Weekly Recap

Hi everyone! After a long (almost) week and a half of laying around recovering from my wisdom teeth surgery, I am finally starting to feel better! Since I was stuck in bed for almost 9 days straight, I did quite a bit of online browsing, movie watching, and book reading. I loved having the time to relax and work ahead on my summer class- now I’m ready to get back out there! Here is everything I have been loving this week.

1. Day Designer // I can’t believe I waited so long to invest in this planner! After using a Lilly agenda for three years, I decided that I needed something a bit more structured. I have a lot of different appointments, classes, and a work schedule that changes every week- sometimes it gets hard to keep track of it! The Lilly agenda wasn’t cutting it, so I decided to try this one out and I LOVE it! More on this later, I will be making a blog post all about how I organize mine.

2. Poshmark // Since I have been stuck at home, I have been updating my Poshmark quite frequently! A new job calls for a new wardrobe, and since I can’t wear a lot of my old work clothes I decided to list some to get them a new home!

3. J.Crew vintage cotton t-shirt // It’s no secret, I love this t-shirt. I went forever searching for the perfect white t-shirt, and this is it! For the countless doctors appointments I’ve had this week, this shirt has been amazing because it’s so simple but still feels better than wearing a plain t-shirt.

4. Faithful by Alice Hoffman // Just a warning, this book is quite dark- but with a happy ending. I started reading this book the day after my surgery and I was immediately shocked. But I couldn’t put it down, I finished it within two days! I loved having this to read while I was on bedrest, it is a really inspiring story about how a girl turned her life around and found happiness.

5. Something Borrowed // I vaguely remember reading this book when I was much younger, but I never knew it was movie! It is currently for free on demand and when I was looking for a movie to watch I knew I would love this! If you love Kate Hudson and rom-coms then this is the one for you!

Outfit of the Day: Casual Summer Look

Wow, I cannot believe June is already halfway over! It has been such a busy and crazy month I have hardly had a few seconds to sit down and relax!

Today I am showing you one of my favorite basic outfits for summer. I love pairing a fun colored t-shirt with white jeans, it’s such an easy look! When it’s 100 degrees outside every day, all I live in is a lightweight t-shirt and white jeans.

Weekly Recap

I know I’ve been gone for a little… but now I’m back! It was a busy couple of weeks getting into the swing of summer. I started a summer class and went to Vegas to find my best friend her wedding dress! It’s been a crazy couple of weeks but now I’m excited to get back into the swing of things. So, anyway, here is everything I’ve been loving lately!

1. 13 Reasons Why // I know that I’ve talked about how much I loved the show 13 Reasons Why, but I finally got my hands on a copy of the book and it was amazing! While the writing isn’t totally amazing, it does a much better job at talking about mental health. It was much more interesting than the show, as it talked more about Hannah’s actual state rather than just things happening to everyone else. It was a great read and I definitely recommend!

2. Taylor Swift // Okay, I will admit I love love love Taylor Swift. Her music is finally on Spotify and I’m so excited to listen to all of my favorite songs again!

3. Sugar lip balm “Tulip” // I was very against these lip balms after a bad experience with one melting on me in San Diego a couple of summers ago. But I decided to go for one again, after seeing this beautiful color, and I love it! I’m going to just take precautions with this one and keep out of the sun! This lip balm does an amazing job and the color is an added bonus!

4. Tory Burch Perfume // This perfume from Tory Burch is a favorite. I’ve been struggling to find a perfume that lasts longer than 15 minutes and this one does the job! I’ve been using this a ton this week and it’ll last all day!

5. Mickey Drexler stepping down from CEO of J.Crew // I’m extremely devastated over this news. I love J.Crew and Mickey, I think he’s done an amazing job of guiding this company! As upset as I am, I’m excited to see what the new president will do and where he will lead the company.
