One of my February Goals this month was to try a subscription box! I decided to give Stitch Fix a try because I just purged my closet of basically everything and wanted some new clothes. Stitch Fix is a pretty cool concept. Basically, you pay 20 dollars for each "Fix" and you can pick how frequently you want a Fix delivered (every month, every other month, or basically, whenever). You fill out a style profile, set a price range, link up your Pinterest boards and leave any notes to your stylist about what you are looking for. Each Fix comes with 5 pieces of clothes/accessories and you have three days to try them on and see what you like. Your original 20 dollars can . . .
All imaged c/o goodreads. I'm not off to a very good start for my reading goal of 75 books this year! I should be reading between 6-7 books a month and in January I only got through three! What? For someone who loves to read, that's not my best. Thankfully, I am already on track for February, so we'll just call January a fluke month! Number the Stars by Lois Lowry-★★★★ This story follows ten-year-old Annemarie who is living in Denmark during WWII. Her friend is a Jew and she becomes part of a plot to smuggle her family out of Denmark as the Nazis start searching for Jewish Families. I read this in a day while substituting for a friend's middle school . . .
A few weeks back, I ran into a girl who had the coolest paint splattered nail polish on her nails. When I asked her where she got her nail polish, she said she had ordered it online and that is was 15 dollars for the bottle! I almost fell out of my chair. I love nail polish, but I don't love it for half a gas tank's worth of money. I thought to myself: "there has got to be a drugstore version of that style of nail polish." So, off I went to the store! All products were bought with my own money and these reviews are all my own honest opinions! As I browsed the different brands and selections, I realized that I didn't really know which brand would be the best bang . . .
Today, I am linking up with Ashley, Katie and Shannon for their What's Up Wednesday link-up! Woohoo! I like the idea of doing a mid-week recap and getting ready to tackle on the rest of the week! What I loved about the past week -the upper 40's weather! It was sunny and in the high 40's this weekend in Idaho (IN FEBRUARY), which is about as rare as a fish on a bicycle. Dustin decided the weather was good enough to go get the motorcycle out of the storage unit, so we had quite a time pulling it out and getting it road ready again. It's supposed to stay this warm for the next few weeks, so we hope to get as many bike rides in as possible! What I'm looking . . .
This weekend was the three year mark of the day I left on one of the greatest adventures of my life. After getting my left knee totally replaced, courtesy of my tumor, I finally felt like I was ready to take on the world and shove it right back in cancer's face. I was going to take back my life and everything that cancer had told me that I would never be able to accomplish or do. So, as any logical early twenty year-old would do, I deferred from school for two semesters and went to live in China for five months. Why China? Well, I knew I wanted to study abroad and I found an amazing program called International Language Programs that was more like a "service . . .
