Hellllllllo December. Being back in Tampa was wonderful, but it’s always a shock to the system to try to get back into my routine. I also feel like I’m finally getting my head above the water. November is always my busiest month, and it feels good to be across that particular finish line!
I spent the week digging out of my inbox, getting back in the gym and on the tennis court, sorting through December’s calendar, and gearing up for 2017. (TWENTY SEVENTEEN. How???)
Here’s what was on my radar this week:
I was nervous about publishing my “election post” on here a few weeks ago. I wanted to keep it positive and productive; I was so relieved that everyone got what I was going for. And now I’ve just been working on it personally and researching different resources online so far. It’s overwhelming, though. This was a great piece with Letitia James on The Cut.
TWO // Tartan Earrings
I just bought these earrings in every color. I couldn’t resist the tartan bows!!! I switched out pearl studs for diamond studs this year, but I’m trying to mix it up now and then. These little earrings are small enough where they don’t stand out too much, but they’re still cute and fun! At $10 a pop, I couldn’t pick a favorite.
Ugh. My mom had me watching The Voice while I was home. She filled me in on all the contestants, and I sat there basically glued to the tv. I missed this performance, but I have been watching it on repeat. I love Miley (sue me) and her “backyard” rendition of “Jolene” so I was over the moon that she performed it with Dolly Parton.
FOUR // Spotify’s New Ads
How amazing are these Spotify advertisements?! Not only is the data that they used smart, the slogans are so clever. I don’t want to know what Spotify thinks about my listening habits, haha!!! And I definitely pulled up “It’s the End of the World as We Know It” after finishing that post.
FIVE // Where’s Waldo?
Ending the day with something that will no doubt put a smile on your face. A construction worker has been placing, moving, and hiding a giant Waldo cut out for children in the hospital to find every day! A creative act of kindness.
