Trying to balance a heavier workload with an upcoming move is starting to drive me crazy! I am all about making lists right now because it’s the only thing keeping my head afloat. A few people asked if I could do a post on moving and honestly? Making lists and trying just to get stuff done ahead of time is the only way to do it. There’s no “trick” or “hack” to making it go better. (Although. To be very frank, I’m kind of throwing a lot of money at it to ease some of the stress. I’m outsourcing as much as possible, and that definitely makes it easier to manage.)
On another note, I did a little staycation here in Connecticut this week because I needed to shoot some sponsored content in a bathroom and I don’t find my current situation all that inspiring (#nowindows). It was really fun to “get away” without actually being that far away from home! Even though it was a work trip, I did come back home feeling energized between totally tackling my to-do list and just stepping out my normal routine. All without having to deal with traveling, which can be the most taxing part of a trip.
Here’s what has been on my radar this week:
ONE // Starry Pajamas
Remember how I said I was into the star trend? Well, my favorite pajama line just released a star print collection and it’s so cute. They mailed me a pair (along with these cashmere slippers from my fave shoe company), and I plan on wearing them every night for the foreseeable future.
Speaking of stars (haha), Elon Musk just sent a Tesla into space as part of Space X. Pretty incredible stuff. I actually thought the photos they released were fake at first because it seemed so impossible and kind of crazy. (Kind of related but I also just listened to the audiobook of Astrophysics for People in a Hurry, so I’ve been finding myself in a black hole, haha, of space articles!)
THREE // Cute Work Dress
I don’t know why, but I’ve been getting many work-attire questions lately. Unfortunately, I’m not the best (or even a good) person to ask because I don’t work in an office and my work attire is generally a pair of jeans and a sweater at best and workout gear at worst. I was looking for something unrelated, but I found a super adorable dress from Club Monaco that would definitely work in some offices. It’s very cute on.
FOUR // Soft Almond Sugar Cookie Cutouts
Sugar cookies (or simply “cutouts” as Meesh calls them) are my weakness. I almost don’t even like eating them because I know once I start, it’s nearly impossible to stop. Molly Yeh always makes the most pleasing looking food and baked goods. I just want to sit in her cozy kitchen and be her taste tester all day, every day. Her almond sugar cookie cutouts look delicious.
FIVE // Bow Pump
How pretty and stylish are these bow back pumps? It’s kind of like “business in the front, fancy ball in the back.”
SIX // Baby Kangaroo
This rescued baby kangaroo has the sweetest little hop of all time! Watching him jump into the pouch just about melted my heart!
