random bits of goodness

Happy Election Day!  Don't worry, no political posts here.  Anyone have any plans for tonight...election parties, etc?  I think tonight sounds like the perfect night for chili and a glass of wine.  It's freezing here today (It's 47 degrees.  To me, below 50 = freezing) and rainy on top of that.  This morning, I pulled out a big comfy poncho sweater for the first time this season, which excites me to no end.

This post is a whole lot of randomness ...photos that have stocked up in my iPhone library.  If you follow me on Instagram (megan_stylemeswanky), you've probably seen some of these.

Talk about a good night relaxing on the couch...

 I was at Sephora the other day and discovered the Stila Smudge Crayon and WOAH, it's awesome.  This one is in "Smoke."  It's such a gorgeous, brownish/greyish color that can be used as a liner, shadow, and eye primer/base.  This stuff doesn't budge. 

Speaking of chili... It was a perfect meal last week, too.

 The upcoming Christmas season is starting to take over the decor of my to-do lists.  I haven't started Christmas shopping yet, but I have promised myself to do better than last year, which was completely last minute.  Side note: It's crazy how quickly time passes.  Can you believe we are in November?  

Essie "Don't Sweater It"


  1. I can't believe it's already November. I agree, it's freezing in Charleston today! I stood out at the polls at 6:15 in the rain and cold! I'm with ya on the wine. My plans tonight = white wine and election coverage. My fave :)
