Medicine:

Who knew that art critique has utility in medicine?

There has been a lot of talk on #medtwitter this week about the merit of pimping (on the spot questioning) of med students. Here is a curated commentary on the topic.

Blogs:

Julia Engel has done it again! This dusty rose and burgundy look is fall perfection.

I recently shared my favorite candles for fall, so it’s no surprise that I enjoyed Cupcakes and Cashmere’s candle guide!

I love wearing makeup, but it’s not practical every day. This post from From Roses about her reasons for wearing makeup is a good read.

Haley has started a new packing series as she navigates the residency interview trail. Read about her creative ways to pack beauty essentials in a carry-on!

Lagniappe:

Fellow bloggers: The Federal Trade Commission updated their disclosure guidelines earlier this year, which are based on the principle that consumers should be made aware when they are being advertised to and when the influencer gains financially from their posts. If you’re a blogger, check out this Q&A to make sure your website, blog posts, and social media posts are compliant with the guidelines!

On a lighter note, one of my classmates shared this healthy burrito recipe with me this week, and it looks delicious! She recommends letting the burrito thaw in the fridge overnight so it’s perfect for lunch the next day.

Wishlist:

I am intrigued by Bath and Body Works new Peppermint and Rosemary candle. It seems like a love it or hate it scent.

I’ve been looking for a pink plaid scarf for a while, and I think I’ve found a winner. Now if the weather would cool down enough for scarves!

Loft is alllllll over the embroidery trend for fall. This floral embroidered sweater is beautiful!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend! I’m off to a conference to present my research project. Let me know what you’re looking forward to this weekend in the comments!

If you’re tired of “Pumpkin Everything” season, this blog post is not for you. If, however, orange becomes your favorite color this time of year and all you want to eat is pumpkin spice flavored things, you should keep reading because we are soul sisters. I know it may seem silly for a grown lady to want to visit a pumpkin patch but over the weekend my family indulged me. When you live in the south, fall does not mean chilly weather, so I go out of my way to enjoy other fall traditions and embrace the spirit of this time of year. If you’re not yet convinced why you should go to a pumpkin patch this year, read on!

Now that it’s fall, I’ve officially brought out my fall candle stash. I have candles that I adore for every season, but fall and winter are my favorite seasons for candles. They make the house feel so cozy when it’s cold out! Though I dream of one day filling my home with candles from the likes of Diptique, Jo Malone, and Nest, they are too pricey for this student. Today I’m sharing my favorite fall candles on a budget!

OBGYN Clerkship Review
