Who has two thumbs and had THE BEST SUNDAY EVER?!
(This is where I should post a picture of me and my thumbs. But I don’t have that picture. So just imagine it.)
Sometimes, going to grad school is an expensive life- and time-suck that seems impossible and endless. Other times, your classes are fulfilling and your field work makes you feel like you’re affecting change and you geek out over research. And then, there are other times when your Graduate and Professional Student Association decides to treat you to a day of glam that truly embodies the concept of “Treating yo’ self“.
In honor of the Oscars on Sunday night, they threw us a little “Diva Party” which made for the ultimate Sunday Funday. Hair, nails (which we skipped in honor of trying on crazy expensive outfits), and makeup. I’m in there like swimwear.
My partner-in-crime, Martha, and I took part in several of the services. And even MORE of the macarons.
I think between the two of us, we probably enjoyed 10-14 of those bad boys. Pistachio, as always, was my favorite. And since I had big plans for later (namely, a tasty bottle share with some of Philly’s most fun beer geeks), I figured I’d get all sorts of dolled up. Go hard or go home, right?
And, when in Rome (if Rome was the home of incredibly expensive and beautiful clothing), do as the Romans do.
Do the Romans play dress up?
I hope so.
I admittedly didn’t have enough spare cash lying around to shell out for some Red Carpet Gown…. but if I did, I think I’d go back and get that dress. And then wear that dress ALL THE TIME to make sure I got the most bang for my buck.
Unfortunately, all that dress-up left me without time to get a manicure…. maybe I’ll find one somewhere in the Dominican Republic this weekend. I still left feeling like a total diva.
What’s your favorite way to “Treat Yo Self”?
I know some folks like Fine Leather Goods. I’m personally partial to fancy cheese…

That looks like so much fun! I’ve always wanted to throw an Oscars party and make people dress up.
I vote that you should always make people dress WAY up for any party. But that’s just the boss bitch in me.
You saw it on Sunday. Cantillons and Bruerys and Three Floyds and Perennials and on and on and on…
Sours and stouts and IPAs, OH MY!
Fun! I got a haircut (it’s like a 1/16″ trim) Monday PM and was telling my hair guy Dean that I really would like to just stop by every AM on my way to work for a blow-out and style!
sometimes 1/16″ is all you need. That, and a daily blow out. It’s a fact.
Ummm HOLY COW Jordan you look so hot! I love the side braid and that dress- oh my goodness.
It’s not the best, but I always treat myself with yummy food or rest days. OR Hulu/Netflix benders.
I haven’t had my hair did since I was a freshman in high school for a dance! Your day looks like so much fun 🙂
