This has been a CRAZY week. All great things and I literally can’t wait to share more with you guys!!! Part of me is holding back because things aren’t quite finalized and I don’t want to jinx anything…. so please cross your fingers and send all the good vibes. 🤞🏻
If I’m being totally honest, I have found myself insanely distracted over the past couple of months, but particularly the past two weeks. Even though I’m pretty obsessive about getting enough sleep, I’ve been doing a lot of tossing and turning and staring at the ceiling. On Tuesday night, I finally (FINALLY) slept through the whole night and I felt like a new woman. So here’s to hoping that’s the way things are trending!!!
And unrelated to all that, I have had an eighth grader “interning” with me this week during her spring break. She’s one of my friends’ students at his school (he’s the headmaster) and each eighth grader has a four-day internship over their spring break. I have been blown away by her maturity, poise, and intelligence. (I honestly keep forgetting that she’s only thirteen!) We have been working on some content so she’s going to do a Blog/Instagram Story takeover next week.
Accurate representation of me trying to balance everything in my life right now, haha.
Here’s what has been on my radar this week:
ONE // Elizabeth Holmes and Theranos
I finished Bad Blood (could not put it down) and have been reading anything and everything related to Theranos lately. I wanted to read the book before I listened to the podcast or watched the HBO documentary. The HBO documentary was okay, but didn’t get into ALL of the deceptions that Holmes really committed. I felt like it barely scratched the surface! I’ve heard the podcast is incredible (can’t wait!) and that the 20/20 special (available on Hulu) is better than the HBO documentary. Anyone else obsessed???
TWO // Pleated Front Sailor Skirt
I love love love this pleated front sailor skirt from J. Crew. I think it’s so adorable. I have a few skirts with buttons already so, sadly, I don’t need it. But I’m sharing this in case you are looking for something like it! PS All J. Crew full-priced items are 30% right now.
If you’re familiar with Emma Chamberlain on Youtube, you have to watch this collab she did with Louis Vuitton and Karlie Kloss. It’s edited just like one of Emma’s videos and the juxtaposition between the two women is hilarious, and somehow works perfectly. Bravo to Louis Vuitton for thinking outside the box.
FOUR // Serena & Lily Sale
I spent way too much time drooling over everything at Serena and Lily right now. They’re having their spring design event and everything is 20% off, so if there’s something you’ve had your eye on (like the Riviera Collection bar stools that everyone, including me, loves), now’s the time!
FIVE // Four Generations Challenge
Have you seen this viral challenge going around? It’s the four generations challenge, where four generations of people come walking into a room saying “mom!” or “dad!” It’s so heartwarming and you can just feel the love radiating through the camera!
