My Chic Week: February 5- 11

HAPPY FRIDAY Y'ALL! I apologize for this post going up a bit later than usual, I had so much homework last night and wasn't able to finish this post until this afternoon but I was able to publish it this afternoon!


Last Friday was definitely a hectic day as we had Mass and shorter classes. I also had a test and a quiz along with a few things to take of for NHS so it seemed like I was running around all day. After school, I ran a few errands and grabbed a Starbucks before heading home to do a little bit of homework and relax.


I slept in on Saturday morning before eating a yummy breakfast of Panera muffin-tops and working on a bit of homework. Early in the afternoon, I headed downtown to meet up with Annaliese at Amelie's in NoDa. I have had Amelie's pastries before have yet to actually go there and it is such the cutest bakery! Annaliese and I had such a great time chatting and, of course, indulging in some delicious pastries (I had the salted caramel brownie, a chocolate cinnamon macaron, and a coconut macaroon- they were all so delicious and I have no shame in saying I ate all of them!).

We decided that we also wanted to check out Not Just Coffee, a coffee place often frequented by Caitlin of Southern Curls & Pearls (who also lives in Charlotte!). I had a bit of a difficult time finding Not Just Coffee but my Vanilla Sugar Latte was so amazing that it made up for it!


After hanging out for a while at Not Just Coffee and taking outfit pictures in uptown (see my post here and Annaliese's here), I had to head back home since I had a babysitting job that night! I had such a fun time with the kiddos I babysat and since I didn't babysit too late at night, I blogged for a bit once I got back home!

Sunday was pretty low-key as I worked on homework all day, shot some outfit pictures for Tuesday's post, caught up with my parents who got back from their trip that afternoon, and, of course, watched the Super Bowl (bummed over the Panthers loss!).

C, my dog, wanted to see what the fuss was all about while my brother took outfit pictures for me Sunday afternoon!

Monday, as always, was quite a hectic day and feels like I was all over the place all day! Luckily, I had my Faith Formation class in the afternoon, which always brightens up Mondays for me! I also love dressing up for my class each week!


Honestly, Tuesday was not my favorite day out of this week as I just seemed to be overwhelmed with everything I had to do and honestly just in a weird mood! It was Fat Tuesday so you better believe that I ate all the sweets within reach (my AP Lit class had a little party and I don't think I've ever eaten so much in such a short period of time!). I had an orthodontist appointment that afternoon (so thrilled that it was my last one ever!) and then spent the rest of the evening working on homework.

Wednesday and Thursday were pretty busy as I had a lot of assignments to work on that were due at the end of this week! Safe to say I am so excited to sleep in this weekend!

On my radar this week:

1. I crossed two items off of my 101 in 1001 list this week: going to Amelie's French Bakery (mentioned above) and then getting a Fitbit! My parents both received a Fitbit Charge from the event they attended in Hawaii and since I bought my mom the flex for Christmas, she gave the Charge to me! I have loved playing around with it this past week (it definitely has motivated to walk around and get my steps in every day) and I'm thinking of doing a review on it sometime soon!

2. I just bought this bikini at Target this week and I'm obsessed! Can't wait till spring break so I can wear it!

3. Did y'all see that Instagram now allows you to switch between multiple accounts?!?! So helpful for bloggers with multiple Instas (be sure to follow me here)!


5. One of my favorite accounts to follow on Twitter is Town & Country (be sure to follow me on Twitter as well) and I couldn't believe this article with everything in the Oscars Gift Bag (that's valued at 232,000!)

Be sure to check out my posts from this past week:


Have a great weekend!
