love lists: july.

admittedly, july has not been a month of endless new beauty products. and you know, those are the kind of months i really enjoy. but, this month has certainly been good for a bunch of other reasons...

<----- oh, and here's a little post-it note i doodled earlier.

1. the tame nude lip.
i can't tell you how off-putting i find milky-white, dead-nude lips. for that reason, i've shied away from even attempting this particular lip look. but this month, i had a pinky-nude revelation, & i like it. here's my nude lip trick: apply very little product. this allows your natural [alive-looking] lip color show through with a healthy glow. a little gloss & you're ready to go, still looking like you have a pulse.

2. cover girl 'fairytale' lipstick.
i heard the hype surrounding this product, & i just didn't buy into it until i found this in my sister's makeup drawer. i will be wearing this shade to my cousin's wedding this weekend. need i say more?

3. lubriderm soothing relief daily lotion.
nothing - absolutely nothing - makes my skin feel as good as this lotion does. shout-out goes to justin for suggesting this brand. it was a great choice.

4. wearing my hair up.
maybe this was a result of starting my job in a medical setting. maybe i'm lazy. either way, i've been rocking an up-do almost every day, & loving every minute of it.

5. the cadillac keurig that dad has up at the office.
i have a soft spot for fancy machines that give me coffee.

6. gilmore girls.
reverting back to an old familiar favorite, & it feels so good.

7. bodycology toasted vanilla sugar lotion.
at a cost of next to nothing at your local target, this lotion that smells good enough to eat is a steal!

8. wearing scrubs every day.
another result of working in a medical setting, this uniform takes the stress out of morning-time madness.

9. the pearl studs i won in twirling clare's giveaway.
these babies barely leave my lobes. classic, over-sized, go-with-anything goodness. that's what they are.

10. motivation.
it's on, it's off, it's on again. right now,  all i care about is the fact that it's on.

i adore everything on this love list! what's not to love about coffee, gilmore girls, and lipstick?!

Gilmore Girls!!!!!! I just sent my DVD's back home with my mom in preparation for my big move and they will be sorely missed :) I miss wearing scrubs everyday. They were my wardrobe safety net for a year.

about me.

Hello! And welcome to siddathornton.
My name is Lauren. I am 29 years old. Here are a few random factoids about me & my life...
- I'm originally from Louisiana, but I live in North Carolina with my husband, Justin. We aren't from New Orleans. Every time we tell someone we're from Louisiana, this is immediately what they assume. We actually come from a town in northwest Louisiana - Shreveport - which may as well be Texas, it's so close to the state line.
- Due to my love of the written word, I majored in Journalism at Louisiana Tech University. Tech is located in the quaint town of Ruston, Louisiana, and I like to think that attending college in a small town shaped much of who I am today. And as much as I would have liked the overly-romaticized dream of becoming a professional writer to have come to fruition for me, I'm in the midst of a career change, via occupational therapy school.
- There are a few things for which I have an unhealthy obsession: reading, co…

readingFierce, by Aly Raisman. A couple of weeks ago, I finally finished Big Little Lies, by Liane Moriarty, which I really enjoyed.
writing a lot in my bullet journal, including adding photos and keepsakes. It's been a while since I've done this kind of journaling, and it really is my favorite.
listening to the Office while typing out this blog post. Nothing makes me feel better like this show does.
thinking that I am really glad that Justin and I built in some trip recovery time on the back end of our trek to Colorado. It really does take some time to get re-acclimated to the time zone you've returned to. We've both been feeling so tired since we got back.
smelling coffee and donuts. The breakfast of champions.
wishing for some tortilla soup today. I had some at a place called Hacienda Colorado in Denver. It was so good, and I've been craving it ever since.
hoping for a productive and joyful week ahead.
wearing pajamas, just like I have …

the sunday currently.

When I started blogging on siddathornton back in July of 2011, the beginning of my currently posts wasn't far off. I've long enjoyed compiling lists of what's going on in the moment, but I never thought about making it a link-up or an always-on-Sundays thing until September 16, 2012. As you can read in that post, I was elated, due to the responses I was getting from other bloggers, letting me know that they, too were doing "currently" posts and had decided to dedicate the writing of them to Sundays each week. Thus, The Sunday Currently was born, and I have currently penned over 100 posts, some with over 50 people linking up and sharing what they're up to, too. If you feel so inclined, please join! Let's celebrate the little moments of our lives that we never want to forget.
