Story of A Wednesday


A bit of an outfit of the day! Ran a few errands this morning, picking up groceries and other uninteresting household items and such in preparation for my final semester (starts Monday)! I picked up this sweater a few days ago at C Wonder, an adorable store that reminds me a lot of Kate Spade but preppier. I got the sweater in a large, since I like the slightly oversize fit of a chunky sweater. It does run a bit short, so the larger size made up for the length as well. 

C wonder It's somewhat of a lifestyle shop with everything in every color from sweaters to jewelry to dishes to a moped! They have amazing sales, currently 50% off all sale items. 

Tank: Target
Leggings: J.Crew
Boots: Willow//Banana Republic 


Started the day off right with fruit and oatmeal. College and campus has done quite a number on my figure (put on 20 pounds! Absolutely horrifying), and I'm on my way to losing the weight (with no intention of  finding it ever again). With healthy eating and exercise, I'm halfway there!


When it comes to exercise, I'm usually pretty good about it, except when I get busy. Then it ends up on the back burner. I'm going to make sure I get in my exercise daily, even if its just parking farther away, or always taking the stairs. I also have a nasty habit of buying magazines. It's totally unnecessary, but I always get sucked in. Maybe I should sign up for a subscription, it'd be so much easier on my wallet!


It's about that time for graduate exams, which means hardcore study time. Excited and intimidated about the Kaplan class starting next week, butttt one must do what she has to do. Bring it on MCAT.


Picked up this top from Lucky Brand. They're having a fantastic sale at the moment - 50% off sale items! This sale seems to be the trend with a bunch of stores at the mall, and I've been taking full advantage! I'm not usually a fan of Lucky Brand clothes (though I do love how it says "lucky you" on the fly of their jeans), but I thought this one is cute. Figure I'd tuck it into skinny jeans or shorts. The oversize, drape-y fit along with the velvet fabric hangs nicely.



And lastly, it's time for whiter teeth! My teeth aren't yellow by any means, but they're not as bright as they used to be. Maybe it's due to my Starbucks habit in the last year or so. I picked up these White Strips at Ulta earlier. These were on sale as well for $45 (usually $55). There's also a $3.50 off any $10 or more purchase that can be printed out from their website.

I've used these strips once before in high school, and they worked fabulously. These ones are to be used for 30 minutes a day for 20 days. The ones I had before were 30 minutes, twice a day for 14 days. I'm not sure if I can double up on the strips per day to make them work faster or not. I do know that they make my teeth a bit sensitive so that probably isn't a good idea anyway. This is also a sign that I need to work on my patience haha.

Have you used these? Is there a stark difference between the 4 and 5 whitening power?

  2. That sweater looks so comfy and warm :) It looks great with the leggings and boots! I'm hopeless at exercise - wish I could be good with it like you. Never tried whitening strips for my teeth, but I would be curious to give them a go and see how well they work!
