Weekend Recap – November 6

//not sponsored, affiliate links included

I brought tons of souvenirs…and the flu back with me from NYC, sadly, so this weekend has been more sweatpants, tea and Netflix (Stranger Things 2!) than shopping and fun times. But that’s okay, sometimes I just get so burnt out from life that I need a solid two days to sleep and eat a whole container of pomegranate seeds in one sitting!

I Went to NYC for 3 Days and Almost Didn’t Come Back!

I just got back this week from a few days in NYC and holy cow, was it an experience! I decided to take a leap of faith this year and book my first airplane trip ever – next stop, LaGuardia airport! I’m not going to lie, I was really nervous to go – traveling with food allergies is never easy, especially when you have seven of them. But it actually was not as difficult as I thought it would be and I ended up having a lot of fun and took some really gorgeous photos!

My Daily Fall Uniform

My shopping habits have done a complete 180 over the past two years – I used to hoard Kohl’s clearance sale finds and my closet had 75+ dresses (picture that in an apartment!) but now I’ve stopped buying just to have a lot of options and switched to a few J.Crew staple pieces that I really love and wear much more often so I really get my money’s worth – like a few of the new favorites I just purchased which have basically turned into my daily fall uniform.

I have to say, it’s a little freeing to donate $375 worth of items from your closet and replace it with a few classic pieces. If nothing else, it’s easier to move now!

About six and a half years ago I was not “Kelly Baum”. I was not a blogger, I was not someone who did things outside of their comfort zone and I was definitely not someone with any kind of  ambition. A far cry from the person you see today! Sometimes the biggest things that propel you forward in life start out as the smallest things, it only matters what you say those three little letters to…”yes!”

Weekend Recap – October 16

//not sponsored, affiliate links may be included

This weekend was rainy, blustery and filled with blankets and movies! I watched the entirety of War and Peace on Hulu while I did my cleaning and homework and my goodness, it is a beautiful period piece. I have not yet had the time to read War and Peace but it is definitely on my post-grad “freedom” to-do list. There’s no time like fall to catch up on everything on my watchlist, I just added Grantchester from Masterpiece Theater on PBS and I’m already excited for next weekend!
