It never ceases to amaze me how a vast change in temperature for just one day can completely change my sleeping habits and how I dress. While during the Spring and Summer, about 6 hours of sleep is perfect for me. After one cold day, nothing less than 8 hours is needed to feel even half human for my early morning work schedule. As for clothing, nothing but my darker shades of clothing "look right" anymore. You how you just get that feeling when your standing in front of a mirror looking at your outfit? Well, any light colored even some grays pants, skirts and dresses just don't seem to work for me anymore. I'll put them on each morning with the good intention to finally wear them... but have yet to actually make it out of the door with them on.

{TV Show: Sherlock. Love this show... I don't quite understand why there are only three episodes in each season but I can not wait for Season 3!}

{Food: Homemade Brownie Bites. Be forwarned... if you ask me to bring something to a party/event, this is what I'm going to bring. Be prepared.}

{Birchbox | August}

August's Birchbox was kind of a fail for me. While I simply love the Viva la Juicy La Fleur perfume sample, the rest of the items in this box were a miss. I have no plans to start wearing a full face of makeup, so the Stila Stay all day 10-in-1 HD was a no-go for me... although my friend whom I give all the makeup products in these boxes to give this sample top marks. I can't even imagine having to use the Designer Fashion tape. I feel like I dress far too conservatively to have a need for such an item. However, I do have an major Christmas party coming up this year, so I guess I could drop this tape in my bag before heading out of town. The Brightening Cleanser is a nice gentle cleanser however I have not noticed much of a brightening difference in my skin. I have been using the cleanser daily. Birchbox dropped in an extra {or a Find, as they call them} in the August box. I got an Schick Hydro Silk razor... although I don't use razors, I'm sure my sister will enjoy it once I can finally remember to take it with me so I can give it to her.
