I am so thankful for my health, my friends, the roof over my head and the job that pays my bills. It's no simple thing, living your life without stress, but right now I can definitely say things could be worse.

*Yes I cooked this. It was totally worth the long - long - time it took.
**If I wasn't moving I'd probably cook again. Because (in all honesty) my turkey is the bomb diggity.

Shopping in someone else's closet

Moving has become the band of my existence this past few weeks. Going through and organizing 2+ years in one spot has been really overwhelming, especially when at the same time I'm not really allowing myself to buy new stuff. Don't get me wrong, I did just pick up the cape and dress from F21, but there's SO much more that I want. The reality of the situation though is that 1) I'm about to have a LOT less space and 2) moving is expensive (and my new rent is expensive!)!

Still I am who I am and I can't help but look, so why not spend some time on a few of my favorite style blogs?? i am Khatu and Wendy's Lookbook are incredible sources of inspiration and shopping lust for me, and right now these are a few of the things that call to me from their closets:

 Comfy Sweater/Fur Vest (left, right)

Leopard Print Scarf (left, right)

 Leather Jacket (left, right)

(I know - I know! It's not a specific item but D*MN do I wish I could layer like these two women! Though I do also want a layerable sweater vest.; 

Fall/Winter Accessories (top, middle, bottom)

If there was a magic wishlist fairy I'd say in the realms of actually possibility would be these two pairs of shoes:

Elara by Calvin Klein (Piperlime)

 R2 Lori Bootie (DSW)

I'll let you know if any of these turn out to be more than just pipe dreams! Hopefully no one's disappointed in me 'phoning it in' today but forgive me? I'm moving!

Rebel in that I said screw it and wore jeans to work. Not that amazing I know, but I was the epitome of comfort that day.

When it's someone else's birthday I figure it's time for fun but nothing too dramatic - it's their time to shine not mine :). This was a super easy look I put together and I loved the effect!

(The gold Milani pencil was used as a base for the e.l.f pigment but it ended up being mostly unnecessary as the pigment was almost the exact same color.)

What I thought about wearing out for Halloween. I didn't end up leaving the house and I don't think I love the makeup, so we'll see what happens Saturday.
