Boston Babe

My Confidence

This past weekend was one of my close friends’ 23rd birthday! She lives in Boston and since I was home for the holiday, we decided to go up for it! My boyfriend and I stayed at the InterContinental Hotel for the night. It was such a nice hotel! I’m so mad I forgot to save the videos and pictures I had of the room. She had her birthday celebration at Cure Lounge which was only a 8 minute Uber from our hotel. The night was filled with dancing, liquor and laughs. Can’t get much better than that. Definitely a night to remember! I’ve added some pictures of what my boyfriend and I wore out that night (outfit details below) and a video of the birthday girl, of course!

Pretty Pink Pants

My Confidence

I know I listed those pink latex pants on my wish list a couple posts back, but guysss…I found another pair of light pink latex pants that I completely fell in love with. I bought them on Meshki (an Australian fashion brand) and it was actually my first purchase from them! I really liked the quality and my package was delivered pretty fast! I would definitely order from them again. I put together a bomb outfit to go with these pants for my best friends birthday outing. Here are the pictures to prove it:

Sugar Birthday

My Confidence

Last weekend was my best friend’s birthday. She decided to have her birthday dinner at the Sugar Factory at Pentagon City. This restaurant was really an experience. There is loud, fun music and their drinks are the best! SO yummy and they’re strong enough that they are worth the price.

The food was decent, but I truly think people go there for the experience. If you have your birthday there you are able to chose a dessert and they come out with sparklers on top of your dessert to the song of your choice and they hype you up as you dance to their birthday song. It was a really fun time in there. We went on a Friday so there was a lot of birthdays also being celebrated that night. It kind of added to the experience though. It was like sharing your birthday with other people in the restaurant. Overall a really good time. Here are some pictures from our time at the Sugar Factory!

Cold Weather & Cold Symptoms

My Complicated Life

With the change in seasons, DC has been getting colder and colder by the day. Before I went to Howard, I swear the cold weather didn’t affect me as much as it does now. Rhode Island is usually about 10 degrees colder than DC’s temperature. When I started living in DC, needless to say I’ve been spoiled.

Well, with these new cold temperatures, I’ve also developed a cold. I woke up yesterday with a stuffy nose and sore throat. OF COURSE I have to get sick the one weekend I actually have plans. This Friday is my best friend’s 23rd birthday and it is Howard’s Homecoming weekend. I’ve been stocking up on all cold remedies and they have actually been working! I wanted to share with you all 5 of my top common cold remedies, since a lot of people I know are getting colds during the change of seasons! (I’m nothing close to a doctor, these remedies just work for me and could work for you too!)

  1. Raspberry Emergen-C (1000mg Vitamin C)
  2. Stash Tea Lemon Ginger Herbal Tea (P.S. I put extra lemon slices and honey with the tea bag in my mug before pouring the boiling water in!) -The ginger in the tea helps sooth a sore throat as well.
  3. Ricola Natural Herb Cough Drops Original Flavor (These are really helpful if you have a sore throat and I just like the way they taste.)
  4. Vicks Dayquil & Nightquil – Whenever I have a cold this is my go to medicine. Always helps with my cold symptoms and gets me through the day and gets me through a good night sleep.
  5. Zicam Cold Ultra RapidMelts – Helps shorten the duration of your cold! I hate being sick and this just help shorten the time! It also helps reduce my cold symptoms.
