My traveling spree is finally coming to an end today! It’s been a crazy few weeks of nearly back to back trips, so I’m kind of excited to get back into a good rhythm of being home with the pups.
I still have a lot of Paris content to share (here’s the big travel guide post though) and there will be some Nantucket posts coming up as well. I just need to catch my breath to organize my content calendar over here first!
This weekend, I’m going to be laying low on Saturday. (Kind of excited to actually to sleep in!) But then on Sunday, I’m going into the city for a Tony Awards viewing party and the incredible after party at the Plaza. I rented a dress from Rent the Runway again… cross your fingers it fits well!
Here’s what is on my radar for the week:
ONE // Clip On Man Buns
So this is technically a product for men to pretend like they have a man bun. (Weird.) But… as I was watching it, I honestly kind of love the idea for girls. I always feel like my hair buns look so measly and wimpy. Could this be the answer?!
Your responses (and emails) after my most recent post about anxiety warmed my heart. But also made me a little bit sad knowing just how many people are affected by it as well. Many of the emails I received asked me for specific advice on what I do to manage it. Honestly, I don’t feel 100% comfortable sharing the details of that besides the basics… and I don’t think it’s a one-size-fits-all solution. Every single person will have a different approach for discovering what works for them and what works will look different for everyone as well. The BEST thing I can recommend is to work with a professional (who you can find through your school, referrals from your general practitioner, recommendations from friends/family, or your health insurance’s website).
A reader sent me this post with tips for managing anxiety from different experts. There are a ton of great suggestions there!
THREE // Hyancith Backpack
I’ve seen these little basket backpacks popping up, but this one might just be the cutest one I’ve seen so far. I love that you can add a monogram! It seems like such a good solution for a bag to carry around to the dog park and beach when I want to keep my hands free. The bag is also super cute on the back of a bike as shown in the marketing photos.
FOUR // Meal Prep
I got sucked down the rabbit hole of meal prep videos on Youtube this week. I’ve been trying to figure out a better way to cook dinners for busy weeks. I have no problem eating the same thing every day (as you could tell from this post about what I eat in a week) so I kind of love the idea of making everything for the week at once.
FIVE // Mandy Harvey
Wow, America’s Got Talent seems to be killing it this year. I can’t stop watching the clips on Youtube. I have a feeling Mandy Harvey is going to win though. She lost her hearing ten years ago, and through muscle memory plus other techniques (like feeling the vibrations through her feet), she’s still able to sing. And sing beautifully at that. Her original song had me in TEARS.
