Right now I’m up in Stowe, VT with Mike and his family. Lots of skiing and game nights! It is kind of a funny time to be going on vacation having just had an extended break from work, haha. So I was in crunch mode this week getting everything prepped and ready!!
Excuse the clutter & fingerprints on the mirror, but I finally got a proper mirror for outfit selfies!
Here’s what was on my radar this week:
One of my childhood dreams was to be on Broadway (or a Rockette!) and so naturally, I LOVED this video from Michelle Khare. She does these crazy challenges on her Youtube channel, but this is probably the most impressive. She and her team and friends put on an 8-minute Broadway-inspired show. It’s amazing!!!
TWO // Leather Drawer Pulls
These are absolutely gorgeous drawer pulls. I can’t get over the leather detail. The light pink and navy are my favorites, though I don’t think you could go wrong with any of them. I’ve bookmarked this in case I find myself in need of drawer pulls down the line.
THREE // WHAT JUST HAPPENED?
You know I love Casey Neistat. Well, this may just be the most inspiring video he’s done in a while. It’s about time and perspective. And the perfect thing to watch at the beginning of this new decade. I was loving it and then, man, the end really got me emotional!!
Hoboken Girl just put together a list of the best tea rooms in NYC. When my sister and I were little, we went to Bermuda on a family vacation. We stayed at the Marriott (which since closed) and they had tea every afternoon at 4 pm. When we returned home, my mom would still let us do tea every day at 4 pm for “tea time.” (We were obsessed.) Ever since I’ve just loved sitting down for an afternoon tea. I’ve been to a few of these listed but definitely need to take a trip into the city for more!
FIVE // A Little Too Giving
This is a very poignant piece about giving the best that you can give to people in need. This is something that I try to keep in mind when giving myself. Particularly this Christmas when I sponsored a family… I really wanted to make sure I was giving quality things, not just crossing something off the list with a “good enough.” (And whenever there is a major crisis somewhere, there’s an additional issue of people giving their torn and worn clothing/toys as “donations.”) I thought this was such a great piece about compassion, empathy, and giving.
