13 Things to do When You’re Sick.

I got sick today and had to get a shot in my butt! Turns out I have a sinus infection, and I had to pay a visit to the doctor. But…!! When I got there, I made friends with the nurses and she helped me come up with a list of fun things to do while I was home sick (I wish I remembered her name). Who knew the doctor could be fun?! Missing her already…

My list:

  1. Binge watch MasterChef
  2. Eat ice cream
  3. Put a warm compress on your face
  4. Snuggle with your doggies
  5. Watch Harry Potter (starting from the first movie!)
  6. Take a bubble bath
  7. Listen to a sound machine
  8. Load up on water and Gatorade
  9. Drink soup
  10. Instagram stalk people you forgot about in high school
  11. Look at Amazon on your phone and create a giant wish-list
  12. Read a book!
  13. Sleep for as many hours as you can, duh.

Thanks for stoping by, lovies! This was totally impromptu.

Fedorable Hats

Processed with VSCO with c5 preset

I’ve always wanted to rock a cool hat, but every time I put one on my head I think, “UUUGH! This looks so weird on me!” Baseball hats, fedoras, floppy hats—you name it, I couldn’t make it work. My hair is too thick and curly, my ears poke out on the sides, plus my head sweats more than I’d like to admit. So, every time I’d see a cute hat perfectly positioned on its mannequin in the store, I’d walk straight by without a second thought. But I’m here to tell you that I was wrong to give up on styling hats so quickly. Hats are my greatest “new” discovery and there’s one out there that will work for everyone! Not only do they protect you from the sun, they’re perfect for bad hair days (praise!) and they add that special touch to your look that ties everything together. Here is me in my cool fedora that I bought from Tobi.

I straightened my hair for this look because, while I love my curly hair, sometimes the thickness makes my head sweat, or gives me a funny fit. If you have curly hair like me, I encourage you to still give it a shot! Don’t be afraid to play around with different hair styles. Rock that low bun, too! Here are a few examples of fedoras that I’ve found on the web if you want to try a similar look.

This is actually the exact hat I’m wearing in my pictures. I love this hat because you can wear it with dresses, t-shirts, rompers, overalls, unicorn playsuits, pug onesies, etc! Okay… maybe I exaggerated just a little bit – but it does go with everything! Play around with how you want to style it. Personally, I like to wear it on the back of my head, but it also looks great centered on the top or to the side. If you like the look, get it here!

If I didn’t already order a fedora on ASOS two days ago, I would definitely buy this one at the drop of a hat (get it?). It’s just as versatile as a black fedora, and it’s the perfect shade for summer! I think this color looks especially great with blue and red, but it will match all colors and patterns. Go crazy! And get it hur.

I couldn’t resist adding this one in because it’s the most recent fedora hat I’ve bought. I’m so excited to get it in the mail! Unlike the other examples, this fedora is made of straw which is more lightweight and breathable. Perfect for those beach days or grabbing brunch with friends! Just be gentle while handling because it is not as sturdy as felt and will rip easier if it’s poked and roughed around in your bag. Let’s be twins and get your hat here!

And viola! There’s a ton of different styles of hats out there, and in those categories, there are even more options. If one style of hat doesn’t look good on you, try another! Make it your own, and show off your new find. Rock those hats, ladies and gents!
