I had a bit of a different week– in a good way. I realized I needed to get out of house and kind of sequester myself to finish a big deadline. So I booked a “workation” at a hotel a few minutes away from our house for two nights. I brought my own snacks, ordered room service for meals, and most importantly: met my deadline. I don’t think I realized how much I needed to shake up my daily routine anyway and even though I was working the entire time, it did feel like a vacation of sorts. Definitely should have done this sooner and will likely do it again.
ON MY RADAR 4.2.21
Everything is starting to turn GREEN here in town!!! Makes our afternoon walks so enjoyable!
Here’s what was on my radar this week:
I love carrot cake. I’d never turn down a classic vanilla birthday cake, but I think carrot cake always brings me the most satisfaction as far as cakes go. I think I’m going to try to make these carrot cake cheesecake bars this weekend. Mike loves cheesecake… and I love carrot cake…. so it sounds like the perfect match made in heaven.
Have you guys heard of or tried Aerie’s Offline collection? I’ve been seeing it everywhere and it apparently rivals Lululemon…. my sister sold me on trying a few things! I placed an order and can’t wait to see how it all is. I’m so
THREE // Frame TV Downloads
A reader sent me a link to these Frame TV artwork downloads from Lindsay Letters. Such a genius idea. I’ve always just used my own photos for the framed artwork, but I love the idea of mixing it up with artwork from talented artists. They’re pretty affordable and there are plenty of different vibes to choose from. (PS I always get questions about whether I think the Frame TV is worth it…. the short answer is: yes!)
FOUR // Summer Bow Mid Heeled Mules
Holy moly, are these the most perfect shoes you’ve ever seen???? Talk about a summertime staple. My friend Tess shared them on Instagram and I promptly ordered. I think they’re going to look great with everything from cute dresses to jeans and a plain tee. Sign. Me. Up.
FIVE // Pianist Duets With His Neighbor
Ending today on a very, very heartwarming note. (Grab the tissues….) Two neighbors played a duet together through the walls of their apartment and the story behind it is so, so sweet. 100% recommend watching the minute long clip in its entirety. Love, love, love.
