I have an H&M within 15 kilometres of me now.
After my spin class on Friday, my mom and I hoped in the car and headed to our H&M for the first time ever and I was just freaking out - I was that excited. Because I stupidly forgot to bring a pair of shoes besides my running shoes, I kind of looked awful roaming the store for a good hour or so, but there were a ton of people there, so I don't think they noticed my horrendous outfit. Not that I'd care anyway.
As far as purchases go, I didn't go crazy because that would not be good on my momma's wallet. I ended up getting two tiger sweaters (pictured above) that were actually on sale because of the grand opening. SCORE. (You can get them here)
Crazy Cat Lady Alert!
(possibly a future DIY)
I've never thought of myself as a crazy cat lady, but hey! Things change. I probably don't exactly qualify as one because I don't actually own a cat, but lately, I've been very oddly obsessed with anything with a feline-esque feel to it such as beanies with cat ears, cat rings, the Féline sweaters... And the list goes on and on and on. I just love cats, especially Meredith Swift.
Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day.
There's just something so comforting and relaxing about having a steaming bowl of oatmeal topped with fresh fruit with a glass of almond milk every morning. It's been a routine of mine for a few months now and has become one of my favourite parts of the day. Most of the time, it's pretty early in the morning, so I usually have the house all to myself, which is really nice. Even though I have to get to school and only have about half an hour on my luckiest days to enjoy my breakfast while simultaneously catching up on blog posts or reading, it's still a time of the day that I treasure and look forward to every morning. Sometimes, when I can't fall asleep, I'll just say to myself, "Just go to sleep. You can have your oatmeal in the morning." I'm just that weird.
Countdown to Hallowe'en
Honestly, I'm not a huge fan of Hallowe'en. There's always some bad memory associated with each Hallowe'en in recent years for me, mostly involving how sucky my costume was.
This year, on the other hand, I am freaking ecstatic. I guess I'm cheating a bit because I'm not actually that excited about Hallowe'en itself, but rather what's going to happen on that day. I don't think I've ever mentioned it before, but you've probably noticed at some point (or not because I might not have ever smiled with my mouth open) that I actually have braces. I've had them on since the end of fifth grade, so that's about three years and a half that I've been wearing these suckers. On the 31st, I am finally getting them off and will finally be free of those horrible (but completely life-changing) things.
Something else that's a bit different this year is that I'm not actually going to go trick-or-treating. A few of my friends think that it's completely ridiculous (you know who you are), but I'm actually really stoked about getting to spend some time with my mom just handing out candy to little kids dressed up in adorable costumes.
Are you celebrating Hallowe'en this year? If so, how? What's your favourite time of the day? Thoughts on H&M? Let me know in a comment below!
