Week In Review – On the Road Again!

Week In Review Cobalt Chronicles - Week In Review - On the Road Again! by Washington DC blogger Cobalt Chronicles

Happy Friday!  I hope you’re enjoying a day off from work to celebrate Veterans Day (technically tomorrow, but observed at the work place today).  Thank you to all of those who have served and are currently serving!

The photo above was taken at my parent’s house when I was home in Louisiana last weekend.  I’m heading back down south this weekend to Mobile, Alabama!  But before we get to weekend plans, let’s take a look at this past week in review!


I spent most of the day on Monday in Shreveport (you can see what I was up to there in this post!).  I shared an Instagram Lately post here on the blog where I linked a lot of my recent Insta posts here for you guys to shop.  I also included a little behind the scenes blurbs about each photo.


Tuesday night I attended my first holiday event of the season!  Trunk Club hosted a party to celebrate their holiday service where you can enlist one of their stylists to help you with your gift giving list!  How cool is that?!  They had a Gifts for Her, Gifts for Him, and a Gifts for Everyone displays set up.  A couple of my favorite items were UGG slippers (for guys and girls), the softest PJs ever, S’well water bottles, and the cutest pineapple shot glasses!


On Wednesday I shared a recap of my day trip to Virginia wine country.  If you live in the DC area or are planning a visit, definitely look into checking out the vineyards outside of the city.  You don’t have to go far to find peace and quiet, beautiful views, and amazing wine!  Also, the company that I featured in the post, DCAcar, was an awesome way to get to the vineyards without making anyone in our group drive!

Wednesday evening I had to make a 911 run to Sephora to scoop up a travel size bottle of my favorite dry shampoo – Living Proof – before this weekend!  I also got suckered into the mini-sized products by the checkout line.  I ended up picking up the mini of the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in bronze.  It’s actually the perfect size, and the price is so much more wallet friendly than the full size!


Thursday I played model for a fun shoot with a hotel here in DC!  It was actually fun just to sit back and be told what to do instead of coming up with all of the ideas, poses, backdrops etc. myself!  Stay tuned – I’ll be sure to share more when the photos are available!

Week in Review – Weekend Plans

As you’re reading this, I’m most likely already in Alabama!  Michael and I booked a SUPER early flight to Mobile,  (where Michael grew up!) for a fun wedding weekend!  Michael is in the wedding, and I’m just along for the ride.  I’m excited to see all of our friends in Mobile!  Something else I’m super excited about … I finally found the most perfect jumpsuit – I’m wearing it to the rehearsal dinner tonight.  It fits perfectly and is so fun!

See you back here on Monday!
