Does anyone else feel like this year is moving at warp speed?? I spent the first bit of the year in a daze, but I feel like I just looked up and all of a sudden it was mid-March. I couldn’t believe how quickly St. Patrick’s day crept up.
ON MY RADAR 3.19.21
The afternoon light I love it back once we sprung forward!
Here’s what has been on my radar this week:
I’ve been so disheartened to hear about the increase of racially-motivated hate crimes against Asian Americans, especially female Asian Americans. It makes me sick to my stomach. Here is a collection of resources to learn more about being a better ally from organizations to support, books to read, and actionable items you can do right now.
TWO // Hatch Collection
Hatch reached out to me on Instagram and offered to send a couple of items. It came at a time where I was feeling so discouraged by not being able to fit into my clothes anymore and not feeling like myself. I’ve quickly learned that wearing clothing that I feel good and comfortable in immediately changed my perception. Hatch Collection has GREAT maternity styles… Stylish and modern, nothing cheesy. I’ll do a try-on with the two pieces they sent on Instagram stories, but in the meantime they offered a code for you guys to use through April 2! Use CARLY15 for 15% off (some exclusions apply: sale items, third party collabs, denim).
THREE // Book Ceiling Tiles
A school librarian has been painting the tiles of the library and turning them into book covers. All while documenting her progress on TikTok. It brought a huge smile to my face and I know those kids will looooove going into their library and seeing the colorful ceiling. (I know I would have loved it!)
FOUR // Melamine Toile Plates
How cute are these blue and white toile melamine plates? I love that they have the shape of paper plates, but they’re not disposable. Such a fun and easy way to elevate everyday dining without breaking out the china. I’m dreaming of meals on our patio again!!! These would be the perfect addition!
FIVE // Yo-Yo Ma’s Surprise Concert
As if getting vaccinated wasn’t enough of a good thing…. these lucky people got a surprise concert from Yo-Yo Ma! He gave the impromptu concert after receiving his own vaccine during the 15-minute waiting period afterward. Can you imagine? I was already choked up after getting vaccinated just from the shot; I can’t imagine then getting a concert by the one and only Yo-Yo Ma.
