Weekend Favorites

[No. 1] Having a roommate who likes candles, is something I'm thankful for. If fact, she burns them more than I do, and we've been enjoying fallish candles in the last couple of weeks. Not long ago I was in Anthropologie and splurged to pick up this favorite autumn scent. Do any of you have favorite go-to's for candles in the fall?

[No. 2] My roommate got her undergrad degree in music, and started grad school this fall. It's quite lovely hearing her practice Bach on the piano. She says she's not good at it, but she is. :)

[No. 3 and No.4] Having coffee and quiet moments are things that aren't taken for granted in the life of a college student. :) While dependant on coffee is not something I'm remotely close to, it does bring some warmth on a chilly autumn morning as does a cup of tea before bedtime.

And yes, quiet moments for books. My life is surrounded by them, and while they primarily consist of college textbooks, I was sure to bring some favorites with me from home. The Tenant of Wildfell Hall was an excellent read, and I'm close to finishing Agnes Grey. They are a bit lighter than other books the Bronte sisters are well-known for, but certainly not less engaging.

Weekend Favorites + Loving Mint

[No. 1] A wallet, wristlet, or whatever one carries that contains important stuff.

[No. 2] There is little time in the morning for me to spend alot of time in the mirror, so it's mascara and either a scarf or necklace that are my daily go-to's.

[No. 3] If I'm coherent enough early in the morning, I may even slip in some pretty earrings. This pair came from an etsy seller, and I usually wear these at least twice a week.

[No. 4] Yay for pretty toes! This color is from Essie and the exact shade is escaping me. It's Friday and my brain is fried. (And I haven't even practiced yet today...)

Happy weekend! :)
