|stripes, green necklaces, and looking at the ground...some things never change ;)|
- Dizygotic twins are twins that are formed when two eggs are fertilized by two sperm during the same cycle. Monozygotic twins are formed when a zygote splits into two embryos. Conjoined twins are monozygotic twins that split too late.
- 6,000 women reach menopause every single day.
- My sister Viktoria is a med student in Germany. She has the biggest heart, and is fundraising money to help a young patient she met during her urology rotation. If you have a few extra dollars in your paypal account, and want to find out how you can help, read her latest post about it here (it's at the bottom)
on the internet
- How getting properly fitted for a bra can be life (and body image) changing.
- Isn't Krista the cutest? Every "get ready with me" video should be this fun :)
- Laura shares her advice on how to focus - great for any you current students!
- My dream crossbody bag, the Chloe Marcie, is a bit out of my price range. This bag from Sole Society is a pretty great stand in for the time being (and about 1/20th of the cost!)
- The cooler weather means it's almost jacket time (almost...). This longer parka from Old Navy is adorable - how cute is that back?!
- Our 4th wedding of the year, and the last, is at the end of the month. This dark floral dress from Loft is absolutely beautiful, and something I definitely want to try on in a few weeks for it!
- on the blog: sharing what I carry around with me every day
- on the instagram: the only real clothes I wore this week (ps. my pearl necklace is now back in stock!)
- on the twitter: what most of my photo stream looks like
- J.Crew: 25% off fall favorites
- This tuxedo top would be cute casually (with jeans and fun flats) or for work (think under a cute blazer).
- A navy gingham vest makes me want to wear distressed jeans with it all fall long.
- J.Crew's newest pencil skirts come in the prettiest colors - I love the green version.
- Loft: 40% off everything!
- Do you have a fall wedding to go to? This autumn floral dress is absolutely beautiful and would be very appropriate.
- Speaking of autumn, fall = plaid, so this plaid blouse would be a perfect way to dress up for the season.
- My ponte pants are in my top 5 most worn items in my closet. Loft's current pair looks just as comfy!
- Shopbop: new additions to sale
- The Joie section is what I always check out first. The dresses are always the best part - so pretty and feminine.
- If you've been eyeing any Birks lately, a bunch were just added to the sale section. I have lived in mine all summer!
- There are also several pairs of Tory Burch shoes added, included a silver or gold Reva that looks super fun.
- This week I got to close my first c-section! I'm lucky that our attendings are such great teachers, and allow us to practice these skills under their watchful eye. Now I just need to work on not being so nervous!
- This is my last week on OB. I can't believe how fast this rotation has gone by! I spent probably 14 hours at the hospital most days and I would have stayed longer. I have really loved my experience there this month, and am so happy that I am on the service again in March.
- The temperatures dropped this weekend and it was amazing. We spent Saturday cuddled up on the couch, watching football, and eating mac and cheese. The best :)
