Happy Wednesday! Work It Wednesday will have to be postponed because it turns out I still wear scrubs everyday on ob/gyn! I wear blue every single day (see first photo from my instagram -lauralacquer - for an idea). My real clothes is feeling unloved, my closet's all dusty. It's alright though, because yesterday, on my first full day of ob/gyn, I delivered my first baby. Now, I fully expected to just watch this whole process, but next thing I knew I was the one with my hands down there instructing my patient in Spanish to push as the midwife told me what to do. Unreal. In a matter of seconds a woman went from being completely alone and in tremendous pain (she had no support there besides us) to having the only thing in the world she needed and bursting into tears of joy. It was beautiful. The second photo is of course not me or the baby I delivered (mine was more slimy) but you get the idea.
Just a few snapshots from my weekend - or really from my Sunday evening. Saturday was spent working in the Emergency Room, and most of Sunday was spent trying to study for this Surgery Shelf (our big exam at the end of each clerkship). Sunday evening was spent out eating and watching the Pats game, and finally spray-painting my little pumpkin gold :)
I hope you all spent your weekends the way you wanted and are ready for another week! I'm looking forward to being done with this exam today and then checking lots off of my to-do list!
Happy Friday! Just sharing a simple outfit for date night out. I hope you all have lovely weekends! Mine will be spent working in the ED and studying for my surgery shelf (sounds like last weekend, huh?).
I'm pretty sure I haven't worn flare jeans since I was in high school. But something about this fall made me feel the need to bring these back into my life and I'm glad I did. I started easy with a boot cut, but boy do I love these jeans! What about you ladies with only skinnies in the closet; are you going to give flare jeans another shot?
Happy long weekend! Hope you all have some relaxing and fall celebrating planned for the weekend. I work in the ED all day tomorrow and will be studying the rest of the time, but will squeeze in as much fun as I can!
PS - I put this picture up on Instagram (@lauralacquer) yesterday evening and many of you had questions about my curly hair routine. It varies all of the time, but I always love my conditioner rinse and coconut oil (read about them here). For this style I just rinsed my hair in the shower with the Suave conditioner (ie no shampoo, just conditioner with scalp massage and comb out), rinsed completely, then added a pea size amount of conditioner to my wet hair. Then wrap with a microfiber towel for a few minutes, take out, and add the tiniest little amount of coconut oil. Then let dry without touching it again!
Going along with the rustic theme I've been loving lately, my latest obsession in chic homes: antlers. Love the natural touch they give, immediately warming up any room. Off to find the perfect pair for my living room (after studying for my surgery shelf of course).
A simple fall look featuring a gorgeous red scarf/wrap that is the softest thing ever! Even more impressive than the scarf itself is the fact that I did not get nacho cheese, marinara sauce, or beer on it during our Sunday night football dinner at our local pub. *Pats self on back*
For some reason "fashion" bloggers never dress down; good thing I'm not a fashion blogger. Most of my outfits are more dressed down in their simplicity, but I don't think I've yet shared a picture of me in sweats. So I apologize for the iphone pics, but I wasn't planning on taking pics of this look at all! As an aside, in these photos I'm also deep conditioning my hair with coconut oil and just pulled it up in a top knot to run errands! I'm all about multitasking ;)
here you'll find bits of the beautiful things in my life - the clothes i wear and food i eat, things I make, a little bit of finishing up medical school at harvard and deciding what type of doctor to be, and most importantly my growing family. thanks for visiting and make sure to come back! ❤
