As I mentioned in my Instagram Wednesday, I was really lucky to be able to take a half-day and celebrate one of my best friend’s birthdays. In order to make that happen, I’ve been waking up early every morning to work (am I a morning person now?!) and working way past 5:00. This isn’t totally out of the ordinary for me, and I am really, really lucky to be able to decide on a schedule that works best for me! A lot of people have emailed, texted, FB messaged, etc. asking what it is I actually do…great question. A little bit of everything – and I’m still figuring it out. That said, I’ll be posting next week about what the life of a freelancer really looks like, how I got into it, etc. So stay tuned for that!
Random thoughts/links around the web I loved this week…
I read The Girl on the Train this week and WHAT!!! No one told me that book was kind of scary?! I mean, I seriously couldn’t put it down – but it was definitely different than I was expecting. My book people…what’s next? The Husband’s Secret? I might need something a little more light-hearted/no murders involved…
This Nike ad. I am obsessed with this. I’m really glad to see a more realistic portrayal of working out – props to you, Nike!
Speaking of, I downloaded Nike Training Club this week, customized a four-week workout plan, and I’m still sore from Tuesday. Do you know about this app? It’s AWESOME. I answered questions about my goals, how I often I workout, and it put together home workouts for me to do! Thanks to Hallie’s awesome playlist, I did this in my guest room (didn’t have and definitely didn’t need the weights/medicine ball it called for) and was literally yelling it was so hard! But you know, in a good way.
Oh, and speaking of Hallie…I loved her post on Mastering Social Media – a must-read for bloggers!
Do you know about Zinke swimwear? I’m obsessed! I’ve been stalking it on Shopbop, but when Brittany posted that EVERYTHING on the site was 50% off, I quickly picked up two tops and a bottom. I’m not sure how long it’s going on, but definitely go check it out.
Finally, J.Crew new arrivals. Y’all they are good! I added some to the shop, but I really love these linen pants, cropped jeans, fern jumpsuit (I snagged the Lilly x Target one this weekend!), striped sleepshirt, and, duh, sunglasses.
