Travel Packing Tips // Sheepskin Jacket // Canadian Tuxedo // Brazilian Sugaring // DIY Fix Cracked iPhone Screen
Today would be the perfect day to stay in bed, watch movies, and sip something hot to avoid running around in the rain all day down here. Instead, I'm sending emails, scrolling through spreadsheets, and searching for my next plane ticket. Although today's been a little on the dull side, there have been some things that have caught my eye and given me a lot to consider. Check out this week's Monday Musings!
Travel Packing Tips for Your Next Trips: fun fact for you guys-- I'll be on a plane every other weekend for the next two months beginning this Sunday. Needless to say, I'll be spending a large sum of money on tickets and other transportation and I'm not really sure how I feel about that (insert no see monkey emoji). Besides figuring out how to snag a ticket for cheap, I've got to figure out how to maximize luggage space since I'm going to be back and forth so frequently. I'll be using tips from this article by StyleCaster to help me pack for my upcoming trips!
I'm really interested in finding a cool, edgy jacket for the Fall/Winter and I found this genuine sheepskin jacket. The detailed quilting/ribbing on the shoulders and arms gives this jacket some edge. If I can hold out until the price drops a bit more, I'll snag it!
Even though Fall is officially upon us and I'm still trying to build my boot/bootie collection, I'm still looking for the perfect chambray shirt so I can pull off the ever present Canadian Tuxedo. One of my favorite bloggers (pictured above), Katey McFarlan (Hellman), pulls it off seamlessly! Medium wash denim? Check! Light wash chambray top? Check! Casual tank? Check! Chunky platform neutral sandals? Check!
Now, what I'm about to mention may be fairly new to most of you...it was to me! Brazilian sugaring! Haven't heard of it? It's suppose to be this less painful, more organic alternative to waxing. I'm doing my research on this ancient beauty ritual before I test it out. If you're interested in Brazilian sugaring, read a little bit about it here.
Outside of traveling, denim on denim, waxing myself with a lukewarm sugary mix, I have serious First World problems. I cracked the screen on my iPhone almost a month ago and have yet to get it fixed. I'm not too keen on paying someone $60-$100 to replace the screen, so I'm looking in to fixing it myself. There are lots of kits available online that I can order. Let's just hope I can follow this step-by-step guide and all turns out well!
Lots to consider over the next few weeks! Is there anything that's caught your eye recently?
