Life's Little Moments
1// Coffee in a jar, coffee in a jar. Am I a real blogger now?
2// A plate of fruit and a side of bacon. Duh
3// Helping us pack for Boston
4// Essie “mint candy apple” is my new shade
We officially have our new address in Boston and the movers are coming on Monday. I’ve packed four ginormous suitcases and now comes the tedious task of packing up all of our appliances and miscellaneous kitchen items. If you want to learn how to pack like a boss, start by keeping every single box your stuff comes in. We have boxes from our blender, tea kettle, glasses, spice tins – everything! It’s so much easier that way. Just be sure to designate a closet in your apartment/house to store all of these stupid boxes.

Lost in Travels

Lost in Travels Blog
Tell us 3 fun facts about yourself!
1. In the 3rd grade I was in Braille Club. I was never able to read it with my fingers BUT I could read it pretty well with my eyes…which I’m pretty sure goes against the whole purpose of it.
2. I met my husband through friends on Facebook and I made the first move. He was cute…can you blame me?
3. I have a huge heart for humanitarian causes. I’ve slept on the streets of Chicago for a week, road tripped cross country to lobby in DC and flew down to Argentina to meet complete strangers to volunteer for a week all in the name of a cause I believe in. I actually went to fashion school so I could some day work for a clothing company that gives back.

If you could travel anywhere, where would you go and why?
I am DYING to go to Nepal right now! The country is so beautiful and my husband and I have a dream of hiking to the base camp of Mt. Everest. Hopefully we’ll be able to do it before we move out of Asia!

    Bacon is always an essential part to any good meal =]

    A Golden State of Mind

    We have an entire ROOM in our house dedicated to original boxes. It’s a small room, but still. Good luck with the moving! Not looking forward to that in a few months.

    Does coffee in a jar make you a real blogger or a real hipster? That’s where the conundrum lies! xx

    Ha ha, coffee in a jar! ;-) Good luck with your move! I only keep some of the boxes for big and expensive appliances, btw.

    I love that Essie shade too- have it on my toes as we speak! It looks beautiful and is the perfect shade for summer- it reminds me of the beach :) And that’s awesome that Chelsea wants to hike to the Everest base camp- my boyfriend wants to do it but I tell him he’s on his own! I also never knew she was such an activist- love it!

  • http://www.blogger.com/profile/07177081269343759076 Treasure Tromp

    the move is becoming so real! You’re so lucky to have such a wonderful helper for packing!

    and I loved that last fact about Chelsea – I had no idea!

    That nail polish is so pretty! I’ve seriously neglected my nails for the past few weeks – I’m thinking a manicure is in order stat :)

  • http://www.blogger.com/profile/07134597165572332769 Rachel

    I love your bright nail polish! Happy packing to you! It sounds like you have it down pat though:)

    i love the nails and the mason jar coffee- so blogger of you ;)

    I tend to keep boxes like that, but not consistently. I should, though, seeing as how I do move a lot. Too much. Good tip.

    Love the nails (though I didn’t notice them at first because I was staring at that BLING!)

    And welcome to the real blogger’s club. Although… a drink from a mason jar is… nice, but you’ll be considered hardcore if you eat a meal from one. :)

    BACON! It’s so good! I’m glad I’m not the only one keeping all those boxes. Once my husband told me we would be traveling I’ve saved all the boxes from everything + more =)

  • http://www.blogger.com/profile/06625001742281959799 Ashley

    Essie’s mint candy apple is one of my favorites!!!

  • http://www.blogger.com/profile/03340277403271465452 lost in travels

    thanks for having me rachel! and i love that essie nail polish color! j’s family is coming soon and i may just have to have them bring some for me : )

  • http://www.blogger.com/profile/04322820186844573191 Amanda

    I try to keep as many boxes as possible. Whenever we move, I’ll be ready.

  • http://www.blogger.com/profile/05167617612746837239 Kate Hall

    I have the exact same nail colour, I bought it last week and I love it! I’ve had so many compliments too, so I think this combined with our post ideas really does mean great minds think alike ;)

    As for keeping the boxes for stuff, I just could not! I think I would get super frustrated every time I went to the designated area for boxes and lose my cool tripping over them all, haha. Not a good look!

    I definitely keep all my boxes! My fiance is starting to get annoyed with the stash in the closet haha, but he’ll thank me when we upgrade to a house and need to move again. :)

    Good luck packing! That’s pretty much my least favorite thing in the world…yuck! I wish we had the room to keep all of our boxes :(
