and then we tried obsessions

We hope you all had a good Thanksgiving and are now either relaxing at home or shoving someone trying to get a Black Friday deal. Here’s what we’re obsessed with in this week’s And Then We Tried obsessions.


Lash Extensions + New Hair

After reading all of your thoughts on lash extensions, I got some this week! I followed the mindset of “go big or go home” and damn, are these things big. Hannah came with and took a million photos so we’ll have a full recap up soon. But, Shauna at Flawless Lash in Lakewood did an amazing job! I also got my hair cut + dyed on Saturday, so I am essentially a whole new person! I went with the deep magenta color, thanks for all our your comments encouraging me!

Black Leather Jackets

My leather jacket is finally wearing out, so I’m on the hunt for a new one. I ordered five options from ASOS on Monday and they should be arriving this week. In a shocking twist, I’m pretty picky about my leather jackets and also don’t want to pay a lot for something I might trash in a bar. Anyone else in the market for a leather jacket? Have you seen any Black Friday deals I should take advantage of?



Quick PSA that Madewell has 25% off your purchase right now and if you’re feeling uninspired on what to pick up, check out this beauty. That is all.

Everlane Denim

I like to think she’s sitting like this because of how stiff the jeans were when they arrived. Gotta break those bad boys in.

To be fair I’ve been obsessed with these since ordering them early last week. Who else can’t stop clicking that tracking link? Well, all that clicking worked and they arrived just in time to pack for my Thanksgiving travel. I ordered two pairs, the High-Rise Skinny jean in Dark Indigo and the Mid-Rise Skinny jean in Mid Blue. Both in the ankle length. One was a clear winner in my mind and I’ll be doing a full write up on my thoughts on each soon.

Capri Blue Fir and Firewood Candle

I could also call this “every candle from Anthropologie.” Why are they all so good?? We picked this one up last weekend when they were 20% off and have been burning it non-stop all week. A nice little transition into the Holiday decor before we actually set up the tree and all the trimmings.


Ellie Jane Card Holder

I got this leather card holder for my birthday last week! It’s made by fellow Clevelander Sarah Larson of Ellie Jane Bags. She makes some great products and can be found on Etsy and at flea markets and shows around Cleveland. I’m loving this little card holder so far and it’s great for keeping my ATWT business cards handy!

Christmas Movies

I do my best to not start celebrating Christmas until after Thanksgiving (my favorite holiday) has passed. But now that we’re officially in Christmas season, I’ve been compiling my list of Christmas movies to watch. I should have a final version to share with you guys soon! In the meantime, of course, I’m watching way too many Hallmark Christmas movies.


This has been another week of And Then We Tried Obsessions, where we share whatever we’re obsessed with each week. Let us know what you’re obsessed with this week in the comments and if you see anything in the wild that you think we’d be obsessed with, be sure to tag us @andthenwetried or use #ATWTobsessions
