I hope that everyone is having the most fantastic holidays with family and friends!
I don’t know about y’all but I spent most of my time at home eating way too much dessert (calories don’t count on Christmas though, so it’s fine), and sitting out on the beach since the weather’s been absolutely gorgeous down south this past week. Not to brag but it’s been 70 degrees without a cloud in the sky since I landed in Charleston, which has been such an amazing change of pace for me after all of the snow we’ve been getting up in Connecticut lately!
After long days at work and the random snowstorm we had yesterday (seriously, where did the snow come from???), I’ve been looking forward to this weekend for what seems like forever now.
Work hard, weekend harder, right?
I like to think of my purse as similar to Mary Poppins’ purse—the more things I can fit inside of it, the better. My work purse is really my lifeline for all things during the day, and I actually pride myself on fitting all of my necessities in my Rebecca Minkoff purse. It might take some time to fit everything together but it’s definitely worth it to have all of the little things available throughout the day.
What are your work purse essentials??
Was I the only one who literally could not stop hitting the snooze button this morning?? It was just one of those mornings where I could barely keep my eyes open while picking out what to wear to work and putting on my makeup, which is weird because I can usually wake up pretty quickly once I’m up and out of bed… I guess that I just have a case of the Monday Blues!
It’s Monday again, y’all!
With fall approaching ever closer on the horizon and the summer temperatures slowly starting to drop, I decided on a whim last week to take off Friday from work because the weather was supposed to be absolutely beautiful. And luckily for me, the weather forecast was correct!
Over the last few months, I’ve been getting more and more into eating healthier and working out. Maybe it’s because the weather’s been so nice that it’s actually enjoyable to go out for a run or the fact that I’ve been hanging out by the pool in a bathing suit on the weekends, but whatever the reason I’ve been feeling very motivated as of late.
And while I don’t think that I’ve lost much weight, I definitely feel stronger with every gym class I attend (i.e. I don’t feel like I’m going to pass out within the first 10 minutes anymore) and I’ve been trying to eat fewer processed foods and have been upping my fruit and veggie count for the day. Plus that endorphin high, which always makes me feel like a fitness goddess as I leave the gym, really can’t be beat after a long day at work!
