another week of favorites

Hello!! I have been on a mission to get shit done today because I don’t want this week to be a flop. This means ironing my clothes, getting some exercise in, and planning my weekly meals. I also ran some errands I’ve been avoiding and RSVP’d no to events I knew I wasn’t going to make (I dread doing this because I always feel bad). I’m in the process of reading How to Get Shit Done by Erin Falconer and it inspired me to work on this blog again. Thanks Erin.

what I’ve been reading

I spend a good 1/3 of my day reading articles on different digital beauty sites. While some people may find that to be a waste of time it makes my lil’ heart happy. I get to learn more about the industry I’m in, as well as find new tips n’ tricks to make it through life unscathed.
