Did anyone else feel like this was the longest week ever? On Tuesday, I was convinced it was Thursday!!! On top of my regular work, I did some little sprucing up around my apartment. I do weekly deep cleans and daily tidying, but I had been neglecting little things. I got a few cabinets in my kitchen back under control (including the dogs’ cabinet which was a nightmare), picked out new pillows and a duvet, replaced the living room rug, and got a new vacuum. I was honestly most excited about the vacuum… I had a feeling my old one wasn’t doing a good job, and I was RIGHT. It was crazy to see what the new one picked up. (It was actually pretty repulsive when I realized the difference.)
As if my new vacuum wasn’t exciting enough (haha), I also found out I was verified on Instagram. I’ve been trying to get it for months, going down as many avenues as possible. Over the past two weeks, I decided to throw every idea I could against the wall to see what would stick and something must have, although I don’t know which did. (Pretty sure it’s either through my manager asking someone or my friend’s husband asking someone.) The funny part is that I had all but given up. On Wednesday, I messaged my manager saying I didn’t think it was going to happen, that my window of opportunity had closed. But, all hope was not lost, and it happened! Woo!
Here’s what was on my radar this week:
ONE // “She’s a Blind YouTuber”
You know I love Casey Neistat! I would recommend watching all of his videos, but if you only watch one, make it this. Casey teamed up with Molly Burke, a blind YouTuber, and the result is a video that is as touching as it is interesting. I appreciated that Casey was so candid with his questions and Molly with her answers because he asked a lot of things I was wondering too… like, how does she know she’s not getting overcharged!
TWO // Positive Dating Outlook
I loved this piece from Refinery29 about having a positive outlook while dating. I think dating in this day and age has a terrible reputation and for a good reason. However, I don’t believe that it’s impossible. I touched on my own dating advice in this Youtube video and, for me, it all boils down to attitude.
THREE // Margaux’s New Slingback
After visiting the Margaux pop up shop on Nantucket two weeks ago, I added two more of their flats to my collection. They truly perfected the ballet flat. Well, now I’m lusting over this gorgeous slingback they just released.
FOUR // 7-Year-Old Interviews Katy Perry
How absolutely sweet is this interview between Katy Perry and seven-year-old Poppy. I loved the questions they asked each other. The conversation was sweet and positive and don’t you think the world needs more of that?
FIVE // KJP’s New Dress Line
