Hair envy

So I have been dreaming of princess locks/Victoria Secret model hair ever since I chopped my own hair to shoulder length last winter. Now it's in that in between stage--not short, not long--but recently I have been positively lusting over Madelynn's hair over at Wide Eyed Legless. It's so cute and looks so easy to deal with every morning. Plus her adorable style and beautiful dog really just make the cake!

What do you think?

Curried Pumpkin Soup

As fall is coming to a close, pumpkin is still in full swing! We have already tried pumpkin coffee, pumpkin pecan instant oatmeal (I love you, Trader Joe's!), pumpkin muffins, pumpkin bread, the list is practically endless. But one thing I have not made yet this year is pumpkin soup.

A Beautiful Mess has an amazingly simple recipe for the tastiest, easiest soup in the world! It's curried pumpkin soup and it is delicious. Also, it takes about 4 ingredients and only about 20 minutes of your time. I told you. It's the best.

Now back to grad school applications and final papers. Gross.

Happy Thursday!

Gold and Oxblood

I have been obsessing over this and this gold rings lately! I love the dainty vibe of the chevron and the subtle statement that the triangle ring.

Ahh. Gushing!

This photo shoot from a Cup of Jo perfectly encompasses how I would want to wear the trend. The oxblood nails (my favorite for fall) go perfectly with the subtle gold, and the flannel scarf/light sweater just makes the outfit. 

Maybe I'll finally paint my nails and go buy those rings now...
