Week In Review

Week In Review | Cobalt Chronicles | Washington DC | Style and Travel Blogger

While I’m a little bummed about potentially missing the first snow of the season in D.C. this weekend, I’m not too disappointed since this was my view waking up this morning!  Before getting into all the details on where I am, let’s take a look back at the week!


On Monday I shared my favorite accessories brand with y’all! Have you entered the giveaway yet?! It ends tonight at midnight – don’t miss your chance to win this gorgeous pair of the Stella & Dot + Rebecca Minkoff earrings!

Monday night Laura and I hosted a blogger meet-up for DC members of The Blog Societies at Whiskey Charlie, a new whiskey bar at the Wharf. If you’re in DC or visitng the area, definitely check this place out! Not only were the drinks and food amazing, but the views are killer! You can see the Capitol, the Jefferson Memorial, the Potomac River (and all the boats), and the airport from their rooftop! Oh and they also have multiple fire pits outside so no worries there!


Tuesday I shared another gift guide to help you through the holiday season. This week, Gifts for Her! If you missed the previous two, check them out here: Gifts Under $25, Gifts for Him. Christmas is fast approaching, y’all!


On Wednesday I talked a bit about my casual style and ways that I like to dress it up every now and then.

I spent Wednesday night packing my bags for this weekend’s getaway and catching up on the new season of Vanderpump Rules … #guiltypleasure


Michael and I hopped on an early flight out of DCA to the Caribbean! Remember this post from way back in the Spring about how I scored two round-trip flights to St. Croix for $30 … ?! Well that trip finally arrived!

Weekend Plans

If you’re subscribed to my Newsletter or following along on Instagram Stories, you probably saw that Michael and I are in St. Croix for our good friends’ wedding! We’re in the Caribbean through Monday and are planning on island hopping on Sunday, after the wedding, over to St. Thomas to visit another set of friends that live on the island – they own a bar there, Bernie’s! I’ll be soaking up all the warm weather while we’re away. Be sure to follow along on Instagram!

Other Happenings

The Stella & Dot + Rebecca Minkoff giveaway ends tonight at midnight, but I have another fun giveaway heading your way on Monday – stay tuned!

Completely random, but I popped in Nordstrom this week to make a few returns, and I ended up picking up this tee!  I’m pretty sure I found a unicorn … I grabbed the white one (but it’s available in tons of colors!), it’s so soft, the v-neck isn’t too deep, it drapes perfectly, and it’s only $17!
