went on this week - my eyebrows done, shopping at the mall, checking out PDQ (because I've heard so many good things) and date night with Beauty and the Beast. More house hunting (of course) and my new glasses finally arrived, so I can totally see far away again!


RECENT HAPPENINGS


HARRY IS HERE

Harry Styles finally dropped his long-awaited solo single. It's very Beatles-like and super mellow. Pretty dark too. It's kind of a somber, apocalyptic love song and I've totally been playing it off the hook. He's performing it for the first time on Saturday Night Live tonight, so I'm excited to watch that! 

Sign of the Times

"Just stop your crying, It's a sign of the times, 
We gotta get away from here, We gotta get away from here"


NOTABLE QUOTES


"Whatever is good for your soul, do that." | pin it

"No one is you. That is your power." | pin it

"We either make ourselves miserable or we make ourselves strong. The amount of work is the same." | pin it


Rent The Glam Prom Dress

It's prom season around here and I know many are still on the hunt for that perfect dress. As I remember it, prom shopping was a fun idea that turned into a stressful situation. Trying to stay on budget was not easy. As much as you want to keep extending it because "you'll totally be able to sell the dress afterwards..." Try telling that to the four prom dresses still tucked away in closets in my parent's house! For the few my sister and I were able to sell, it certainly wasn't anywhere near the original price. If Rent the Runway had been around when I was in school, I would have had a lot less to stress about: Rent, Wear, Return, Done!

For those of you looking for a super glam dress ready for the red carpet, here are some of my favorite Rent The Runway dresses (with movie star vibes) for around $100:

Through Rent The Runway, you get to choose two sizes (in case one doesn't fit) and you don't have to worry about dry cleaning them afterwards. Plus, it doesn't have to go into the depths of your closet and waste away gathering dust. Keep that closet minimal, friends!

Coffee Shakin'

I don't exactly drink coffee for the caffeine effects. I don't even know that it gives me any more energy at all. I really just like the taste of it. Or maybe I like the taste of half and half and sweetening with a touch of coffee? Either way, I'm a fan of the flavor. All the coffees every single day, please!

That's why I had to go to Whataburger and try out the new coffee shake just as soon as it was announced. Ice cream? Milk? Coffee? Drive thru? I'm in!

First of all, if you've never had a Whataburger shake, I'm sorry. Second, they are handspun, super thick and the MOST delicious. The standard flavors are Vanilla, Chocolate and Strawberry. Coach always gets a large and won't even share one sip with me. It's that good!

The new coffee shake totally lives up to that hype as well. Occasionally, I have poured a little coffee on top of vanilla ice cream at home...that's what this is exactly like (I mean, I guess that is probably the ingredients, but with the special magic of the Whataburger handspin). So, basically it's what I've attempted to create before, but nothing I've achieved on my own. 

Basically, if you love coffee (or half and half) and you love ice cream (is this even a real question), you'll probably enjoy this new treat from Whataburger as much as I do.

PS: Does this mean we can get away with drinking a delicious milkshake at 9 a.m. in the morning? Because...I mean, it IS coffee afterall!
