THREE // Scalloped Pajamas
I may (I am) jumping the gun temperature-wise here, but I think these scalloped pajamas are too cute for summer… plus, they can be monogrammed. My apartment doesn’t do extreme temperatures well. If it’s freezing outside, it’s freezing inside (and the heater barely makes a difference). If it’s boiling outside, it’s boiling inside (and the A/C does not cut it). Thinking about the sticky months last summer, these might just be a must.
FOUR // Oil Pulling
I’ve been seeing “oil pulling” pop up on social media, but I’ve been too afraid to find out what it really means… This week, curiosity got the best of me and I finally was brave enough to read about what it actually is. A Fashionista.com writer (named Carly!) gave it a try and honestly it seems even grosser to me than it did before. Is it something that you’ve tried or would try? Or is anyone else too chicken to do it?
FIVE // Fire Drill Engangement
Wedding videos, including engagement ones, totally get to me. This one was no exception. However, it wasn’t so much the actual proposal (although it was certainly creative and cute). When the firefighters started going from classroom to classroom? I couldn’t handle it. I mean, it was precious. Ring pops?! Brilliant and the bride-to-be just looks beyond smitten… Share your favorite viral wedding/proposal video!! I’d love to watch!
What’s been on your radar this week? Anything important I should read/watch?
Truth be told, I don’t watch television. Correction, I always have Netflix on to some kind of TV show while I work because otherwise my apartment is too quiet. And I make sure that I watch Dance Moms every week. (Guilty pleasure.) However, I can’t lie. I need to watch this show. I kept getting sponsored tweets about the show on my timeline. Annoying, but apparently they worked. I went home one night and started watching clips and previews…. Bahahaha, I think it looks great. Anyone else interested in watching?!
THREE // “Seeing New York”
Ann Street Studio (creators of the incredible Cinemagraph) put together some of the most incredible photograph/GIFs of the city. Love the special way they captured the energy and speed– sometimes fast, sometimes slow.
FOUR // These Two Blog Posts
Two of my daily reads posted blog posts this week that really meant something to me. I’ve been reading Chrissy’s Tumblr since I think 2011? She used to live in DC and now lives in Chicago… I don’t know her but just love following her life and career and ups and downs from a distance. She totally summed up the weird, quiet joy of being an adult in this blog post. Paying my rent every month should hurt, but it actually one of my favorite things. It’s a good feeling to just… be an adult sometimes. And then one of my favorite mom blogs also posted about something that I’ve always thought, but had no way of expressing: “can’t also.” A businesswoman can also be a fashionista… etc. It’s a good read.
FIVE // Sweatshirts
I’ve never really had the sportiest of looks. However, now that I work at home, I’ve been living in sweatshirts. Cute sweatshirts, but sweatshirts nonetheless. I’ve had to really stop myself from buying all of them. They’re just super comfortable and I don’t feel totally lazy 😉
