Happy Friday, friends! I had to take it easy earlier this week with a pinched nerve. Luckily it happened over the weekend so I just gave myself permission to lay as low as possible. After 24 hours of immobilization and a trip to the chiropractor, I feel 100% better already. (That said, I’m trying to train myself to sleep on my back to help prevent this from happening again and I’m struggling– I’m usually a stomach sleeper… has anyone successfully done this?! Send tips, please!!!)
Before I went into the post, I had to share a photo of the dogs this week. Ham and Ted have always gotten along but kind of kept their distance for the most part, but they’ve been so much closer lately. It melts my heart to see them curled up on the couch together or buddying up like below.
Okay here’s what has been on my radar this week:
Do you guys remember Emma Johnson? Well, she graduated college!!! It’s crazy to think it’s been so long since I first met her and she’s just been killing it. She just wrote a great piece for Refinery29 about how her side hustle paid for her college education! So proud of her!!
TWO // Rainbow Hairpins
I’ve been all about my pearl bobby pins lately. It seems like every day a new must-have hair accessory hits the internet. The one catching my eye the most right now? These rainbow pins!
THREE // Let’s Hear It For the Average Child
This article title is a little bit of a misnomer. I thought it was going to be an article celebrating mediocracy– but it’s actually the opposite! It’s such a beautiful article and, while it’s technically about students, I’d say it’s universally applicable for people of all ages. There is more to life than perfect grades and being exceptionally gifted at something. I sent this to about twenty people and everyone agreed that it was beautiful.
FOUR // Monogrammed Phone Accessories
The Daily Edited keeps coming out with great products. I gave up my pop socket when I switched to a monogrammed phone case, but now you can have both. I love the strap and the pop socket. So brilliant!!!!
FIVE // Baby Meets Fawn
If you haven’t seen this video yet, take the two minutes to watch. It’s unbelievable. This fawn comes right up to this baby and it’s straight out of a Disney movie.
