Joules Rainboots - A Review

Hiya everyone!

I thought I'd pop in here and tell you about a product I received last month to test out in the winter. They're my rubber booties from England, and they're quite charming. I had the opportunity to wear them out on a few chilly days, and some snowy ones. I'd definitely err on the side of chilly and rainy, as the material doesn't lend itself as well to retaining heat when trudging through snow. I'm also worried about the design getting ruined with all the salt we have on the streets. Speaking of design, there are some fabulous ones to choose from on their website (check it out here Joules). They change every season, and each one is cuter than the next. For those of you who have scrawny little legs, like moi, the leg opening of the boot is quite large. I still haven't found leg warmers that I feel compliment the boot, but they would help take up some of the gaping space. Nevertheless, they are beautiful!

The skinny leg struggle is real...

Cheerio!

Hi everyone!

I'm now finishing my second week on surgery, and boy is it tough. Nevertheless, I'm doing lots of learning, and getting my monthly reality check on how vast a repertoire of knowledge I need to become a good doctor. After brutal pimping sessions, I tell myself "Rome wasn't built in a day" and hit the books for as many hours as possible before bed. This 4:15am wake up time is not my cup of tea, but many have it worse. I can't wait to see what stories I collect by the end of the 8 weeks!! (Aside - I will be posting my Pediatrics Rotation in Review once my marks go up, which won't be for another month.)

Here are my weekly favorites


My new agenda (link here)
  It is small enough to carry in my purse, there's just enough space for daily reminders and a collection of memories/quotes, and most of all it's freaking gorgeous. The images throughout the planner are stunning and Parisian. Flipping through it makes me happy. Take a look at more pictures by clicking the link above :D


Cat cuddles
  Hanz took a nap with me a few days ago white my bf watched the MMA fight; it was purrfect.

Fleece lined tights
  I now have three pairs, and they've been lifesavers!!! Thanks H!

Vanilla Caramel Creamer - it's seriously delicious.

Getting to spend a day with the anesthesiologist during surgeries. I have a whole new appreciation for the field. If anyone is interested in some of the cool procedures they do, check out ultrasound guided nerve blocks and pentobarbitol coma.
 
   That's all for now! What have you been loving this week, and what are your plans for le weekend?
Cheers,
