This weekend my boyfriend took me to Columbus, OH to see Cirque Du Soleil! It was his gift to me for our anniversary. We spent the whole day in Columbus, starting with a delicious brunch at a place called “Knead“. We chose this place because it was all freshly made with locally produced ingredients. It was a pretty cute place and the food was delicious! I had gingerbread pancakes — YUM!

This dress makes me so incredibly happy! The color is so vibrant and the full skirt is so fun to run around in. It kinda makes me feel like I’m wearing a costume, but I don’t care! I love it too much! It’s got to be the best thing I’ve ever found at a thrift shop. AND a bonus was that it was super cheap because the zipper was falling out. Took me all of 10 minutes to fix that!

After Brunch we walked to COSI!

It’s a super fun science museum I hadn’t been too since elementary school, and I was way excited to go back! We had tons of hands-on science-y fun. [PS. Brian loves that sweater and wears it everywhere lol :p]

There was a cool exhibit called “Progress”, and they had a whole 1950s town set up. We decided to take advantage of the 50s scenery since I was wearing a 50s dress, and snagged a few photos!

OKAY. So. Cirque Du Soleil. First off, let me tell you, it was absolutely one of THE most amazing things I’ve ever seen! Neither of us really knew what to expect, or if it would actually be cool, and it far exceeded both of our expectations! It was beautiful and impressive, the “clowns” were hilarious, and the acrobatic stunts were terrifying and flawless! The overall theme was actually kind of dark and eerie, which we loved, and the music and costumes made it feel like we were watching some little Russian circus in the middle of no where 100 years ago — amazing.

Basically, we had a great mini weekend get away. :] Sometimes, those are the best kinds of vacations!

I’m super excited that it’s December! Christmas-time is one of my faaavorite times of the year. Everything sparkles and smells like pine & fresh baked cookies.

Just got these boots in the mail this week! You may remember them from my November wish list earlier this month. They are aaamazing & I’m so glad I bought them. And this little red dress is perfect for dressing up or down. I’m excited to wear it this month because the bright red color makes me feel super Christmas-y!

I have loved the maiden braid hair style for so long, but every time I tried to rock it, I looked too milk-maidy [and not in a cute way lol]. I don’t have bangs, and I usually part my hair down the middle, and I think that’s why I didn’t like it. So, this time I decided to part my hair on the side and it did the trick! I will definitely be wearing my hair like this a lot in the future. It’s super easy to do and I’m always looking for new ways to wear my hair up and out of my face.
