I Hate Matcha Pt. 1

Yes, I hate Matcha but I love Green Tea!! I just really dislike that bitter matcha powder taste so any desserts or sweets with Matcha in it, I stay far away from. However, I had a bag of Matcha powder at home and my mom wanted me to finish the bag. The reason I have this bag of powder because my boyfriend at the time LOVES Matcha and I made him some Matcha cheesecake for his birthday. A year later, I’m left with a bag of matcha powder.Read More »

Wooly Adventures: Dumpling Kitties!

Now that i’m leaving for another job, I have mixed feelings-of course i’m happy to leave but i’m also super grateful for all the opportunities they’ve given me and how appreciated I felt there and i’m also going to miss everyone. It’s not really like school where I know after a certain period of time i’m definitely moving on, but this is more of an unexpected kind of change. Anyway, I wanted to give everyone a gift but I don’t have the time or the money for that so I got everyone Thank you cards. However, I am going to get a few people gifts because I felt like they’ve done a lot for me during my time there-my manager being one.

When I applied for my current job, I was interviewed by my manager. At one point, she ran out of questions and just asked me what my favorite animal was. I swear the answer I gave got me the job (she confirmed it!). Cats were the correct answer!! My manager loves cats. When my brother got me a set of kitty cat mugs, I sent her a picture cause I knew she would appreciate it. She sent a picture of her cat back. It only made sense to get her something cat related!

I knew I waned to crochet something so I decided on this:

Stitch Fixings #2~

19398892_10154651352566451_1798972886_n.jpg

After the first Stitch Fix shipment, I wanted to try it one more time and it finally came! I was super excited to see what I was getting and I thought that my stylist would be the same as the first time, but it wasn’t. I would assume they would try to keep the same stylist throughout someone’s Stitch Fix journey cause the stylist would grow to know your style personally, but I guess I was wrong. Or maybe my stylist just didn’t like me. LOL

Once again, I just really liked the packaging and how all the stylists are so great at organizing everything to look so neat!

This time, I didn’t take a picture of all the items I received. Instead, I took pictures of me wearing the items.

 

I actually really liked a few of these. The pants were awesome! They fit really well unlike the first pair I received and it would definitely be something I would wear. However, it was too expensive and I am pretty sure I can find something similar in Macys/JcPenneys/etc.

The white and blue shirt was too big. I feel like their clothing are just too big for me, although there are a few that fits pretty well, like the dark blue one right after, a large majority of the clothing I received don’t fit well. Which is why I was surprised when the next shirt I tried on, the dark blue one, fit super well! I really liked it and thought about buying it but again, the price just turned me off. I remember seeing something similar on Macy’s but it was white and i’m sure Macy’s would have something similar anyway so I returned that as well. The last top I got… I disliked a lot. At first, when I looked at the list of items that came with the box, I thought I would like the last top because it looked so soft and looked completely different than the actual item. The material was stiffer than I thought and it just wasn’t a great fit on me or a great cut in my opinion (I hope cut means the style of the top…) LOL

So far every time they sent me a box, I get a necklace. This time I got a choker and I liked it! It’s pretty simple and not too flashy. Additionally, it was affordable!! So I kept it. I just need to feel comfortable wearing it in general since I don’t normally wear jewelry. Maybe i’ll start at my new job!!

This will probably be my last time trying out Stitch Fix, everything was just too expensive and although I would like the items, I can’t bring myself to purchase them. Additionally, I feel like it’s hard for them to pinpoint my exact size, which makes it difficult to find clothes that fit well. It was fun though! I have some ideas of what I would look for now when I go shopping and who knows, maybe I will try again later on! 🙂
