AM Coffee Talk #15 - Eyelash Extensions, Re-Reading Old Harry Potter FanFiction, and More!
Wow, y'all. Hello March! Can you believe two months of 2018 are already gone?! I know I definitely can't. I mention how fast time is moving in both this post about things we should stop doing this year and our 3 month wedding update.
I want to also quickly apologize for not having a Saturday Morning Coffee post last weekend. Saturday became interesting REAL QUICK when Justin and I went out to get groceries and breakfast and ended up having to get a flat tire fixed which took forever! I sat down later in the evening to write the post and it just wasn't working out so I scrapped it. I know I say this all the time but I really love these posts, probably the most. The casual vibe is just good for the soul.
ONE | Vintage Clothing
Okay, be honest, Y'all knew this was coming. Finding this Tina Turner sweatshirt in my closet was probably the best thing to ever happen to me. Okay, okay, I know I'm being dramatic but it has awakened a passion that I didn't know I had for vintage clothing. I guess it really started with the leather coat I purchased off of Etsy for Justin's Valentine's Day gift but I am now obsessed with finding thrift items to incorporate into my wardrobe. I may even start my own vintage shop on Etsy... as soon as I can think of a good name.
I mentioned in my last Saturday Morning Coffee post that I had started re-reading the Harry Potter series for the first time in a long ass time. With that has come a revival of my Harry Potter obsession and one of my favorite YouTube channels seems to be experiencing sort of the same thing. Aline recently did a video where she reread chapter of her Harry Potter fanfiction and it is actually pure gold. Cringy in the best way. I've been trying to find any of the ones I used to write but I've forgotten where they are and three or four computers later, it seems they're lost. Which is probably for the best, to be honest. If you're looking for a good laugh, go watch the video and subscribe to their channel while you're there. They are gold and deserve SO many more subscribers.
THREE | Tumblr
Like the rebirth of my Harry Potter obsession, I have found myself falling back in love with Tumblr the past few weeks. I wish I hadn't deleted my old account where I actually had a following... but you live and you learn. Tumblr is where I care a lot less about aesthetics and let my nerd flag fly. If you have a Tumblr, leave it below so we can all follow each other!
FOUR | Eyelash Extensions
I got eyelash extensions for the first time last week and I am obsessed! It's amazing how much of a difference they make. I don't normally do much on a daily basis anyway but not having to worry about doing really anything to my face in the morning other than washing it has made a huge difference in my morning routine and how I get ready (which I just did two videos about, linked below)! They really just make my eyes pop and I could not be happier. Way better than paying to get your nails done, in my opinion.
FIVE | Once Upon a Time
I watched Once Upon a Time when it first came out but man did I forget a lot of things! I'm also not sure when or why I stopped watching it but after my cousin mentioned it a few weeks ago, I knew I had to start watching it again. Cue the binge watching. I had a snowday yesterday which meant I finally got to season two.
