I’m officially going on a blog break after today’s post! I usually take a full week off, but I will be back on the 26th for my blog’s 10 year anniversary which will include a HUGE giveaway (seriously, you won’t want to miss it!).
This has been THE BEST holiday season to date… and it’s not even Christmas yet. I wasn’t exactly planning on it, but I decided to do ~all~ the New York City things, including ice skating at just about every rink in the city. I’ve literally lost track of how many times I went but every time someone mentioned they wanted to do it, I was game. (I’m buying ice skates though for next year because I could have purchased like four pairs with the amount of money I spent on stupid rentals.) It’s been a blast though– such a fun winter activity.
I’m also just about done with work stuff for the year. One more shoot tomorrow while I’m in Tampa and then I’m free as a bird! I think I’m going to spend a full day while I’m home sitting on the couch and watching Netflix or something. But I’m also looking forward to seeing my grandma, playing all the games, shopping with my mom and sister, and going to the movies!
(My boyfriend’s parents got me that red coat! I actually had it in my shopping cart for a while and never pulled the trigger! It was the best surprise!!! Just FYI though, it runs very big. I’m wearing a Petite XS and there’s still room with a big sweater on!)
Here’s what was on my radar this week:
I have so many thoughts about this. 1) This guy is AMAZING. He needs his own Netflix show because I would watch it, for sure. I subscribed to his channel– he’s so smart and creative and still entertaining to watch. 2) I think it’s absolutely disgusting that people steal packages. I mean, talk about entitlement. 3) I HATE glitter, but it’s gorgeous in slo-mo.
Have you seen this article floating around? You know your friends and readers get you when you get 34 DMs and 14 text messages with a link to it. While I totally love the idea, I don’t think it’s totally spot on. (But that’s a personal preference and I’m sure my own experiences with the books/dolls factors into that.) Still fun to read!
These brownies look like the most delicious brownies in the world. My mom usually makes Baker’s One Bowl Brownies, but I think we’re going to have to give this recipe a whirl… Don’t you think?
I clicked this video because I love Sarah Hyland. (She played Molly in the newer Annie and is also in my favorite SVU episode, ha, not to mention Modern Family is such a great show!) I knew she had struggled with health issues, but wow, this interview gutted me. I clicked it thinking I’d let it play in the background of my computer while I did other things and ended up watching the entire thing and even teared up. I thought it was so raw and emotional and I imagine it would help other people going through similar health crises of their own.
FIVE // Uniqlo Down Jacket
I don’t have this yet, but I think I’m going to buy it when I’m back from Tampa. My friend Daphne was wearing it over her sweater and under her wool coat and I couldn’t believe how thin it was. I think it’s the perfect way to add a bit of warmth to winter jackets without the additional bulk! Can’t wait to try it on!
