I_love_this_little_guy.

Monday:  Every day when Tardis disappears I know I can find him in one of Alex’s small bins. He’s always in there sleeping.

Tuesday: Another day at work, another outfit. It’s always a fun game to try and fight the desire to dress plain. I always feel good when I pull an outfit together!

Thursday: Today after work to of my friends and I ran yet another 5K race. Aimee (right) had messed up her foot during a marathon recently so she and I just walked. It brought me back to the days where I only walked races. It was amazing to see just how fast I used to be as I couldn’t get anywhere near my best walking time.

Friday: Today was my day off, so Alex and I bought some art supplies and spent the day outside.

Sunday: Today I wasn’t feeling all that happy. I just was in a very melancholy mood. Alex surprised me with Panera and chocolate! The fastest way to improve my day!

Spring/Summer Polish Picks

As I’ve said in posts past, I’ve become increasingly more obsessed with  nail polishes. That being said, my collection has grown quite a lot over the past couple of months. With spring underway and summer close behind it, I picked six of my favorite spring and summer nail polishes and filmed a video to share with you! Click the image below to watch!

My Week in Review: May 6 – May 12

I’ve decided that, in the absence of the 365 photo project, I want to start these “My Week in Review” posts to keep you up to date on my weekly activities. I’m an Instagram junkie (find me @steggycornelius), so it’s the best place to go to find images of my week. So I’ve selected a few of the photos from last week to tell you about what happened.

OOTD (3)

Monday: Today was an average day of school and work. Most week days I find myself in business attire, which can get boring so I try and spice it up with planning cute outfits in advance.

Dinner_at_a_park

Tuesday: After a boring day of work inside I decided to get Panera and go to a local park for dinner. It was such a beautiful evening and I even got to write a bit in my journal.

Another_fun_disc_golf_outing

Tuesday: Not long after I finished my dinner Alex called me asking if I wanted to go play disc golf. Although we didn’t get to play much disc golf, we did get to see this beautiful site on the lake.

China_Glaze_s_Re-fresh_Mint

Thursday: I’ve become a nail polish addict! Today I wore China Glaze’s Re-Fresh Mint.

OOTD_for_my_art_showcase_

Friday: This was the outfit I wore to the reception for the student showcase. I took a lot of time and effort planning out what I wanted to wear because I was very proud and excited to have one of my photographs on display!

Friday: Alex and I at the art gallery standing next to my photo. I love my “man in the bowtie” (which is also the name of the photo!). I vlogged on Friday which you can watch here.

Saturday: I participated in my first Color Run! I love this photo with my best friend Lauren because the Before and After is just crazy! I vlogged on Saturday which you can watch here.

Saturday: After a long nap and a couple of showers I went to Walmart to pick up a few things. This new nail polish found its way into my cart. I’ve never heard of the brand “Flower” before. This is in the color “May Flowers.”

Sunday: I received an email from a bride who ordered ten of these bracelets from Alex and my etsy shop for her wedding. I thought I would never hear back from her, but she sent me a series of wedding photos with my bracelets in them! It was such an amazing thing to see something I made on a stranger during such an important event in a woman’s life.

Check back next week Monday for another “My Week in Review” post to see what I’ve been up to!

Current Obsessions: Disc Golfing

Alex and I have started disc golfing nearly every day for the past week. Before this last week I have never played! Needless to say I’m not very good. I don’t throw the disc very far and am scared of losing my bright orange disc in the woods and having to get a new one. However I can see myself improving every day. It’s also a really great way to be active and enjoy the nice weather. We have two different courses near us and my favorite location has some amazing views when you go down to the beach side!

Outfit of the Day: Business Blacks & Whites

photo (6)

 

Working at the university every day has really challenged me to find outfits that are appropriate, but also wearable for the entire day of classes and other activities. I recently inherited this bird shirt from my older sister and eagerly wanted to create an outfit around it. I paired it with a long black pencil skirt (an appropriate office length).

Outfit of the Day: First Week on the Job

photo(1)

I’ve quickly discovered that dressing for a university job is a lot harder than anticipated. My colleagues walk a fine line between business professional and business casual, and I have yet to get my sea legs. I also go to work straight from class so trying to find an outfit that’s suitable for walking from class to class but also for a desk job is even more difficult. On my third day of work I opted for this more business-y approach by wearing grey slacks, with some sneaker-like shoes to try and dress it down.
