Before they fall…

…I wanted to snap a few last pictures of the beautiful leaves on the trees and on the ground. It’s supposed to snow tonight (up to a foot by the end of tomorrow!), and that will be the last of many of these leaves.

On the bright side, I get to wear my cute snow boots tomorrow!

Simple rings

I’m obsessed with thin, simple rings. I’ve seen them everywhere from other blogs (like here) to Pinterest to Etsy. They are lovely on their own or stacked, and pretty cheap too!

Perfect pizza picnic

Pizza on Friday after class has become a tradition with my boyfriend, especially since we discovered that we could get one for $6 (discount for being students). Today happened to be an even better deal since we got our pizza for free! Apparently they forgot to sticker it, so we lucked out. Chautauqua is a beautiful park (park is a bit of an understatement) near the CU Boulder campus. We picnic-ed there right beneath the Flatirons.

Colorado is so beautiful!

Newspaper nails

So, I did it. Newspaper nails.

…and I love them!

Super easy, much more so than I thought. I painted my nails with Essie Sand Tropez (pretty close to the color of newspaper paper), dipped them in astringent (we didn’t have rubbing alcohol, which I have heard is the normal form of ethanol used for this), pressed a piece of newspaper on my nails, removed it, and voila!

So fun, I’ve been staring at them all day!
